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

Pros: Fast and reliable as I expected. I installed this in my Lenovo laptop last fall and have had no issues so far. This is my fourth SSD purchase with this being first one from Samsung. It’s more expensive than other SSD’s on the market but you pay for the quality. It has benched significantly faster than my older Intel SSD.

Cons: Price. Although if you want that premium quality you got to pay for it.

Other Thoughts: I’m looking forward to picking up a couple more of these for my desktop in the near future. Maybe when they get a bit cheaper.

5 out of 5 eggsSlick

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

Pros: Plug and Play, slim, fast, easy to use.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: This is my first 850 series SSD. I have 4 of the 830 series and have had ZERO issues all around. I would have bought the 1 TB version but for the cost. Would recommend for friends and family.

Drive slides right in and works like a champ. I don't use the included Ghost software (Acronis works just fine).

2 out of 5 eggsDefinitely avoid

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

Pros: Fast, high capacity, RAPID mode, fast load times for games and quick boots

Cons: Reliabiity

Failed firmware updated bricked my SSD. Powerful SSD crippled by a stupid microcode update, my drive is as destroyed as could be without smashing it with a hammer. Go with another cheaper SSD company, like Kingston.

Other Thoughts: Disappointed, I thought Samsung was quality

Why would you release a firmware update that isn't ready yet? I didn't know I had to be suspicious about firmware updates, and scour the web for bug-reports reading up before a simple microcode update.

Guess this is why they had to bundle in that extra-long 10year warranty, at least they got that right.

I am just so disappointed. This was my 3rd SSD from Samsung, I will have to see if other companies are just as careless with their firmware updates.

Manufacturer Response:

Jacob B.:

5 out of 5 eggsFAST

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

Pros: These drives are FAST, got a couple to put in RAID 0 for boot drive and after running several benchmarks I'm getting an average of over a gig per second read AND write times.

Cons: When you set these drives up in RAID Samsungs Magician software doesn't recognize that you're using their drives so you can't utilize it. Had a friend use Magician on one 850 EVO and he said it was about 8-900 MB read/write times. Higher speeds in RAID with the pro kind of negates that issue though.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a really fast boot drive that won't disappoint, then get this. Samsung's Magician software makes one drive have speeds that are comparable to RAID so you really can't go wrong with these.

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

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive. Super speed

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

Pros: Fast, easy setup, RAPID, 10 year warranty. nothing else needs to be said.

Cons: price. totally worth it, but we all want to cheaper stuff.

Other Thoughts: I get some crazy speed with the RAPID. its not even funny how fast this thing is. Get one. you will be very happy.

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.
