Samsung 860 Pro 4TB SSD Review



Anyone with a reasonably sized Steam collection knows how precious storage space can be. Samsung's latest SSD solves that issue.

Nice to see such big capacities now, although for $1,899 it’s insanely expensive!

I'd love that could fit all my games just about on that but I think my Mrs would kill me for spending that much money, maybe now we are getting to the max speed of sata we might see the price per GB coming down hopefully

Yeah, hopefully, price/GB will start going down this years as these new NAND facilities begin operation. Price/GB is only this high because of the huge demand recently, but thankfully not to the same extent as DRAM.

Hopefully 2018 is the year where the supply of PC components can finally keep up with demand.

We have been hitting the limit of SATA 6GB for a few years now, there is a reason why NVMe drives were developed. My 840 Evo drives can saturate a SATA6GB connection and the 840 family are at least 5 years old now.

I don't see many uses for this capacity. You are way better with 2TB NVME, than 4TB SATA if it is the same price. But it is good to have the option for those limited uses.

Could you please start putting in the FORMATTED capacity in your review specs? It would be appreciated.

Nice one Tom! Was just tonight looking at 2TB Samsung drives as a second one for storage until I saw the €660 price tag :/

Great review, For my 33rd next January I'm going to ditch my last HDD and get this drive or whatever is out then in this capacity.
