Also,

Here's a great deal.   I can't vouch for durability, but the price is good.

SanDisk SSDs are kind of slow, compared to Samsung Evo.  I just replaced a SanDisk with a Samsung Evo, and the sustained R/W speeds are easily double that of the SanDisk.

Wouldn't spend money on it, personally.  Spend more to get considerably better.

The SanDisk felt more like a 10k RPM HDD with faster Seek Latencies.

It seems like they have relatively small cache, and once that cache is expended (i.e. during sustained operations), the operation nosedives.  Reviews have tended to confirm this.

I've been using the 480 Gb version of this drive for over a year and it's been rock solid...
not "super fast" but it's worked reliably as my OS drive for over a year!

 I wouldn't want to throw that kind of money on something warranted for 3 years.

Some guy is correct. These drives also don't have a very good garbage collection routine. The performance will continue to drop as the drive gets older.
