Slightly faster than the 840 PRO Series.
10 year warranty.
Other Thoughts: Samsung 850 PRO 256GB
What exactly is the Samsung warranty on the 850 PRO series?
The Samsung warranty is as follows:
128GB / 256GB - 10 Years or 150TBW (Total Bytes Written)
512GB / 1TB - 10 Years or 300TBW (Total Bytes Written)
The Samsung Magician software states just how many total bytes
have been written to the drive. Once the 150TBW or 300TBW threshold
has been exceeded, the drive is out of warranty.
Unless, using programs that write heavily to the drive, many purchasers
will never even come close to the above thresholds within 10 years. Many
will knowingly upgrade long before then, so the long-term warranty is an
For those concerned about the warranty and want to hold on to the drives
for that long, the caveat has been revealed.
Other Thoughts: I upgraded from the 840 PRO 128GB, based upon more speed. But, just like people say........there's no noticeable speed difference in day to day use. Comparing a 128GB 840 PRO to a 256GB 850 PRO, one would expect some speed difference. Nope. Even with an AS SSD benchmark test, it's not that much of a difference.
Lesson learned. Samsung SSD's are so fast these days that an upgrade based upon speed, is uh, kinda silly.
Pros: Intel Celeron quad core processor. Can run Windows 7 and 8 on it. RAM can be upgraded up to 8GB. Can use XBMC on the NAS to play media through HDMI to the TV. Plenty of media servers.
Other Thoughts: I use the NAS mostly for streaming media and XBMC. Even though it has VM capabilities, it's still a NAS with a Celeron processor, so don't expect it to run Windows or other operating systems speedily. The NAS companies are moving away from the slower processors and really starting to beef these up. At least, some companies are. I love my QNAP TS-253 PRO. Newegg, as usual, shipped it quick!!READ FULL REVIEW
