NO DRAM SSD - Recommended for Light SATA or Storage SATA usage per this guide.

In addition to comment above, no DRAM, but also AVERAGE consumers aren't going to notice the difference between a drive with DRAM and one without it for every day use unless they already have a DRAM drive.

DRAM drives do have better life expectancy and lower errors rates, but for general use, especially if coming from a spinning drive in a budget machine, this drive will be fine.

$90 for the 1TB isn't a bad price given the current market for SSDs, especially from a reputable brand, but if you don't NEED one, there is always going to be a better deal on the horizon.

I've been seeing a lot of cheap DRAMless 1TB SSDs at around $85 or less lately. How is it slick that they require you to buy two of them?

Would these be good as external drives for Adobe premiere? Or maybe even internal drives?

How do you tell from the description or somewhere else that they are not dram type?

you can't, have to Google, read reviews, there is a spreadsheet that lists most available ssd from a reddit sub.

Lately, I've also seen more drives with DRAM tout that they have it, too—so generally speaking, if the manufacturer description doesn't mention DRAM (or whatever marketing term they use for it) specifically, the drive probably doesn't have it.

How is this one compared to the 240SSD PNY selling Amazon? Is this one better over the PNY? I am looking for one to replace the HD on my desktop. Thanks!

probably a safer bet than the PNY, not that PNY is going away - but Crucial sources its own NAND and probably will be a player in the market longer. Crucial also has data-loss prevention circuitry

The PNY isn't a bad choice either and is probably a safer bet than say the SU635 QLC from AData. PNY has be known the change components over time so a good product sometimes gets replaced by mediocre ones.

Thanks. I'll go with this one instead of the PNY.
