I'm wanting to pick up a nicer SSD M.2 than what I'm currently rocking (WD 250GB SSD M.2). Obviously both 970's are going to give me a major jump in read/write speeds, my question is which one should I pick up? The EVO 1TB & the Pro 512GB are the exact same price right now. Pro has slightly faster speeds but the EVO is x2 the amount of storage. I currently have a 250GB & I still have some room left on it. So where I'm stuck is the 1TB would obviously be nice & although I'd definitely store more on it then I currently do with my WD SSD, I doubt I would need that much storage. The pro is faster; only slightly to where I likely wouldn't notice but I'm guessing it will have a longer life(?)
The pro is on sale for $256.00 off which makes it the same price as the EVO's normal price, so by just looking at it from this standpoint the pro obviously has something that is worth $256.00 more in it right?
Both of these SSD's come with 600 TBW/ 5 year.
