Product Overview The Samsung SSD 850 EVO. The top SSD for top professionals.

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 VNAND technology, the 850 EVO mSATA delivers top-class sequential and random read and write performance to optimize everyday computing experiences.

The 850 EVO mSATA is seamlessly integrated with 3D V-NAND, MEX/MGX controller, DRAM and software for high optimization. Like the 2.5” form factor model, the 850 EVO mSATA maximizes user experience with trace-based benchmark, meaning that the 850 EVO mSATA provides form factor flexibility for SATA 6Gb/s interface by providing various yet standardized option. Therefore, you can enjoy Samsung’s state-of-the-art technology no matter which form factor your device supports.

Reinforcement of TurboWrite Technology
Samsung was the first one to introduceTuboWrite 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 highperformance 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

Guaranteed endurance
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 mSATA 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 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 mSATA 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. 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 mSATA’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 mSATA, you can work and play longer without having to plug in. Features • Innovative 3D V-NAND Technology

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drives at a great price. These might not be as good as the newer series but as far as performance and value goes these are top-notch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little piece of kit Had no need for Wi-Fi so removed it and replaced it with this. 2SSD and 1HDD in a DVD to HDD bay in a 15"! Nice :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent NUC System Disk I've been using Samsung SSDs for a while now, in laptops and PCs. This mSATA version is as good as the usual 2.5" drives, just alot smaller. This is the second one of these that I've used recently and is running Windows 2012R2 server, Oracle &Tomcat quite happily in my Intel NUC. The other was a replacement laptop system drive for a cutomer. Simple to install, just push into the mSATA socket and screw in a screw at the other end, I had the whole thing set up in less than 10 minutes, easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small on the ouside, big on the inside I own a Lenovo U410 laptop that has a 32 GB SSD cache in it. Every month without fail this cache would stop working and I'd have to fight my laptop and Intel Rapid Start Technology to get the cache back.(and my laptop back up to an acceptable speed). I tried hunting around for a replacement HD for the laptop with a built in SSD cache when I found out the SSD cache was actually a separate mSATA SSD that could be replaced! So after some quick googling I came across this Samsung EVO 850 mSATA HD and took the plunge. It installed into my laptop fine, I shrunk the primary partition on the mechanical HD, then loned it to the mSATA SSD and then changed the boot order in the BIOS and BINGO BONGO I've got my laptop back to top speed on a 256 GB SATA and I'm dead happy. My laptop is faster than it's ever been and I've got more space than I ever had before. Scan price was excellent, along with a good delivery time and a reputable carrier to get my parcel to me. Can't complain about anything!

Questions & Answers

Does this come with Samsung cloning software?

Asked by: lvadmaker
Hi, No it does not. It's just like a OEM piece of kit basically. Software is easily downloaded if you wanted it
