The refurb 860 Evo 1TB at the same price was a much better deal.

As listed on Samsung's website for the 1TB model, the main difference is the endurance of the drives: (TBW) Terabytes Written" is the total amount of data that can be written into an SSD before it is likely to fail.

QVO: 
360 TBW 
520 MB/s write, 550 MB/s read 

EVO: 
600 TBW 
520 MB/s write, 550 MB/s read 

PRO: 
1200 TBW 
530 MB/s write, 560 MB/s read

I am personally holding out for the PRO version on BF.

Really tempted to buy this. Is waiting for BF going to make that much of a difference?

Since its via Amazon..you could buy it now and dont open it for a week. Worst case you get it cheaper on Friday, return this one.

I wouldn't touch a refurbished ssd. They have a finite life span; once they break it's dead. Mechanical can at least be recovered.

Thats kinda the opposite. Once an SSD reaches the limit on erase cycles it stops erasing. It becomes read only and your data is still there.

I am not saying that you are wrong, but I have already had 2 SSD's completely fail on me. They were replaced under warranty and something else may have failed, but the point is just like mechanical drives you need to backup your data.

Your comment makes it sound like SSD's you can still recover data if the drive fails. I know you specifically mentioned the "limit", but I still thought it was worth mentioning.

This or the Hyundai 960GB for $82? This is the honest question.
I only use it for data on laptop that has 2nd hard drive bay.

That finite lifespan is a really long period. Those drives came in almost new, literally powered on for a couple of hours at most.

And what joebob2000 said.
