Based on European price comparator Geizhals.eu STRONGLY DISAGREE with your "keep an eye" Intel 760p e WD black are off the market by Samsung 970 evo market leader european price is 250GB 69EUR (78USD) and 500GB 120EUR(135USD), amazon.com prices are very high 250GB 88USD 500GB 148USD,

Intel 760p cost same but SM2242 performe worse expecially in 240/256GB size
Western Digital WDS500G2X0C in Europe cost 145EUR(164USD) on amazon.com 138.46USD

Today my choiches in Europe are :
Samsung EVO 250GB
Adata S11/SX8200 480GB
Samsung EVO 1TB

Price is a key factor for choose right and prices are valid on 2th November 2018

Sorry for my bad English

Don't throw away ANYTHING you receive with a new Crucial SSD. The warranty requires you to return the SSD in its original box with original paperwork and ALL parts.

3. Don’t bother with low-capacity drives.

QFT.
Don't bother with the 120GB drives. The only ones you'll find are off-brand substandard performers.

And you'll be back here in a couple of months, wondering how to manage that rapidly decreasing space.

I wouldn't put the Micron 1100 SSD in the same category as other 'good' brands. Market is flooded with them from unofficial resellers and Micron will not honor the warranty.

Micron is either trying to dump/clear these in mass quietly, or they're just inferior chips.

I disagree... I am a happy user of a microsoft surface i5-6300 with a NVMe 128GB Samsung PM961 and after a couple of years of intensive use outside of home / office / shop I do not need extra space

Controller HBM SSD DRAM-less like Silicon Motion SM2263XT has similar performance to mainstream controllers with DRAM
 
DRAMless is definitely not a deal breaker for SATA III SSDS that are going into systems to upgrade those old 5400RPM and 7200RPM slow spinners. It's time to get on SSD if you have been holding out for years for prices to come down.
