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.

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.

I currently own the Samsung 830 256GB SSD, and after coming to the upper limits of its storage, it was time to expand (only had 4GB remaining!). First choice was the 850 Pro, with its higher IOPS range, reflected by Samsung's 10 year warranty guarantee.

Physically, the 850 Pro is not as good looking as the 830, which had a brushed aluminium finish. The chrome trim remains however, so at least it will look unified once installed into the system.

I was disappointed with the package given the price; the 850 Pro comes with no SATA cable, or SATA to USB cable, unlike the 830 - only the Samsung Magician CD (which would probably be more up-to-date on the Samsung website), and installation instructions. It would be nice to see at least one SATA cable packaged with Samsung SSDs, for newcomers etc - and just to save the expense of buying an extra cable.

Coming onto installation, it was very simple; but my installation of Windows is strategically split into two - one partition for Windows, and another for Programs, which is a habit from my XP days, but also makes modifications to storage very easy. Using this method, it ensures that I do not modify or damage anything to do with Windows.

Subsequently, I cloned the Programs (E:) partition to the 850 Pro, using Macrium Reflect, and then expanded the partition to the full storage capacity using AOEMI Partition Assistant. The drive letters were then re-ordered for Windows, with the 850 Pro taking up the Programs (E:) position from the 830.

A reboot was all that was needed, Windows did not flinch at all, and I re-consolidated the extra space on the 830 to the Windows partition.

The brand says it all - Samsung ssd's are world-beaters for speed and reliability. Shop around on price but this drive does the business.
