I bought a desktop tower in September 2012. It had a 2GB HDD and 10GB of RAM. It has always been extremely reliable and fast - compared to my previous system anyway. But some people aren't always satisfied with the status quo, eh? So, among several tweaks in the past (nearly) 4 years I have upgraded to 16GB of RAM, added a 1TB drive in the swap bay, added a second monitor, blah blah blah. I was never convinced my boot disk was doing me justice. I have a boatload of goodies loading at boot time so I just lived with waiting nearly 2-3 minutes for booting to complete. A few months ago I discovered it was actually a SATA II disk, and being plugged into my only SATA III port wasn't much of a treat. My Windows 7 "Windows Experience Index" assessment ALWAYS rated disk performance at 5.9 - lowest of all the categories. The highest ratings were 7.7 thanks to an i7-3770 Quad Core processor. So, I bought a 2TB "SSHD" disk. It was SATA III and the WEI was still 5.9. (That disk is now my data disk with a dedicated partition for the page file, and two rather large data partitions and the original 2TB drive is in an external USB enclosure.) Anyway, I remained obtuse about getting an SSD. To be honest, my biggest concern about changing my boot disk was its size - and a 1 or 2 TB SSD was just not something I felt was necessary. After all, my original 2TB disk was only using 257(ish) GB's when I cloned it to the new 2TB SSHD. So I bought a new 1TB SSHD, thinking THAT would be all I needed for boot time (and overall performance) bliss. It wasn't. Still multi-minute booting. Still a 5.9 WEI rating. For the record, everything I am writing about with regard to changing my boot disk was done with Windows 7's built in "Backup and Restore" functions. As I changed from the 2TB SSHD to the 1TB SSHD, it was necessary that the C: partition be shrunk to under 1TB so as to accommodate the 18GB Recovery partition and the 100MB System Reserved partition. Windows' built in imaging tool takes care of those quite well, but when writing a backed up image to a new drive, you must make sure everything will fit. The restore function will create the partitions exactly as copied in the image, so if everything in the image takes up less space on a new drive there will be unallocated space after the C: partition, which can come in handy for over provisioning. Moving on, the new 1TB SSHD did not make much difference. My system had always taken a couple of minutes to boot and I attributed it to all the stuff I have loading at startup. Even though I was never actually dissatisfied with my computer's performance after it got going I was still curious about getting super fast boot time with an SSD. Curious enough that I decided to move all the "My" folders off the C: drive. I chose to move all the folders in my User directory that had a "Location" tab in their Properties box. They are, alphabetically: Contacts; Desktop; Downloads; Favorites, Links. My Documents, My Music. My Pictures, My Videos and Saved Games. I wasn't inclined to have some on C: and some elsewhere. This was done on 7/24/16 - and I've had no issues at all. My initial reason to move this data was to reduce the amount of data in C: so that an image would be as small as possible, thus making the purchase of a smaller SSD justifiable. I know - for what I spent on replacing the original 2TB drive I could have easily gotten at least a 500GB SSD. Well, let's just say I have plenty of external storage. Now, after moving my user data (NOT my user profile and NOT the App Data) the amount of data on the C: drive was about 75GB. What? After nearly 4 years of running Windows 7, the OS and installed programs and app data (was 75GB? Why had I run my system on a 2TB disk all this time? Live and learn, I suppose. So - here I was with 75GB of necessary info on a 1TB drive. Obviously I would have to shrink the C: partition if there was to be any chance of writing an image that would fit on a much smaller SSD. My first thoughts were of maybe going with a 120GB since 75GB was all I needed for a running system. But research told me SSD's need space to manage themselves, and I knew 120GB advertised would not be 120GB usable. So it seemed like a safe bet to zero in on 250BG models. With as many positive reviews as there are on Samsung's EVO line, it became a done deal in my mind. Thus, this review. For informational purposes, the "Shrink Volume" function in Disk Management isn't always going to get you where you want to be, but with some help, it can. I used Auslogics Disk Defrag - AND - PerfectDisk to finally reach the desired size of the image that would be used to create the C: partition on my new SSD. PerfectDisk has a lot of options and it wasn't exactly intuitive but I did a couple of boot time defrags with the "Prep For Shrink" option and then I let it run overnight with what I believe was the "Consolidate Free Space" function. I think I also checked the option somewhere that says "Aggressively Consolidate Free Space" so I might be able to shrink to a very manageable image size. For what it's worth, even if you see a defragmenter's "map" of files showing unmovable files (the bane of "Shrink Volume" happiness), go ahead and start the Shrink Volume process in Disk Management. It very well might move some system files during the actual shrink process. It will always show you what size it can shrink to without changing anything. I can assure you I was shocked when I finally saw I could shrink my C: volume to 74.4GB. I wrote that image immediately. And so, my system is now booting in under 30 seconds! It still loads bunches of things so I am not worried at all that it COULD be faster. By the way, I count the boot time from the moment (second?) the BIOS/Boot Options screen disappears since its duration can be set by us humans. Oh, and the Windows Experience Index rating for disk performance, which was 5.9 since the first day I ran it in 2012 - it's now 7.9 - higher than the 7.7 the processor and RAM always get. WooHoo! I love this thing! Lastly (to make a really long "review" even longer) - whatever you do when you decide you want a new boot disk - create a system image of the system as it exists BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING - just to be safe. And if you reach points where you can make an even smaller image - do it. Just try to have a couple of different drives to write your images to. Good luck!

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!

        The 850 EVO series is still a great group of SSDs, with performance far exceeding standard HDDs. The price points are still a little high, especially with better/faster SSD families out now, like the 950 and 960.

                                        I have had this drive for almost one year. Since day one this drive has been a little "flakey", occasionally not starting up. My laptop would give an error saying no boot device present. (No hard drive found!) Power cycling would bring it back. Now these start up failures are becoming more frequent and have probably reached the 50/50 point, and trending towards total failure. I am going to RMA it before it fails to start up at all. Sorry to say I will not ever really trust the replacement as I really do not use my laptop that often and I doubt even one terabyte of data has actually been transferred on and off this drive. I do not recommend buying these drives or any in the EVO series as they all probably suffer the same reliability issue.

                                              This is my 4th Samsung EVO SSD. I am very satisfied with all of them. This SSD is super fast, I bought it to replace my new laptop's hard disk, at a fraction of the manufacturer's SSD upgrade price, and I still have the original 2.5" HDD too. If I was upgrading my laptop to Samsung SSD, that laptop became much faster, the boot times are almost uncomparably faster with this SSD. Thank you Samsung for this great product. I would buy it again!

                                                      1. Experience - WOW!!!!! The boot time with all my startup software runs about five times faster with this SSD compared to my old HDD, and that means I don't have to wait as long to start using my PC. 2. Experience - Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!! My antivirus scan used to take 90 minutes with my old HDD. It now completes in just 12 minutes with this SSD. 3. Advice - Use the Samsung Data Migration software to clone your HDD over to this SSD. It works great and you don't need anything else. 4. Advice - Tweak this SSD using the Samsung Magician software for better performance based on the way you want to use the drive in the future.
