You have to REALLY want this drive. Otherwise the MX500 for better performance per dollar, or any NVMe for better performance overall.

I've been looking at getting an SSD for a few days, but this drive hasn't been MORE expensive than the current price on Amazon since last February. Not sure why it's getting posted now.

Might as well go NVME if you pay this much for ssd. Wow. The Samsung QVO 1tb is around $90-$110. I got it when it was $80. Why get this?

In my case at least, I have a slightly older system that literally cannot boot from an M.2 drive on PCIe, and putting an M.2 in a 2.5" M.2 to SATA adapter, and then that in a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter would just seem a bit silly. While the QVO is certainly no slouch, the EVO beats it in pretty much every benchmark. I'm hoping to eventually see this one drop to $120 before I'll bite. My system is having some occasional hiccups (nothing terminal, just annoying) so I'm hoping that such a price will coincide with whenever I decide to format and reinstall Windows.

I'm just wondering if the line will be discontinued before it ever reaches that price again.

Edit: It was actually down to ~$108 for most of last December. Wish I'd known I needed this back then. Perhaps I can wait until next December to see what happens.

I doubt it. Unless they a losing sales from cheaper brands like Crucial and Teamgroup.

You can get it for $149.99 though so this isn't a deal at all. https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-In...078DPCY3T/
