Had the 240GB in my cart for the past month. price has normally been around $21.99 since late August, so unless you absolutely need a drive now, you'll probably get more than a $1 savings with Prime day and/or Black Friday around the corner.
The 500gb of this ssd been regularly $30, spend the extra $10 for double the size. Or $60 for 1tb. btw dramless so better for storage than OS drive.
when these things start getting this cheap you can use them like oversized thumb drives with a usb to sata cable for both data and power. dont really need an external enclosure.

Please excuse my ignorance, but what does doing this do in terms of end-user experience?

not sure about their ssd, the worst experience with their usb driver. avoid this bramd if you can your data is more important than the money you save here.

I'm not an expert, but I think that Plex's metadata is huge. Not necessarily by file size. But by the shear number of subfolders and files. Accessing lots of small files is where traditional HDD's struggle the most. By putting the metadata on an SSD with near zero seek time, you greatly improve the performance of Plex. And you may also be improving the life of your potentially massive (and expensive) HDD's.

It is similar to how in the past when SSD's were expensive, a common setup was a small SSD for OS and installed programs. And then have a HDD for storing things like multimedia and large games.

Also, if storage I/O is a bottleneck when transcoding, then you'll gain a lot of performance by allowing Plex to read videos from HDD's while writing temporary data to the SSD.

If all DRAM-less SSD's of the same capacity cost the same, which brand is better to get.

If you're going dram-less, it means price is very important to you. Go with whatever that is the cheapest. Crucial, WD, Hynix, and Samsung are quality brands with at least double the price to match and are not much cheaper than the ones with cache.

Can you direct Plex to write metadata to the ssd? I guess I've never really looked. Ty for the info!
