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!

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

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.

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

      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!!!!!

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

          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.

                      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.

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.

                                                    While it worked, there was no issue. Laptop booted fast. IT died after 2 years of moderate use. I think samsung should really look at it from reliability point of view.
