Amazon is pricematching LaptopsDirect. Seems a reasonable price in current market.
Not a bad price for 1TB. Still have to be mental, though.
Whats a decent 250Gb Sata type SSD to get? Should I be looking for 3D Nand Technology - it is for 2 old & slow laptops. Sorry this isn't relevant to the bargain..
Why ?

You'll be fine with TLC flash memory for general laptop use. You get a lot of choice around £75 price point - Sandisk, Toshiba, Kingston, Integral, WD.

Plenty of space and speed?
any ssd will be suitable - I have Crucial, Toshiba and Samsung SSD drives and I am more than happy with all. Applications load incredibly fast - around 10 seconds vs 35 with mechanical drives. The Toshiba is the newest one and seems to have the edge but the difference is negligible.

There are tests on reliability of SSD drives but any of them in all probability will more than be good enough for their warranty periods. The big brands seem to have a pre-determined end date - but that will be at least after the warranty runs out. They should last at least 5 years and by that time you would have upgraded and transferred your data to the much larger SSDs for the same price, and of course the new storage technology which will appear then.

Performance is negligible between the basic models of SSDs, the cheaper the better

Because it's a cheap price for a large SSD. You can't find any others at the same size and price. Well worth it if you want to get rid of PC noise. Couldn't stand my mechanical drives whirring.
Am not voting either way as due to the nand shortage this likely is the cheapest price right now but honestly £200 is the biting point for me for an SSD of this capacity and calibre
