Samsung SSD 850 Evo 2TB

Verdict: Today we have the latest model from the Samsung SSD 850 Evo on hand, the mouth-watering 2TB model. Previously the 850 Evo range extended to a 1TB model but for those that find that simply wasn't enough, Samsung has doubled the capacity and in the process created what is by far the largest capacity...

Samsung 850 EVO M.2 and mSATA SSD review

 
4.9
Verdict: Honestly I was not expecting mSATA to perform as well as it did. Very impressive. That goes for both form factors, albeit the 120GB version of the M.2 form factor based SSD was disappointing in write performance.

Verdict: launched and brought Samsung's 3D V-NAND technology to a lower price point. They're great SSDs, though we maintain that their benefits will be hard to communicate to the people the EVO range was initially designed for.

Samsung SSD 850 EVO Review (mSATA and M.2 500GB)

Verdict: The appeal for mobile device or small PC format owners is obvious, both formats offer high capacity, desktop like performance, encryption and low power consumption. The whole package is backed by a 5 years limited warranty. Who say one can not have the cake and eat it too?

The Samsung SSD 850 EVO mSATA/M.2 Review

Verdict: 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 the SATA protocols.

Samsung 850 EVO mSATA & M.2 SSD Review

Pros: Fast, Even FASTER! Magician Software
Cons: none
Verdict: Many moons ago there was an article based on solid state memory and how it would change everything we do, if they could get it to work correctly. Many were amazed at the thought of drives having no moving parts, a major reduction in size and energy consumption.

Samsung 850 EVO M.2 SATA SSD Review

Verdict: The M.2 socket first appeared a couple of years ago and the market has been slow to take it up in force. Whether, like Thunderbolt, this is because there is already a huge market for regular devices, or whether storage manufacturers are waiting to see which of the two variants will be the winner -...

Verdict: Samsung is introducing a number of new members to their SSD 850 EVO line-up of Solid State Drives, based on different form factors than the standard 2.5" drives . The brand new mSATA and M.2 Samsung SSD 850 EVO drives being announced today, however, leverage all of the same technology.

Samsung 850 Evo SSD: Australian Review

 
4.0
Pros: Excellent performance, Great warranty conditions, Great bundled Magician software
Cons: More expensive than competitors, Competition also from cheaper high-end drives, Magician only on Windows
Verdict: Sometimes, even if you're only spending a small amount of money, it's worth shelling out that little bit more and getting yourself a superior piece of technology. That edict is very much true when it comes to getting a new solid state drive for your PC, actually.

Samsung EVO 850 M.2 review

Samsung's EVO 850 M.2 is one of the first consumer-friendly M.2 SSDs we've seen; it's essentially a regular EVO 850 SSD squeezed onto a circuit board the size of a...

Samsung SSD 850 Evo ( 1TB)

 
4.5
Pros: The Samsung SSD 850 Evo delivers great performance and a nice set of features, all at an affordable price
Cons: The new SSD doesn't have the 10-year warranty that the Pro model offers, and its Samsung Magician software works only with Windows
Verdict: If you've been eyeing the Samsung SSD 850 Pro but can't quite afford it, the 850 Evo is an excellent alternative, if not a better choice. Though officially an upgrade to the Samsung SSD 840 Evo, the new drive is more like the higher-end 850 Pro.

Samsung 850 EVO Review

Pros: + RAPID Technology, + 3D V-NAND, + 5 year warranty, + 6.8mm Height
Verdict: When we sampled the previous generation 840 EVO from SAMSUNG we were very impressed. It was reasonably priced, had good encryption qualities and in stock format was also a very fast drive. Add RAPID technology and the drive became a performance beast.

Samsung 850 EVO 500GB review

 
4.5
Pros: Speedy performance, Good-value, Five-year warranty, The overall performance of the Samsung 850 EVO 500GB is impressive, but not exactly earth-shatteringly different compared with the previous generation of affordable EVO drives.
Cons: Not a huge generational leap, Definitely consumer-class SSD, As we've said, it's not massively different in terms of performance. It's also not enough quicker than the 512GB Crucial MX100 to really separate it from the cheaper competition at that capacity.
Verdict: The fastest mainstream SSD around, just not necessarily one to shake the solid state world.

A very good external drive. It gets very hot during sustained writing loads.

Very fast drive

 
4.0
Verdict: I just purchased the Samsung 850 Evo in a z270e Strix motherboard. It was an ease to install once I realized this takes a SATA port away from motherboard. So you will have to move your primary hard drive if its using the first port. This threw me off guard as my primary dive disappeared.

A GREAT mSATA (5 YEAR Warranty)

 
4.0
Verdict: My laptop had a 120GB mSATA, which was an upgrade and working fine. However, when I saw the price for this 250GB mSATA with a "5 YEAR" warranty, it just made logical sense to upgrade my laptop with this new SAMSUNG mSATA. My mSATA port is a SATA 3.0 port and this SAMSUNG mSATA is a speed demon.

Verdict: This is my first M.2 ssd and I like it. I bought a Startech USB 3.0 adapter in order to clone a 128 GB M.2 ssd to this one. The drive is keyed as "B and M" and you want to make sure that your motherboard accepts it.
