Its near the absolute cheapest 1 TB 2.5" SSD there is. So take that into account.

Decay,

It's one of the least expensive models on the market. Other brands like Inland Professional are pretty close in price - within $10.00 or so. Team is a known brand. Not a Samsung, Crucial or OWC but decent enough. 3 year warranty. Pretty much standard. I'd probably get one if I needed a 2.5" SSD for an older computer or to just throw in a box. Hard to beat a $79 SSD in a $10 to $15 dollar USB 3.1 Gen 2 box. It wouldn't match an NVME in a box but it'd be dandy for a slew of tasks where performance and futureproofing is less of a concern.

Car tires, condoms and hard drives. Never buy the cheap ones.

Don't the Team Group models often omit cache RAM?

EDIT: from the Q&A section: " this drive DOES NOT advertise having a DRAM cache, meaning it will suffer horribly under large file transfer load. "
