Bought last month for $219.99. Today it's $254.99.

Now it's $299 and sold out currently. Ridiculous!

what is the difference between that and this?

im seeing that for 209, and it looks like almost the same exact drive.

EDIT: oh i see, 3200TBW vs 200TBW? Really??

Im finding it hard to believe that one has 3200TBW and the other 200TBW.
Infact im finding it really hard to believe it really has 3200TBW.

EDIT2: OMG its labeled as a 3200TBW SSD? how is this consumer and not enterprise then?
Comparing it off a Sammy 980PRO which the 2TB has 1200TBW..

The one I linked is a TLC drive (phison E12 with DRAM caching) and the Platinum series at Micro Center are all QLC drives. Huge difference between these drives by all relevant metrics.

Side Note: Upgraded my laptop after like 8-9 years to a HP OMEN 17. Took out the 512GB m.2 my HP OMEN 17 came with and put in two of these drives for 4TB total storage. Glad I got both the laptop and the extra storage before all this foolishness with crypto coins got into full swing.

I am just amazed at the TBW on that drive if its true... 3200TBW is massively overkill for consumer.

I agree, but it is nice to have long warranties.
