Rated 5 out of 5 by RaptorSST Excellent NUC System Disk
I've been using Samsung SSDs for a while now, in laptops and PCs. This mSATA version is as good as the usual 2.5" drives, just alot smaller.
This is the second one of these that I've used recently and is running Windows 2012R2 server, Oracle &Tomcat quite happily in my Intel NUC. The other was a replacement laptop system drive for a cutomer.
Simple to install, just push into the mSATA socket and screw in a screw at the other end, I had the whole thing set up in less than 10 minutes, easy.

I own a Lenovo U410 laptop that has a 32 GB SSD cache in it. Every month without fail this cache would stop working and I'd have to fight my laptop and Intel Rapid Start Technology to get the cache back.(and my laptop back up to an acceptable speed).
I tried hunting around for a replacement HD for the laptop with a built in SSD cache when I found out the SSD cache was actually a separate mSATA SSD that could be replaced!
So after some quick googling I came across this Samsung EVO 850 mSATA HD and took the plunge.
It installed into my laptop fine, I shrunk the primary partition on the mechanical HD, then loned it to the mSATA SSD and then changed the boot order in the BIOS and BINGO BONGO I've got my laptop back to top speed on a 256 GB SATA and I'm dead happy. My laptop is faster than it's ever been and I've got more space than I ever had before.
Scan price was excellent, along with a good delivery time and a reputable carrier to get my parcel to me. Can't complain about anything!
