Samsung SSD 850 Pro 2.5 inch SATAIII
The next leading SSD for performance, endurance and energy efficiency.
- The World's First Consumer 3D V-NAND SSD
- Ultimate Read/Write Performance

Samsung SSD 850 Pro 2.5 inch SATAIII
The world's first 3D Vertical NAND (V-NAND) SSD- the Samsung SSD 850 Pro
The Samsung 850 PRO SSD redefines storage with the world’s first drive based on 3D VNAND flash, offering exceptional read/write performance, reliability and power management efficiency. The 850 Pro delivers up to 2x the speed, density and endurance of conventional flash. The next leading SSD for performance, endurance and energy efficiency.
What is V-NAND and how does it differ from existing technology?
Samsung's flash memory is fabricated using an innovative 3D V-NAND architecture, which stacks 32 cell layers on top of one another. The result is higher density and higher performance using a smaller footprint and a breakthrough in overcoming the density limits of conventional planar NAND.
An SSD that won't quit before you do
With twice the endurance of the previous model*, the 850 PRO will keep working as long as you do. Samsung's V-NAND technology is built to handle a minimum of 150 Terabytes Written (TBW) over the lifetime of the drive, which equates to a 40 GB daily read/write workload over a 10-year period. Plus, it comes with the industry's top-level ten-year limited warranty.
*840 PRO: 73 TBW > 850 PRO: 150 TBW.
Boost performance with an industry-leading 3D VNAND SSD
Powered by Samsung's cutting-edge 3D V-NAND technology, the NAND flash memory delivers class-leading read and write performance for both sequential and random workloads.
Work longer with high-efficiency innovation
The efficient design of the 850 PRO enables you work longer and more productively. Boasting the lowest power consumption of any SSD when in full use, the 850 PRO uses less energy (need source) while maintaining class-leading performance. The 850 PRO fully supports Device Sleep mode for Ultrabook, consuming only 2 milliwats (2mw) of power in its ultra low power state.
Plus, its low power DDR2 cache memory provides high performance while consuming up to 30 percent less power when active and up to 93 percent less power when idle than typical DDR2 or DDR3 memory.
Safeguard precious data without sacrificing performance
Protect your PCs hardware and personal data when you take your laptop on the road with the 850 PRO's Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) technology. The drive includes an AES-256-bit hardware-based, full disk encryption engine that secures your data without the performance loss often experienced with software-based encryption. The 850 PRO's advanced security complies with the TCG Opal v2.0 standard and is compatible with the Microsoft eDrive IEEE 1667 protocol. Plus, you can quickly erase data or sanitize your drive with the crypto erase feature.
Protect your PC from overheating with Dynamic Thermal Guard protection
The 850 PRO includes Dynamic Thermal Guard protection, which sustains performance while minimizing the risk of overheating. This feature monitors and maintains the drive's optimal operating temperature with a throttle feature that automatically drops the SSD's temperature to protect your data while ensuring the responsiveness you expect.

My consideration in choosing this particular SSD was to minimize current cost while maximizing expected lifetime. The 850 Pro was 20% to 30% more expensive than 840 or EVO variants might have been, but for a data storage product based on technology with a finite number of write cycles, I was willing to spend the extra cash in the short term. Choosing the 128GB size kept the cost down while still providing plenty of free space in the final installation.
The Windows Experience Index disk transfer rating went from 5.9 to 7.9, which is the highest rating. Needless to say, the OptiPlex, which was already fast with a Core i7 and 8GB RAM, is even more peppy after the change-out.
Access time is quick like almost all SSDs, but the sustained writes and extremely fast reads set this apart from the rest. I have this installed in my custom desktop used for work creating large zip files and transferring large files via FTP and occasionally RPG games. Load times are quick and zipping 200mb worth of PDFs takes roughly 3 seconds depending on the number of files.
The warranty that comes with the Pro series SSDs is very comforting (150tb writes), I won't be reaching that very soon or within the 5 year period of the warranty, so it's good to know I'm covered.
Extremely satisfied, two years later.
I like the packaged software, magician, it reconfigured windows settings to optimize for wither longevity or speed. Magician also comes with an optional memory disk cache to help add some extra speed and reduce wear on the drive, it is called 'Rapid Mode'. To use Rapid you need a lot of spare ram, at least 2GB more than you need in order to take full advantage of the disk cache benefits.
If you PC doesn't have a 6gps controller and you have a desktop computer, consider buying an add on disk adapter to be able to take full advantage of the drives potential. The adapters cost $20-$30.
You will need an adapter to fit this drive into a desktop computer. They are inexpensive.
Data Migration requires the original drive to be "C:" or in it's original location; an extra cost SATA-USB disk adapter was required and I used a Kingwin EZ-CONNECT SuperSpeed USB 3.0 USI-2535SIU3 for copying to the SSD. Because there was a error at the end of the data migration, I needed to to perform a Windows 7 recovery with an existing Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM DVD. If you need to perform a recovery, you will need to purchase or borrow the correct version of a Windows DVD (64-bit in my case). If you need to re-install Windows (perform a complete or destructive re-installation), you need to purchase a "Genuine" DVD or or have the original DVD that is licensed to your PC; first, try to save critical data that will be wiped out.
The "Magician" software was not very clear to understand.
a. Run this after you migrate the data to the SSD.
b. AHCI mode (in the BIOS) is recommended but I had to restore the default compatibility mode. ACHI mode had failed on my laptop, requiring another Windows recovery.
c. RAPID mode (disk caching in memory) ate up a lot of memory (63% or higher used of the 4 GB total installed - 36% memory used after a reboot), so I disabled it. Yes, everything ran very fast under RAPID mode but I’ve seen issues with this kind of software in a different operating system. I felt that the laptop ran “fast enough” without that software.
d. I used the default “over provisioning” because I wanted the capability to replace a bad sector with that recovery space. Lose some SSD disk space now for better recovery later.
I had repaired the laptop for someone else and they are extremely happy with the results. I had bought the $95 850 PRO because of the 3D memory and a 10 year warranty. I was a little concerned that only 50 GB space remained. If I had to do it over, I probably would have chosen a larger capacity drive (256 BG works well in my home PC). Some other SSD’s have that capacity at the price of the 128 GB Samsung. Those other SSD’s may not have a software package; you would want, at a minimum, disk cloning software; some SSD’s may offer a version of Acronis to download - I previously bought a copy of Acronis, which had extremely fast transfer rates.
