Samsung 860 EVO 500GB 2.5" SATA III SSD (Solid-State Drive) for my PC
Note; On 30 January 2019 one of the Samsung EVO 850 SSD's disconnected from it's disc array (RAID 1)
and is therefore replaced with the next generation Samsung 860 EVO 500GB 2.5" SATA III SSD (Solid-State Drive)
The Samsung 860 EVO is the successor to the Samsung 850 EVO. The 860 EVO series is powered by 64-layer 3D V-NAND technology and comes with an updated Samsung MJX controller. This makes the drive up to 25% more energy-efficient than the previous EVO 850 series. Speeds are more consistent, even with heavy workloads and multi-tasks. The 860 EVO performs at sequential writes up to 520 MB/s with Intelligent TurboWrite technology, and sequential reads up to 550 MB/s. The TurboWrite buffer size is upgraded to 22 GB for faster file transfer. The latest V-NAND technology gives you up to 300 TBW (Terabytes Written), or is backed by a 5-year limited warranty.
