    Samsung 860 PRO reviews

    256GB 860 PRO SATA III 2.5" Internal SSD is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samsung makes the best SSDs on the market! What’s not to like when it comes to Samsung SSD’s? I have quite a few, including the 860 EVO, older 840’s and 850’s EVOs and PROs that seem to last forever, as well as the newer NVMe 960 and 970 drives which are easily the fastest drives on the market. Samsung drives always hit or beat the rated speeds in both the excellent Samsung Magician software and in Crystal DiskMark. Samsung’s free data migration/cloning software is second to none as it works every time, and I even use it to keep current boot drive backups using older Samsung drives. If I could save a few dollars on some other brand, I’d still buy the Samsung because of the level of confidence and benefits of owning them vs. other brands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2TB Samsung 860 Pro SSD ( 5 Stars ) Bought this 2TB Samsung 860 Pro SSD to replace my gaming notebooks 1TB Samsung 850 Pro Storage SSD. The 2TB Samsung 860 Pro has only slightly faster, average performance over all then the 1TB Samsung 850 Pro which is hardly noticeable for every day storage use. In fact, the 850 Pro even meets or beats the 860 Pro in some performance test comparisons (see uploaded Screen shots comparing performance test of both SSD's). The Samsung 860 Pro only comes with a 5 year Samsung Warranty vs. 10 years for the Samsung 850 Pro but the 860 Pro has a much higher durability rating. I replaced the 1TB Samsung 850 Pro with the 2TB Samsung 860 Pro b/c it has double the storage capacity but not for any other reasons b/c they're both the two best, fastest SATA III SSD's made in the world today.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in class Most SSDs on market today are either TLC or a combination of TLC+MLC. Samsung Pro is full-MLC which should mean longer life and better reliability. I had 840 Pro for 4+ years running as system disk for my Windows machine without any issue (staying up 24/7), and this should be a good replacement for it (my 840 is still alive, I just re-purposed it for less critical use).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent SSD I installed this SSD in a Dell Precision M6400 laptop as the primary drive and it worked perfectly.
