I'm looking for a 1TB SSD to put into my daughter's HP laptop. Would you consider the lower price of this unit (at today's current price on Amazon) to be worth the savings over the more expensive drives, ie: price savings are worth more than the performance hit?

SAM 860 QVO........$107

WD Blue..............$128

Crucial MX500.......$135

SAM 860 EVO........$148

I have no experience with the WD Blue, but I do have an MX500 250GB and two 850 EVO 250GB drives in desktops and I think the MX500 is faster (at least in benches) so I am probably looking at whether the QVO is a good alternative for my daughter's laptop at $28 cheaper than the Crucial. She is taking graphic design, I don't think she'll ever have the file sizes of over 40GB to saturate the SLC write buffer of the QVO so it may be a better deal for her use, she currently has a clunky 5400rpm so any SSD would probably be lightning fast compared to how it is now.
I have come to the conclusion that "FaceBook" should be renamed "FacePalm" :roll:

I would recommend the samsung qvo 1tb based of price. As long as your daughter isn't transferring more than 40gb at any one time then this would be perfectly price to performance SSD.
