Samsung 850 EVO 2TB SSD Review

Description: It may have taken some time to happen especially since consumer oriented solid state drives (SSDs) have been around for quite some time now but right now they've pretty much saturated the SATA III (6Gb/s) connectivity (although not really in constant/continuous performance) and so until and if something new comes along to replace that interface as well (remember we still have PCIex, M.2 and SAS drives for higher performance levels so that may never happen) manufacturers have chosen to focus on the next best thing which is the release of much higher capacity models aimed towards demanding users and applications. In 2013 and 2014 we did witness the introduction of 960GB/1TB SSD models by quite a few manufacturers but since the capacity gap between regular SSDs and HDDs is still quite large 2TB models have just been introduced into the market with 4TB ones announced to arrive in the coming months (Q1 2016 probably). The 850 EVO line of SSDs by Samsung may have been around for roughly 10 months now but it wasn't until last month that the 2TB variant was announced (along with the 850 Pro 2TB model) and today we are going to dig deeper and see what consumers can expect from it.
