The biggest difference is in their warranty terms:

EVO, 512GB 960 has a 3 year/200TBW
PRO, 512GB 960 has a 5 year/400TBW
TBW = Total bytes Written (Though it really means Terabytes)
Source: http://www.samsung.com/semiconduc.../warranty/

Search for 960 EVO or 960 PRO, they are listed at the bottom near each other.


I have a 960 EVO, purchased in 08/17, and I've written 16TB since, about 2TB a month. If I hold to that average, it would take me 8 years to hit 200TBW.


I'm a gamer and I stream, and most of those TBW were before I changed my recording drive away from the EVO and to a different SSD, but obviously there's still some amount of bytes written when gaming, streaming and recording.


I wouldn't worry about hitting the TBW cap unless you use the device for storage or as a working drive and handle files in the GBs daily.


I'm in the market for a 512GB 960 PRO, just because I expect to have his PC that long and I'm out of room on the EVO and did have to manage game installations and don't want to do that anymore, haha.


If you're also wondering how to determine TBW, I recommend CrystalDiskInfo by CrystalMark, free and easy to use though there are of course other alternatives.

Minimal improvement, however this one is TLC and Pro is MLC so the Pro would survive longer for professional work that require huge amounts of writes to the SSD. Basically the Pro should have longer life-span because of higher endurance from MLC.

$230. This is just a small deal. I suspect once the demand for these goes down you will be able to pick it up for less.

For average user, you will not be able to tell the difference.

$200 for 500GB of NVME SSD. I rather take the 2TB Micron SATA SSD for $200, I got it on ebay's 20% promo code along with PP with the Rakuten price and got it all the way down to about $200 for Micron 1100 2TB SSD. Keep in mind that even SATA SSD is already very very fast compare to HDD for most users because there's no moving parts. Unless you are actually doing professional editing work that could benefit from the NVME SSD's raw performancce, you are better off with higher capacity SSD for the same price because higher capacity translates to more steam/etc... games able to fit on the SSD.
but the m.2 form factor is so niceeeee

Plenty of people don't have that option only having an M2 slot in their ultrabooks.
