5 out of 5 eggswhat if...

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

Pros: Small, light, simple.

Cons: The supplied software didn't want to do its job. It wouldn't recognize that I had the drive hooked up to a USB port via a SATA/USB cable. I had to use MiniTool's Partition Wizard, my favorite tool of that kind, to set up a partition and format it.

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

Pros: Warp speed fast!!! From power on to desktop is under 10 seconds versus the 75 seconds with the HDD. Magician works superbly.

Cons: Can't wait for the price to drop so I can get more.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate to earlier post

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

Pros: FAST
Simple, intuitive software.
Cloning from Samsung Data Migration was a breeze. No errors or issues.
F.A.S.T.!!!

Cons: Retail package did not include SATA to USB transfer cable
Samsung Data Migration was not included on the software disk.

Other Thoughts: With an older AM3 MOBO and an Athlon 2600 CPU, the original HDD had sequential read/write speeds of 88/90 MB/s. The 850 Pro clocked in at about 245/227 MB/s; just under half of it's advertised speed. After swapping in an ASUS A88X MOBO and A10-7850k Black Edition APU with the cloned SSD, the sequential read/write skyrocketed to 445/427 MB/s. That's an increase of about 500% of the original HDD, and close enough to the advertised speeds of this SSD for my dad to be very happy! Now I need one to replace my Agility 4, which comes in at 339/190 MB/s.

5 out of 5 eggsSpinning Rust IS Dead

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

Pros: Quiet,VERY FAST,easy to install. Very impressed with the speed, especially since I'm coming from a WD Black Sata3 on my last build. Magician software works great, no issues at all so far.

Cons: None that I can detect

Other Thoughts: I had no idea that the throughput on these was so high. Coming from a 1TB hard drive to this is like night and day. 10 seconds to the desktop-FLAT. Open a program, blink and you'll miss the load. Nice unit, well constructed and slick looking. Did a full Win7 Pro install, with all updates and drivers, in under 30 minutes. Can't wait to get an XP941 and see what that is like :)

5 out of 5 eggs10 years ot 150TBW, whichever comes first.

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

Pros: Fast.
Slightly faster than the 840 PRO Series.
10 year warranty.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Samsung 850 PRO 256GB

What exactly is the Samsung warranty on the 850 PRO series?
The Samsung warranty is as follows:

128GB / 256GB - 10 Years or 150TBW (Total Bytes Written)
512GB / 1TB - 10 Years or 300TBW (Total Bytes Written)

The Samsung Magician software states just how many total bytes
have been written to the drive. Once the 150TBW or 300TBW threshold
has been exceeded, the drive is out of warranty.

Unless, using programs that write heavily to the drive, many purchasers
will never even come close to the above thresholds within 10 years. Many
will knowingly upgrade long before then, so the long-term warranty is an
afterthought.

For those concerned about the warranty and want to hold on to the drives
for that long, the caveat has been revealed.

5 out of 5 eggsUpgrade for capacity, not speed.

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

Pros: Fast.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from the 840 PRO 128GB, based upon more speed. But, just like people say........there's no noticeable speed difference in day to day use. Comparing a 128GB 840 PRO to a 256GB 850 PRO, one would expect some speed difference. Nope. Even with an AS SSD benchmark test, it's not that much of a difference.

Lesson learned. Samsung SSD's are so fast these days that an upgrade based upon speed, is uh, kinda silly.

5 out of 5 eggs850x2

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

Pros: I upgraded from the 840 Pro as that died on me after 1 year use (still trying to get RMA)
Currently have these 850s running in Raid 0 setup. Speeds are extremely fast and well worth the buy. So far I have no complaints on them and just hope they last longer then a year this time.
Game loading times are just to good to be true. BattleField 4 loads so fast im in a new map and it starts before anyone else joins. (15 sec spawn timer)

Cons: None except they dont come with a Hot woman and cold beer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Solid-State Drive

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

Pros: I purchased this drive as an upgrade to my OCZ Vertex 4. I couldn't be happier with the performance. Sampson seems to really be a leader in the solid-state market and it's nice to know that I have a 10 year warranty backing this product in the unlikely event something goes wrong. I absolutely love the rapid technology

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWorth Every Penny

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

Pros: This SSD does everything promised which was unbelievable to me because I have built about 20 computers with different SSDs and this one beats them all. The 256 Gb has extra space for speed and is much faster than a 250 Gb SSD. This drive also has a 10-year warranty, which is an important feature. You have to be very careful not to get a virus because some new viruses go into the firmware where you cannot get rid of it. I had one 840 Pro have this happen to it. The extra you pay for 16 more Gb is well worth the cost. I highly recommend this SSD, and I have tested all of them for a few years. I look for this design to cause a steep drop in cost and an increase in size and quality so that the old HDD will no longer be used.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This drive is what future SSDs will be like.
