5 out of 5 eggsPremium quality SATA 3 SSD for a great price

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

Pros: Samsung's magician software allows for easy optimization of ssd as well as OS itself to help optimize conditions for the drive. One of the fastest SSD's in its class. Able to be encrypted.

Cons: That it isn't a 950 pro, which is similarly priced and you may end up wishing you got instead.

5 out of 5 eggsI love SSD's & Samsung is always at the top of my list

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

Pros: I get Samsung or Intel SSD for my own use. I do purchase other brands for my employees PC's. But, these two are at the top of my list. Depends on use and what's on sale, on which way I go.

Cons: NO CONS, except price on the Samsungs now. Knock on wood, but I haven't had an issue with 6 different brands of SSD's. I recently bought some Mushkins b/c they are on sale, assembled in the USA & have good support, also I'm liking these Sandisk X300's I got as well. But, I have had Samsungs & Intels in use for several years, so I know those are built to last.

Other Thoughts: I actually wrote this review & encourage others to do the same, but anyone not using an inexpensive HDD duplicator are crazy. Best purchase I ever made. Forget cloning software. I have a cheap Dyconn, but use one of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817707323&cm_re=hard_drive_duplicator-_-17-707-323-_-Product

On top of that you can use as an external storage dock

1 out of 5 eggsNo support

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

Pros: Worked great for two months.

Cons: Had a hard time cloning form HHD. Lasted two months.Then it crashed, will not repair from windows 7 64 bit software. Called tech support 3 times. Cloned again, lasted two days. Tried to clone and got nothing but "failed". Tech said to load fresh OS install and "start all over". What's the use of cloning ?

Other Thoughts: Samsung makes good products but doesn't appear to want to back up product. Too much hedging. I won't do this again. Not with Samsung.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD for price!

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

Pros: Just as the title says, I bought this for $120 and it's a great little SSD for that price. I would like to buy another one for RAID but for now I actually don't need it, yet. I am using this and my trusty old 240GB OCZ Vertex 4 which I bought in 2012 when they could be had for $225, unlike now where, for someone reason, they are $450...

The performance, well, for the fact that the Vertex 4 is over three years old (close to four years old now...) and this Samsung is less than two months old, a little disappointing (only on the benchmark side of things, which I knew before purchasing). I used Samsung Magician in order to be fair with the following results per SSD, but the results also show the same, I mean within 3% or less, on Crystal and AS SSD.


Samsung Sequential Read: 561 MB/s Samsung Sequential Write: 534 MB/s

Samsung Random Read: 69929 IOPS Samsung Random Write: 37750 IOPS

OCZ Sequential Read: 533 MB/s OCZ Sequential Write: 509 MB/s

OCZ Random Read: 78745 IOPS OCZ Random Write: 76906 IOPS



As you can see, the Vertex almost doubles the Samsung in IOPS on random write, and also beats the Samsung in random read IOPS. Now, will you notice this performing day to day operations? No, most likely not. Will and does it make a difference in benchmarking? Yes. The OCZ (almost four years old...) actually yields better results in benchmarks than the Samsung.

I gave it 5 eggs because of the price to performance ratio. Honestly, outside of benchmarking, in which I use the Vertex as my main OS drive (and for benching of course...) and the Samsung as a storage back up, this is an awesome drive for the money, buying another and having two in RAID 0 would be stellar, especially in doubling my storage size.

If you're looking for a benchmark king, however, look elsewhere. I knew this before buying, I did research on this drive, but again, for the price, and the fact that it's a Samsung drive, I didn't want to pass it up. I am honestly glad I didn't.

Cons: Not especially a "con" if one does one's research before buying, but the random write IOPS are on the low side with this drive, when compared to any SSD. Nothing noticeable in day to day operations in use as a storage drive...nothing enough to take an egg off for...

5 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY

Cons: NO CONS

Other Thoughts: I HAVE BOUGHT SEVERAL Samsung ssd'S AND HAVE NO PROBLEMS OF ANY KIND WITH THEM. I personally choose to do a complete format of the SSD. I do not use any of their software or upgrade the firmware. I always get a 7.9 Windows performance which I feel is satisfactory for the majority of users. I always copy and paste all of the information I want to put on the desk, if everything is successful then I just delete the information from the previous location. This may seem silly to most people but it has worked for me numerous times and I have never had a problem with any of the SSD drives which is many. I am sure that gamers want to get all the speed they can get but for most computer users the SSD drive is plenty fast. my windows loads and about six seconds. I have never had a problem of any kind with any of my SSD drives.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful

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

Pros: My PC boots in about 20 seconds. Games load insanely fast. I'm never going back to a HDD.

Cons: nONE

Other Thoughts: I'm going to replacing my secondary HDD with one of these in the future. I can't wait for them to be more common so they'll be a little cheaper.
