128GB Samsung 850 PRO SSD

3D V-NAND Flash Memory

Samsung's unique and innovative 3D V-NAND flash memory architecture is a breakthrough in overcoming the density limitations, performance and endurance of today's conventional planar NAND architecture. 3D V-NAND stacks 32 cell layers vertically over one another rather than decreasing cell dimensions and trying to fit itself onto a fixed horizontal space. As a result, the technology provides higher density and better performance utilizing a smaller footprint. The NAND flash memory delivers the ultimate in read and write performance in both sequential and random aspects. This is especially impressive in the 128GB model that outperforms similar models on the market by more than 80 MB/s in write speed.


Rapid Mode

Maximise Your Everyday Computing

On the full range of the 850 PRO you can ramp up the read / write performance using the RAPID MODE. Magician software lets you enhance the performance by processing data on a system level using free PC memory (DRAM) as a cache, providing 1.8x faster performance in the RAPID MODE.


Improved Energy Efficiency

Compute Longer with Improved Energy Efficiency

The 850 PRO allows you to work more productively and work harder due to the very efficient, power management components, the 850 PRO 128GB SSD boasts the lowest power consumption of any SSD in full use due to it expending less energy while it maintains market-leading performance. In addition the 850 PRO SSD has LPDDR2 cache memory which provides higher performance while using 30% less power when active and 93% less power when idle than the typical DDR2 or DDR3 memory.

Secure Data - AES 256 Encryption

Secure Valuable Data Using AES 256 Encryption

The 850 PRO SSD protects your PC’s hardware and personal data, the drive includes AES-256-bit hardware-based, full disk encryption engine that secures your data without performance being compromised, that is often the case with software-based encryption. The advanced security in the 850 PRO complies with the TCG™ opal v2.0 standards, protectiong PSID and is also compatible with the Microsoft eDrive IEEE 1667 protocol. Also, you can use the crypto erase service to erase or initialise data.

10 Year Warranty

Guaranteed Endurance and Reliability

The Samsung 850 PRO SSD has twice the endurance of the previous 840 PRO and will keep working as long as you do. Samsung’s V-NAND Technology is built to handle 300 Terabytes Written (TBW) which equates to a 40 GB daily read/write workload over a 10- year period. Plus, it comes with the industry’s top-level limited warranty.

Dynamic Thermal Guard

Protected from Overheating - Dynamic Thermal Guard

Dynamic Thermal Guard protection is included on all 850 PRO SSD’s, it keeps your PC performance safe from overheating, and also monitors and maintains the drive’s optimal operating temperature with a throttle feature that automatically drops the SSD’s temperature where it is necessary to protect your data and ensure the responsiveness you expect.


Level up to the 850 EVO simply without any hassle

Using its One Stop Install Navigator Software, you can migrate all the data and applications from your SSD or HDD to the 850 PRO quickly and easily. The Auto Install guide navigates through the simple three-step process. Plus, you can conveniently monitor, manage and maintain your 850 PRO with the Samsung Magician Software, it features tools to help you maximize performance, including benchmarking, advanced OS optimization, disk health status tracking & over-provisioning (OP) settings.

Top-Quality Components

In-house solution consisting of top-quality components

Samsung is one of the few manufacturers that actually design all the SSD components in-house and has the most experience in the SSD market. Because Samsung has intimate knowledge of every component and its parts, it can fine-tune them at each stage of development to ensure they work together beautifully. The result - enhanced performance, lower power consumption with an up to 1 GB LPDDR2 DRAM cache memory and improved energy-efficiency with the 3-core MEX controller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast and Relaible - definately a recommendation No problems at all with this drive - all that I expected. As a side note, Samsung Magician reported that my previous drive - a model 840 - was failing, so I upgraded to this 850. And guess what? Samsung Magician reports this as failing as well! Both drives have since been tested with another utility, and they are both fine! Moral - don't trust Samsung Magician - it seems to have problems with Windows 10. That aside, the drives are fine and I can thoroughly recommend both the 840 (not the Evo - never tried it) and the 850. If you are upgrading from a Meccano-drive, you'll be blown away at the difference. 11 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Using drive for OS - Working great Fast SSD that I am using for my operating system only, and at a great price. 02 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Always from Scan Always buy from Scan. The products are always good. The prices are always fair. The delivery is always fast. Why go anywhere else? 02 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another good SSD from Samsung. Really fast and reliable SSD, speeds are good and only took a few minutes to install windows and drivers. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a fast and reliable SSD 09 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Using as an OS drive and it's absolutely perfect. I really don't have a bad thing to say about this. When I write a review I usually try to think off the negatives beforehand, so I can advise people about it better, but, I just can't, not for this, because genuinely, nothing comes to mind. So, I guess it's time to get onto the review. I have another build I use sometimes which uses an 840Evo for it's OS drive. Whilst the speed difference between the two doesn't sound like much, just watching the two boot up you can instantly tell how much the 850Pro outpaces it, it's really absolutely sublime. The speeds do not reach their full potential out of the box though, so I highly reccomend installing the included Samsung Magician software, which makes it super easy to optimize your drive for the best speed/performance/reliability or you can mix and match to have a perfect blend of the three. It's altogether an amazing and fantastic drive, and after using it any PC without an SSD feels so slow it's unbearable. Highly reccomended. 11 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Massive speed improvement and slight battery life improvement I have bought this mostly for speed improvement, and it really does the difference. instead of 30 seconds my laptop boots in 7 seconds, also from a bit nelow 4 hrs battery time I am getting now 4h30min. I also removed CD drive to insert my old drive in its place, so I have my data there and I can access them (make the disc spinnig) only when I need it, keeping files I am using on the daily basis on the main hard drive. For geeks out there I must add that for better performance I use Ubuntu (XFCE) rather than resources-hungry Windows for typical daily tasks, and I have only this OS on SDD. On old drive I keep WIndows, and instead of traditional dual boot on startup I press F12 to tell BIOS if I want to boot from HDD rather than from default SDD. It is really awesome tweak for anyone who really needs to save some battery and want to have laptop up and running in a matter of seconds. 29 September 2014
