Amazon has the PNY CS900 1TB 3D NAND 2.5" SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) for $82.99 with free shipping.

Note: In stock on October 7, 2020.

Model SSD7CS900-1TB-RB

Specs:
- Capacity: 1 TB
- Interface: SATA III 6Gb/s
- Form Factor: 2.5" Internal SSD
- Max Sequential Read Speed: 535 MB/s
- Max Sequential Write Speed: 515 MB/s

You can read the full spec sheet here [ssl-images-amazon.com].

Unfortunately, CCC doesn't have a record of this particular drive alone, only the other sizes. And recent SD deals had this posted at $88, so a $5 drop looks like a good deal to me.

Don't mean to DC (take it or leave it), but as a data recovery professional, these drives have a nasty proclivity for failing instantly and reporting their model as SATAFIRM with no sector access (thus all data permanently lost). Recommended for use as a backup or noncritical data only if you ask me!
I very much like the WD Blue drives for the price actually. They're less expensive than the Samsung drives but they are SanDisk NAND flash (still very good quality) and they seem to have a good reliability track record thus far versus similarly priced drives. I have installed a few hundred to date for my clients with zero problems anecdotally thus far.

In contrast, I have seen four or five PNY CS900 drives fail with exactly the same symptoms, never recoverable. Three drives actually failed within a two month period; they were purchased mere months apart.
Great price. No DRAM.

Not necessarily. Some people would consider a great price to be a good thing. Big Grin

No DRAM means poorer performance (particularly with random writes) and a generally shorter SSD lifespan. They are often not recommended for OS drives, but are generally fine for other things.

Some people will not touch DRAM-less SSDs at all, noting that being ~20% cheaper does not offset getting 60-70% of the lifespan and 60-70% of the performance of a DRAM SSD. Others note that DRAM-less SSDs are still much faster than traditional HDs and work fine for most people.

I feel like it should be noted in titles for deals on SSDs if they have DRAM or not, since it seems to be a very popular question

What does "DC" mean? And do you have any experience with premature Samsung 860 QVO 1TB drive failures? I ask as they're the cheapest 1TB drive Samsung alternative. Thanks!

Doubting Cow?

I've not heard of premature failures for any Samsung SSD, regardless of model. The QVO is supposed to be short for "quality-value optimized" so it's meant to be a midpoint between a professional drive with great reliability and an enthusiast drive with better speed.

I believe Samsung, Sandisk/Western Digital, and Crucial/Micron are the only drive makers who manufacture their own NAND for their SSDs, so pretty much any of those brands are going to command a higher price, but their reliability and warranty is going to be much better than ones like PNY, Team, Inland, etc.
