If it’s more storage that you need, you’ve come to the right place. Club386 has been keeping a close eye on SSD bargains in recent months, and we’re encouraged to see high-capacity models offer true incentive to migrate from a basic 512GB or 1TB drive.
At the very top of the scale, it’s worth taking a closer look at the voluminous 8TB Samsung 870 QVO, whose price has tumbled to an all-time-low of £316 in the UK. To give you an idea of how steep the price drop really is, the very same drive fetched over £600 this time last year!
Similar price cuts are applicable in other regions – we’ve seen the 8TB model as low as €330 on the continent or $375 in the US – representing an excellent deal on a cost-per-terabyte basis.
Samsung’s 2.5in SATA 6Gbps drive is a straightforward upgrade for most PCs or laptops and delivers the instant response of solid-state technology alongside sequential read and write speeds of 560MB/s and 530MB/s, respectively. The manufacturer backs the drive with a three-year warranty, and though not strictly a NAS-certified device, sheer capacity is such that it’s hard to resist the temptation.
Two or four of these in a RAID configuration would make for an incredibly fast, spacious and efficient NAS. One for the wish-list, perhaps.
