    Give it another year or two and these things will be a fraction of the cost, but a 2TB SSD in that Form Factor is great news, looking forward to cramming one of these in my PS4 in the future.

    Once these come down in price, I'll have no need for mechanical drives in my computers anymore. Finally I'll be able to have most of my Steam games on one SSD.

    From the article:

    The 850 Pro is designed for power users and client PCs that may need higher performance with up to 550MBps sequential read and 520MBps sequential write rates and up to 100,000 random I/Os per second (IOPS). The 850 EVO SSD has slightly lower performance with 540MBps and 520MBps sequential read/write rates and up to 90,000 random IOPS.

    Is the 850 Pro's additional 10MBps sequential write speed and 10,000 random IOPS worth the $200 premium over the EVO if I intend to use an SSD primarily for gaming?

      The PRO uses MLC NAND memory which gives it a much longer lifespan compared to the EVO's TLC NAND. If you just care about speeds then the $200 premium isn't worth it.
