Yep. cheaper on amazon, don't even bother.
Does massdrop even pricecheck things before adding this garbage to their site?

MD is relying on "there's a sucker born every minute" adage :)
Just to make it clear to everyone - MD vs Amazon:
MD 960 EVO 500GB - 163 USD 1TB - 330 USD
Amazon 970 EVO 500GB - 140 USD 1TB - 278 USD
This is not "lol MD get over yourselves", this is outrageous.

Anzial
yea it isnt. dint read it right
I have this SSD. It is pointlessly fast, so I would recommend the Samsung 860 Evo instead, which is cheaper and plenty fast.

Pointlessly fast for most people.
FuckHead-Fi
Speed is never pointless... not that it matters, this drop is pointless from any point of view, a faster 970 evo is cheaper and available for immediate shipping from Amazon and other online stores.
Do NOT buy this, 970 EVO is cheaper on Amazon with 2 day delivery.... Force Massdrop to stop overpricing Old stock!!!!!!
KetelOne
Pay more in advance, wait a month to get your stuff, that's the MD way :D

Yeah, I was here precisely to say this. I've been hunting for an NVMe 1tb drive to upgrade my XPS13 to and $330 seems WAY overpriced for both Amazon & Newegg prices.
The Samsung 970 Evo, which is the better version of this is cheaper on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BN217QG
I'm surprised B.Hutch didn't come up with a reason for why this drive is better than an cheaper and better performing 970 evo available for immediate shipping on Amazon, newegg and so on lol

The 970 EVO is the same price and is significantly better performance and newer. This isn't much of a deal.
Amazon has the 970 EVO for the same price. Glad I looked.
Amazon has the 970evo for the exact same price, don't waste your money.
why
They're cheaper on Amazon.
Is it just me or there's no mention of 60mm or 80mm ?
Whats weirder is that the Dell XPS 13 9360 only accepts 60mm but the compatibility check on Amazon says this model on MD will fit...

Um, I have an XP 13 9360. It's definitely 80mm.

Thanks! Good to know that I can get 2280 form factor when this next drops.
wish it was 500GB this is barely enough.
Atelopus
They're offering 500 and 1T as well...choose after you click the join drop button. $170 for the 500, which is currently about the going price (which could change tomorrow, and again the next day...).
Atelopus
There is a 500GB 970 evo for $150 on slick deals. No reason to join this drop at all.
Wow...
I made a post on this EXACT drop 8 weeks ago... they are still trying to ship this sub par product as a deal!
As of Aug 15 on amazon these are all almost cheaper. The 250GB on Massdrop is $94.99 and wait a month - Amazon $100.33 - http://a.co/dbwGRHw The 500GB on MassDrop $169.99 and wait a month - Amazon $168.90 - http://a.co/2DFasBo The 1TB on Massdrop is $319.99 and wait a month - Amazon $298.98 - http://a.co/5byp8xg
HOWEVER!!!
The MUCH improved version of this Samsung drive (970 EVO ) is only slightly more and still get it a lot faster. 250GB - $107.99 - http://a.co/2vuEoly 500GB - $179.99 1TB - $349.99 2TB - $744.38 (just showing Samsung expanded on this product due to its success.)
Please pass on this drop... it only lets Massdrop keep treating us like idiots and pushing bad deals and great ones to people who may not know. I'm starting to like using cars as a comparison for people.
It is like if you went to a car dealer and wanted to buy a car and they show you last years model that is not a bad car, but the brand new one which is undeniably better in every way and it is CHEAPER, but they keep pushing the old car to you saying you are getting a great deal... how would you feel about that dealership?

the problem is that Massdrop is based in San Francisco, so they have to make enough profit to support the absurd commercial rent prices, and high cost of living for it's employees.

That does sound like it would create a remarkable increase in the baseline upkeep.
I don't know how to substantiate your claim, the reality, or any list of pros and cons. I'm just vaguely familiar with the idea of living/operating space costing an arm and a leg in certain places, like big Cali cities.
The people of the world (specifically NOT the world itself) are rather averse to transparency in these matters. Ipsa scientia potestas est.
A whole 5 dollars cheaper than Amazon! POGGERS
Except it's at your door in 2 days vs. however long it will take to get these delivered.....
Not to mention the 970 being just $10 more than this for the latest version of these M.2 ssds
Cellar
True ...for 1TB, Amazon is even cheaper, asking $300 vs $95+$225=$320!
A valid point for 970 too.
Again with the non-deal SSD's. Equal/cheaper other places with faster shipping, same song and dance we've done for awhile now.
With the NAND shortage that's been going on for nearly 2 years we're likely not going to see anything better on this site until the market gets oversupplied. Next 6 months to 1 year we should see prices dropping, but right now it's just not worth it.
Thephoenix3000
seriously. you can get the 960 or 970 on Amazon with Prime shipping for cheaper.
So many drops recently have been cheaper elsewhere. It's getting annoying.
Spacecore
Came here to note Microcenter is offering the same price today. $5 Cheaper if you get a motherboard too.

I can't help but suspect that the people that joined this drop doesn't check Slickdeals.
It is $110 for 250GB, $170 for 500GB and $300 for 1TB on Amazon. Unless you are buying the 250GB version, I don't see join this drop.
This isn't even a good deal, it's cheaper on Newegg atm
price is so cheaper, love it :D
cheaper on amazon =\
While I can't agree that this is a good drop, I can't say it's a bad one. It is a deal for this drive. Admittedly there are better deals, but I would have bought one of these except that I just purchased the 970 evo.
So here's the problem Massdrop. The newer 970 model which is currently cheaper than the 960 model and can be grabbed for comparable other places. At best you save $20 on the 1TB model, but have to sacrifice over 3 weeks to get it. With Prime Day just finishing the 500gb model was just at $160 so this doesn't feel like a deal.
So while I understand you are at the mercy of your distributors and their margins, this just feels like it's just a waste.
Not a deal
This is 100 bucks more expensive than both what the 500 and the the models cost on Amazon yesterday, they had a sale, this is just retail
Massdrop: Don't do drops on storage drives or graphics cards. They are always bad drops.

SSD's have been dropping, and video cards are crashing now. Some have dropped over $100 in one month, and it won't stop crashing for a while due to the sheer amount they produced. Most went to people who mine, and are reselling them on ebay. That forces retailers to drop prices to where they should have been if there was no mining craze. I expect to see some very good deals in the new few months. For example some people recently scored 1080 ti's for under $500 at ebay with the 15% coupon. Pricing will only go lower as the market gets more saturated with them.

Yeah that was a post from a month and a half ago Things didn’t start changing until the ram shortage ended and suppliers got their share, and Invidia announced their new lines of graphics cards.
