Samsung\u2019s High Speed 4TB SSD is a promise fulfilled. When Samsung first released their first-ever 1TB flash chip, they said that massive SSD storage devices were on the horizon\u2014and they weren\u2019t kidding. The 4TB SSDs use 4-bit V-NAND memory technology, which use QLC quad-level cells to pack in more memory in the same space that old 3-bit cells did without losing operating speed. The new 4TB SATA-based SSDs measure only 2.5 inches, but they can read data and 540 MB per second and write data at 520 MB per second. At those speeds, capturing and playing back 4K video files is no problem.\r\n\r\nSamsung also plans to release 1TB and 2TB SATA SSDs later this year along with M.2 NVMe drives. Samsung is billing these storage devices as consumer class, but prices haven\u2019t been released. Considering that their 4TB solid state drives were listed at $1,499, for these new drives to be considered consumer class there is plenty of room to cover. While price may be dropping, before you drop your hard earned cash on these drives, you might want to be aware that industry experts are reporting that these drives may not last as many read\/write cycles as the more expensive 3-bit drives. As an amateur using it for home projects, that shouldn\u2019t be a problem. But if you\u2019re looking for a more industrial approach\u2014something where the drive will be used over and over again\u2014you may want to invest on a more expensive unit.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
