5 out of 5 eggsSamsung 850 Pro

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

Pros: Great drive even for my SATA 2 Dell Laptop,
Software worked great once I realized how to install as Administrator,
10 Year warranty

Cons: Mostly me, did not realize had to install Migrator as administrator, needed to purchase a SATA usb cable about $15 with shipping, for a novice the install was relatively painless.

Other Thoughts: Had a difficult time physically installing the hard drive in my Dell laptop; (read this is a common problem on the web) gave it to my wife she did the unthinkable; she turned the computer OVER and easily installed the hard drive. Gravity is a marvelous thing. Hahaha. 5 stars for the drive, 2 stars for the tech.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing and Fast!!!

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 was previously running (and still am) a Samsung 840 evo 256gb on which I had installed my OS for fast boot ups and some additional games and high load programs. The SSD was fantastic and boot ups averaged 15-17 secs with windows 8.1 64bit; however, I ran out of storage space faster than expected. I hopped back on Newegg and starting looking for an additional SSD. I settled on this beast of a flash storage system the Samsung 850 pro 512gb. I used the Samsung migration software to duplicate the 840 evo onto this drive. The program worked flawlessly and i have noticed an improvement in boot times by about 1-2 seconds. It's not really that significant but it's something you will definitely notice first hand. This drive went into a system that was in the planning phase for a while. I finally conjured up the strength to order everything for my new system. Nevertheless this drive is fantastic and in Rapid mode will blow just about any other SSD drive out of the water. Except PCIE storage.

Cons: The only con is the price. A little too expensive but you get what you pay for that is for sure.

Other Thoughts: I have this SSD running with:

Intel core i7 4790k oc'ed to 4.6ghz
cooled by enermax liquitech 240
ASUS Maximus VII Hero
16gb Gskill Ripjaws DDR3 2133
2x EVGA Superclocked GeForce GTX 760 SLI
Samsung 840 evo 256gb
1tb seagate hybrid SSHD
Corsair HX850 850w
Creative Sound Blaster Z
Asus PCE-AC68 wifi card
Corsair Carbide series 400R case

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

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

Pros: Great performance for sata III SSDs. I have 2 of these in raid0. This pair in raid0 keeps up with my SAMSUNG M.2 SSD XP941 MZHPU256HCGL-00000 M.2 256GB performance - Read 1080 MB/s - Write 800 MB/s.
And with twice the reliability of most SSDs should have typical SSD reliability in raid0 mode.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: ASRock X99 Professional LGA 2011-v3
Intel Core i7-5960X
2 - G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 series 32GB (4 x 8GB x 2sets = 64gb) 288-Pin DDR4 2133
EVGA 06G-P4-3790-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX TITAN BLACK 6GB
2 - Dell UltraSharp U3011 30"
SAMSUNG SSD 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW - boot
2 - SAMSUNG SSD 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE512BW (Raid0)

5 out of 5 eggsSimply Awesome

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

Pros: Very fast. Low power. Great for laptop or PC use

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: Put this in my Lenovo T420 after the mechanical drive crashed. Restored with a Clonezilla backup both Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04 as Clonezilla is a great free backup and restore solution that works well with both Windows 7 and Linux. (I have found a lot of backup solutions that used to work with Windows XP no longer work with Windows 7, so you have to be a bit careful about this for full system backups.) Windows boot cut down from ~5 minutes to ~20 seconds. Ubuntu Linux boots almost instantaneously; just too quick to manually count.

Under Linux hdparm measures ~514 MB/s reads without tuning. Haven't benched writes, but I have noticed updates and installs are very fast, much faster than my desktop with an older SSD in it.

Power consumption under Windows went from reading 10W to 7W with this in there under idle. Power consumption under Ubuntu 14.04 went from reading 11 - 12W down to 8W under idle. The reduced power consumption is helping me eek a lot more out of these aging batteries. While my slice battery is toast, the remaining 3 year old main battery sometimes measures up to 12 - 13 hours under idle and realistic of 8 - 10 hours under normal use. Not bad for a 3 year old laptop battery. (I ended up mostly abusing the slice battery while the main spent most of its time in maximum lifespan mode, which is why the slice battery is toast and the main still kicking strong.)

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.

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.
