Looks like it dropped $5 from normal price.

Do we have a definitive answer on whether this has a DRAM cache or not?

Yes, it does have a DRAM cache. Just read any review out there on the drive.

This ssd would be perfect if it had hardware encryption. But for that reason, I prefer Crucial MX500.

What is the advantage of hardware encryption?

Me being opinionated and not educated, that seems like one more thing that can go wrong. My use case it at home where no one else has access. What scenario are you in where the encryption is necessary?

I used to be a network admin (7 years ago and knowledge is time perishable) and I basically make the assumption that if you have physical access and time, no security matters.

I have this for my ps4 pro. Works great. Huge improvement to the XMB and games of course load faster.

This has a 5 year warranty if I read the Amazon product page right. That makes this one of the best deals on SSDs that I've ever seen. If you need one, now is the time to buy. Usually at this price you only get a 3yr warranty.

I have this drive on my PS4 pro. No issue here. I do not know how fast it is compare to the original drive because I got mine last year and immediately put this ssd before I even plug it.
