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!

    When it was working, it worked great - if only it had lasted. It failed in under a year. The 3-bit cells used in these devices simply do not have the reliability needed. I'm trying a 2-bit cell device now.

          Comments about Samsung 850 EVO 2 TB 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive:

          This drive is huge. It fits in these new, thin laptops. It is sata based which makes it fast and compatible with just about all motherboards out there. What I like most about Samsung drives they come packaged with their "Magician" software to transfer your data, programs and even the operating system. Very nice. This alone has made me continue to use Samsung programs. Oh, this drive is warranted for 5 years - very nice.

              I chose this drive because of friends recommendations and Public Reviews and it doesn't disappoint! The only thing I wished was included was a Case Badge but that doesn't lessen the satisfaction I had when my system and programs loaded and ran so much faster than expected.

              Comments about Samsung 850 EVO 2 TB 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive:

              Even though I am 69 years old with a 7 year old laptop, with minimum computer skills, I was able to easily clone my old hard drive to this Samsung EVO. The software included with the drive performed flawlessly with absolutely no issues. It did take 4.25 hours to complete the data migration. The results so far seem to be good in that the response time on my laptop is significantly faster that with my old HDD.

                          I have an older PC that would take a very long time to boot up Windows 10. Once I copied my boot drive onto my SSD it now boots in about 43 seconds. I am very happy with the results, when I do move on to another PC, I will migrate my SSD to that one to continue it's performance enhancements.

                            Samsung SSD have always been my favorite. They are reliable and fast compare to other company's. This particular one isn't their fastest SSD, but it does more than quick enough for my daily use. I do not have a bench mark result or anything, but in real time personal use I've never had a problem with speed. It boots up really fast from sleep and from off. Great value for the price. Also to note, when I purchased this the prices were lot higher. Now SSD's have came a long way on price so definitely worth upgrade to PRO. This reviews reflects from my purchase couple years ago to how it's still holding up.

                            This product is everything that I read about. Speed of startup is worth it price along with the storage capacity,500 GB. I hate to say this but I could only get part of the installation to work. This was the. the Samsung Magician installed and worked as stated when the SSD was installed and restarted my laptop. After a lot of trial and error I got it to copy my old hard drive. This was the only problem that I got. I would recommend this SSD to anybody.

                                A month ago I purchased the EVO 850 mSATA variant and was so impressed, I decided to upgrade my Corsair Force GS 240GB SSD with this item. Well, I am so glad I did. Not only am I getting a larger SSD (500GB vs 240GB), but one blazing fast SSD and totally a reliable one as well. Now granted I never had any issues with my Corsair, but it just makes a system work better when like products are used alongside one another, and that is what I have experienced with my Samsung drives. The unit arrived in the retail packaging and was a joy to behold. So, am I happy? Very much so, and did I mention the 5 YEAR warranty? YES, 5 years! When I was looking to upgrade my Corsair, I looked at ALL of the top SSD drives, but this one had the BEST warranty! So, I now have 2 Samsung drives (mSATA & SSD) and both have a 5 year warranty. The only other drive I considered was the "PRO" version of this drive, with a "10" Year warranty!! But, after fully reviewing the Pro version against this version, I found them to be almost identical, except for the warranty. So with that said, I couldn't justify the increased cost of the PRO version. So, unless you need a "10" year warranty, this item will serve you perfectly! One happy camper!!!!!

                                    The instructions require the SSD to be installed externally before installation internally. The connection cable was not included. Not having the cable, I could not do that. After installation, the drive needed to be initialized and formatted. The instructions said nothing about that. I do not know how well the drive functions, yet, but instructions need to be upgraded.

                                            I believe this model of SSD is just great for a decent price and to have enough speed. I bought this one to run virtual machines and games from it works great.

                                                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.
