Just can't break that $100 barrier...
Holy crap that's cheap... Looks like my next TrueNAS build will have zero hard drives.
Wrong thread I think .Traded away a lot of random crap I had lying around to build my friend a respectable PC on a budget of zero dollars. Started out with a Sandy bridge motherboard paired with a i7-3770, then went from there.
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4 GHz Quad-Core Processor Traded for GTX 750 Ti
Motherboard: Asus P8H61-M LE/CSM R2.0 Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard Traded for GTX 750 Ti
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler Harvested from his previous PC
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR3-1866 CL10 Memory Traded Radeon R7 360
Storage: OCZ TRION 150 480 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive Harvested from my previous PC
Storage: Seagate BarraCuda 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive Harvested from his previous PC
Video Card: EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 12 GB XC GAMING Video Card Sold a used GTX 1070 Ti that was originally going into this PC, bought new a RTX 3060 instead. Pocketed about $100 profit
Case: Cougar MX330-G ATX Mid Tower Case traded for Corsair CX500 PSU
Power Supply: EVGA K1 700 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply Harvested from my dad's old PC
Optical Drive: LG GH24NS90 DVD/CD Writer Harvested from his previous PC
Plot-twist: he doesn't even use it. A lot of wasted effort.
I think the only people that may ever notice it is folks doing video work and are constantly scrubbing back and forth in a file. But I agree with you, I don't think most folks would notice on an average workload.Off the top of my head, DRAM acts as a cache and will store the drive's mapping data, like an index of where files and such are physically located. DRAM-less SSDs store this mapping data directly on the NAND flash or on your system's memory (e.g. Host Memory Buffer) which is slower and will put additional wear on the drive due to caching directly on the NAND flash.
For average Joe daily driver use, I've had a mixture of SSDs that are both DRAM-less (SN550 Blue) and have DRAM (SN850 Black), I'd never notice the difference in loading behaviors without a stop watch or running a synthetic benchmark. I'd imagine prosumers will have a different take on this where endurance (i.e. longevity) actually matters.

F Amazon, someone got them to restrict my account after I asked a question they didn't like, so they dug into my review history and claimed I was selling reviews. Their customer service refused to even do anything about it so AFAIC they lost a customer, shame Newegg doesn't ship to GENERAL DELIVERY.$89.99 today Nov. 3 with Prime.
They're great for the price. Their durability (TBW) is better than other budget drives in the same price range.https://www.amazon.com/TEAMGROUP-Internal-Compatible-Desktop-TM8FP6002T0C101/dp/B08CDM2HSS?th=1
2 TB M.2 for about 100 Bucks, Decent Durability, 5 Year Warranty. Speeds kinda blow (2,000/1800). It's not QLC.
For new SLC, it's going to be killer expensive but used drives can be quite cheap. I remember a thread on here about the 6.4TB drives for like $150 or something ridiculous like that a few years back. They run hot and can't boot, but are awesome 'just storage' drives.Never. There is no reason for a SATA drive either. The cost to value is stupid for a SLC SATA drive.
You said that right--levin? Like the stuff you use in bread? Or as in Leavin'? As in I'll be Leavin' once I sell these cheap drives, lol.Holy crap...
What MFs--you spent your time to write reviews and they want to punish you for that? What serious MFs...F Amazon, someone got them to restrict my account after I asked a question they didn't like, so they dug into my review history and claimed I was selling reviews.

I usually will find out when someone on the serve the home forum posts a deal, but they're generally found on ebay under the enterprise part numbers. Like I think this one that was recently posted for $85 for 1.6TB:Where are the right places?

Yeah, I am genuinely impressed by the durability, too. Especially for the price. I'm mulling one over just for a storage drive. I don't need it, but I will keep watching these and see if they keep falling in price. These go below a 100 bucks I think it's a mandatory purchase.They're great for the price.

It's not just you. It gets even worse when you have cars, homes, and other stuff you can upgrade. Just don't look at your wife the same way as that's some tinkering reserved for only the ultra wealthy with extremely high pain tolerances.Damn me and my eternal upgrade projects!
