Here is some benchmarks (on w7x64) with ahci driver by intel:
I bought a cable so I could attach the drive externally via usb in order to clone the old disk to it. First off, I used the supplied Samsung utility. This will only let you copy the partition the operating system is in, plus one other. Like many laptops, this one has a couple of hidden partitions for booting and also to hold a factory image so it can be refreshed if required. The clone software won't copy these. Not a problem, I thought, the laptop is so old now I don't want the original factory image now anyway. The clone took well over 2 hours to copy about 70GB of data. I then shut down, swapped the discs, and turned it on.
It wouldn't boot. Leaving the hidden partitions behind had broken the boot information. I had to boot off a windows install cd and repair the system. Following this, as often happens, it booted ok but I had lost the pretty windows 7 boot animation and was instead presented with the old vista green progress bar. None of the bcdedit/bootrec/bootsect incantations I found online would fix this. Despite it only being a minor niggle, I don't like problems I can't diagnose or fix, because then I don't know what other problems might be lurking. So I ditched it, put the old disk back in, and used the free EaseUS Todo Backup utility to clone it instead. It is ssd aware so the partitions are aligned correctly, and it lets you copy any or all the partitions, hidden or not, and resize them.Read more ›
You will need to purchase a startech sata to usb lead (from Amazon) as it does not come in the box (apparently some external cases cause the drive not to be recognised)
The migration software DOES NOT WORK WITH WINDOWS 10, every time I tried to find the drive to copy it, the software did not recognise it so I couldn't copy my old drive, after many tries I visited Samsungs website and found version 4.7 (the disk was 4.5 but after self checking said there was no update!!!) After downloading 4.7 and overwriting 4.5 it still didn't work! Now I was really frustrated so I went looking on the net I found a forum with lots of people having the same problem, they had even contacted Samsung who admitted the migration software didn't work with windows 10 but there is a solution, download a cloning software like Macrium Reflect and copy your hard drive which I did and then after fitting the 850 into my laptop surprise surprise the migration software recognised it as a Samsung drive and allowed me to do all the optimisation etc.. It now works brilliantly, very quick indeed.
I hope this will help somebody else and save you some time and frustration! I have knocked a star off for the software problems.
Copying large files is a breeze between old and new drive, I did a non scientific test of transferring a gig between old style and the ssd drives and the speed up was amazing. Even things like Directory Opus respond much much faster it's like the cpu has now developed ESP!
The software that comes with it is more than adequate for cloning your existing drive or you can install fresh which I did.
Expensive as they are when I can afford 3tb SSD's that will be my next 5 purchases, so Mr Samsung if your reading this let me know.
I play Elite Dangerous and it loads in a breeze and any hard loading does not cause the dreaded stutter in graphics.
This simple upgrade has made computing a joy again, a real joy.
i bought this to replace an internal HD on a laptop and bought an enclosure with USB cable to clone existing disk to the SSD.
samsung cloning software works very well and is easy to use. select source disk and target disk and start copying.
Samsung also provide a utility, samsung magician, to optimize the disk after install. i have set mine up for Max reliability, although it can be set up for Max Performance or Max storage.
drive was easy to install and performance is very good. was apprehensive that it would not be recognized or boot files would be corrupted or missing, but there was no problem at all. boot up times have gone from 1m 45sec to around 45 seconds. the other biggest performance difference is in launching programs. Word and Excel just pop up in a second. people can get obsessed with the latest processors with the most cores, but often its other components that are the performance bottleneck and old hard disks are an obvious culprit.
i have a SATA2 (3Gbps) interface in my laptop, and its been a worthy performance upgrade for a reasonable price. no thoughts of replacing my laptop now for the next couple of years at least.
this drive supports SATA3 (6Gbps) and i imagine it would fly in something that supports that.
