Slightly lower than the going rate per/GB. Not sure about the quality, though I see these in builds all the time, and they're still runnung, so they can't be *that* bad.

3-year warranty & 30 day return. 4-star rating @ amz.
You can spend $10-20 more for a WD or SanDisk (same co.) you'll get same
specs and same warranty. If I needed some 1TB SSDs I wouldn't hesitate to buy this.
Never had an issue with returns @ MC either.
"High failure rate...", couldn't find any veritable source for that allegation.

If only it was free shipping, otherwise $96 for a 1tb isn't too too great based on recent pricing for more reputable drives

High failure rate. Please do your own due diligence. Just a friendly heads up. Avoid like a plague. For just a little more you can get something much better.
Due diligence reveals a 4.7 out of 5 star rating with 42 reviews at Micro Center, and 4 reviews on Amazon (3 are 5 star, 1 is 4 star).

It's DRAMless, so will suffer if you pound it with sustained writes on the >2 GB scale that overwhelm the SLC cache. Almost no home user ever does that unless they're cloning over another drive... which they will generally do exactly once.

Will also likely suffer when near full. Which makes this have useful capacity of, and I'm guessing here, say 800 GB? That adds ~25% to the effective cost per usable GB. So I'd put it at a similar effective price per GB as the more expensive mainstream drives (Samsung 860 Evo, MX500, WD Blue), which are usable up closer to their full 1TB capacity.

That said, it's probably a perfectly good drive and better than an HDD. (HDDs also slow down for reading and writing near capacity due to sector location near the center of the spinning platter.)

No, I would say mostly plastic with some copper, tin, silicon...

They're basically rebranded Western digitals. It's their in-house brand. I have a store that's about 15 minutes away so totally worth it. Retail Me Not has a $5 off $30 in-store coupon too

We're getting into "SSD's are SSD's" at this point. Once it became easy to max out the SATA spec with any controller and controllers are mature enough to not be shit (remember OCZ lol) SSDs are kind of just commodity items now. Buy whatever you like!

NVME is still in the honeymoon where everything matters like SSDs once were

Sorry if this was answered already, I have a older system with 128gb ssd that I want to upgrade.
If I Google, it shows so many links for ssd upgrade but not sure if they actually work.
Can someone point to an information source that they know works?
As far as I know, my laptop can have only one drive at a time and prefer not to start fresh OS install on the new drive. I read about disc cloning, but I couldn't find a step by step process including what sw is needed, etc. I have windows 10 laptop with i7 7th processor with no CD drive.
Thanks for any help.

I like this kit, which includes cloning software and lets you retain the old drive to use as an external:

FYI - I'd recommend doing a clean install of Windows 10 on the new drive. It's the perfect time to do it when you;re upgrading the hard drive.
