although the read & write speed are a bit disappointing, as a 2TB I'd say its still great price!

Would you buy an open item that was returned at full price?

Yeah, I would have spent a bit more to get the Western Digital Blue SN550 NVMe M.2 2280 2TB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS200T2B0C for $279 + shipping if it was in stock

No. What is your point?

Other retailers don't charge restocking fees.

Has anyone confirmed that they definitely charge restocking fees?

I couple weeks ago I was going to return something to Newegg, I went through the return process on their website but changed my mind before the final step. It did not say I would have to pay any fees, only that I was responsible for return shipping cost, but maybe it would have applied fees on that final step I can't be certain.

Several retailers won't even take open drives back (Best Buy and Canada Computers come to mind).

Oh it's all computer parts with those two. Still 15% restocking is better than no refunds lol. But yes, that's why Amazon is better lol.

Oh man I want this so bad, but I don't know how to justify getting it. My PC is stuffed with SATA SSDs and I even put one in my PS4. I guess I could be in the market for a laptop :D. Are there any decent laptops I can get in which I can install a SATA SSD? Edit: I know the post is for the m.2 version but I am mainly looking to get the SATA one which seems to be the same price.

This is the 11th time in the last year that this particular drive has been this price or cheaper on Amazon alone. It's a low end SSD anyways. Seems kinda odd to wanna buy a laptop just to pair with an already lukewarm deal.

Oh so that one isn't as good as the WD Blue posted by OP?
