Greased lighting fast and comes with a 5 year warranty. Enough said.

Supafast... Bought back in 2013 which is why the high price. Since then I've only written 1.1TB lol at this rate it will last even after I die.

Great slightly older SSD. Can find folks selling these used from Lenovo laptops for around $40 on Craigslist.

Samsung is king for SSDs. Have bought 3 so far. Fast and dependable. 6 stars.

from completed build Christmas Build...at last!

My first SSD ever. After moving from a standard HDD to this, you just can't go back. I've had it for about 2 years. No issues, works at advertised speeds, boots up my PC in a few seconds.

Apart from losing it's firmware on me a while back (which necessitated a mailing to Samsung to have it reinstated) it is a great SSD.
