    Probably 2 years now, not worth it for $20. "may take 45 days to appear in your account" by that point I don't care anymore, good plan for them.

    Hmmm, it’s more than likely the morphine is kicking in, but I swear that says 8TB on 2.5” consumer grade devices.

    I would have grabbed it as a back up drive at that price, as I'm currently out of nvme motherboard slots.

    I snaffled one of them for the new server build. Arrived today, rebate submitted happy days. That fella will do nicely as an additional esxi datastore.

    yeah ive been eyeing off the sabrent 2tb nvmes for a while but i just cant pull the trigger as I know its money i wont get back in the long run of things really like when I purchased two 970 pro 1tb nvme at like 500 bux a pop a while back. PCs you can pour so much money into but do you really need to or is it just an obsession lols or some would say a passion

    Or e-penis competition :cool: I always think about it in terms of changeover cost. I can always sell my old parts for a reasonable amount because they are generally upper end stuff, even if a bit older.....and trade that off with buying new gear at the upper end. Having said that though, if there's virtually no difference with an upgrade then I will hold back.....just no point in the purchase sometimes : )

    Right, you there! Out!, out of the pool. No more overclocking for you son. :p:D

    Seriously though, that's always been the case, why stop now? (he says typing from an ebay Dell 9020 Micro that never gets interfered with)

    As far as the Saberent drives go, don't you have to buy the right one? as they use different nand chips?

    Yeah I think there are different types and performance brackets of the 2tb sabrent drives. I was gonna go the 330 bux one but not sure if that would be a good one to get. It's something I would like but don't really need tbh. I would rather a decent Android TV for my room at night to stream my series x too

    Had one there shit so sold it. Had it like for two weeks. After using the newest shield pro there's no going back to one of those. Been looking at the Sony 43 or 50 inch Android 4k HDR TV's. It's just a banger for my room

    I see, I might have to try the shield pro then -> to add to my collection of Roku, AppleTV 4K 64, Chromecast with Google TV all of which is mirrored in my LG CX77" - I really thought that I was done after that lot.

    The Chromecast with Google TV special has six months of NetFlix Standard level for $140, then if you are a Google One member like me they take off another $14. If anybody wants it let me know, I don't think there is a limit.

    Where should I go shopping for a Shield Pro stalyoni?

    They come up on here from time to time. Just wait one will show up soon enough. The Google TV with Chrome cast really requires a type c hub with power delivery to be useful so you can plug a usb key into or hdd but then you can only use fat 32 so your limited even more. It's almost as quick in terms of getting from one app to the next and operation within the menus as the shield pro but lacks in allot of other features
