Just picked up the 1TB 960 Evo this week. Definitely worth the money.

How so? I paid R3.5k for a brand new 1TB 850 EVO a few weeks ago on Carb and I don't see how much better things are supposed to get in day to day use. Boot up is around 10 seconds, everything is fast, good for gaming etc.

I am planning on buying the Samsung 960 500GB EVO in a few months time... I am over this slow 1TB HDD. Confirmed with Asus this notebook has a M.2 slot :)

Carbonite is the way to go!

Got a Samsung SM863 960GB enterprise drive in feb/2017 for R3.3k, only had 90hrs of use on it. Was a server backup drive lying in storage, 5yr warranty. Thanks Ajay ;)

Replaced a boot drive with a 512GB SSD (+/- R2,000) - best upgrade in terms of performance.
Never going back to spinning rust.

I'm waiting for the next step up after SSDs
As a desktop user you wont really notice the improvement unless using it for certain applications.
