New generation of solid-state drives

Samsung SSD 850 PRO

Starting with SanDisk Extreme PRO and now with Samsung 850 PRO, the new generation of solid-state drives have a 10-year warranty. 10 years... let that sink in for a minute. I do not have any computers that I have used for more than 3 years, let alone 10 years. The only thing with the 10-year warranty is the solid-state disk interface to the motherboard is likely to change in 10 years, but if you do have a problem the manufacture will probably replace it with a modern equivalent, so you may end up with a free upgrade win-win. The manufacturers are finally standing behind their products and then some.

These are the fastest SATA solid states drives on the market. Look at the numbers they are getting very close to the theoretical maximum for SATA 6 Gb/s.

All of our gaming machines going forward will be equipped with the Samsung 850 pro standard.
