    I hope they hit $50 soon!

    This is a sata 3 drive with TLC.

    How is reliability on these?

    If you need sata. I paid $12 more for the NVME 3x4 version plus tax a few months ago. I’d pay extra for the nvme, but that’s just me.

    I've had this SSD in my laptop for over 6 months so far with no issues. Inland is MC's in house brand so I think the reliability will be good.

    I'd say it's pretty good:

    189 out of 194 (97%) reviewers recommend this product.

    Unfortunately, some of use have Gen 3 or older Intel boards and do not have M.2 nor can boot off NVME using a PCIe adapter. I used a SATA SSD to boot and an adapter for data for use in Windows. Worked out till I upgraded.

    They sell them at Fry's too. I always thought it was a Fry's store brand. Seems neither of us are right.

    I don't think inland is even MC brand. It might of been the first store to sell their product. Inland products are sold in a bunch of different places now. MC probably just had a exclusive deal with them for the first year or two.

    Hell yeah, I remember when 1tb SSD's were like ... a dream to own. $400 dollars ... I was like fuk all that lol. Back in 2014 I remember spending $250 for a 240gb SSD and that was a killer deal even back then haha.

    As soon as these hit $50 ... I'm going to just buy them to lay around the house and shit, put in my pockets with my change ... my girlfriend will be like, "What TF is that in your pocket?" ........ "Oh this? A 1tb SSD that only cost me $50 ... yeah, I keep a few mixed in with my change now for the hell of it."

    I bought the crucial p1 nvme with ryzen 3600. It was $20 off. So 80 bucks, not bad at all for 1tb nvme drive for second system.

    I did a similar thing with IDE hard drives a long time ago when places like Circuit City would put them on sale with a rebate that made them cheap compared to normal pricing. I thought I'd use them, but then SATA came along and well, you know what happened next. What a waste of money. I was stupid, looking back on it. Lesson learned. Buy what you need now. It just gets cheaper later or the connector will change on you. :LOL:

    The MC branded drives are "OK", priced decent and OK performers. But even though my sample size is small (5) I've already had one failure, which gives it a 20% fail rate in my numbers. I have also purchased 5 Corsairs (no fails) and 4 Samsung (no fails).

    BUT the price is hard to beat and I'll still buy them, I just put one (500gb) in my gaming laptop just for game installs.

    TBF I don't think I'll ever buy another Corsair SSD but not that long ago, they were the Shiz.

    That’s super cheap. I’ll have to go pick one up for my ps4 pro.

    Thinking of doing the same for XB1X but may just wait until 2TBs become cheap. I think it's a lot more involved on XB1X...
    Or maybe just this

    I had one of those in my PS4. I didn't really notice a big difference personally. I'd probably go SSD if I could afford it.
