Sean Webster: Seems like there are but only for M.2, at least those are now getting as cheap as regular slow SATA.
ThrashZone: Saw that, that's why I'm not so keen on getting these cheaper QLC like 660p, but then you gotta run out of the cache so if you don't and cache can clean fast enough you're fine.
UltraMega: I barely use my small 840 EVO and it still has plenty writes on it. Those larger SSDs with low durability look unattractive.
That Silicon Power P34A80 and Corsair MP510 look interesting if I can find them at a good price. MX500 is 110-116EUR, WD is 116EUR, MP510 is 125EUR, not a big difference. Sure there are some no name, low name SU650 Adata or Patriot burst SATAs for 85 EUR but why get those DRAMless... Meanwhile sites/people keep recommending EX920 175 EUR which is now old and expensive compared to what is otherwise available, once good drives and recommendations even from Q1 2019 are too dated.
No idea why Anand. has MP510 cost a fortune compared to EX920. Looking up their broken links to newegg EX920 is not $160 but $105 and MP510 not $220 but $125. Did prices change that much since end of February?
Seems SSD prices are dropping well since end of 2018, start of 2019, especially for those expensive drives that have a long way to drop.
What's the expected price of SSDs by end of 2019? How low may it go? My guess is as we see now those 3.0x4 drives will cost same as SATA drives do. But we won't see cheaper SATA as those already look to plateau for 1TB size.
It's nice to see that SSDs are finally adjusting their crazy price.
If only Corsair MP510, Silicon Power P34A80 and similar were better available. It seems ok in the West/Germany but not central EU because it's again... a different distribution channel, yep they still love to split the EU west and east even after Russians left 30 years ago. Prices differ for these SSDs a lot too between regions due to availability.
Might wait a little with a price watch and then grab one of these M.2 NVMe.
