The 250GB Samsung 850 Evo has a similar architecture to its hugely successful predecessor, the 840 Evo. Both drives are TLC based but the 850 uses 3D V-NAND as opposed to regular NAND. Both drives also feature a Turbowrite cache (TWC) which buffers up to 3GB of writes. The TWC enables high burst write speeds but when the cache exhausts write speeds drop to 300 MB/s. Comparing the 850 and 840 Evos shows that effective speed, has improved by 11% and the warranty has been extended from three to five years but prices are also up by 11%. The 850 Evo does put in superb benchmarks (second only to the 850 Pro) but these are only valid within the TWC. At current price levels the 850 Evo struggles to compete with the value leaders[Dec '14 SSDrivePro]

The Sandisk Ultra II sits above Sandisk's Ultra Plus and below their Extreme Pro. The Ultra Plus would probably have been phased out completely were it not for its continued success within budget space. The Ultra II is the first Sandisk drive to utilize cheaper (and slower) TLC NAND. Similarly to the Extreme Pro, the Ultra II utilizes an nCache which operates a portion of the NAND in simulated SLC mode. This strategy also matches the one employed by Samsung's now 14 months old Evo. Comparing the Ultra II and Evo shows broad performance equivalence which given the Ultra II's 15% price discount makes it the better choice today. That said it's probably worth waiting for the release of the 850 Evo which will pack another 14 months of Samsung's market leading R&D and will probably steal the show. [Sep '14 SSDrivePro]
