SSD sizes are becoming larger and larger nowadays.

That being said, Samsung, known as one of the world’s most popular and successful brands has introduced a whopping 4-Terabyte version of their famous 850 EVO SSD Series.

Compared with a traditional Hard Drive, an SSD is significantly smaller, faster, and can be positioned literally in anyway possible since that it has no moving parts. Here Samsung releases it’s newest 4TB SSD at around $1499 and it has a read and write speed performance of up to 540MB/s and 520MB/s, respectively.


 

Despite it’s high price tag, SSDs are traditionally expensive than traditional Hard Drives due to several reasons such as the lack of moving parts, faster boot times, faster loading of data, and an overall faster experience among others. For 4-TeraBytes of space, you can expect your PC running faster compared to a standard Hard Drive with the same capacity. This is useful for video-editors, data managers, software developers, and the like.

The SSD has a 5-Year Global Warranty with a retail price of $1499 (roughly Php60,000 – Php70,000), and is available at Amazon and NewEgg this July 31st.

    Really? That’s the reason why it’s expensive? So the higher manufacturing cost and recovery of R&D are in the category of “among others? “
