Samsung Reveals 860 Pro 4TB SSD on its Website Listing

Samsung has unwittingly released some specs and product images of the as of yet unannounced SSD product. The 860 Pro SSD carries the model number MZ-76P4T0E, and has a pretty impressive 4 TB capacity that's sure to deliver the highest performance possible on the SATA III interface. The stated performance levels stand at 560 MB/s read speeds, and 530 MB/s write, which should be more than enough for most usage tasks. Pricing is also more than enough, and then some; Samsung is quoting a $1,899 pricing for this particular drive.

And yet still no fix for the borked 960 Pro firmware remedy. Would not be buying Sammy SSD any time soon. I'd rather go Crucial or Intel for now.
Or you can just not upgrade to the latest.

Going forward, let others try out updates 2-4 weeks before you dive in. I apply this practice to everything from graphics drivers to WSUS updates at work. It works well.

Can't you just flash back to the old firmware?

Finally SSD capacities are catching up with HHD counterpart but prices remain high.

You can get the enterprise version from crucial for less: http://www.serversdirect.com/about-us/partners/crucial

3.8TB 5100 is $1650 and that gives you full power protection.
The 5100 series is the enterprise version of the MX300 (and the Micron 1100 series). The MX500 is quite different, with different controller (Silicon Motion, instead of Marvell) and firmware.

And in consumer workloads you get 0 benefit from what the 5100 brings. You get 10 times the endurance (almost definitely overkill for a normal PC), and better power protection. But sacrifice overall performance, power consumption in idle (which is what a normal PC does most of the time), and things like the SLC cache. I know enterprise sounds cool but you're better off with a much cheaper (by ~$400) 4TB Samsung 850 EVO. I moved from a 5100 PRO to an 840 EVO (workstation usage) and I'm pleased with the improvement.

Right tool for the right job I guess.

If an ssd is not NVMe but SATA 6GB/s, the SSD is already maxed out really for read/write speeds. Next step up is NVMe which uses pcie lanes to deliver faster speeds.
