Um, this is a pretty great deal; why no love after six hours?

Because this drive is notoriously known to be one of the slowest around.

After SSD's being around so long, better all around performance is expected, not just low prices.

Horrible speed and endurance.

Sustained sequential write speed is around 120MB/s (HDDs could do much betterApplause).

Picky, picky, picky. Just think like LED light bulb buyers: "If it's LED, it MUST be good." (Even if it's really crap.)

Due to the lameness of this particular model, "pretty great deal" is retracted.

Picky because same price or a few bucks more I can get a much faster ssd (MX300, MX500, BX300, WD BLUE 3D, SANDISK ULTRA 3D, etc).

Did you read the full review? They still recommended it despite the cons. This capacity of SSD is actually faster because it doesn't have DRAM. Their summation:

Looking back at our test results, we find the TR200 does perform equivalent to or better than most value-oriented SSDs - at least the ones we chose for out test pool. This is a bit surprising considering the TR200 doesn't have a DRAM cache to speed things along. We like the fact that the TR200 delivers better moderate workload performance than the TRION 150, or TR150, that it is replacing. Also, we noticed that the TR200 doesn't take much of a performance hit when loaded up with data and we like that as well.

We believe the 240GB model will be the best selling of the bunch. It does deliver the best synthetic performance of the series. Synthetic performance represents the bursty type of workloads that are common to the average user relatively well. Evidence of this fact is demonstrated perfectly by our SYSmark 2014 SE testing. The 240GB TR200 was only 13 points away from matching the Western Digital Blue 3D 1TB' overall system performance which is quite a feat. SYSmark also showed proof that when considering a DRAMless SSD less may actually be more. Typically, SSDs that do have a DRAM cache get faster as capacity goes up. With DRAMless SSDs the opposite is what we are seeing. Less capacity is faster. This makes sense because the address table is smaller and easier for the SSD to manage when there is no DRAM to cache it. Overall, and taking into consideration that the TR200 is DRAMless, we are fairly pleased with the product. In general, it delivers better performance than you will get from most planar TLC-based SSDs even with a DRAM cache. For some, the 2-channel DRAMless configuration of the TR200 will have its benefits. Mobile users will benefit from reduced power consumption. In theory, the TR200 should end up being priced lower than the competition, and that will be good for those on a tight budget. User Experience: In terms of user experience the TR200 delivers an average SSD experience which is what we would expect from a value-oriented SSD. Our user experience wasn't anything to write home about, but it is still good enough to earn a TweakTown recommendation.

It wont change the fact that this ssd is not the best choice at the price range lol. I quote that link to show the shortage compared with the same price interval ssds. Shortage is shortage, it doesn't matter how it caused (at least, as a consumer, we only concern how much we pay and how much we gain). Also, it's not rare to see a famous media recommending awful products.

So it went from horrible to not the best. Who ever said this was the best any way. And you missed it again when they said:

Yes, it did. However, BX300 is a value-oriented SSD and has much better performance. If you know the native nand speed of all the ssds, you will agree with me. Media has to tell you the truth, but only part of the truth.

I agree that the previous front-page deal has a better performance (and value for that matter). That's besides the point. On your first post on this deal, you made this drive sound like this was a hard drive to be avoided. With the BX300 offer being expired, this isn't a bad alternative. Who's telling the part truth now?
