Notes:

B&H and Newegg still have this for $350 ($10 more) but useful if you have cashback options or seller preferences.

Amazon, Best Buy, B&H, and Newegg all have the 1T for $180.

Why buy this when you can get a Sabrent Rocket for a ton less. TD
Because warranties do matter, especially when it comes to PC storage.

Three major reasons,
1) TLC (Samsung) vs QLC (Sabrent). On a TLC chip, that's 3 bit per cell, on a QLC that means 4 bit per cell. Read/Writes are done per cell. So if you need to change 1 bit, in a cell. it would mean you have to read the cell and write back the entire new cell. This performance penalty can usually be offset with some cache. Higher density also increases potential failure rates as each read/write causes degradation of the cell.
2) Endurance, because of the reasons above in Cell. The TBW (how much you can write to the ssd before estimated failure) is also quite different, The Sabrent is 530TBW and the Samsung is 1200TBW.
3) Warranty. Sabrent is only 5 years if you register it. Otherwise, it's for 1 year. I imagine plenty of people don't register their products right away.
Another Minor reason,
1) Larger Dram cache, better random performance and better handling when the SLC cache has depleted.

That being said... Honestly, unless you have a very specific purpose like a media cache drive for video editing. The Sabrent will work for most people (like 99% of people). I imagine most people will get a new computer before getting anywhere near 530 TBW nor can I imagine people are dumping so much data onto the drive (from another extremely fast storage device) that the Cache would end up depleted. But can you really put a price on your peace of mind that the Samsung should last you more than twice as long with your data?

P.S. The answer should be yes as a reminder, Backup! Make sure you have a backup for your important data on your computer.

Sabrent is the new King Of SSDs, dethroning Samsung? That's news to me.

Yeah, it will come when it has to. This is the best right now. And whatever new comes, it wont go for next 2-3 years, at least

I have 960 Evo 250GB as a primary disk and yes I know it's bad because it's almost full and I'm tired of deleting and moving files to free up space.

Should I buy now with that price or wait until Black Friday (for more discount?) because of 980 Evo coming?

Depends on if you are willing to wait or not. If I'm in your situation, I would have already bought a larger driver just to stop from having to manipulate space. Since it is on sale for $340 now, ask yourself if you're willing to lose $40 plus tax by waiting till holiday sales. I wouldn't but mostly because I don't have that kind of patience.

If PCIE 4.0 is important to you due to your work, then 980 would be up your alley but you will pay much more. I'm guessing but I think it would retail around $500 at least initially.
