I'm booting my OS from a 16GB Transcend flash drive that I bought for about $20. It's an SDHC UHS-I card running at about 50-70MB/sec on USB3. Supposedly these drives wear out, but I've never seen it happen yet. I can take them with me and boot Linux off any machine -- portability. So it must be a hard sell for expensive SSDs.

Heck I could've sworn I saw a 128GB for $55AR last week...

64GB SSDs really end up screwed due to insufficient dies to talk to the controller for proper performance...

Just thought I'd point this out from the 4th paragraph:

The write performance is listed as only 95 GB/s maximum

I wouldn't complain with that. :D

However, I think the value for money for the 128GB is better, especially with write performance factored in. I recently upgraded from a 256GB to a 512GB M4 and the value for money these days is great.
