Samsung’s unique and innovative 3D V-NAND flash memory architecture is a breakthrough in overcoming the density limitations, performance and endurance of today’s conventional planar NAND architecture. 3D V-NAND is fabricated by stacking 32 cell layers vertically over one another rather than decreasing the cells dimensions and trying to fit itself onto a fixed horizontal space resulting in higher density and better performance utilising a smaller footprint.

Achieve the ultimate read/write performance to maximise your everyday computing experience with Samsung’s TurboWrite technology. You not only obtain more than a 10% better user experience than 840 EVO but up to 1.9x faster random write speeds for 120/250 GB models as well. The 850 EVO delivers the top of its class performance in sequential read (540 MB/s) and write (520 MB/s) speeds.

Blazingly fast. CorelDraw starts in under 4 seconds.
One negative to watch out for is that it comes without cables. I was just lucky to have enough of the necessary cables in my box.
Otherwise very easy to install. And if you want to avoid doing a fresh install of the OS, it comes with the necessary software to transfer your installation from your HD.

Albertus, South Africa. 8 September 2015

Incredibly quick, the difference between this and having a HDD installed on your laptop, is like night and day. Also I like the 5 year warranty, I have had my laptop for 6 years, and had to replace the HDD twice. Hopefully this is a thing of the past now.

Nico, South Africa. 13 October 2015

By far the best SSD value by far. Strangely lightweight but works as well as my proffesional SSD's

Mike, South Africa. 11 September 2015

Another great product from Samsung. Super fast! +1

Jethro, South Africa. 7 September 2015

Lightning fast. Dropped my computer's cold boot time from 105 seconds to under 30 seconds. Applications open almost immediately. Only complaints are that it does not come with a sata cable or a sata/usb adapter to use the bundled cloning software. Highly recommended.

GsW, South Africa. 20 February 2015

I removed the initial 5400 rpm hdd that came with notebook. Installed the ssd, boot time with hdd was 90 sec. Boot time with ssd 15 sec. 15 seconds might sound like a long time, but I chose max reliability in samsung magician software. That setting removes fast boot and hibernation in win8.1, with max performance(fast boot and hibernation enabled) notebook boots in FIVE seconds!!!

Chad, South Africa. 13 July 2015

Installed on mid 2012 macbook pro and worked like a charm. Chalk and cheese difference on performance.

Musa, South Africa. 18 February 2016

This is a fantastic product, managed to migrate my data from my 160GHDD to the SSD in under 30mins and have a boot time of under 7-10 sec.s

Jared, South Africa. 22 October 2015

Very impressed with this SSD.

Graham, South Africa. 12 February 2016

Good entry level SSD - got my under 20sec boot time in windows 10 with a Intel core i3.

Chris, South Africa. 16 January 2017

Great product at a very reasonable price.

Albert, South Africa. 14 June 2016

Exceptional speed.
Included in the box is only the SSD drive and some software.
You'll need some sort of Samsung drive-to-usb connector if you want to use the software.
I've used a bootable freeware cloning software with a 3rd party enclosure. Worked flawless

The difference in speed is unthinkable. Very happy! (except for the price...)

Jesse, South Africa. 6 January 2017

Literally the best thing you can do for reviving an older Macbook! I couldn't believe the speed difference in terms of boot time, file transfer and OS speed improvements.

Shuaib, South Africa. 2 February 2016

Lightning fast. Could not have believed it wouldv'e made such a massive improvement!
No brainer

Kevin, South Africa. 8 February 2017

Absolutely recommend this if you want to see an unbelievable increase in the speed of your Mac. You'll want to bore your friends showing them how fast it is....

Chris, South Africa. 6 December 2016

If you are in the market for SSD's , stick to SAMSUNG EVO series of SSD's.
Blazing fast start-us on Windows.
15 seconds on my Win-7
Great product.

Roderick, South Africa. 8 February 2016

Client is satisfied so far.

Jerrard, South Africa. 21 November 2016

Good product - Startup and Shutdown down times are much faster. Effectively makes it feel as if you have a new pc, which is pretty nice :). However, the data migration software that comes bundled with it isn't great. The first time I used, it failed - had to erase all the data, then use it again. Worked on the second try, but it was a bit of a mission. Might be worth using different data migration software, they all do pretty much the same thing.

Also, note that it doesn't come with a SATA cable. You will have to buy this separately (they are quite cheap - or you can use the one from your CD/DVD drive if you don't use it much :P).

Leon, South Africa. 2 December 2016

WHAT?! this thing is insane, installed it in my old computer box with most of the other components coming from pre 2010, including the motherboard. This hard drive is performing miracles because i swear my computer is now faster than my i5 laptop! im talking about boot time, opening apps and the overall feel of my computer is snappy, everything is more responsive. i highly recommend this ssd!

Anwar, South Africa. 2 February 2016

This is one the best SSD's if the the best in this price range. If configured properly you will receive full speed as indicated on the manufacturer's website. Anyone using a mechanical hard drive as an OS drive shouldn't hesitate to upgrade to this, it will change the way you use your PC forever.

Josh, South Africa. 22 February 2017

Awesome product with nice warranty period

Robert, South Africa. 14 March 2016

My installer had trouble to get my old motherboard (very old) to recognize the drive.
I ended up replacing the motherboard, however once we got it working it runs like lightning.
I am very impressed with the speed even with a small CPU and little ram. I use this computer as a server and the drive performs excellent.
