Featured Comments

DRAM in an SSD is used to store a map of where the data blocks are located on the drive. On SSD's without DRAM, that data is stored in the NAND flash or in system memory if the controller supports Host Memory Buffer (HMB).

In most day-to-day operations, there is very little difference in performance between the three types. For workloads that benefit from high random read and write performance, DRAM can definitely offer an advantage. DRAM can also reduce wear on NAND cells since they are relieved from the duty of storing the data map.

Most people will recommend an SSD with DRAM for your OS disk/volume or if you use applications that do a lot of mixed I/O, particularly random I/O. SSD's without DRAM will still be more performant than an HDD, but are typically best suited for general storage needs.

There are a lot more nuances around this topic, but I hope that helps.

Very good deal. Beats the recent black friday price of $68.

I'm not sure if this drive always includes the 9.5mm adapter, or if that is an added bonus when buying direct from Crucial.

This drive is good quality and has dram.

Isn't it interesting that there's a 25 dollar premium for a gigabyte of dram?
How much value (additional performance) does that gigabyte of dram provide?

It will even work just fine without an enclosure. Just get a USB to Sata cable like this.

dram is more considered as sustained transfer speed so it doesn't overload your system ram with files

the main complaint is not read but writing larger files but in a console it's fine; in storage is fine; in boot drive it's fine but in media workflow it's not because after 30 secs of transferring/writing then it will slow down to 30mbit/s instead of the theoretical max sata

ymmv but for a 2.5" it's ok from the brand itself but in the market there's so much more cheaper ssd from team group too that is just for people who just want to get out of spinning drives

Any feedback on this vs the Kingston from yesterday? link

I bought the Kingston. I plan to use this as fast storage for a surveillance computer. HDD will be the archive. I wonder if this is better choice over Kingston
