Samsung 850 EVO 500GB review

 

3D stacked memory comes to the mainstream

Speedy performance ; Good-value ; Five-year warranty

Not a huge generational leap ; Definitely consumer-class SSD

Ratings in depth The Samsung 850 EVO is the latest in its affordable line of performance SSDs and shows Samsung's desire to push the solid state game along, even at the lower end of the price/performance stack.

Samsung 850 Evo 2TB

 

Samsung leads the way at the top end of the consumer SSD market thanks to its control of every aspect of the research, design and production of its drives. This advantage was amply demonstrated by its most recent 850-series drives that offer excellent...

Mammoth 2TB capacity ; Almost matches Pro drive for speed

Hugely expensive ; Other SSDs have better warranties ; More speed available elsewhere

The Samsung's 2TB version of the 850 Evo offers superb capacity and it virtually matches the 850 Pro drive for speed. If the better warranty and endurance rating of the Pro are a non-issue for you, then this is the SSD to go for.

Samsung 850 EVO 2TB review

 

If you need loads of storage and multiple disks aren't an option, Samsung's huge 2TB SSD is your only choice right now

Samsung 850 Evo mSATA and m.2

 

Samsung has established itself as among the top choices for SSDs in the desktop and laptop sectors, where its 2.5in Evo and Pro ranges offer among the best performance for any given price.

Provides very high access speeds ; Very good longevity and warranty ; Competitively priced

No PCIe support so won't work in many motherboards

Samsung EVO 850 M.2 review

 

The Samsung EVO 850 M.2 provides incredibly fast storage that's ideal for Ultrabooks

Samsung 850 Evo 250GB

 

Samsung's mid-range 850 Evo blends cutting-edge tech with modest design

Consistent, fast read and write speeds ; Cheaper than 850 Pro ; Decent warranty

850 Pro drive is faster still ; Lesser endurance rating ; No extras included

The 850 Evo mixes cheaper memory with 3D V-NAND technology to strike a keen balance between price and performance, and it makes for an SSD that’s one of the best mid-range drives we’ve ever seen. The faster 850 Pro isn’t much more expensive, though,...

Samsung EVO 850 MSATA review

 

Samsung fills a niche with one of the fastest MSATA SSDs around - the EVO 850 is blisteringly quick

With no tools or software in the box for laptop or Ultrabook users looking to upgrade, the EVO 850 mSATA isn't quite as flexible as we would like, but desktop PC users looking to squeeze in some extra storage will appreicate the impressively fast read...

Samsung 850 Evo review

 

Samsung's 3D V-NAND technology makes the 850 Evo a top performer

The 850 Evo’s large-file write speeds are seriously impressive, making this drive a rival for the Crucial M550. The various disks in both drive ranges are a similar price per gigabyte, but the Crucial drive is a faster drive overall, and so just wins...

Samsung SSD 850 Evo: Big shoes to fill

 

Samsung's popular SSD 840 Evo now has a new successor in the form of the SSD 850 Evo. This new drive uses Samsung's newest 32-layer 3D TLC V-NAND and also the brand new MGX controller. Is it still the mainstream drive to beat? We find out.

Improved performance; TurboWrite cache technology; RAPID mode greatly boosts performance; Samsung Magician utility; Longer 5-year warranty

No accessories; Higher price; Write performance suffers with increasing queue depth

Samsung 850 Evo 250GB review

 

Samsung's mid-range SSD boasts Samsung's latest 3D V-NAND chips, and the price is suprisingly reasonable

Same here - I can only think that those with more specialist storage needs are the ones who buy drives like the 850 Pro. Maybe then, the extra longevity, or performance at higher queue depths, might come into play. For the majority of users I think a...
