It seems like Samsung is always first with new technology in the SSD realm. Samsung has been selling TLC-based products for years while the competition is just now introducing their first-generation TLC-based products. Samsung's TLC SSDs are refined second and third generation products that, simply stated, cannot be matched at this time by anyone.
Samsung outsources nothing at all to create their SSDs, except for maybe the enclosures, but then again, it wouldn't surprise me a bit if Samsung actually owns an aluminum mine somewhere. Complete in-house production gives Samsung a massive advantage over their competitors. Complete quality control, in-house R&D, lowest production costs, and streamlined implementation of technological advances are just some of the benefits that come to mind. All of these advantages add up to Samsung delivering exquisite SSDs that simply have not been matched in terms of performance by anyone in the consumer space for quite some time.
As anticipated, the 750 EVO delivers the goods. The 750 EVO takes planar TLC to a new level of performance in the consumer space. Performance that is good enough, in our opinion, to almost make MLC irrelevant. We are delighted with the SSD experience that Samsung's 750 EVO SATA III SSD delivers. While running the 750 EVO as our OS disk loaded up with data to 75% of its capacity, the drive provided a user experience that rivals any SATA SSD we've ever used. We were particularly fond of the 120GB model; we've never seen an SSD that small in capacity crank out performance like it does, and it only costs 50 bucks.
With a tuned-in Windows 10 64-bit OS install taking up as little as 11GB, there is still enough space left for the majority of typical users to live life in the fast lane at a cost that is mainstream. At this time, we are uncertain about the retail availability of the 750 EVO. But, we can tell you this much, if you see it out there, buy it - you will be glad you did.
- 4K QD1 Random Performance
- Sequential Performance
- Low Price Point
- Low TBW
