The Samsung 860 Evo 500GB SATA M.2 SSD (MZ-N6E500BW) has been specifically designed as a replacement drive for domestic desktops and laptops. An evolution of Samsung’s popular 850 Evo drive, which was the first domestic drive to introduce V-NAND technology, the 860 Evo offers improvements in reliability, speed and capacity over its predecessor.
The Samsung 860 Evo 500GB SATA M.2 SSD uses an updated version of Samsung V-NAND technology which offers improved data transfer speeds over longer periods of time. The drive also uses an improved version of Samsung TurboWrite technology which can automatically increase the amount of allocated space on the TurboWrite region of the drive, increasing the available TurboWrite drive space by more than 6x compared to the previous generation. This should help to prevent performance degradation which sometimes occurs when transferring large files or documents.
Reliability is important for any hard drive, so all 860 Evo series drives have been put through a high-intensity testing program to ensure high reliability throughout the life of the drive. All tests were carried out in accordance with JESD218 SSD endurance and test method standards. As a result, the Samsung 860 Evo 500GB SATA M.2 SSD comes with an industry leading 5-year or 1,200 terabytes written (TBW) warranty. This gives the user complete confidence that the drive will perform faultlessly throughout its lifetime.
The security and integrity of data is also an important aspect for all users, both domestic and commercial. So you can relax knowing that the Samsung 860 Evo 500GB SATA M.2 SSD uses state-of-the-art self-encrypting drive technology, helping to keep your data safe at all times. All 860 Evo drives also come with an AES 256-bit hardware encryption engine which encrypts data on the drive avoiding the performance degradation which is often associated with software encryption engines.
