Samsung 860 QVO 4TB SSD Review

 
The Samsung SSD 860 QVO 4TB ships in a compact black box with an image of the drive on the front, along with information about the drive – including the fact that it uses V-NAND and has a SATA 6Gb/s interface. There is also sticker on the top left of the box which indicates the capacity of the drive.

The rear of the box has multilingual marketing notes and points out the fact the drive has a 3 year limited warranty.


The drive sits in a tray to keep it secure during transit, and the only other thing in the box is an installation/warranty guide that sits on top of it.

 
The drive is built on the standard 2.5in format and has a metal enclosure held in place by three pentalobe screws, two of which are hidden under the label on the rear of the drive. Be warned, ripping off the label to get at the screws will void the drive’s warranty.


 
Two 1TB NAND packages (coded K9XVGB8J1M) occupy one side of the PCB along with the Samsung MJX (S4LR030) 8-channel controller and the 4GB LPDDR4 cache IC. On the other side of the PCB we find another two NAND packages.
