  • legit naman sila. bumaba na rin kasi ang mga prices kaya ganun na ang difference within 6mos & lumabas na rin kasi mga gen4 na pcie nvme.

    noticed ko lang nung pina-rma ko sa octopus ung 970 evo plus ko:

    ung v, sa v-nand sa sticker.. di ko lang alam kung may revision, since 5mos lang ung tinagal nung una sa pangalawa.

  • Good pm po mga sir, ask lang po kung may disadvantage po ba magpartition ng SSD? I was thinking na ireplace ko na ung 1 SSD (120gb) and 1 HDD (1Tb) ko with a 1 SSD (1Tb) na lang. Thank you po sa pagsagot.

    akin naka partition sa dalawa.... isang 240GB crucial BX200 na 120GB partition each... no issues at pareho mabilis magboot yung dalawang OS na nilagay ko.
  • Sarap bumili ng 1tb NVME SSD ngayon bili ko 3 months ago nasa 9k+ sya, now nasa 7k+ na lang XD. Yung Samsung 850 EVO 250 SSD ko ginamit ko na lang sa pagefile (been using it for 4 years).

    Hindi na ako mahirapan mag-install/uninstall ng game (dati ksi I can only install like 2 or 3 games dun sa puny 250GB SSD na un) XD
  • sharing stuff I got from Black Friday deals. I must say second hand Datacenter SSDs are going on the cheap now on ebay and some surprisingly still come with warranty until the 2020s. I prefer getting used Enterprise grade SSDs for mainly 3 reasons: cheaper if not equivalent price than "brand new" consumer ssd price, superior endurance (even when already used) and amazing performance (see my last pic)

    Consumer SSDs normally advertise "burst" read and write speeds but then stuggle the moment you try transferring large files or multiple small files. Look for documentation on Samsung's "Turbowrite" on their Evo line or Seagate "Durawrite" for their Ironwolf 110 SSD line. For DC rated SSDs, the advertised speeds are the actual speeds.

    If you are building up a FreeNAS based NAS, these will come in handy if you want to use a SLOG or L2ARC device

    Got the tip for buying used DC SSDs from STH
    <click here for link>

    Intel Optane 900P 280GB
    Intel DC P3700 800GB
    Intel AXXP3SWX08040 4 Port NVME Switch (for motherboards which don't support pcie slot bifurcation)








    Transferring a 33GB file, I've never seen anything perform this "flat".

    Yup, that's why I got the Adata XPG SX8200 Pro 1 Tb yesterday (7.5k at DQ). I got mainly to cut down loading times for games, since the Samsung 850 EVO 250 Gb is already too small. It comes with free Acronis True Image for data migration, but it's an old version and I didn't like it too much so I used EaseUS Partion Master instead to migrate the OS. I didn't disconnect the old SATA SSD, though I'm not sure what else I'll use it for at present.






    Also, ran a benchmark:




    I noticed that the NVMe SSD does get far hotter than the SATA one, I think this is pretty normal. But I'll see how the temps are during gaming, if I find it too high I might put a fall small or two to blow directly onto the SSD.
