Original Coupon Deal

Not quite as cheap as a couple of weeks back (59.20@Futu) but still an alright price if you are needing a 480GB 2.5" SSD

Comparable to the Crucial BX500 & WD Green SSD's

    Is this just a Samsung rebranded and packaged as Gigabyte?

      No, likely to have Toshiba NAND chips. It's also DRAMless and might be using Phison based SSD controller chip.

    This is a DRAMless SSD. That's why the price is comparable to BX500 (also DRAMless).

    Should I get this or MX500 for use as boot (OS) drive for 3 year old laptop?

      I would get something faster IMO however saying that if you're coming from a 500gb hdd even 7200rpm, then yeah why not?

      I would rather go with a Samsung 860 etc. and screw the cost.

      Depends on your usage pattern and whether you intend to move the SSD to another laptop or PC later on. MX500 has 5 year warranty.
      3 years old laptop so Kaby Lake based processor? Well, it is probably not worth overspending on upgrading a Kaby Lake based system. Intel only started offering more decent CPUs with Coffee Lake / 8th gen CPUs.

      3 year old laptop should already have NVMe port, which 'll be similar priced but faster perf
