Samsung SSD 850 EVO (4TB)

 

The Samsung SSD 850 EVO is an internal solid-state drive that combines speed with massive capacity, but it will cost you a pretty penny.

Lots of storage. Excellent performance. Reasonable cost on per-gigabyte basis.

Very expensive overall. Not as fast as last generation in certain cases.

Samsung SSD 850 Evo review: Top performance for a low price

 

Samsung today announced the 2TB capacity of its popular solid-state drive (SSD), the 850 Evo, making it one of the top SSDs on the market with the best combination of performance, features, capacity and price. Here's CNET's full review.

The Samsung SSD 850 Evo delivers great performance with useful features, at an affordable price. The drive is available with up to 2TB of storage space.

The drive carries a 5-year warranty instead of the 10 years the Pro model offers. The Samsung Magician software only works with Windows.

The Samsung 850 Evo has the best combination of performance, cost and capacity, making it the ideal drive for any home user.

Samsung SSD 850 EVO (500GB)

 

The Samsung SSD 850 EVO offers the same sort of class-leading performance of Samsung's SSD 850 Pro drive, along with impressive management software and a lengthy five-year warranty.

Very fast performance on a SATA-connected solid-state drive (SSD). Generous five-year warranty. Available in capacities up to 1TB.

A little pricey.

Samsung SSD 850 Pro (1TB)

 

The Samsung SSD 850 Pro should be at the top of your list if you're looking for a speedy and reliable SSD for home use. Just make sure your wallet is ready to become a lot lighter.

1TB capacity. 500MBps+ read and write speeds. 10-year warranty.

Expensive.

The Samsung SSD 850 120GB Review: A Little TLC for SATA

 

The latest entry level SSD from Samsung has no suffix and bears neither the PRO or EVO appellation. It is a new entry-level SATA SSD featuring Samsung's latest 64-layer 3D TLC NAND, making it a very close relative to the 850 EVO line.

If Samsung wanted to brand the 850 120GB as a full member of the 850 EVO family, it would be worthy. We can't really expect any better performance from a drive this size, and Samsung can probably afford to extend the warranty to match the 5 years...

The Samsung 850 EVO 4TB SSD Review

 

In 2014 Samsung brought 3D NAND (branded as V-NAND) to the consumer SSD market with the 850 Pro and 850 EVO SATA SSDs. Based on the MLC and TLC versions respectively of Samsung's 32-layer second-generation V-NAND process, both models raised the bar for...

The performance of the 4TB 850 EVO also makes it clear that there is even less need for a 4TB 850 Pro. An MLC counterpart simply isn't needed to reach the highest speeds that can be expected of a SATA drive, because 3D TLC drive done right and in such...

The Samsung SSD 850 EVO mSATA/M.2 Review

 

The move isn't really surprising because Samsung released an mSATA version of the SSD 840 EVO a bit over a year ago and when the 850 EVO was originally launched we were told that mSATA and M.2 models would follow later. The addition of M.2 is new to...

From a technological perspective, the new 850 EVO drives do not bring anything new to the table since it's essentially the 2.5" 850 EVO in a smaller form factor, but what it does bring to the market is more selection in mSATA and M.2 form factors using...

Samsung SSD 850 EVO (120GB, 250GB, 500GB & 1TB) Review

 

Samsung hasn't stopped impressing me in the SSD space. The early Samsung SSDs weren't very good, but ever since the introduction of the SSD 830 Samsung has been doing a brilliant job and has been setting the bar for performance, cost and reliability....

There is still hope that the MSRPs are just conservative and street prices could end up lower. If they don't, while the 850 EVO is clearly the best performing "value" drive, it likely won't see the same sort of success as its predecessor. Samsung also...
