No NVME no dice for me. Bought the Adata for a little more, is NVME and considerably faster for those that can use NVME.

Honest question, is $28 worth the performance difference to the standard-setting Samsung EVO (the 860 is $167 at the 'Egg [newegg.com])?

When Anandtech reviewed the 2TB versions of the drives they said [anandtech.com] "Looking specifically at 2TB M.2 SATA alternatives to the [860 EVO m.2], we find the WD Blue 3D NAND is $50 cheaper, and the 860 EVO is definitely not worth $50 more"

UserBenchmark comparison (using 2.5" SATA version of the 860 EVO) [userbenchmark.com], I don't see a huge difference. My opinion is "probably not worth it", but YMMV.

Thanks for those links, I also came across this Anandtech review [anandtech.com] after posting which supports the notion that the WD drives are at least in the same league with Samsung now....good to know.
