Hi everyone, this deal is from what I can find a good price for this.
Unsure if it's the best ever,but it'd be close.

Samsung Cashback makes this $144.47

It's also eligible for the Cashback (Shopback), but silly me forgot. So it'd be even cheaper.

    thanks op, bought one, really a good deal!
    around $127 after shopback cash back.

    compared with the 250gb version, it's only 27 bucks more.

      So annoyed that I missed out on the Shopback, I also can't be bothered. I waited far too long for the CB on my 8700k.

      It'd be kind of silly to get the 250GB version at this price.

      With the non-plus Evo the 500GB is a far better drive too, unsure if that's the case here.

      My next stop is finding a good deal on a EK Heatsink for this.

    Any chance these will drop in price more, or is this the cheapest it gets?

    •  

      Hard to say, I feel that with the 10% Shopback this is the cheapest they've been for the Plus model but I'm not certain on that.

      If you're looking at buying one, for even $144 it's a resonable price in my opinion. If you don't need it, just wait.

      I'd think that they will be under $144 sooner rather then later though. I got my 970 Evo 500GB (non plus) for $135 with a Cashback for Black Friday.

    What’s the difference from Evo 860 vs 870 vs 870 plus???

    • +1 vote

      860 EVO is SATA 3 based - caps out around theoretical 600MB/s.

      970EVO/EVO Plus/970PRO is NVME/PCI-E based - Around 3500MBs read / 2300 MBs write

      970Evo plus is a refresh of the 970 EVO. Slightly faster but same write endurance. 970 EVO is phased out

      970Pro is again marginally better than 970 EVO/EVO plus but has double the write endurance.

  •  

    The 970 Evo Plus is actually a fair margin better.

    Yes we're talking just under 2 seconds load time on a game, but it's also ten percent of the load time.

    You should be buying the 970 Evo Plus, unless the original 970 Evo is a lot cheaper.

    The write speed is also greater.

    I wouldn't upgrade from a 970 Evo to the plus, I only got this as I want to dual boot and I will be moving my main windows install to this.

    Keen to see how fast the clone goes lol.

    •  

      who would install games on these anyway?
      most would be using it as a boot drive

      what other os are you dual booting?

      •  

        I have CSGO and GTA V on mine, I don't have any other stuff on local storage as I have a NAS. I Put my less played games on my 850 Evo 500GB. I guess there's no point in having over 300gb free for me.

        Going to run Hackintosh for something different. :) if it doesn't work out I may go with Linux or just RAID this and the current 970 Evo in RAID 0

  •  

    Should these be used as external drives? Or stick with 860 Evo for that?

    •  

      Depends if you're willing to spend more.

      These will be faster and a smaller form factor in a M2 case. It's closer to a big flash drive as opposed to an external hard drive.

      But as you can see these cost more then say an 860 Evo. The enclosure also costs more too typically.
