Good but the software doesn't work
Comments about Samsung 500GB 2.5 " Internal State Drive:
The drive is good, and was easy to install. My pc is now faster. But the software that came with it did not work and I had to find a different way to copy the data from my old drive.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Outstanding Performance - Easy Transfer
from Washington DC
All worked as advertised. I was overly cautious because I just couldn't believe that the transfer of data would be that easy. Well, it was, and the drive worked flawlessly out of the box. I just wish i had bout a larger drive.
Very fast drive!!!
from Eureka, CA, USA
Boots Windows very fast. I'm amazed how fast games and applications load. BF4 loads in a fraction of the time. One issue save yourself time don't bother with mirror software tried it could have backed up my files and did a clean install faster. It took over an hour just to mirror and had many Issues after files wouldn't load or missing ended up doing fresh install anyway. Install was very quick, completed and updated in less than an hour.
I like it.
Seems to do almost everything people claim it will.

This is my first SATA3 SSD and now my Windows 8 boots up in 15 seconds compared to 1 minute on my previous SATA 3 HDD. I would buy another Samsung SSD in the future.It's the best choice to speed up your PC
PS4 Speed Demon
Loaded this one up on my PS4 and installation of games are blazingly fast! Installed Killzone 4 in 37 seconds as compared to the original HDD which took around 5 minutes. It boots in 15 seconds as compared to half a minute on HDD!
Samsung SSD - lightning fast
Installed two SSDs in my desktop in a RAID and one in my laptop computer. Works great. Significantly faster than the Hard Drives I replaced.
Wow what a difference on my MacBook Pro!
I know there are many people saying this drive is not compatible, or does not run fast when installed on a Mac. I can assure you that this WILL run on a mac, and it runs FAST! This drive brought my early 2011 macbook pro back to life. The boot time went from 1.5 minutes to around 15 seconds. unbelievable... As of right now I highly recommend this drive; it is like night and day when compared to a standard platter based drive. And the price is right too!
Great SSD but pitiful software
from miami, fl.
The SSD is fast but it causes certain features on my motherboard from not being detected. My MB is an NVIDIA chipset so not only does Samsung's Magician not detect its own drive but causes NVIDIA's control panel not display the configurable BIOS settings from the OS. Therefore the famous Turbo Cache that attracted me so much about this drive is useless and I can't take advantage of it. I am dual booting Windows 7 Ultimate on the EVO and on a RAID Velociraptor. On the RAID system the NVIDIA control panel displays all the features but in the SSD it doesn't even though all the drivers have been installed. The reason I dual boot on the EVO is to have a clean copy of the OS and no other unnecessary programs in the background running except for the video editing software which is the only purpose for this OS.
Best value available
from buffalo, ny
This seems to me to be the best SSD out there. -Performance is great with innovative features like Turbowrite. -Samsung has done their homework & out of the box, this just works! -Install was simple People seem overly worried about SSD longevity in general & specifically TLC nand. EVERYTHING I've read on the subject indicates these solid state drives will easily outlast a rotating platter "standard" drive - do your research, you'll find these to be a fantastic upgrade for your computer!
