    News - Samsung has unveiled its first 3D V-NAND SSD products

    That's quick work deploying its 3D V-NAND tech but these are enterprise-only products.

    Samsung seems to be on a roll with their SSD tech as of late. Can't wait to see what these are capable of.

    Samsung seem to be capable of pumping out a new type so SSD every month or so, Bravo Chaps!

    The two drives are "designed for use in enterprise servers and data centres". If you wanted to read that these drives were to be made available for the enthusiast PC market you may be disappointed.
    How are they going to prevent an enthusiast from getting one of these drives - only sell to businesses? Presumably the pricing will dissuade most of the potential non-business users.

    I share your pain - I was looking for a replacement for the spinny rust that I've got my apps on (plus something a bit more modern than my two-year old Vertex 2E for the OS drive might be nice). Originally I was going to go for an 830, then the 840, then the 840PRO and now 840EVO, so now 850? It's like a duck shoot! I guess the smart view is to judge whether the price/performance is good enough and if so, then buy. After all, there will ALWAYS be something faster/larger/cheaper coming along if you wait long enough.

    And then there's the nice-to-have's. E.g. should my replacement "apps" drive be a 256GB which'll be just large enough, or a slower 500GB drive that'll give me plenty of space for more Steam "special offers". Then again, surely even a "slow" (e.g. 840 standard) SSD will still be a heck of a lot faster than a conventional HDD.

    Nevertheless, at the rate Sammy seem to be pushing, the consumer V-NANDers should be announced by the end of the month!

    I imagine they'll be priced with business users in mind, so in other words, pretty expensive. That in itself will put off a lot of enthusiast users. If they're optimised for servers though, they probably won't be all that suited to enthusiast client-centred needs anyway...servers need reliability & consistency rather than pure IO.
