For someone that uses macs primarily, what's the best solution to setup these internal ssd's that seem so much cheaper than buying an external one?

OP, thank you for sharing. It's usually better to put the product name in the title of the post.

If you click on Edit (then Go Advanced if you are on mobile), you can edit your post.

A better title you might want to consider:
"Kingston A400 480GB 2.5" SATA SSD $49.99 @ Best Buy"

There was a recent deal for a Sabrent USB to SATA cable for this exact purpose to use SSDs

You can buy an enclosure to make an internal SSD an external for pretty inexpensive

Indeed. It's also important for people to know that this SSD model does not have dram. It's fine for a scratch (ie...whatever storage drive for non important things) but it's not really recommended to be used as your main OS drive for several reasons.

Google can help answer why in detail... There's a reason why it's so cheap... You really get what you pay for here.

However, among the El cheapo ssd's, the Kingston I've found to be better than the adata cheap SSD that goes on sale often too.

I own several of these drives, both the Kingston and adata along with other brands.

Although this SSD does not have dram for someone going from a spinner (regular hard drive) you're still better off with this SSD over a HD. For what it's worth.

best 500G 2.5 inch SATA HDD thus far this year has been intel 545 that is around 55 dollar from newegg.

dramless is not that much of an issues for windows. if you on mac or linux, you need to make sure installing HBM driver to allow HDD to use part of your system ram for data mapping.

Would dramless be a problem on PS3? Is this one dramless?

Hopefully this becomes the standard, $50 for 500GB SSD which is around $0.10/GB

I would stick with external SSDs if you don't mind spending more money. They are MUCH smaller and that portability can be a godsend if you do a lot of traveling. If you use it mostly at home, you can just get a cheap 2.5" SATA to USB 3 adapter.

External ssd's are double the price. I have the Samsung t5 and a Samsung 860 evo in a case.

Sabrent 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 3.0 Tool-Free External Hard Drive Enclosure [Optimized for SSD, Support UASP SATA III] Black (EC-UASP) https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00OJ...UCb0MVTXX8

The external is a bit faster on my mac pro. I'm talking a minute or two to transfer large video files. But the ssd in the case does really well. On a PC the external ssd is much faster. The internal drive was also much easier to partition. The external ssd gave me some trouble partitioning had to do it on a PC with third party app to get more than 2 partitions in exfat.

I would save the money and grab the case with internal ssd if a few seconds/minutes don't mean much to you.
