This is supposedly the fastest SSD Verbatim has and is the model above Verbatim Vx500 SSD 480GB that is on clearance for $168
It's hard to find other stores that stock this SSD but on Ebay the same model size is selling for over $140 more.
I made a leap of faith as I usually stick with Western Digital or Samsung for storage but it's sequential read and write speed is comparable to the Samsung T7
