Product Expert Solid State Drives (SSD)

The Samsung 850 EVO 500GB is an internal SSD for your desktop PC or laptop. Thanks to 3D V-NAND technology, the drive writes data faster than comparable internal SSDs. The disk also has a longer service life through better protection of its internal components. The TurboWrite function gives the drive an extra speed boost for large files, so the SSD finishes writing in a few seconds. When you're not using the SSD, it automatically switches to the energy-saving mode that allows you to use up to 25% less energy. Did you lose your laptop, or was it stolen? The disk's hardware encryption protects your personal data. You also don't have to worry about overheating, because the disk cools itself when it gets too hot.
