Rated 5 out of 5 by biofos An impressive speed demon
Samsung strikes again. This SSD is wonderfully quick. I use it only for Windows and programmes that need to be on the C drive. All other stuff is on a traditional drive. When booting the PC spends about 17 seconds in BIOS screen and takes about 11 seconds to boot Windows & Pro. That's mighty quick.

Found this drive to be good value and was what I needed. As always drive arrived when I was told, and the drive was securely packaged. Not much else I can say the drive was bought to replace a faulty drive. Machine has now been rebuilt and is booting a lot quicker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dave666 Great product
This item was delivered within the time frame given by Scan.co.uk.It was packaged well and the couriers phoned before hand to say it was on its way. I am not very good with putting new things in my pc, but my friends who run a pc repair business said the installation instructions were straight forward and easy to follow and that the transfer of operating system and files was no problem. Boot up time is amazing, no more going away to make a cup of tea when turning on the computer. I would definitely recommend this product if your looking for a faster boot time and faster access to files. Also, cannot fault Scan .co.uk's customer service, polite friendly and helpful.

I knew that SSD's were faster then HDD's but I never imagined the difference in boot times and browser load times also most programs run much faster. I still think they are a bit pricey but hopefully in time as they become more prevalent then prices will drop.

This is not the first Samsung storage device I have had both traditional and SSD type the quality is excellent across the range. This Evo is fast and well priced as well as having low current use which keeps the power supply happy and temperature down.
Being a data hog, this has been used as my boot and programs drive with limited use as a data store, I run it with a second 1TB drive for data, though the possibilities are there at 250GB to have this as your only HDD.
Boot time is obviously quick, the software provided with the drive did not get used, but it looks as though it would do a clone of your existing C: drive and make the upgrade easy

Rated 5 out of 5 by owenros Nice sized SSD and slightly better on IOPS than the Force
Just clone your old hard drive to this bad boy using something like Acronis and get a massive performance boost.
I Turned an old Celeron 1.5GB desktop pc with just 1.5 GB of ram loaded with W7 and unuseable to a very fast machine cloned from my Windows 8.1 desktop setup. Speed noticeably quicker than a new corei5 with 4GB Ram and no SSD.
Boots in 20 seconds - not bad for a Celeron
Any 64bit pc can benefit from this treatment but of course you have to activate and pay for the Windows software online (or buy from Scan)
