The 500gb has been cheaper recently, but I do not recall seeing the 250gb as low as this.

Tigerdirect is the same BEFORE the promo codes and they charge shipping...but I guess $15-25 extra basically equates to the same... While Walmart doesn't charge shipping, they will certainly charge tax. Please read before posting

Short of being memory starved, SSDs are the best investment you can make to increase system performance by throwing the OS on it. As long as you have enough SATA ports, you can also keep any existing HDs online, with a simple power splitter, even if you only have a single available bay.

Get the best of both worlds, increased performance without the loss of capacity in the same box.

Haven't bought a hard drive in about 10 years. I'm looking to buy a 500GB SSD once prices come down/good deal.

Do any of you buy them with any sort of supplemental warranty coverage, or do the typical manufacturer warranties suffice?

5 year warranty should be plenty. The pro version comes with a 10 year if you are that concerned (you do pay for it as well as improved components), but samsung is definitely considered a more reliable manufacturer.

Warranties on SSDs tend to be pretty long anyway; the 850 EVO has a 5-year warranty on it, and I wouldn't see a reason to spend extra money on top of that.

I bought a 1TB 840 EVO last year for $400 and didn't get any additional warranty coverage.

Except for the 'old data read-speed' bug fiasco from the last gen EVOs that took months to fix (and several attempts). IIRC even Samsung wasn't offering any other alternative other than "just wait" 'til the problem was fixed on the firmware. You were SOL unless you were lucky to buy from a reputable retailer who didn't have you "take it up with the manufacturer."

Sorry for repeating this but I think the Chase Sapphire $15 thingy should work here as well if you haven't used it yet.

All manufacturers have had their issues, even intel, but samsung, crucial, and intel still remain the safest bet for reliability.
