Amazon Prime Day Deals Day 2 – NVMe SSDs, Crucial Memory Upgrades and Switches

22 juin 2021 à 13:40

SSD, Memory and Switch Bargains at Amazon this Prime Day 2021

Amazon Prime Day 2021 moves into Day 2 and more deals have arrived (alongside a little more stock of popular ones yesterday) and if you have been looking for the right time to buy network or storage upgrades on Amazon, then you would be hard pushed to find a better time than now. I have already discussed multiple NAS and Hard Drive deals that were available yesterday, but today I want to focus on the upgrades. The memory (predominantly from Crucial), next-gen M.2 NVMe SSDs (PCIe Gen 4×4 only – nothing older) and even added a few network switches for those who are making the jump from their ISP router and on to a better and more robust network environment in 2021. Take a look below.

Amazon Prime Day Deals – Crucial Memory Upgrades

If you have been looking at upgrading the memory in your NAS system, then you have likely considered Crucial. Some NAS brands are more particular than others about compatibility and support, so be check in advance about your NAS brand’s terms before proceeding with a RAM upgrade. There are 6 core deals right now on Amazon on DDR3 and DDR4 Memory and although some are better than others, they are all quite impressive price drops. Note, if you need guidance on the correct Memory for your needs, use one of the NAScompares Memory Upgrade Guides here.

Amazon Prime Day Deals – PCIe Gen 4×4 NVMe M.2 SSDs

If you are looking for a new high-speed upgrade for your gaming rig, video editing workstation or potential modern console storage, then the following SSD are the ONLY deals this prime day that I have found that are ALL PCIe Gen 4×4 drives (with some peaking at 7,000MB/s). For those looking at M.2 NVMe SSDs this Amazon Prime Day 2021 for your PS5 Storage upgrade, do remember that this feature at the time of writing (June ’21) has not been enabled BUT the following NVMe SSDs are all PCIe Gen 4×4, which is the expected minimum for the Playstation 5 Storage Expansion upgrade slot. The deals below are by far the best I have seen for PCIe Gen 4×4 NVMe that I have seen this year and if you want to grab a bargain now, these below drives are the best that I have seen so far on Amazon. Take a look:

Amazon Prime Day Deals – Network Switches

There comes a point when your existing wired network setup is just too full! Whether you have graduated away from your ISP router, or have been running a switch in your home/office for a while and increased time sent working from home has led to the inevitable conclusion that you need more network connections – upgrading your network switch is always beneficial and an easy upgrade indeed! Amazon Prime Day 2021 has revealed very few switches, both managed and unmanaged, but luckily I was able to spot the following 4 models that range in price, ability, connections and build quality. Take a look and see if any of these are the answer to expanding your network for the better in 2021.

Confirmed QNAP NAS Deals this Prime Day 2021

21 juin 2021 à 09:30

QNAP NAS Bargains and Deals this Prime Day 2021

Yes, it is that time of year again when those of you who have an Amazon Prime subscription have the chance to score some sweet tech deals during their Prime Day 2021 event. Many users will take this opportunity to finally make the jump from their subscription-based cloud serviced and onto something a little bit more robust and secure, with numerous diverse QNAP NAS systems appearing in the annual sale. Of all the brands that I talked about in network-attached storage, few are quite as diverse as QNAP and with a portfolio that covers everything from NAS and DAS, to network switches and routers now, there is plenty of hardware to choose from and a good few pieces were likely to appear in the Amazon Prime Day sale. Below I have detailed a number of recommended QNAP solutions to watch out for during Prime Day 2021 which will be on sale and this post will be regularly updated with new deals as they appear in the orange box below. So what are you waiting for, go ahead and see if there is anything from QNAP worth your data this Prime Day.

QNAP TS-230 NAS Amazon Prime Day Deal #1

One deal that appeared quite early on Amazon Prime day 2021 was the cost-effective but rather capable TS-230 NAS that arrived on the scene a little over a year ago. This rather compact and modern designed NAS server arrives with a quad-core Realtek processor and DDR4 memory. Also, though the processor is an ARM-based chip, it is still quite capable and allows for support of the bulk of QNAP NAS applications in QTS. Likewise, the DDR4 memory that this system arrives with cannot be upgraded but is 2GB in size, which is spectacularly generous for a NAS at this price point (especially when compared to the recently released Asustor Drivestor 2 and Synology DS220j) even without the Prime Day price drop. If you are looking for a RAID enabled NAS system that is good for backing up your photos, streaming your media, sharing your files and creating a multi-tiered backup strategy – the QNAP TS-230 is by far one of the most affordable solutions available from the brand to provide all of this and an absolute bargain this Prime Day 2021.

