I guess it's good I held off :P but the price of M.2 SSDs is still painful x3

Funnily enough, some M.2 prices have actually dropped over the last few weeks where I live when I was expecting the opposite.

Got a 980 Pro 1TB for £150 and when I last looked the SN850 was £145. For comparison the Series 1TB storage is £200 on Amazon.

Although I wont be surprised if they shoot up now.

Is it true the Samsung 980 pro has issues on PS5? I'm looking at that now on Amazon, the WD Black with heatsink is of stock >.>

Edit: Found the 1 TB WD SSD with a heatsink for 195 USD. Maybe I'll get that.

Don’t know, this is the first I’ve heard of any problems on the PS5. I was waiting for the final release before doing anything with it. I can cancel/return the 980 Pro if it’s no good.

I’m weary of the SN850 if only because the time I tried one it could get about 10C hotter than the 980 Pro using my mobos heatsink, although I’ve ordered an SN850 as a precaution in case the price shoots up.

Hi guys. I read online that PS5 will have a FW update today that allows for M2 SSD install. Anyway, does anyone know if the PS4 side had the Save structure/keys changed? I have a PS5, and do use Save Wizard for PS4 games. Thoughts and help appreciated :)

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
