    That's actually cheap, SSD was in the thousands before, the higher storage. And please don't insult Samsung, they actually make quality products as opposed to Apple!
    The Samsung ssds are pretty much the best you can buy, just look at their life spans during testing!

    I have two Samsung 250 GB SSD:s and one 1 TB Crucial, haven't had any issues with them.
    The Samsung disks have almost the double TBW but I don't think that the Crucial disk won't be able to handle that many writes also.
    It's just a warranty thing, you get better warranty with Samsung.
    I will keep buying Samsung and Crucial disks in the future. You can get Samsung disks at a good price during sales.

    I bought 2 of those this year both open box, both on ebay.

    1/17/2020- Samsung SSD 860 EVO, 4TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD, cost $452.99, Model: MZ-76E4T0B/AM
    4/13/2020- Samsung SSD 860 EVO, 4TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD, cost $485.00, Model: MZ-76E4T0

    Both I put each into a: Oyen Digital MiniPro 3.1 USB Type-C External Hard Drive Enclosure
    Both are fast & have had no problems. Installing the latest firmware was a bit of a pain though.

    They don't see much action as I use them to backup the WSE2016 server along w/ a coupled of (2TB) T5s (1 I keep offsite).
    When I tested them for usage w/ HD Sentinel they both had 0 usage so IMO they were new & not used.
    Ya $1,000. is a lot to spend for piece of mind + I am a weak individual when I find a good deal for something I am looking for.
