5.0 out of 5 stars 400 TBW IS THE HIGHEST IN SATA SSD TODAY
Reviewed in India on August 16, 2018
Yes a new storage but why an ssd you may ask as usual let me answer a few FAQS first
1 What is a ssd ?
ANS A ssd or solid state drive is a storage device like a harddisk but the spinning disks are replaced by memory modules and is a lot faster and more reliable than even the modern harddisks

2 How fast are they
ANS SSDs are amazingly fast in this products case it is an SATA ssd so it is limited to 600mpbs in a SATA 3 port and 150mpbs in SATA 2. That is just for SATA ssd but for NVME drives it is a whole another story

3 NVME What is that
ANS NVME or non volatile memory express is a host controller interface by which an m.2 ssd is connected to a ×4 pcie slot and these four lanes are connected directly to the cpu giving you blazing fast read and writes

4 What is TCL
ANS SLC - single level cell 1 bit per cell
MLC -multi level cell 2 bits per cell
TLC - triple level cell 3 bits per cell

Now about the product product it is manufactured on 12nm San disk memory chips

PROS
1 . 3 YEARS WARRANTY
2 . 400 TB DATA WRITTEN WHICH IS THE HIGHEST

CONS
TLC can store three bits per cell for greater data density and more capacious SSDs in the same form factor but its sustained write performance is comparatively poor to SLC and MLC based drives

It is a wonderful product and I will recommend it to all my friends but not all of us can afford a ssd for our computers if you have tight budget but still need faster than harddisk performance I suggest you take a look at SSHD or Solid State Hybrid Drive it is not as fast but relatively cheap

PS : It is an electrostatic sensitive device please GROUND YOURSELF BEFORE HANDLING the product to discharge any esd

If you buy this product please take the time to write about the things you love or hate about it

AS ALLWAYS THANK YOU FOR READING THIS REVIEW IF YOU FOUND THIS HELPFULL OR UNHELPFUL YOU KNOW WHAT TO

4.0 out of 5 stars Si encuentras un Samsung 860 EVO a precio similar, ¡Cómpralo!
Reviewed in Mexico on February 21, 2018
Mi conclusión sobre cuál SSD elegir es simple, de las marcas y productos Samsung 860 EVO, Western Digital Blue 3D NAND, Sandisk Ultra 3D y Crucial MX500 compra el más barato. Yo sé que existen otras marcas pero esas son las que considero mejores para montar el sistema operativo, utilizar como almacenamiento auxiliar (recomendado para juegos) y almacenamiento externo (que no recomiendo tanto). En mi opinión la mejor marca, la que tiene el mejor soporte, las mayores velocidades, el mejor controlador y el mejor software es Samsung, es el rey. Aun así, compré este WD Blue de 1 TB con la intensión de utilizarlo en una PS4 y consolas de versiones posteriores. Me ha dejado satisfecho en cuanto a rendimiento y precio.
Al principio, me preocupaba mucho por el desempeño (velocidades) del SSD. Me di cuenta de que los SSD que mencioné antes son similares entre sí y su funcionamiento es casi imperceptible. Mi sugerencia es comprar el que tenga el mejor precio y que se ajuste a tus necesidades.
