Tell me why I shouldn't have just bought this ssd.
But you should! I currently have three at home (120, 250, 500GB) and one in my work laptop (actually the second laptop I use it in) and I have had a total of 0 (zero) issues with it. They're also very, very fast as in SATA saturating fast.

Good choice user.

Is there anything wrong with PNY SSDs?

The oldest one I have is 5- 6 years old and it works as good as the first day I bought it, even after I fished it out of my old computer which was stored in a non climate control garage.

With that money you could have spent it on a quality escort

250GB isn't a whole lot and the 860 Evo is already out. If your use case can benefit from NVMe, you might also want to take a look at the 960 Evo.
With all that said, a 250GB 850 Evo is still a great SSD.

Man I love the consumer electronics forum on this newfangled four channel that so hip with those kids. Posting about my purchasing habits was definitely the intended use of this board and definitely not actual technology discussion.

Literally nothing if you are still using SATA 3.

MX500 is (usually) cheaper and faster.

Are you running database loads on your system? That's about the only thing your pictured SSD is bad at.

Adam Thomas

Everyone running DB stuff will probably opt for anything 3DXpoint-based, since it's waaaaaaaay faster than anything NAND for that.

The 860 is more durable.

Who cares, the client workloads will never do enough writing before the warranty ends.

There's no reason really, apart from the 860 EVO. I got the 1TB version 3 years ago on Amazon Prime Day for roughly £210. Best decision of my life.

Mason Lewis

because any cheaper ssd works as well.

Crosspoint is useful for like 3.5 workloads and none of them are client.

Logan Rodriguez

Question of price for capacity. I've seen a bunch of DBs using RAID 5 or 10 on SSDs, just to get it large enough for the datasets. 5 if they're starved for space, 10 otherwise.

Charles Miller

Crosspoint is just waaaay to tasty for DB stuff (that steady-state perf oh god).
Intel needs to get higher capacities going.

I just bought the 850 Pro for 90€.

The 10 year warranty tells me that it is a good SSD with lower failure percentage compared to other SSDs.

If you're asking it probably means your low on money.
You probably should have saved the money instead.

OR purchased some bonds.

Justin Campbell

That's correct, 100$ is a good enough price for a quality escort (female)
