The Crucial P1 NVMe M.2 SSD is extremely popular because it is one of the most valued for money NVMe M.2 SSD.
Unlike the addlink S70 2TB NVMe M.2 SSD which uses NVMe connector to give you speed of up to 3,500 MB/s, this SanDisk Ultra 3D 2TB SSD is slightly slower as it uses SATA III. The advertised read speed is up to 560 MB/s and write speed is up to 530 MB/s.
So I decided to build a new gaming PC. Benjamin helped me put together a list of computer parts to buy based on my budget as I have lost touch with it.
I am getting the RAM, SSD, Case Fans, and Case Fan Filter from Amazon, while the rest I might get from Dynacore next month.
Minix Neo Storage is a USB-C hub with built-in and non-removable SSD storage. There are two storage capacities available, 120GB and 240GB.
DS918+ is Synology’s flagship 4-bay NAS for prosumers. It supports up to two M.2 NVMe SSDs for fast system cache creation.
The Transcend TLC 480GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD (TS480GSSD220S) was Amazon Gold Box Deal of the day on 29th December 2016.
Its usual retail price is US$126.99 (S$185), but for the Gold Box Deal, it was retailing for US$86.99 (S$127) with free shipping to Singapore if your order qualifies for the AmazonGlobal Saver program.
Amazon was having a 48% off their Samsung 850 EVO 250GB last month (I bought it on the 11th November 2015). The listed price is US$149.99 (S$213) and the discounted price is US$74.99 (S$106).
Another good news is that it qualifies for the free AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping to Singapore if your total qualifying purchases are more than US$125.
The ReadyCache SSD is a affordable 32GB 2.5″ Solid State Drive (SSD) which compliments your existing 7,200rpm normal hard drive.
I am proud that Singapore made it into the tech news last week with the announcement of the world’s thinnest 2.5″ hybrid hard drive! It is only 5mm thick and is capable of storing 1TB of normal HDD and 32GB of SSD.
One of the main challenges in reducing the thickness of current 7mm hard disk drives by almost 30% without compromising on its performance and stability is its spindle motor design. To achieve a reduction in size, DSI researchers developed a proprietary axial field motor which runs smoother, quieter, more efficiently, lowering power consumption by up to 70% yet at a fraction of the cost of SSDs. The motor’s design has been patented, along with 30 other unique designs for the “A-Drive”. In addition, DSI has collaborated with multinational corporations and local companies, such as Seiko Instruments, Miyoshi, and Unisteel, to develop key components for the “A-Drive”.
The usual price of the SSD (on 3rd February 2012) on Newegg.com is US$205 (S$259), however there is mail-in rebate of US$50 (SDG$63). After the mail-in rebate, it cost only US$155 (S$195).
