SSDs have come a long way and now the prices for these excellent storage solutions are very good. Next month, Samsung's new 860 QVO drive will bring the size of affordable SSDs for consumers up to 4 TB, and the most affordable model — with a size of 1 TB — will have an MSRP of just US$149.99.

According to the official announcement, the new Samsung 860 QVO "combines high capacity with fast performance and trusted reliability to reach a broader consumer market." This drive is built using Samsung's high-density 4-bit multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash architecture and uses the ubiquitous SATA interface, as well as the convenient 2.5-inch form factor. 

The highlights of this drive include a Samsung MJX controller, 1 GB to 4 GB of LPDDR4 memory (depending on the drive's capacity), a capacity of 1, 2, or 4 TB, sequential read/write speeds of up to 550/520 MB/s, and random read/write speeds of up to 97/89K IOPS.

The Samsung 860 QVO will be covered with a three-year limited warranty and features a Total Bytes Written value of 360 TB for 1 TB of storage (so up to 1,440 TB for the 4 TB model). Those interested in acquiring the 860 QVO will be able to do so starting next month.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
