Samsung release a 4TB 850 EVO SSD

 

Samsung has released a new 4TB version of their 850 EVO SSD, offering capacities that  are larger than most desktop grade mechanical hard drives in a much smaller form factor. 

This SSD comes in at an eye-watering price point of $1499.99, which is over 2x the price of the 2TB variant, which currently costs $699.99 on Samsung's website. 

While this device only comes using the SATA III interface it is simply astounding that Samsung has been able to pack in this much storage into the standard 2.5 inch SSD form factor, which allows this drive to fit into standard laptops and desktops.

This new SSD comes with a 5-year warranty with up to 300 Terabytes written and offers sequential read speeds of 540MB/s and sequential write speeds of 520MB/s. 

Hopefully, Samsung will soon be able to release 2TB and 4TB drives at more competitive price points or in a drive the makes use of the NVMe U.2 interface or in a PCIe form factor.

That's why I chose to put three 750GB drives in RAID0 for my games library - PRICE!!! 3 x $80 versus $700 ($900 I think when it first released) is a big chunk of change for many builders.

Now compare with four 1TB drives - $320 versus $1500. RAID0 speed is still very respectable when you consider the HUUUUUUGE price difference.

And remember to always back up... because array failures suck!!!Quote

Awesome to see but these prices still need to come down if we are to ever really replace hard drives.

You can buy a WD Blue 4TB now from OCUK for £119.99 or a Toshiba 4TB for £102.99 and if it's just for games, Docs, Pics etc... the read/write speeds aren't worth an extra £1170 according to OCUK's pricing.Quote
