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.

Would you rather not have known about price history? Then what is the point of sites like camelcamelcamel?

This is just a statement to make you feel bad, some people get satisfaction from putting other's down.

Getting 2 now! I'll only fully trust Intel and Samsung ssds (or equivalents). This is to replace a 7 year old Intel ssd daily driver (really, for 7 years) that has never had a glitch. For this price, it makes a great temp drive for video editing too. Thanks!

According to User Benchmark, this appears to be a better value than the Crucial BX500 that's around this price.

Nice deal. Taking enclosure recommendations. Would be nice as cold storage for family photos or backups.

the 500G version of this drive was like 50 dollar earlier this year, you could have picked a few then.

How fast is the transfer rate using usb3.0? Faster than the SanDisk extreme where it's 240mb/s?

How does this compare to the Samsung evo SSD? Looking to replace the HDD in my 12' MacBook Pro.

Why? A 256G thumb drive, comes with enclosure for same price as this drive without the enclosure. If for family pics, you do not need SSD speed. Grab a 2TB external for $30 (256Gx8).
