SN750 SE naming is bullshit. It is not the same level performance like SN750 but only an improved SN550.

Sn550 is 50% slower than the original reviews.
https://www.tomshardware.com/news...c-runs-out

The backlash is probably why the sn750 se got a new name instead of trying to slip the change in.

500gb not worth it since it can only hold like like 6-9 PS5 AAA games at the most.

And SN750 SE is slower write speed than SN750 [techadvisor.com] especially for smaller capacities. Also the DRAM was removed vs the SN750.

I'm wondering rhe same thing. I've been reading that the failure rate is higher for the 750 SE.

Right. But for some (like me), after you beat a game, you might not go back. I have a bunch of games on my other consoles that I never play. The only thing worth leaving installed is games like jackbox, and they take up a fraction of the room a AAA title takes. This 500gb might be just right.

It's also only $50.

Between the 660GB (usable) internal + this, you'd likely be able to have 15(ish) PS5 games active. Unless you only play COD, then maybe 4 lol.

Argh! Enough with these confusing name schemes. I think it is time we hold corporations feet to the fire about this and STOP buying products with confusing names.

Back in the sands of time, Linksys sold several different variants of the WRT54G router - I believe there were 8 revisions. Some were good (hackable), most were not. Netgear did the same thing as well - one was hackable, the other 4 were not.

Then we have WD started selling SMR drives as under the CMR model numbers. I think they even sold them as NAS drives, too (forgive me if my memory is wrong on this, though).

Then NVIDIA got 'creative' with their model numbers such that lower numbers can beat higher numbers (or at least be functionally equivalent)
For example, a 3060 (6GB VRAM) @ 130W can beat a 3070 (8GB VRAM) @ 85W - the frequencies scale with the wattage max.
I think they call the former MaxP, and the latter MaxQ. So you have to mind your p's and q's when buying a laptop. I'm not even going to delve into the Titanium / Super nomenclatures

What are laptop makers least likely to discuss? The TDP of the video card. "Oh, that's just too technical, users don't need to know that", i.e. we skimped on that, and we'd rather you just not know.
What's the 2nd thing that most likely component that laptop makers are going to skimp on? The display! The thing that the user uses most! And, for the most part, they get away with it, too, even on gaming laptops, with the justification that they are desktop replacements, and they're just going to be used in the basement (or other darkened room). The color reproduction accuracy, OTOH can make life difficult. I use a custom program at work, and I cannot physically tell which fields are select-able or not because the white (select-able) and the gray (disabled) colors are effectively the same.

Samsung sells their M.2 storage a bit confusingly as well - the 980 is a DRAM-less version of the 970. I suppose at least it is 980 and not 907 or 975.

Now we've got WD, again, selling an SN550 as an SN750 SE. I'll admit that I missed that SE, but then, when I looked at the rated speeds, I said, "Those speeds look way too low to be an SN750." Sure enough, the next comment mentions that the SE has DRAM cache removed. So, this is a the SN750 "Sucky Edition". Maybe it really stands for "Smaller Edition" instead of "Second Edition", we won't know until WD weighs in.
</rant>

Back OT:
Not going to buy this one - but I won't TD the deal because I want people to see the recent company shenanigans. Hopefully someone gets something useful out of this.

So, if the deal sounds too good to be true or specs don't check out - it probably is. Standard disclaimers: Caveat Emptor.
