I've used 15-20 of these on assorted laptop upgrades over the last 12-18 months, never an issue!

An (arguably equal) excellent but lower cost alternative to the 860 EVO...!

$57 is truly an excellent price! (And those 560 MB/sec sequential reads claim is quite accurate, I saw 563 MB/sec reads with a four year old i5 laptop afterward!)

Seconding this... I've been using these in various projects (including a home VM cluster) and they have always done very well. The IOPS is what I focus on, and while I can't say it's ALWAYS near 95K/90K, it's close. Solid product.

same here, i installed these on dozens of second hand laptops, prepared for our company, with bitlocker encryption activated.
no loss of performance, they are all still alive. never had to RMA one. solid product, even worth to be used for planes or spaceships.

congratulations to Tom's for highlighting this deal instead of the usual crappy low-cost dramless ssd "deals" we (used to) see here.
