Samsung 850 Pro overview

  • 1Description

The 2TB 2.5" SSD 850 Pro from Samsung is an internal drive that offers storage space for Windows and Mac systems. This SSD features 32 layer 3D V-NAND technology that offers twice the speed and density of traditional SSDs. This feature provides up to 100K IOPS random read speed and 90K random write speeds. Sequential read and writes are up to 550 MB/s and 520 MB/s. This SSD can also offer higher speeds by enabling RAPID mode. Besides offering performance, the SSD 850 Pro uses 50% less power than traditional hard drives and supports device sleep mode that uses only 2mW.

V-NAND Technology
Flash memory is stacked to 32 cell layers, on top of one another, to offer higher density and higher performance within a smaller footprint. The result is higher read and write performance in both sequential and random speeds
RAPID Mode
Magician software offers the option to enhance performance by using the computer systems DRAM memory as a cache. Enabling RAPID mode can double the read and write performance
Reliable
V-NAND technology was designed to handle a 40GB day workload, which after ten years equates to 150 Terabytes written.
Power Management
When compared to DDR2 or DDR3 cache memory used in other SSD drives, this drive uses LPDDR2 cache memory that offers higher performance while using 30 percent less power when active and 93 percent less power when idle
Encryption
Includes hardware AES-256-bit encryption that secures your data without the lost of performance when compared to software-base encryption. All 850 Pro SSDs are enabled with SED technology that keeps your data safe even if you lose your computer. Complies also with the TCG Opal v2.0 standards, PSID, and is compatible with IEEE 1667 protocol. You can also erase or initialize date using crypto erase service
Dynamic Thermal Guard Protection
Monitors and maintains the drive's temperature by cutting back the write performance to reduce power consumption that generates heat until the drive reaches back to a safer temperature
One-stop Install Navigator Software
Toolkit that includes an auto install guide that is a simple three-step installation process that copies all the data from your SSD or hard drive to the 850 Pro. Magician software is also available through the One-stop Install Navigator software that offers benchmarking, OS optimization, disk health status tracking and over-provisioning settings

    Samsung 850 Pro reviews

    2TB 850 PRO Series SATA 2.5" SSD is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 134.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, easy and reliable I debated going with the non-pro version, but decided that since this was going to be my workhorse SSD drive for storing my photos, I'd get the pro version. I have the nMacPro late 2013, with a 1TB SSD that works well for the operating system, with plenty of room and speed to be used as a Lightroom scratch disk. The 2TB SSD installed easily into a Thunderbolt2 Mini casing. Now I can easily move this SSD as needed to make further backups or transfers to other computers. Although it's a tad expensive, the convenience and speed and reliability are well worth it. Bart Carrig, photographer

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Scratch Disk - Can't Wait for C-Box Support! I carry this drive with me everywhere, and use it between my desktop and my laptop with a direct Sata to USB 3.0 adapter. It's my mobile rapid file dump, small project management, and super speedy throughput drive. Moving RAW video from my Blackmagic URSA directly onto this thing and editing directly from it and exporting final product for client couldn't be easier! Once the C-Box System guys get a power adapter that supports these, I'm going go buy a 2nd one and use them as my main recording media for the my URSA. It is expensive, but the performance-to-price-per-gigabyte ratio(s) cannot be beat!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drive is fantastic! Although the migration software did not install on my first attempt, it did on the second and then went very smooth. I installed it on 12/08/2015 and so far everything is perfect. The only glitch was that I had to reactivate my Windows Product ID which also went smoothly. THIS DRIVE IS A SCREAMER!!! When I booted my laptop with the HDD, I could go have lunch, brush my teeth and take a nap in the time it took to boot up and shut down. This drive is well worth the money and I would highly recommend to anyone to purchase and install this drive. This is my first SSD and I can't compare it to other SSD(s), only my old HDD. Go for it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from From 840 Pro to 850 Pro My 840 pro was getting long in the tooth, and I was in need of more storage so I decided to upgrade to the the 850 pro. The 840 pro performed flawlessly for three years on my daily driver and now inhabits my PFSense router running 24/7, and it has not skipped a beat. Naturally after this experience I expect the same from the 850 pro, and so far it has met and exceeded my expectations. Samsung SSDs are simply the best in the industry and their reliability in my experience is unparalleled. I look forward to getting the same excellent performance with my new purchase. I always recommend Samsung SSD products because I know I wont be getting any surprise phone calls.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and Smooth This drive was a breeze to install windows 10 64 bit professional on it without any troubles. everything runs faster do not settle for the basic get the Pro! You get a 10 year warranty and there is a different in speed, do not let your local shop tell you that higher quality Drives don't make any difference because I have bench tested both and the Pro exceeded my expectations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from user error Do not listen to the people that have problems with this ssd it is very good and works flawlessly for the people having problems it's most likely user error and people that don't know much about the computer world windows 8 is a good op but is far from perfect and has a lot of issues with compatibility with other devices and as far as a partition disappearing I'm sorry I've never had this happen and I do this alot so I'm sorry to say that's user error my friends

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samsung 850 Pro MZ-7KE512 512GB I just installed this SSD on a Toshiba Satellite S55-A5389 replacing the standard 500GB SATA 5400 RPM drive. It's like a different computer. Fast, fast, fast. This is the way computing should be. Only complaint is it came out of the box with software that did not cover Windows 10 but did not automatically check for an update. This was confusing for a short while as the packaging did not indicate what it covered. After checking the Samsung web site I found the Win 10 version. Other that that it was a snap to clone and migrate. My laptop now flies like I've never seen it before. It's fun again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Way to Modernize Your Laptop! I purchased a laptop that had all of the specs that I was looking for with the exception of the 5400RPM HDD. I immediately began searching for a SSD to upgrade. I was reluctant to purchase this because it was priced slightly higher than the competition, however I am glad I did. The performance is amazing! The included software is excellent! I am very happy with my new laptop with this thing installed. The icing on the cake is Samsung's 10-year warranty. I would highly recommend this one over the competition.
