This is NOT meant to be used in a daily use or gaming computer. You will see zero benefits over a Samsung 850 EVO or Pro. This is meant for production workstations that run read and write intensive workloads or for enthusiasts running all sorts of crazy benchmarks.
EDIT: and of course there are idiots who TD because they don't know what it is they are looking at.
i'll throw the uninformed guys here a bone. in order to get similar read and write performance, and there are people who actually do need it, you would need to strap 4 high end SATA SSDs to a RAID controller and put them into RAID 0. but doing so still limits you to using the archaic AHCI which was designed for MECHANICAL hard drives and will limit the IOPS performance which is important when you work with databases and such. in the end, buying this will actually save you money AND headaches IF you need this kind of performance. if you feel that a $100 SSD will work for you just as well as this will, then this item, and by extension this deal, is clearly not for you and you need not cry about the price to other people.
