We have been lucky and were able to use solid state drives for a few years now. This ensured lightning fast performance even in daily usage circumstances. While the solid state drives are fast, they lacked in capacity. Many have argued that you would need an SSD with HDD combination, to fully utilize your computer speed. But with the advent of much faster, larger and better solid state drives, this is all turned in a completely new direction.
A few years back, you had to bend over backwards to afford more than 1TB of Solid State Drive capacity in terms of finances. With the release of these Samsung 2TB Solid State Drives, the whole game has substantially changed. Let me put it this way; personally I have around 200GB of SSD capacity on my desktop computer. This serves a purpose of only a few games, some professional utility programs and the capacity is close to being overrun. I still have to use a larger, standard hard disk drive for storage and files. With the new series of Samsung drives, the need to have good old fashioned hard drives is simply deleted entirely.
“Samsung experienced surge in demand for 500 gigabyte (GB) and higher capacity SSDs with the introduction of our V-NAND SSDs. The release of the 2TB SSD is a strong driver into the era of multi-terabyte SSD solutions,” said Un-Soo Kim, Senior Vice President of Branded Product Marketing, Memory Business at Samsung Electronics. “We will continue to expand our ultra-high performance and large density SSD product portfolio and provide a new computing experience to users around the globe.”
These SSD’s will be priced at $800 for the standard 2TB 850 Evo model, while the somewhat faster, longer-lasting 850 Pro could easily break the bank at $1,000 for 2TB of usable lightning fast drive space. Not a bad price, if you consider the wide variety of potential applications – especially with professional usage.
