  • The boot time is ridiculously fast and the whole thing feels like a new machine.
  • My games are super fast to load in now. Significantly less stutter and lagging means im getting more fps than before.
  • Works great. Really fast starting up the games (specifically Ark and Space Engineers) and no time outs!

Samsung 860 PRO 1 TB SATA 2.5 Inch Internal Solid State Drive
  • I replaced a 500GB HDD with this 1TB SSD. Good SATA connect.
  • Fastest real world SATA SSD I've used, better reliability specs for peace of mind.
  • Its fast and reliable, and my laptop stay a little longer on battery.
  • The 2.5in SATA form factor works well with the Dell 2.5in to 3.5in adapters that fit into the existing drive caddies.
  • Having bought this I realized that the performance is limited by the SATA Interface.
Samsung 860 EVO SATA 2.5-inch Internal SSD

  • Excellent SSD. Installed inside my 27 inch late 2013 iMac and it has decreased the start up time from 2 min 15 seconds to just 30 seconds!
  • Easy to install as I was only replacing an existing drive.
  • Worked straight out of the box for a clean Windows 10 install.
  • Installation was easier than expected and the hard drive works incredibly well.
