Samsung SSD 860 EVO and Pro: Deals, Stock, Sizes and More

The new 2018 Samsung SSD 860 Series is here.

Samsung introduced the SSD 860 Pro and SSD 860 Evo solid state drives (SSDs). The new SATA SSD drives follow the hyper-successful Samsung SSD 850 series. The SSD 860 Pro and 860 Evo combine the latest 512Gb and 256Gb 64-layer V-NAND, up to 4GB LPDDR4 mobile DRAM and a new MJX controller to elevate the user experience for both consumers and businesses.

Amazon has the new Samsung SSD 860 Pro already in stock. The Samsung SSD 860 Pro 512GB (MZ-76P512BW) is on sale for $249.99. The 4TB, 2TB, 1TB and 250GB SSD 860 Pro are not yet in stock at amazon.com.

The Samsung SSD 860 Evo model is in stock in all storage variants on amazon.com. The Samsung SSD 860 Evo starts at $94.99 with 250GB storage capacity. The SSD 860 Evo 500GB sells for $169.99, the 1TB 860 Evo is priced at $329.99. The 2TB SSD 860 Evo sells for $649.99 and the 4TB model tops out at $1,399.99.

The new Samsung 860 Pro and 860 Evo support up to 560 MB/s read and 530 MB/s write speeds and offer reliability with an upgraded five-year limited warranty, or up to 4,800 terabytes written (TBW) for the 860 PRO and up to 2,400 TBW4 for the 860 Evi. The new MJX controller also enables faster communication with the host system. The controller is powerful enough to handle workstation storage while improving Linux operating system compatibility.

The Samsung 860 Pro is available in 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities, with the 4TB memory storage holding up to 114 hours and 30 minutes of 4K Ultra HD video. The 860 Pro is available in a widely compatible 2.5-inch form factor, which is ideal for PCs, laptops, workstations and NAS.

The Samsung 860 Evo comes in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities, in a 2.5-inch for PCs and laptops, as well as mSATA and M.2 form factors for ultra-slim computing applications. The 860 EVO has up to six times longer sustained performance than its predecessor due to enhanced Intelligent TurboWrite technology, with read and write speeds of up to 550 MB/s and 520 MB/s, respectively.

The decision between the 860 Pro and 860 Evo is really just depending on your usage. If you want to upgrade your home computer, the Evo is just fine. I recently replaced the SSD in an mid-2010 iMac with a 850 Evo and the result is great.

Samsung released a stunning commercial with an army of computer animated stormtroopers to promote the new SSD line-up.
