Solid State Drive Drive
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.
What's difference between MZ-76P1T0E and MZ-76P1T0BW?
I've just noticed when I went through some searching :
https://www.samsung.com/us/business/products/computing/ssd/client/860-pro-1tb-mz-76p1t0e/
and
https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/ssd-860-pro-2-5--sata-iii-1tb-mz-76p1t0bw/

EDIT : According to url, it says business, so I'm assuming basically one is E=enterprise and BW=consumer version. But still, in terms of specs, I don't see any difference between those two.

MZ-76P1T0E mentions NAS, perhaps it has the very expensive 'time-limited error recovery (TLER)' bit set in the firmware (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Error_recovery_control) - that, along with 1000byte KBs, has to be the biggest ripoff around.

Oh, and Enterprise devices usually have higher profit margins...
Feel like there are some strange comments around this drive and its pricing. This is meant for a specific audience who wants great long-term write endurance with pretty much the best performance you can get from a SATA-III connection. If you are not in that audience, you are right you should be using another drive.

For an insane amount of detail about these drives, read this: https://www.anandtech.com/show/12348/the-samsung-860-pro-512gb-and-4tb-ssd-review

For someone like me who still has hard-drives from 10+ years ago running in my build, I appreciate a drive that will survive even as the boot drive gets replaced to faster alternatives.

Thank you sir for you post. Not only is the intended use of this type of drive different due to its extended lifespan vs standard EVO drives it also out performs by a decent amount. If you look past the specs and look at real world benchmarks on PRO vs EVO it helps to see that the pro series is for sure the superior drive in almost every way.

effective speed - 3% faster.
Not to pile on, but this is not even remotely a good deal. I can pick up a TB now for $200.

i completely agree. But for me at least, the price difference is outrageous compared to the spec bump. It’s negligable enough that I’m not even sure why I’d want that for the price and I edit 4K video.
Buy a Crucial MX500 and same some money
Way too much $$$ just to have the "PRO" moniker and another 12GBs

Its not just a moniker. There are users that need drives like this VS standard SSD drives like the Samsung EVO series. As another user pointed out there is alot of information to be found here... https://www.anandtech.com/show/12348/the-samsung-860-pro-512gb-and-4tb-ssd-review

My point is that in everyday use most people will never be able to see any real world difference between the two drives. Do a double blind test amongst your friends and have them try to pick out which machine has which drive.
