  1. wheres the 2TB model….

  2. Other companies already have 1 & 2 TB models out.

  3. Give them a little time. If the demand is there they will likely add the larger capacities. As the press release alludes to, the high demand for the lower capacity models convinced them to offer the 500GB. The same scenario may very well play out for even larger capacity versions.

  4. This is a budget drive and is one of the best bang/buck you can currently buy.

    • Would any of you be interested in the Samsung Semiconductor Enterprise version of the EVO which is more robust and cheaper (than the Samsung Electronics consumer division)?

    Is this a retail drive or is it still limited to OEMs ?
