4 out of 5 eggsGreat so far

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE1T0BW 2.5" 1TB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I purchased this for added storage on my 2014 Mac Mini. I used the drive in Raid 0 with the 256gb flashed based PCI storage or as Apple calls it "Fusion Drive". The drive runs exceptionally well. My main use for the Mac is Logic Pro and Reaper for music recording and creation.

Cons: A little price. And I must admit I really didnt need to put a ssd so it was a bit of a waste for me.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE1T0BW 2.5" 1TB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast Fast Fast! Wow! I turned into a Diva at work because this thing is so fast. Virtualization.. awesome. Load times.. awesome. Utilities... awesome. OS install time 8 minutes. Boot times 8-10 seconds.

Cons: None that I found. Price is very good given the time on the market and being a new technology - vnand.

Other Thoughts: Samsung has made an incredible product. Very nice drive.

4 out of 5 eggsFast.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE1T0BW 2.5" 1TB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - Fast, really fast. I upgraded from a cluttered version of windows 7 on a 5 year old HDD to a fresh installation of windows 8.1 with this drive. My computer can go from in use, to restart, to up and running and being able to open up applications all in under 60 seconds.
- Super small and lightweight, they're a lot smaller than they seem.

Cons: I'm getting less than half the IOPS advertised for random read and random write. I've used the Samsung Magician software and have set OS Optimization to the maximum performance setting, I enabled RAPID mode, and I've checked to make sure trim software was running. Yet I'm still only getting around 46k IOPS for random read and 44k IOPS for random write.

Other Thoughts: I'm only knocking one egg because with half the IOPS advertised it's still real fast.

5 out of 5 eggsBig difference!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE1T0BW 2.5" 1TB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: If you are using HDD for your system drive then replacing with this drive will make a HUGE! improvement in performance.

Not to mention it makes no sound or vibration, and generates so little heat I can't tell the difference between the drive and ambient.

Cons: No cons at this time.

Other Thoughts: So far so good.

Pros: All I can say is WOW! Super fast and 1tb, Woo Hoo!

Cons: A little pricey, but the price is for the high quality.

5 out of 5 eggsSeems faster than my last SSD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE1T0BW 2.5" 1TB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Sleek, silent, cool and compact. Finally an SSD drive big enough for me not to have to sweat keeping all my games on.

Cons: High price but it comes with the territory. It's the most expensive thing by far in my new build.

4 out of 5 eggs1TB isn't 1TB usable

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE1T0BW 2.5" 1TB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The drive appears to be quality built and comes with a long 10yr warranty.. Once the Samsung Magician software is used to optimize for Speed, the drive comes in with a Windows 7 rating of 7.9 but optimized for Capacity it only rates 5.9 in my Lenovo W530 laptop. The factory installed Hitachi 7200rpm hard drive has a 5.9 Windows rating.

Cons: The drive is sold as a 1 TB drive but there is no mention of useable capacity in product description. My drive gave 953.8GB capacity with Windows 7 Pro - 64bit after formatting. If you optimize the drive and invoke the Over Provisioning, you will lose another 95.3GB of space.

I didn't notice any difference in boot times for my Lenovo W530 with the Samsung SSD versus the factory 7200rpm drive.

Other Thoughts: The drive is pricey for what you are actually getting as far as capacity and performance. The warranty on it is the only reason why I will keep it and not return it for a 1 TB 7200 rpm hard drive. Since I have only had the drive 1 day, I will have to post another review later, once I have some more experience with the drive.

5 out of 5 eggsEven on SATA II its fast.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE1T0BW 2.5" 1TB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Well, I went ahead an did it. I bought a SSD drive. Prices have come down, and reliability have gone up, especially for the Samsung 850 Pro 1 TB unit. The price on this unit hits $550.00 on occasion so I took the plunge and got one at that price. I didn't really get this drive for THIS PC (a 1156 socket i7-870), but to use in my NEXT PC. Yes, better SSD drives will be around by then but, this is still a nice sized data drive later on. So much for a killer drive in an older PC. And, it's large enough to fully retire my mechanical drive.

