Samsung 850 Evo overview

  • 1Description

Access your data quickly and efficiently with the 1TB 850 Evo 2.5" SATA III SSD from Samsung. This 1TB solid state drive features sequential read speeds of up to 540 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 520 MB/s allowing for the rapid transfer of large files. The integrated SATA 6 Gb/s interface makes installation quick and easy while remaining backwards compatible with SATA II 3 Gb/s and SATA 1.5 Gb/s interfaces. This Samsung SSD even comes with 1GB of low power DDR2 SDRAM used as cache memory to enhance processing speeds.

With a 2.5" form factor, this solid state drive is designed to be used in a variety of notebook and desktop computers. The reduced size is achieved through the use of Samsung's 3D V-NAND flash memory as each of the 32 cell layers are stacked vertically rather than horizontally. Samsung also implements their own TurboWrite technology to deliver enhanced sequential read and write speeds while Rapid Mode software utilizes the integrated cache (DRAM) memory to improve processing speeds. Insert this solid state drive into nearly any notebook computer and you benefit from improved battery life with the enhanced SSD controller allowing the drive to sleep at an efficient 2 mW.

3D V-NAND Technology
Samsung's 3D V-NAND flash memory helps to overcome the limitations of conventional planar NAND architecture. It stacks 32 cell layers vertically over one another rather than trying to fit itself onto a fixed horizontal space, in order to provide high density and performance with a small footprint.
TurboWrite Technology
Samsung's TurboWrite technology helps to maximize your computing ability. The 850 EVO delivers exceptionally high performance in sequential read and write speeds, as well as optimized random performance for high-end computing on client PCs.
Rapid Mode
Samsung's Magician software provides a Rapid Mode for fast processing speeds on a system level by utilizing unused PC memory (DRAM) as cache storage, as well as high performance at various random queue depths.
Long Lasting and Energy Efficient
Enjoy long battery life on your notebook to maximize productivity, thanks to a controller optimized for Samsung's 3D V-NAND technology and enabling device sleep at a highly efficient 2mW. The 850 EVO is also highly energy efficient as compared to planar 2D NAND technology.
AES 256-Bit Encryption
Secure data without performance degradation thanks to AES 256-bit encryption that is compliant with TCG Opal 2.0. The 850 EVO is also compatible with Microsoft e-drive IEEE1667 for extra protection to help secure your peace of mind.
Dynamic Thermal Guard
This constantly monitors and works to maintain ideal temperatures to protect the integrity of your data and safeguard from overheating. When temperatures rise above an optimal threshold, the Dynamic Thermal Guard automatically throttles them down to protect data while maintaining responsiveness.
One-Stop Install Navigator
With One-Stop Install Navigator software you can migrate all of the data and applications from your existing primary storage to the 850 EVO in three simple steps. The Samsung Magician software also allows you to optimize and manage your system in a manner that is best suited for the SSD.
Samsung Components
The 850 EVO is built from Samsung Components that are designed and manufactured in-house to allow complete optimized integration. This means high performance, low power consumption with an up to 1 GB LPDDR2 DRAM cache memory and excellent energy-efficiency with the MEX/MGX controller.

    Samsung 850 Evo reviews

    1TB 850 Evo 2.5" SATA III SSD is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 693.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Life for an Old PC I have a 6 year old Intel i7-based PC which is performing flawlessly. But I was afraid that my hard drive would fail after such a long time. So I replaced it with this SSD beauty even though I only have a SATA II controller. Incredible improvement in boot time and general program performance, especially Lightroom. The installation process was incredibly easy. Rather than buy a USB to SATA cable, I just plugged this one directly into the second SATA port on my motherboard and did the image transfer there. It took a little over 2 hours to tranfer 500GB. Then I unplugged the old HD, plugged the new SSD into port 1 and was up and running. It was so easy. And I'm no computer expert. Love the hardware and the software.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade Upgraded Mac with this SSD from 7200rpm 750GB for additional storage and performance boost. It was stunning how much of a bottle neck even 7200rpm was. Not fully 5 stars and contemplated 3 since Samsung doesn't fully support Mac (no management tools available). HW is fully compatible although their support is light on whether nor not the 850 Evo offers native garbage collection. It does support TRIM which I've enabled via forcetrim on Yosemite and El Capitan. Still performance is solid and it's a good value (when on sale). I'm still cautiously testing to ensure it'll maintain performance levels while running the new TRIM enable tool native to OS X.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best upgrade Used on a dual core laptop with Windows 10. OEM drive made the computer run very slow. Watching videos was choppy and accessing data and internet was disappointing. Cloning the PC drive to the Samsung SSD was extremely easy and fast. Instead of wanting to buy a new Laptop, the price of the SSD compared to a new computer with a faster CPU is no longer a consideration. I have upgraded all of my desktops to Samsung SSD. Even the fastest Corei7 gets dramatic performance improvement. Creating DVDs in half the time, editing video quicker. Now when GIGABIT internet speed becomes available, I wont need the expensive "cable TV".

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samsung SSD 850 EVO I did a lot of research before purchasing this drive. Industry leading 5 year warranty and 150TB Write were just 2 of the many pluses that I used for my purchase decision. You may wish to read the Tech Report: The SSD Endurance Experiment: They're all dead. Using the data cloning software that came with the drive was easy. After cloning the drive it booted without any issues. Using Samsung Magician is easy as well. I did have to turn on over provisioning but that was just a couple of clicks. I like the fact that I am able to boot and use windows in approximately 40 seconds vs the 3.5 to 4 minutes it was taking on my 7200RPM drive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal and Fast 1. Experience - WOW!!!!! The boot time with all my startup software runs about five times faster with this SSD compared to my old HDD, and that means I don't have to wait as long to start using my PC. 2. Experience - Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!! My antivirus scan used to take 90 minutes with my old HDD. It now completes in just 12 minutes with this SSD. 3. Advice - Use the Samsung Data Migration software to clone your HDD over to this SSD. It works great and you don't need anything else. 4. Advice - Tweak this SSD using the Samsung Magician software for better performance based on the way you want to use the drive in the future.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from BEWARE This product stopped working on me less than a year after purchase. The warranty is five years but reaching a Samsung representative for help, or finding a service request on their website, or even registering this very product on their website is IMPOSSIBLE. I will never ever buy another Samsung product again. This has been such an awful experience. I spent $$on this... Buy something else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal SSD! This is my third Samsung EVO 850 SSD I've purchased and I have yet to be disappointed. Please, go out and spend hours researching the blogs and reviews and I'm positive you will find the same as I found. Samsung is the undisputed best SSD manufacturer. I've also found the Samsung Migration software to be flawless and has worked with no complications every time. In addition, the Samsung Magician software is a great program to monitor your SSD as well as make and verify your SSD settings. Samsung also has the best SSD warranty in the market at five years. Ad me as a satisfied customer and very happy with the performance of all my SSD's!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, Fast After a quick review of online reviews this drive stood out as the best drive for the cost. It is FAST and the included drive copy software made migrating my bosses HD over quick and painless. She has some very specialized phone system software on her system that if we have to get installed and set-up costs several hundred dollars and we did not have to do that. I have to say I was surprised at the weight of the drive we replaced, I had never really noticed how heavy 2.5" drives actually are until I compared it with the paper light weight of this drive. So another nice bonus besides the speed increase of the laptop we put it in was a noticeable reduction in its weight as well.
