lol. eww. why would anyone get this then? on a laptop maybe, but on a desktop with 2, sometimes space for 4, why wouldn't i run it in raid 1 with 1/4th the cost, and like 12x the speed?

Sadly, this still won't be enough storage for my p- taxes.

Ass-looking SATA cable? Well, I love you too Linus. I sport those exact ones in my computer. A cable is a cable. And my gaming/music-prod/artwork computer isn't even cable managed what so ever. It's a rats nest! But it just works. Yeah, the i5 2500k is starting to show its age but if it ain't broken... (And I rarely drop it unlike *redacted* so it will probably just keep on chugging along for a couple more years) ;)

I'm about 1.5 TB short according to Windows (11.8 vs 13.2TB). That's about as much storage I have as M.2! :D Though, I do do have another 2TB off HDD unplugged, am I allowed to count them? ;)

I downvoted because the crappy size discrepancy explanation. Not the OS is incorrect, but the drives. (All of them.) Binary is the base of IT, and the drive manufacturers chose to use decimal to inflate the capacity of they products.

I find it somewhat humorous that 550MB/s is now considered subpar. Takes me back to the days SSD's were just starting to enter the market and those speeds were absolutely mind blowing. You'd have to connect numerous HDD's into RAID to see those kinds of speeds and even then the SSD would absolutely dominate on seek times. Also, Why do marketing people use 1000 instead of 1024? Is it to appease the technologically illiterate? 1024 just makes sense when working with binary and Base 2.

4000 is a LOT for the storage compared to the usual prices of the smaller drives. You could get 42 of the sandisk ssd plus ones or 36 samsung 860 evo where both are 1tb. so you could do one set of 15 in raid and another set for backup. and still have 12 left if you did the sandisk one. Though the sandisk one does the same as this one for space but i've been using it and it's been pretty good. not like it's too hart to max out sata 3 speed with an ssd anymore.

It is not just "Microsoft" that uses the REAL bytes for storage/indictors. IBM (the dinosaurs in computing and still going strong with mainframes) - still uses 1024 as 1K indicators. Years and years ago the storage were like that, but then the companies got greedy and start "taking away" from us and try to save money - and nobody can do anything about it - I guess we will just have to live with this, right?

Yeah, my 4TB SSD is also inordinately heavy. But didn't you showcase a 100TB SATA drive recently? I guess that thing wasn't consumer oriented though. edit* Maybe I should have waited until the end of the video before I commented.
