Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SSD

250GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD

3D V-NAND Flash Memory

3D V-NAND Flash Memory 3D V-NAND is a unique and innovative flash memory architecture from Samsung, it’s advanced enough to overcome the density limitations, performance and endurance of the conventional NAND architecture. In the 850 EVO 250GB SSD the 32 cell layers are stacked vertically over one another; this allows better performance and higher densities due to the smaller footprint.

TURBOWRITE TECHNOLOGY

TurboWrite

Maximise Your Everyday Computing

Samsung TurboWrite Technology allows you to achieve the ultimate read / write performance that will maximise your everyday computing, this allows the 850 EVO 250GB to obtain 1.9x faster random write speeds. The 850 EVO SSD delivers top of the class performance in sequential read (540 MB/s) and write (520 MB/s) speeds. Plus, in all QD for client PC usage scenario’s you gain optimised random performance.

SAMSUNG 850 EVO - RAPID MODE

Rapid Mode

2x Faster Processing Speeds

Rapid Mode from Samsung provides 2x faster processing data speeds on a system level by utilising unused PC memory usage (DRAM) as cache storage. The maximum memory usage in Rapid Mode has increased from 1 GB, in the 840 EVO version, up to 4 GB in the 850 EVO when using 16GB of DRAM, another advantage is you get 2x the performance in all random queue depth.

850 EVO FEATURES

Improved Energy Efficiency

Compute Longer with Improved Energy Efficiency

The 850 EVO is now 25% more power efficient than the older 840 EVO during write operations thanks to the 3D V-NAND only consuming half the energy than the 2D V-NAND. The Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SSD also delivers longer battery life using a controller optimised for 3D V-NAND now enabling device sleep at a highly efficient 2 mW.

Secure Data - AES 256 Encryption

Secure Valuable Data Using AES 256 Encryption

The 850 EVO comes fortified with the latest hardware-based full disk encryption engine. The AES 256 encryption-bit security technology secures data without any performance degradation and complies with TCG Opal 2.0. It is also compatible with Microsoft e-drive IEEE1667 so your data is protected at all times for your peace of mind.

5 Year Warranty

Guaranteed Endurance and Reliability

The 850 EVO delivers guaranteed endurance and reliability by doubling the TBW compared to the previous generation 840 EVO backed by an industry leading 5 year warranty. The 850 EVO through minimised performance degradation allows sustained performance improvements of up to 30% over the 840 EVO proving to be one of the most dependable storage devices.

Dynamic Thermal Guard

Protected from Overheating - Dynamic Thermal Guard

The 850 EVO's Dynamic Thermal Guard constantly monitors and maintains ideal temperatures for the drive to operate in optimal conditions for the integrity of your data. When temperatures rise above an optimal threshold, the Thermal Guard automatically throttles temperatures down protecting your data while maintaining responsiveness to ensure your computer is always safe from overheating.

Installation

Level up to the 850 EVO simply without any hassle

In three simple steps the Samsung’s One-stop Install Navigator software easily allows you to migrate all the data and applications from the existing primary storage to the 850 EVO. The Samsung Magician software also allows you to optimise and manage your system best suited for your SSD.

Top-Quality Components

Reviews
Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 47 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fine product This was one of my two options, this and the SanDisk extreme pro, in the end I went for this purely because there was minimal speed difference and this is cheaper by a good bit. 07 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1st class choice all the reviews I read pointed to this being the best. I was not disappointed. My laptop now fires up in about 12 seconds and runs much cooler as there is no spinning disc. I've also dealt with scan in the past and have never been let down, always 1st class service and delivery. 05 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast reliable SSD This is my 3rd Samsung Evo SSD I have bought personally. Quick, reliable drive that has gone in my main rig. Not much more to say on that. 29 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent! Great product will be shopping here again! fast delivery too 14 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy, Quick and Reliable The Samsung EVO 850 exceeds on performance alone against a lot of it's competitors (a quick Google will show you that) but it's the price point that should push this to the top of your buy list. Highly recommended, I have 2 of these and have had no issues installing them, no DOA and no bugs. SSD replacing a HDD is arguably the single greatest performance increasing hardware replacement you can make and the Samsung will deliver performance no questions asked. 31 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb hard drive and value for money Upgraded my Macbook for a very cheap price. Will now get 4 more years out of it. Cheers! 15 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good speed and storage I'm using this as my second storage space so i haven't properly tested the device yet. i have transferred things across and the speed it good, i'm happy i bought this because it is the perfect space size, speed and price i was looking for. 13 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value, great performance Lightweight, slim, well built and fast. Just like me ;-) Real improvement on the boot up and runtime performance of my Windows 7 laptop - it made a 'night & day' improvement for very little cash. 01 March 2016

Silly questions I'm sure but....will this fit (with a 2.5 to 3.5 adaptor obviously) a Mac Pro 3.1 (early 2008) tower and will it actually work as the Mac only runs Sata 3Gbps. I'm sort of assuming it will, but slightly slower?

As far as I am aware there shouldn't be any problem. I had a very old MacBook pre 2007 with a 120GB SSD drive installed and it worked superbly. I was running OS X 10.7 Lion.

When you install the OS it should format the SSD drive automatically for use with your Mac. Hope this helps!

Answer: 
Hello, and it's not a silly question at all.

This device should work in your Mac Pro like any SATA HDD however you are correct in assuming it will be limited to 3Gbps. Although not running at it's maximum potential you should still notice an increase in performance, especially in boot times.
