4 TB Samsung SSD 850 Evo now available
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.
