Great SSD, Huge Improvement in Performance

Strengths:

I had my PC in for some work this past week and the guys helped me select a Samsung 860 EVO 1TB that was on sale, and I had them install it with a fresh load of Windows. It's my first SSD and I'm kicking myself for waiting so long - I timed the boot (from dark and cold up until the desktop was fully loaded) and it was well under 30 seconds. With my HDD, it took much longer. Much. During use, the response from the drive is almost instantaneous, I'm very impressed.

Weaknesses:

None so far. I have had zero issues and don't expect to have any going forward.

Additional Comments:

It's a solid product that does what the literature says it will. The Tech Guys at the Victoria Memory Express were thorough - they did what we agreed on to the letter, and I had my box back early. Very much appreciated.

One of the best SSD's out there

Strengths:

Fast, reliable drive. Data migration software from Samsung is top notch. Takes a long time to complete via USB but was flawless. Swapped out the old mechanical drive and laptop booted right up no issue. Be sure to get a SATA to USB cable if your PC/Laptop only has one connector.

Weaknesses:

On the more expensive side if you can call it a weakness, but you do get what you pay for.

Additional Comments:

Have an 8 year old Toshiba laptop that was very slow with a failing mechanical HDD. Replaced it with this SSD and the difference was night and day. Boot time to desktop in less than 10 seconds where before it took over a minute! This is my third ssd from Samsung over the years. Never had any issues with these drives, all are still going strong. Will most likely purchase another one in the near future. Very happy with this purchase and will continue to do business with the company.

Good value in relation to performance and reliability

Strengths:

Samsung has been my go to brand for SSD drives for the past several years and I haven't encountered any issues so far, even with daily heavy usage for work and gaming.

Weaknesses:

Pricing could be a bit more pocket friendly, but the value is still there.

Additional Comments:

I'll be continuing my business with Samsung for the time being, bought two drives recently and will most likely buy another 6 before the year is over.

Happy with Purchase

Strengths:

I purchased this 1TB SSD from memory express last weekend. I also bought a container so that I could fit it in my casing's hard drive bay. Also , got a Y split SATA power cable and SATA data cable. It all worked like Magic. I used Samsung's migration tool (downloaded from their website) to clone my 2TB mechanical hard drive (only 200 GB was used) to this new one (930 GB was available). You have to make sure your old drive's data is less than the size of this hard drive. You can't put 2 TB data in 1 TB hard drive. Cloning completed in about 30 minutes (200GB data) and I disconnected mechanical drive from power source and rebooted operating system to this new drive. Working great so far. No issues. I used Crystal Disk Mark tool to measure the speed and it verified the speed claimed by Samsung. Ideally speaking I would like to go M.2 but my motherboard doesn't support booting from it and Asus wont provide firmware upgrade for a 9 years old motherboard.

Weaknesses:

None so far. Everything worked to perfection so I have nothing bad to say.

Additional Comments:

I have already described all details in strengths section. Basically, everything went smooth and I was able to clone existing Windows 10 operating system and disk data to new disk using Samsung online free tool. Looking forward to eventually upgrading my motherboard and having M.2 drive.

Mr

Additional Comments:

Family stopped using new Dell Inspiron 15 which shipped only with 1TB 5400 RPM drive and 8GB RAM. It took 4 hours with my hardware to migrate 500GB of data. Boot up time dropped from 5 minutes to less than 20 seconds. Don't waste money on RAM. Drop in a SSD and bring new life to your Laptop. The Samsung migration software was straight forward and easy to use for a beginner, the hard part was getting access to the hard drive to start with. If you choose you can install SSD M.2 PCI-E drive instead.
