Samsung M.2 850 EVO 250GB SATA SSD Solid State Drive
3D V-NAND Technology and THE SAMSUNG SSD 850 EVO Series
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 VNAND is fabricated by stacking 32 cell layers vertically over one another rather than decreasing the cells dimensions and trying to fit itself onto a fixed horizontal space resulting in higher density and better performance utilizing a smaller footprint.
The 850 EVO Series is the advanced consumer SSD powered by 3D V-NAND technology that maximizes everyday computing experiences with optimized performance and enhanced reliability.
Optimized performance for everyday computing experiences
Powered by Samsung's cutting-edge 3D V-NAND technology, the 850 EVO M.2 delivers top-class sequential and random read and write performance to optimize everyday computing experiences.
The 850 EVO M.2 is seamlessly integrated with 3D V-NAND, MGX controller, DRAM and software for high optimization. Like the 2.5” form factor model, the 850 EVO M.2 maximizes user experience with trace-based benchmark, which means that the 850 EVO M.2 gives form factor flexibility for SATA 6Gb/s interface by providing various yet standardized option. Therefore, you can enjoy Samsung’s latest technology no matter which form factor your device supports.
Reinforcement of TurboWrite Technology
Samsung was the first one to introduce TurboWrite technology to sequential write performance in the early stages of the 840 EVO Series. With TurboWrite Technology, write speeds have been significantly accelerated during data transfer by creating a high-performance write buffer in an SSD. If a consecutive write operation (i.e. no idle time) exceeds the size of a buffer, the transfer will exit TurboWrite and be processed at ”After TurboWrite” speeds. Once the buffer is cleared, the TurboWrite performance will resume. However, since the buffer size for TurboWrite is more than sufficient for everyday computer use, users can experience accelerated speeds for most workloads.
Guaranteed endurance and reliability for maximum use
The 850 EVO Series delivers guaranteed endurance and reliability by doubling the TBW compared to the previous generation 840 EVO Series backed by an industry leading 5 year warranty
With twice the endurance of a typical NAND flash SSD, the 850 EVO Series will keep working as long as you do. All form factors of the 850 EVO Series are guaranteed with a 5 year limited warranty or 75TBW for 120GB and 250GB, 150TBW for 500GB and 1TB.
Enhanced reliability with improved sustained performance
Through enhanced reliability with improved sustained performance, the 850 EVO Series boasts long-term dependable performance of up to 40% longer than the 840 EVO Series with minimized performance degradation. You can use it every day when doing work or entertaining yourself knowing that it will keep performing even with heavy daily workloads over the years.
Advanced data encryption
Regardless of which form factor it is, the 850 EVO Series provides the same data encryption feature as the 840 EVO Series does. The Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology will help keep your data safe at all times. The device is equipped with an AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption engine to ensure that your personal files remain secure. A hardware-based encryption engine secures your data without performance degradation that you may experience with a software-based encryption. Furthermore, the 850 EVO M.2 is compliant with advanced security management solutions (TCG Opal and IEEE 1667). Magician will guide you on ”How to use security features”. Moreover, you can erase or initialize the data with the crypto erase service with PSID.
Efficient power management for all PC applications
Power consumption affects everyone. With 850 EVO Series, you actually save of up to 50% more on power than with the 840 EVO Series during write operations thanks to 3D V-NAND consuming half the power of 2D planar NAND.
Plus, whether you would like to preserve battery life for longer cordless use or just save costs, power management is important. Device sleep signals the SSD to enter a low power state which is vital for ultra-books and other battery powered devices. With 850 EVO M.2’s Device Sleep feature at a highly efficient 2mW, you get longer battery life on your notebook thanks to a controller optimized for 3D V-NAND. With the 850 EVO M.2, you can work and play longer without having to plug in. Features • Innovative 3D V-NAND Technology

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster
