Samsung 850 EVO M.2 SATA SSD Review



Samsung have taken their latest creation, the 3D V-NAND, and applied it to a M.2 socket SSD. How does it perform?

It is a shame it is still using the same AHCI/sata 3 controller, it is the only thing holding their 3D Nand back.

Typo under Conclusion at the end of 3th paragraph:
"..., and the 750 EVO M.2 is certainly fast, without compromising aesthetics."

The problem is with a green PCB it's its not going to blend in to the motherboard so for me, i will not be buying any of these M.2 drives until they start coming out with black PCB

There's the kingston hyperx incoming. However, it will cost more than the EVO.

To be fair, there's nothing on it other than the contacts which you could mask off easily, that would stop you spraying it black if that's seriously all thats stopping you buying it
