Not sure if this have been posted or not. I did a quick search but can't find same item. I have never seen this low price for Samsung 960 pro NVMe m.2 drive.

I have this drive and installed Windows in 6 Mins, I don't think you can find a faster consumer based drive.

How do you know?
Cause new egg is a US based company and the prices on their US site will be translated onto their Canadian site not to those black friday deals but will get a chop in the price in some way.

Also was shopping for this very same drive yesterday and saw this price listed on other sites too so that is a sign it is not exclusive to this site and competition will be heated in a week or two since ssd drives are dropping their prices in anticipation for the biggest buying day of the year.
Yes even bigger than boxing day.

As far as I know this is second fastest consumer based ssd after Intel newly released pcie based optane yesterday. But Intel one is extremely expensive around 600 usd ( only available on newegg.com). I have bought Samsung pro earlier for 399 last time so 329 is pretty good price unless I have missed lower pricing that this.

in my opinion this a sick deal for the 960 pro. If I had cash now and m.2 port I would jump on this. Possibly the fastest drive out there.

i think this is considered their "black friday" deals, which means they have sales on select items every fridays. Might just be the same price on actual black friday

Oh, did Intel finally do something useful with optane?
Whenever someone asks a question that starts with "Why do they..." or "Why don't they...", the answer is always a) money, b) stupidity, or c) both.

Yes, Optane as an SSD not to be confused with other cached drives has been very well regarded in most review sites.

Got this a few months ago for 279 on sale at Canada computers (ncix and others had similar price and one hade the 25off with masterpass checkout). Great drive however, I'm concerned with longevity due to heat. The primary m.2 port on my Asus hero is between CPU and GPU and while I have excellent airflow, and liquid cooled CPU, the drive still reaches high 40s and my other ssds are half that. For reference, GPU at load hits 68-72 and CPU hits high 50s low 60s. There are 3d printed mounts for a little 40mm fan on my mobo for m.2 so I'll give that a try. No issues otherwise. Although, I wish I could reduce post speeds to achieve even fast boot to windows! Haha cheers
