M.2 850 evoAuthor Name: 2ndflaco
Awesome ssd. However... not as easy to install. You have to down load data migration and magician from the Internet. Should come with instructions. Also... it did not shut down regular had drove. It kept crashing. Had to disconnect had drive. Then boot up.

Dramatically boosts performanceAuthor Name: tsd1
I bought a new laptop with a 1 TB HDD and bought this to increase the speed of starting Windows and frequently used programs, and it was well worth it!

Performance on video gamesAuthor Name: suuski
this hard drive boots the computer, the part on loading the windows and all other video games. To have a total absolutely performance I suggest to switch all your hard drive to SSD.

Makes a good computer betterAuthor Name: Ares1977
No problems with the install on an Acer Aspire VN7-561G, used EaseUS for the migration. I am happy that the Samsung Magician worked. (In the past it wasn't supported)

Most affordable upgrade to your laptopAuthor Name: Namykoo
Read so many reviews and decided to go with Samsung Evo SSD M.2 to upgrade my storage for my laptop. Booting is 3x faster than my previous HDD. Overall great product and price.

Couldn't be happier with my purchaseAuthor Name: Thanatopsis
I had still been using traditional hard drives before now and had no idea what I was missing. A few months ago I built a new system based around an Intel 4790k CPU(with liquid cooling), 16GB 1866MHz memory, 2x GTX970 in SLI, and a plain old hard drive, a Western Digital 2TB Caviar Black that I had already owned a few years. I was well aware the HDD was the main bottleneck in my system but really underestimated how much it was holding it back from it's true potential. When I installed the 850 EVO 500GB M.2, I figured I was do for a clean install of Windows anyways and wanted to try out Windows 10 so that's what I did. It's a hair longer now, but when it was a completely clean installation with nothing installed other than drivers, it booted to my desktop in 7 seconds. Compared to probably two minutes or more(never really timed it) on my previous Windows 7 installation. I was sold on SSD's right there. Even when running programs installed on my other hard drives, everything feels smoother and more responsive. Games load amazingly fast and there's no more occasional slowdowns as part of a map is loaded or the like. I plan to in the near future get another SSD and have everything other than movies, music, pictures, and the like on something solid state. So basically, if you have a moderately decent system but still use a traditional HDD, get yourself an SSD. It'll feel like a new computer and like myself, you'll probably end up wondering why you didn't do so long ago.

M2 SSD - Evo is really a game changer!Author Name: SamsungRay
This has to be single best investment I have ever made into my PC. Finally got a new motherboard to replace an older unit and was lucky to have had the M.2 socket on the board. Had spent a lot of time re-installing my OS on my old SATA drive...but then I bought this SSD and in less than 30 min I was up and running with the new Evo drive...this drive is amazing. Can't wait to get another one...maybe I'll get a 1TB SSD, but for sure it will be a Samsung!

No more platter drives for meAuthor Name: SumaFitz
I wanted to go with a slightly faster m.2 SSD for my new build but the budget got in the way. That said, this one has been brilliant. My system loads so fast I don't have time to do anything else. access to my files is instant and long load times on games is a distant memory. For a balance of value, performance, and reliability, this is one fantastic choice.
