Lowest price for this drive yet --- does not have SDRAM, but I'd take it over the intel QLC drive any day of the week. Probably the best performing non-SDRAM drive out, most certainly for the money. Looks funny because it's only got a single chip on it.

If you're eligible for the WD discount below then it's $59.49 before taxes and free shipping versus $61.00 from Newegg.

Avoid QLC until it's around $60 / TB. It's the absolute bottom tier memory type used in SSDs and you NEVER EVER should buy one to use as a primary SSD. QLC should remain only as data storage until further notice. QLC is cheap and MFGs will push the "SSD" hype train trying to sell it because it's the most profitable type of SSD. (aka, high profit = low utility to consumer)
