Product overview

• 250GB internal solid state drive (SSD) giving you a large storage capacity for your computer
• mSATA connection with a read/write speed of 520MB/sec for a space saving design and super quick data transfer
• 97,000 input/output per second (IOPS)
• Perfect for replacing the hard drive in your netbook or Apple MacBook Air

Why should I buy a solid state drive?
SSD drives are faster, more reliable and a lot more efficient than a standard hard drive (HDD). Durability and reliability are two things you can expect from an SSD. They are able to withstand knocks and shocks, making them ideal to use in laptops and netbooks. This doesn’t mean you can’t use them in computers - they provide a quick start up speed and a silent operation as well as being easy to install into your case.

What benefits does this SSD have?
This Samsung 850 EVO comes as a 250GB drive. This capacity is sufficient enough to run any operating system as well as storing your pictures and documents on your computer. The 520MB/sec read/write speed allows you to save data faster and recall it when you are in a hurry.

The connection seems smaller than my normal one, can I still use this in a desktop computer?
Although this SSD has a mini-SATA (mSATA) connection it doesn’t stop you from using it in a normal desktop computer or even in a laptop with a standard SATA connection. You will require an mSATA to SATA converter.

How will a V-NAND drive help me?
V-NAND technology is a step above other SSDs. Instead of making the cells smaller to squeeze more in, it stacks them on top of each other. Silicon nitride layers also aid in preventing corruption caused by cell to cell interference, providing up to twice the average life span of other SSDs.
V-NAND technology not only lasts longer, but it uses up to 45% less power and delivers writing speeds of up to two times faster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My old laptop now flies I have installed a EVO 850 MSATA into my old HP EliteBook 2540P Easy fit no problems - remember to use AHCI or the SSD will not run as it should Now to the peformance. My machine under windows 7 booted up in about 2 mins - now in windows 10 and the 850 its about 15 sec - half of that is the BIOS screen! Also remember to install Samsung Magician it sets up your PC so it flys I have no problem recommending this product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Samsung EVO mSATA 250Gb The "User Manual" that came with the the EVO mSATA 850 is a joke. No installation advice whatsoever, just guarantee in umpteen languages.The Samsung SSD website gives no installation advice at all. Truly dreadful support. I suppose I'll have to pay a third-party to install it.

Does this mSata drive come with software to transfer operating system to it?

Asked by: bjmoseley
It does not, typically when fitting a SSD it is best to do a fresh install of your operating system. This will take advantage of the extra features and benefits that the SSD drive offers.
