I have one of these as a bootable external. I think I paid $80. Nice small package if you'd want a portable unit.

DP,

At $60, it would've been a deal if you were in the market for a external 2.5" SSD. At normal price, which is closer to $150 or more, not a deal because it's top dollar for a slow SSD when compared to this one from SanDisk:

Or, rolling your own with an NVME stick and a box.

The SD item from Wally's is older, 2.5 SSD & USB 3.1 Gen 1.
As Robert M. noted & linked to the newer model is NVME & USB 3.2 Gen 2

imho, $60 is nearing the top gotta have today price I'd pay for the one @ Wally's.
I belong to the roll your own NVME-USB 3.2 Gen 2 club.

This 1T SSD, though limited to maybe 550Mb/s, is still a good deal at $60, and cheaper at some Wallys, according to the comments.

Well, if one absolutely has no use for a 1T 550M/s drive, then maybe not.

But it's not a spinner, and it's far more compact than any 2.5" SSD one could DIY, and at $60, cheaper that a 3.2/2 NVMe drive and box that would give >10Gb/s, which would be the only reason I'd consider NVMe.

AMZ wants more than double.

To me, the $60 isn't much of a hit to forward-whatever.

I'd grab at least one, if Wallys near me didn't have a No Joy policy for deals like this.

Mail order– I'd RLAF.

Wow, Brickseek says my local Walmart has 6+ of the 1TB at $44.25. But since I don't have a need for these, I'm not about to make the journey to find out!

They're in stock at a few Walmarts around me, but the cheapest price is $93.81.

One place wants $143.37. LOL

Some of the early SSDs were like half that speed.

I have one that I bought from our sponsor that gets around 213 write and 243 read speeds.

I have a 7200 RPM hard drive that actually performs better than this on write speeds due to it's large buffer. In fact the SSD fails when using 16 GB test files.

$138 At my local Walmart. Onshelf Clearance deals didn’t really count. Brickseek is often wrong, too.
