4 out of 5 eggsCan't ask more

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

Pros: Easy Install, low power consumption, Fast reading.

I've purchased 2 of these and use them with Raid 0 Setting, mainly for video editing files only drive. So far everything was flawless and read/write speed is incredible. I've done this setting with several other SDD such as intel but didnt get this speed. Though I honestly didnt feel too much of an speed gain from the Samsung 840 EVO Raid 0.

Cons: Price for the spec.

Honestly if you are just wanting something for OS drive, the Samsung 840 EVO will be alot more cost effective. I only purchased these Pro series for a specific reason and so far their performance isn't reflecting the price difference.

Other Thoughts: Overall great drive. With my most recent build, I have 2 x 256GB 850Pro and 1x 512 850Pro(for OS drive). All 3 drives are performing very well.

5 out of 5 eggsGotta Love it!!

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

Pros: Fast, very fast. Even tough my motherboard does not support 6gbs sata III connection, the drive performs better than other drives projected IOP rates in RAPID mode. Setup was easy, I started fresh but had the drive installed and Windows 8.1 loaded in about an hour total.

Cons: I did have the drive crash a couple of times on RAPID mode while installing software. However since I changed some of the configuration I have not seen this issue. Also noticed it does not like Checkpoint Endpoint Security client very much.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this drive.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Hopefully Reliable

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

Pros: No issues yet.
Data Migration Software was great.
Samsung Magician is great to for optimizing OS for SSD.
RAPID support is sick (increases cache upto 4GB)!

Cons: No mounting bracket but for the price and warranty I can't complain.
Not the fastest SSD out there, but hopefully the most reliable.

5 out of 5 eggsI took the Samsung gamble

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

Pros: - It is as fast as advertised once you get it set up.
- The Migration software worked without a hitch.
- Samsung magician software is working
- The drive is good looking and runs cool
- OS boot up, software and games load almost twice as fast as my previous Raid 0 set up on regular spin drives.

Cons: Trying to install a fresh OS (windows 7 64bit) directly onto the drive was impossible. It is not formatted correctly. several forums topics about this issue relate to haw you can reformat the drive. However, What I ended up doing was install windows to my regular spin drive, then load the Drivers and the Magician Software. From there you can use the Samsung Migration Software to Copy the spin drive onto the SSD. The swap the drives and boot. That worked well and I continued loading software and apps without any issues.

Other Thoughts: I really have not had to make any OS adjustments, the Magician software does it for you. The drive had worked without a hitch and is very fast. I have a second SSD that I use as a backup and the Migration software comes in handy for ghosting the drive when I want to back up the whole system. This will allow you to just swap drives and boot if it fails.

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

Pros: i cant say enough good things about this SSD. dont just look at max read and white speeds on SSD's. looks at random reads and writes of different size files. this is a beast where it matters. i have experience with the samsung 840 evo SSD's as well and this blows those excellent SSD's out of the water. i have yet to find a m.2 SSD which meets this products real life performance.

Cons: top of the line = top price. still well worth the extra in my opinion.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat did I learn ....

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

Pros: ....that this ssd is the best in the market.

- No problems with cloning only took 15 min from a 120gb Samsung Evo

- It's fast as hell. Though it's small it's noticeable I have 5 second boot times from my last ssd which had 10 second and I wasn't even expecting that, it just happened.

- 256gb is a reason I also got it for the extra space to put in Maya, and Photoshop.

Thank you Samsung for an amazing ssd.

Cons: I am not going to put down any stars because the Pro is just to amazing I can't be a selfish jerk and bring it down because of my delivery experience. But I'll rant.

I PAID EXTRA for delivery and who did I get as a carrier? ONTRAC, freakin ONTRAC, I wait on the exact date it was supposed to come. Nope, ok maybe it was delayed it happens. Next day, Nope .... 5 days later form the original date it was supposed to come. It arrives within a small plain envelope with no Far Cry 4 code of course.

UPS made it even before the assigned date and nothing damaged , I have had two experiences with ONTRAC and it was a horrible waste of time. Next time If I can I'll cancel my order if I see ontrac delivering my stuff, no way am I letting them handle anything anymore.

Other Thoughts: I love this ssd overall I just can't get over the fact I have top performance. It just put's you at a stand still if your addicted to upgrading your computer annually. It's just that fast.

5 out of 5 eggsLatest and Greatest!

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

Pros: Fast! Newest Tech, Long life. Included software transfers your data with ease! No need to boot from a boot disk and do a bit-bit copy.

Cons: Not as fast as i was hoping, but still fast! Not really a con, but i couldnt think of anything else.

Again, not really a con.. But the 850 EVO just came out too... 1 week after i purchased this!

Other Thoughts: Replaced a 840 EVO with this 850 PRO. I have 32GB of ram of which i can not really tell how much RAPID is using. Seems to be around 4GB or so (from the non-paged pool). I can say that i have never been beat on my load times on League of Legends!

Dont have any raw stats, but i am running an older Ivy-Bridge 3770. Using Magician, my speeds are right where Magician says they should be, but the IOPS are slightly lower. I am sure that is a limiting factor of my mobo.

5 out of 5 eggsFASTT!!

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

Pros: Been using them only for gaming and for windows, I can only say they are really fast and cheap for the price . I ran them in raid 0 and was not satisfied with the speed than i ran them NON-Raid and used its Rapid technology and it ran blazing fast!

Cons: none
