Just purchased my 1st Solid state drive. Samsung EVO 850 , 500G. My 1TB Mechanical Drive died on me last week.
...all I can say about this drive is WOW IS IT FAST!! in game loading time went from appx 1-1.5+ min to about 13 seconds...I can now actually see the timer before the game starts... did you know they start at 20 seconds, I didn't !?
The drive it self, I purchased from BestBuy $149.00. Usually I'm usually a www.newegg.com buyer. but Best buy had it for the same price.
Currently have my OS (WIn 10) World of Warcraft and BF4 on it. even WOW loads amazingly fast.
so if your thinking about it, and can afford one, Get one. you will not regret it.
prices are coming down on them, and Capacity is going up.
