Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD

500GB 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 500GB 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


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 500GB 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 500GB 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.


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

In-house solution consisting of top-quality components

Samsung is the only SSD brand to design and manufacture all its components in-house allowing complete optimised integration. The result - enhanced performance, lower power consumption with up to 1 GB LPDDR2 DRAM cache memory and improved energy-efficiency with the MEX / MGX controller.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The way forward I replaced a 1T drive as a 1T boot disk is a bit ridiculous. I let windows get a look at it using a USB adaptor and formatted the drive so I could use my EASUS ToDo recovery software to load up the last image of the original rotating drive to the SSD. Job done, no fuss, no hassle. The boot time is really fast and I can swap applications in and out with no waiting. It runs stone cold, no noise. Brilliant. 14 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Upgrade for a Old Laptop My partners laptop would often become unresponsive even after a new OS instal recently and the boot time was measured in minutes. Once I installed the new SSD it was like a new machine again. The laptop only has a dual core processor but it is fast enough now to boot in around a minute and there has seen no problems with system hang ups since. I also added 8GB of 1600MHz RAM at the same time so it had enough memory as it was only had 3GB of RAM. 24 April 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by 500GB Samsung 850 EVO, 2.5" SSD, SATA III 6Gb/s, MGX, 3D V-NAND, 512MB Cache, Read 540MB/s, Write 520MB/s, 98k/90k IOPS My Sony Vaio laptop was very slow in booting into Windows 8.1 despite being a reasonably high spec. I had previously purchased a Samsung 850 EVO 256Gb for my desktop when it was on special offer and was impressed with both the ease of install and the ease of transfer of the operating system. The various programs that I keep in my "C" partition are also blisteringly fast as compared to those remaining on the original hard disk. I selected the Samsung EVO 500Gb SSD to replace the laptop's existing internal 1Tb hard disk. I didn't really need or indeed use a whole 1Tb for what is basically a backup for / mobile version of my desktop. Once again, the operating system transferred fine via the supplied software. Installing the SSD was a breeze (thank you YouTube) and the difference it has made is phenomenal. I haven't actually measured the difference exactly but I would guess at 1/3 of the original boot time. Samsung SSD products are normally more expensive but I reckon that they are worth the extra - though I have nothing to compare them to. Watch out for any special offer that may be doing the rounds. I would heartily recommend this product. 05 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant SSD Drive! I have other SSD drives as well as another Samsung Evo but only 120GB. The 500GB drive is amazingly fast & nothing sits waiting to load unless it's a huge system eating game like Flight Simulator. That's all I run on the drive & it's flawless. Loading screen appears almost instantly which it could never do on a normal drive. If you're looking for a drive that delivers true performance, look no further than the Samsung Evo SSD Drives. 18 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Arguably the best upgrade you can do to a PC or laptop Installing this SSD is incredibley easy. Just fit the host adapter and connect the SSD with the power cable and Sata cable, use the Samsung software to clone the existing HDD and the job is done. Boot time with this SSD is amazingly quick compared to a HDD and programs (apps) open much quicker too. In fact the the PC I upgraded behaves like it's a new PC with a faster processor. Highly recommended. My next job is to install another and configure it as a RAID device as the host adapter is designed to allow this. 17 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by wow if you want fast, NVMe is the thing, .................................... 08 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast and reliable Another simple plug and play installation. Fast and reliable SSD drive. Note: this version does not come with any brackets or SATA leads etc. in the box. It's just the bare drive. So make sure you order leads you may need at the same time. 08 February 2016
