Good price. Just be aware this is SATA speeds, which roughly bottlenecks a little over 500 MB/s (as opposed to the two or threefold speeds offered by ones over a PCI express bus). Still plenty better than a mechanical drive, and it's 3D NAND storage. Some mid range and pretty much all high end desktop motherboards made in the last 2 years have ones that can handle the faster variety.

And then when NVMe drives come down in price you can just add one to your setup. Oh wait, you filled your M.2 slot with a sata card. Seems like a bad idea to me.I would just get a regular ssd and leave the M.2 slot empty for when I get a NVMe drive.

The TYPE of drive should always be in the header. SATA, PCIe, etc.

With Amex $30 off $100 coupon, I got two WDs for $92 from Amazon, so $46 each with tax included. it beats your price.
What amex coupon is this!?

Do these have the same cache issues for sustained writes as dram-less sata ssd's?

What 30 off 100 Amex is it for Amazon or newegg? When does it expire.
