That's not an upgrade path for many existing laptops.

or get the SU800 with dram cache + 3D nand for same price...

this drive would need to be $80 to be competitive... especially if it's microcenter-only

The SSD Plus has variable hardware but this is listed as the G26 variant, so it should have the DRAM-less SM2256S with 2D/planar (15nm) TLC from Toshiba (labeled SanDisk). Quite fine as a dedicated games/storage drive in a multi-drive solution, not so great for OS in a one-drive solution. I'd probably suggest the 960GB BX500 instead as it uses the newest 96-layer TLC with an updated controller (SM2258XT).

Thanks for the details. Cancelled the order. Will wait for an EVO.

Sure thing. If you google my name you'll see a link to a buying guide post on Reddit that might help. Good luck!

Not in ways relevant to actual use. Look at the random read write speeds of consumer ssd's, low triple digit, not even close to hitting the ceiling of even sata3. Go look at the performance data while you run windows and load apps, the actual reads and writes are small random read writes which amount to very low speeds on all consumer drives.

Look at the 4k qd:4 and qd:32 on benchmarks like crystaldiskmark. Its always lower than you'd imagine.

That being said these are dramless, I'd recommend spending a little more for a dram model.
