About this product


Product overview

• 1TB internal solid state drive (SSD)
• 2.5-inch SATA III 6 GB/s connection with a read speed of 550MB/s and a write speed of 520MB/s for a rapid data transfer and quick start up speed
• 98,000 input/output per second (IOPS)
• Perfect for use in laptops and notebooks to replace your existing hard drive with a bigger, faster and quieter version
• V-NAND technology giving you a higher performance out of your SSD

What makes this different from the 850 EVO?
The 850 Pro is more efficient, as it has a faster sequential read/write speed and a larger amount of IOPS. This means you can get a greater performance out of your SSD and enjoy your computer’s newfound speed.

What performance can I expect from this drive?
This solid state drive has a capacity of 1TB, which will allow you to store up to 1,000 hours of digital video, 250 two-hour DVD films, 32,000 digital photos or 16,000 hours of digital music. With a read speed of 550MB/s and a write speed of 520MB/s, you are able to start your computer up quicker, as well as being able to load your files in an instant.

How will a V-NAND drive help me?
V-NAND technology is a step above other SSDs. Instead of making the cells smaller to squeeze more in, it stacks them on top of each other. Silicon nitride layers also aid in preventing corruption caused by cell to cell interference, providing up to twice the average life span of other SSDs.
V-NAND technology not only lasts longer, but it uses up to 45% less power and delivers writing speeds of up to two times faster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High expectations... I bought this to replace a 9mth old SanDisk SSD which started to show signs of failure after 6 months - reading around it seems that Samsung is the goto SSD manufacturer and the price for the PRO version over the EVO made this purchase a no brainer (plus the 10yr warranty)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an Incredible Drive This Samsung 850 SSD has been unbelievably reliable, and extremely fast. In my life I have never had a Microsoft Windows Speed Index Score in the area of 7.9, ever. and since loading my desktop two years ago Its never been so reliable. Not a hickup.
