I bought the Samsung 980 Pro 2TB NVME drive on Amazon For $313 on June 21st on a lightning deal. Still waiting for DDR 5 memory to install my new mobo and Alder Lake CPU.

The endurance is Not a problem for a regular user (non server/enterprise use).

Samsung 980 Pro 1 TB Endurance 600TBW 5-years warranty.
Samsung 980 Pro 2TB Endurance 1200TBW 5-years warranty.
TBW=TeraBytes Written

Let's say that an ordinary office work writes 30GB/day (read doesn't affect this):
Formula (TBW x 1024) / 30 GB)=days
  • 600TBW x 1024 /30GB= 20480 days or 56 years.
  • 1200TBW x1024 /30GB=40960 days or 112 years.
Other electronics on the device has stopped working long before endurance will become a problem.
Btw. I have a Samsung 980 Pro 2TB M2 and Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD (10-years warranty) and I am extremely satisfied.

Best regards from Sweden

Won't Amazon give you the difference back? I mean, given that it's still within the 30 day returns period.

Uh, disclaimer: I don't know if there's any limitations to that on Lightning Deals or not.

Seems weird if the answer is no, and you'd have to go through the whole "buy another and return the original" process.
