I have the same SSD, it works well. Bought for ~$AU220 several years ago 
and has been 100% reliable.

Whatever the reason, it's not worth that much money.

IIRC they are both similar in speed but the 860 has a longer life 
expectancy. This site shows the 860 EVO is 1% faster -

That's cheaper than the listed used ones. Absolute bargain if it's legit.

I have had HDDs fail to write fast enough when recording over 30 tracks 
simultaneously. Never an issue with SSD.
