    Samsung 860 EVO reviews

    500GB 860 EVO SATA III 2.5" Internal SSD is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Drive! Installed in my Toshiba L55 laptop, cloned the Toshiba 128GB SSD to the� Samsung 500GB EVO 2.5" SSD using the downloadable Samsung Data Migration software, EVO installed and booted up with all the new extra space, Windows 10 shows 465GB, took about two hours for the clone, disassemble, dust cleaning, install, reassembly, and first boot. Nice, no surprises! Installed the Samsung Magician Software which handles the firmware updates and options, made my choices, and then set the Magician for manual start.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast SSD Chose this brand for their superiority in controllers and longevity. In the past, Samsung EVO and Pro SSD's had unconditional 5 and 10 year warranties.� Now they have set TB's written limitations within the warranty time period.� Makes you wonder.� Overall, fast and best priced for value in the EVO line.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not getting SSD to work yet in my notebook I purchased a 500GB Samsung and a separate SATA-USB interface, and when I plugged it into my Lenovo Yoga 2, the notebook recognizes the SATA wire but does not show an attached drive, so there is nothing to boot to get things cloning.� This may be owing to the particular hardware configuration I have, so I will try this on an older laptop later this summer.� The minimal instructions that come with the Samsung drive are not very illuminating, leading one to believe that the thing will boot itself up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great purchase Purchased this a couple of weeks ago to replace the hard drive in my 2012 Macbook Pro. Its like having a new computer. Very fast boot and access times to all my apps.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Careful with AMD-powered laptops I would give this SSD 5 stars as once it's installed it works flawlessly, but there needs to be a heads-up that there is a possibility that the SSD will not play nicely with AMD-powered laptops.� I bought this as a means of giving new life to my mother's Samsung NP365E5C-S02UB laptop.� It came originally with: 4GB of DDR3-1333 RAM 500GB 5400rpm AMD A8-4500M with AMD Radeon 7640G APU Graphics (512MB Shared VRAM) I gradually upgraded it to 16GB DDR3-1600 RAM for improved Windows performance, but the HDD proved to be a bottleneck.� I had debated going with other SSDs, but having used Samsung SSDs in both my desktop and laptop (and previous laptops) I decided to stay with the brand.� I bought one, and installed it in my Mom's laptop... and was stuck in infinite BIOS loops. I had to do a LOT of research on Samsung SSDs, Samsung Laptops, and AMD chipsets to discover that the only way to make the SSD to work right is to disable secure boot once Samsung Data Transfer is done doing the transfer.� The Transfer software itself was spot-on, but the architecture of the laptop is NOT permissive to storage upgrades. If you're going to put this SSD into an older AMD laptop, be wary of the possibility of BIOS issues preventing optimal performance.� If you can disable secure boot long enough to get the SSD into the "good list" then you're in for a treat, as the laptop now is far more responsive than it was even when new.�� I'd recommend it without reservation for Intel-based computers, but I'd be very cautious with AMD rigs... especially older ones.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent drive I have been replacing older hard drives in Mac computers with these Samsung Solid State Drives - basically any Mac 2010 or newer with an original HD. �Speeds the computers up faster than when they were brand new. �This was for a 2013 iMac, nearly 3 times as fast. �Easy way to bring new life to an older computer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased this again I was so pleased with the increased speed performance after replacing the hard drive with the Samsung ssd on my 2012 Macbook Pro, that I bought another one for my daughter’s. She’s very pleased also. I always have a great experience buying from B&H. Fast shipping and great prices.
