You can get it cheaper on occasion, but if you need one now, I'd spend the extra $22

I got a Crucial MX100 512GB SSD for $136 after tax from Amazon not long ago (it was like $150 during the Prime Day sale and I found a coupon code online).

Refurbished though? How does one refurbish a SSD? I mean you're already starting with limited writes, granted casual use would still give you years. Wouldn't you guys be weary?

I actually think they are a lot safer bet. Biggest chance of an SSD dying is the first couple months of use.

I have several refurb SSDs, nothing but good experiences. I've had 2 SSDs die out of about 15 I've bought, both of which were purchased new. The refurbs have been going strong.
