Also available for Samsung SSD users are two pieces of software. The first is a data migration tool which helps us to move our existing Operating System to the 850 Evo. The second is Samsung Magician which will support the new models as of version 4.6. Samsung Magician allows us to monitor our drive, upgrade firmware, secure erase and optimise our SSD while also allowing us to set over provisioning to our needs. We first saw Rapid Mode on the last generation of SSD from Samsung and it has been enhanced to offer even higher performance by using our system memory as a high speed cache. The latest version of the Magician software is available from Samsung.

Samsung 850 Evo mSATA M.2 Review – Conclusion

We know from our 850 Evo review (and previous generations) that Samsung offered a high level of build quality on their SSDs and that continues here with the use of the same components as the desktop drives. That means Samsung controller, cache and their latest NAND. Experience with their existing drives tells us that the software solution provided by Samsung is top notch. Both allowing us to migrate our existing OS and then manage/maintain the drive over time.

As far as performance goes, the levels achieved by the M.2 and mSATA variants are very close to the standard model. There are a few minor changes however not at any level which will be noticeable in real world use thanks to TurboWrite, a high speed write buffer in the SSD. Being competitive with the standard 2.5″ 850 Evo SSD also means that the new revisions perform at the higher end of the market as a whole and that users need not be concerned about the smaller form factor impacting them.

Summary: High quality mSATA and m.2 drives which offer the full performance of the 2.5″ models to a new group of consumers.

  1. Good products. But i have to say I am glad they are not even close to my Samsung in terms of speed. 🙂

  2. LesserHellspawn

    A bit disappointing. Samsung have already shown that they can also do 1 GB and close to 1 MB/s on the m.2 slot. For mobile devices these new ones are ok, in a desktop they are useless. Cases and mainboards these days have way more bays/ports than you typically need.

    HELP
    Just bought a new Samsung 850 EVO mSATA SSD but now find out it is only supported by Magician 4.6 and that is not available to download from Samsung support site??? Anyone know where I can get a copy?

    • Hi Jonathan, it should be available any day now. The drive will work fine without it and there are no firmware updates available to apply yet (that I am aware of).

  4. I don’t really understand why they haven’t developed a pci-ex m2 or msata that uses the sata express/nvme.

    Everything still is straight up SATA still which is limited to the 6gbps speeds and of course ahci’s archaic system.
