It's a very good drive but in the US it's actually cheaper to get a 970 Evo so I'd probably still stick with Samsung

NBD: check out Adata's NVME drives. Best bang for the buck IMO, at least in Canada. Their SX8200 (model # might be wrong) 960GB comes in at about $120 cheaper than a 1TB Samsung, and it's 95% as fast.

Quite a bit cheaper indeed! That's how much they should cost honestly. I bought a 1TB SSD 2 years ago for the prices they are today. Nothing has changed except speed but that's not a massive difference for a storage drive (certainly not for the money in my opinion)
