    Awesome ssd. However... not as easy to install. You have to down load data migration and magician from the Internet. Should come with instructions. Also... it did not shut down regular had drove. It kept crashing. Had to disconnect had drive. Then boot up.

        My laptop's performance was greatly improved after installing this SSD. Extremely easy to install and Samsung provides with great cloning software to help you clone your existing hard drive. Could not be more happy with it!

                Based on current market of SSD, this is the best M.2 AHCI ssd money can buy. With latest intel skull canyon I get full speed specified by Samsung. Happy that Samsung has 1TB version available if I need more space. If your motherboard or BIOS support NVMe then you should get 950 pro. I highly recommend this SSD.

                  I am a professional aerospace engineer for hardware and software. as such, my work challenges my development hardware often up to and beyond the published specs. these evo ssd's of which i currently have 10 in constant use have provided me with the ability to compile, store, manipulate data in truly an outstanding and highly reliable fashion for a large, complex, and interrelated cross-platform project that involves all the latest windows, mac, and linux servers and their companion workstations. from machine language to c/c++ to c# to java, to sql, to html5 and some proprietary systems i have enjoyed a development lab that is virtually quiet and certainly cooler than when my equipment used rotational storage devices. i have taken the time to compare the speed between my older development and the current setups. i have re-compiled and compared the overall completion times and find that in every (my specific) case my overall time to completion is simply faster even on some of my older, much slower processors. i heartily recommend these units to even the most casual user. i have a batch of the (even faster) EVO 512's coming for an extension of the current development and am expecting to be even more pleased with these Samsung products. (not sure this is appropriate but i have tested other manufacturer's products and have chosen Samsung for the final production deliveries).

                            Upgrading to the Samsung SSD 850 EVO M.2 500GB is the best thing that ever happened for my laptop. Apps load blazingly fast. The increase in performance is immediately noticeable. The only hassle is that it does not come with a M.2 mounting screw. And to my luck, my laptop also does not have a M.2 screw in the mounting screw hole of its M.2 slot. So I had to procure a separate M.2 screw which was a bit of a hassle. Data migration was a bit tricky since the Samsung Data Migration Tool was not able to clone the recovery partition of my old hard disk. Kinda disappointed about that, but it's not much of a big deal since I was able to make a workaround by creating a recovery USB using Windows 10's "Create USB Recovery" app. Overall though, I am very satisfied with the product. I'm never settling for those old, rattling, heavy hard disks again. Ever.

                                                I wanted to go with a slightly faster m.2 SSD for my new build but the budget got in the way. That said, this one has been brilliant. My system loads so fast I don't have time to do anything else. access to my files is instant and long load times on games is a distant memory. For a balance of value, performance, and reliability, this is one fantastic choice.

                                                  Read so many reviews and decided to go with Samsung Evo SSD M.2 to upgrade my storage for my laptop. Booting is 3x faster than my previous HDD. Overall great product and price.

                                                    I had still been using traditional hard drives before now and had no idea what I was missing. A few months ago I built a new system based around an Intel 4790k CPU(with liquid cooling), 16GB 1866MHz memory, 2x GTX970 in SLI, and a plain old hard drive, a Western Digital 2TB Caviar Black that I had already owned a few years. I was well aware the HDD was the main bottleneck in my system but really underestimated how much it was holding it back from it's true potential. When I installed the 850 EVO 500GB M.2, I figured I was do for a clean install of Windows anyways and wanted to try out Windows 10 so that's what I did. It's a hair longer now, but when it was a completely clean installation with nothing installed other than drivers, it booted to my desktop in 7 seconds. Compared to probably two minutes or more(never really timed it) on my previous Windows 7 installation. I was sold on SSD's right there. Even when running programs installed on my other hard drives, everything feels smoother and more responsive. Games load amazingly fast and there's no more occasional slowdowns as part of a map is loaded or the like. I plan to in the near future get another SSD and have everything other than movies, music, pictures, and the like on something solid state. So basically, if you have a moderately decent system but still use a traditional HDD, get yourself an SSD. It'll feel like a new computer and like myself, you'll probably end up wondering why you didn't do so long ago.
