Expert product information on newegg SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State
Beau L.

Q. visitor asked, OK, I currently have the 840 EVO 500GB and it has been stricken with the degrading performance defect that so many 840's have. Samsung customer support want to send me a refurbished model and that is not right to me, since this is a manufacturer defect.. There really isn't a limit to the amount of SSD's you can have, correct? As long as you have enough SATA ports on the motherboard?

Thank you for contacting Newegg! My name is Josh, how can I help you today?
Hello, Josh! Do you have any idea why the 500GB Samsung EVO is $149 when the 1TB model is $349? The prices for the SSD that is twice the size used to be twice the price, but I was going to purchase the 1TB model only to find it is not a good deal.
Josh K.
I'm not sure why it's not just double the price honestly, only thing I can think is the 500GB just took a drop in price and they haven't done the same for the 1TB

Yeah that doesn't make sense to just send you the same thing
