The world's first consumer-level 2.5-inch 4 TB SSD will cost you 1400 Euros to own and come with a 5-year warranty.

Samsung SSDs are commonly found on consumer notebooks in both M.2 and 2.5-inch SATA III form factors. According to the manufacturer, the SSD 850 Evo series will now have 4 TB options to be the world's largest capacity SSD for home users. The actual drive itself will be just 7 mm thick like most other 2.5-inch SSDs for better compatibility between desktops and notebooks.

Just how much will a 4 TB drive cost you? While the street price is 1600 Euros in Germany, online retailers are currently listing it at 1400 Euros instead. It's not often that a single drive can cost twice as much as the notebook that it's running on. Samsung is promising a warranty of up to 5 years or 300 TB TBW (Total Bytes Written), whichever comes first.

Thanks to V-NAND and Turbo Write technology, the 4 TB drive can offer up to 540 MB/s sequential read and 520 MB/s sequential write rates. Not exactly NVMe speeds, but the appeal is in its massive capacity. The included Samsung Magician software promises additional features and diagnostic options for users.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