Was it worth it? Well, my Windows 7 performance score went form 5.9 to 7.4.
No, W7 does not open in a FLASH, but it is quicker.
Enabling performance mode and using the RAPID mode makes things FLY;
Random read /writes went for 17,000 to pegging the chart to 70,000 write / 98,000 read.
Sequential read / writes are 3438 / 3145 up from 240.
This drive even with SATA II is still crazy fast.
Programs open instantly.
Games save instantly.
Large files open near instantly.

So far, it's a nice change. I've kept my old mechanical hard drive in the PC, unhooked but ready to go if needed. As large as this drive is, and I'm not using my PC any where near the daily limits for ten year life, I think the mechanical drive is simply saving space in the closet by sitting inside the PC!

So I did set everything to performance mode (RAPID, over provisioning ETC) as I'm using SATA II which pegs out at 240 Meg/sec without RAPID mode. But smaller files really fly with RAPID mode, every bit as fast as SATA 3.0. True, it is software so a crash will lose data in the bus.

So with an i7 870 1156 socket CPU with 8 meg RAM on an MSI P55-GD80 mother board things are good.

Now for the part I wish I knew up front. No, you don't need the USB to SATA 3.0 cable to drive image your old drive. Yes, they seem to show ONLY this method of drive image. Too bad, as it wastes desktop users time and patience. Here's what I did ( see cons);

Cons: What they don't tell you;

-Mechanically Load the drive into your PC, add the power and SATA 3.0 cable. Get a 3.0 cable as it is backwards compatible with SATA 2.0 so you have a nice cable for the NEXT PC. But, a SATA 2.0 should work, too.
-Plug it into an available SATA port on you MB. Try to use the exact same controller port as the source drive to avoid Windows problems.
-Start Windows.
When windows boots, you will NOT see the drive on Explorer, it's not formatted or “there” yet.
You WILL see the drive in DEVICE MANAGER, though. OK, so you're good to go.
-Load the SAMSUNG software that came with the drive. I had to load each separate as the programs fails to “load all” when selected. So manually load the Image software after it loads the magician software.
-Start the drive image and it will show the target (new SSD drive) and source drive (your old drive).
-This is super simple if you move no more data than the new drive holds. If not, you will be asked to delete copy folders until it all fits.
Once you select your partition sizes with the slider if any, and get it all to fit, start the copy process.
Wait about an hour or more for the process to complete.
-Turn off your PC and REMOVE (I unhooked power and removed the SATA cable, but left the mechnical drive as a back-up) the old source drive and place the new drive in the exact same SATA port the old source drive used.
I used the exact SAME SATA plug as the old drive to improve the odds it all goes well. Some PC's (mine) have different SATA controllers and I didn't want W7 to see anything different. So, I made sure I used the same Intel P55 SATA II controller port.
-Restart the PC. Bingo, it's all there. I had my old partition drive letter legacy to “F” for some strange reason I can't remember, and it made it “E” on the SSD image drive. This is a pain as ALL my games are “F”. So, I used drive manager in W7 to rename it back to the old drive letter “F' from “E”.
-If you have boot problems, it's most likely your BIOS needs the boot order change to the SSD.

So there ya go, no external cables needed.

Other Thoughts: So that was really all there was to it, and no silly external USB to SATA 3.0 cable to buy. I really wonder why they don't tell desktop users this. So all that remained was to set TRIM in W7 (it's usually “on”), RAPID mode, over provisioning, turn on W7 system restore for the new drive and partitions and set W7 to maximize performance. I figure as light duty as my PC is, I'll never wear this drive out.

Do I say get an SSD drive? Yes, my PC is closer to quiet, and it is snappy in service after W7 boot. Just don't expect it top turn on like a light bulb, it still takes time but a little less, which is good. Don't get in a tizzy about performance, ANY SSD will kill your old HD. And, if they really last as long as they claim, get one to cover a couple PC's. So out of DURABILITY(1), SIZE (1) and PERFORMANCE(.5), getting 2.5 out of three ain't bad. No, you don't need SATA 3.0!

On last item, I haven't figured out AHCI on this MB just yet but performmance scores say maybe I don't need to. .
