    This will be the same price on BF, FYI.

    Pretty sure most major online stores charge sales tax now. I check and yep $10 tax for MD.

    Just checked my zipcode in Texas. Move to a free state! Buy some guns while you're at it. You'll be happier.

    Great to see the prices continue to drop. I'm still hoping for $99 2TB by Christmas. :D

    Well, I went ahead and bought one, since I have found that 512GB SSD's are not really enough, anymore. (Even multiple ones are constraining.) I bought a 1TB about 1.5 years ago for more than this and 2 x 1TB drives back 3 years ago at $199 each which, at the time, was a good deal. Oh, and I still have and use those drives in 2 other computers.

    I can see a $140 or so for BF or CM and a maybe $150 for a 2 tb.
    Either way, pricing is looking better than ever!

    Thanks OP, in for two.

    From what I can see, this is the Black Friday pricing and we will not see a lower price, at least with this model. However, I am pleased to see this price on a good 2TB SSD instead of the bottom end ones.

    I'm still holding out for that $99 price mark. Remember, 1TB ssds broke under $99 only a few months ago, and there's still a whole 45+ days until Christmas. :) With the way storage prices continue to fall, I think there's a shot. (y)

    Yes. Same hardware as the WD Blue 3D: Marvell 88SS1074 controller. Most famously used in the Crucial MX300 but it's still in a lot of drives and is more or less comparable to the SM2258 (Crucial MX500 et al).

    So this should be roughly on par with Crucial and Samsung EVO lines in terms of reliability and speed? I've used Crucial exclusively for SSDs and haven't been disappointed even if they aren't the fastest. But the value of these looks very good. I want to hold out for $150 or so but $180 was getting very close and I might just go for it if I see another sale.

    These Drives Are Fine.

    https://www.storagereview.com/sandisk_ultra_3d_ssd_review
    Realize this review is OLD and the drives have probably received new firmare.
    Also some of the info in the review is erroneous.
    Warranty is 5 Years (not 3 as it states in review)

    Looks like the deal is dead. $199 at B&H though.

    Yes. At the same price I'd probably opt for the MX500 but I consider all of these drives to be in the same relative class/tier.
