Refurbforless sells new PNY CS900 240GB SSD for $63 after coupon code PGIFTS10 (have to use PayPal). Shipping is free but very slow, from CA to east coast takes 7-8 days.

I have also picked up a Ryzen 5 1400 CPU which is $135 now, $121.50 after a coupon.

I also combined it with 10% eBay Bucks they offer ending today (targeted) so it gets to $57 for SSD and $109 for Ryzen 1400 for me, though I have maxed out my $500 limit and wasted some of cash back.

I've used a few SSDs in various PCs now. If you're coming from a HDD it honestly doesn't matter which you get because everything will seem so mind meltingly fast. Just be sure whatever you have has decent reliability reviews.

Oh but for example I do not care if SSD will fail after 7 years or 10 years - no difference for me as it will not be my problem anymore. I don't keep the same PC for more than 2 years. I have used a lot of these CS900 drives and not a single problem - around 20 used over the last 1-2 years.

As one of the people that has purchased the PNY 240gb over the past few months I can say it's a pretty decent drive. Just as fast as any of the other budget brands (Sandisk, ADATA, etc.). The Samsung Evo is a pinch faster in booting I think (maybe a second or two).

When the EVO was $90-100+ on sale, the PNY was a better deal. With the Evo around $80 now, I'd spend the extra $10-15 for the Evo if it was for my personal computer. If it's just an upgrade for a relative who wouldn't know the difference, save the money and the PNY would be fine.

My dad honestly couldn't tell the difference between an SSD and a spinning disk when I upgraded his, which made my jaw drop because the SSD boot and program startup times absolutely smoked the hard disk. But as a regular computer for basic tasks, a 5-6 year old computer with an SSD is pretty much as fast as a brand new one with an SSD.

No comments on the drive? Is it any good? Worth a purchase?

Thanks and repped, just picked up the SSD and will put it in the HP Pavilion Power Gaming Tower (580-023w) I just scored at Walmart for $399.

Whoa, you got it for $399? I just picked one up last night for $499, it was the last one left in my area, first gaming PC I've owned in over 10 years, so excited, how do you like it so far? I definitely need to pick up an SSD for it so this is a tempting deal.

newegg says it's
TLC
Max Sequential Read
Up to 535 MBps

Max Sequential Write
Up to 500 MBps

It's my understanding that TLC is a cheaper flash storage, and 3d NAND is better but usually costs more.

So in my opinion, if you're in a pinch in a short timeframe to upgrade a system to SSD this is a decent deal, but if you don't need it right this minute you can always wait for better deals.

Regular TLC doesn't last as long as 3d TLC or MLC. I wouldn't keep anything vital on the drive, but it should be okay if you just want to update an old laptop or something.

Agree. At these shitty price points, don't settle for regular TLC
