    Looking at getting a couple of 2tb ssds for My Asus I7 VR and HP ryzen X360 laptops both currently have 1tb storage ssds with NVme boot and os drives. Looked at the Micron 1100 but OEM virtually no real warranty, but good price 300 and a Mushkin Reactor 2tb 399, only drive seems to be hit and miss for quality. I just had to replace a 240 Sandisk ssd under warranty and they made me jump through a few hoops. only company that where an ssd and a 64gb sd card failed on me..
    Any recommendations for a company or any deals...

    i assume SATA bsed SSD

    In uk ebay can get 2tb mx300, mx500(£325), SanDisk ultra (£285 one off, and and £345) or samsung 860 (£340)

    i agree the micron 1100 (£355) that has no official support or firmware updates

    Curious as to why the Micron 1100 warranty is a problem... the MX500 retails for about $450 and the Micron 1100 can be had for under $300, so 3 1100’s have the same price as 2 MX500’s - if your failure rate is not 100% you’re making money on the 1100’s (also note that should a drive fail in a year or two, a replacement drive will be cheaper by then)

    I just noticed the Micron 1100 2TB endurance is pretty crappy at 400TB whereas the MX500 2TB has almost double that at 700TB; this must be why the 1100 is being dump relatively cheaply.

    Still a good option for many. I don't think I've ever written more than 150TB to a drive, though it's still a work in progress.

    I agree, but it explains the price differential with the MX500
