What can I say? I have to review the whole package and the promise it makes.

Two pieces of software come with it, one good the other not so good - or the support that comes with it. The Samsung Magician disk management software is good, offers a few settings you can change, and a benchmarking tool to let you know how fast the SSD performs; that way you can see how well your adjustments are working out. Also, this software performs optimization (trim) with a button click -- handy if your OS doesn't support trim or for some reason defragmentation is the only option offered, in which case check for and turn off any such scheduling.

The cloning software is easy enough to use, and indeed I got a copy of the existing 64 GB SSD off in 35 minutes. I could read the files from the new drive when plugged into USB. Trouble is I never got it to start into windows no matter how much I fiddled in the bios. The boot sector wasn't even marked as active, which is something I could fix using disk management from a PC with the cloned drive in USB. But then when it finally recognized and booted to the cloned drive, the drive signature was off (naturally, it seems) and it wouldn't start further than winload.exe. There are various fixes you'll find surfing the web, but it was all a bit much for me after trying a few solutions an without any Windows installation disks (system repair disk offered nothing helpful). Many people reading this could have fixed it quickly and I'm sure they find my fumbling a bit of a giggle. And many wouldn't get as far as I did.

The good news is that I'd upgraded Windows 7 to 8 (8.1) a long while back and always regretted it. So I managed to restore my PC to factory settings and get a brand new Windows 7 PC again.

Will keep this short and sweet because enough tech has been written about this drive it don't need me lol. I have been using a Samsung 830 256GB for a few years now and lets just say that all my PC owning friends who STILL use the old H/Drives have called me some not very nice names after watching my computer boot from the SSD lol. But just lately my 830 has been throwing out some errors, still working well but I thought it time to move it to backup duties and bought this 850 PRO 256GB to replace it. I picked the 850 PRO because though it costs more it has the latest tech and should be fast enough to upset my friends lol. Had problems with doing a clean install so just used a True image backup as I did not really want to spend ages messing about (am getting too old for that now haha). MAN oh MAN I thought that the 830 was fast??, this thing just FLEW. My computer has 8GB 2400Mhz ram,i7 3770K and about 10TBs of storage and now it has a boot disk to match the rest, windows just flies. I know that it costs more than a standard SSD but really it is worth it. My best mate used to call my computer the BEAST lol, wonder what he will call it now? ( I KNOW what he will call ME lol) bob Update I use Windows 8.1 fully updated but but no way can I get Samsung Magician to work, soon as I try and run it it just locks the computer right up. I loaded a image of Windows 7 to the drive and with that everything was ok, but as soon as I went back to 8.1 lockup time.I wanted to enable Fast Mode but seems I can't, did so when on windows 7 but am back on 8.1 now so I presume that that setting has been lost from the drive now. Still I am using a itel Z77 chipset and the 850 PRO is pretty well maxing out the 6G sata. Life for a computer geek is good. ps I am nearly 62 so not all geeks are spotty faced kids,,, some are spotty faced old gits lol.

Easy install in my DELL laptop. Upgrading from existing SSD - smaller 128GB item. I used Acronis True Image to copy the existing C:/ drive to the new drive. Got Acronis to create a new boot sector during the process and this has got rid of the occasional start-up and shut down glitch I had previously. Acronis also allocated the full 256GB to the image copied across (as an option during the process). This is a great drive and a quick and simple upgrade using (in my case) Acronis True Image to do the leg-work.

Other items I required to do this install:
- a small screwdriver
- an external USB 2.5 inch HDD housing (to initially connect the new drive enabling the existing system to be copied across before removing the existing drive)
- Acronis True Image software to copy my existing C:/ drive to the new drive quickly and without the need to reinstall any software or Windows.

Performance - For anyone installing an SSD for the first time - the impact this has on Boot-up times is that from turning my laptop on get to the Windows (8.1) Desktop takes around 12 to 14 seconds - which includes me typing in the Windows password!

Bought this to speed up boot times in my 5-year old Win 7 PC.
Samsung’s migration instructions imply that you HAVE to plug the SSD into a USB-to-SATA adaptor (not included) in order to clone the old drive. Rubbish. I plugged the SSD straight into the SATA socket, and it was recognised by the PC's BIOS and Win7's Device Manager. (NB: my PC's motherboard only has SATA2, so I also bought and installed a Startech SATA3 adaptor card, which needs to be plugged into a PCIe Rev 2 x16 slot to get the best out of the SSD.)
The supplied Samsung Data Migration software was useless. My old hard disk was listed as another Samsung 850 Pro SSD, instead of a Spinpoint F1. Then it failed 50% through after 22 minutes with the unhelpful error message “Cloning Failed 4001100[061a12e]”, otherwise this'd get 5 stars. Fortunately I’d taken the precaution of installing Macrium Reflect Free, which worked perfectly.
After adjusting BIOS boot order, all now working fine. Blindingly quick boot times. Windows is now useable after about 75 seconds from switch-on, instead of 7 minutes. Brilliant. Using the old hard disk as a data drive.