QNAP TS-230 NAS Drive – Find Deal

Realtek RTD1296 Quad-core 1. 4GHz

Fixed 2GB DDR4 RAM

2 x 3. 5-inch SATA 6Gb/s

1x RJ45 LAN

2x USB

2 Yr Warranty

 

QNAP TS-451D2 NAS Amazon Prime Day Deal #2

This 4-bay NAS solution arrived halfway through 2020 and despite its arguably more modest specification, it does manage to tick a lot of boxes for the modern NAS buyer. Arriving with a dual-core Intel Celeron processor with embedded graphics for transcoding everything from 1080p to 4K, it also arrives with upgradable DDR4 memory and twin gigabit LAN for increasing ethernet connectivity down the line. Alongside this, the system also features KVM support in the form of an available HDMI connection, and USB ports that can be used for external storage, expansions, peripheral devices and network adaptors to increase external bandwidths even further. By far the most affordable RAID 5 enabled NAS from QNAP for the likes of Plex and fully-featured surveillance, the TS-451D2 allows access to the entire range of QNAP applications and services in 2021. Equally, for those looking to experiment with virtualisation, this is by far the most affordable QNAP NAS to allow the VMs in a more modest form, with three separate applications that all allow virtual images to be downloaded directly within just three clicks of an app. It does not try to be the most powerful 4-Bay NAS in QNAP’s portfolio, but it does try to be the best value and if you are still making your first tentative steps into the world of network-attached storage this Amazon Prime Day, the TS-451D2 might well be the NAS for you:

QNAP TS-451D2 NAS Drive – Find Deal

Intel Celeron J4025 dual-core 2.0 GHz (burst up to 2.9 GHz)

Intel HD Graphics 600

4GB SO-DIMM DDR4 RAM (Max 8GB)

4 x 3.5-inch SATA 6Gb/s

2 x Gigabit Ethernet Port (RJ45)

4 x USB 3.2 Gen 1

1 x HDMI 2.0

 

QNAP TS-130 NAS Amazon Prime Day Deal #3 (TBC)

Easily one of the best value QNAP NAS drives I have seen in years, when I heard that the TS-130 was going to be available as a deal this Prime day 2021, I had to let users know as soon as I could. Let’s be honest, one-bay solutions have always been something of an anomaly. Brands rarely invest much R&D in the technology of a 1-Bay solution, as the single SATA storage bay will ultimately be a bottleneck to whatever the system can do. However modern generations of 1 HDD servers have arrived on the scene that thanks to intelligent caching internally and improvements in SATA storage media by Seagate and WD, are able to produce much better internal and external performance and the QNAP TS-130 is a great example of this. Much like the Prime Day deal on the QNAP TS-230 NAS mentioned earlier, the TS-130 is an incredibly good value NAS even without a deal on it and although it’s not exactly going to break the speed limit with the hardware it has, it certainly provides an impressive level of support to home users and is one of the best first NAS choices for tentative buyers I have seen in recent years. The QNAP TS-130 plus and a 4TB hard drive will cost you about the same as 100GB of storage on Google drive for 2 years, with the obvious benefits of being considerably larger incapacity and the fact that you own the storage. Add to that the wide range of software that arrives in QTS with your QNAP TS-130 and what you have is a fantastically good value solution and one that I would say is worth more than a glance on Prime day 2021, but also serious consideration to existing NAS users who want to add a layer to the existing backup strategy.

 

QNAP TS-130 NAS Drive – Find Deal

Realtek RTD1296 Quad-core 1. 4GHz

Fixed 2GB DDR4 RAM

2 x 3. 5-inch SATA 6Gb/s

1x RJ45 LAN

2x USB

Hot Tips when you Buy a NAS this Prime Day 2021

In order for you to get the very best NAS deals this Prime day, here are some hot tips that I have personally used for the last few years to get the very best deals.

Amazon Warehouse Deals are 20% lower

For those that aren’t aware, Amazon has a whole section of their website that is dedicated to pre-owned and opened items. This includes both NAS, hard drives, SSD and more for your storage. During Amazon Prime day 2021, the discount on these broken-seal items will be increased by an additional 20% and for those looking for an insane bargain, this will be irresistible.

Another tip when buying NAS or Hard Drives from Amazon Warehouse is that although (as they are broken seal/used/returned items) they have a shorter warranty from Amazon, you will almost certainly be able to claim the FULL warranty coverage from Synology, QNAP, WD or Seagate. They just want your serial number and a receipt of purchase – this will not state the amazon reduced warranty.

