Looks like a good deal for an SSD with 5 year warranty.

Specs from intel site.

https://www.intel.com/content/www...s-3d2.html

Some of the specs on the the microcenter website looks incorrect. Endurance is 144TBW (vs 72 on microcenter specs) and read speed is 550MBps.

With 5 year warranty and $1 more than their inland drive, this looks like a good deal to speed up an old laptop.

I'll only fully trust Intel and Samsung ssds
Samsung varies model. Evos have been good so far, but I've had the Samsung "ssd plus" screw up on me.

Down for two. For a server with very minimal writes a pair of these in zfs will be more than adequate for the cost.

Nice deal. Taking enclosure recommendations. Would be nice as cold storage for family photos or backups.
Recommendation: don't use SSD for "cold storage". They need power to rewrite and keep everything working from year to year. You probably have a high chance of losing data.

It will fit in some Apple laptops, but not all. In many cases, even thou it fit, it will not work.
It's a standard 2.5" SATA drive and will work in any Apple laptop that supports a 2.5" SATA drive.

For those that needs a small SSD, this is a great price and I believe is probably the best deal for the past few months on 256GB SSD deal. Not sure if it will come again, but I got the 500GB version on November of 2018 for about $55.00.

Thanks for your reply.
Your link is potentially helpful, but I am unable to make use of it.
On the laptop, when I navigate to PC Info, it tells me it's a Toshiba Satellite C55-B.
When I input this information in the link, it gives me a ton of options to specify the exact model.
I am stumped.

ETA: found more info on a sticker underneath the laptop. That helped

Be very careful that you don't store anything important on the 545s drive. I'm in the IT field and purchased about 10 of those about a year and a half ago. 6 out of 10 the died in about a year with no warning whatsoever. Just boot drive not found one day. Ive been steadily replacing them with Samsung Evo drives. Be warned, these like to die without warning.
