The Samsung 860 Evo 250GB SATA M.2 SSD (MZ-N6E250BW) is designed as a replacement drive for mainstream desktops and laptops. It is an updated version of the popular 850 Evo, offering improved performance, reliability, and capacity over its predecessor. The 860 Evo is equipped with Samsung’s latest MJX controller and fourth generation V-NAND technology to provide industry-leading performance for a SATA SSD drive.
By using Samsung’s fourth generation V-NAND and intelligent TurboWrite technology, the 860 Evo delivers high-speed sequential read speeds up to 550 MB/s and write speeds up to 520 MB/s. The latest version of TurboWrite automatically allocates 6x more space on the drive as previous versions which should help to avoid periodic write performance issues during the transfer of large files.
The Samsung 860 Evo 250GB SATA M.2 SSD assures improved reliability over the previous 850 Evo generation thanks to improved V-NAND technology which was proven with a comprehensive heavy load user testing environment. This allows Samsung to offer an unmatched 5-year limited 1,200 TBW warranty on all 860 series drives. Long-term performance degradation of the drive has also been reduced, with the drive providing up to 51% higher sustained performance compared to its predecessor.
Advanced security features
With a range of advanced data encryption technologies built-in, the 860 Evo range helps to keep your private data safe from prying eyes. The drive includes AES 256 bit hardware-based encryption, which helps to protect data without the performance degradation that is often seen with conventional software encryption technology. The 860 Evo is also compliant with TCG Opal and IEEE 1667 encryption standards, giving you peace of mind that your data is stored using the safest most secure protocols.
Easy installation and management
Because the 860 Evo 250GB SATA M.2 SSD is designed as a replacement drive it comes with Samsung's data migration software as standard. This easy to use powerful software allows you to quickly clone your old drive making data migration an effortless process. And once your data is transferred the software helps to keep your drive optimised for performance by checking for updates and firmware upgrades automatically.
