Samsung has been known to make some of the best solid state drives (SSDs) on the market. It has also consistently tried to offer them for lower prices. The Samsung 860 QVO, the more affordable sibling of the 860 EVO, has now gotten even more affordable. This SSD in its 1TB capacity variant has now gotten the biggest ever price cut since launch, and it is now available at a measly $99.99 on Amazon.
The Samsung 860 QVO launched back November 2018 starting at 1TB, and maxing out at 4TB. The starting price at the time was $149.99, and it has been offered with discounts since then. The latest price cut however makes it one of the best deals on SSDs right now. More so if you have been specifically waiting for a Samsung one.
The 860 QVO was built on Samsung’s high-density 4-bit multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash architecture, one of the newer technological advancements in the solid state drive industry. The quad-level cell (QLC) NAND technology has not gone mainstream yet, but there’s a good chance we will be seeing more and more QLC NAND based SSDs in the near future.
When it comes to performance, the drive offers sequential read speeds of up to 550 megabytes per second (MB/s). The write speeds go up to 520 MB/s. The drive manages to achieve these speeds because of the new NAND technology running under the MJX controller, coupled with the Intelligent TurboWrite technology.
All things considered, the Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD at $99.99 is one killer deal. If you have been planning to upgrade your system with an SSD for a while now and have been waiting for the right deal, I recommend you snag this one. You can pick it up at this all-time low price from Amazon.com, right now.
