It's been this price for a while. I've been watching it. They recently had the 500gb on sale for $62.99 but the sale is over. I decided to hold out. I'm hoping the 1TB goes on sale next.

For the life of me, I don't understand why this drive isn't always $99. It's great for what it is, but pretty fast (not 660p or P1 DRAMless QLC crap) 1TB NVMe drives are regularly $120, and occasionally dip as low as $85.
1. 660p/p1 is not crap, they are good laptop nvme drive as the power consumption is lower than conventional TLC drive. With the right price, they are, in fact, pretty excellent for the majority of the consumer.
2. Not every computer has nvme slot. It's a great drive when you try to upgrade old computer that only has sata 3 port. Product like this is not designed to fit everyone's desire. As a consumer, you pick the one that suits you the best.

Will this work in an early 2011 MacBook Pro? It has an HDD SATA 3 in it now

Do I need to add a heat sink to it?

SATA 3 -> USB cable?

Do I need a box / enclosure to put it in?

Finally - would I be better off with a WD Blue or Samsung ??

This is sitting in my PS4 Pro and I love it. Most people said it's not worth getting an SSD and get an SSHD instead. I had an 2TB SSHD before this and I feel like this is better. I didn't find any real benefit of moving up to the SSHD from the standard HD- and I don't really see why or how an SSHD (which speeds up the most frequently used data) would benefit most people in a console, since most games are suspended these days. I guess during start up but my PS4 Pro seemed to start up slower with the SSHD.

I finished Last of Us II and Marvel's Spider-Man and am currently working through Ghost of Tsusima. All the games load faster (obviously) but there's fewer pop-ins in the games and they just... feel smoother, because when you frequently open up menu/map (especially in open world games), it's faster/more seamless.

It will work great! Replacing HDD with SSD in MBP till 2012 was really easy. No adapters or heat sink needed. Just swap the HDD with this

have been shopping for a new SSD and passed on the Team Group $80 1TB for this reason. I bought this drive after researching DRAM cache drives. I have confirmed the MX500 has 1GB of SDRAM Cache for the 1TB model, and 2GB DRAM Cache for the 2TB model.

Should work just fine. You may need a new SATA cable if you notice instability. I had the MX500 512GB version before upgrading to Samsung 860 1TB in my MBP 2012. There's no difference in performance.

Who and where did you originally see that a SSHD would work effectively in a console? Honestly don't think consoles are "smart" enough to optimize something like that so the benefits would probably be marginal at best. The OS has to decide which files are the ones used the most and place them onto the solid state section of the drive. Doubt that was happening.
