Samsung 256GB 850 PRO Enterprise SSD/Solid State Drive
Samsung 850 PRO 256GB 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 256GB model that outperforms similar models on the market by more than 80 MB/s in write speed.
SAMSUNG 850 EVO - 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.
850 EVO FEATURES
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 256GB 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 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.
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.
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.
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.

fit it into the floppy disk drive bay if you have one
Then I bought akasa ssd adapter which scan is not selling anymore, but from what I see this will do just fine, and you don't really need anything expensive at all.
I thought I needed one but my custom PC case had the screw holes in the 3.5" trays.
