Samsung 850 Pro 2TB review

 

First to the 2TB barrier, but at what cost?

Huge capacity ; Fast for a SATA drive ; Mega 10 year warranty

Insanely expensive ; Outpaced by M.2 drives ; Limited appeal outside of laptops

Samsung's latest SSD puts an end to solid-state capacity limitations, but at a price both in terms of money and performance.

Samsung 850 Pro 512GB review

 

Samsung's new flagship SSD is simply superb

High IOPS rating ; Superb overall performance ; Improved endurance ; Slick Magician software ; Ten-year warranty

Not cheap

The 850 Pro is a brilliant SSD and deserves an unequivocal recommendation. Anyone building a high-end PC should consider the 850 Pro as their SSD of choice. In professional media-editing environments in particular, which will involve vast amounts of...

Samsung 850 Pro 2TB

 

Samsung's 850 Pro represents the pinnacle of the performance SSD market, but its position at the top of the heap is under threat: cheaper drives are offering decent performance for less cash, and new form factors such as PCI Express and M.2 are pushing...

Huge, hard disk-style capacity ; Excellent performance levels ; Lengthy warranty and endurance

No quicker than 850 Evo 2TB ; Pricier than 850 Evo 2TB ; No extras included

The Samsung 850 Pro combines impressive performance levels with the market’s best endurance rating and warranty. But if you don't require that level of protection, then the 2TB 850 Evo offers equivalent performance for less.

Samsung 850 PRO 1 TB review

 

Samsung 850 PRO 1 TB review. Samsung 850 PRO 1 TB benchmarks

The Samsung 850 PRO arrived just too late for last year's round-up of the best SSDs, but even a year down the line it still has little serious competition in the stakes for the world's best SATA SSD. It may be left for dust by more modern PCIe drives...

Samsung 850 Pro 512GB

 

An SSD crammed with innovation. Does it deliver in benchmarks?

Stonking benchmark results ; Generous warranty ; Great endurance rating

Relatively high price ; No extras included

Samsung’s drive impresses with an endurance rating of 150TB. That’s superb: other high-end drives, such as Intel’s 730 Series and the SanDisk Extreme Pro aren’t rated only for beyond 100TB.

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 - 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 1TB SSD Review (12)

 

Silky smooth operation as a system drive., Outstanding sequential reading and writing performance, even at very low queue depths., Outstanding 4K random writing performance, at low queue depths., Outstanding 4k random reading performance at very low,...

Nothing to mention.

As an operating system drive, the Samsung 850 Pro 1000GB SSD is pretty hard to fault. Performance is outstanding and the SSD proved to be very stable during the testing period. The new 3D V-NAND is a huge step in the right direction in my opinion....
