Honestly, with this drive being meh at best. The price is still great for GB/$.

Honestly, I have a few of these and are just okay at best. I run them on a few old server comps and some thinkpads.

Yeah, go grab the SU800 for the Dram, go grab the Intel 660p. But I appreciate the price this offers for the general public. It means better drives will hopefully be cheaper soon. 😊

I would consider a lot of other entry-level drives that are better than this. The Sandisk SSD Plus, the Inland Professional, the Adata SU800, Intel 660P(m.2).

But at a price point of 85$? (if you're that penny pinching) Then I would say almost none. Or used reliable old SSD that you can get on ebay.

the biggest factor to the question is having no DRAM in the controller (does this matter? eh maybe) and warranty.

The 3-year warranty offered is a hassle to most and isn't longer than a lot of others.

the DRAM-less drive makes performance drop-offs at heavier loads (ie. transferring or filled compacity). Though a lot of this isn't inferior being new and modern components, they are losing it due to failure rates (nothing we can do about it).

In my opinion, if you are just a casual user (email, netflix, social media, non-gaming college student), then contrary to belief this drive would be fine for an operating system. (But note this drive is "commonly reported for failures").

Like I said, I have a few. And if you are a gamer, content creator, torrent-er, or picture hoarder and is serious about getting a budget drive for OS, I would get the SU800 or something sightly better.

here is a link to a very thought out SSD buying guide(first is flow chart, second is list chart)

Can you help explain on what aspects is this inferior to similar ones from Samsung evo, intel, crucial etc?

For your PS4 or hacked Wii U, there should be no difference between this and a Samsung EVO.

As the guy said. It has no dram which the slightly more expensive su800 has. So less longevity. Also slightly slower write speed. Again that said, if you aren't a power user this will still be better than a spinning HDD but I personally would (and did)go with the upgraded su800. It goes on sale all the time for 1$per GB or less.

good price on the drive but I'll pass on Rakuten for slow shipping. I live in Pittsburgh and I needed a drive at least by the 4 day but It took 8 days to get it. I guess i'm too spoiled by Amazon.

Stupid question: SU650 or SU800 for using in a USB3 external enclosure, which would be used mainly for backups? I know the SU800 would normally be far superior (due to dram caching), but I wonder if the USB3 interface negates most (if not all) benefits.
