5 out of 5 eggsSSD drive - SAMSUNG 850 PRO

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

Pros: Fast, light, quiet, simply impressive the speed an older computer (i5 ACER Aspire 7745G Laptop) can suddenly regain, actually surpasses the original drive. Cold Booting W7-ULT-64bit went from ~58 seconds to ~12-15 sec, considering that this is after migrating the existing installation to Samsung SSD, A fresh install of the above W7 now boots between 8~10 seconds. If you run your MS Office suite from a NAS like I do, its worth making sure your temp folder is set to your local C: SSD, its like Day and Night, specially with large files with multiple (internal and/or external) links. For laptop use, the drive is actually slightly thinner than the stock WD original drive, but will mount to the stock holding bracket anyway.

Cons: Just one word of CAUTION, If you tweak the drive using all the tools provided by Samsung Magician, you may want to review your settings in Control Panel/Recovery and Backup. Mine was turned OFF. Just return them to ON if that was your previous choice. I came to realize this when I wanted to roll-back/recover my PC to a few days back, no recovery dates were available.

Other Thoughts: Provided software SAMSUNG MIGRATION was a breeze by the way. If you have, or can spare a SATA connector in your PC, or a second drive bay in a laptop, you can skip their suggestion to initially hook up the SSD as a USB drive, much faster that way, and you can save a few buying just the bare drive version vs. the Kit. Both my laptop (i5) and (i7) tower are now on Samsung SSD PRO drives. The (i5) laptop unfortunately only has SATA 2 so it is not capable of exploiting the full speed gain the drive is able to offer, but the (i7) tower with SATA 3 literally flies.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best out there

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

Pros: Everyone should know by now that SSD, especially samsung ones are the best. This PRO version, is even better.

I have 4 of these set up in a Raid 10 config. I am getting over 1gb of transfer rate per second with them. This is in a 2012 server with a 12 core processor. Takes under 1 minute to turn on, and everything you install is lightning fast.

Cons: None, they price could be lower, but hey, can't have everything. You have to pay to play.

Other Thoughts: Price is high, but performance is worth it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

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 and reliable SSD. Loved the magician software from Samsung. Easy to use and set-up.

Cons: Didn't come with a mounting bracket, but it was my fault for not reading the fine print. None so far...Great drive. Better than my Corsair Force GT which only last 4 years and 2 months after the 4 year warranty ended.

5 out of 5 eggsSamsung 850 Prooooooo

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

Pros: Very fast read/write speeds.
Windows installed in 4 minutes, and boots in 7 seconds.
Very short load screen timings in games.
Samsung brand name and quality.

Cons: Not a single con was given.

Other Thoughts: I jumped up to the 850 Pro 512gb from an 840 EVO 500gb and it actually is a noticeable upgrade, not by a lot, but it is still noticeable.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing, no other word to describe it

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

Pros: Fast
Reliable
Fast
10 Year Warranty
Fast
Simple to Use
Cost Effective

Cons: It's not PCIe?

Other Thoughts: You will be hard pressed to get a better bang for your buck. You really cannot beat the 10 year warranty offered by Samsung on this drive. I understand there is a big price difference between the EVO and the Pro, but that cost is entirely in reliability and the warranty.

Outstanding read and write performance, especially when transferring over USB 3.0. I am pretty sure I installed Windows 8.1 over USB 3.0 within five minutes, no joke.

5 out of 5 eggsSamsung SSD - pro series excellence

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

Pros: Solid dependable drive. I first used Samsung SSD 830-128 and it remains excellent in an Acer netbook with 15 second boot. An 840 EVO 250 works OK in a second Acer AMD netbook but has occasional tempermental fits. A Samsung msata 256 in my wifes Lenovo Yoga is wonderful alongside the original Samsung 128. So I bought this 850 Pro 512. It is solid but wish I had bought the 1 TB. The 512 barely has sufficient room for my technical library files, not much room for expansion. Searches across a huge technical library is incredibly fast. At most 2 or 3 seconds! rather than sometimes 30 or 40 on the WD black it replaced.

Cons: much of what Samsung does with tablets, for example, makes me a bit angry, but I use them despite lack of consistency and poor battery life. the Koreans don't seem to really care about me as a long term customer - however Samsung's SSD cannot be beat. The 850 Pro 512 is a serious solid drive. I like it.

Other Thoughts: everything is above

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: This is my first SSD. I should have gone with the 1TB. This thing is wicked fast compared to my old HDDs. I expected that, but still, WOW. Everything is faster with an SSD, I'll never go back to HDDs except for storage.

Cons: Price ($399), but I knew going in because this was brand new at the time, it's now $269.
