Cost, mostly likely. It's still rather expensive for a larger SSD.

True, most likely.

The main problem is that people are unorganized and think they need a lot of storage inside the system. I have 5 laptops with SSDs and the biggest is 120GB, the others are 90GB, 60GB and 30GB (which is actually an eMMC). I add to that USB sticks and microSD cards for daily operation and have never run out of space. For larger storage requirements like images or virtual machines I use external disks/SSDs.

I do a lot of CG work (right now, as a hobby), etc. so I'm always managing my space. I have a 1 TB HDD for my stuff.

My largest SSD is my main Windows drive and my now secondary smaller SSD drive is used to hold games.

Wasn't feeling good about the last drive so returned it and got Intel 730 240GB for 165$ instead. Quite a performance boost. Win 8.1 boots in 5 seconds and shutsdown in just 3 (Yes, THREE) seconds. This is a huge improvement from my previous Seagate HDD.

Wow, the sequential read is way better on the 730... I would've assumed (from model numbers) that the 840 would be better. O.o It's also got very nice 4K speeds by the way, that must be one nice snappy OS drive right there.

I haven't posted my speeds in a while.. Haven't actually even checked them in ages. These are most definitely slower than much of the market, but I can't say anything bad about the M500 just yet.

Something interesting though, not sure how common it is. While running the 4K-64 write tests, the 120 starts off at around 5 or 6MB/s for a while then jumps up to a 90-110 range, averaging at the 60-70 area. The 480, similarly, starts off at around 20 or 30, then sits at a 330-350 range, averaging a 280-290 sort of range. The strangest part though, is that its always a similar sort of min/max/ave process in a test.

Oh, and no access times unfortunately.. I've somehow been caught by the annoying "count not mount device" issue when running that test.

I picked up 2 Intel 730 240 gigs around last Christ Mas on sale $119.00 @.
Test them and they work well. Don't do much with them as yet but they don't rot doing nothing. I will use them on my next build when ever that is.

The reason I choose Intel is because Intel anything has never failed me and they work as advertised.

Super fast today and dead tomorrow doesn't impress me.
It's also handy because I have a local Intel dealer.

The thing I don't like about Intel SSD's is seldom do they have a super sale. You have to really keep watch for them because they will be gone in a heart beat.

That (ignoring different economies and markets and stuff) is only a little bit more than my M500 120. O.o Local dealer was getting rid of the M500s to make space for the M550s.. I did pick up two 120s and a 480 for almost cost price though, so I can't really complain.

That's one thing that scares me as well.. The internet is evil in that sense though, because the only people who really speak out are hardware review guys and people who've had one fail. :/ So the chances of a drive failing is present, but rare.. And most drives have safety mechanisms in place to do "read only" at signs of physical failure.. And..

All I really mean is.... I make regular off-drive backups. (:

That it is
And This model in specific was $25 more than Samsung 850 pro 240gb so if it didn't even pass 840, would have been a huge mistake.

Yes exactly! This is my first SSD so I read up on SSD's quite a bit and researched thoroughly, and Intel SSD's had the least amount of complaints and longest life spans. Thats the only reason I went with Intel otherwise Samsung 850 Pro series is faster (from what I understand from reading so many reviews).
