5 out of 5 eggsNoticeable improvement from previous SSD

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

Pros: It really is fast as they claim. Migration software worked well. Ran out of space on "OS only" drive 240gb SSD, this 512 should hold me over for a while even with .ost's and OneDrive Pro.

Cons: Price, but its barely a con. Its about a Benjamin over what it should cost. Assuming part of that difference is warranty expense to use accounting terms.

Other Thoughts: Migrated from a 240gb 520 to this equipment. Rest of rig is 3770 and Sabertooth z77 using Win 7 SP1 64bit and 32gb of ram.

Used the migration software and everything went smooth and fast. Did this for interest of time and to test it.

Within magician, had to change the optimizations to custom, but the over provisioning is getting an error stating the last partition is unreadable on the clone. There was only the Win7 OS partition with the default 100mb partition Windows creates.

Also enabled RAPID and it really does work. However, haven't tried it with VM Workstation and RAPID on yet, that is my only concern of compatibility.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

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

Pros: This thing is as fast as every professional review says it is. Absolutely the fastest gaming load times available for a SATA SSD. Only way to get any better is with a PCIe connection.

Cons: None. Well, okay, the Samsung Magician software was a little annoying to stop from loading on startup, turns out it's a scheduled task.

Other Thoughts: If it goes on sale, buy it. You know you want it.

5 out of 5 eggsMust Have!!

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

Pros: Boots fast, 9 seconds fast, Photoshop and Adobe CC does not lag at all, future-proof, great software with good updates, Rapid Mode is something else, Using Areca controllers running RAID0, get this if you can afford it and you'll see What I'm talking about.

Cons: pricey, but hey you gotta pay to play, right!!

Other Thoughts: I use the 5820K Haswell-E 6, and multithreadrd programs and it just shreds,

1 out of 5 eggsDon't fall for the long warranty term

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

Pros: Starts fast

Cons: unlreliable, poor customer service

Other Thoughts: I tried to get a warranty replacement through Samsung. They started out great. They responded quickly and apologized for the inconvenience. Then they asked me to forward all the information I had already given them to a another email, which appeared to be a third party. It's been a couple of weeks and still no response.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW!!!!!!!!!!

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

Pros: FAST! FAST! and btw FAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cons: Price- it's kinda pricey.
No adapters for USB data transfer.
No adapters / spacers for internal installation.

This was no t a problem for me personally as I had all these adapter and tools on hand but if you order it and don't have an AC powered USB SATA adapter then you should get one.

Other Thoughts: Samsung bundled together some amazing software that makes copying the old drive and installing it and OPTIMIZING it a breeze. If you order this beast make sure to install the Magician software to ramp up your speed by almost 10 times!!

5 out of 5 eggsFirst time SSD User

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

Pros: I have finally decided the performance gains is worth the investment to make the jump to SSD. All I can say is this sucker is fast! Great response time, boot time is jaw dropping compared to my old 10k raptor drives. I've been a WD HDD user for a long time, but Samsung has my attention with this line of SSD's now.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I hope the reliability will last a long time like my faithful WD Raptors have.

5 out of 5 eggsScreaming Speeds with Magician Software Rapid Mode

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

Pros: Non-RAID Verified benchmarks without Rapid Mode:
Sequential Read = 350 MB/sec
Sequential Write = 213 MB/sec
Random 4k RW Transfers = 213 MB/sec
Non-RAID verified benchmarks in Samsung Rapid Mode:
Sequential Read = 2998 MB/sec
Sequential Write = 2515 MB/sec
Random 4k Seek = 2317 MB/sec

Cons: Rather slow speed without rapid mode enabled. Possibly because disk was new and cache had not developed memory.

Other Thoughts: I have always disabled the previous Samsung Magician software because it didn't improve anything for me, but nearly a 10x increase in speeds is very nice!
