Samsung 850 PRO 1TB review

 
4.5
Verdict: 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.

Samsung 850 Pro Review

 
4.5
Pros: Super fast; 10-year warranty; slick software that could be a stand-alone product
Cons: Quite expensive for what you're getting; warranty is overkill
Verdict: Samsung has built a good reputation for fast and high-quality SSDs. It introduced the 470 to desktops four years ago, and its SSDs were in high-end laptops before that. The company also distinguished itself by designing its own controller chips and manufacturing its own NAND flash memory.

Samsung 850 Pro 512GB Full Review - NAND Goes 3D!

Verdict: I wasn't kidding earlier. Samsung has so much confidence in the increased endurance of their V-NAND that they've upped the warranty to 10-years, rated at 40GB of writes per day, which equates to 150TB of total writes.

Verdict: We didn't spend a lot of time talking about the 3D V-NAND in this article or RAPID Mode. We just published a very detailed V-NAND whitepaper and RAPID Mode was discussed in detail in our initial reviews . The 850 Pro is a complicated product made easy by its performance.

Samsung 850 Pro 512GB SSD Review

Pros: - Build Quality, - Excellent Overall Performance, - Features (TurboWrite/RAPID Mode/eDrive Support, - Samsung Magician Software, - 10 Year Warranty, - Available In 1TB
Cons: - Price (For Some
Verdict: It may have taken just a tad longer for SATA solid state drives (SSDs) to finally hit the performance wall specified by the SATA III standard but the fact that we are here means that PCIex solutions will soon cease to be the only ones capable for read/write speeds exceeding 1000MB/s and although for...

Samsung 850 PRO 256GB Review

Pros: Extensive software package; Data Migration; Great stock performance; Otherworldly performance with RAPID Mode enabled
Cons: Price premium
Verdict: We've seen many solid state drives over the past few years, some memorable and some forgettable. But it's rather rare to see new technologies emerge that push the boundaries of performance, features, and even pricing.

Samsung 850 Pro SSD review - 3D V-NAND is here

 
4.0
Verdict: The Samsung 850 Pro is the first Samsung SSD to use a new type of NAND flash: 3D V-NAND. Although it's a very complicated technology, 3D V-NAND is potentially very important for the future of SSDs.

Samsung 850 Pro 256GB/512GB/1TB review: back at the top!

Verdict: Samsung recently introduced their 850 Pro SSDs, which are the first consumer-oriented SSDs based on 3D V-NAND. Do they allow Samsung to reclaim the performance crown?

Pros: Outstanding Performance, Support for Microsoft eDrive / TCG Opal, Very high write load specification, Ten-year warranty
Verdict: When it comes to flash memory, Samsung is probably be the biggest innovator. While it's true that Crucial have repeatedly earned our praise (most recently for the featuring 16 nm MLC NAND with a memory density of 256 Gbits per Die), Samsung is known for more radical changes: last year, the Samsung...

Samsung 850 Pro 512GB review

 
5.0
Verdict: The 850 Pro is Samsung's new flagship consumer SSD, and the follow-up to the wildly popular 840 Pro, which was one of the best performing SSDs money could buy when it launched in September 2012. We're reviewing the 512GB model here which is priced at £232 (US$399, around AUD$420).

Samsung 850 PRO 1TB SSD Review (12)

Pros: 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, and very high queue depths, Sustainable writing...
Cons: Nothing to mention
Verdict: Let's first step back a few years, to when SSDs first started to appear. They were very expensive, low capacity affairs. Sequential speeds were faster than HDDs, but not by much. Access times were much faster than HDDs, and of course small file random performance also was, in general, much better...

Samsung SSD 850 Pro (128GB, 256GB & 1TB) Review: Enter the 3D Era

Verdict: Samsung does not cease to amaze me with their SSDs as the 850 Pro just kills it in every aspect. The performance is there. The endurance is the best of the class. Heck, even Samsung's feature and software suites beat the competition by a mile.

Samsung 850 Pro SSD Review – Showing Off With 3D V-NAND

 
4.7
Verdict: Ever since our first discovery of the 470 Series SATA 2 SSD way back in 2010, Samsung has been unstoppable, carving out a new standard with every SSD release. The release of the 850 Pro SSD with 3D V-NAND is a perfect example of just that.

Samsung SSD 850 Pro

Verdict: Today Samsung is unveiling their latest SSD and successor to the mighty 840 Pro. Named the 850 Pro it is not only faster than the 840 Pro and possibly the fastest SATA SSD money can buy, but more importantly it is also one of the most reliable thanks to its use of V-NAND flash memory.

Samsung 850 Pro SSD Review

 
4.2
Pros: Samsung says the 850 Pro is the fastest, most reliable SATA SSD available and we'll buy that line until we test the SanDisk Extreme Pro or experience a failure
Cons: It certainly isn't the best value considering its premium over the Extreme Pro and availability of drives like the Crucial MX100. RAPID isn't as useful as you may think
Verdict: Considering the breakneck one-upsmanship we saw among early SSD makers, record-setting iterations have been slower to arrive over the last two years with 2012's Samsung SSD 840 Pro series maintaining relevance among a laundry list of competing options after price cuts brought it from $1.05 per...

Speed and reliable

 
5.0
Verdict: Replacing a hard drive, use an SSD. Increases your system performance by at least 3 times. The PRO model has a 10 year warranty, nothing else like that. If they are offering that type of warranty, you know they used the good stuff to build it.

Although I hate Samsung, this is about the best SSD available on the market today.

 
5.0
Verdict: This is about the highest rated SSD on the market. Unfortunately, I don't like buying Samsung products, and my family has had very bad luck with Samsung appliances. We won't EVER buy another Samsung washer, dryer, refrigerator, etc. However, Samsung is a leader in SSD research and development.

Verdict: Installed it in a mid-2012 MBP unibody A1278 with macOS sierra update, 16GB RAM, after the factory HDD crashed. Reinstalled Yosemite on the SSD. EtreCheck went from "very poor" to "excellent". MBP boots up very fast.

A Year later.......Perfect!

 
5.0
Pros: Nice Retail packaging, no way this SSD is going to move around in the tightly packed box. Fast as one is going to get in the SATA-3 SSD line 10 year warranty, double that of the 840 Pro. Going strong for a year, having been in three different PC's
Cons: That is's not a NVMe SSD.;-
Verdict: If one cannot afford nor wants to play in the new & growing world of NVMe SSD's, this is top of the line. Only one or two other brands offers a 10 year warranty on the same drive, or 150 TBW written.

A Good Decision for Bulk Fast Storage

 
4.5
Verdict: I bought this SSD for both its quality and storage size. Went in without a hitch and the Samsung software easily copied my two 400GB RAID 0 drives to it flawlessly. Three partitions were copied. Not one hitch. If you want more speed, buy several smaller size 850 EVO Pros and RAID 0 them.

5.0
Verdict: Bought this to refresh my ageing MacBook pro 2011. Decided to reinstall OS from scratch. Plopped it in. Now it is running like new with loads more headroom. No need to go out and buy a new, and expensive, MacBook replacement - hence this drive was a really bargain.

Samsung 850 Pro 512GB SSD Review

 
1.0
Verdict: Samsung's new 850 Pro line of SSDs are easily the fastest on the market at the time of publishing. They offer all the newest features in one single package. Samsung's 3D V-NANA, RAPID Mode, and the huge 150TBW make this drive stand out from the crown.
