Adata's 1tb price is close to 860 evo's 1tb. Surely there must be some negatives for this drive?
Isn’t the successor out soon

Your getting more performance for the same money with the adata as the 860 evo is m.2 while the sx8200 pro is nvme drive. But id check your comparing the right drives.

you're comparing Adata to Samsung ?? wow !

also just realised i had regular shipping price in the title, but if you change that to DPD you get the cheaper rate.

as for 250gb vs 512gb..... SSD'S have always had a sweet spot, through the years, that sweet spot has changed, i've seen it go from 128 to 256, and now, i think you're right, price vs volume, i'd say the sweet spot for these is 512gb area, to highlight that point, the 512gbv version of this can be had for under 100 now, that's a hell of a price given what my mushkin 128gb cost me thats in this laptop i'm using!

as for new version due out.... there's always a new version just around the corner, and you'll pay the new version premium for it too !

they are both m.2 thats the format, they are both PCIe variants.... NVMe is the protocol used to communicate via BIS to the SSD, older moverboards may not support the NVMe protocol... speed differences, likely a little as the older non-NVMe drives wont have had firmware updates, the newer ones will.... however, the underlying bandwidth that determines speed is limited by the PCIe bus capabilities..... this will be the same for both
