The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 250GB Samsung 860 EVO, 2.5” SSD Used to replace the original HDD in a dual core Atom panel PC, running W7 Pro. Cloned the original onto the SSD and performed a W10 Pro upgrade. I now have a dual core Atom N2800 running W10 Pro with an acceptable responce time. I'll be ordering a couple more for other PCs C:\ drives to speed up their response. Recommended HDD replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Samsung SSD I bought a hard drive. It works very well. Providing free company marketing wasn't part of the deal. Enough said!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an Excellent little Device :-) Ok, comparing size price and speed, I thaught that this was a good Buy regarding quality of parts and reputation..... i was so Shocked... let me explain... So, like most things nowadays, you download the software and drivers etc from the manufacturers website (Google is your friend). This actually is paired with whats called Magician software, which is its own console and updates the firmware and benchmarks the drive (honestly) what i found was a very interesting application which is called "over provisioning" which in actuality takes a % of your drive (which you can choose) and creates a software raid 0, which doubles the drives speed, so in my case i chose 50GB and got something like 1,150MB/s which is insane speed for an older 2 core Pc on Sata 3 connection (especially considering price) so im well impressed !!!!!!!!!! The software also does something to the memory to speed that up a little as well, so its win win all around..... For me, its made an older Pc, into something i can get more use out of (i send Rar'ed files to it on the network and unzip them there, as its a quarter of the time it normally takes, and on over 10TB than that's quiet a saving on Blu-Ray files). Oh, and on the Samsung site, there's also free cloning software should you need it to transfer your O/S over to it, you would need to buy a Usb 3.0 SSD caddy though which is only a few quid, and well worth the value as you can place your old drive in it afterwards and have a portable storage device for very little money ! Absolutely delighted, came VERY well packaged and safe from Scan .. Thanks....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laptop Upgrade I recently bought a HP 15 laptop for light home and office work, which came with an Intel i3 CPU, 4GB memory and 1TB 5400 RPM hard disk. Right out the box it was incredibly slow, even after removing all the bloatware. I upgraded the laptop with 8GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR4 2400 memory and a 250GB Samsung 860 EVO SDD and I'm very pleased with the performance increase. Now a perfectly usable everyday laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The standard for other SSD's to follow Buy lots of these and fit them as replacements for standard hard drives all the time. Always impressed with fast boot times and when you click on something it happens !! Option to set in fast mode makes things even better!! Can't recommend these drives highly enough especially as the "Magician" software associated gives you great control over firmware updates etc

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product Does what it says on the tin! You now have to download the migration software from Samsung instead of getting a disc but it works well providing you remember that you have to run it from the machine that you are migrating from. The source disc is hard coded as the C:\ drive, you can't change it! Definite speed improvement on the machine, especially noticeable at boot up,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Desktop computer faster than ever Wow these SSD drives are absolutely amazing. They are so quick at either reading or writing information. They will put all previous hard drives out to pasture. The Magician software makes copying your old drive to the new SSD drive hassle free and so easy to complete. You won't regret buying one of these. You will actually regret not buying one.

Does this come with the USB to SATA cable required for cloning the drive?

Asked by: JackK
Don't think so. Mine certainly didn't.
