Samsung’s new SSD 850 EVO offers you computation at fast speeds primarily due to its RAPID mode. It also works flawlessly and critics are yet to point out any significant flaw about the drive. Here is why you should buy it:

Design
The device is compact and can be easily carried from one location to another. It is also light in weight therefore will not burden your PC.

Features and Specifications
Some of its specifications are as follows:
o 2.5″-7mm thick drive
o Samsung MEX controller
o Flash memory of 32 layer 3D V-NAND
o Interface of SATA III (6Gb/s)
o Max sequential read of 540 MB/s
o Max sequential write of 520 MB/s
o Max random read of 98,000 IOPS
o Endurance (TB written) of 150
o Endurance (GB written) of 80
o Low power consumption active of 4.4W
o Warranty of five years

The 850 Evo is flexible with the TurboWrite technology. This allows the drive to run a part of its flash memory in a virtual high-performance mode that is of single-layer-cell flash memory. This feature is often found to be present at much costly SSDs, as a buffer zone. Throughout any write operation, data present in the host system is first written to the mentioned buffer zone at very high speeds. And afterwards during idle periods, it is moved to the primary storage location. This results in a quicker write performance for the user.

The 850 Evo features a dynamic thermal guard that is able to constantly maintain and monitor the perfect temperature for the drive. This allows the drive to work in the best possible conditions and therefore ensures solid integrity for your data. Whenever the drive’s temperature heats up more than the optimal threshold then its Thermal Guard will act and bring the temperature down. This function is highly effective for the safety and protection of your data and it also maintains a high degree of responsiveness that ensures the computing system is safe from overheating.

The device comes with an easy-to-use Install Navigator that allows users to conveniently transfer data from their existing drives to the 850 Evo.

Conclusion
Due to its user-friendly features and an affordable price tag, the device is ideal for the average user.
