To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this just to migrate my 10 year old laptop's hard disk HDD to a SSD, now my laptop flies!!! ok ok, maybe not fly due to an older Intel CPU, but it's much much faster than before and probably give my cranky old laptop a few more years before finally kicking the bucket! Can't go wrong with a Samsung SSD!
My kids were getting sick of Minecraft taking 10 minutes to load on their XBox One X so I installed the Samsung EVO 960 internally for them, this gave the OS a tremendous boost in response time and makes their games and levels load much faster, they also have much less trouble with assets popping in because the hard drive isn't a slow dinosaur anymore. Thank spaghetti monster the new consoles finally have solid state drives by default, if only they had listened to PC gamers sooner right?
This HD is excellent, i installed it into an older laptop that had a 5400rpm spindle drive which took over 2 minutes to boot. Once I installed this drive the laptop fully boots from turn on in less than 20 secs. So an excellent buy.
This SSD is much faster than the drive it is replacing. I do have some concern as to the longevity of the drive as, much of what I have read say they do not have a long service life. We shall see. So far it is a good purchase. I gave it a low score on gaming as I don't game so I can't comment.
money well spent! I install the ssd to run my operating systems and games and set my old hdd as storage. My computer feels like new! Opens within 1 min with animated wall papers and everything. Amazing!
