Samsung 850 PRO 256GB SSD

256GB 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 256GB model that outperforms similar models on the market by more than 80 MB/s in write speed.

Samsung 850 EVO - Rapid mode

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

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 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 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.

Installation

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.

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 from Works extremely well Is an excellent drive, particularly for the application in a slightly dated PC system. The fast access and responsiveness really breathes new life into the older PC. Would recommend this as the most effective upgrade for any PC or laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional SSD Bought this to replace my 120GB intel SSD that I used as my OS drive. I actually wanted an intel 250GB but they were not in stock and I needed something ASAP. So I chose the 850 Pro. So far it has not dissapointed at all. Is it faster than the intel I replaced it with? Id say about the same kind of speeed. And its just as reliable. I reformatted the 120GB intel, and now use it as an additional internal hard drive ( moved all my song files to the intel, so its now a dedicated song file hard drive) while the samsung runs W10 and all my DAW software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SSD bought for old laptop I bought the drive for me old R519 Samsung latop. The idea was to boost performance of the overall PC. It is much faster now at loading and launching programs. It was expensive but i feel it was cheaper than replacing the laptop A year ago i bought a cheaper SSD and had problems with it losing data, the Samsung one has been fine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast SSD I used this SSD to replace the HD in my iMac mid 2011. It was very easy to install and boots quicker than the old HD. A very quick service from Scan with good packaging.
