    'The 2TB model, however, sells at 241 which is 12 cents per TB'

    Should be per GB i think :).

    Just rewrote the news item, it's TLC not QLC.

    "If you are after cheap NAND storage for some games or your NAS, SLC might be a very attractive option."

    SLC is cheap?

    The BX500 was the cheapest known branded SATA 480 GB drive I could buy for an old laptop. Best decision ever.
    Hopefully these bigger ones end up lowering their price and the next old laptop I have to upgrade, I can put a 1 GB inside.

    With tlc they are more appealing options but with the nvm drives we se lately as HH noted and reviewed recently... I do not see a reason to go for the sata drive as far you have a free nvme slot on your mb

    i see a lot:
    - if you need to put a card in the PCIe slot that is shared with M2... then it is a way to have both SSD and the PCIe card.
    - if you have both M2 complete (like "OS and Tool" on one and "Program" on other) but you need more space then the 4To SSD would be perfect
    - if you have no more PCIe free for another M2 (exemple with some intel and AMD Ryzen and Athlon G or GE) then again SSD in sata would be the better solution.
    - and more...

    On other hand for main disk i agree with you (personaly i wouldn't go back ;) ).
    but SSD in high volume in 2"5 will replace HDD in 1To, 2To, 4To (and even more in future) in a lot of application, it's for that it exist more and more in NAS or Video specialised version.

    In here WD green and Sandisk (normal, not the Ultra) are cheaper, but what would make me look at Micron is the result on long survey compared to Samsung: they are nearly the same.
