Awesome bang for your buck SSD here. I have two of them in Raid 0 for OS and programs and it is BLAZING fast. Loading times are almost a thing of the past.

Everything seems to load faster than before. Its my first SSD I hope it lasts a few years.

Will be upgrading to something even faster and will put it in a laptop that doesn't have a hard drive,and yes the laptop can use a SSD.

Had an absolutely huge impact on my PC's overall speed and 'feel'. While the actual performance in comparison to other SSDs is somewhat average, when compared to an HDD its a completely different order of magnitude in performance. I can't recommend this SSD enough especially at its price point.

After the issues with the Samsung 840 evo and the fake fixes, it lead me to try to avoid samsung even though the issue was fixed in the 850 evo. The bx100 is slower than an 850 evo but it is unnoticeable in real world scenarios. The drive is rock solid and still blazing fast.

I've been using this for a solid year now, and it does the job wonderfully. It's cheap and fast.
