Ooh cool! I submitted an offer for $215 on Fri and the seller let it expire. I guess I'll try submitting one for $200, lol.Offer was just accepted for 200, good luck to everyone else buyin'. Mine will be here by the 27th, so I'll update with endurance numbers once I get it fired up.
The Samsung 830 drives we got like 9 years ago are still all going. So not all consumer drives are made equal.Nice to see some enterprise gear being spotlighted here. These things have some incredible durability too and will be still working when the best of consumer drives have already failed long ago.
I've used similar drives under VMware without issue. I don't currently own any, and the support page only mentions ESXi 6.0, but the .VIB probably works with at least 6.5. I know I had one of their later drives working under 6.7 at one point.Dang... thinking about getting one of these for my ESXi server, will it support it? As if my memory bottleneck could get any worse.
Are your gaming raid 0 numbers suffering for the failing drive? Im surprised that RAID array isn't faster than that? The 3.2GB drive is stealing your RAID array’s lunch money!Yeah, I got it because one of the 5 drives in my array are shitting out. Went from 72% health to 1% in one day. Still works, but I get the random hiccup.
Might be? It's hamstrung by two different controllers and SATA2 and 3 ports mixed. I had just gotten a shit ton of those Edge SSDs from work when they were retired. So I slapped in as many as the board would hold and used windows software raid. It's honestly been pretty worry free ever since it was installed. They're all garbage Sandforce drives too.Are your gaming raid 0 numbers suffering for the failing drive? Im surprised that RAID array isn't faster than that?

No, they aren't horrible for sure. I have an old server that I may pick some of these up for since my server is pcie 2.0. They seem like a decent deal.Are they, though?
Sequential, sure, but sequential isn't the interesting number. 4K QD1 benchmarks look about the same as modern NVMe drives.
Hot? You can make a best offer:
Took my offer at $200 yesterday. This should work great in my R710 SQL server (the stock PERC 6i is the bottleneck right now).
Thanks! got one for 199.96. 3.2TB will replace a 500GB NVME gaming drive (thats 90% full) that I have installed via a PCIe card in one of my 16x slots. I seriously doubt I'll see a big difference in load times between the two, and at $200 for 3.2TB...yeah, no brainer.
Used to have few LSI, Micron and OCZ (similar enterprise grade ~1tb ssd's on pci-e) in old company i was working at the time used for saas search engine indexing, was chewing through them within a year. (and those were SLC not weaker MLC - and they were really expensive)Not enterprise drives that were 10+ thousand US dollars when they were new.
