Samsung 850 120GB Listed Online

The hardware world is full of rumors. For example, there was one floating around speculating that Samsung would drop the Pro / EVO naming scheme for their new SSDs. Well, the Samsung 850's product page recently went live on the company's Chinese site, and the Pro / EVO suffix is no where to be seen. So, it looks like the rumor was true after all.

The Samsung 850 120 GB, which carries the model number MZ-7LN120, is the only model listed at the moment. According to the specifications table, the drive sports Samsung's MGX Controller, V-NAND 3 bit MLC flash memory, and 256 MB of LPDDR3 DRAM. In terms of performance, the Samsung 850 is capable of delivering sequential read and write transfer speeds of 540 MB/s and 520 MB/s, with random read and write IOPS that top out at 88,000 IOPS and 70,000 IOPS respectively.
Samsung backs the 120 GB model with a three-year warranty and coverage for up to 100 terabytes written.Source: Samsung

only upgrades might be new Nand and controller(to keep cost down of manufacturing nand on older process), also Samsung really doesnt have to upgrade these drives as there is hardly any competition(performance) in this segment right now.

It would make sense to give no suffix to normal models and Pro to "better" ones. Though Evo and Pro was rather clear designation imo.

Replace XXX for what ever number they are using in this moment....

samsung XXX SSD: regular craps...
samsungXX X SSD Evo: mid range craps...
samsungXXS SSD Pro: high end or enthusiast craps...
That is how it should be used, but nowadays brands name and rename products like... a monkey eating bananas...

Thanks again marketing for destroying as much as possible all the brading now days with the best seller words "Pro, gaming, or RGB" tag almost everything...

The biggest difference between the EVO and Pro was the warranty.... And a 3 year doesn't do it for me. This is why I recommend the Pro for my users.

Thats why I bought a Pro for my desktop as well, I like that 10 year warranty.OS is on a Pro.
However I might buy an evo someday for my desktop to store some more games.

Yeah, it's pretty pathetic that a nearly three year old model is kicking the ass of nearly every new model coming out today. It's like the competition isn't even trying.

They are really not even trying. One would expect that by now, every single SATA SSD would saturate SATA3 to its fullest regardles of price range. And yet a lot of them can't even peak SATA3's sequential speeds in both directions...

Meh, all depends on your work load and whats going be done with the drive.

99% of users do not need a 5 year warranty.

Lmao and thats why products seem to break just out of warranty so often. Built just cheap enough to last 3 years with average use.
This is either an incomplete product lineup or Samsung took a step backwards.
I always built my PC on the best warranty I could find for a good price. My psu has a 10yr along with an 850 Pro.

Don't sell yourself short because other people might, 3 years is something I expect from a HDD not an SSD from the top manufacturer.

Only SSD ever failed on me was a OCZ drive but they are POS anyways, my Sata 2 Intel SSD's are working 100% and there is no reason to think my Samsung's will fail any time soon.

3 years is a good number and better than a lot of others, you do pay for the extra warranty so yeah it means some thing to me but the extra cost for a 5 year warranty , no thanks.

Maybe they have a plan to release some thing later but we will have to see. but most users don't need it.

I preferred them using EVO and PRO to identify the tiers of card. It was stupid simple for everyone.

That's mostly due to the overhead of the SATA protocol, it's not physically possible to ever see 600MB/s from a SATA3 link.

I'm talking 550MB/s. Most cheap drives write at like 300MB/s if lucky...
