Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on January 25, 2018
The drive performs fantastically. It truly is a successor to the 850 Evo. I purchased this drive to upgrade my laptop, and right off the bat I noticed a huge improvement. Boot to desktop was about 7 seconds. Would absolutely buy again.

Edit: For any of those curious, the specs of my laptop are as follows:
I7-3632qm Ivy Bridge @ 2.2Ghz
16gb 1600Mhz RAM
Radeon HD 7670M GPU
Samsung 250gb 860 Evo

On a side note, if you are looking to upgrade a laptop and use this drive as your main drive and are looking for a more straight forward approach, cloning your current drive over to the new SSD is fairly straight forward.

I purchased a Started USB 3.0 to 2.5" drive converter for roughly $10 in conjunction with Macrium Reflect Free for this, and it worked perfectly with this drive. The software is super simple to use and is fully compatible with this SSD.

UPDATE: After installing the "Samsung Magician" software and enabling "Rapid Mode," the performance of this drive has increased drastically. The second picture shows the increase from the base performance.
