5 out of 5 eggsFast standard SSD!

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

Pros: Fast, clean, Samsung

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Tiny, fast, turbo option with the Samsung Magician software works GREAT (no need for separate tool to test performance). Clocking around 561MB/s read speeds without the boost. The boost explodes the speed in benchmark, however not sure about real world. Running this with an M.2 boot drive and totally quiet and super fast system. Picked this over the EVO due to IOPS and not much difference in price. Overall seems this is a much better choice then the EVO drive.

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: Its fast, has a 10yr warranty, and windows loads in 20 secs from a cold boot, less from a warm boot, and its really really fast.

Cons: After installing windows I had to slow my ram down or else I would blue screen when this beast of an SSD when I would transfer data from the SSD to my HDD, my DDR2 16GB would over heat and error from acting as a buffer, it was like I as playing beta 7 of counter strike from the late '90's.... so much fun then sudden disappointment from an AWP.

Other Thoughts: i haven't chlorinated my pool for two years so I could buy this;
1) I have a fast hard drive
2) Swamp Thing is knocking at my pool bath door

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

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

Pros: Easy installation including the migration software. After your data is moved, remove the old drive and install the new. That's all there is to it.

Cons: One small issue. You must have an adapter to go from your laptop or tower to the new hard drive and none is included.

Other Thoughts: The need for an adapter is a small thing, and any usb 3.0 external drive enclosure works great. I just borrowed one that I had for an external backup drive. This is not a big deal unless you DON'T have one.

5 out of 5 eggsBest SSD I've had yet.

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

Pros: Fast shipping as usual. Got a free 1tb Samsung P3 portable HD with it which was a nice bonus. Coming from a 256gb OCZ hard drive which was fast this thing blows it away huge difference with rapid mode enabled. Everything zips by installs, reads you name it. Use it for my main OS drive and handful of games including GTA 5 and still have half the storage leftover. The included magician software runs great as well. Want the best ssd out there get this one.

Cons: None.

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

Pros: Great SSD!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Another great SSD from Samsung. I used this SSD to replace the 840 pro in my desktop and I put the 840 in my laptop. Now they both scream!

2 out of 5 eggsBuggy Firmware

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

Pros: Fast. Seems to be reliable under Windows 7.

Cons: Corruption problems under Linux. I tried to back up drive with Clonezilla and found my Ext4 partition was corrupt and could not be backed up even though it mounted as clean while the NTFS partition backed up without incident. (Never seen this before and the system is a pretty solid Lenovo T420.) Had to jump through some hoops to force a scan and rebuild of the Ext4 fs to get things rolling again. Also noticed some of my audio files are now corrupted on the drive. As the corruption issues are Linux specific, I did some digging and found there is a known problem with the Samsung firmware TRIM support that Samsung has not fixed for the 850 Pro and older 840 drives. I have since turned off TRIM (fstrim at least), but data corruption due to buggy firmware is just not acceptable. Fortunately this is on my Laptop which I mainly use for browsing, listening to music (why there are files on the system to get corrupted in the first place) and remotely logging into my main Linux system to do everything important. Also looks like Windows 7 does not fully utilize the TRIM command set on the drive like Linux does, which is why Windows 7 is not affected.

Other Thoughts: Something tells me either somebody forgot to initialize a pointer in the TRIM code or under certain usage scenarios where there may be multiple pointers (say for command queuing), one or more of those pointers gets clobbered with the way the firmware is written, causing the wrong sectors to get zeroed out. I would also be careful before trying Windows 10 because if Windows 10 turns out to more fully utilize the SSD command set than Windows 7, it may experience the same sort of corruption issues.

Manufacturer Response:

Jason S.:

Thank you for purchasing the Samsung 850 PRO Series SSD.

I am sorry to hear that you are having difficulties with this unit being used with Linux.

Samsung is dedicated to providing quality products backed by first-class service. Please contact Samsung Customer Support so that we can troubleshoot your issues with Linux and TRIM. You can reach Samsung Customer Support toll-free at 1-800-SAMSUNG. Support hours are from 9AM to 9PM EST, Monday through Friday.

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

Pros: None to be found as of yet. Never worked

Cons: Assembled new monster desktop. Everything worked fine except this SSD. Bios reads it correctly but both Samsung Magician and my OS don't see it at all. Tried disconnecting other HDD didn't work. Checked all connections but still the same thing. Overall a waste of money
