The conclusion may have been valid at 6 AM this morning when this story was posted, but now the 850 EVO 250GB is $90 plus $3 shipping, while B&H Photo has it for $90 with free shipping. The best value, based on the charts in this review, is the Sandisk Ultra II for $85, which outperforms the Nytro 141 reviewed here while costing $5 less.

The Nytro drive, being aimed at an enterprise customer, may have been designed with the intention of providing above average reliability, but even if that was the intent, there is no way to know whether they succeeded. With Sandisk and Samsung, the companies have a long and successful track record in the SSD market, and the specific models have been out for some time.

The industry has been teasing some QLC [crap] that would give 100x the storage with 1/100th the endurance. If you had the choice between a 1TiB drive with 1,000 wear levels or a 100TiB drive with 10 wear levels, which would you rather have? They both can handle the same amount of total data written, but one is larger.

"sir the chart goes up to 600 but everything is between 480 and 550 and all the lines are laying on top of each other so you cant differentiate between them."
"not my problem. lots of dead space is good for the soul"

can we get them to where only the relevant portions of a graph show or are we going to continue playing stupid games?

Every good graph starts at the zero axis. If the results are close together on the graph, they are close together in real life.
