    Sandisk (owned by WD these days), added a new SKU to their lineup, a 2TB model of the SanDisk SSD Plus. This new model  was not officially announced, but already appeared at a number of retailers....

    Great !
    Now it needs to drop to 150 euro or less.

    At that 240 eur price it's even more expensive than some 2TB NVMe drives
    ... what a joke !

    2TB NVMe cheap ass drives routinely have terrible performance relative to their standards, and they also have a lot of issues when it comes to reliability and heat. A WD Black NVMe is super expensive still.

    But yeah got a 2TB SSD WD Blue for about 180 shipped on Ebay, and it's an amazing little thing if you ask me. SATA is obviously a bit dated, but no chance I spring a new board or an actually solid NVMe drive at 2TB because they are so expensive. I would not pay over 180 anymore for any SSD though. It's already too much. My first SSD was a Samsung, and it was too spendy.

    Good to see more 2tb drives but on 12 cents a gb is highly priced to fit anywhere really.

    On the website it is written:
    - R. : 535 W. : 450 for the Plus
    - R. : 560 W. : 530 for the Ultra
    The ultra is 30 Euro cheaper in store for the 2To while on other capacity it is more expensive (Plus is lower line and Ultra is upper line for SanDisk) ???

    BTW there is also the 4 To but this time only in Ultra

    That's misinformation mate. My Samsung 960 NVMe has been running absolutely fine for the last 3 years and is way faster than any SATA 3 SSD. I also have two Intel 760p NVMe SSD's running perfectly in RAID 0 using VROC in my other machine. They've worked seamlessly in that config for 2 years and again, are way faster than any SATA 3 SSD.

    As for NVMe throttling, it hasn't happened for me because i keep my PC case well ventilated.

    My first ever SSD was a Sandisk X400 1TB. Bought it nearly 3 years ago to put into my i7980. I have since repurposed as a "portable" game drive in a USB 3.1 enclosure and it only lost a small amount of speed in the sequential write. I'd buy one of these when the price comes down.

    Samsung drives are not cheap LOL. They are a major player. Samsungs are among the most expensive on the market in places.

    Sandisk 2TB = 307£
    Crucial 2TB = 224£

    That is a big enough difference for me to ask "Is it worth the extra money?" And, I think the answer is going to be "no".

    Also very reliable and fast. Worth the money IMO.

    In the case of the MX500 from Crucial, is it 27% better and more reliable?

    I would doubt that, if that were the statement.

    -

    £100 per TB is now the norm, this exceeds that number and does not appear to offer anything over and above to necessitate a 25-35% increase in price.

    Not saying they are bad, because I do not believe that, but, that is quite an increase in the dollarific department to raise an eyebrow or two.

    Western Digital, top company, and I still have an ageing 2TB HDD from them, and would no issues getting another drive from them in the future...but SSD's, they are soooo fast that you gotta bring out big guns and have plenty of ammo to beat the price demands from other competitors, and, I've been using RAID-0 with Crucial for my OS drive, and have an MX-500 in my PS4 Pr0, both doing very well in deed.

    Sandisk...what is the point in that extra cash? Where is the benefit?

    OFFICIAL SHOP/STORE

    I don't use Amazon, I just go straight to the official store every-time. I might pay more (not that I would ever know) BUT I am a very firm believer that the official store is the best place, as, Amazon does not need to exist.

    Who the bloody hell buys from the "official shop" ???

    I never heard anyone in my circle ever ordering something from the "official", unless that is the ONLY location where a product exists.
    And that "official" price is always (much) bigger than what retailers offer.

    One needs to be seriously deranged in their mind to pay 300 pounds for something that can be had otherwise for 40% less.
    But hey, it's not my money. Waste it to your heart's desire.

    I buy from official because I am buying a product from a manufacturer, not some retailer who is lower down the food chain.

    Retailers just, frankly speaking, do not need to exist in 2019/20 - they do not make the products, that is my point.

    The day I cannot buy something from another location because of the ineptitude of the manufacturer - then I use a retailer.

    Problem is, when I bought from corsair, postage was from Taiwan, and 1 week+ was in way after 2 days from order....Amazon sends it in 2 days, 2 days after I have item. And price was the same as from Amazon...

    I'm buying stuff where it's the cheapest, has the best/easiest return policies and all things being equal, from where it comes the quickest. Samsung, Sandisk, amazon (etc)... ...none of these companies are your friends. We are their consumers, nothing more.

    As to this drive, I'm done buying expensive, premium 2.5" SSDs when the average NVME drives annihilate them in nearly every metric and for less money. Bought 3 so far and I'm not looking back. :p
