500GB SAMSUNG 850 EVO SERIES SOLID STATE DRIVE
What is 3D V-NAND and how does it differ from existing technology?
Samsung’s unique and innovative 3D V-NAND flash memory architecture is a breakthrough in overcoming the density limitations, performance and endurance of today’s conventional planar NAND architecture. 3D V-NAND is fabricated by stacking 32 cell layers vertically over one another rather than decreasing the cells dimensions and trying to fit itself onto a fixed horizontal space resulting in higher density and better performance utilising a smaller footprint.
Secure valuable data through advanced AES 256 encryption
The 850 EVO comes fortified with the latest hardware-based full disk encryption engine. The AES 256 encryption-bit security technology secures data without any performance degradation and complies with TCG Opal 2.0. It is also compatible with Microsoft e-drive IEEE1667 so your data is protected at all times for your peace of mind.
Protect against overheating with a highly responsive Dynamic Thermal Guard
The 850 EVO’s Dynamic Thermal Guard constantly monitors and maintains ideal temperatures for the drive to operate in optimal conditions for the integrity of your data. When temperatures rise above an optimal threshold, the Thermal Guard automatically throttles temperatures down protecting your data while maintaining responsiveness to ensure your computer is always safe from overheating.
Level up to the 850 EVO simply without any hassle
In three simple steps the Samsung’s One-stop Install Navigator software easily allows you to migrate all the data and applications from the existing primary storage to the 850 EVO. The Samsung Magician software also allows you to optimise and manage your system best suited for your SSD.
Acquire an integrated in-house solution consisting of top-quality components
Samsung is the only SSD brand to design and manufacture all its components in-house allowing complete optimised integration. The result – enhanced performance, lower power consumption with an up to 1 GB LPDDR2 DRAM cache memory and improved energy-efficiency with the MEX/MGX controller.

Comments, Questions & Reviews:
850 evo vs 950 pro by Stanna
Apart from price is there a big performance difference between this and the 950 pro card
Yes The Samsung 950 NVMe drives are capable of considerably faster speeds. This SSD is listed with speeds of sequential Read: 540Mbps, Sequential Write: 520Mbps.
The 950 specifications are - sequential Read: Up to 2,500 MB/sec, Sequential Write: Up to 1,500 MB/sec.
You will need to make sure your PC is compatible with this M.2 drive however to be able to make use of it.
Thank you for your question
Cables Included? by Daniel
Does this item include cables? Or is it just the drive?
It is just the drive and software.
why? by Tommy
Aria has sent me a email this morning informing me this unit is on sale for Â£99 before vat.
When I linked from the email its no longer available at the reduced price. What is the point of sending emails when the unit has increased in price.
In the email it states that there is a limited amount of stock for these super special prices, keep checking back as sometimes SSP price will be restocked.
warranty duration? by Tom
This page states the warranty is 5 years however following the link above to Samsung's page it states 3 years. Will Aria honour the 5 year warranty?
The Warranty is with Samsung for 5 years, as you can see from the picture provided.
Perfect :) by Baz
Arrived today, installed in minutes, copied everything across from my old storage HDD (already have another SSD for OS) in about 30 minutes, removed old HDD from rig ... now have a damn near silent PC and far faster access to all my photos, videos and games :) A quality SSD for the price, buy one, you won't regret it ..... in fact I'm seriously considering getting a second for RAID ... ;)438 of 824 people rated this review as helpful
