Good deal if you are looking for 4tb. Most ssd is around 100 per tb now. You can find some that are cheaper. If you want faster you can get nvme 2tb for about 170 (cheapest) buy a pcie adapter for 2 or 4 nvme (raid 0).

If you just want a storage drive, get a spinny drive. 100 for 8tb if you are lucky. They are selling (cheapest) about 120 now... maybe 130 on this forum.

You got a thumbs down on your post but you are correct.

Nvme prices are now THE SAME as Sata at all sizes. So using sata is only IF you don't have any more nvme access on your motherboard.

if you have $400 to spend on SSD by itself you should be upgrading the motherboard,cpu

There aren't any consumer 4TB NVMe's out but there are a few server ones for stupid prices. This is a good deal IMO. Using NVMe for bulk storage is ridiculous.

That depends. An NVMe requires and M.2 slot in order to be bootable (assuming you don't have $1000 for a bootable raid PCIe adapter, I guess). For those who need/want more space but don't need more processing power, this is perfect. I'm on the fence as my system (16 core Xeon with 64GB of ECC RAM) is fast enough, but my 2TB SSD is getting full, which means limited write-leveling. It's either this or move my 1.4TB data set to its own drive. The latter may be less disruptive.

Well, no M.2's exist, upgrading the motherboard in my thin and light laptop isn't an option, but it does have an open 2.5" SATA slot.

This deal no longer exists on B&H but it does on Amazon.

Just because it's cheaper? I am not sure the warranty on that but Samsung is top notch and for only a few dollars more.

  1. Enterprise vs consumer grade
  2. higher MTBF/ DWPD/ TBW
  3. TLC vs QLC
Don't mind me. Most people should probably just get the QVO. Speeds are probably better on it for most people. I've just been staring at enterprise drives too long.
