I suppose I should add this:
** It's on sale if you need it...otherwise, not a great deal.
I am looking to get a 1 TB SSD, what do you think a "good" or decent price would be? Just trying to time my purchase a bit over the next month or so

Depends on the performance level you’re looking for. For a high performance drive, the WD SN750 for ~$175 is a good deal at the moment.
For lower performance, drives like the WD SN550 or even Crucial P1 can be had for $150-160 if its a good sale!

I very rarely find the Crucial P1 to ever be a good deal for what it is, unless you live in Alberta. The Sabrent Rocket Q is $170 and no tax and uses a way better controller.

The SN550 is a nice drive though when it goes on sale but is too expensive right now, with the Sabrent Rocket coming in at $200 with no tax and is a way better drive. For those in Alberta, the SX8200 Pro is only $4 more than the SN550. Both drives are more high end though I do prefer the Sabrent because it's performance is more consistent.

I bought a WD SN750 for $170 on sale and an XPG (ADATA) SX8200 Pro for $180 regular price. Both are performing very well. If you're in a hurry then I'd go with the ADATA, it's a great value even at regular price.

You guys forgot about the Phison S12 equiped NVMe drives, like the Sabrent Rocket or the Silicon Power A80. Those drives are pretty high in my *performance* NVMe segment. They are fast, reasonable price and have great endurance.

It's E12, not S12. The Sabrent Rocket has moved to an E12s configuration, which is almost as good from a performance standpoint though it does get a bit warmer, it does have the perk of being single sided now in the 1TB configuration (previously it was only single sided up to 512GB). The A80 is now using an SM2262EN, same as the Adata, though I haven't seen benches since the switch.

Okay thanks. I wanted to move on the WD SN750 deal but it looks like it is back to $210.

My concern with these drives is more reliability than performance. Are ADATA and Sabrent reliable brands for SSD? I've had a lot of dead ADATA usb sticks and I'm actually not familiar with Sabrent as a brand name

Neither Adata nor Sabrent actually manufacture the drives. The drives are assembled by a third party manufacturer and a sticker gets slapped on. The quality will boil down to the product itself, not the company. Both the SX8200 Pro and Sabrent Rocket use quality parts so I wouldn't be worried about abnormally high failure rates, that's not to say they never fail but they're good products.
