Samsung 850 Evo 2TB Review

 

Samsung's 850 Evo offers a great balance of price and performance, and it's available in super-sized 2TB form

Samsung SSD 850 EVO Review (mSATA and M.2 500GB)

 

It did not take long for Samsung to release two new form factors of their EVO series, the mSATA and the M.2. While the mSATA version was expected, the M.2 was a pleasant surprise since that format ...

The appeal for mobile device or small PC format owners is obvious, both formats offer high capacity, desktop like performance, encryption and low power consumption. The whole package is backed by a 5 years limited warranty. Who say one can not have the...

Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250GB Review

 

I consider myself as a mainstream user. My computer needs do not require the latest and the fastest at a premium price. After the release of the 850 PRO line which I reviewed last July, I was eager...

Once again, Samsung delivers a great product, taking the lead in the SSD space with its advanced technology. 3D V-NAND is really a game changer. The 3rd TCL generation offers pretty much everything the consumer would want to see from an SSD,...

The Samsung SSD 850 120GB Review: A Little TLC for SATA

 

The latest entry level SSD from Samsung has no suffix and bears neither the PRO or EVO appellation. It is a new entry-level SATA SSD featuring Samsung's latest 64-layer 3D TLC NAND, making it a very close relative to the 850 EVO line.

If Samsung wanted to brand the 850 120GB as a full member of the 850 EVO family, it would be worthy. We can't really expect any better performance from a drive this size, and Samsung can probably afford to extend the warranty to match the 5 years...

Samsung SSD 850 EVO (4TB)

 

The Samsung SSD 850 EVO is an internal solid-state drive that combines speed with massive capacity, but it will cost you a pretty penny.

Lots of storage. Excellent performance. Reasonable cost on per-gigabyte basis.

Very expensive overall. Not as fast as last generation in certain cases.

The Samsung 850 EVO 4TB SSD Review

 

In 2014 Samsung brought 3D NAND (branded as V-NAND) to the consumer SSD market with the 850 Pro and 850 EVO SATA SSDs. Based on the MLC and TLC versions respectively of Samsung's 32-layer second-generation V-NAND process, both models raised the bar for...

The performance of the 4TB 850 EVO also makes it clear that there is even less need for a 4TB 850 Pro. An MLC counterpart simply isn't needed to reach the highest speeds that can be expected of a SATA drive, because 3D TLC drive done right and in such...

The Samsung SSD 850 EVO mSATA/M.2 Review

 

The move isn't really surprising because Samsung released an mSATA version of the SSD 840 EVO a bit over a year ago and when the 850 EVO was originally launched we were told that mSATA and M.2 models would follow later. The addition of M.2 is new to...

From a technological perspective, the new 850 EVO drives do not bring anything new to the table since it's essentially the 2.5" 850 EVO in a smaller form factor, but what it does bring to the market is more selection in mSATA and M.2 form factors using...

Samsung SSD 850 EVO (500GB)

 

The Samsung SSD 850 EVO offers the same sort of class-leading performance of Samsung's SSD 850 Pro drive, along with impressive management software and a lengthy five-year warranty.

Very fast performance on a SATA-connected solid-state drive (SSD). Generous five-year warranty. Available in capacities up to 1TB.

A little pricey.

Samsung SSD 850 Evo review

 

If you've been eyeing the Samsung SSD 850 Pro but can't quite afford it, the 850 Evo is an excellent alternative. Actually, it may even be the better choice, especially since it's the cheaper of the two, while still achieving fast -- although not...

The Samsung SSD 850 Evo delivers great performance with useful features, at an affordable price. The drive is available with up to 2TB of storage space.

The drive carries a 5-year warranty instead of the 10 years the Pro model offers. The Samsung Magician software only works with Windows.

The Samsung 850 Evo has the best combination of performance, cost and capacity, making it the ideal drive for any home user.

Samsung SSD 850 EVO (120GB, 250GB, 500GB & 1TB) Review

 

Samsung hasn't stopped impressing me in the SSD space. The early Samsung SSDs weren't very good, but ever since the introduction of the SSD 830 Samsung has been doing a brilliant job and has been setting the bar for performance, cost and reliability....

There is still hope that the MSRPs are just conservative and street prices could end up lower. If they don't, while the 850 EVO is clearly the best performing "value" drive, it likely won't see the same sort of success as its predecessor. Samsung also...
