Should be okay for cheaper builds, but after you saturate the drive for a short while you'll see roughly HDD speeds, ie if you're doing very large sequential writes your speeds will drop. For most day to day activities it seems like a fine drive at this price.

So for those who leave headroom and are mostly looking for read speeds, this will work great, right?

Yep! I put a 120GB one of these in an old Macbook Pro recently, and it works great. You should only see drops in speed for big sustained writes. There's nothing wrong with this drive as far as I can tell. Seems pretty middle of the road, and it has a good warranty from HP.

That said, if I were getting a 240GB, I'd personally probably spend another $5 and get a Sandisk Ultra 3D or a WD Blue 3D. They have WD's newest 3D NAND architecture and are compared favorably the Samsung 850 Evo. They were Tom's Hardware's Editors Choice. [tomshardware.com]

Monoprice on ebay has had them at this price for a while... though they have jumped in price in the last 36hrs... but I expect them to fall again.

benefits on ebay for some may be:

No Tax
Ebay Bucks either to gain or spend.
