    I took the punge the other day and stumped up 115 English pounds for a 1TB SSD. Money well spent.

    I didn’t realise, but there are M.2 drives for the same price too:

    No good for my old systems, but may be good for some of you posh buggers who’ve upgraded from hamsters 😉

    My next PC will definetly be running an M2 drive. No idea when that will be as everything I have is more than powerful enough, indeed I’ve been re-purposing older kit. Dropping a £60 FX 8350 8 core CPU into an old 760G motherboard is proving an excellent VM host.

    With M2 it’s worth paying a little more for the PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe (if your system can take it). £47 gets you an Adata XPG SX8200 Pro 256GB 3500MB/s Read, 1200MB/s Write and you can tell the difference. That’s Samsung Evo type performance for £30 less.

    If your motherboard has an extra Marvel SATA 6GB controller onboard then dont buy a Gigabyte SSD to hook to it. They dont get on well at all. The drive will run at about 2/3 of its rated speed and if you attach ANY other drive to the controllers second channel your system will crash with a memory manager error after about 10 minutes.

    Infact im not sure you should buy a Gigabyte drive anyway. I got one cheap but their drive software is very poor and their Website try’s its best not to mention they even sell SSD’s !

    Must be my lucky day.

    I ordered a Crucial MX300 512MB SSD on ebay last week for £43.

    I wanted a MX300 because it has a Marvel controller an I know my motherboard likes them.

    I had an email on thursday from the seller saying that the MX300 was out of stock so they were sending me an MX500 instead. Not really what I wanted because it has a different controller but ho hum.

    This morning I got my package and inside was a note saying the MX500 512GB was out of stock so they had sent me an MX 300 1TB instead !

    Just got a 128Gb SSD and a USB3/SSD adapter for a shade over £20. I think it will make a nice usable combo with the Pi4b. Now I need to look for an 1980s PC box such as a VIC20 or Atari to put them in!

    If you need one then according to an ElReg report, now may be a good time to buy:

    “The temporary loss of manufacturing capacity will reduce global flash supplies around 24 per cent between August and October this year, we’re told, and this, in turn, may fuel short-term price rises of 5 to 10 per cent.”
