Hey guys just wondering if anybody noticed any good deals for Ssd drives for black Friday? I'm in the market for a Samsung evo 850 2tb ssd drive.
I have looked around d but notice g as yet has caught me attention.
 
I just bought: Intel 660p Series M.2 2280 2TB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDPEKNW020T8X1.

2 Terabytes of NVME for $250! It's new technology that doesn't have the write cycles of the current stuff, but it does have a 5 year warranty.... probably just fine for storing samples!

That's a great deal man, I'll look into it but unfortunately I really need a sata ssd, primarily a samsung evo as I already have two and both work like a dream.

Hey people i am just about to pull the trigger on a Crucial MX500 2TB SSD, and wondered if anyone has any experience with them, i'm planning on cloning my existing 2TB HHD onto the new SSD. I am currently running 2x 1TB Samsung Evo 850 which i find faultless but i'm unsure how Crucial compare, any advice would be appreciated.

Isn't the Sandisk 3d SSD cheaper?

No problems with Crucial SSD's here - been using Crucial for years and was thinking of buying the very same MX500 2TB drive too.
Have you ever cloned a crucial drive, i have heard the cloning software is not as good as Samsungs.
 
Yes your its cheaper but i haven't heard much about Sandisk so i was unsure, do you run Sandisk SSD's?
I'm currently mainly using these SSDs (500go, and cheaper) with these external SATA cables and here's my benchmarks (writing speed is a bit faster than the screenshots, and reading spead is very good).

So far I'm happy with them, and considering buying the 2To now from DE store (which is using 3D Nand memory, so supposed to be faster... dunno with my SATA cable though) :P

Wow this looks good i will have to a bit of research on these but the performance looks stellar.

I second that. I currently have 2 of my 4 bays (Akitio thunder3 Quad mini) with a raid 0 2x 500gb mx500’s ive never had an issue! Great drives I also have an EVO 1tb in there as well. All have had 0 issues over the past few years.
