The difference in price is quite big between them where I live, 150€ difference betweem 1TB 850 Evo and Pro which I would like to get. I'm also going to get a 256GB for OS, for OS there shouldn't be much difference between Evo and Pro I guess?


As you can see in the following link, the performance difference is marginal between the two.

The real difference between the two is that the 850pro uses MLC instead of the 850evo TLC. This means that the 850pro has a better theoretical performance (we have already seen that it is not significant), greater durability and higher price.

The issue of durability is reflected in the amount of warranty that Samsung gives for these units: 10 years for the 850pro and 5 years for the 850evo.

I recommend you read this, too.

I hope I've helped.

All the best.
