2016 model? Isn’t that like 100 years old in tech years?

Why would you buy such an obsolete version unless your computer's bios wouldn't handle larger?

If being put in a system that only has SATA 1.5Gb or 3Gb, it could make sense to go for an older drive if it has MLC flash chips for higher write endurance, though Sandisk has more than one build for this model so that isn't ***ured.

It's not likely to be a bios issue, don't recall any tech limit at this size but why not buy larger is you're not paying a premium for more *fast* capacity than you need. The average person doesn't need their boot drive to be larger than 128GB, let alone 480GB, then may have a HDD or NAS for additional bulk storage. Less spent on excess SSD capacity means more spent on HDD capacity within the same budget.

A smaller OS boot drive along with another storage volume also means OS par***ion backups are smaller, more manageable. You could par***ion a larger SSD to accomplish this but if the SSD fails then the 2nd par***ion is gone too, should still have the backup on another storage device.
