Pros: It's fast but you don't notice too much of a difference most of the time, as in, when you are browsing the net. Firefox starts up faster and load times for anything are faster.
Cons: Hang on boot. Clean install of genuine Windows 10 Pro and for some reason it will randomly hang on boot. Usually hitting the reset button will fix it. Last night I restarted it 10 times to try and get it to boot from the SSD. I have multiple drives in my computer so I went into the bios and selected another drive with Window 10 Pro, and it loaded right away. I have an ASUS board with the latest BIOS. There is some issue with these drives. I hope someone from samsung could clear up what causes this. MBR and everything in windows diagnostics showed it was all fine, so not like I had corrupted files on the drive.
Btw this rarely happens on shutdown, so i always shutdown my computer, it is more likely to happen during a restart. Either way you are at risk for it not booting.
Other Thoughts: The fact that it hangs on boot really ruined it for me.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: StarTech 6" 4 Pin Molex to SATA Power Cable Adapter SATAPOWADAP
Pros: Cheap, useful
Cons: I have reason to believe this killed my laptop drive. Though I can't say with 100% certainty, I believe plugging the cable into the drive shorted the board. There is no noise coming from the drive, nothing! Completely dead.
Other Thoughts: These things happen, I don't know who's fault it is, and it doesn't matter, essential things should be backed up in the cloud or other drive. Though I had nothing essential I still feel bad about losing a 250gb hard drive. :(READ FULL REVIEW
