    What is an EVO SSD?


    Things in the SSD world have changed dramatically since I began using them a few years ago. There weren't too many choices then. Now I plan to convert my laptop to one and am amazed to find so many from which to choose.

    My question is what is an EVO SSD and how does it differ from the others?

    Thank you.

    One of Samsung's Lineup: PRO, EVO, Standard,

    I haven't made huge comparisons, but, it's been the best selling SSD on the market for a few years running now.

    What type do you want?
    There are several connector types that SSDs use to interface with a computer, including SATA, PCIe, M.2, U.2, mSATA, SATA Express, and even none, as some SSDs now come soldered to the board. For a consumer, the most common options are SATA and M.2.23

    As Edwin answered it's just a name designation in Samsung's SSD line. The EVO models are just below the Pro's and offer great performance at affordable prices. I have both Pro and EVO drives in my system, and have no regrets with the EVO's.

    And it doesn't matter if they're NVMe (m.2 port) or SATA. Both interfaces come in either Pro or EVO.

    You can see their lineup here - Samsung SSD drives.

    I was using a 850 Evo (120GB) for 2-3 years until I upgraded to a NVME drive, now it gets used for my external HDD on my TV!

    More recently there's been the release of the Evo Plus.