Amazon Warehouse for different countries can be found below:

 

Amazon Warehouse USA

Amazon Warehouse UK

Amazon Warehouse Germany

Latest Deals Update and Notifications

If you want to make sure you see the LATEST Prime day deals for NAS (as new ones are added every hour) then I would recommend checking the official Amazon Prime page regularly. It will also include the very latest Lightning Deals too

US Amazon Amazon Prime Day Page

UK Amazon Amazon Prime Day Page

Amazon Prime for FREE

The prices listed on Amazon for NAS during the Prime Day event are only available to Prime members. If you are not a member, don’t worry, as you can use the 30-Day free trial to sign up for a Prime, or just pay for 1 month of Prime as a student and get it at 50% off. Then after you finish your purchase, you can cancel your subscription. The other bonus of this is that you will qualify for fast, next day delivery for free. I would recommend however that you do not cancel your subscription until you have received your order and tested your item.

As then you will still be able to take advantage of the fast and free return policy extended to Prime members. This is especially useful when buying NAS Hard Drives and you are worried about broken drives!

Improved Delivery on your NAS Prime Day Deal

It is a well-known fact that Amazon Prime membership includes free next day delivery and Amazon has even upped the stakes by stating that they will be providing the fastest-ever Prime Day delivery of just 14 minutes between the cart and the courier, last year we saw and heard numerous examples of delivery issues with Prime day deals, adding 2-3 days on supposed next-day shipping.

If any of your Amazon Prime delivery dates are not the 24 hours turn around that they promise, then definitely complain to Amazon after you receive your goods (not before) as they will almost certainly have a deluge of customer enquiries after Prime day 2021 and  in an effort to conclude the matter, you might get an additional discount, a gift vouchers or more. Currently, the trending ‘gesture of goodwill’ gift is a free month of Prime membership.

21 juin 2021 à 02:00

Many people will be flocking to Amazon this Prime Day 2021 and a decent number of them are doing it so that they can finally upgrade their storage. Of all the components in a modern computer, few are as easy to upgrade and present as larger a benefit immediately as increasing the available hard drive or SSD space by installing a new drive or scaling up the existing RAID. From NAS users and home cinema builders to photo and video editors, lots of people will take advantage of Prime Day 2021 to buy some new hard drive media. Every year at this event we see plenty of hard drives from big brands like Seagate and WD receive impressive price cuts in this limited sale and today I want to highlight the best drives that I recommend for each user type and to help you find the best drives to buy in the Prime Day sale.

Seagate & WD Hard Drives to Watch this Prime Day 2021 – NAS

Network-attached storage is something that over the last 10 years has evolved dramatically from an incredibly niche topic and into something that most home and business users can easily obtain and operate. Thanks to storage techniques like RAID and cloud synchronisation, the appeal of NAS storage as an alternative/parallel service to Google Drive, Dropbox, etc is tremendously popular. Many users when it comes to upgrading the existing NAS storage will look at events like Prime Day 2021 to buy hard drives from Seagate and WD, beef up that RAID and ultimately make the system more futureproof. Below are the NAS hard drives I recommend that you look out for this Prime Day 2021.

Pro Tip – Remember, If you are looking for Hard Drives above 10/12TB, it is better to opt straight for the Pro class drive, as it will give you the best value and the best performance at this capacity, though it will make a little more noise.

Seagate Ironwolf & Ironwolf Pro

Seagate & WD Hard Drives to Watch this Prime Day 2021 – Gamers and Editors

Upgrading the hard drive in your gaming or editing rig this Prime Day is DEFINITELY going to be a popular choice. Hard disk (and SSD) technology has evolved incredibly over the last two decades and now we have hard drives on the market (such as the Seagate EXOS or Western Digital Ultrastar) that are faster than first/second generation SSDs. Add to this with SAS technology, hybrid drives and the soon to be released Seagate Mach.2 Drive technology and there is tremendous scope for performance when upgrading your gaming PC or Video Editing computer. Steering slightly away from the enterprise-grade drives (which are rarely featured in Prime Day and Black Friday promotion events, due to their premium scale nature and current shortages in the HDD market) below I have detailed the best hard drives from Seagate and WD to look for in the Prime Day 2021 sale that is both realistically available right now AND will provide a performance boost in your system.

