    I bought one because I don't think it's going any farther down in price.

    If it is not your primary drive maybe you should get a 2.5 hard drive instead since it will be will be cheaper. Unless you just want that fast access for your "movies" ...

    I would get an external hd instead as mentioned, I've seen 5th hd going for 90 bucks. If you only need a little more, 256gb flash drives can be gotten for 30 bucks.

    I would waste money on a 2.5 inch ssd when nvme or m.2 is the way forward.


    Not to mention I've seen 1tb ssd going cheaper

    For example, 1tb nvme for 83 bucks: (if your pc can accept nvme)

    https://www.newegg.com/intel-660p-series-1tb/p/N82E16820167462?Item=N82E16820167462

    If you really need a 2.5 inch form factor and dont care if its slower ssd. 87 bucks;

    It's mainly just due to ease of installation + speed + reliability. I mean,2tb 7200 rpm HDD for $50 sounds nice, but for $50-60 more I can have a far superior product with its only drawback being storage space.

    Oh...but who’d pay to buy @lychee ? :p

    She’ll make a poll about the perfect buyer, things to look for related to consumer satisfaction, etc. :ROFLMAO:
