easy to install, fast performanceAuthor Name: Geek1962
It took me 20 minutes from opening the case to booting the laptop. Once I ran the data migration software boot up took less than 1 minute, from power up to connected to the internet.

Installation in to Samsung Notebook 7 SpinAuthor Name: JoeVitz
This model is an i7 chip machine and designed/specs to have an additional SSD drive. Because of that, I would expect that the partnership between Samsung and Best Buy would have specific instructions on how to physically, and electronically install the additional drive. After a few attempts at phone calls and attempts at chat to get intelligence, I was directed to go to the Geek Squad. Geek Squad did not know how to correctly install and configure the drive either. A spent $150 to the Geek Squad to electronically get the drive running. After contacting MS Assure, it turns out that the SSD drive was not implemented correctly, and it took 3 hours with them to re-image the drive and configure it correctly. I would not change out this drive for anything. it is lightning fast as I said, but get guidance in advance from whoever is going to enable the drive. And then let it fly. it will!

Best M.2 AHCIAuthor Name: arnabdt
Based on current market of SSD, this is the best M.2 AHCI ssd money can buy. With latest intel skull canyon I get full speed specified by Samsung. Happy that Samsung has 1TB version available if I need more space. If your motherboard or BIOS support NVMe then you should get 950 pro. I highly recommend this SSD.

Outstanding, First-Rate Performance, Reliability, and ValueAuthor Name: mej1190
I am a professional aerospace engineer for hardware and software. as such, my work challenges my development hardware often up to and beyond the published specs. these evo ssd's of which i currently have 10 in constant use have provided me with the ability to compile, store, manipulate data in truly an outstanding and highly reliable fashion for a large, complex, and interrelated cross-platform project that involves all the latest windows, mac, and linux servers and their companion workstations. from machine language to c/c++ to c# to java, to sql, to html5 and some proprietary systems i have enjoyed a development lab that is virtually quiet and certainly cooler than when my equipment used rotational storage devices. i have taken the time to compare the speed between my older development and the current setups. i have re-compiled and compared the overall completion times and find that in every (my specific) case my overall time to completion is simply faster even on some of my older, much slower processors. i heartily recommend these units to even the most casual user. i have a batch of the (even faster) EVO 512's coming for an extension of the current development and am expecting to be even more pleased with these Samsung products. (not sure this is appropriate but i have tested other manufacturer's products and have chosen Samsung for the final production deliveries).
