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 the best performance, with ultra-high endurance. The drive comes with a lot of useful features, such as encryption, and RAPID mode.

Samsung 850 Pro SSD: Australian Review

 

Buying an SSD can massively increase the speed of your PC, improving boot times, program loading speed and slashing power consumption. But what makes one solid-state drive different to another? All the changes you can't see. Samsung's new 850 Pro makes...

Incredibly fast transfers ; Build quality ; Low power consumption

Comparatively slow 128GB version ; Strong mid-range competitors ; Expensive price, especially for 512GB
