Samsung 950 Pro Review – Conclusion

Starting with the build quality of the 950 Pro we have no issues. In fact we’ve every confidence that the 950 Pro will be a very durable drive. Our experience with Samsung drives of previous generations is that they are rock solid, in fact we have only known one to die, one of their early generation drives sold under another manufacturers brand. V-NAND is now proven technology, having been in the market on the last generation product and  of course the other components such as the LPDDR3 cache makes use of more proven tech. We also like that Samsung have gone with a black PCB, fitting in on the style front with high end motherboards which this drive is likely to be used with.

The warranty too is good, 5-years, and we are big fans of the SSD Magician tool that Samsung provide for the drive. Firmware updates are quick and easy, just a few clicks and a reboot. Secure erase essentially the same and we get plenty of info on the drive as well as the option to run through optimisations.

As far as performance goes, the worst thing we could say about the drive is that it doesn’t quite match the performance of the significantly more expensive Intel 750 series (1.2TB). So when thats the worst we can say then things are great overall. Peak performance achieved the rated spec and more. There were no issues with sustained performance in large data read/write operations and real world tests such as large file copies finished significantly faster than SATA models and earlier generation M.2 devices.
