5 out of 5 eggsMy very first SSD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E500B/AM

Pros: Can't believe how small these things are. Lightning fast when compared to the old HDD I was using.

Cons: None noted

Other Thoughts: The mostly positive reviews is what made the purchase decision a no-brainer. I am very happy with this drive so far and would most definitely buy another if the need arises.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Upgrade

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E500B/AM

Pros: Much faster than my old Seagate HD. Windows 10 loads and is fully functional (no lag) in under 60 seconds. Straight forward installation. I had no problems getting this guy up and running. Been using for 3-4 months now and have had no issues.

Cons: Had to buy separate mounting adapter for use in 3.5" bay. Went with an ICY DOCK EZ-fit. Small quibbles.

Other Thoughts: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Coolermaster CM 690 Case (Original version)
Biostar TP45 HP Ver. 5.x Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83 GHz Processor
8GB Crucial DDR2 800 / PC2-6400 Memory (4 x 2GB)
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler
GIGABYTE Radeon HD 5750 1GB 128-bit Video Card

5 out of 5 eggsPhenomenal!!!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E500B/AM

Pros: FAST!!! FAST!!! FAST!!! I've built my own system for years and lean toward the upper midrange, and for years I've insisted on WD 7200 RPM HDDs because of their speed, reliability and cost. Meanwhile, I've been hearing about the SSD revolution in speed and user experience.

After living with 5+ min. usable boot times on my Win7 Core i5 4600K w/8GB RAM for several years, I've finally caved to the desire to get an SSD boot drive, and my research led me to the Samsung EVO 850 series.

The cloning software worked well, but I wasn't able to follow the easy setup instructions (I'll talk about that in the cons). Nevertheless, once I got the system to boot from the SSD I was blown away! My 5+ minute boot sequence had been cut to <30 seconds! The overall system responsiveness was noticeably improved, and I'm looking forward to seeing how this lasts.

Cons: The external USB-SATA cable depicted in the easy setup instruction sheet to be used for data migration isn't included with the drive. As a consequence, I installed the drive internally, formatted it, then cloned my boot partitions. Long story short, I wasted several hours redoing several steps because I wasn't able to follow their ideal installation process (and I wanted to keep my HDD for bulk storage).

Installation would have been smoother if Samsung had either included instructions or made provision for internal installation prior to data migration OR included the $5-10 transfer cable depicted in the instructions so I could have followed their installation process.

Other Thoughts: I understand that SSDs have known longevity issues (although those have largely been addressed in the current generation), and that performance can (and will to some extent) degrade over time, but I'm hoping that my first SSD experience will be as positive as my experience with WD HDDs has been over the years. Based on the first day and Samsung's reputation, I'm looking forward to many years of speedy service from this SSD.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E500B/AM

Pros: Easy to install. Improves machine performance tremendously. Makes an 5 year old core duo with 4 gigs RAM fast. It far exceeds my expectations in improving machine performance. Everything about the machine including unexpected functions like refreshing pages is much faster.

Cons: None. It has been installed about a month and performance is flawless.

Other Thoughts: If you are thinking about pulling the trigger on this upgrade, do it.

5 out of 5 eggsBuck for buck, the best SSD you can buy.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E500B/AM

Pros: Fastest drive I've yet purchase (of about two dozen) by far. My Win10 Pro desktop appears in about 8 seconds after the BIOS info has cleared.

Cons: Nothing

Other Thoughts: After building systems for over 20 yrs,, each time hoping this one will be the one that is as fast as I hope, mine now finally is. Simply love this drive.

4 out of 5 eggsOnly gets 4 stars because of the awful software... Drive gets 10,000 stars.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E500B/AM

Pros: Love the speed and the promised durability. Put into a Dell 5000 series laptop (5559) replacing a 1GIG spinning drive. The results are night-and-day. Other than me being too stupid to figure out the software, I am more than happy.

Cons: OK, I guess I'm stupid, but I could not get the transfer software to work.... well, I guess work the way I wanted it. I wanted a complete clone, but I could not figure it out. It said it transferred the data, but then the laptop BIOS would freak out with the SSD cloned data and not load from the HDD. I had to load Win10 clean from a USB stick to the drive and that seemed to work. Wish I could have had a clean copy, but loading 10 from scratch wasn't bad. Boots, shuts down, constant Win10 updates don't slow the laptop down any more.

Other Thoughts: Five Stars for the drive, but not sure about the software. It could be I have no idea what I'm doing, or that the software doesn't do something right for UEFI stuff. I love the drive and apparently Samsung has a lot of faith in this technology. I am quite satisfied with the speed. This SSD is thinner than the 1GIG spinning drive it replaced, so you may have to get a spacer or mini-cage for it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product for a great deal.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E500B/AM

Pros: I had this unit installed and my old hard drive cloned in two hours without a problem. Not sure what some are talking about I found it very easy.
My laptop battery is lasting much longer and my laptop is running my faster.

Cons: So far none and I have had this installed for months now.

Other Thoughts: Buy with confidence and I see its 20 less than I paid for it.
