  1. Yeah, I found some of them on my local shops, thanks man. PS: holy hot cakes, you've been one of the most helpful internet people I know, where can I honor you ?
  2. Found it on amazon.DE but at that price I don't think it's worth it. Heck, it's a bit more expensive than what I'm using on my desktop (Gigabyte AORUS 512GB, the PCIE 3.0 one). Rarely using it as a portable storage device doesn't seem to justify the price in my particular use case. The one I mentioned is 80 euros from a local shop, 30 euros less than that WD (because of amazon shipping). https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07YFF3JCN/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=WD+SN550&qid=1581972123&sr=8-2
  3. Ok, thanks. I'll look into more cheap ssd's that are not based on QLC tech. As long as the price is somewhat the same, I'm fine, if they are considerably more expensive, I'll stick to the QLC once, since I said I won't be using it that often. On a side note, the 2x2 ones aren't a choice for me right now since all my devices use the 10Gbps connection. TB3 is not an option either since my desktop doesn't have TB3 ports (but my laptop has two of them).
  4. Do you know the names of the newer chipsets? I can look for an enclosure with the faster one (at least I can try and see if I can find it somewhere reasonably close to purchase)
  5. Thanks for the technical stuff. You are right, it's not a big factor for me, as long as it can reach 1GB/s (or 900-950mb/s as I've seen on some models) it's fine.
  6. Hello, So basically I want to buy an nvme ssd (USB3.1 gen 2) drive enclosure, there are some articles about this on the internet but I'm having some issues: either I can't buy them anywhere near in Europe, or I can't find any review/info about the performance of them. So that's why I want to hear about if you ever used one and recommend me one (or at least provide some figures so I know it's something I'd pay for). I want to use it like a portable storage device since my 64GB usb drive won't cut it anymore (it has great performance @ 225MB/s 175MB/s read/write but it's rather small). The items I've had my eyes on for the last couple of days are (the choices are based on the fact that I can readily buy them in the country where I live): Enclosure: https://www.lindy.co.uk/usb-c4/usb-3-1-nvme-m-2-ssd-enclosure-p12087 SSD: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/consumer-ssds/6-series/ssd-660p-series/660p-series-512-gb-m-2-80mm-3d2.html The choice of the SSD came down to the fact that I want a cheap 512GB one that tops out at around 1GB/s read & write. I don't mind the fact that it's QLC based and it has a lowly 100TB endurance rating since I'll be rarely using it. Also my devices, all have a USB3.1 gen2 (C type) interface so ?.
  7. I've looked over some enclosures, but I might as well buy an external SSD
  8. well as I said, i'm looking for something that's similar to what I have, not SSD level, but not "wtf level"
  9. Why can't I get a USB thumb drive? Your solution is nice but it's not near as small as a regular ubs drive. I'm also wondering what's up with these speeds, since USB drives have come a long way, performance-wise, except these USB-C ones are weirdos
  10. never had issues with my sandisk, if I would then I'd know (about a particular manufacturer), so I'm thinking a bit differently, but your point is valid nonetheless
  11. Yeah, but that particular drive has abysmal write speeds for my needs
  12. Hey there guys, So I'm gonna start by saying that my long time USB drive companion has been the Sandisk Cruzer Extreme 64GB which has excelent speeds at this price point (~$41): 175 MB/s write and 270 MB/s read speeds. Now that I'm starting getting a lot of USB-C things in my tech life I'd like to buy a new drive but with USB-C that has similar speeds to the one I have, anything much lower than this is considered a massive downgrade. I'm wiling to pay extra for one with similar performance. I've looked all over the internet, the problem WITH the internet is that they all make lists with shitty ass thumb drives as small as house keys, thus neglecting performance for portability(which is a big no no for me). EVEN the #1 from these lists can barely do a measily 70 MB/s write speed and around 150 MB/s for read (huge downgrade from what I got) (picture taken from thedroidguy.com) Do any of you have any insight on this market of usb-c drives ? A 128GB sized one is the one i'm aiming for since the 64GB I got kinda starts to fall into the low end of capacity for my needs. What do I use this for ? Just transferring files, so both read and write speeds are important, I don't want to spend half an hour copying 80 gigs of data "Fast" drives I've read about (I've already dismissed them as an option) Samsung Duo Plus 128GB: for its very nice read speed what the heck were they thinking with such a huge gap between read and write speeds PNY P-FD128ELX-GE Elite-X 128GB: not terrible, not great (200 MB/s read, 100 MB/s write as reported by manufacturer) (to be continued)

Budget & Location My budget revolves around €2400 (the budget includes peripherals). Using the prices I get here in Romania I end up with €2377, but I used Germany as I frequently buy things from amazon.de. 2. Aim I'm a software engineer and also a tech enthusiast and I just love buying new tech stuff. It's about time to upgrade from a gaming laptop (Asus ROG with gtx 970M, 24GB RAM, i7-4720HQ). I game, but I'm not so much into any new game that pops up, nor do I play competitively. 3. Monitors Single monitor setup. The bolded points are a must for me. Also I'm a firm believer that 50% of the experience of using a PC is given by it's display. 2K res 120hz + GSync 30in size Want to try VA panels as I've always used IPS/TN panels by now (I'm open to suggestions) 4. Peripherals I have a Windows 10 pro license key, no need to purchase I haven't included any peripherals yet (mouse & keyboard), so I'm open to suggestions (CAD200 allocation for them) Mouse: I want it to be heavy as I'm currently using an MX Master (weighs 150g/0.33lb), I don't care about having a shit ton of buttons, but it should have a back/f-ward button. Also RGB is a great bonus. The included mouse in the build is not that heavy (but they are hard to find, unless you want a modular one which I don't) Keyboard: the only ok keyboard I found from my local retailers which have MX Blues since I care more about typing than anything else. I wish it was RGB, but this is the only one within this budget that I could get that has MX Blues. I really can't stand mechanical keyboards with low actuation force and I found out that MX Blues are made for typing, hopefully I'll get used to it fast (i'm coming from a laptop-only world, but at least 5. Why are you upgrading? Because I'm a tech enthusiast and I want a rocket (within this budget)

I'm open to suggestion. Budget is €100. MINIATX and tempers glass, some rgb would be nice. No peripherals either, so I'm open to suggestions. Total budget is 2300 euro (so I'm not sure why this website comes out so cheap). But let's "round" it down to 1800 euros.
