There really aren’t very many comparable internal SSDs that can reach the kinds of speeds you’ll see on today’s Samsung for less. Although it is worth taking a look at the Western Digital 500GB WD Blue SN550 NVMe Internal SSD at $55 shipped. There’s isn’t a huge price difference here, and it’s not quite as fast, but for folks that prefer WD it is a solid option that will save you slightly more. Rated 4+ stars from over 11,000 Amazon customers.
