Currently $195 with free shipping at Rakuten. This price has further room to fall if you're not in a hurry

At 75% utilization the dynamic portion of the SLC cache is depleted, leaving only the 24GB static part (on the 2TB SKU). The 660p does not use direct-to-NAND (only uses folding) so if you were writing that 100GB+ from a GbE network source, for example, you would never exhaust the remaining cache. When exhausted, though, performance will drop heavily, although this is true to some extent for many if not most SSDs - for example, the SU800, commonly budgeted against the 660p these days for capacity.

Some tests showing speed downgrade after store being somewhat full (75%? Forgot the numbers), and HDD transfer speed if 100GB+ data being transferred. So keep that in mind when purchasing.

That's a solid deal. Hopefully these continue to drop. After seven years, finally looking at doing a full system re-haul later this year. Would be really nice to see storage and memory continue to drop.

It's an NVMe SSD. Do you not know what that means? SSDs typically come in three types, 2.5" SATA, SATA M.2 and NVMe M.2.

7 years ago I was completely happy with my 40GB SSD that I got for $90. Wish we could say the same thing about GPUs...
