Nobody is going to buy to flip at this price.

A better drive (fast and higher endurance) is just $5 more at regular prices and often gets a discount, so I wouldn't say this is a decent price at all.

anyone have this brand end up failing on them? I've had bad luck with ADATA and PNY hard drives after about 7-9 months. Switched to Samsung currently and everything is going good but would like to know about these for another laptop upgrade I'm doing

I wasn't thinking along those lines, it's just been annoying when I need 6 drives for a project and can only get 2 from Newegg, fortunately Amazon or Best Buy usually match the same sales price and I can get them from there instead.

I haven't had an issue with the MX500's I've deployed (knock on wood).

Might just be me, but I look to Samsung as the gold standard. Spend a little more on my gaming rig and spoil it with some Samsung drives.
However I use PNY, Crucial, Kingston, Sandisk, HP, ADATA, & SK hynix (for the first time this year) SSDs for all my projects or retrofitting older PCs for CL. Whatever is on sale. I have not had an SSD fail in the last 5+ years (that I know of) and that makes for roughly 100 units from various retailers and brands. I do tend to buy the well reviewed and higher end models from each brand.
I do lean a little harder towards Crucial tho. Personal experience and bias.
Have not tried Seagate or WD SSDs yet.

I would recommend this model specifically.

The deal is lukewarm, but Crucial drives are known to be very reliable. I've yet to have one fail.

I bought this same drive last year for my mid-2012 MacBook Pro. The difference in performance was night and day. Much faster startup, apps opened faster, and the internet seemed quicker; everything was just snappier after installing this SSD. It came just in time too because everything is videoconferencing now, and my Mac has become a workhorse. So far, I've had zero problems with it. The install was super easy too. At this point I suspect the logic board and other components will fail before the SSD.

Edit: also, it was $80 when I bought it last February or March.

Samsung was the gold standard until SK Hynix started their retail packaging (they have done OEM for most labels for a very long time as one of the largest memory chip manufacturers). So, Samsung fetched a premium.

From a performance, endurance perspective, I don't find the premium for Samsung worth it anymore as long as there is a SK Hynix alternative.

Crucial isn't that far off in endurance and may have a slightly better controller. They all fall in the same ssd tier

Just an fyi, you would have felt the difference in performance even with the crappiest SSD you could find. I remember getting a 60GB OCZ Vertex with 1/5th of the speed of this drive and it made my old laptop feel brand new.

I meant they don't have to worry about flippers depleting stock at this price and supply has likely increased which explains higher limits.

Amazon won't match Newegg after-coupon prices which is why Newegg does this so much.

I don't see too many people trying to flip SSD's (not that I've LOOKED) - I have seen plenty of people on CL/FBM trying to sell their used SSD's for about the prices you can get new for, and of course they never sell.

And if Amazon or BB won't match the sale price, there's often something else within a few dollars of price with no limits if I need more than 2-4.

Then there's times when you run into other weirdness, just today I was working on a system with an m.2 slot, I popped an 860 EVO in there and the system was like, NOPE. Did some research and discovered those systems will ONLY take an NVMe drive, not an m.2 SATA. Fortunately I had one from a previous SD I hadn't deployed yet, so I used that to upgrade it. Never a dull moment. Smilie
