[Bestbuy618DIY Hardware Channel]As time passes, you will notice that the computer’s storage space runs out like a burning candle; at the same time, the “explosive” growth of data volume increases the demand for storage space and storage efficiency. Perhaps it’s time to install an SSD on your computer to simplify storage. When it comes to SSDs, we must mention the “leader” in this field – Samsung.
Samsung has made great strides in the field of SSDs with its advanced technology, high quality products, and good user reputation, from V-NAND, Phoenix controller, Intelligent TurboWrite technology, to dynamic thermal protection technology. As a new product, the Samsung 860 QVO SSD has an excellent price/performance ratio. It employs Samsung’s high-density 4-bit MLC NAND flash technology, which allows for further capacity expansion and is well suited for entry-level users who require high-speed and high-capacity memory.
Now that I have a Samsung SSD 860 QVO SSD, I will put it through a thorough test to determine whether this product is reliable and worthy of user trust. This Samsung 860 QVO SSD, with a capacity of 2TB, was manufactured in Korea on October 16, 2018.
The Samsung 860 QVO SSD is 2.5 inches in size and 2TB in capacity, geared toward entry-level users who are more cost-sensitive and require high-speed and high-capacity storage products. While the Samsung 860 EVO is aimed at mainstream users, the higher-end Samsung 860 PRO is aimed at professionals. The product comes in a simple, no-frills package with the Samsung 860 QVO SSD and an almost identically sized manual.
The Samsung 860 QVO SSD weighs about 60g, measures 100×69.85×6.8(mm), has a capacity of 1TB/2TB/4TB, has a 6GB/s SATA interface, and supports S.
Official tests claim a read speed of up to 550MB/s and a write speed of 520MB/s with Intelligent TurboWrite enabled. The 860 also includes Samsung V-NAND technology with a 3-year or up to 1440TBW (4TB) warranty, removing user concerns. Furthermore, the precise ECC algorithm and the new MJX controller can bring higher speed, and the improved TRIM instruction enhances Linux compatibility. Finally, the terabyte capacity, super-fast SSD can greatly enhance users’ computing experience.
Hands-on with the Samsung 860 QVO As the old adage goes, “it’s a mule that comes out and slips away.” In this test, I used a Lenovo ThinkPad with an Intel Core i7-6500U processor, 8GB RAM, and Windows 10 Professional. CrystalDiskMark test. CrystalDiskMark is a computer hard drive testing tool with a user-friendly interface. Furthermore, it can detect and test the read and write speed of storage devices with a single click, with few limitations.
Next, we used CrystalDiskMark to evaluate the read and write performance of the Samsung 860 QVO mobile SSD.
The Samsung 860 QVO has a good read and write performance, according to the test results, with a maximum read speed of 551.4MB/s and a maximum write speed of 488.2MB/s. In addition to CrystalDiskMark, we use AS SSD Benchmark, a standard testing program designed specifically for SSD testing, covering key data items such as persistent read/write, single-threaded 4KB random read/write and 64-threaded 4KB random read/write, and disk seek time. Furthermore, the software is able to standardize the scores according to a formula that reflects the real performance. As a result, it is a popular SSD testing tool.
The above test results show that the Samsung 860 QVO mobile SSD has a maximum sequential read speed of 511.43MB/s and a maximum write speed of 464.60MB/s. The sequential read and write speeds are both very fast.
As a useful SSD management software, Samsung SSD Magician Management Software supports a wide range of SSDs, including the 470 series, 830 series, 840 series, 840 EVO mSATA, 840EVO, 840PRO, 850EVO, 860EVO, 860PRO, and many more. It monitors drive operation, manages your drive, and further optimizes drive performance. Specifically, Samsung Magician software can check drive health status and TBW value, upgrade firmware, enable RAPID (Read/Write Acceleration) mode, and securely erase data.
First, go to Samsung’s official website, find the download address: www.samsung.com/magician, and download Samsung Magician Magician software.
The software installation prompts, “Are you a resident of a European country/region (GDPR country/region?)?” Click No to proceed to the “Installation Wizard” page Click next, go to “License”, select “Agree” item Proceed to the next step, the final installation is complete, run Samsung Magician software End of installation, enter the initial environment
When we enter the software page, we can see some information: firmware version, SSD status, total bytes written, interface and total capacity, and other related information. Among them, AHCI mode is enabled, TRIM status is enabled, and RAPID mode allows for more convenient use of the PC through performance enhancement tools, but requires Samsung SSD model as well as system confirmation.
(Performance test)(Reserved space function) Samsung Magic has made an initial determination of the 860 QVO and the SSD is in good condition with a total capacity of 1863GB and 1837GB available.Full Summary. As an entry-level product, the Samsung 860 QVO SSD is not only a strong performer with exceptional performance, but it is also reasonably priced and well suited for the average user in terms of speed, cost, and storage capacity.
The excellent read/write performance, as well as the seamless integration of new NAND technology and ultra-long endurance, demonstrate that this is a good product. And the tried-and-true Samsung MJX controller, which is now more compatible with a wider range of client applications, makes it even better.
