    Im baffled that they still make 250gb SSDs, with the low prices there is no difference between 250 and 500, [10-15$ is not difference] and then between 500 and 1Tb its another 10$ maximum 20$.
    Also the 2TB limit is annoying and the extremely unproportional fee some manufacturers want for their 4Tb drives, more then TWO 2TB drives.
    Its tome to make 500GB minimum, 1TB [80-90% more expensive], 2TB [70-80% more expensive then 1Tb], 4TB [60-70% more expensive then 2TB]
    500GB = 60$
    1TB = 100$
    2TB = 180$
    4TB = 300$

    I think that those 250GB SSDs are targeting the OEM/system integrators, costs are important, saving a few dollars for each part is is important.

    Youll be surprised but on amazon and especially aliexpress people still buy 120 and 250gb SSDs, most mainstream people have no idea about Real SSD prices, that SSD is no longer premium and that for 5$ more you can double from 128 to 256 and for 5-10 more to 500 and looking at SSD prices on aliexpress selling Chinese no-brand name trash, people have no idea that on amazon or even ebay [or maybe their local computer shop], they can buy for SAME price and sometimes even CHEAPER: WD Blue/Seagate/MX500 [im not even talking about otehr smaller but known brands].
    There is no reason to pay more or same price for Chugachaga brand on ali that uses a Hobo controller [there are SSD controllers made especially for low cost chinese SSDs, they complete trash and 90% of them DRAMless].
    People should be educated about SSDs
