Pro use MLC nand. EVO use TLC nand. MLC is much better than TLC if you're doing lots of writing. For basic computer use TLC is better mainly due to cost.

Far too expensive, avoid! 1TB are about £130-180 nowadays.
A little overpriced, though this drive is MLC, so other posters comparing it to TLC pricing isn't fair.
1TB is overpriced. Especially when it's not NVME. Good news SSD are due to drop further next year.
Em, guys. You are comparing MLC cell SSD made for pro type of work (e. g. video and pic editing, when you need to keep having good writing speeds through the work session) and TLC that much cheaper, meant for general home use, but will drop writing speeds significantly as soon as its cash will fill up. So in general case MLC is much faster than TLC and comparing them price to price is wrong

I know you saying. But looking at the endurance tests 860 Evo goes way beyond its TBW , 860 Pro even more so.. Samsungs aren't daft...

I have in my two htpcs original OCZ core 30gb ssds.
The main one has been in use often for 24/7 as it is the TV server, i pre-ordered these before release at a cost of about £115 each.
Both are still going strong and these being the first mlc ssds release as consumer items about 10-11yrs ago, i wish they would die so i can justify replacing them

Well lucky you - OCZ are the least reliable disks I have ever used - I had several fail - replaced them under warranty and the replacements all failed too. Would never buy OCZ again.
