1. Games - When it comes to gaming, having an SSD dramatically decreased load times for most newer games. Old games are not really affected due to how little data most of them need to load from the hard drive in today's standards. The biggest improvement came with Star Citizen. SC is still in super alpha, so nothing is optimized and load times are outrageous. Were outrageous. It used to take me nearly 2 minutes to load into hangar, now with the 850 pro, its less than 30 seconds. Other games such as Planetside 2, Mad Max, Homeworld etc have also vastly improved loading times. And its not just load times that are improved. In some games such as GTA San Andreas you can move into a new area faster than the hard drive can load things like building textures and pedestrians. The SSD solves this, no more do things just pop into existence beside you. Skyrim also has a bit of this problem too if you use a mod to give you a fast ride. Overall in the gaming department, this is really where the SSD shines to me. 2. System and Software - Windows startup time is also another area that shines brightly with an SSD. Traditional hard drive takes 1 minute or more to boot, sometimes 45 seconds if you got a good drive and a fresh install of windows. With the 850 pro, my fully loaded Windows 10 Pro OS can boot up in 22 seconds. That's with no password and such. 22 seconds from power button to mouse moving on desktop. The system tray icons at the bottom right of the desktop used to take 2 or 3 minutes for all of them to load up after arriving to the desktop, now with the 850 pro they all pop up simultaneously and instantly. My web browser, Firefox, used to take about 2 or 3 seconds to load up after clicking, now before my ear can even register the second click of the mouse, the browser is fully loaded and ready to go. I have also noticed greatly increased performance in Microsoft office programs, especially excel and power point. Then came the real software test. WinRar. As a winrar test i packed up 10 GB of music to test speeds. It took less than a minute to package up (compress) the 10 GB using the Best compression method, where as on a traditional hard drive your looking at 30 to 45 minutes of waiting maybe even more since i used the best method. Unpackaging (decompression) was instantaneous at the click of the mouse. Every thing i do is like a flash of light. 3. Music and Movies - Not much to say here other than transfer speeds are high, but i wouldn't keep music or movies on an SSD, they don't play better or sound better, but they do take up limited space and put wear and tear on the drive. Best to leave them on the traditional hard drive. 4. Benchmark - I have included a screenshot of the benchmarking program i used to test this hard drive. As you can see all test results exceed the specifications of this hard drive. I could to many different tests using many different settings but i stuck with the default and most used one. Construction - The SSD's construction is very nice. It is very strong and solid, but also very light almost like paper. It is very smooth and slim and should fit nearly anywhere you want to put it. Also the sata and power connectors are stiff and strong. Software - The samsung magician software that is paired with the hard drive is also very nice. It shows the health and total data written to the hard drive, can change windows options to better suit the SSD and its needs, encryption, the works. The only thing is that Rapid Mode does not work for windows 10 yet but Samsung says they are working hard on it, it has something to do with the new way windows 10 manages memory. Conclusion - Overall, this is the greatest hard drive Ive ever seen. Its super fast, super strong, has great software, and is backed up by a monster 10 year warranty. I looked forward to many years of extreme gaming with this SSD. I would highly haft to recommend this SSD to everyone. It is a truly great product made by a great company from a great nation. You wont be disappointed with this SSD.

I was really happy with this drive because of its Lightning speed. Boot up times are awesome in my Windows 7 laptop. Everything seem find until two weeks when I went to start the laptop and it would not boot up. After trying several things, I had a co-worker analyze the drive. The analysis software only showed about 137Gb of the 500. That is when I called Samsung. Samsung told me that the failure was due to a firmware update. They send me another drive. But nonetheless, I lost a lot work from the previous days that that had not been backed up.

        This SSD works really well for my custom built PC. It makes everything run smoothly and was easy to install. I would recommend this to anyone. Kind of wish I got a 500GB or more but maybe in the future.

              I beefed up my MacBook pro 2010 model with 2 of these and running a virtualize machine with windows on it and using parallels at the same time. i can say the speed makes a huge difference until now. Lets hope it gives the performance it will as I read many reviews and this is worth the investment.

                    Excellent product. I read previous reviews and this was the SSD with the best reviews, and I can see why. The migration software was excellent and I was able to replace my existing HDD with no issues at all. This drive is fast....probably 3 times faster than my 1 Tb HDD. And it comes with a 10 year warranty! I would highly recommend.

                                    I spent about a year reviewing many SSD's and settled on the SSD 850 PRO 2.5" SATA III 256GB. Setup was easy with the supplied migration software. The "Magician" software is simple to use, too, by the way. In other words, the "changeover" for me was painless. As for speed, I can't speak more highly of the performance increase. Boot is half the time (60 seconds now). Thunderbird is my email client and it used to take about 60 seconds to make a guest appearance. Now it takes about 10 seconds. Navigating from program to program is so much quicker and response to various inputs are crispy quick. Keep in mind that since this laptop is 8 years old, its hardware is not capable of the speeds the SSD is capable of (about half the capability of the SSD is really being utilized). That's ok because the SSD made a huge difference in performance and I love it. In summary, I'm very happy I purchased this SSD and would highly recommend it to those considering a SSD.

                                        Pros: Very fast startup, Very easy to install using Samsung's Data Migration Software. I installed the 850 PRO by migrating my boot HDD to the 850 PRO and replacing the HDD (my C: drive) with the much faster 850 PRO. Everything went very smoothly in my Windows 10 AMD desktop. Cons: Samsung could do a better job on instructing the user on how to prepare the system prior to the start of data migration. For example there should be a set of instructions informing the user to make sure the AHCI driver is loaded on the Windows 10 system prior to the start of data migration. If you don't use AHCI you will not get the maximum performance from your ssd. If you install the AHCI driver after migrating the data to the ssd and then replacing the hdd with the ssd, you may lose the ability to boot the computer from the ssd. Windows 10 does not install the AHCI driver in a fresh install of Windows 10. Samsung should have step by step instructions on what to do to make sure we get best performance for which the ssd was designed.

                                            This SSD is the best among comparable product especially from top tier vendor. It might not be cheapest but comparing the performance and other spec, i personally recommend 850 PRO. Worth it, if your prior consideration is performance, ease and functionality of management software (Samsung Magician). I read a lot of review before buying this SSD and had tried a lot of others. This is currently the best consumer SSD i used in this price range. I am extremely happy with this product.

                                                          I purchased a laptop that had all of the specs that I was looking for with the exception of the 5400RPM HDD. I immediately began searching for a SSD to upgrade. I was reluctant to purchase this because it was priced slightly higher than the competition, however I am glad I did. The performance is amazing! The included software is excellent! I am very happy with my new laptop with this thing installed. The icing on the cake is Samsung's 10-year warranty. I would highly recommend this one over the competition.
