I think uniday discount for the 970 EVO is cheaper or as cheap. If you don't have uniday then sure this might be worth it, but there are other SSD that are much better for cheaper like the HP SSD NVME.

A little too early to expect that but competitors have finally released NVME drives that can compete with Samsung's drives. Even to the point where Samsung had to forcibly lower the price before their actual launch day for the 970s. I would think around next year summer depending on how many of the Samsung drives are sold.

Doesn't feel like a solid deal being last year's model. I would've hoped the 500GB version to go for $140.

What's the smallest size SSD one should be running a higher but not top-end Windows 7 desktop on, and what's the largest size that makes sense (i.e. anything larger is just a waste of money)? Ready to build my new PC and I'm trying to get an idea of what I need. Never bought or used an SSD before.

I feel like, as long as you have other "storage/data" drives, 500gb is the sweet spot for price and capacity.

Look at these posts and then look at the thread rating. I don't know why Amazon doesn't just buy SD and skip the subterfuge.

I bought a 960 pro 512gb and a 1tb 960 evo, which is overkill tbh but I had money to throw but reasonably if you just want it for your os and maybe very few games you main get a 250gb one, if not get a 500gb about pro and evo id say the differences are neglible for daily usage so go for whats cheaper(if youre trying to save)

False. The Samsung 960 evo beats the WD in every metric. The only advantage that the WD has is price. That said, you are unlikely to notice a difference under most loads.

That's the prior gen model. The WD on sale is the Gen3. You can refer to Userbenchmark.com for specific model numbers.

The model you linked from AnandTech is TLC NAND. WD on sale is 3D NAND.
