The Samsung 850 Pro SSD is slated for a mid-July release, with MSRP / price as:

 

120/128GB: $130

240/256GB: $230

480/512GB: $430

960GB/1TB: $730

The MSRP has now been updated:

  • 128GB - $129.99 USD ($1.02/GB)
  • 256GB - $199.99 USD ($0.78/GB)
  • 512GB - $399.99 USD ($0.78/GB)
  • 1TB     - $699.99 USD ($0.68/GB)

 

For comparison, these are the current prices on the EVO line:

  • 120GB - $86.39 USD ($0.72/GB)
  • 250GB - $ 129.99USD ($0.52/GB)
  • 500GB - $ 254.99USD ($0.51/GB)
  • 1TB     - $429.25 USD ($0.43/GB)

 

I have to say, for a high end drive with a brand new type of flash and such a ridiculously long warranty and high consistency, those prices are really good.

The prices are basically the same as the current PRO series. Personally I would be willing to sacrifice the extra endurance and speed for twice the capacity (for example the 500GB EVO for 50 dollars more than the 256GB 850) but we will hopefully see an 850 EVO soon. Another major plus for the 850 compared to the EVO is that it supports eDrive, so you can run BitLocker with next to no performance impact at all.

 

 

Now we just have to wait for Samsung to make a SATA Express version with NVMe and preferably a next gen controller as well.

Can't wait to see this technology work it's way to other types of flash based memory like RAM or VRAM

This won't come to RAM since they work in fundamentally different ways and therefore don't suffer from the same weaknesses.

This might come to SD cards, USB memory sticks and the flash used in phones and tablets though. but there won't be that much of a benefit since endurance is not really a concern for those things anyway.

Might not be exactly the same, however for instance Nvidia's upcoming Pascal architecture will feature "3D Memory" which I think is essentially the same as Samsung's vertical NAND, or at least very similar technology

I read the Anandtech review.

I'm actually considering buying the 256GB model. The price premium is not that bad and 3D nand is awesome.

An expensive step forward in the short term, but a good long-term investment. I was hoping for better random performance, but it seems like an incremental performance jump.

 

An 850 right now, at $.75/GB - $1/GB, carries an early adopter premium. I'm excited for the second generation of products.

I'll probably pick up an 850 Pro 1TB next month. The EVO series offers a great price to performance ratio, but, for me, reliability and stability have always been by far the most important factor when selecting a solid-state drive. You'd be hard-pressed to discern the performance difference between a current 840 Pro with RAPID enabled and a cheap, bottom of the barrel OCZ in a real-life usage scenario, but the reliability/stability difference is beyond measure. When it comes to the device that stores my data, even if I'm just using it as a boot drive, I don't mind paying a premium for MLC, 3D NAND, and a ten-year warranty. I've always been waiting for the Pro series to become available in 1TB capacities. Now I just need ADATA to release their 2TB solid-state drive so I can use it for storage and dispense with mechanical hard disk drives altogether.

$199 for the 256gb model? That's good, the 840 Pro is around that price and up.