Pro Tip – Remember, you can always take advantage of RAID and combine multiple drives in a single storage array to considerably improve the performance

Seagate & WD Hard Drives to Watch this Prime Day 2021 – Surveillance

With the popularity of affordable home webcams, IP Cameras and smart security/surveillance tech being available, the ease and attainability of Surveillance/NVR hardware to most home/business users have similarly scaled. Every year at both Prime Day and Black Friday, we see many kinds of home IP Camera (baby monitor, outdoor, desk-based, etc) appear on sale and in order to take real advantage of this, you are going to need some storage media to store those recordings! This is especially true if you are planning on using a QNAP or Synology NAS and their Surveillance Station and QVR Pro NVR respective software. Surveillance hard drives are slightly different to NAS and standard class HDDs, as these are drives that are precisely designed to focus their architecture towards sustained write activity and considerably less read (eg a 95% writing and 5% read/access activity ratio). This is because Surveillance and NVR hard drives like Seagate Skyhawk and WD Purple will be used in systems that have multiple IP cameras in the network environment, often having their recordings being kept for days, weeks or months at a time – but only really being accessed occasionally to check alerts or maintenance. So having a drive that can maintain sustained write to that degree, whilst still maintaining the ability to read simultaneously when needed is VERY important. That is why if you are looking for a hard drive for a surveillance NAS or dedicated NVR this Prime Day 2021, you should look for the Seagate or WD drives below.

Pro Tip – If you are running larger RAID arrays than 8 bays OR are planning on implementing AI-assisted surveillance (i.e. people/thing recognition live), then using the Pro or AI targetted drives is HIGHLY recommended as these support the extra cache and optimized firmware priority sets needed

Seagate & WD Hard Drives to Watch this Prime Day 2021 – Enterprise Media

Enterprise Hard Drive media (i.e hard drives that are designed for use in high-end business archiving and large/hyper-scale rackmount architecture) are rarely featured in the Amazon Prime Day sales and 2021 will likely be a little different. However, the popularity of the Chia cryptocurrency, the shift in available storage right now (as people bulk buy the high endurance media) has led to some eShops and pop up retailers changing their focus and I think you will see SOME select capacities appearing in the Prime Day 2021 sales – just do not expect these prices to be low, as they will likely just be the normal price compared against the current inflated ‘demand’ price hikes. Although there are several popular enterprise HDD media drive types in the market, the Seagate EXOs, WD Gold and Western Digital Ultrastar still massively dominate the market. Some of the smaller capacity enterprise (eg 2TB to 8TB) might appear in the Prime Day sales, but if/when they do, it will be fantastically brief. Take a look at the enterprise hard drives I recommend you watch out for this Prime Day 2021.

Pro Tip – Just because the Biggest 16/18TB drives might not be available/in the sales, does not mean the end of the world! Remember that you can always buy multiple smaller drives and in a RAID environment, you can often massively increase the Read and Write speeds, whilst saving a few £/$ too!

Seagate & WD SSDs to Watch this Prime Day 2021 – NAS SSDs

Of course, even though today I wanted to focus on Hard Drives, it would be foolish not to highlight that many users are going to take advantage of price drops this Prime Day 2021 on SSDs to make the switch from their hard drive storage (on PC/Console/NAS/etc) and onto faster and more responsive solid-state drives. Although the benefits of SSDs inside most systems have been very well documented in the last decade, it is worth highlighting that the benefits of SSD inside a NAS system are less widely known. Seagate Ironwolf and WD Red/Black have been starting to appear in peoples Synology and QNAP NAS systems and this is likely going to increase this Prime Day. Why is that? Well SSD can be used in a NAS in three key ways. Firstly, as the main storage pool, which will dramatically increase the read/write of the RAID array and data access. Second, they can be used in Tiered storage, where the NAS drive will learn what data is most frequently accessed and move it to the SSD portion. Or in caching (the most popular) which keeps copies of the most frequently accessed data on the SSDs and constantly changes this data as needed as your NAS usage changes. NAS SSD caching is very popular and Synology and QNAP have made this as easy as possible, even including M.2 NVMe slots on their latest systems to facilitate this. Both Seagate and WD will feature numerous NVMe and SATA SSDs deals and below I have detailed the ones I recommend you look for this Prime Day 2021.

Pro Tip – Remember that even though an SSD has faster Read/Write performance, higher IOPS and will improve the responsiveness – these improvements arrive with a significant DROP in endurance and if you use NAS SSDs consistently and daily, the NAND inside will likely wear out much faster than if you used NAS hard drives. So if you are a business user, maybe consider NAS SSD for JUST caching or tiered storage, not as your primary NAS media this Prime Day
