5 out of 5 eggs256GB SSD on a MacBook Pro 8,1

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

Pros: - HUGE improvement from my old 320GB HDD 5400RPM
- Close to the advertised speed. Running Blackmagic Disk Speed Test I was getting the following:
WRITE: 458 ~ 470 MB/s
READ: 518 ~ 520 MB/s
- Easy installation
- Lightweight and clean design
- No issues as of yet.
- Made my old MacBook Pro 8,1 (early 2011) feel like brand new.
- Worked with my SATA III cable (where my previous stock HDD was).
- Although minimal, I do see a difference in my battery life.

Cons: - Why didn't I upgrade to SSD a lot sooner??

Other Thoughts: I started to consider buying a new MBP for many reasons (retina, lightweight, battery, USB3.0, etc), however I couldn't bring myself to buy one due to other expenses - so in the mean time I decided to upgrade my MBP as a cost effective method.

I bought my MBP 13in within the first week of release back in early 2011. It was the baseline stock version, however I upgraded to 8GB memory not long after my purchase - so I have been running 8GB of memory for the past 4yrs.

Along with upgrading my MBP with Samsung 850 PRO 256GB SSD, I also upgraded it to 16GB 1333MHz DDR3 RAM from my old 8GB setup, brand Crucial (bought here).

MacBook Pro 8,1 (13-inch, Early 2011)
CPU: 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory: 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB

Downloaded Yosemite, installed my new 16GB RAM, along with my new SSD and booted off a USB flash drive. Installed Yosemite without any issues, and I INSTANTLY felt and saw the difference in speed. I reset my PRAM and SMC as well, due to installing the new hardware. Used Time Machine to restore my previous backup, no issues whatsoever. My Mac feels like a new breath of fresh air. Although I do wish I had a retina display, USB3.0 and the newer features of the current MBP, I'm EXTREMELY happy with my purchase because I could probably get another 2yrs out of this MBP before I buy the newer ones.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the money

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

Pros: Easy to install and reliable

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Excellent drive! installed it in a new build and installed OS only. My boot time was decreased to about 9 seconds. I would by another to replace that second HDD that I use for storage.

4 out of 5 eggsGood But

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

Pros: Great reliability and strong performance.

Cons: It says in the data sheets that it is RAID compatible with a RAID controller. Well if that were true the Magician Software that Samsung gives with the drive would be able to talk to the drives through the controller. It fails to do so.

So I would say that their stance should be more honest in this aspect.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent deal

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

Pros: This is a top performing SSD drive. Installed in a new build a month ago and it works flawlessly. No issues during installation or setup. The included management software, Samsung Magician is a great toll to manage the drive and OS settings

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It could have been supplied with the mounting kit included. Just because it's an inconvenience to have to buy it in addition

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?
