Samsung unveiled its new consumer solid state drive (SSD) lineup, the 860 QVO SSD, featuring up to four terabytes of storage capacity. Built on the company’s high-density 4-bit MLC NAND flash architecture, the 860 QVO makes terabyte capacities more accessible to the masses at approachable price points.

“Today’s consumers are using, producing and storing more high-resolution files than ever, including 4K videos and graphics-intensive games, escalating demand for greater capacities and performance in storage devices,” said Mike Mang, vice president of Brand Product Marketing. “Samsung continues to lead the move toward multi-terabyte SSDs with the introduction of the Samsung 860 QVO, delivering fast performance, reliability and value to more consumers around the world.”

Mainstream PC users handling large multi-media content often need to upgrade their PC’s storage to improve everyday computing experience. Based on the commonly used SATA interface and 2.5-inch form factor, the 860 QVO fits in most standard laptops or desktops. Also, by offering both high capacity and performance in a single drive, the 860 QVO eliminates the need to use a combination of an SSD and an HDD for booting and storage.

Featuring sequential read and write speeds of up to 550 MB/s and 520 MB/s, respectively, the 860 QVO achieves the same level of performance as today’s 3-bit MLC SSD. The drive is also integrated with Intelligent TurboWrite technology, which helps to accelerate speeds while maintaining high performance for longer periods of time.

Samsung also provides a total byte written based on a thorough analysis of consumers’ SSD usage patterns: a three-year limited warranty or up to 1,440 terabytes written for the 4TB version, and 720 TBW and 360 TBW for the 2TB and 1TB versions, respectively. The 860 QVO will be available globally this month, with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price starting at $149.99 for the 1TB model.
