Samsung 860 EVO: Who is it worth buying for?
If you are looking for fast storage and appreciate quality, you can't go wrong with the Samsung 860 EVO. Read and write rates are on a very good level for a SATA drive, but the 2.5-inch drive cannot keep up with the speeds of an NVMe SSD. However, this difference is hardly noticeable in everyday use.
Samsung gives extremely generous guarantees for this: Up to 5 years should go into the country or up to 600 TB are written to the memory until the first memory cells refuse their service. However, it can take a long time until you reach the latter value, as long as you are not constantly shoveling huge data packets up and down the disk.

The SSD is actually intended for internal installation in your computer or laptop, with the appropriate housing you can also use the disk as external storage.
Conclusion: The current range of the Samsung 860 EVO on Amazon is impressive. Here you get a high quality SATA SSD with robust write and read rates. The 1 TB model has never been as cheap as it is now. 86.76 euros are a real top price.
If you still work with a normal HDD as a system disk, you should really take it. Your system starts faster, programs open more snappily, the entire system usually feels more responsive.
However, if you don't feel like installing a 2.5-inch SSD in your computer or laptop or don't have the space, you should choose a reasonable M.2 model, optionally with a significantly faster NVMe interface. But for this you usually have to dig a little deeper into your pocket.
