Speeds are more consistent, even with heavy workloads and multi-tasks. The 860 EVO performs at sequential writes up to 520MB/s* with Intelligent TurboWrite technology, and sequential reads up to 550MB/s. The TurboWrite buffer size* is upgraded from 12GB to 78GB for faster file transfer.

Safely store and render large sized 4K videos and 3D data used by the latest applications, up to 8x higher TBW (Terabytes Written)* than the previous 850 EVO. The latest V-NAND technology gives you up to 2,400 TBW.
Benefit from faster, more fluid communication with your host system. The refined ECC* algorithm and a new MJX controller generate higher speeds, and the improved queued trim enhances Linux compatibility. Our advanced engineering makes the 860 EVO more compatible with your computing system.

Installing this as a 2nd drive (already have Samsung 1TB as C:\) was less predictable.
Plug it in with expected cables, reboot, go to Disk Management (Win Key + X) and select drive, format etc.
Download Samsung Magician software (from Samsung) and run - it should recognise drive...........if not, uninstall, reboot.
Turn off ALL antivirus\firewall\security monitoring apps, then reinstall it - software needs to check with (Samsung) base to verify disk is kosher. Reboot.
If the SSD is still not recognised, go to Intel's website, as directed by the message given in Magician, and download the suitable Intel SATA AHCI Controller drivers - (spoiler) - this is a real nerd's website, so plenty of heavy duty reading to get correct drivers. Download these to your PC, unzip and remember where you have put them........now Win Key + X again, go to Device Manager, 'IDE, ATA\SATA controllers, expend this to see what is listed; right-click to Update Driver, Browse My Computer to where your shiny new Intel Drivers have been unzipped and install them. Reboot yet again.
Run Samsung Magician, it should now 'see' your disk, so you can play with the options, i.e. Rapid Mode can be enabled (but only on 1 SSD per PC) and Trim enabled, also Performance Benchmark. Magician may also suggest Firmware update for the SSD, if necessary.
It took me hours to get the Magician software to recognise the SSD and I cobbled together my tips from those gleaned from several websites, forums on the 'net, so hope it can help someone else.
For my setup, a decent purchase to keep all my Steam games separate as they take up so much room on main drive.
You won't need that for a Laptop, which is best cloned with Acronis True backup - you can get a trial/free version. That uses a 32GB USB memory stick to clone the HDD to the SSD and is much easier than trying to use the simplified unhelpful Samsung software.
I used the Samsung 'data migration' software for my Desktop PC.
Mu Crucial 256mb drive was struggling and the PC was forever stalling whilst it cached data, annoying after the thired 5 minute delay when in a hurry or flying a plane on-line into a mountain side!
Connect the new Samsung SSD to the motherboard using a SATA data and power cable - this is where the kit comes in handy. Inateck 2x 2.5 Inch SSD to 3.5 Inch Internal Hard Disk Drive Mounting Kit Bracket (SATA Data Cables and Power Cable adaptors.
The 1:2 power cable y-piece is very handy, you can share the old drives power cable.
Use the software to clone the drive.
make Tea, drink.
I used the Samsung 'Data Migration' software, but last time I used Acronis True backup - you can get a trial/free version. It is friendlier and has advice etc.
Now the awkward bit.
Turn the PC power off.
Leave the mains cable attached so it is earthed, touch the metal frame with your fingers to earth yourself and remove static. Don't wear nylon knickers, (ever as a rule).
Remove the cables from the old drive and connect to the new drive, no need to install it yet in case it is not successful (never happened yet).
Boot up the PC, you may need to go into the BIOS and set the new drive as the primary Boot, but not normally if there is only one drive.
Does it boot into windows? Yes, all done - screw it into a drive slot, finish tea and celebrate.
Replace cable to old drive and keep new drive connected with cables from the kit.
-Open Control panel
-Computer Administrative Tools
- Computer management
- in the right-hand pane, open Storage
the Disk management - Note: you can ask Cortana to find it, sometimes it works.
Righto. Now you see a list of all the drives.
Locate the new drive, mine was called SSD C - but look for the size, almost 500mb
There will be two (2) sections, the one one the left with stripy lines on it is the actual boot partition. ie the first partition or section if you like.
-Right-Click on it
Choose the menu item 'Mark Partition as Active' ignore th warning if you are sure this is your your new drive and it is the 1st partiton, mine is marked 500MB NTFS and 'Healthy' the 2nd partition is 465Mb GB NTFS and has the files on it.
By the way - I rename my hard drives according to their manufacturer, my older drive was named as Crucial C and the other a Seagate D - do the same from File explorer before you start, simply rt-click on the drive name and rename (F2 does it also)
Turn off PC
Earth yourself again and remove old drive.
restart PC and admire new Samsung SSD fast loading of Windows.
The hardest part is getting the old drive out and putting the new drive in - access was a pig on my case.
KEEP the old drive exactly as it is for a while, if it goes mammaries up - simply replace it back it and try again.
Tip: Buy an external case for the old drive and use it as an external USB back up drive for photos etc.
Only time will tell if the claimed durability upgrades made it worth buying over the 850 or competitors.
(There seem to be some supply issues at time of writing; my pre-order was delayed by a couple of days. Double check the guaranteed vs estimated delivery dates if you need it quickly.)
