I installed this in my wife’s MacBook Pro (mid 2012; non-retina; MacBookPro 9,2) and the installation process could not be more of a breeze. Once the new drive was in, I did a fresh install of OS X 10.10 from USB stick. Then restored user accounts, apps, etc, from the HD just removed from the Mac, attached with this cable: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HJZJI84/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (rather than using time machine backup). Since I was already opening the computer, I also upgraded the memory to 8 GB using this ‘kit:’ http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005LDLVAO/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Once the OS was installed and all data transferred, the difference in boot time, application launch time, and overall performance was nothing short of dramatic. MS Word now opens instantaneously. Night and day. I’m sure extra memory is not hurting, either, with things like running multiple apps at the same time and application switching. After the upgrade, it feels like a brand new computer. I was originally waiting to upgrade the 500 GB hard drive that come with the Mac once prices of SSD drop enough to make a 1TB a bit more economical, but I’m really glad I did not wait. The expected longevity/endurance of Samsung’s “3D” technology along with the price point of just just over $200 (with tax) were the 2 key deciding factors (expected performacne gains being a given). Could not be happier. Will be interesting to see if there is any noticeable improvement in battery life and how the drive performs after a year or so (given TRIM is not permitted by Apple on third-party SSDs). BTW – the drive itself looks really good. I realize the case is superfluous and rather irrelevant in an internal SSD (it will never be seen again after re-inserting the back cover), but once installed amid the tidy MacBook innards, the drive looks perfectly at home, actually matching the other components in terms of aesthetics. NOTE: once your drive is installed and configured in your Mac, restart holding option command r p to make your computer stop looking for the old boot drive and start up right away (google ‘option command r p’ for details). From pressing the start button to fully loaded desktop, this PowerBook now takes just under 20 seconds.

Other reviewers pretty much said everything I wanted to say. The speed of this little guy is phenomenal. Once you make all the necessary tweaks with the included Samsung Magician software, your computer will breathe with new life.

Like some of you, I had an error when trying to boot from the SSD. I searched the web and there were many complaints that some systems will not recognize this device and suggest some far-out-there solutions whereas I found a simple, effective and without downloading anything.

Here’s my story:

I cloned my PC (2011 Dell XPS Desktop) using the Samsung Data Migration. Shutdown the PC, opened, swapped the cables from my tired old HDD and plugged them into the SSD. Turned my PC on, and got something like this:

File: BootBcd
Status: 0xc000000f
Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.

No matter what I did, I could not get my PC to boot. That is until I saw a Reddit article with a simple solution (I have Windows 7 HP 64Bit):

1. Click Start then in the filed type “Backup and restore”
2. On the left side click “Create System repair disc”

Insert a blank DVD and follow the on-screen instructions to create the disc. Once it is done, do not remove the disc from the drive.

Reboot your computer and go into the boot manager, usually F12 and select DVD Drive as the first bootable device instead of your SSD
Reboot again and a program will load from the DVD where you will select “Startup Repair”

Allow “startup repair” to fix the problem and reboot your PC. The PC will now boot from the SSD.

This program fixes the boot sector of the SSD that for some oddball reason is not read by some computers. From now on, your SSD will work perfectly.

I really hope this works for some of you who have this irritating problem. Now I want to show you some pictures of performance.

If you have any questions, please leave me a comment.

Thanks to a few Youtube reviews, I selected the 850 EVO (250) for my Macbook Pro (2013). For those who are on the fence, I would recommend running a read/write speed test using an app like blackmagic via the apple app store. My original rating was roughly 25MBs write and 50MBs read, with the standard 500GB HDD. I used a simple SATA adapter cloning kit for under $20 to connect the 2.5 SSD to my MAC via USB. Once you connect the drive, the system disk utility launches and you can rename and partition the SSD- easy. I used the Carbon Copy Cloner trial version cloning software after i partitioned the drive and transferred all data via cloning utility. The transfer took less than 15 minutes and verified successful transfer via disk utility. Once done, I powered off and removed the back case of the Macbook- removed the four screws that retained the HHD and slipped the SATA connector off. I connected the new SSD via the SATA connector and replaced all retaining screws (after removing the hex screws from the HHD, I placed them on the new SSD). Upon powering back up, there was a slight delay but once done- perfect. My speeds boosted to about 330MBs write and over 500MBs read (**disclaimer** this number will vary based on what you have running while conducting the test). No problems as of this post, apps launch much faster and you will be amazed at how quick the OS launches after you power up or log-in. Great purchase for great price, speedy delivery and with the use of simple cables- you will be happy Im sure. Leave me a msg if you have a question.
