I noticed that Amazon has the ol' M500 (Micron rebrand) for less than some of the newer low end TLC drives. Ordering a new 480GB drive for my brother in law for his sandy bridge laptop.

Are there features I'll be missing not buying a "modern" ssd?

Unless you're hammering for every last ounce of write performance then there are better choices. For normal use or as caching device for drive pools, arrays it's excellent choice.

Anything MLC trounces TLC reliability&longevity-wise. Get M500 and forget about TLC rubbish.
