    I can get 3x 2TB Sammies 850 EVO for the price of one 4TB Samsung 850 EVO.

    To be fair though you are comparing old prices to new prices. Soon as this thing doesn't sell very well the price will tumble.

    We've been waiting for years now for a decent sized internal SSD 2.5" and now we have it, just have to wait for others to copy and prices to drop.

    I get your meaning but, I'm comparing current prices not old ones.

    Also a quick note that the price I saw earlier and concluded you can get 3x 2TB were wrong.

    Actually you can only get 2x 2TB 850 EVO's and have 150euros/$100 bucks left.

    As I said the price I saw and commented about getting 3x 2TB doesn't apply which although price/GB for the 4TB is higher, as Reddoguk said, it will come down later.

    For starters, you can't get that amount of Sammies into a normal laptop.

    Yeah but who's putting a $1,500 SSD into a laptop? That's more than most people spend on the entire computer.

    I'm just pointing out that several SSD for the price of one big one isn't always a solution.

    No one said it is. Its obvious that 1 SSD is better than 2 assuming its the same total capacity(unless its for RAID). ;)

    That's how it always goes. Bigger drives take advantage of people that can't get multiple drives or weirdly won't in spite of being less.
