If you are looking to upgrade your spinner, then look no further, this drive is awesome, well worth the money. I bought the 256GB drive and I have no regrets at all. My laptop boots in 10 secs and my files are instant. I have Sierra chart and the database is on my drive and it loads in one second.
I looked on Youtube to gauge the cloning process and it took me 15m to copy using the USB 3 port, worked first time, and copied the recovery drive as well. The copy process worked first time with no issues, and my laptop saw the drive straight away, I did not need to enter the BIOS to check.
Fantastic, and I will buy another one if I get another laptop.

Very fast drive, and certainly reliable so far, whether the extra cost for the Pro version is worth for you, only you can decide, as in normal use I don't really noticed any difference in boot speeds from this drive and a Samsung 840 1TB I also have in my desktop PC, in fact I have 2 of the 1TB 840 drives fitted, as I removed all the mechanical drives and completely switched to solid state one's for the total silence they offer.

So I can recommend either of those Samsung drives, the Pro version is a little pricey just to knock an extra second of the boot time, but you do get the much longer warranty of course.

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.

This could have been one of the best upgrades I'd ever purchased until I installed Samsung's firmware upgrade last week. Samsung's recommended firmware upgrade has completely destroyed my SSD and that of hundreds (if not thousands) of other customers who trustfully installed it. Fortunately I backed up my data prior to the upgrade but I wasted money and time spending days trying to figure out what went wrong until I found the facebook page created by other furious customers lobbying Samsung to fix the problem here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/897460120304659/897485826968755

Also, IT News website The Register have written an article exposing the fiasco here: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/02/26/samsung_850_pro_ssds_getting_borked_firmware/

The drive worked well for a few days and then Windows 8.1 crashed. When I attempted to re-install, the system could not see the drive at all. I've sent it back for a refund and ordered a replacement. I'm hoping it was just a dodgy unit and not something else. My system is an Intel i7 4790K on an ASUS Maximus Hero VII motherboard. It also failed to do a firmware update using the Samsung Magician software. This could be an indication that it was dodgy to start with.

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. So now I have one SSD for Windows, and another for Programs.
