  • Hopefully a deal for a Gen 4 nvme will come out soon.

  • What's people's here opinions on what sort of boot drive to get? I have a 1tb samsung 860 qvo but as far as I understand qlc is a budget high capacity storage with reduced longevity/reliability, so I plan to use the 860 qvo as a secondary storage drive.

    For a boot drive, I think random 4k/8k speeds are more important than max sequential speeds? But I haven't dug too deep into which ssd technology offers the best random read/write speeds.

    I'm a but confused about what else is important in a boot drive between 2d/3d nand, slc/mlc, and pcie 3/4.

    Looking for something somewhat future proof without breaking the bank, primarily for gaming, photo/video edits and stitching.

  • Generally.

    TLC=Importnant stuff like boot drive/important documents/video recording

    QLC= anything no important like games, scratch space, editing

  • It's great to see PB tech reacting so quickly. They must be monitoring AMAZON too lol

    • Yeah was quite surprised when I saw their price change. They've lowered the price on a few storage drives (though most have been a similar price in the past); P5 1TB $229, MX500 250GB $59, P2 500GB $89.
