The real question is what will the price be and how will they perform in regards to your normal SSD with a higher price tag. Hopefully they will be cheaper and offer the same if not better performance if so I would definitely purchase a couple.

PNY is budget friendly... Lol
Really is too... I have been buying them because they are literally the only brand of SSD that Best Buy carries that is reasonably priced and or it's also carried by stores they price match with.
