    Disappointing pricing as the 860 EVO 1TB is £170 on Amazon right now. They would have to hit the £100 mark for a reduced warranty, lower MTBF and QLC uncertainty to be a deal maker.

    It's 'almost' at a price where I'd pick it over a 1TB hard drive as my 'storage' drive in my PC if I needed to replace one (no point replacing a storage drive when it's working fine).

    Like above I'd like to see it closer to £100, actually I'd like to see it closer to HD prices of £40, though. We all know ssd prices have a huge markup because there were plenty of offers on 1TB ssd's around £100 over Black Friday and it's not like they're going to sell them at a loss.

    Hang on...

    Isn't MLC NAND 2 bit and TLC nand 3 bit?

    Also, I wouldn't bother even at £100 per TB.
    Not when a 4 TB HDD is £84.

    I'm interested in smaller QLC cheap as chips drive to bang into a RAID0. 4TB across 4 drives on SATA3 would be a fraction of the cost of M.2 and only benchmarks would show a difference of speed.

    Re: Samsung launches 860 QVO SSDs with up to 4TB capacity

    Stick to what I bought. Crucial MX500 1TB, now $13 less than I paid...LOL. $127 everywhere for 1TB right now in USA (2 days after I got my 512GB delivered...LOL, dang it I wanted a 2nd TB model) with proven tech and the same speeds. Need more speed, have a bit more to spend buy an HP ex920. Almost bought a crucial P1 for Black Friday, but after reading, HP was going to win that purchase hands down but they were out of stock (no surprise, best drive for the money for speed). I'll keep going crucial to support usa rather than china unless their drive just sucks (P1 fast but questionable as a major WRITE type guy here). HP upped the writes and warranty so I wanted one of those as their perf is great.

    OH well, maybe nvme/pcie next Q. I can wait for 96 layer from USA too if forced I still have 2 wireless keyboards to buy (logitech K810's, same as other HTPC) for 2 HTPC's being built, so yet another SSD will have to wait a bit unless some great last minute xmas sale hits. Every PC in the house has SSD boot drives now anyway so after that it's just icing to me (boot/app/game starts are what I mostly wanted to be fast). Just looking to replace all internals with 1TB at this point. I only buy 8TB externals now as I move 3TB models out of their shells and into HTPC's...LOL. It's a never ending treadmill for PC's. Certs or hardware...ROFL. I currently have too many spinning drives in my PC's for my taste still (3 in my main pc, 2 SSD's too). I want that down to ONE spinning drive in each PC at some point, & the rest SSDs. I'm looking VERY forward to next year though. 7nm gpu, cpu, DDR5 etc, 2TB at 1TB costs probably in SSD. YUMMY. I'll be saving all year to explode next Christmas on PC parts...ROFLMAO. This year I'd call a dud. Too many things just out of reach tech wise. If 7nm had hit, I'd have had a major xmas this year in gpu and cpu. Oh well. Instead I'm basically just moving stuff around a bunch with 1 PC purchase in parts on top. Such is life Replacing multiple rokus was ok for $100 though Everyone enjoys that at home. Youtube, rewinding/ff etc all works better on new 4's than old 2's or 3's. Voice search enjoyed by all.
