Usually, buyers, especially those who are not as tech savvy as most, look for a drive that has a humongous storage space that processes data fast at the same time. However, most of the time, it is difficult to find solid-state drives (SSDs) that balance these two features. Samsung silently offered its massive 4 TB 850 EVO SSD, which comes with such features.
Positioned as a premium consumer SSD option by the South Korea-based firm, The 850 EVO 4 TB (and all the other drives in the 850 EVO series) is equipped with Samsung’s Triple Layer Cell NAND memory-chip technology and V-NAND technology. These engineering innovations make use of 3D cell-stacking so that more files can fit even into a small storage space, reports PC Mag. It is also built with a SATA 6 GB/s Interface, which is compatible with the SATA 3 GB/s and SATA 1.5 GB/s interfaces.
Unlike other drive warranties that only have the first two to four years covered, The Samsung 850 EVO 4 TB will come with a five-year warranty, making it even sweeter.
