SSDs in 2.5″ format to be connected via a SATA III port are increasingly affordable, even for models with a large storage capacity. The proof with the CS900 2 TB from the PNY brand which is currently sold at only 129.90 euros at Rue du Commerce.
When SSDs first arrived, many of us opted for a Solid State Drive with small storage capacity alongside a hard drive with larger memory, in order to install Windows on it and enjoy faster execution. Today, we can finally replace our good old HDD without paying a fortune. Indeed, the capacity-price ratio of SSDs has greatly improved, as today with the 2 TB PNY CS900 which reaches 6 cents per GB.
The strengths of the PNY SSD
- 2 TB of storage, or 2,000 GB
- Speed up to 550MB/s
- The manufacturer’s warranty is 3 years
Instead of a crossed out price of 144.90 euros, the PNY CS900 SSD with a capacity of 2 TB is currently available on sale at only 129.90 euros at Rue du Commerce.
A large capacity for your PC
Like most SSDs on the market, the PNY CS900 opts for the classic 2.5-inch format. It is a standard size which allows it to slip inside a PC tower as well as a laptop, with the exception of ultrabooks where it will be necessary to favor the NVMe format. Once connected to power, just plug in a SATA III cable (not included) to use.
During installation, you can then choose to install Windows on it to be your main SSD, or you can also use it as a secondary storage space to install your games, for example. With 2 TB of internal memory, or 2,000 GB, you can install many titles from your Steam library, Epic Games and others, as well as keep many files (images, audio, video, etc.).
The benefits of an SSD
The PNY SSD also offers a high transfer speed, rated at 550MB/s read and up to 530MB/s write, depending on your configuration. To get an idea, it’s 3 to 5 times faster than a traditional hard drive. Your operating system and installed software will run much faster than before, especially video games, which will see their loading times greatly reduced.
In addition, an SSD is a guarantee of longevity for your data. In the absence of mechanical parts, a Solid State Drive as the PNY CS900 model is much more resistant to vibrations than an HDD. It also absorbs shocks better, which is also more reassuring when you have to transport your PC, for example.
