Also, the model CS1311 2.5'' SATA III SSD 120 GB is available directly from the manufacturers website at the same price $39.99 (recent FP deal) but when I am trying to buy it, it is not allowing me to do so:

I don't think you understand how SSD components and manufacturers work, but that's fine since a lot of people don't.

PNY does not own any fabs. Fabs create the NAND storage used in these SSDs. Companies who do own fabs, like Intel, Samsung, Micron/Crucial, Kingston, and Toshiba/Sandisk will always have the most reliable and recommended SSDs because they have first access to their own NAND.

The rest trickles down to third parties at a lower price, like PNY. While this could be a value pick as you're getting NAND manufactured by the big guys for less money, at the same time you're also getting a lower quality product. It's your call. At $40 for a 120GB SSD, make no mistake, this is a very entry-level product just like many of PNY's SSDs are.
I also deploy for businesses and that's even a bigger reason why I only buy name-brand SSDs here at my job. Lots of 850 EVO and Crucial MX100 drives. The firmware that controls the NAND in each SSD is fine-tuned in-house by the larger manufacturers for not only performance, but for better reliability with their own components.

The last thing I want is a Radiologist or MRI technician to be dead in the water because I saved $10 on an SSD that my business would pay an extra $500 for if it means a more reliable system in a healthcare environment. I've learned that while I'll save money on things I'll use and deal with myself, anything that impacts the rest of the business I'll buy the better product if the price difference is marginal.

As my last boss said, "in IT, you need to always deploy hardware that's robust and reliable. the one thing that breaks is what everyone will remember you by."

Bought the 120GB last week @ $39.99. Best performance per dollar at the moment IMO.

Bought the 240GB a few days ago for $60. Even better $/GB ratio with performance way past the price point.

I bought the Amazon, but should have gone to BB as I have a gift card. Never mind, plenty of stuff to buy later on.

Better than any similarly priced Kingston deal, right ??

i.e., Are consumers still suffering from bait-and-switch disease ??

Almost evey time when a low-priced Kingston deal is mentioned, it never ceases to mention this disease - as if there is no vaccination.

Kingston isn't the only one doing the bait and switch --
SiliconPower has been doing it with their newer S60 SSDs, too. They started with higher quality components then swapped them out with no warning. The only way to know for sure is to try and find a recent SSD review to find out what's currently being shipped. It's a little concerning!

I am not an Apple fan but please do not expand your logic into Apple buying lower quality products from Samsung to put into their own products.

I never said anything about Apple, but that is a good point to include. Apple has a $524 Billion market cap and pays companies for essentially VIP access to their higher quality ("cherry picked" as they call it in the biz) components. That includes Nvidia, Hynix and others.

Other companies "in general" don't have the cash to pay off manufacturers for cherry picked parts. PNY of course falls into that category.
