Need a cheap SSD

Kaws
 Share

My Samsung 256GB isn'tr cutting it anymore  as I nearly filled it up, so want to upgrade to a bigger SSD. A 1tb would be nice but probably in my budget 512GB SSD is in my budget.

 

Was looking at these two, which one should I get or should I wait until Friday?

Most places are going to see ~$125US/$175CAD 1TB Evos. If that's in your budget, wait. Really, you should wait anyway, as you won't lose out on anything.

If you can hold out a while longer SSDs are supposed to drop quite a bit in 2019.

Prices are dropping yes, it is starting to happen right now so you can expect to see lower prices from this point on. Basically get one SSD that can offer you good warranty and reasonable prices.

The Sandisk SSD Plus is crap, the Crucial MX500 is a lot better.

How come?

 

 

I can wait but really need to get one sometime next month as I need more space .

The Sandisk SSD Plus has much worse performance, in some situations it can even be slower than a HDD.

I nornally don't resond to posts where someone asks for something that's cheap since poster is too chep to shell out shekels for quality, simply cannot grasp the concept of quality vs price, or simply is too broke to afford anything better (and I've been in the latter predicament at times). There is no way I will give any advice I won't take myself.

 

In this case, dizmo has given excellent advice. Even if it means tightening your belt, temporarily giving up a vice or two, and/or living on half rations of Ramen soup for a while, I highly recommend the Samsung EVOs and the 1TB has the best price to size ratio of all the Sammys right now.

One has to be proactive, not reactive, to ensure the safety of one's data so backup your data! And RAID is NOT a backup!

Truth.

 

I always save until I can get something of quality. They just generally last longer. Plus spending more now and spending more again later for the same end result never made sense to me, especially with SSDs dropping massively in price in the comping months.
