Nobody would proclaim that a SSD makes for the most exciting product images, and anyone who has even a passing interest in them will be familiar with the Samsung design of an all black casing with large Samsung logo and coloured square indicating whether you have the Pro version (red square) or the Evo (grey).

Whilst old systems might go with a SSD for the operating system and a mechanical HDD for the data, technology and speeds have progressed enough that you could realistically build your system around a M.2 OS drive and this 860 Pro for Data. Anything to not endure that case-rattling vibration a HDD causes.

Nice to see such big capacities now, although for $1,899 it’s insanely expensive!Quote

Yeah, hopefully, price/GB will start going down this years as these new NAND facilities begin operation. Price/GB is only this high because of the huge demand recently, but thankfully not to the same extent as DRAM.

Hopefully 2018 is the year where the supply of PC components can finally keep up with demand.Quote

We have been hitting the limit of SATA 6GB for a few years now, there is a reason why NVMe drives were developed. My 840 Evo drives can saturate a SATA6GB connection and the 840 family are at least 5 years old now.Quote
