Beside Prices of DRAM memories that continue to fly downwards, It seems that the price of chips Is becoming increasingly cheaper - allowing not only SATA and veteran drives to break positive cost-benefit ratios, but also modern M.2 drives that support the standard To reach prices that until recently had been considered mere fantasy.

Kindly, Intel's 660p model that was one of the first NVMe to break market prices, continues to drive the trend down now - and now Its 512GB version can be purchased for a final price of $ 68.81, Or 255 shekels only.

Are not you excited about QLC? Western Digital's new SN500 model Who has been widely praised in various reviews across the network for his real-world performance (although theoretical performance only reaches as much as 1,700MBps) drops to a bargain price of 72.38 dollars for 500GB volume - about NIS 265 including home delivery.

A modest drive that manages to surprise you in almost every class - and gets a cut of 12 dollars from its price in a pair of beats in just a few days

is also The Patriot Scorch model is 512GB, Based on the popular E8 controller And uses a vein 3.0 × 2 to provide continuous speeds of up to 1,700MBps and random performance of up to 200,000IOPS - available for 73.12 dollars.

For convenience, the latest Western Digital SN750 Black Drive, which is one of the most advanced home models on the market with continuous transfer speeds of up to 3,100MBps and random performance with small 4KB files up to 220,000IOPS, Decreased below the VAT exemption threshold in volume of 250GB - Cost of 77.32 dollars including home delivery (NIS 285), as a worthy alternative to the popular 970 EVO's .

The WD Black SN750 is available in standard version and version with Handsome-looking - Notice that the version currently offered at a discounted price is the one without the heat sink

updating: The 900GB HP EX500 drive is sold in Newegg At a price of ILS 311.81 including shipping to Israel.

Lexmark NVME NM600 with 480GB, With continuous 2,100MBps speed and random performance up to 188,000IOPS, is offered at NIS 312.81.

    1. The article is up to date with this price - you also forget that there is an extra shipping charge beyond the base price.

  1. got it…

    I suggested it and chose to adopt it,
    Is that it is more prudent to list the original base price of the product in dollars (net net before shipping cost),
    In order for the reader to understand, is it under $ 75 - because it will contain what attracts the initial curiosity.

    Then show the price in shekels All inclusive is final to Israeli - after adding the shipment (VAT - if any) and conversion to the shekel exchange rate.

    Anyway I do this when I present the data to the readers.
    Because in my humble view, conceptual numbers are easy to grasp by this method:
    Dollar = the net price of the product, while shekels represent a final price for us (after conversions and ancillary).

  2. Ever since I saw the following photographer's opinion, I have become very suspicious about the life of the NVMe.
    Why does he last only about two years? Even when it comes to a good and famous manufacturer?
    Isn't it better to settle for a less fast SSD "2.5", which in turn leads to slower wear?

    After all, in the real world, beyond dry technical tests, no one feels any difference in performance and the description of 6 times the SATA interface has become exaggerated (except for file and graphics file editors - only they feel a significant shortcut).

  3. A single case does not mean anything.

    In any case it is important to back up, its approach is misguided as it is of different importance to backup depending on the type of device.

    In most ssd 70 degrees, the drive will start slowing down, usually at a recommended temperature of 40-50 degrees.

    About NVME they are actually warmer and usually there will be more cases that will slow down, about the lifespan… ..

    For the cell itself, it is better to write at a higher temp ...

    Visiting and storing information is preferably as low as possible…

    I do not see how the case of his destruction after two years has to do with temperature, and probably not with the amount of writing.

    On the other hand I have no statistics of NVME drive vs sata, they are also less time in the market.

    1. This is not usually the case, but every NVMe in the market exhibits cattle overheating when working at the end of its performance (the NAND Flash itself does not warm to the same level), which means it fails relatively faster, and probably faster than SSD SATA.

  4. The fact that it is coming faster to slow down throttling does not mean that the drive will fail faster, for that there are protections for the drive, look at the link to the cell itself rather preferably at a better temp. In any case, failure due to a temp, for example, after two years at a regular temp, is unlikely even in an unusual effort.

  5. What's hotter on NVME than SSD (such as the SATA interface) is just the controller itself,

    This is due to higher frequency work (because of the faster data transfer rate) and therefore more electric current. that's it.

    The flash drive controller is a chip - much like a CPU processor physically and architecturally,

    And has no problem working well in the 90-100 dial-centimeter zone without wear and tear.

    Nvme drives are less reliable than sata drives, or at least there is no standard acceptable scientific research to make such a claim after being thoroughly performed.

    The world is moving to nvme (also) in the professional segment of servers, this is an unstoppable process. Already today sata drives are designed

    In practice only for such old systems, which still do not enjoy the modern device.

    But in about half a decade or so, there will be no more SATA drives to buy (even if we want) as the device is moving to the new standard

    Faster. Just as it had been slowly disappearing from the standard IDE market since sata had been replaced.

    1. But in the opinion of some cloud companies, SATA-connected tablets are going to stay with us for decades, because the high-volume products with NAND are not competitive at a price per gigabyte with HDD and the drop in prices is so slow that in 5 years the SSD will only occupy 20% of the market Professional and redundancy will be controlled by mechanical disks. On the contrary, Seagate and WD are planning to launch mechanical disks in larger volumes than the 14 Trebate. Only people who are very sensitive to noise are giving up the installation of SSD with HDD on the same computer case and are willing to pay 450 $ today! ) To 4 terabytes SSD.

  6. Separate the HDD market from the SSD market. These do not swim in the same pool.

    SSD will probably disappear from SATA format once NVMe prices are already aligned and no longer require an "additional price premium" as it was

    until recently. Because there is no point to the customer, at the same price, take a sata drive when it has faster nvme available for the same money.

    God- sata ssd will disappear due to irrelevance where.

    About the HDD niche - it will continue to work for several more good years, but only because the price of a mechanical disk is still cheaper per unit of volume.

    When ssd flash prices line up (or are practically close enough) the mechanical disk will disappear from the market.
