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 :)
