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 Good quality drive I have several of these drives, of varying sizes. I had a few installation problems initially with the first one I got (they were problems with the PC it turned out!), but never had a problem with any of them since. Good data rate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stronger replacement - hopefully! I needed to replace an SSD that was starting to fail as I used it to keep all my current video project(s) on, I decided to go for the Samsung 860 EVO 500Gb as it comes with a 5 year manufactures guarantee and hopefully this will last longer than the previous manufacturers disc has, it was easily cloned using a docking station. As the new disc is not a boot disc I cannot comment on any boot-up speeds/times, but seems to have a similar IOPS to the original it replaces, I find that most SSDs seem to perform reasonably well anyway, it just seems to be a matter of what you want them for, and most importantly are they going to last! - hopefully this one will.

Questions & Answers

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.
