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

500GB Samsung 860 EVO, 2.5” SSD, SATA III 6Gb/s, MJX, MLC 3D V-NAND, 512MB Cache, Read 550MB/s, Write 520MB/s, 98k/90k is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drive, exactly what was needed I already owned a smaller capacity version of the same, so when my tower's ancient old HDD started to show signs of imminent death, it was a no-brainer to pick this up. Worked great after overcoming a few initial hurdles (put in place by the rest of my hardware, I think) to recognise the drive. Very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my laptop as it should be... My "premium" laptop has never had premium performance, despite an i7 processor and bags of memory. I had long suspected the mechanical disk was the issue but never had the will to open the case and replace it. On reflection, I should have done it after purchase! The laptop now starts up in seconds rather than "make a cup of tea" while it starts up. Apps open swiftly and the whole experience is much faster. Did I need the 1Tb of storage or would I have preferred a fast laptop? 500Gb is plenty and the speed is now amazing. Thanks Scan for a speedy and effortless purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, best price This SSD is high quality at a reasonable price. I bought it from an old laptop, it speeds up its operation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New lease of life in Macbook pro I swapped out my old HDD Drive for this SSD Drive, my old Macbook from 2011 boots up in seconds, whereas before I could go make a brew and come back before it had opened. So pleased I bought a second one for my other Macbook.
Date published: 2020-06-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and efficient Bought as a slight upgrade as my original samsung SSD C drive was only 128gb which was tiny. This is really light weight and much smaller than my 2TB HHD that I'm using as the primary file storage in my computer.

Does it come with an os?

My old 5200rpm hard drive just completely died and I don’t have windows 10 install disc so do I have to buy a new one? I might be able to get a disc off of my friend but I’m not sure if he still has.
Asked by: HailNvidia
No OS. You will need to install one. If the license code for your previous version is available try contacting microsoft to see if you can download win 10. Alternatively you could try one of the Linux variants that are a free OS to download. While I generally use windows, I have revived a number of old pcs, including an old sony laptop from 2003 with Linux.

What else will I need to fit this?

Hi, I'm looking to buy this to replace the hard drive in my laptop. That drive is 9.5mm thick (it's a Toshiba MQ01ABD100), whereas I see that this is 6.8mm. Could you advice what other things I will need to buy to make this new drive fit in my laptop? With regards to the thickness and any other issues. Thanks
Asked by: EddyTheB
The Samsung drive you are looking to purchase with is 6.5 inch or 2.5 thickness will fit it nearly all laptops.
