The Samsung SSD 850 Pro brings 3D to solid-state drives

Components
[MUSIC] Hi guys **** Ngo here, and this is the all new Samsung SSD 850 Pro. Before we get to it. Well last week I reviewed this one right here the SanDisk Extreme Pro and I said this is the best SSD on the market. Well I was off absolutely right. I still am now, which is no longer absolutely. And because today I decided that the new Samsung here will also share that title. One of the best SSD on the market. And I have a few reason to do so. Let's see. Now firs this one here also has the longest industry leading ten year warranty. It also is internal standard drive to replace your hard drive and when you do it will boost your computer's performance by a great deal. There's one thing this new drive is better than the standard counterpart; that's the endurance. You can write at least 150 terabytes of storage to this device before it becomes unreliable. And that's a huge amount of data, and obviously even me cannot write that much to any drive at all in my whole lifetime. The truth is I change I change my drive every six months or so and have no plans on getting married. You want to see. And that's more the new Samsung here. Is the first 3D SSD on the market. And don't worry, there's no need for the special glasses. It basically means that the storage memory cells string, on the inside here are placed in a more efficient way. Let me show you, now traditionally, the memory stretch string, like my arms right here, are placed on a surface just like that; but on a Samson wheel they actually lift it up in a vertical position so, come on over. As you can see, now we can put more in the same real estate of the surface. Thank you, Lauren. That's our intern by the way. And that means you can have more [UNKNOWN] density. In the Samsung here, it also means that the drive can offer better performance and other features. And in my testing, it was indeed faster, slightly faster than the SanDisk to be the fastest SSD on the market right now. And it can get even faster with a future called RAPID mode. Which gives you up to 25% of the host computer system memory as cache. You can turn on the RAPID mode using the sensor imaging software and also view that software to manage other features of the drive such as updating in firmware turning on encryption. And so on. Really cool, actually. Now the question is, so fast and so cool, why is this new Samsung Bravia is not the best SSD on the market? Well that's because it is also very expensive, costing somewhere between $30 and $130 more than the SanDisk counterpart. Depending on the capacity. For example the 1TB Samsung drive here is priced at 730 dollars while the SanDisk is only 600 dollars and honestly in real world usage you might not see the difference between the two at all, they are both very fast drives. If I'm on the drive here check out my full review at CNET.com, you know, which one to get, the SanDisk or the Samsung, depends entirely on the size of your wallet. Not me, though. I'm getting both. In fact I'm getting them all and that's only because I'm [UNKNOWN] and this has been the first look at the Samsung SSD 8CP Pro. Yep, have them all right here. Think about that.
