I think this is to good to be true: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F264231229064
$120... for an 850 evo? Used?
That's not a great deal when you can get this or this brand new at that price point, or even a WD Blue.
I just don’t know because brand new they cost 300 retail
They were discontinued and replaced by the 860 Evo. You can get a brand new one for $148 right now from a multitude of dealers and it isn't even on sale.
Thanks so much ma dood
For whatever reason, supply and demand or whatever, once the 860 evo's were released and prices steadily declined the 850 evo's didn't get the same price cuts. All that it means is you definitely shouldn't buy an 850 evo over an 860 evo... the 850 evo isn't a better drive and it's definitely not cheaper, so there's not much point to it, except maybe some unsavvy shopper accidentally buys one instead of a cheaper drive.

New old hardware pricing is fascinating.
Lol, I upgraded a SFF to maximum with a core 2 quad 6700. I bought it used on ebay for $16. Took 3 weeks to get here from Singapore or someplace but works like a charm for browsing. It certainly can be fascinating. Why are B350/370 mobo like $5 less than B450/470, seems like it should be more but what do I know.
The 850 evo has been replaced by the 860 evo for a bit over a year now. And you can get an 860 evo 1TB for $147 on Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Inch-Internal-MZ-76E1T0B-AM/dp/B078DPCY3T
And plenty of other competitive 1TB SSD's are in the $120's range, like https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-MX500-NAND-SATA-Internal/dp/B077SF8KMG, or if you've got a spare m2 slot, how a decent midrange Intel 660p NVMe 1TB for $109, https://www.amazon.com/Intel-660p-1-0TB-80mm-978350/dp/B07GCL6BR4?
So too good to be true? Or not worth caring about? For me it's the latter.
Ok thanks I’m so dumb xD
850 Evo is years old. $120 is not worth it. There are so many quality SSD's out there now a used old Samsung drive has no business flipping for $120.
