    That's some competitive pricing I guess.

    That is quite reasonable price to performance - I wonder what the wear level is like.

    $54.99 USD for 250GB
    $77.99 USD for 500GB

    Now, I am interested in seeing 1~2TB models...
    $124 for 1TB model?
    $216 for 2TB model?

    Yeah, this basically.

    I got my 500GB 850 Evo for a good price but in this day and age it fits like... Windows, general apps and maybe 5-6 games.

    I'm fine with a SATA SSD, especially given the price disparity with M.2 drives, but for my next build it'll be a minimum 2TB SSD for sure.

    If you want 2TB, Intel 660p is 229USD and 115$ for 1Tb, faster then this 1800by1800MB/s and 220Kby220K IOPS PCIe x4

    People still worry about that?

    My dads office PC still uses my Late 2009 OCZ Vertex (Indilinx) 120GB, last time i checked it had 88% Health.

    SLC => MLC => TLS => QLC
    That's how technology changed over time to enable larger capacities and how fewer write cycles before fail came to be.

    More durable. Now we have larger capacities and better pricing.
    If you take 128GB drive built on each technology SLC will last much, much longer than QLC.
    But larger capacities compensate for this partially in terms of total number of writes.
