Guys
for 2.5" Sata SSD
Given the same capacity of 500GB/1TB,
Samsung 860 evo vs WD Blue 3D Nand vs Sandisk 3D ultra, if buy online (eg amazon or newegg) which one would be a better buy?

i'd assume no warranty for any of these 3?
If desktop buy the cheaper one and buy 2. Even the best ssd fails.

That is because of low yield TLC substandard chips are flooding the market now.... that's why can get the kingston A400 120G at $38 last month....

2019 will be substandard QLC chips.....

What's a "low yield" chip? Quality worse than normal? SSD will die faster?

Samsung hands down, esp seeing how cheap the 860 evo is compared to competitors right now.

All three if bought from Newegg have US warranty. Wanna rma have to mail to US.

Lousier sustained r/w speeds, lower storage limit(bout 75% or less) before speeds drop, shorter lifetime, higher chance to die etc. Dont cheapo out on ssds.

Missed this.. Wanted to grab 2x of this instead of 1TB Samsung Evo, just use 500gb for my laptop instead of 1TB while the other can place into my system. Too late. Normally will the stock come back? Or settle for WD blue?
