Samsung 860 Pro SSD Review

👤by Matthew Hodgson Comments 📅29-01-18
Conclusion
No-one can deny the outright benefits of Solid State storage, especially in a PC you will use every day. The time savings can be massive, which in certain circumstances, could also result in cost savings, however, the initial outlay does need some consideration. The Samsung 860 Pro that weve tested today offers excellent performance, almost endless endurance and the drive looks great, but at 126.49 for a 256GB SSD, its certainly at the pricey end of the scale. Other competing drives, such as the Western Digital Blue, offers 90% of the performance for 60% of the cost.

That being said, if outright speed is what youre after, the Samsung 860 Pro series of SSDs is almost unanimously the winner in every test we ran, even worrying some NVMe options in specific workloads; this drive should not be underestimated.



Whether its business or pleasure, you will not find better performance inside of a 2.5 form factor, however price is a bit of an issue.

Pros
+ Amazing performance
+ Looks good
+ Incredible endurance
+ 5 year warranty
