Samsung SSD 850 Pro 128GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s MZ-7KE128BW Review
The Samsung SSD 850 Pro 128GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s is the smallest drive in the 850 pro series which consists of a 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and the 1 TB. Most of the features are the same, but the capacity differs and so does the performance rate. Check out the Samsung SSD 850 Pro 512GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s review: to sum up, a great drive but the price can easily scare you away. Samsung knows very well that 128GB drives might be slow and they did fix that with one awesome trick. They added the 3D- V-NAND technology. We know how expensive it is to minimize transistors and stack them into a small drive but this will be a thing of the past after the new 3D technology integrated into the new 850 pro.
The V-NAND technology uses a 3D structure that is based on a 3xnm lithography. With the move from 1xnm to 3xnm, the drive comes with more power, scaling benefits and endurance. This technology has increased over thirty times in its program erase cycle over TLC which was introduced about a year ago. Its TBW is out of this world. At 150TB, it’s ways to high for competitor drives that are at 100TB.
The Samsung SSD 850 Pro 128GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s performed very well through the various benchmarks that have been tested by experts from various backgrounds. We can note that the Samsung SSD 850 Pro 128GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s has larger sequential transfers. It offered good reception when it was faced by the challenge of compressibility of the data needed for transfer. Even the transfer of smaller files was impressive. One thing that came out as stunning is the fact that the 128GB 850 Pro wasn’t slow as you would expect from other 128GB drives. It performed very well, and there was little difference in the performance between the 128GB and the 1TB drive.
In the PC Nark 7 tests, the 850 pro did an excellent job. This would be considered as a real world workload and so it proved that the 850 pro is ready to handle such workloads. Results from other benchmarks proved that the 850 pro is a good performer. It was able to top on most tests where it was able to beat industry standard drives from Crucial to San Disk and even Intel. However, with performance comes price. The 128GB one is somehow between $0.9 and $1 per GB while the 1TB one is around $0.73 per GB. All in all, this is one of the best SSDs on the market so far. Trust Samsung to deliver a product that is a strong performer and one with a high endurance. Don’t forget the RAPID mode which makes the speeds double. So far the Samsung SSD 850 Pro 128GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s is the fastest drive on its level. If you are not on a tight budget, you can order one for yourself and get the personal experience.
