What a strange way of posting it as 1.024 TB. They really
should just stick to saying 1TB since it's not always the case depending on OS/Filesystem it's installed on.

Ok price if you need an SSD right now.
Crucial MX500 1TB is a better deal than this through Amazon and it was under $150 during Prime Day sale, got mine for $105 after tax and coupon, paid with AMEX card (20% discount for cardholders)

170 Plus tax. Be better off buying a Samsung 1tb for a little more. Those go for $200 quite often
Is Samsung EVO version better than Sandusky ultra? Which one is better?

Drive manufacturers make *unformatted* drives. All drive manufacturer's capacities are unformatted capacities, for exactly that reason.

Furthermore, to drive manufacturers, 1 TB is 1,000 GB, not 1024. Since this is 1024 GB, the stated capacity is correct, and no doubt that was stated to make this drive seem better than "1TB" models. Whether it's really "better" or not is debatable, of course.

Amazon has Crucial MX500 1tb SSD for $177. Better deal than this in my opinion.

I more believe it's a new model number made up by BestBuy so you can't use it to pricematch in other stores.

All other stores sell SDSSDH3-1T00-G25 (BestBuy also has it) but this one is SDSSDH3-1T02-G25 which you can't find it on sandisk website.

Mediocre price. Sorry, someone had to say it.
It's not.

I could be wrong but the last time I saw this SSD was a couple of years ago for $165 at BHPhoto

Yes, there are better deals out now but you post as if there have SSD deals like the frequently all year. There just hasn't and you know that. Some people don't have the time to wait 2 months for an SSD to get $10 cheaper for something that they will be consistently using for 4+ years.

So, a good deal is a good deal

Well aware of that. I'm curious about how they listed it as 1.024TB. Albeit correct, no one else sells drives written that way. It's always 1TB. This is a first. They could even have gone with 1,000 GB but 1.024TB? come on.

Bhphoto has probably the same (SDSSDH3-1T00-G25) 1TB at $180. If you don't live in NY, it's better price.

Due to the recent supreme court ruling, it's going to be much more difficult to find no sales tax deals. Newegg started charging sales tax for purchases in my state within days of that ruling. Better learn to live with it.

Regardless of sales tax... I was pointing out a more qualified product can be purchased for nearly the same price.
Don't read between the lines.
