Samsung SSD 850 Pro (128GB)

 

There are plenty of reasons to be excited about the Samsung SSD 850 Pro.

The Samsung SSD 850 Pro has fast performance, high endurance -- you can write a lot of data to it before it becomes unreliable -- and its 2TB capacity is the highest on the market. The drive comes with a lot of useful features, including encryption,...

The drive is expensive compared with competing solid-state drives. The Samsung Magician software only works with Windows.

The Samsung SSD 850 Pro is one of the best standard consumer-grade solid-state drives on the market, but there are cheaper alternatives with similar performance.

Samsung 850 Pro SSD Review

 

The 840 Pro was one of the most successful high-end SSD series over the past few years, and now it's time for an update. Samsung's 850 Pro SSD is powered by the company's cutting-edge in-house 32 layer 3D V-NAND technology, which is said to deliver up...

Samsung says the 850 Pro is the fastest, most reliable SATA SSD available and we'll buy that line until we test the SanDisk Extreme Pro or experience a failure.

It certainly isn't the best value considering its premium over the Extreme Pro and availability of drives like the Crucial MX100. RAPID isn't as useful as you may think.

Samsung 850 Pro SSD Review: 3D Vertical NAND Hits Desktop Storage

 

After winning an award last year for its 840 EVO, Samsung is ready to follow up with another high-end offering. The company's 850 Pro SSD merges the EVO's familiar MEX controller with 3D V-NAND. Does the combination justify an upgrade, or should you wait?
