Samsung 850 EVO 4 TB SSD Revealed; Larger Than Life
The Samsung 850 EVO is one of the most popular offerings by the company. It is an incredibly fast SSD that gives you fast read and write speeds. There has been a 2 TB version of the Samsung 850 EVO SSD but now Samsung has gone one step ahead and has now released a 4 TB version of the popular Samsung 850 EVO SSDs. Double the storage than before.
For SSDs this is incredibly large. We do not have many companies offering such kind of SSD storage and this might be the only 4 TB SSD on the market right now.
The 4 TB Samsung 850 EVO offers up to 540 MB/s read speed and up to 520 MB/s write speed. It also has up to 98,000 IOPS sequential reads and with up to 90,000 IOPS sequential writes. The Samsung 850 EVO is Available in a 2.5-inch form factor. The SSD comes along with SATA 6 Gb/s interface.
You also get a 5-year warranty with the Samsung 850 EVO. So is it all good? No, there is a catch to the Samsung 850 EVO. Sadly reports state that it will cost about $1,499, which is very expensive. Not something you can put into your budget gaming rig.
Whether or not to get the Samsung 850 EVO depends on you at the end of the day. It is an amazing product and will leave your hard drive behind. There are no moving parts so it is not going to go bad over time. It is kind of a one-time investment if you look at it. Once you put the money in you are pretty much covered for 5-7 years.
The Samsung 850 series is a great SSD which you should get if you can afford it. If not then well you can still get one with less memory space and couple it with a hard disk. That is the best advice I can give for budget gamers.
