SSD Recommendation?

Need a fast SSD that isn't too expensive that's around 500 GB. If you have a good recommendation I would appreciate it. Thanks!

I mean from where I sit as a long time SSD users, pretty much any 500GB drive is cheap in 2019. Couple of years ago I bought a few 500GB drives and they were $200-250 each.

I second both of these recommendations.

Remember when 120GB drives were well over $100, and 60GB drives were a thing? SSDs have come a long way.

Yeah I've noticed they are significantly cheaper as well. Thanks

This one has been getting some good reviews lately. It is one of the few in this price range that has a cache memory.
