What customers say about "Key Specs"
  • The difference in speed is incredible, really snappy performance and very useable again.
  • Superb piece of kit - used this to convert a customers slow and old HDD to new and quick SSD on a macbook pro.
  • The 256Gb version and higher have the better write 560/520mbps speeds compared to the lower Gb ADATA SSD's which drop down to 560/300mbps. And you can notice the difference.
  • Work well. Faster than many in speed tests
  • Very happy with the speed and the price is excellent. Will buy again.
Samsung 860 EVO 250GB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD
  • Took about 30 minutes to make the switch and be up and running. It's faster than I anticipated and am very pleased with this purchase.
  • Slim design and easy install. Setup in disk management on windows is a snap...highly recommended.
  • Installation was a snap and coupled with enhanced RAM this new SSD cut boot time tpo a fourth of what it had been.
  • I think Samsung SSDs are one of those having the greatest compatibility to various systems and quality and durability.
  • This is quite a boost in startup time in Windows 10. Took a quiet a few restarts to train it seems like but now it starts up so fast.
  • Only issue would be the price but if you get this on sale, then it is a great deal.
  • No instructions, no cables, doesn't even tell you what cable you need. PC will not recognize it.

What customers say about "Features"
  • It features intelligent SLC caching and a DRAM cache buffer to boost read/write up to 560 MB/s and 520 MB/s.
  • It took about an hour to clone my original hard drive (bought a USB to SATA cable at the same time); and it was a very easy and quick (10 mins max) to swap the drives.
  • In terms of backing up your data, ADATA provides a tool to clone your old drive onto the new one.
  • Fitting is dead easy but will obviously depend on your laptop / desktop. It was easy in mine, got the bottom cover off, few screws and the disk tray was out.
  • This drive has been fitted to 2 laptops and seen 3 operating systems with no issues (I like to test my kit!).
Samsung 860 EVO 250GB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD
  • This thing is great! I used the Samsung software and cloned my old drive and then boom, like a whole new computer!! Startup takes seconds instead of 15 minutes like it used to!
  • Laptop boots up in 8 seconds.. all programs and downloads have increased approx 80 % !! amazing.
  • Bought this for gaming, and programs start about 30% faster with no stuttering during gameplay. The 1 TB is a must to start, but might add another SSD in the future.
  • Data access is liekwise much faster, programs boot up much more quickly and it's almost like a new laptop rather than over 6 years old.
  • My Mac used to take around 3 minutes to boot. Now with the SSD, I clocked the boot time at 25-28 seconds, the desktop, applications appear immediately.
  • These drivers are to terrible. Samsung's own magician software doesn't even recognize either drive.
