2 months in, works fine 9/25/2019 1:42:18 PM

Overall Review: Was able to install in my windows 10 alienware m14x. It seems the MSATA port on this motherboard was intended to be used with a lower-capacity drive as an ssd cache to accompany a 2.5in HDD, but it works just fine as a port for this storage drive.

mSATA Clearly Listed on Samsung Website 4/30/2019 11:59:05 AM

Pros: After reading a recent review that said the user was unable to register or find support for his 860 EVO mSATA SSD I looked at Samsung's USA website. I found the product easily enough, and clicked on the "Support" link. This led to Registration, a downloads page, the Warranty request form, etc. As far as I could see, everything you would need is there. NOTE: I don't have an 860 EVO mSATA, so couldn't input any numbers to check registration, or warranty, etc. But, the pages are there on the website, and it wasn't hard to find.

Cons: Sometimes the support link listed under "Warranty" tab on Newegg's product pages doesn't take you to the right webpage. You can just do a Google search for Samsung USA.

Overall Review: Every manufacturer makes mistakes. We have a Samsung 840 250GB SSD that's been running nicely in a Lenovo laptop since about 2014 or 2015. There was a big deal at one point about the 840 losing data if it sat unused for an extended period of time. We never had the problem, but we went ahead and downloaded and applied a fix which Samsung offered on their website.

UNABLE TO REGISTER . NOT LISTED ON SAMSUNG WEBSITE 3/16/2019 10:36:28 AM

Pros: It arrived. It is not so fast. It needed

Cons: It is not so fast. It needed an adapter to to be installed, as the 860 pin configuration did not match my MSI (Newegg) mainboard. It seems runs very hot. My mainboard temps jumped 55F since I installed it. When trying to register the product, the number would not be accepted. The tech on the phone told me to use the number reported by their proprietary data transfer software 'Magic'. Using this number, I was still unable to register the product. Looking on the Samsung website, using the dropdowns to identify the product, with all their other EVO devices listed, the 860 was glaringly missing from the list. As if Samsung has walked away from the product (chronic issues perhaps?) and disavows that they ever had it in the array of choices. So now I have a hot, slow drive, not eligible for return (via Newegg clasification on my 'orders' page) and disowned by Samsung. This of course appears as textbook rippoff: selling defective products, then denying that it ever happened. So, as expected, it is now simply unused, and a waste of money (approx $100 +$48 adapter).

A pattern emerges. This is just how it went with a Samsung Bluetooth headset I purchased at Newegg some years ago. When it proved defective after two weeks, I found it was not listed on the Samsung webpage, not even in legacy products. Just not there, as if it never happened. When I called Samsung, as soon as I mentioned the model #, they simply sent a replacement, no questions asked. Just "what address?", and sent it along. It also failed in 9 months. Looking online I noticed many stores selling this $149 Bluetooth for as little as $10; obviously liquidating stock for however much they could get. Clearly Samsung disavows their known-defective products (a reported trait at Samsung: denial), and retailers dump them at discount prices. I have read this same experience with Samsung from many others, when searching the net.
Caveat emptor.

Overall Review: I would not only *not* recommend this product, I would strongly warn against it. If it was just a defect, well this happens. No big deal. But when the manufacturer denies they ever made it, it is a warning to look elsewhere. I recommend that before buying Samsung products, look first online at the Samsung website, and see if it is actually listed there. My two Samsung purchases through Newegg were not. And now I know why.

Installed in audio workstation 1/30/2019 8:16:23 AM

Pros: I purchased this originally as an upgrade to my Dell XPS 2710 all-in-one desktop, but then the motherboard decided to die and I did not get the chance to upgrade. Instead, I installed this in my studio workstation to replace the 512GB 850 EVO that was actually working fine. This drive does not appear to be really any faster, but it is still a fast drive and now I have more storage which is never a bad thing. I used Samsung's migration software to port the contents of the one drive to this new one and other than taking about four hours to run, the process was easy and the results flawless. I had a server running an older spinner that was very slow and so I took the 850 and moved it to that machine and migrated that drive. Both systems converted and done in an afternoon.

Cons: None that I have seen. I have Samsung SSD's in all the machines I have built or used over the last five plus years and they have all be stone reliable

Overall Review: I am repeating what has been stated before, but there is no easier upgrade to any computer than by replacing a hard disk-based system drive with an SSD drive. Period!

SAMSUNG 860 EVO Series mSATA 500GB SATA III 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) AA083935 12/16/2018 11:23:36 PM

Pros: This is a great way to extend the life of an older laptop. While the price may seem a bit much compared to 2.5" SSDs, it is well worth the price IMHO.

Cons: So far, there are no cons that I can see.

Overall Review: I installed this SSD in a Dell Precision M4600 along with a 1TB 2.5" Evo 860. The combination has boosted this workstation's performance tremendously. The install was simple, (you'll need screws; the chip doesn't come with them), and the cloning process was flawless. I didn't bother with the cloning software provided by Samsung. Instead, I used Macrium Reflect and had zero problems. The only thing I can see as a problem, (and it really isn't because I did my homework here), is that the mSATA interface only operates at 3Gb/s whereas the 2.5 SSD is running at the full 6Gb/s. With Rapid mode enabled on the mSATA, I'm really not seeing much of a difference between the two.
A word of caution to any who are thinking of adding one of these to their system: You have to remove the ability to boot from the 2.5 disk in the BIOS, in order for the OS to see both disks. I had a problem with my system not seeing the 1Tb disk when I had both installed but when I went back in to the BIOS and took the 1Tb disk off the Bootable Devices list, the disk showed up with no problems. As always, kudos to Newegg for fast shipping
