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.

Blazing fast SSDs ( I have had other SSDs before these ). I bought 3 to replace my old 1st generation SSDs. It loses 1 star because the program SSD Magician or something made my pc hang needing to press the reset button.

I fixed this by setting the optimisation to endurance and NOT SPEED !

Bought this SSD expecting it to improve the performance of my 5 1/2 year old 17" desktop replacement notebook, which I upgraded 2 years ago from Windows Vista to Windows 7 (both 64-bit.) A USB/ SATA cable for cloning the old mechanical drive to the SSD was not included, although it was shown below the item as 'Frequently Bought Together.' My USB docking station worked well. Physical hard drive installation was straightforward. The bundled migration and optimisation software was easy to use. Immediately noticed a significant increase in speed and response, e.g. starting up/shutting down, window opening, program launching and web page loading. Age of the notebook's other components, the system natively supporting SATA 2 (3Gb/s) rather than newer SATA 3 (6 Gb/s) and only having 4 GB RAM installed - an upgrade to 6 or 8 would cost £90 to £180 - means I won't be able to max out the SSD's performance. That said I really like Samsung Magician software's tweakable performance optimisation utility. The only reason I'm not rating the SSD as 5 star is the short time I've been using it. Overall a thoroughly recommended upgrade from a traditional hard drive.

The item reached early than I expected. The packaging was okay. I don't know if you should protect SSD while shipping the same way you protect mechanical hard drive. As it was posted as standard delivery, tem was considered letter - a big size letter. As the packaging was small enough to fit my apartment door mail hole, the postal person simply pushed it inside through the opening and it fell down as if it was a letter. I don't know if something like fragile should have been written on the package that would inform the postal person be more cautious. There was a label that said personal computer item though.

About the SSD performance, I just installed and started using 2 days back. So I have to wait and see how it goes. bit as an initial review, it is super fast. The laptop boots and shutsdown in the blink of an eye. My only gripe is that the package should have included the USB cable for external connection, and other metal frames if one needs to connect to desktop.

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.
