Is this a good deal for an SSD?

I guess you could call it a deal but idk about "good". https://pcpartpicker.com/product/JMPfrH/samsung-internal-hard-drive-mz7ke256bw These websites also have the ssd for a very similar price though, so Amazon, Newegg, etc. would be better for their rather small but valuable return period they offer.

Lmao that dosen't rly matter. Also im sure the 850 is 250gb. But thats not the point. Its an ok deal imo but u can get better deals if u wait long enough

For that Particular ssd, it is a good deal, but... There may be better deals to be had. Personally I hold Samsung as the high standard for ssds, so I would always prefer a Samsung over anything else.

But Samsung also has an 850 Evo series that is basically the same exact thing, preforms very well too, and is usually around $20 less than the Pro for similar capacity. I personally would get the Evo 250gb. I have one in my rig. It's fast and reliable for a reasonable price.

Either get an $85 850 EVO or a 960 EVO, the 850 PRO isn't a great value
