- Hard Drive: 250 GB
So. Normally I don't write too many reviews but felt this one is worthy. First I am a IT tech with 20 years of corporate experience. All you really know is it's crazy fast. Is the Samsung 850 faster? Yes, however, you will never notice the difference unless you have two identical computers running next to one another and running benchmarks. My computer i7 3rd generation with 16GB RAM 2TB barracuda hard drive. 4 years ago it was fast. However, even after fresh installs still takes too long too boot and just do anything. Popped in the WD drive SSD and I basically have enough time to turn my head for a split second before it boots. Less than 3 seconds.Took an image of the drive and finished in 2 min and 33 seconds.
Absolutely no problems! After downloading the clone software, I plugged the SSD into second SATA and power cable and it took about 30 minutes to clone my 500 GB hard drive. No SATA-USB cable needed. My company bought me a Samsung EVO 850 SSD which DID require a SATA-USB cable to clone. It took over 6 hours to clone my 500GB hard disk.
Perfect solution to replace the small 256Gb SSD in my new Dell Inspiron PC. I works great so far and I love it. Great quality and easy install.
