Nothing to see here, another useless PC related drop. You can find cheaper and better SSDs in the wild, and without the wait.

1TB Samsung EVO 870 is going for like 145 and it's better than this one and you get it in a day or 2. SSD prices went down to as low as 100$ for 1tb on black friday. Check reddit r/buildapcsales for constant deals btw if you're getting a new pc.

Cool, so I went to go find the specifications based on your "Evo 870", which is Evo 860 from what I found, typo I guess. Samsung spec on performance alone is lower than this seagate model. https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/product/consumer/860evo/

https://www.seagate.com/www-content/datasheets/pdfs/barracuda-ssd-DS1984-3-1806-WW-en_US.pdf

https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/product/consumer/860pro/ The difference isn't much, but that means what you stated was incorrect. How would Samsung Evo 860 be better if the specs are less and the price of the Evo is more expensive than this drop? Another question is, Pro 1TB has roughly the same specs as these Seagate models. Since, I am keen on pricing, I noticed that the Pro 1TB is $280. That is a huge difference in price for literally the same specs. Can you concur on this? or am I looking at something wrong? I am not a fan of Seagate, Sky Hynix, or Samsung. Just want the bang for my buck. Please comment back and let me know your 2 sense.

SAMSUNG Evo is the king of SSDs, wether you like it or not, facts are facts and you can just check the benchmarks, and for sure they're the most reliable. Here's the first link I found on google https://www.storagereview.com/seagate_barracuda_ssd_review The QD1 number in this Seagate ssd is very low. As I said the ssd prices on black friday were as low as 100$ for 1TB, Evo 860 for 110$ (I think, or 115), they're dropping fast around 10$ monthly, I wouldn't buy a 1TB for anything more than 120$. Massdrop is also a slow shipper, you can get a different brand from somewhere else and you get it in 2 days. Anyway, it' up to you, I'm done discussing. I wouldn't buy it from here for sure, price difference should be worth the wait to even think of purchasing it.
