Thanks to an updated SKU list and some searching, we've come across some initial photos, specs, and pricing for the upcoming Samsung 850 EVO.

You may have heard of an 850 EVO 1TB listing over at Frys, but there's actually more information out there. Here's a quick digest:


  • Memory: 3D VNAND
  • Read: 550MB/sec
  • Write: 520MB/sec
  • Weight: 0.29 lbs

Pricing (via Antares Pro listings at time of writing):

  • 120GB (MZ-75E120B/AM): $100 ($0.83 / GB)
  • 250GB (MZ-75E250B/AM): $146 ($0.58 / GB)
  • 500GB (MZ-75E500B/AM): $258 ($0.52 / GB)
  • 1TB     (MZ-75E1T0B/AM): $477 ($0.48 / GB)

In addition to the above, we saw the 1TB model listed for $500 at Frys, and also found the 500GB for $264 at ProVantage. The shipping date on the Frys listing was initially November 3rd, but that has since shifted to November 24th, presumably due to an influx of orders.

We'll be publishing a full capacity roundup on the 850 Pro in anticipation of the 850 EVO launch, which based on these leaks is imminent.

Off topic but, Intel's P3700 and P3600 are on newegg right now. Just waiting on the 400GB P3500!

for me i like $50 for 100GB.
and 500GB for $200

anything over 500 is not needed for most people as this will cover all OS and productivity and if you are online gaming and want some faster load times then they will fit.

anything over $200 and even at this price is a little hefty considering what you really get.

don't get me wrong I have 2 ssd's but it is still hard to justify.

crucial 120 and 500GB are in my system (m4 and mx models).

in the end i will never complain about the progression of tech

Really wished they made a 2TB ssd. Sure 2 1TB SSD's are faster but I would prefer not having raid.
