Spoke with Samsung Canada, they did confirm that newegg.ca is an authorized seller in Canada and then called Newegg.ca, they help me with creating a new invoice from newegg.ca which can be used for warranty
So Warranty should be covered by Samsung now
I had the same question about warranty. Has the situation improved with Samsung SSD warranties in Canada? So buying on ebay may or may not have warranty depending on the warranty policy of the manufacturer, and need to get a store invoice from an authorized seller?

Not as hot but there's also the 1TB version for $360: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/SAMSUNG-850-EVO ... 2edb158c23

Still looking for deals on NVMe SSDs.

EDIT: In chatting with Samsung, they said warranty is always provided through the "place of purchase." They could not provide any link to a warranty policy. They said if I need warranty service, I must contact the place of purchase, and if that doesn't work Samsung's team will escalate the issue... with the place of purchase. No idea how reliable this information is, but it makes me very uneasy. Stores usually support products only for 30-90 days. Do they have different arrangements with Samsung? Plus, stores can go out of business.

Amazing price... But I don't need it... Must resist the impulse buy..... Would've jumped on 1TB if it was for 300 or less though.

My only reason why I don't buy samsung SSDs because of their bad warranty policy.

decent deal, but I think the Evo 970/980 should be releasing soon, so I'm going to wait.
Thanks for that link. The 960 Evo 500GB is exactly what I was looking to get, but the warranty situation bothers me. Any clue how soon the Evo 970/980 are expected? And any alternatives to Samsung?

Intel 760p is the alternative and it's cheaper.

PM981, the OEM Samsung 970/980 Evo equivalent is already released for OEM manufacturers (e.g. Lenovo) . The way resellers are dropping prices right now, it seems like the 970/980 Evo should be releasing in the next two months.

here's some benchmark and reading material on the new PM981 . https://www.anandtech.com/show/12082/th ... -3d-nand/4

Personally, I would just wait a bit and get the 970/980 Evo. Price point should be similar to current pricing but with better performance

Unfortunately I have to get something very soon. Alternatively, I'm thinking to get a higher capacity SATA SSD (Crucial MX500 1TB) now, and wait for better/cheaper NVMe options down the line.

I'm still really hesitant about Samsung's warranty. Despite their performance, I might go for another brand for peace of mind and not to encourage shitty business practices.
