Why would it cost more than one hundred dollars for a 1TB SSD when you're buying potentially millions?
You can get a 1TB for 130$. What are you talking about?

[SSD] Samsung 960 QVO 1TB - Amazon Deal Of The Day - $99.99
6 points • awesomehippie12
I'm by far not the authority on this, but here goes:
Team Group L5 3D SATA 1TB (DRAM, TLC) - $99.99, Newegg
Honestly, I couldn't find any great deals, it's one of those things you have to wait and see for. The ones here are pretty much a discount from the regular price, but they can still be had occasionally for like $85.

The HDD's these days have slimmed down a lot... an SSD will obviously make your machine a lot snappier, but I can understand it might not be budget friendly at the moment.
Good news is SSD price has been dropping big time. Keep an eye out for a good sale. You can get a 2TB hdd for under $100, but the 1TB ssd will be pretty cheap these days.

Fuck that. Buy a Samsung QVO 1tb for ~$120.
Smaller SSD over HDD any day.
EDIT: If you're worried about future-proofing then neither of these will do anything. The Series X will use a proprietary NVME M2.0 drive. If you get the 4tb your load times will be significantly increased, even on the Series X. The bottleneck will be the HDD instead of the USB 3.0 standard.

Super worth it games like bloodborne load so much faster. This is the ssd I have in my ps4 and it’s lasted over a year now with no issues. The boot time of the PS4 didn’t improve much but load times improved across most games.

Samsung 860 QVO 1TB Solid State Drive (MZ-76Q1T0) V-NAND, SATA 6Gb/s, Quality and Value Optimized SSD It comes in 1 TB, 2 TB, and 4 TB and it most certainly does something contrary to the other comment as long as it’s an internal SSD and the UI is installed onto the SSD, an external SSD wouldn’t do much for your UI considering it would still be on the internal hard drive.
1 points • yankeephil86
It literally takes 5 minutes to format it, and any 2.5” hard drive less that 9.5 mm thick will work. I recommend and actual upgrade over the stock option and go with an SSD for $100, it’s the best video game investment I have made.

When it comes to the best performance with speed and cache, Samsungs seem to have the best drives, despite being a little overpriced (cause you know, Samsung). Here’s one for $110 https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Inch-Internal-MZ-76Q1T0B-AM/dp/B07L3D19MY/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=samsung+ssd&qid=1595828782&sr=8-3

Ok, I know u said not so expensive, but if you're going to replace an HDD, I really recommend going the extra mile and getting an SSD instead if possible, such as this one , they really make a difference in the UI performance and can seriously cut down game loading times, but if you really can't spend much than you'd have to sacrifice some storage space.
2 points • JohnBaggata
I would do 16 RAM and 256 HD. It's not an ideal configuration, but external HDs are wayyy cheaper than paying the apple tax, and external ram doesn't exist.
This drive and this enclosure are a great combo for external solid state storage without paying the premium price on an OEM external ssd. 1tb is plenty for sample libraries (unless you're doing scoring), and I've been able to buy those drives for about $90 @1TB, but right now the price is too high.
1 points • Silver_Foxxx
OK. You won't get as many frames per second in games that require a CPU with more cores/threads, but you still have a first tier gaming CPU.
An upgrade to a different first tier gaming CPU will not help much and won't be cost effective.
The textures load slowly because you have a hard drive. You can fix that issue by cloning your hard drive to an SSD.
The website that told you you have a 34% bottleneck is trying to sell you something.

Ok thank you very much for your help. So I can install another SSD on my motherboard, just not an m2, so I should get a sata SSD. Correct?
Also, looks like this would work with my motherboard if I'm reading correctly, does that seem right to you? https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Inch-Internal-MZ-76Q1T0B-AM/dp/B07L3D19MY/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=1tb%2Binternal%2Bssd%2Bsata&qid=1584126802&sr=8-3&th=1

This is the one I was looking at.

The cheaper one looks fine enough to me. Honestly I just want something to hold me over until PS5.

Or a Samsung SSD + USB C Enclosure
Cheaper than the SanDisk SSD option , also Samsung is the best brand for SSD
SSD is much more durable than a hard drive , you can drop it , throw it or whatever

10 minutes is super long even for a mechanical hard drive. As long as the ssd has a “dram cache” (this isn’t always advertised so you might have to do some googling) they’re all pretty great. Just do some googling to see if a certain brand is reputable. Almost all ssd’s have that dram cache, but some super cheap ones don’t have it and those can be even slower than mechanical hard drives
These would all be solid options:
The Hynix gold is the one I used for the MacBook Pro and haven’t had any issues. But I got it because the 256 gb version was on sale
I’d recommend the Samsung one since it’s on sale for only $110 (US). That’s a great deal on a 1tb ssd and Samsung is known for being a great ssd brand. I’ve also heard that their cloning software is great so you should be able to transfer everything on your old hdd over. But if your laptop is old I’d recommend just doing a fresh install of windows and manually transferring any important files you have
Also don’t worry about SATA vs NVME. This video explains it pretty well: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4DKLA7w9eeA

Last question, as far as storage goes, I added the one you recommended to my cart but I noticed this one is only $5 more and is the #1 seller on Amazon and it looks stronger? Thoughts?

I follow deals mostly on Gizmodo and Kinja Deals mostly and catch discounts there. I think NAND flash chips are getting cheaper^^source so memory is continuingly getting more economical. <$100 1TB SSD or M.2 should be the norm.
But specifically, 16GB ram on Newegg when it was on a brief sale for $46:
- [Team Elite 16GB 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Laptop Memory Model TED416G3200C22-S01] (https://www.newegg.com/team-16gb-260-pin-ddr4-so-dimm/p/N82E16820331501)
And the 1TB SSD is still on Amazon for $96:
- [Samsung 860 QVO 1TB Solid State Drive (MZ-76Q1T0B/AM)] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07L3D19MY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_hl7zFb9BRNCEV)
Some gaming laptops also have multiple M.2 slots in which case you could go for a 1TB M.2 NVMe which is the newest and fastest SSD data transfer speeds and also bootable and swappable between desktop & laptop motherboards that have the slot.
I also fortunately snagged this TeamGroup 1TB M.2 NVMe for $98 in a flash sale.

iMac 2019 SSD Upgrade, which drive to buy?
Greeting, im going to soon be doing an upgrade to iMac 2019 that came with a 1TB fusion drive. I wanted to know which one of these two drives I could use to the upgrade. Some people in YouTube have used the 860 EVO but I wanted to know if it possible to use the QVO (just asking because its cheaper, lol). please let me know.

Depending on their current price (they fluctuate or are on sale) I'd recommend either of the 3 below. I myself went for the WD, but pretty much any SSD from any decent reputable brand should be fine (i.e. WD, Samsung, Kingston, ADATA, Seagate, Verbatim, etc). Just make sure they're 2.5" and have a SATA III interface.
