[Amazon.ca] WD Blue SN550 NVMe SSD 250GB - Read/Write 2,400/950MB/s Entry Level $59.99

The WD Blue SN550 250GB is the lowest price now on 3C's for $59.99. It is highly rated as an entry level NVMe SSD with a read/write of 2,400/950MB/s. MTBF is 1.7M hours and endurance is 150TB TBW. 5 Year warranty and an RMA'ed in Canada! Model WDS250G2B0C.

More than adequate for most people and productivity use.

Memory Express has the same price right now but expires tomorrow whereas Amazon's price was adjusted today. I can't get to Memory Express without spending $10 of gas so happy to see Amazon has a matching price and free shipping for Prime.

I got the 1 tb version when it was on sale for $149.99 - I was going to return and get the Black WD for $40 more but then I realized meh! it isn't like I'd be able to notice the difference.

These are the speeds I got - I am using an adapter and have it plugged in PCIE x1 3.0 slot.

Don't disagree with that statement. You'll double the write speed from read/write from 2,400/950 MB/s to 2,400/1,750 MB/s, increase the endurance from 150TB to 300TB TBW. But, in the same breath, if you need an entry level SSD, this will do nicely for $59.99.

Different strokes for different folks. If you just need a starter NVMe drive, this is a great price and option. Just don't save any data on it, lest it suddenly give up the ghost since it is impossible to do data recovery on an SSD on a low endurance drive like this.
Why settle for full retail price when you can wait and get it at a lower price for better value (even better if there's a bundled freebies deal)? 😉

modern SSDs dont fail so early. if this has the same controller/nand as the 1gb model it should last at least 4/5 years. also 200gb is pretty easy to backup probably

If you absolutely cannot stretch your budget a few $ and somehow are ok with only 250gb, then this is a good deal. That said, it is a poor price per GB, and most people are better suited going with a minimum 480GB (500GB for the SN550) .

Nothing comes up when googling HP af116ac, I think you have your model number wrong and this question is impossible to answer for sure without knowing what kind of interface your laptop has. That said, similar model numbers show SATA hard drives so chances are you need a 2.5" SATA drive.
