The Samsung 860 EVO 1 TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-76E1T0B/AM) was purchased for my work, together with 2º Synology 4 Bay on the DiskStation DS918 + (Diskless), which I have already spoken here in Skooter Blog.
These purchases involve a complicated accountability, so I couldn't use a redirection service like I always do to pay less taxes. Instead, I made the purchase with shipping to Brazil directly by Amazon, paying all taxes in advance.
Amazon divided the 12 order items 5 packages, I don't know exactly why. The first came in the UPS Express Saver and the other by the I-parcel. I bought with cheap freight, that is AmazonGlobal Standard Shipping.
I'm not a big fan of Samsung, I've had problems with monitor and cell phone brand. I ended up buying the Samsung 860 EVO 1 TB because it is quite recommended and has better cost-benefit ratio that Sandisk SSDs. But I confess that I would buy again, as I found out later that the Samsung apparently does not guarantee in Brazil for those items imported, while Sandisk has an excellent RMA.

I ran some tests with the Crystaldiskinfo and the CrystalDiskMark, but apparently the results were affected by the RAPID Mode from the Samsung Magician. The RAPID Mode is a RAM caching system that uses free RAM as SSD cache.
These are the package tracking information according to the i-parcel:
