5 out of 5 eggsPricey but very well worth it

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

Pros: Very fast.
Noiseless, like all other SSD's.
Efficient, like all other SSD's.
Good capacity for all your programs and some games.
Robust V-Nand technology promises better durability.

Cons: Pricey, but that comes with the territory.

Other Thoughts: Not much faster than my old 256 GB Samsung 840 Pro, but perhaps my AMD FX-8350 processor might be holding it back a bit. I found that the provided Samsung data migration software works.

5 out of 5 eggsFAST and reliable.. even on Windows HyperV server

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

Pros: very fast and very reliable. MLC with NAND. Great for my system
Running Exchange 2016VM, SQL 2014, Domain controller, Web server. 4 different VMs with 2000 users. Drive runs like a charm. To stress it out, i used ALL these server VM's on this drive but still amazingly working. i am very impressed with this dang thing..
i learnt that you figure out the number of drives per VM. in my case, i can run 4 heavy load VMs on 1TB.
im to deploy a server with 256GB DDR4 ECC with dual xeon E5 12 core each, and i will use 5 of these.. SuperMicro boards with Corsair h60 liquid colling, makes it all brilliant and blazing fast in a desktop architecture. you gotta love virtualization with Vmware, microsoft hyperv and citrix..
i tried other drives with MLC, but they show issues after short time..

Cons: price is high still

4 out of 5 eggsDOA on arrival, Great Samsung Tech support

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

Pros: I received the drive for a present. Took me another month before I installed it. Didn't work initially and Tech support was very helpful and I returned the unit and received a brand new replacement within 2 weeks. Very happy with the drive since. No issues.

Cons: Initially didn't work, had to mail back the old one before receiving the new replacement. This took about 2 weeks.

Other Thoughts: I have had very good luck with this drive after I received the replacement. Nice to talk to a Tech person that I can understand and knows something about computers. Not just someone reading a script telling me to do things they don't understand.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product - absolutely the worst documentation ever!

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

Pros: Super fast drive, runs great once you get Windows to recognize it.

Cons: - Installation docs are horrible and pretty much useless. A four page pamphlet shows 4 images on each side - one side for laptop and the other side for desktop - no instructions whatsoever - you are supposed to be able to interpret the illustrations and know what to do - easy right? Not so.
The Desktop illustrations show the drive being connected by some sort of cable to a USB plug on one side and some uber plug on the other. Never was there a mention of this requirement when purchasing or researching this drive. This is a component you will have to purchase separately as it does NOT come with the drive. Now saying this; there is no 100% need for this special cable, and you can work around it - IF you have enough background computer knowledge. For those who have just enough information to be dangerous, well good-luck, open your wallet for another hidden expense.

Other Thoughts: Should YOU buy this drive? YES - IF you have enough IT experience to work around the shoddy docs, or you have a large wallet and buy the add-on special cable.

New to computers? First build? I don't know if the headaches would be worth the end result. I'm sure there are other name brand drives that are just as good with better docs and procedures.

5 out of 5 eggsLives up to the published specs. and then some!

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

Pros: Quiet, low heat output, best guarantee I know of for any drive and easy to set-up. Note the EVO version has basically the same performance but with ONLY a 5 year warranty.

Cons: The Samsung Magician software that comes with the SSD does not completely work with Windows 10-64 bit ( don't know about 32 bit ver.) as some functions do not recognize it as a supported operating system. Does not seem to hurt the real world performance however, which is still probably the best available for the money, certainly best with a guarantee of TEN years ( or a certain amount of data input, which is very large ) Price is a little high, but if you ever had an SSD fail you will probably consider it worth it, since they never seem to give any warning like conventional drives sometimes do and you lose All data.

Other Thoughts: I do recommend this drive to friends, especially for laptops, which benefit most from the single large drive (now available in 2 Tb. version) since they usually have space only for a single drive. Desktops can benefit greatly by using smaller SSDs for just the Operating System and programs, and using less costly slower drives for data storage. If your computer seems slow and you want to get more use out of it replace the conventional drive with this SSD for now and then move it too your new computer when you are ready to move on.

3 out of 5 eggsDrive itself is fine, it's everything else in the box that is substandard

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

Pros: As advertised, nice and fast.

Cons: Installation instructions are terrible. Step #2 calls for a SATA to USB cable to hook up the drive to your computer for the data migration, except no cable is included. You need to go buy your own.
Included software did not install properly on Win10. I needed to download the data migration program from their website instead.
I imagine most people would know how to go into their bios and set the boot order for your drives, but if you aren't sure, there are no instructions telling you how to do this, as there was no manual included with the product. You need to visit the website to download the PDFs. I also had to uninstall and reinstall several programs as they didn't transfer over correctly.

Other Thoughts: The overall product is fine, I just had to go through way too much troubleshooting that I shouldn't have had to. Installing a drive is normally a pretty straightforward operation, and this one wasn't.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

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

Pros: -10 year warranty
- Amazing read/write speed
-Very reliable
- 1 TB of solid state storage
-Decent value for price/GB

Cons: - Absolutely none thus far!

Other Thoughts: Replaced a 1 TB WD Caviar Black that was beginning to develop issues. Cloned the WD to the Samsung 850 Pro without any issues and was very pleased with the performance boost. Out of the ten Samsung 850 Pro SSD's I've installed in the past year+ I still have yet to have any issues with them.

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

Pros: - 10 year warranty
- Very quick reads and writes
- Terabyte of space

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive to replace a Western Digital Caviar Blue 750GB HDD. The HDD has Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit installed. I booted into Fedora 22 on a flash disk and used dd to clone the entire HDD to the SSD. I then expanded the partition on the SSD to utilize the bigger drive that was now available. Windows booted up just fine from the SSD, and in fact booted up so quick I was unable to see my desktop wallpaper almost immediately after login, due to all the programs that I have configured to open at boot.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent!

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

Pros: This ssd is blazingly fast and the samsung magician software is quite useful. I paid extra to buy the PRO over the EVO for higher write endurance and splurged for a larger capacity (I was planning to go for 500GB model, but bought the 1TB instead when they offered a coupon code for a modest discount) and so far I have zero regrets. I tested the drive extensively with HD Sentinel, Crystal Diskmark, etc and the disk status/health was perfect.

Cons: I haven't experienced any shortcomings or complaints.
