Samsung 860 EVO 1TB 2.5" SATA $193 Delivered ($159 after Cashback) at Centrecom


Samsung EVO 1TB from Centrecom for $193 including shipping, $159 after cashback. Was debating whether to pick up a Crucial MX500 from Amazon but with cashback this looks like a better deal.

Not the cheapest it has been but I think it's still a great price.

  • Damn. I bought it for $209 just a few days ago. Got delivered today.

  • Worth getting over the 970 plus?? Can anyone see the performance difference between the two?

    • No one can unless you're doing massive file transfers.

    • Do you handle any sort of video editing or large data manipulation?

      If yes then it might help you in your large data workloads be it a large amount of size or quantity it will definitely help you but if it is just for gaming or transferring single large files like most normal tasks the difference in price means to just stick with the 860 EVO over the 970 EVO Plus because the extra $100 you spend for the "faster" 970 EVO Plus is negligible like less than 5 to 10 seconds for most common stuff.

      Really you would only use it for large data centers or maybe in research environments where they process petabytes of information and those seconds add up to hours.

      But if you have to ask then just get the 860 EVO you will be very satisfied with its performance honestly even if you had a 970 EVO Plus just sell it and buy more 860 EVO's haha lol.

      You would only get one if an extra 1-2 seconds off loading times max in most if not all games and the question is is that worth paying an extra $50-100 to you?

      Some people buy sports cars even though they will never see a race track or drive it on the autobahn but the premium feel is nice.

      Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD - $240 - $270
      Samsung 860 EVO 1TB 2.5" SATA SSD - $140 - $175

      If you want to see a good real world benchmark check this video out.


      M.2 SSD NVME Samsung 970 Evo VS SATA 860 Evo VS WD Standard HD Real World Benchmark

      Skip to 13:20 for his notepad results.

      But basically the 970 Evo Plus transferred a 19.5 GB folder with 11,622 items in 128 seconds or 2 minutes and 8 seconds.

      The 860 Evo transferred the same 19.5 GB folder with 11,622 items in less time at 123 seconds or 2 minutes 3 seconds.

      The Western Digital mechanical hard drive aka old spinning disk platter style technology did not even finish he stopped it at 210 seconds or 3 minutes 30 seconds to get to roughly 41% of the 19.5 GB 11,622 folder transferred so it would have taken over 7 minutes probably 8 minutes total to completely finish.

      So if you want good performance and good price 860 Evo is the one to get pretty much every time unless you want to save money and get mechanical hard drives which are still the cheapest at $30-35/TB compared to the cheapest SSD's at around about $120-133/TB which is the Crucial BX500 1TB but yeah if you getting a SSD the Samsung 850/860 Evo line is the best to get overall at $145-175/TB unless you really want to save like $20-60.

      Hope this helps.

      EDIT: pretty interesting video that shows a bit more data but for different models


  • Is the $145 still available?

  • I just bought the Samsung 860 QVO 1TB 2.5" SATA SSD - MZ-76Q1T0BW for $149 ($19 cashback from Samsung). It was $155 yesterday. Good on ya Click Frenzy and CentreCom.

  • Wow thank you, was about to buy for 209 (plus drive to a store) today but got busy at work, perfect timing.

  • Thanks OP.

    Snatched one up. Better get building on my home NAS now ….

  • Thanks OP. Got one for my laptop as second SSD.

  • is it better to wait for black friday sales?

  • Got it at 2am after seeing this post! Dispatched a few hours ago. Many thanks OP 🥳

  • So basically, I have got the Dell G5 SE and there is space for a SATA SSD but no connection for it. There is however a connection for a M.2 NVME right beside it, how should I go about it, is there such thing as an adapter cable SATA SSD to M.2 NVME? Couldn't find any from my search.
