Yea, I got it for $85.xx, which for a 480 is pretty fantastic. I only wish I had been able to find professional reviews somewhere..

it hasn't actually arrived yet and I actually plan on using it in my next PC build so I won't have any feedback for a little while yet. But the information I've seen thus far is that it should be slightly better than the Eco 2 which in theory was a decent drive it's just that it's exclusive through Newegg, hence the scarcity of reviews

Well, less than $100 for a ~500 GB is a good price presently - anything at or under $0.20 a gig is about as low as you are likely to see, especially in light of the shortage of flash that is being reported in multiple reviews. For the higher quality ones, ie Samsung or Sandisk Extreme, you'll likely have a hard time finding it for less than $0.28-0.30 / gig.
The Crucial MX 300 is a good compromise between the two though for about $0.22/gig
Anywho, yea, it's exciting, and I look forward to m.2 and PCIe coming down in price so I can enjoy the even faster speeds!

What's causing the shortage in NAND?

the transition to from 2D NAND to 3D NAND?

Yea, basically something like that. Here is a brief snippet:
"However, this latest tightness in NAND supply (mainly as a result of 3D NAND delays and a transition to higher capacities in smart phones) should not have to much effect on the system OEM based SSD market, but rather the lower end consumer type devices taking NAND (think thumb drives, eMMC, etc….). NAND going to SSDs for OEM servers, OEM storage systems, hyperscale implementations, and major notebook vendors should be able secure enough for current qualified and/or volume shipping products. There may be some back and forth on pricing, with some vendors being able to raise SSD pricing a bit, but others either staying flat on pricing or tempering the drastic takedowns that have been common over the past couple years.

Regardless, all is right in the world….. there's no need to stock pile SSDs in your garage. The industry will survive and life will go on as we know it."
