ORIGINAL REVIEW: Your warranty on this SSD is THREE years, parts & labor. Not FIVE like it says here. And never mind the box says "5 Year Limited Warranty" either.
Because when I looked up the model code stated right on that same box at the Samsung website (MZ-76P256BW) what I got back, under the warranty statement, was "Warranty Information for MZ-76P256BW - Parts : 36 months, Labor : 36 months."
That's just raw. Samsung has always been the go-to for top-shelf quality. What gives with this kind of maneuver?
The prior model, the 850 Pro, had a warranty period of 10 years, parts & labor. The shift from 10 years to (supposed) 5 years cast enough of a dark shadow on the product. Now this.
I say let's hope they start selling it at Bed, Bath & Beyond. They'll take anything back for store credit.
I used crystaldiskmark to benchmark drive performance. It tests with and without command queuing. Since all current operating systems I use (Windows 7 and later, Linux and Mac) all enable command queuing by default I'll focus on those results.
The drive does great with sequential reads/writes. I got reads of about 558MB/s and writes of about 512MB/s. Most SSD drives do fairly well on sequential read/write operations. With this drive the difference is only about 10% for queued vs unqueued.
This 860 PRO drive did better than many other drives with random reads at about 300MB/s and writes at about 207MB/s. Unqueued reads were about 36MB/S (almost 1/10th the queued rate!) and writes were about 65MB/s (about 1/3 the queued rate). Command queuing makes a big difference with random access and makes this drive stand out for this use.
The 2.5in SATA form factor works well with the Dell 2.5in to 3.5in adapters that fit into the existing drive caddies making 3.5in drive replacement a breeze.
An important factor for me and my clients is reliability. SSD's have come a long way since they were introduced some years ago. The Samsung Pro series has better reliability and higher write specs than their EVO models. They also have slightly larger sizes in powers of 2 rather rounded down to the nearest decimal value.
In conclusion, this Samsung 860 SSD is one of the faster ones I've used, especially on random reads/writes with queuing enabled. This drive was perfect to upgrade my client's system. The old mechanical drive is now retired and their previously fairly fast tower just flies now! With this sort of result I love these drives for upgrades. Definitely 5 stars.
It's interesting that the 860 is cheaper than the 850.

Its really good. But if you want to use it for normal purpose it's better you buy 860 EVO not 860 EVO Pro.
Once I mounted the drive it showed up as having only 256GB. I was confused and so I called Samsung Support. They told me to run a few tests and it turns out that the drive I have received is an older model 840 PRO with 256GB capacity even though the disk and packaging both have stickers to claim it was an 860 PRO 2TB drive! Returning this for a refund but now hesitant to order the same model again if the replacement comes from the same batch.
NOTA: Para aquellos que andan pensando entre el 860 Pro (éste que estoy usando) y el 860 Evo (u otro SSD más barato), admito que hay opciones más baratas (tuve un SSD marca SanDisk que todavia funciona y muy bien), pero me temo que SÍ hay diferencia de velocidad. El 860 Pro esta diseñado para máxima velocidad y duración. Si son jugadores ávidos como yo (o peor) y pueden darse este lujo, porque lo es, no creo que se arrepientan de conseguir éste SSD.
Hence the need for SSD. I have buildservers running off commercial Samsung SSDs churning hundreds of builds a day. HP will tell me to buy their enterprise SSD. Whatever, I'll use commercial, do backups and deal with the failure that has yet to occur.
In general I cannot imagine working with mechanical drives. Whatever you do, if your laptop has a mechanical drive, throw it in the garbage and get an SSD. YESTERDAY. It will change your life.
As I said failure rate for the Samsungs is zero. I've had many failures with random no name SSD brands. I've had Transcend M.2 SSDs lose my primary work drive. Good luck retrieving that. I've even had the king Intel SSDs fail. But not Samsung. Am I lucky? Is Samsung that good? Time will tell, but I only buy Samsung SSDs now.
That is not to say these SSDs are good forever. You might be surprised to know that SSDs at least from Samsung are warrantied for a number of years, OR an amount of bytes written. The PRO line is rated for more use than the EVO line. In any case you should install Samsung Magician. It will tell you what your usage is at and use that as a barometer to understand if a failure is more likely. The software will also annoy you incessantly to update your SSD firmware. Of course they warn you to do a full backup before a firmware upgrade. No thanks.
If you can afford the premium get the PRO it has somewhat better performance. But I've got guys running EVOs for years and no problem. Whatever Samsung SSD I go with I've yet to go wrong.
Con: Expected better, but I am not finish with trying with all different settings.
I purchased this drive mostly for reliability, and hope this is a case. I purchased it as I wanted it in the first place but did not think I wanted to afford it. Since it came on sale for $399CDN, I thought Marry Christmas to me.
I replaced 240Gb Mushkin Reactor an excellent MLC drive, but I ended up wanting a larger drive. I purchased Intel 545 512Gb, with slight performance loss, then I purchased Crucial MX500_250Gb, which was on par with Mushkin as far as performance went, but it vent back to the box as I will sell it to someone who does not need larger size.
I also decided to get a larger drive, to take advantage of “Over Provisioning” which is currently set at 10%. TRIM status enabled and RAPID Mode ON.
Attached are few pictures from my findings.
