Arddrive, Northampton IT Professional

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fast and easy to setup
Bad points:
None, people will say it is expensive but i think you pay for what you get. This is cutting edge and if you need the speed and power (or you just love it) then i don't think you can go wrong with it

Manufacturer's Description

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.

Achieve ultimate read/write performance to maximize your everyday computing experience with Samsung’s TurboWrite technology. Compared to the 840 EVO, the 850 EVO shows an increased overall user experience of approximately 13%, partly thanks to the now 2x faster random write speeds* The 850 EVO delivers top-notch performance in its class, with sequential read and write speeds of 540MB/s and 520 MB/s, respectively. Enjoy optimized random performance in all Queue Depths (QD) for client PC usage scenarios.

The Samsung 850 EVO mSATA is a speed machine. With the latest Samsung Magician software, you can activate the RAPID mode to tap unused PC memory (DRAM) and use it as cache storage up to 25% of the total DRAM capacity. With the dramatic increase in storage, data processing speeds and random QD can be up to 2x faster* under the RAPID mode.
