Samsung SSD 850 EVO

The Samsung's 2TB version of the 850 Evo offers superb capacity and it virtually matches the 850 Pro drive for speed. If the better warranty and endurance rating of the Pro are a non-issue for you, then this is the SSD to go for.

This is the only 2TB 970 Series model. The performance is slightly lower than the 1TB, but you won't notice the difference. The capacity alone makes this a standout NVMe SSD. The 2TB 960 Pro is the only competitor, but it costs nearly $500 more.

Samsung 840 EVO Series (MZ-7TE)

This Samsung 840 EVO (500GB) is the SSD equivalent of having one's cake and eating it, too. When the Samsung 840 and 840 Pro launched, there was justified concern about the drive's use of TLC NAND, and a significant performance gap between the two....
