Samsung SSD 980 Review

 

Edges out the Intel SSD 670p in 4K random reads ; Competitive pricing for its performance class ; Field-leading SSD software suite ; Good durability rating for MLC ; Five-year warranty

Still capped at PCI Express 3.0's natural ceiling

Samsung's SSD 980 M.2 drive provides a stellar mid-tier option for new or returning fans of the company's SSDs, squeaking the most performance possible out of PCI Express 3.0 in 2021.

Samsung SSD 870 QVO Review

 

Excellent price-to-performance ratio for a SATA-based SSD ; Very fast 4K read and write speeds ; Feature-rich Magician management software ; 8TB version coming soon

Warranty is only three years ; QLC's modest durability ratings make it less suited to heavy write duty

If you're looking for one of the best 2.5-inch SATA SSDs in terms of value and performance for the money, search no further than Samsung's SSD 870 QVO, a stellar followup to its first QLC-based outing.

Samsung SSD 850 Pro review: Top-notch solid-state drive for a premium price

 

The Samsung SSD 850 Pro is the first solid-state drive on the market that uses the new 3D, vertical NAND flash memory to offer ultra-high endurance, top performance, a great set of features and the all-new 2TB capacity.

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.
