samsung_ssdSamsung has released:
Samsung Data Migration Software v2.7
Samsung Magician Software v4.4

Samsung SSD 850 Pro is out and seems to be awesome:

To be honest, there is not a single thing missing in the 850 Pro because regardless of the angle you look at the drive from, it it will still top the charts.
