    They look nice on paper, but Samsung usually prices themselves out of my range.

    At least at the moment, quiet expensive compare to the competition.

    Compared with its predecessor series, the 860 EVO SATA SSDs, the new lineup's perkier random read performance is said to be noticeable in common PC tasks like multitasking, web browsing, or starting up / restarting.
    Did Samsung say this? I genuine imagine I'd find it difficult to tell the difference between an 860 and this :/

    Yeah I doubt most people would notice it in those instances (can't say I noticed any difference between my 850 evo and 860 evo), however the up tick in random read/write could be beneficial in applications that go back and forwards with 'random' data to the drive... I'm thinking like a scratch disk or similar.

    Having said that I do wish the price was a little cheaper....

    Re: Samsung intros the 870 EVO consumer SATA SSDs

    I'd be curious to read a review with comparisons to the 850 Evo and 860 Evo. It's plausible to me that random read and write improvements could make a difference in a SATA SSD. First because unlike sequential speeds, even on high end SSDs these rarely saturate SATA bandwidth, and also because I've seen the impact in some workloads such as code compilation.

    $50 for 250 GB is a lot, but I'd bet the 1 TB price is not 4 times that. The lowest tier always has the worst cost per gigabyte.

    Samsung SSDs are never amazing value for money, but they're a great way to pay a high price and guarantee you get a high end SSD.

    I straight doubt this "upgrade" will provide real world use noticeable difference though.

    Any QD1 4k read and write published yet?

    There doesn't seem much progress in reads for years and years. Even the headline nvme drives don't seem to have much better QD1 4k's.
