Samsung 850 EVO M.2 SSD Review


Written review:
Today Andrew finally gets to talk to you about Samsung’s 850 EVO that launched today! Their new M.2 (and mSATA) drives are pretty awesome, although they are still handicapped by that sata bottleneck, as the drive is an M.2 Sata drive. But still, none the less, having a surface mount 250GB ssd on your board as a boot drive or cache is insanely cool!

  1. wow I have the standard SATA version & im getting reads around 530MB/s & writes of about 493MB/s and im on an older AM3+ 970 motherboard so to me this looks like the m.2 version is slower

  2. PLEASE HELP IM GOING CRAZY & NOBODY ON GOOGLE CAN HELP ME. I have the – Aspire E 15 E5-575-33BM 15.6-Inch Full HD Notebook (Intel Core i3-7100U Processor 7th Generation , 4GB DDR4, 1TB 5400RPM Hard Drive, Intel HD Graphics 620, Windows 10 Home) Which DEFINATELY accepts M.2 ssd or 2.5 ssd so PLEASE save yourself the time of saying your not sure my PC can even use m.2 because I Promise you it can & does (Thanks you & I only mention that because 75 other people trying to help kept saying it doesn't accept m.2 ! YES it does ! LOL)  my problem is I installed the drive I used Samsung magician for the cloning process everything appears  to have went well until I start the computer ! I cant get it to run windows or anything ! I went in Bios switched boot order moving SSD to top and HDD #2 and it still boots off the HDD !!!!  I went in disk management and it shows the new SSD as (G)Drive & the HDD as (C) Drive  no matter what I do ! can someone ,anyone PLEASE help me & walk me through this in TODDLER language  ,I'm really irritated its been 4 days & I still haven't had a chance to see the speed & power of new SSD…THANNK YOU ALL VERY MUCH


  3. According to the AS SSD screen in your video, it seems the speeds are actually in megabytes per second, not megabits, as would normally be indicated by the MB/s (as opposed to Mb/s) So great review, and unless I am wrong, even better speeds than first thought. Also just like to point out, ordinarily there would be a riser installed in the motherboard to ensure the drive is installed parallel to the board. A sloping installation will put extra strain on the socket and the drive, though probably not enough to be concerned about.

  4. I want to know, would it be possible put it in an asus gl552vx-cn067t?. In the page main of asus say can it have up to 256gb . that is unnecessary for me I want to have my ssd m. 2 with 500gb , can I?

  5. How do I copy an existing Dell XPS 8900 Win 7 pro HDD C drive to this one INCLUDING recovery partitions to replace the HDD as the C drive? The Samsung software won't do this it seems…

  6. i am installing it in asus gl552vx laptop but i need that retaining screw.can you help me out what is that screw ? is it m2X3mm screw or something other,.

  7. They are all low profile except those which are vertical. Without screw from the bottom there is a risk of failure, but ventilation is deteriorating.

  8. I've got the Asus GL552VW gaming laptop, good machine and the specs are good enough for the games I play.
    I'ts only a couple months old but I have some small problems with turning the pc off and with closing and opening the lit.
    This laptop got an extra slot to build in a m2 ssd, would you recommend me doing that? I would put my windows and maybe some games on it.

  9. Usually, with the MBs comes a small riser that you screw in the screw holder and then you use the screw on top of the riser. In that way there is space below the M.2 driver. The driver should not touch the surface underneath.

    For example you can see the riser on this PCIe card, but it's just the same thing on the MB.

  10. megabits per second is it ? 🙂 I have an old 486 from 1995 with a 20MB hard drive that can beat the pants off of that speed 🙂

  11. I have an ssd like that but I don't have that port and windows is on it so I don't know how I'm gonna get windows on my new build

  12. my mobo(MSI H97M G43) has the following specification—- M.2 Slot: 1 x 2280 Key M(PCIe Gen2 x2/SATA)
    is my mobo supported?
