Samsung SSD 860 QVO

 

Thanks in part to the latest flash-memory technology, the Samsung SSD 860 QVO offers a lot of fast storage capacity for minimal money. It's a winning internal solid-state drive for budget-minded upgraders.

Very affordable on a cost-per-gigabyte basis. Comes in 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB capacities. Supports hardware encryption. Excellent reliability ratings.

Samsung 860 QVO

 

As SATA SSDs go the Samsung 860 QVO is a fine, but hardly revolutionary design. It might sport new 4-bit NAND memory modules, but the performance and price combination won't be turning any heads.
