Great drive, OK price. If you don't have a cutting edge PC, this is a great drive, and one of the few with a 5 year warranty, and just a slight performance disadvantage compared to the more expensive Samsung 860 Evo that you're not likely to notice except in extreme situations.

The Samsung does also have a higher TBW (TeraBytes Written) endurance rating at 300TBW vs 180TBW on the Crucial, but most users are very unlikely to hit either in the lifespan of their PC. 180TBW is equivalent to writing ~100GB every day for 5 years. Most desktop users would be lucky to write 10GB a day, which would take 50 years to hit the 180TBW endurance rating. In other words, unless you're doing constant video rendering, you won't ever hit that 180TBW.

There's a FP deal for a Samsung 860 EVO 500Gb for almost the same price.

The Intel 545s of this same capacity has been hitting $50 recently and is on par with this drive. I wouldn't call this a deal in the current SSD landscape (although 6 months ago, this would have been excellent)

It has great crucial support and free crucial dsk copy software which is quite good than the free ones.

Just my two cents but I recently bought both this and the FP Samsung deal and this one was SO much easier to clone and replace. I had to google for like an hour trying to find the correct software to transfer the data with the Samsung. The instructions were nearly non-existent. Crucial was a breeze. I just used these videos and voila.

Their THEORETICAL Rating vs. Field use shows different performance. I've had to replace 2 Samsung TLC drives so far. Crucial drives are just plain reliable.
