5 out of 5 eggs Works pretty good for Crosshair Nvidia motherboard 05/03/2015

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 have a 2009 Media Computer I built with the original ROG Crosshair motherboard that has the Nvidia chipset and drivers included. Even though the Magician software doesn't like the Nvidia chipset or drivers, there wasn't much I could do about changing the controller driver, it's set in stone no matter what I tried. The BIOS doesn't have any settings for SSD's either, but it did read the SSD correctly. Anyway, I went on ahead and used Acronis cloning software to clone my aging 7 year old HDD to the SSD. After switching over and rebooting, Windows 7 64bit was up and running in half the time! It is still much quicker than my old SATA II HDD. This SSD will run in SATA II as I found out on my old 2007 Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop, it's not 6Gbs, but still much faster than the mechanical HDD. I made the settings that I could make in the Magician software for maximum longevity and provisioning, so at the very least I got that! I couldn't make any other settings with it. The SSD is running pretty good so far and very happy with it. I hope this helps others out there that are uncertain about upgrading their aging computers like me. :-)

Cons: None, other than the usual challenges making it work with old tech.
