Then likely your feeling is lying to you. Using both NVME vs SATA, there is hardly any perceptible difference in speed. Unless of course if you are transferring big files all the time, then the NVME with higher seq transfer rate will be faster.
so how to make it faster?

You guys think that we are the only one paying premium for retail PC goods?

Look at Taiwan, Hk, Msia, and even in Jap. Their PC stuffs are in fact equally priced or in fact higher than us. This is something you guys need to understand. Operating cost in SG is high. No matter how you wanna sell cheap if there is no demand, business will close shop. PC goods is one of them, there is no way that they will sell with 10% mark up in local stores. This isn't like clothings where it is a necessity items and more people are buying it (less branded clothes that cost x amount of dollars).

If you guys feel that retailers are overcharging, then please by all means buy somewhere else. Its your own money. There are things that are not meant to be bought online, there are things that we as a person need to see and feel it in the retail stores rather than online, things like clothes size, lingerie, certain baby products, expensive watches, higher value items, audio products (buying it without testing it). These are the few reasons that retailers are still surviving.

PC stuffs are generally much smaller target audience. So don't expect prices to be cheap locally. At the end of the day, buy where you feel comfortable the money should go to. There is no need to try to convince others to buy overseas as because it is x amount cheaper.


I think this thread has de-railed. Back to topic.....

I personally think that SSD prices drop is mainly the TLC made SSDs, or rather the smaller capacity ones. Just hoping that TLC SSDs such as Samsung NVME 970 EVO 1tb would drop further for more people to adopt this drive.
faithsilence and Phen8210 like this.

QLC SSDs are coming soon, they may replace HDDs for mass storage, hopefully we can see the price of NVMe TLC SSDs to drop as a result.

no, i don't support local for the sake of it; from time to time, i chose online overseas retailers vs. local shops - simply because the price gap is too huge for me , like many good folks here. As I mentioned, I just bought a vega 56 at a price i don't see being matched anytime locally.

in the past, local distro for any products in general didn't have to face online competition either locally or overseas so unfortunately, consumers were generally "at the mercy" of the distros so I think during this period, they def. had it good; thankfully with the proliferation of e-commerce, consumers like us (and esp. those who do their homework) are now empowered to make more cost-effective purchases - who wouldn't want to stretch their dollar ?

but those steep mark-ups on the surface for local products are not always as immensely profitable as we sometimes think they are. From according margin to physical shops, to rent, logistics, staff, etc all these eats into the pie; SG is a very small market - we do not have the volume to play the numbers game with a razor-thin margin unlike many overseas market

what I do hope is a disruptor in the regional SEA tech scene, who can come up with a biz model that brings price efficiency into the current scene. If there's one layer that's inefficient - it's the physical retailer in general, their value-add is getting less and less relevant in today's landscape for DIY IT hardware
The disruptors supposedly are newegg and amazon but we knew how it turned out

Businesses that are cost inefficient pass down their high cost to consumers. Why should consumers bear the consequence of incompetent businesses?
Continue to charge high prices, let natural selection weed them out.

Honestly pricing can be good if u look at the right drives. There are many ecommerce sites in SG now, compare each of them and find the best value.

Personally just bought crucial mx500 1tb for 200$ from shopee to replace my 500gb hdd in my laptop. Cheaper than amazon, same real world performance as a 970 evo.

Imo its hard to justify the high prices of these drives anyway.
