I was in the market for a 256GB SSD and looking for a deal on Samsung EVO 850 and Crucial MX300 but found this to be a great price for a BX300 which is an MLC based drive

I ordered from Amazon for $69.99 + tax (and got free same day delivery with Prime, already installed the drive today and it works great!):

Crucial.com also has the same price

A 532 star seller and only 3 available. I'd pay the extra couple of bucks to Amazon and not get any potential warranty hassles.

It may be more than a couple of bucks once you factor in tax but for me it was worth paying the tax to Amazon to get the drive today vs. waiting until December 2 for delivery.

It is also $69.9 with free shipping at crucial.com so there could be some sales tax savings there and no questions about the warranty.

Is MLC better than VNand? I thought it was the other way around?

Thanks for the note. Apparently eBay was "suggesting" another similar product because the original was out of stock. I've updated the post and link to Amazon and Crucial.com.

I'm no expert at SSD manufacturing technology but from what I can tell, MLC and VNAND are not mutually exclusive - MLC and TLC are but you can have a NAND MLC or a VNAND MLC. MLC is generally considered better than TLC because of better durability.

This particular drive uses 3D MLC NAND, i.e. MLC VNAND

Note that there's been a worldwide shortage of NAND flash throughout 2017 - both RAM and SSD prices have been 50%-100% higher than 2016.
