Because many legacy computers lack nvme support AND the performance difference with everyday tasks is actually minimal.
Because I have more SATA ports than nvme slots and it's still faster than my network speed so it's not really that slow at all.
Also 7% cash back through PayPal under offers.

Most likely will drop further in the coming months. I couldn't wait any longer as my 2TB 860 EVO is out of space, so I pulled the trigger on the 4TB. With the cash back, this puts it around the same price as the 4TB Crucial MX500. Not crazy slick, but pretty decent.

I watch NAND prices closely. Strong agree on this. Samsung has been very slow to react to the price pressure and has lost out on a ton of sales as a result. They are behind the curve on reducing prices.

However, in the long term, I suspect they may kill the 860 series, or nerf it somehow. It's too expensive to produce and sell at the prices we are going to hit.

Soooo true. Samsung has been behind the curve big time. I honestly wanted to get some of the 4tb's for a 2 bay mini-NAS. I have two 2tb set up in my workstation for processing cloud point data and they have held up very well for 4 years of abuse.

Yay, prices are slowly sliding down. My dream of building an 8 x 8TB SSD NAS may yet happen in my lifetime, but it still is at least 2 years until it looks to be economically viable for me (unless a significant and wonderful development happens in mass storage).

Other than compatibility, why do people spring for these SSD's? They are slow, quite frankly outdated, and there are MUCH faster options for cheaper.
