$240 at Newegg with free shipping as well but looks like there's a $10 off code (CEMCEWET22) to bring it down to $230

My 9+-year-old Win 10 laptop boots up around 10 seconds or less now with my 860 EVO. You may just need to optimize the drive.

The Pro is an awesome drive to get.

WD has MUCH better warranty service located in Toronto. You've got to go through a 3rd party provider in NJ for Samsung

Get an enterprise SSD. You get more consistent performance and better endurance.

For anyone interested: remember not to use such drives as cache drives for your NAS (or they'll die within 1 to 2 years and take down your array even if it's read only cache).

Agreed. What would you recommend? Is there such thing as Enterprise NVME or just regular SSD?

Haha yes, yes there is.
It'll probabyl be out of your price range if you're asking that question, though Kingston and Intel do have some reasonably affordable options in their SATA entry-level enterprise SSD's.

I do have a Samsung PM983 but I'm just a reader of this chia thing. If you're gonna plot chia, get one of those because they are made to higher standards and will probably outlast the TBW rating by a lot more than a consumer drive.

Enterprise drives get swapped out every five years when the warranty runs out. They still work as if they were new. There are sellers on eBay that buy enterprise hardware and sell them individually. You can probably get an older model of Samsung 1TB drive for $200 or less. That will probably last you even longer than a new Samsung EVO or PRO. (Just my speculation though.)

At this rate, I think we will see the crypto community figure out a way to mine new crypto using desktop cases before this pandemic ends..... better stock up some fractal cases now
