I just wrote a long review of the Sandisk Extreme Pro 480GB, which I bought 2 of just before this model was released. I've now had two of these for about a week and I thought I'd compare them, because until these become available the Sandisks were what I was buying for performance.

First, I haven't done a controlled performance test of these drives. However, if you check some of the good review sites (like anandtech dot com) and others, you'll find that the tested performance is almost identical. They are both very fine drives, and both have 10-yr warranties, which is a marketing issue, as you're unlikely to be using this in 10 years any way.

At this point, I will continue to buy this one rather than the equivalent Sandisk Extreme Pro. First, it has more space as Samsung allows the entire 512GB to be used, whereas Sandisk only allows 480GB as they are reserving the difference for 'over-provisioning' whereby they have spare sectors to be used when (as happens with...Read more

The manufacturer commented on the review belowSee comments I bought my 850 Pro back in November of 2014. I also installed Samsung Magician software. The drive has been running extremely well. Magician notified me of a firmware update a few days ago and I went ahead with the update. This morning I received the dreaded I/O boot error. After 2 hours of troubleshooting connected devices and cables, etc., I zeroed in on the drive. Dead. I called Samsung, and before I told tech the reason for my call, he started talking about processing an rma. He knew. Apparently the latest firmware update has nuked 850 Pro drives when the update is installed through Samsung Magician software. I am going to replace the drive and leave the firmware alone. In fact, I have found there really is no need to install the Samsung Magician software at all.====02/25/2105: Just a follow up note to state the obvious. If you own the 850 Pro and have Samsung Magician software installed and decided to update to the most recent firmware version through the software,...Read more
