Reviews on Samsung SSD's are kind up and down which is why I prefer Sandisk or Kingston. That is a good deal though.

$525 is still more than the consoles themselves.

Never has "cheap" been so subjective.

fuck you thats my name

Also, all you wet towels are stupid - yes it's expensive, but it's relatively cheap like Chumley said. Understand the difference.

So...your PS4 actually cost you $925? Seems like a bargain.

Bombers seem to frequently overstate the price of SSDs. This one is even a good (not great, good) one and it's not anywhere near $1K like they suggested.

I've never heard anything negative about them, the 840 Pro SF2200 based line are excellent. The Evo line more or less fall under the same bracket as things like the Crucial M500, value focused options with lower performance than their big brothers but more than enough speed especially on the big capacity drives.

Their migration utility is actually pretty sweet to if you're changing out system disks.

SSD's have come down in price big time in the past like 6 months. I remembering seeing 1 TB ones in like May that were going for 1K. That was before Samsung put out the updated versions of the ones they have now and introduced the bigger versions.

I have an 840 Pro.

The negative is that they are "old style". That is, they are designed for fast average transaction time but not for consistent transaction times. The regular and pro suffer from this, the Evo is closer to new style.

Still, the Pros are very good. But you can be sure next time out Samsung will make sure all their drives emphasize not only fast average transaction times but consistency also.
