Reviews

Makes everything load up fast. Highly recommend this SSD to anyone. Comes with helpful software. Works very fast even on older sata 3gb ports

Best price point per size and performance at the moment. And I trust Samsung above all.

from completed build THE KILLER

I can say only that this is the best out there ;) fast, very fast...i have my OS here and only the actual game that i play until i finished it :)

Got this for an amazing price. My pc boots up extremely fast thanks to this little guy.

Samsung 850 EVO Pro SSD is just FAST.. Have it split into 2 partitions. One of about 20G for Linux Mint 64 and the Rest for /home .... There's no place like /home !! Paid the Extra bit of Cash to get the Pro just to see the little "Red" Tab on the Drive to match up with the Red and Black Deadpool Theme. Honestly

What can I say? Amazingly fast. Could not believe the difference when I swapped out my Patriot Sata II SSD with this one. Chalk and cheese. Magician software works very well and was easily able to speed up the time it takes for applications as well as Windows to start.

from completed build Savannah and John 1.0

Transformed my experience on my computer. Coming from a 5400 RPM HDD, this makes me feel like I stepped 30 years into the future as boot and load times are virtually non-existent.

from completed build Delcar

Wouldn't buy separately. The Evo is a better choice. I got this on a combo deal that came in line with other ssd's so I got it. Well, now that I have it, it's great. System boots in 5 secs. Would get again(with combo deal). (:

Good SSD. Allows for super fast boot times. 21 seconds is what I get coupled with the FX-8350.

from completed build A Graduation Gift To Myself

It's a lot faster than my laptop. It boots faster than my laptop can wake up. I would recommend something larger if you plan to put files and games on it.
