Samsung SAM 850 Pro 256GB 2.5 inch SATA III Solid State Drive

Yes I know about the upcoming 860 series of new SSD drives from Samsung, but most of people would benefit from 850 series as well.

Amazon.de today hasas price 99 eur for 256 GB ssd 850 pro.

I was waiting for a price drop (33% off MRP) so I think it's a good deal.

Combined with excellent support from Amazon and english version of Amazon.de it's a deal for me

Nowhere near lowest price ever. My 500gb 850 pro was bought a couple years ago at 95...
Good price

which is €5.57
I bought a used one last year for £70, which to me was a steal.

This is a good deal, remember they have a 10 year warranty on them too.
Good price, I like it.
If you are saying to ppl ignore the new 860 drive then perhaps they should be purchasing the cheaper 850 evo in place of the pro . I mean who is still gonna be using this in 2023 let alone 2028? (5yrs warranty on evo vs 10yrs on Pro).
I suspect most people would be better off with the evo versions , to go with their cars. (Turbo right on!)

Yes lowest price in the last 18 months - the OP is somewhat over selling this deal but unless you've been living in a cave you must have noticed SSD's have been quite highly priced in the last 18 months and so this is, at least in recent times, the lowest price it's been.....but you're right, not 'lowest price ever'

hey folks, for me it's a steal deal because of shipping too .. Amazon DE has free shipping over 40 eur to my country, Amazon UK charges randomly 6-8£ for 1st item ;-))

btw, I'm in need to upgrade 128GB 840 EVO in my mac for some larger capacity so I think 256 GB would be ok (it's just my system drive). And also looking that price difference of PRO vs EVO is just marginal but perfomance is way different (real world talks with IT guys I admire)

Also one can’t simply wear out this drive under normal work load - 40 GB daily read/write workload over a 10-year period is just too much for normal computer. Plus, 850 PRO series comes with the industry's top-level ten-year limited warranty.

thanks for heats anyway! Enjoy the sunday

btw, Amazon.DE price chart - please don't blame and compare it with local sellers

You sure about that? Never saw the 500GB 850 Pro anywhere near that, even when SSDs were cheap (although the 500GB 850 Evo got to around that price)
I have a pretty old system socket 775 (intel), it has 6 xSATA 3Gb/s ports, (so i'm guessing thats sata 1)

is there any chance of compatibility issues with these older systems? I know I won't get full speed on this system.


system is running windows 7. ASUS P5K Premium motherboard.

sata 3Gb/s ports are sata II, yes you wont get full speed but in the real world i dont think you will feel it? (i.e booting the system)

SATA11 and apart from sequential bandwidth not being maxed out no it shouldn't matter. Latency and IOPS with SSD is the killer feature, rather than raw bandwidth, especially on 4K random.

Suggest you just get a cheaper SSD in your case. You'll notice basically the same speed boost, but won't benefit at all from getting an SSD like this vs cheap one
128Eur now!
