    Got a brand new 960 Pro with 2TB (and Amazon-bill for waranty) over Ebay for 655 bucks... I prefer to stick with that because of a few reasons:

    1. Bigger litography is more robust (my nephew is still using my 256GB Crucial C300 from 2009/10).

    2. it has 2TB and not just 1! (don't understand, why toshiba is not maxing out the capacity, when you can stack 96 layers....)

    3. I have the feeling, that manufacturers will start to integrate planned obsolescense - so maybe a 970 evo 2TB will fail after 5 yeas and one day - but that's only 'a feeling' or speculation.

    Toshiba isn't because there is virtually no market for 2TB; 1TB models barely sell. SSDs still aren't suitable for static storage for both electrical and price/GB reasons.
