5 out of 5 eggs850 PRO is the Best

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO MZ-7KE256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Install WIndows 7 OS within 20 minutes and has fast Read/Write speeds. Very pleased to have 256GB to save all my applications and files for fast/easy access.

The chrome edges is a really nice touch,

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: For this price, it should come with 4 screws, 3.5" to 2.5" adapter, and a SATA cable. Used in an office computer for my company.

5 out of 5 eggsquick little ssd

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO MZ-7KE256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Amazingly quick. windows 10 boot times are under 20 seconds, cold boot. software optimization is nice in Samsung magician.

Cons: Samsung magician isn't completely compatible with windows 10 currently, will not allow me to enable rapid mode, due to not recognizing the operating system. not major, but still a com as windows 10 is little over a week from release, already at RTM and has had a stable developer preview for months

Other Thoughts: overall id buy this drive again, honestly id buy 4 if my girlfriend would let me. while the price is quite a bit more than the 850 evo, the performance difference is quite amazing. I get no slowdowns, great read and write speeds and quick boots. isn't that what a ssd is for?

3 out of 5 eggsMust Over Provision by 20% To Get Advertised Speeds

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO MZ-7KE256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I like the drive. Samsung and its flagship SSD have a known reputation to be very reliable and consistent. You do get advertised results, but...

Cons: ...you have to over provision the drive by 20%. For a 256GB drive, that's about 51GB on top of the fact that you only end up with 238.5 of the 256GB once the drive has been installed and formatted in your computer. Should you only provision 10-15%, you'll lose about 50% of your write performance; you'll maintain your read performance, but the write performance takes a huge lose. Some numbers: over provisioning by 15% -- seq: 470/470 iops: 95,000/47,000; over provision by 20% -- seq: 470/490 iops: 95000, 83,000. The numbers are fairly consistent over various benchmarking tools.

If you contact Samsung and complain, they'll claim the drives vary and the performance is only "up to" the advertised speeds, and not guaranteed.

Other Thoughts: Given the rate at which SSDs drop in value (due to Moore's law), for the price, I think I'd prefer something a little bigger, with about the same performance, from another product (and perhaps another company).

5 out of 5 eggsSpeed demon

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO MZ-7KE256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Lightning fast, boots Windows 8 in seconds.

Cons: None yet, though I'm nervous about SSD's longevity. I typically use the same PC for several years before updating. Given the nature of SSD's, it's likely I'll be forced to replace the boot drive at least once. Never a fun task.

Other Thoughts: Is it normal to install these drives while still in their cardboard box? That's what iBuyPower did with mine. The whole box was shoved into the drive bay, cardboard and all. It works, but this seems like a really bad idea.

5 out of 5 eggsSamsung 850 Pro 256gb

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO MZ-7KE256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast (power on to desktop takes about 20 seconds)
Works
Lightweight/Small

Cons: None at this time (will update as time goes on if anything changes).

Other Thoughts: Although Ive only had 1 day to use this, I was able to successfully install W7 64-bit on my new pc that I built. I had zero hiccups during this process and the SSD works great.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product from reliable brand

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO MZ-7KE256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast. Reliable. Easy to install. Good price

Cons: Not enough time to brew a coffee while computer powers up.

Other Thoughts: With SSD prices at this level there is no excuse not to install it in your computer. After upgrading my work and home laptops with those devices I see outstanding performance out of my aged laptops. (Dell Inspiron 17R and Dell Lattitude). One in lattitude works for a year and Inspiron 17R has been just upgraded. No issues so far. Installed Windows without hiccup. Lightning fast boot. Lightning fast applications. What else do I need. Oh, service from Newegg is great. I got my SSD faster than expected.
