Drop in replacement for classic 7mm mechanical disk drive that improves performance of even an older laptop. Boot times now less than a minute and switching between apps smooth and fast. Performance would have been even better if AHCI functionality available. Cloning of active partition smooth once version 3 of software downloaded. A checklist of pre clone and after install actions would be helpful (i.e. remove unused programs, clean register, defrag multiple times, then after install; enable TRIM, turn off scheduled defrag, download and install Samsung Magician...) At the first sign of problems with HDD in other laptops, I'll buy and install another Samsung 850 EVO.

Good product, but I bought this product for the rapid feature with the ram. I have always enjoyed most of my electronics from Samsung. This is a good SSD, but if you buy it to enable rapid mode, be aware it would not let me enable it in Windows 10. All of the required things to have to enable rapid mode are detected, except I get the error," Unable to determine operating system". It's not checked green like the other requirements. I have installed two separate versions of the software to enable this to no avail. I just purchased it, and haven't gotten to tech support yet. Samsung has great tech support, so I am sure they will fix this issue for me. I will update my ratings after they have been notified, and a resolution determined. Meanwhile, I just purchased their 34" curvy, gorgeous, fuse with your soul S34E790C monitor, and can't wait until it arrives!

              this drive was easy to install, it comes with the disk to migrate your OP system from your old Drive be it HDD or SSD . so cloning is a snap. and super fast upgrade for my Tower that had been running Raptor X 10k speeds which I had thought was fast, this is faster and makes no noise like a HDD. great purchase

              The difference in my desktop's performace between my relatively new hard drive, and this SSD is amazing. Windows 10 boots up in less than 10 seconds, there is no hard drive whine, very nice. I wish I had made this upgrade a long time ago.

                              Years ago I purchased a Samsung EVO 128gb Solid State Drive to act as my computers OS disk and over time it was amazing. I however needed a larger disk to handle multiple OS and chose a brand that I knew would work. The install was simplistic and fast.... around 25 mins.

                                    Samsung drives have always been a go to for upgrade solutions when building machines or upgrading internal storage. The easy design and form factor contributes to easy installation. As a Mac user, it would be nice to get better support and tools like the Magician Software available to easily upgrade Firmware and provide other performance enhancements.

                                            My Apple Mac Mini (late 2012) is hard-used and lately it's been suffering a bit performance-wise so I thought I'd replace its hard drive with an SSD one. I researched the different ones available from different manufacturers and I settled on this one because of the great reviews and longer warranty period. I installed it fairly easily and vroooom! The Mini's performance blows away what it was when it was new! I'm very pleased with it so far.

                                                        Hefty price for a top of the line SSD but worth the price when considering the 5 year warranty it comes with.

                                                                The Samsung 850 EVO is a very decent drive, containing many features that would satisfy many. The drive is one of the fastest of its competition, with the addition of being much more reliable than the competing TLC drives, and comparable to much more expensive MLC drives. What can I say? You have all the benefits of a traditional SSD such as the higher shock resistance, the lower power consumption, the eliminated noise of a hard drive motor, and of course, the speed.
