Why should I buy a solid state drive?
SSD drives are faster, more reliable and a lot more efficient than standard hard drives (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 performance can I expect from this drive?
This solid state drive has a capacity of 512GB, which is enough to be able to run your operating system as well as storing your documents on your laptop or notebook with enough room for your pictures and music. With a read speed of 550MB/s and a write speed of 520MB/s, this allows you to start your computer up quicker as well as being able to scan and search for files rapidly. 512GB will give you enough storage for approximately 500 hours of digital video, 120 two-hour DVD films, 16,000 digital photos or 8,000 hours of digital music.

How efficient is this SSD?
Thanks to its solid state design, the Samsung SSD consumes less power and produces less heat than a traditional HDD. This lightens the load on your PC's power supply and cooling system, lengthening your system's lifespan.

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 2 out of 5 by from software not compatible with windows 10 software not compatible with windows 10 I'm told Samsung are working on it , they need to get a move on. Samsung Magician software needs updating to get published performances.

Hi, is this product compatible with Macbook Pro, 13 inch, Mid 2012 model, 2.5GHz Intel Core i5?

Asked by: Dawn
You need to check compatibility for your device with Apple. You main consideration will be physical drive height This unit measures : Dimensions : 68.6 mm x 100.6 mm x 7 mm So total height 7mm as long as your device is compatible and has a drive bay that will accommodate a 7mm drive you should be OK.
