Samsung PM863 SATA 960GB Enterprise SSD Review



We’ve just posted the following review: Samsung PM863 SATA 960GB Enterprise SSD Review[newsimage][/newsimage]

Welcome to Myce’s review of the Samsung PM863 Enterprise SSD.

The PM863 is available in capacities of 120, 240, 480, 960, 1,920, and 3,840GB. The 960 GB drive is the subject of this review.

Logically, the PM863 replaces the 845DC EVO in Samsung’s product portfolio. The PM863 introduces the use of 32 Layer, 3D TLC V-NAND (another first for Samsung) whereas the 845DC EVO used 2D TLC NAND.

Will the PM863 improve upon the 845DC EVO which we awarded our ‘Outstanding’ rating? Please read on to find out.

Love the review JR. Even though I have no use for an Enterprise SSD, I can see their usefulness in the server space and this one looks to be great for small or medium size servers. There was a time when people looked down upon TLC nand and I never really understood their standpoint. I still do not, I remember when the Samsung EVO 840s first came out , I think @10gbs of writes per day they would last 27 years. I cant even imagine what the ones especially now could last, certainly longer than I am going to live, so TLC nand in my estimation makes SSDs cheaper and to me cheaper is always more appealing when the performance is on par with more expensive nand. Just my thoughts.
