Bought the Samsung Evo 860 on Black Friday for £62. Finally got time to install it today in my 2009 MacBook Pro. So happy it’s super fast now. Startup time went from 1min 14 secs to 20 secs.

These are great drives, currently in my PC and remember they come with a 5 year warranty too, heat added.
Same price I paid for my 250GB version mid 2015.

Thanks pal. I was really worried I was gonna mess it up. But I can’t believe how easy it actually was. Need to get some ram now.
Should then do this, to Lee the old 500GB as a second drive (time machine?). I’ve done this on my 2011 model.

Anyone know if this would be a suitable replacement for a PS4 hdd?

You want a SSHD for a PS4, unless you're happy with only 500GB of storage from a SSD.
Shame its not an easy swap for a Lenovo yoga laptop. 8gb ram and 1tb hdd but its awfully slow to start
Did amazon had the similar price price on black friday deals
Now at £73.40

Anyone know if this would be a suitable replacement for a PS4 hdd?


It is suitable as in it's compatible, but you won't be using the full speed of the drive (restricted by the PS4's outdated SATA interface), and I'd recommend a larger drive: SSHD, as previously mentioned, if value is a factor.
I put a 1.05TB Crucial MX300 SSD in my PS4 Pro, with the original 1TB drive in a USB enclosure, and it's a right faff having to move games over. A 2TB Seagate Firecuda would probably have been the sensible option, at less than half the price.

That said, an SSD is noticeably faster, and I really enjoy how short the load times are in Red Dead 2
Why these Evo SSDs are so much more expensive than an equivalent sized SSD from other brands such as Sandisk or WD?
e.g. 500GB ssds were c. £50 at some point on black friday week, both Sandisk or WD.

I know what you mean. I had a job in the other day and I wanted to upgrade the HDD to SSD but some manufacturers make it way more difficult than it needs to be. It was HP and it needed hinges removing and keyboards being prized off lol.

God bless Dell though

Why are Ferraris so much more expensive than Fords. They're both cars with 4 wheels and engines, right?
Cloned my C drive onto one of these last night with Macrium Reflect.

Went OK ish but now the SSD only shows as the C drive of 50Gb.

What's a good soft to get the full drive showing?

Don't need to download any software to do that.

Go to disk management, select the ssd, then right click and go to extend drive. Then a window will pop up explaining how much can be extended. Just click ok and save.

None sarcastic answer is that Samsung make the most reliable ssds going. That's why I pay more for them. I know they will work and not go kaput after 6 months like other inferior vendors like Kingston do.
Is this better than the crucial mx500?

Yes. I did same thing few days ago when I put a 2tb drive in. Takes 10 seconds to do. All it does is tell windows that the cloned drive has more space than the old one.

Edit: I think your referring to windows correctly using the new ssd instead of old slow hdd right? I think there should have been an option on macrium when you cloned that said optimise for ssd I believe. Either way ssds support trim support so they should be fine. If your worried do a disk speed benchmark.

Tests prove the 860 is slighlty faster but the difference would be fractional & almost unnoticeable. Personally I'd save yourself £13
