well, maybe I want the slower one. Maybe the Pro is too fast for me.

Woot is selling the 960, not the 970.

OK.

960:

  • max read up to 3,200 MB/s
  • max write up to 1,900 MB/s
  • terabytes written: 100
  • ssd userbenchmarks overall benchmarks: 198%
  • scored 89th out of 1058

970 EVO Plus:

  • max read up to 3,500 MB/s
  • max write up to 3,300 MB/s
  • terabytes written: 1,200
  • 53% faster than 970 EVO (which has superseded the 960)
  • ssd userbenchmarks overall benchmarks: 248%
  • scored 49th out of 1058

Last point- if you read the consumer reviews for the 970 but filter them by “960” the are overwhelmingly pleased by the 970 over the 960.

We’re not buying the it for the version name.
Slower performance, lower life, lower rank: $66.99
Better performance, longer life, higher rank: $52.99

This is actually really good for using it with raspberry pi hack boxes and ham radio setups
