And it put me well on my way to $25 back if spend $200 at Newegg by the end of the year, that Amex is offering.

I wish the 1tb EVO would get to $195! the 500gb isn't worth the trouble of upgrading from my 256gb. not enough increase in space.

I am moving the 256gb to my Mac Mini, and will put the 500gb in my PC.

The prices are so cheap now, I no longer 'baby' my SSDs. I used to make sure the boot drive had a lot more stuff turned off when it comes to temp files, etc.
But, I no longer worry about it.

That said, a drive with more free space will last longer. [there are diminishing returns] (according to this http://www.samsung.com/global/bus...ioning.pdf )

Quote :
An SSD controller is responsible for the massive task of managing all data traffic and storage for the drive. NAND
technology's intrinsic complexities require a lot of extra work behind the scenes. A data write is not as simple as placing
data into an empty memory bank. Each NAND cell has a limited lifespan - it can only endure a specific number of data
reads/writes. An additional layer of complexity is added by the fact that overwriting old data on NAND requires an erase
of the entire NAND block (this same block may contain other data that is still valid). As a result, the controller is constantly
moving data around to ensure that the cells wear evenly and to preemptively prepare "free blocks" to use for future data
writes.
All of this management work requires the SSD to have a kind of "swap space" available to use as temporary storage while
the controller goes about its business. The controller will use any available free space for this, but free space becomes a
premium commodity as we fill our drives with data. OP [Over-Provisioning] is a way to set aside a minimum amount of free space, inaccessible
to the user or the OS, which the SSD controller can utilize as a kind of "work bench."

I thought that offer is for spending $200 in one order. Am I wrong?

It says purchases with an 's' totaling at least $200.

Quote from AMEX :

Enrollment limited. Offer only valid online at newegg.com and flash.newegg.com. Qualifying purchases totaling at least $200 must be made by no later than 12/31/15 to redeem offer. Offer not valid on purchases made at neweggbusiness.com. Offer only available in the US and its outlying territories. Offer subject to Newegg's shipping policies and restrictions. Must add offer to eligible American Express(R) Card and use same Card to redeem.
So, I think it does not have to be at once. For even this order at Newegg was split into two orders.

Item #: N82E16820147373Standard Return Policy

Subtotal $106.82

They chardged $81.80 for the 500gb drive, when they gave the discount for the game on this first order, then they made a second order for the game for $59.99 . So it was two charges, $81.80 and $59.99

Multi purchases worked. I bought the Kangaroo Mobile Desktop Computer KJ2B#001-NA Intel Atom X5-Z8500 (1.44 GHz) 2 GB LPDDR3 32 GB eMMC Windows 10 Home computer for $99.00 and use the one time use 10% off for military vets code which made it $89.10 plus $2.99 shipping. (code is generated each verified person)

I am not worried about SSD duration. My 830 is 3+ years old and still in fantastic shape and performance. I just want a 1tb if I am going to bother cloning and swapping out the drive.

Any modern SSD will be a massive performance improvement over a mechanical drive. Generally speaking, you want to stick with a well supported name brand like Samsung, Crucial, Toshiba (owns OCZ), or Intel. Samsung has really good client software for checking SSD health and various other OS optimization. Stay away from brands that do not at least offer a 3 year warranty.
