The SN850 looks kind of cool, Intel was just a box, the product here actually looks different.

At least it's an SSD, as opposed to Seagate's Halo branded HDD. In a generation when even consoles are switching to SSDs!

Looks like HDD to me. (The P10 at the very least.) Or a typo. Because at this price I'd take 10 if it was a 2TB SSD at $110, lmfao.

Considering the extreme markup of the rest of the series however ...

thanks for clarifying, I guess I just suck at reading. 2tb for an hdd at 109 bucks is laughable... I got my 8TB for $150... lulz.

Laptop or 2.5in drives are always way more expensive than a 3.5in HD. I bought a 2tb 2.5in for the same price of a 6-8tb 3.5 HD some years ago. I should have gotten the larger one and put into a external drive.
