ADATA SU800 256GB 3D-NAND Solid State Drive

This will sell out quickly.

Not the latest and greatest for 3D NAND – it’s 32 layer, early generation – but that’s still better than 2D Planar for speed and reliability. There is a separate DRAM cache on these, which is a plus too.

It’s still faster than a spinner. It doesn’t matter that isn’t among the fastest; this is selling at a third of the price of the current Samsung 860.

Due to recent production shortages (Japan vs. South Korea and Toshiba factory outage), NAND prices have been on the upswing in the past month. Cheap 120 gb SSD’s without DRAM are going for more than this right now.
