    Yes sadly the 4TB has risen considerably , i was looking for samsung 990Pro 4TB and it went from $289 to $350US Dollars on a blink of an eye.

    At least i'm good to go as i bought a whole bunch of nvme's during the lowest prices time frame. 16TB of nvme goodness will last me for many years to come hopefully.

    I picked up 2 4tb Nvme's from Newegg and 1 from Microcenter thanks to your post months back. It seems the best time to build was back in spring summer when prices fell and cards were plentiful at MSRP. That's how it was here in Michigan.

    Even that I though back then @chispy posted the thread that I went overboard with the storage, now I am sorry that I didn't buy more.
    Had 2x2aTB SSD on my shopping list, and I postponed.
    Truth to be said, it turns out to be a 1 world problem, because back then I had more pressing and important priorities on my plate, so that's that.
    Will buy what I would find and call it a day.

    What??? You got a 4tb 990 Pro for $250?? You lucky Guru you. That's awesome. I ended up buying their in house brand called Inland. R/W - 6800/7200mbps and it automatically comes with a 5 year warranty.

    I put it in my laptop. So far so good.

    Looks like Samsung SSD prices are going down and back to reality. I see a deal for 990 Pro on amazon.de right now. They probably had trouble competing with countless offerings from other brands. Competition is great.

    So, do you guy's recommend the Samsung 990 Pro 4TB? I know I should of gotten one when they were cheaper, but I had no use for one until now.

    Currently, I own a 980 Pro 1TB which has been great, but the capacity just isn't cutting anymore as I find myself having to delete games to free up space.

    Truth to be said, my storage needs increased lately, as my Proxmox servers host many VMs and LXC...well yesterday found myself deleting things.
    That's a first for me, so that's that.

    https://www.amazon.com/WD_BLACK-SN850X-Internal-Gaming-Solid/dp/B0B7CQ2CHH/ref=sr_1_3
    These are the two favs for premium performance, with the SN850X edging out in price with $10 coupon. Both have free 5 mo free financing if that is useful to you. I prefer the WD due to it using MS supplied NVMe drivers, making it easier for DirectStorage compatibility.

    For better pricing, I see the Mushkin Vortex https://www.amazon.com/Mushkin-Vortex-Internal-Compatible-MKNSSDVT4TB-D8/dp/B0BYCSVKC8/ref=sr_1_14 for $229

    https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Powe...mpatible-Playstation/dp/B0CJ2N9485/ref=sr_1_6 SP US79 for $239

    All are 4th Gen PCIe and 7000 MB/s speeds.

    Well, I went out and bought a 2tb 990 pro with heatsink for 169$ for a movies drive. In like one week it shot back up to 199$.

    Prices seem to be very unstable lately.

    I ended up getting a 2TB Western Digital SN850X for $145 USD. My current 1TB drive will be used for when I run out of space.
