    3D V-NAND TECHNOLOGY
    Samsung’s innovative 3D V-NAND flash memory architecture breaks through density, performance, and endurance limitations of today’s conventional planar NAND architecture. Samsung 3D V-NAND stacks 32 cell layers vertically resulting in higher density and better performance utilizing a smaller footprint.
     
    INCREDIBLE READ/WRITE SPEEDS
    Achieve incredible read/write performance to maximize your everyday computing experience with Samsung’s TurboWrite technology. You can obtain up to 1.9x faster performance than the award-winning Samsung 840 EVO. The 850 EVO delivers class-leading performance* in sequential read (540MB/s) and write (520MB/s) speeds. Plus, gain optimized random performance in all QD for better real-world performance. 
     
    * Performance compared to 3-Bit MLC-class SSD drives
     
    ENHANCED RAPID MODE
    Samsung’s Magician software enables RAPID Mode for up to 2x faster performance* by utilizing unused PC memory (DRAM) as a high-speed cache. The newest version of Samsung Magician supports up to a 4 GB cache on a system with 16 GB of DRAM. 
     
    * Compared to same drive w/out RAPID enabled

With enhanced long-term reliability, the 850 EVO assures longterm dependable performance of up to 30% longer than the previous generation 840 EVO. 
     
    * Measured by Terrabytes Written (TBW)
    ** Measured with Sustained Performance 12hr Random Write Test
    *** Highest among 3-Bit MLC-class SSD drives
     
    IMPROVED ENERGY EFFICIENCY
    The 850 EVO delivers significantly longer battery life on your notebook* with a controller designed and optimized for 3D V-NAND that supports Device Sleep for Windows at a highly efficient 2mW. The 850 EVO supports 25% better power efficiency than the 840 EVO during write operations thanks to ultra-efficient 3D V-NAND only consuming half the energy than that of traditional Planar 2D NAND. 
     
    * Compared to standard hard drive & previous generation SSDs
     
    SECURE DATA THROUGH ADVANCED AES 256 ENCRYPTION
    The 850 EVO comes fortified with the latest hardware-based full disk encryption engine. The AES 256-bit hardware encryption secures data without any performance degradation and complies with TCG Opal 2.0. Easily integrate into Windows with Microsoft e-drive IEEE1667 to keep your data protected at all times.
     
    DYNAMIC THERMAL GUARD PROTECTION
    The 850 EVO’s Dynamic Thermal Guard constantly monitors and maintains ideal temperatures for the drive to operate in optimal conditions to ensure the integrity of your data. The Thermal Guard automatically throttles temperatures down when temperatures rise above optimal critical threshold. This protects your data while maintaining responsiveness to help ensure your computer is always safe from overheating.

    Is this compatible with Ps4s/ps4 pros?
    A shopper on Mar 31, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Yes, this SSD would be compatible with PS4.
    Will this work with a MacBook Pro 13" Late 2011?
    Jeremiah W on Jan 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I do not have or work on MACs, but, if it takes a 2.5" drive, it will work and work significantly faster.
    Is this drive compatible with HP 15-f272wm?
    A shopper on Dec 4, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. As long as it has a vacant SATA slot inside the laptop then it will work with the laptop. I hope this clarifies it.

    Great SSD!!!
    I'm a fan of Samsung SSD's, they're the best. I bought one of the original 830 series years ago (still in service) and fell in love with them. Each new series brings more improvements and the 850's are fantastic! I have my favorite software to clone drives but decided to give the supplied software a shot. I found it easy to use and performed quickly and flawlessly. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.

    I highly recommend this SSD!

    PROS: FAST, FASTER, FASTEST!
    Low power requirements
    Runs cool
    Reliable
    Compact
    Good support software

    CONS: May require a shim to fit some laptops
    Since it's harder to recover data from a failed SSD, it's more important to maintain a current image
    Not as inexpensive as mechanical hard drives....yet

    Works fine
    Works great, easy to setup (in my case) with Samsung supplied utilities. You might need an additional external USB to SATA enclosure depending upon your application.

    Great SSD at blazing speeds!
    The Samsung 850 EVO series has some great speeds. Did I benchmark it? No. Plenty of others have done that. What I did was install it, load Windows 10 in less than 10 minutes, and now boot my computer in seconds.

    PROS: - Fast speed
    - Easy installation

    CONS: None

    Tremendous delivery
    Haven't had a chance to try the SSD yet but wanted to comment on the fast and exceptional delivery.
    The SSD was delivered 2 days after ordering and came early in the morning by a very polite and friendly person who actually came to the door, rang the doorbell and waited for me to answer No just tossing the package on the porch and running.
    I actually had to sign for it.. He actually said thanks and wished me a good day. Almost fell over.
    Great service!!

    Regret waiting so long
    I treated myself to this drive as a birthday gift to myself. My Dell laptop is over 4 years old running Windows 7 Pro. I cloned my drive and replaced the HDD with this SSD. It is like having a new computer. Everything is blazing fast. I think my 4 year old computer is now outperforming the newer ones in my office. Very easy to do. I have average tech skills and found it very easy.

    Great SSD
    Love it. Windows 10 boots faster but still not great. Once up and running it is really quick

    Bringing new life to some older Mac Minis
    If you have the skills/patience to replace the HDDs of 2010/2011 Mac Minis, you can't go wrong with these Samsung Drives.

    PROS: Great little piece of hardware.

    CONS: Not a Monoprice-branded product so not inexpensive, but they are competitive with Amazon, B&H, and others.
    August 26, 2016
    Everything?
    It really does speed up your machine tremendously.

    PROS: Great speed improvement. Migration software works well.

    CONS: No hd cable or hard drive mount. The mount isn't really necessary, but the cable is.You need a usb to hard drive cable to transfer information from your old hard drive to the new SSD.

    Great Product at Reasonable Price, but Bundled SW is Lacking
    This is a great product that performs as expected. It's fast and light. But if you're planning on replacing your laptop drive, you need to be comfortable with removing hardware and configuring software, plus you'll need an external case & USB connection to use the bundled "cloning" software. They do not provide an option to create an image file of your existing drive to some other source (flash drive, external HD. etc.) that can then be restored to the new SSD. It ONLY allows you to "Clone" the data directly from the original drive to the Samsung SSD where both drives have to be connected to the computer at the SAME TIME. If this wasn't so cumbersome, I'd have given it 5 stars!
