One terabyte. Yes, you can get solid-state drives packing 1000GB now. The only problem is keeping both your kidneys while still affording one. Fortunately, Amazon US is here to save the day (and your organs): you can grab a 1TB Silicon Power drive with 3D NAND for a sweet $252 delivered.

You don’t need a coupon or anything — that’s just the price Amazon has it for. Well, to break it down, the SSD is $US185.49, or $245.74 Australian, with shipping adding $US5.35 / $7.09, bringing the total to $252.83.

As you’d expect for a modern SSD, it’s a 2.5-inch form factor with SATA 6Gb/s support. There’s also a three-year warranty, though you’ll probably have to send it back to the US if a problem does occur.

That said, Amazon is pretty good about returns, so I wouldn’t worry about this too much.

  • Just a heads up, this SSD is a mid range performer along the lines of a Crucial MX300 or similar. It’s not meant to compete with the Samsungs or even the Crucial MX500 speed wise.

    That said, the price performance is great and for the majority of users you won’t notice that it’s slower than a much more expensive Samsung drive.
