Samsung SSD 870 EVO Review


Record-setting 4K results for SATA drives ; Strong write-durability rating ; Samsung Magician is the gold standard of SSD management software

Samsung 870 EVO SSD Review

Excellent overall product ; Checks all the boxes you want ; The best SATA SSD we've looked at

The Samsung 870 EVO is an excellent SATA SSD Drive that displaces the Samsung 860 EVO and pretty much cements Samsung’s dominance in that segment until something better comes along.
