The Teamgroup GX1 is the cheapest 1TB SSD in the world

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday behind us, we enter a lull where deals usually become rarer.The race for the most affordable SSD, however, continues unabated, with Teamgroup cementing its status as the cheapest 0.96TB/1TB SSD ever. Until December 9, Newegg is selling the GX1 for $76.99, down from a suggested price of $98.99 and its former lowest of $79.99.It is not a 1TB model like Pioneer’s, Inland Professional or Teamgroup’s other value SSD, the GX2. These three have a more expensive per TB cost at $81.99, surpassing the GX1 by $1.70.Like most drives within this price bracket, this is a SATA3 DRAM-less 2.5-inch internal drive that uses 3D NAND Flash memory with SLC caching and wear-leveling technology and ECC function.
