What do you think will be a LIKELY good deal price point for a 500gb ssd from a decent brand? This way I can compare it to the $55 for the 256 GB HP. Thanks.

A lot of these cheap SSD are great for everyday usage. That's until you transfer huge files around 10gb and up, then they become extremely slow. Sometimes slower than a 7200rpm HDD. Samsung and Crucial, I never had that problem with. I would bet they have poor cache.

It's down to 122 now today! Prime now also has $10 and it was in my local area so I got it for 112 plus tax

That is the reason, most of the super cheap SSD's lack any kind of cache buffer at all.

This is the Pro version, has cache IIRC but I could be wrong.

Samsung is good, but a little expensive
