Are there any "catches" with this SSD?

    I don't know too much about prices, but I thought a 960GB SSD would be really expensive.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820211984

    But you have to change selection to 960gb

    Is there any catches? Like is it slow or something? And can it fit into an MSI 970a-g46 if I remove my current HDD?

    Newegg is trolling me. Just google search this:
    ADATA Premier SP550 2.5" 240GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ASP550SS3-240GM-C

    And change selection to 960gb

    No catches the larger the SSD is the faster it is Usually

    DONT GET TLC it is the worst flash type its what generic flashdrives used and the reason why SSDs were originally drying in under a year

    you want MLC which is the standard for most SSDs in the last couple of years

    MLC will give you better performance and Life

    Also all SSDs are the size of laptop HDs so it will fit

    So the catch would be that this ADATA is a TLC and the one you don't want?

    @squee666 I started randomly looking at SSDs on Newegg because of this thread, and I was wondering if I could assume that the SSD is TLC unless otherwise mentioned. Is this a good rationale to have when shopping?

    If you're looking at $220 for it, you might as well spend the extra $10 for the Mushkin Reactor 1TB. There's even a $10 discount coupon which brings it down to the same price, and I'm pretty sure you'll get better performance.
