Samsung SSD 850 Pro review:

 

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

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.

So has Samsung delivered the fastest SATA SSD? Our results seem to suggest so. The only noteworthy SSD missing from our line-up is the new

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?

Samsung 850 Pro SSD review - 3D V-NAND is here

 

The 850 Pro's large file performance is blisteringly fast, but its small file performance is relatively disappointing

The Samsung 850 Pro is a cracking SSD, but you pay a high price for its incredible performance. The 256GB model costs £140 or 55p per gigabyte. The 512GB

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

The 128GB version of the 850 Pro, due to its smaller amount of onboard RAM, fewer NAND packages and less over-provisioning, is the slowest of the lot in testing, only cracking 470MBps write speeds instead of the 520MBps of the 256GB and above drives....

I think I'll grab two of the 1-TB versions for my gaming laptop and stripe them so they're twice as fast. :D
