FAST! I have this installed in an external mSata enclosure connected to my computer via usb 3.0 cable. Rather than extra storage, I cloned my OS to the drive and run my system through it with zero issues. I'm recording speeds of 370 write and 430 reads, much faster than my internal 5,400rpm SATA hard drive, which gave me only 60/75 read/write speeds. Best bang for your buck if you're looking for a super small SSD for portable storage, and probably better if you install internally.

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 and decided to give an overhaul to my old laptop, increased the amount of RAM and decided to switch to a solid state drive and picked this particular model because of Samsung's reputation, its features and a fair price. It turns out that the migration software does not recognize the solid state drive and when I contacted Samsung tech support they said the software does not support Windows 10, that I should get a third party software that supports Windows 10 or wait until Samsung releases a Windows 10 compatible version of the migration software, hopefully some time this month

          Comments about Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB Internal Solid State Drive:

          I bought the Samsung EVO 850 500 GB msata drive to upgrade from a 128 GB drive in my computer. I used the Samsung Data Migration software to clone the new disk using a USB 3.0 drive enclosure. The software could not have been easier to use and 40 minutes later I had a new 500GB drive in my computer. I did not even have to format the new drive because the software took care of that. I am a very happy customer.

                  I've had this M.2 drive for like 2 months and the speeds exceeds my expectation. I don't know if there's anyone else getting such speed but I find my drive to be exceeding the set standards. Saves me lots of time when I'm running big data reports on crystal reports and sql queries as well.

                                    Product is excellent. With purchase of USB 3.0 enclosure (not included with the product) and using Samsung migration tool I was able to clone and install the SSD without any problem. Though it took very long for 250gig SSD to clone using USB 3.0 enclosure. Overall I am satisfied with the product.

                                                I installed the 850 EVO SSD as my boot drive, as I wanted the speed. I used the Samsung migration software to copy the data and operating system, it worked with no problems. You also get software to speed up your drive. But you have to be careful of the adapter you buy to install it in your PC drive bay. Some of therm don't fit the SSD.
