I replaced the slow 5400 hard drive that came with our Asus E15, and used this for the boot drive for the laptop, and all I can say, is what a difference.Before changing over, laptop would take about 3 minutes before it was fully ready , but with the SSD, it is down to about 25 seconds.
Blazing fast.The Samsung migration software worked perfect, and make sure you also install the Samsung Magician software, to make this SSD really do what it does best.Easy to install in our laptop, inserted into the vacant slot, and tightened down the retaining screw, and it was good to go,You just have to make sure that you go into your bios when all is installed and ready , to change the boot order to recognize the SSD first,Just love it.I have had one now in my desktop ( 850 SSD Pro by Samsung), and the thing is amazing.. Never had a problem.
It takes some kind of M2-3 screw, but I had to use a M2-4 with a few washers as spacers.
I want to buy the 960PRO before,but the 960PRO is not fast as test,so I decide buy a SATA SSD,this 850 is the samsung,I believe samsung because this brand has high quality.
I can't comment on durability as I have had this product for one month only but I can say that the performance improved a lot.
I purchased this for a gaming laptop, installed it, but was not able to use it as the supplied software refused to copy the OS from the existing C drive.
Keeps failing with an error even after updating the transfer software.
So disappointing as a boot, will use on a rebuilt computer or as an external drive.
So do buy this if you don't also want to reinstall your boot OS on this SSD.
