Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB 2.5 inch Solid State Drive

This is a review for the Samsung EVO 850 500GB SSD.

Once it arrived I installed it on Windows 7 64bit PC using AHCI drivers and after formatting it, the actual usage space shrunk to 465GB from the advertised 500GB.

I’m not going to overstate it, by telling you it’s the best thing ever and its going make your PC a lightning fast super computer as I think those statements are over exaggerate. My PC was already pretty fast and this drive replaced a low latency 10,000 rpm Raptor drive. The speed difference I saw was only in virus checking and transferring large files. You will see bigger speed gains on a laptop since they normally come with slow (high latency) 5,400 rpm drives. The product comes with a 5 year warranty.

A CD is included to help clone as drive, for which I had no need as I was replacing a data drive and not a bootable drive.

As for its durability of it, if I get enough “YES” helpful votes I will update this review to tell you how it’s done after a few months. If you vote “NO” please tell me in the comments why you did not like my review so I can improve them in the future.

I’ve included various pictures of this drive from different angles and a crystal benchmark result. Performance wise the speeds maxed out my SATA-II bus at around 280MB.

Thanks for taking the time to read my review.

I bought this to inject a bit of renewed vigour in to a Thinkpad W500 laptop. It is a few years old now, but was a top notch machine when new, and is still no slouch by any means, but the 7200rpm Toshiba disk has always been a bottle neck, and sometimes it gets bogged down for minutes when windows is doing whatever on earth it does now and then...

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.

I bought this item after reading a review that changing an HDD to a SSD makes an unbelievable difference to the performance of a laggy PC/laptop. I had bought a laptop a couple years back with a reasonable specification which my wife was using or should I say trying to use. She only used it intermittently but on a decreasing time spiral because it was taking 10 minutes to boot open and she was constantly suffering the old spinning cursor syndrome.

I'd learned that Macbooks didn't suffer the performance issue due to the use of SSD's so I set about investigating buying a brand new laptop with an SSD installed.

I then learned that you could swap out an old hard drive (HDD) for a new SSD which allegedly would banish the spinning cursor woes of poor performance.

So I thought what the heck - let's try it.

I purchased a Sata/USB lead for a few pounds, downloaded a free cloning tool from CNET and the ordered this Samsung SSD which arrived yesterday.

I had cloned the drive and installed it inside 90 mins then the came the moment of truth - THE BIG SWITCH ON!!!

All I can say is WOW - what a difference - this laggy, slow running, nerve wrecking, frustration building machine has been transformed into a rocket ship.

I have just ordered another of these drives for my personal machine as it would be madness not to.

Buying this drive has totally revolutionized my machine. I have had a computer since the days of the CBM 64 and no matter what extra hard drive or graphic card or even motherboard that I've purchased nothing has impressed me as much as this. I knew it was going to boot faster that was a given but two minutes down to 16 seconds fully laden and ready to go just shows you what to expect.

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.
