Crazy, in the first Q 2018 we were paying $65 for 240GB, now it's 480GB. SSD prices dropped really fast back to the old lows and below. DDR4 is like glued to the ceiling and no lawsuit can pull them down.

I think the trend is moving to M2 NVME SSD, that is why these SATAIII are dropping.

I guess the students/faculty discount can't be stacked?

No, newegg only allows one coupon per item.

Way too many one star reviews. Appears to have some quality control issues.
That may be the reason for the low sale price.
While I'd love that price, the risk of early failure looks to be too high to me.

Sold in pairs now since you'll need to be in a mirror to have the reliability of a real SSD...

25% 1star reviews, that means 25% chance to fail in a week or a month. That's just too much of a gamble. I rather pay $5 or $10 more for a better brand with better reliability because the shipping fee to ship the item back to manufacturer for replacement will cost you, and the hassle of waiting and get another lemon and have to pay again to send back. Not worth the $5 or $10 savings compare to other brands. The only way it's worth a gamble is if the price is significantly lower than other brands of the same size, say $50/each.

Maybe I'm just lucky but I've used at least 10 of these in customer builds and I haven't had one fail me yet. I bought them at different times so it wasn't like it was one lucky batch. I wouldn't totally discredit these SSD's. But who know's maybe I'm super lucky.

I have used several of these drives and haven't had any issues.

That's not how the math works.

The people who received a defective item are far more likely to leave a negative review, than people who have a perfectly working item who are too lazy to leave a positive review. Assuming a guestimate of around 30% of people who bother to leave a positive review (might be a high estimate), a guestimate of the failure rate would be closer to around 10%.
