Now I'm kicking myself--- Was getting the 970 evo for $170 a good deal when for only $30 more I could have had the pro? From what I've read, there isn't a huge difference for most users-- but I'm not quite sure what defines 'most users'

I'd like to have some input as well. I picked up the 970 evo on that $170 deal also.

Unless you're doing a ton of sustained data transfers (as in like hundreds of TB worth), there's very limited difference in real world performance between the 970 Evo and 970 Pro (or honestly even the fastest SATA SSDs). You're fine with the EVO Smilie

i think main thing to consider for Pro is the warranty level

Yep, the warranty level and the NAND type itself, which is a huge deal for data centers and professional media companies, like video editors..etc.

PRO is 2-bit MLC
EVO is 3-bit MLC
Hence a little less latency and double endurance ratings, 600 vs 300TBW.

Also, if I am not mistaking, PROs come with larger SLC caching size, which again, means better continuous speeds in sequential writes when "turbo write" needed.

You always get what you pay for!!!

As of the 970 series the warranty on both EVO and PRO is 5 years.

Not true. Pro uses MLC and EVO uses TLC.
