3 out of 5 eggsFast when it works.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO MZ-7KE512BW 2.5" 512GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast drive when it works. Ten year predicted lifespan leads the industry.

Cons: Problems with latest firmware/Samsung Magician interaction--it bricks the drive. Flashing with the ISO works, but only if you know that *before* you brick the drive. Samsung has an extremely poor warranty. My drive failed after a few months and they are giving me a refurbished drive. I opted for express cross-shipping and the process still took a full week and required my credit card despite the fact that I had preregistered the drive. I also had to submit a receipt and photograph of the drive. This was despite the fact that they knew that their firmware bricked my drive and totaled my production system.

Other Thoughts: I bought another one of these drives, but I am going to use the ISO to flash it before I use it. I think Samsung could do a much better job with their product support. My production machine was trashed, and I may never recover many of the programs which will require reactivation.

1 out of 5 eggsBricked after a few months

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO MZ-7KE512BW 2.5" 512GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast when it worked

Cons: Expensive

Firmware update caused it to self destruct
is no longer properly recognized by my motherboard, instead of samsung 850 pro it just says "3"

be wary of firmware updates

Other Thoughts: only buying cheap SSDs from now on

2 out of 5 eggsNot good enough

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO MZ-7KE512BW 2.5" 512GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Magician

Cons: Warranty is awful. Only SSD manufacturer that replaces a fialed drive with a refurb.

Other Thoughts: Stick with Intel or Corsair. Both nearly equal to Samsung, reliable ( as any and better than most) with new SSD replacements for failed drives.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Best Upgrade Ever

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO MZ-7KE512BW 2.5" 512GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This was the best up grade I have ever made. I have built many computers and up graded them for Years. I have never seen a better way too speed up a computer in my life. I when from about 3 mins too 17 seconds for a full boot up, anything you open runs so fast you will not believe it. I'm running a HP 17 " laptop with a i7 Quad Core 2 GHz, with 8Gb of Ram, Blu Ray player. This computer got a new life, I was going to upgrade to a new laptop but now, who need to. 10-Year Warranty

Cons: Price ssd are much more money but you get what you pay for
