Lol this drop is joke, the same hard drive is 3 dollars cheaper on newegg. Just get it on there.
I'd rather get the far superior 970 EVO from Amazon cheaper. I know M.2 NVMe drives aren't compatible with all systems, but if you're building a new system you really should get a board that supports them.

M.2 works with basically everything that has PCI-e, it just might not be boot-able. since you can put windows 8/10 bootloader on any drive that works with your bios then boot the NVME there is really no reason to not do nvme if you are doing a premium drive. But, the evo is not an upgrade to this. The evo uses cheaper nand and does not have the write life. This drive is really not intended for gaming unless you are running capture to it.

Actually, the Samsung warranty periods and TBW guarantees are exactly the same between the 970 EVO and the 860 PRO. You might be referring to the higher TBW of the 960 PRO and 970 PRO. Not sure about the NAND quality, though, you might be right about that.
This price is the “old” price from over a year ago. Just yesterday a saw Samsung 500 GB for $88.00, and last week bought 1TB for $167.00 all with free shipping.

this is the PRO not the EVO drive. They are for different target markets. PRO is for professional sustained use and high speed. EVO is for everyday personal use.
Amazon has it foe $55 for this same 256gb drive.

this is the 860 PRO not the EVO. Different target markets.
Uses my computer's "unused data" as a cache, huh.

What’s with these prices? Is MD planning on buying them cheaper on Amazon just to flip them to us for a profit?
Howdy, Sorry about the mixup on the pricing for this drop. All pricing has been updated at this point. Cheers.

Still cheaper on amazon, why would I buy it here?
B.Hutch
I still don't see any "commit" price(s). Where is the price drop for a sufficient mass of purchases? I'm old enough to remember when the name of this website meant something.
Sad.
Overpriced SSD from Massdrop: $99.99. Entertainment value of the discussions that ensue: Priceless.
All that's missing is something along the lines of "But wait! Pay double for the first one and we'll send you a second one free!"

But wait, there's more! How many times have you said: "I wish my SSD could cut through a shoe!"? Now introducing, the Ronco x Samsung x Massdrop Super Knife-SSD--solving all your memory and cutlery needs in one slim overpriced package!
Get cracking on this new collab idea @Massdrop...
Massdrop, every time you post an SSD we go through this. The base model is the closest, but every capacity level higher increases the price gap by about $50 US. The 2tb version is literally $150 cheaper other places.
This "Deal" isn't for the people doing research though, is it? How many people do you expect to buy this simply because you call it one?
Edit: While the prices reflect much closer to the current pricing else where (Within $30 instead of $150 at the top end), they are still more expensive for more effort. Why will anyone wait 3 1/2 weeks to pay more for a product they could get within a few days for cheaper?

I visit these ridiculous drops only to read the comments.
No no no you no buy this. You get this insetad: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147674&cm_re=samsung_ssd-_-20-147-674-_-Product Massdrop you gotta stop putting this jank up. Also do you need the Pro drive instead of the EVO? No, No you don't.
Currently cheaper on Amazon & Newegg. SSD prices have been dropping recently and there have been a number of "sales" on quality drives.

I'm beginning to think that Massdrop waits till the end of a drop and then orders however many they need from Amazon or Newegg. 2 day shipping to Massdrop then they put individual mailing labels on them and ship them out.... Works out about right when you look at MD's estimated shipping date.
Hey, Massdrop, do you have interns negotiating these deals? You might want to reinforce during orientation that they should be negotiating 'significant' discounts because of the large quantity of sales that will result. Unless, of course, you're grooming them to work in a retail store when they graduate...and if that's the case you're doing a hell of a job with them.
107.99 on Amazon right now
Amazon has this cheaper. Waste.
Cheaper with faster shipping across the board at Amazon.
interweb
its $112 on amazon for 256gb., $109 here. faster shipping, yes. yawn. no complaints.

i dont understand... i see other internal ssds sell for so much cheaper, what makes this one worth paying more for?

Samsung has always maintained a slight premium and mostly deserves it but whether or not anything their drives offer is worth any extra to you just depends on your use maybe. Their controller is a bit better in some aspects but most users may not appreciate it in real life use. The biggest difference here is the MLC 2 bit memory (predecessor to the TLC 3 bit that most drives these days use). It's technically a bit slower (only noticeable in just a few situations) but it is also more durable/dependable over time and that is reflected in the total lifetime writes in the warranty (and this is true for any brand, not just Samsung). TLC is cheaper to produce, which seems contradictory almost, and it also allows for more density (larger drives) so for consumers it's a win win. The Pro drives also add a few usable gigs giving you more overhead for write operations and overprovisioning, so if you tend to keep your drive pretty full you've got a little more room before the reduced space affects speed. Overall there is not a huge difference for most home users, imho.

Now, the Samsung 850 Pro was worth every penny because it has a shiny 10-year warranty over this drive's 5-year warranty, if I was anyone here, I would buy the Samsung 850 Pro SSD (yes it costs more than the 860 Pro). Personally, at this price point you might as well buy an m.2 drive instead.
Samsung makes good quality stuff that lasts.
Good drives, not compelling price points.
I thought the point was for it to be cheaper than what you can get on Amazon or most sites?? Confused!
really? at this price when 870 pro 512 sells for less than 200?

860 pro has problems compared to the 870 EVO as well and is about the same in all performance as the 860 EVO, let alone the 970 EVO (which is 2x to 4x faster than the 870 EVO).
All you are paying for in the pro lineup are features that 99% of users won't even need. That last 1% are c-levels at corporations, and they should spend the extra cash to get a 970 Pro anyways as there are substantial performance advantages to a 970 Pro over an 860 Pro.
This is not a good deal, anyone looking at this would be better off getting a 970 EVO in almost any situation.

have you tried the pro and evo in comparison except just looking at the specs? i have been using evos and pros at work for 5 years now and the the computers are the same. except the for the hard drive. the the pro ones work faster and last a lot longer
Newegg has the 512 model for 209.00
Only the 256mb is cheaper than Amazon (by $3.00) while all other sizes are considerably cheaper on Amazon. Glad they are on here but no real incentive to buy unfortunately.

Useless drop. Cheaper on Newegg!
Very surprised I got an email from New Egg the other day they were selling the Samsung. Pro Drive cheaper then what I paid. But the kicker that really surprised me was their every day price was cheaper then what I paid and that is the Pro drive that I am talking about.
If you're buying for capacity, there are plenty of cheaper options. If you're buying for performance, there are the 970 drives at the same price with MUCH faster read and write speeds as well as superior endurance... unless your "performance" is limited by the lack of M.2 or PCIE slots. SATA is pretty much the limiting factor for SSDs these days, almost every brand can max it out these days.
Note to Massdrop: I hope you can manage to have these Samsung 860 PRO SSD drops regularly, so that I can purchase another one when my finances will allow. Unfortunately, that's not the case for this particular drop (sad emoji).

Yep, you should see these drop every 4/5 weeks so no worries.
