Yeah , i know your the one who disagree's about the 10 year warranty thing after reading your comments about it in past pages .

I personally feel you are in an extremely low minority on this though. Most are not going to be using the same SSD 10 years into the future with the way tech advances , lets be honest. You probably will, i get you there.

Any SSD that has a 3 to 5 year warranty to me proves the company stands behind their product , that is the typical time range when people tend to upgrade since tech has greatly improved in that time span.

I respect your opinion though and have appreciated your help in the past.

Well for me the selling point was the speed as the tech changes so fast I don't go looking for longevity so much as price / speed / reliability.

Oh by the way the new lappy is just the bees knees except for some slight keyboard changes I am having to get used to.
You are running the MS AHCI drivers for the SSD. Try the Intel RST drivers, they perform better, in particular for the 4k writes.

For my posted scores, I also have write buffer flushing disabled and am using write behind mode. Otherwise my 4k writes would be around 120 MB/s.

The 850 Pro, however, will last you until you get tired of it........it has a ridiculous life cycle because of the type of Nand they use in it. Also, the other Samsung drive, the 840 Evo......are you running the Microsoft SATA controller on it as well? You can tell when you open it in AS SSD as it says "msahci" in the top left-hand corner of the program.

I wouldn't buy that drive because you think it's going last longer , pretty much any top notch drive you buy today will typically last far longer than you are likely to want to keep it .

The ten year warranty is just a sales gimmick , how many PC enthusiast do you think will stay with the same drive that long even if they could ?

I don't even know anyone who would stick with the same computer that long lol.
I didn't mean the warranty as much as the abuse you can put it through and not have much, if any, performance degradation. This drive is capable of handling terabytes upon terabytes of data written to it without missing a beat.....that means something to me. Also, you are thinking of a drive in one computer for several years........many of us build other machines and carry over drives because they are still great drives. I would have no issues re-purposing an SSD into say an HTPC, small NAS, etc after I've removed it from the original PC. I see several reasons to buy a drive like this, one of the most important is lifespan.

So, sure a 10 year warranty does mean something to many people, like me. Plus, I think it is refreshing to see a company actually stand behind it's products.
I have to agree there.. Even in the case of upgrading a machine to get new shiny parts or better performance or thanks to CUD, most people will still find a good use for the part being replaced. For example, if at some point I end up replacing my SSD, I'll probably put this one in my mom's laptop.

While a 10 year warranty is most definitely a good selling point, I think it's far more than just a sales gimmick.

Swapped out my 80GB Intel X25M for the new Samsung 840 Evo 120GB today. Ran a before and after. Note it's still SATA2, so not taking full advantage of the Samsung.

Bill, Congratulations, I think you will find the Evo quite an improvement. Very nice. The only thing I would suggest is running the Performance restoration firmware in case it does not have it and downloading the latest version of Samsung Magician Both can be found at Samsung SSD Downloads | Samsung SSD

Congratulations again, That will be a very good drive for you.
