Newegg has this 1TB SSD for $87. No rebates. I am not sure how good this brand is, but it is rated pretty highly by reviewers.

the manufacturer's site shows nothing about model MKNSSDRW
Judging by the label this is made exclusively for NewEgg.

Not necessarily a bad thing.

Yes.will improve OS performance but core 2 duo won't be fast enough to consistently expose its weaknesses. System bottleneck will be processor and RAM speeds.

Yep, based on my spreadsheet it's a SM2259XT with 96L Micron TLC. Basically the 960GB Crucial BX500 (the 1/2TB BX500 is QLC but also SM2259XT, while lower-capacity BX500s are the SM2258XT). At this capacity I'd suggest it for a storage or games drive; pretty fast for that.

Yes, as long as the Duo is running Windows 7 or above. There is a function called Trim that is not built into older operating systems. Trim reclaims previously used blocks in the background so they are available when you need them. Without Trim, the blocks get cleared as you need them, and you lose the speed benefit of an SSD, and performance gets worse the longer the drive gets used.

Before I get bashed by the 'Nix crew, I'm sure there is a Unix/Linux function to perform Trim, but I have no idea which versions have it built in, or how to set it up.

FWIW, an SSD is about the least expensive performance boost you can give an older computer. I've used Mushkin memory & SSD's before with no problems. It seems like a good, solid, no-frills brand.
