      Answer

      Hopefully I'm not too late to help you out, but the main difference between the two drives is speed. The Pro is faster than the Evo, although the speed difference may not be substantial enough for you to justify buying it yourself. Unless you are a serious gamer or running programs where every mb counts then I wouldn't say you would need the Pro.

        lol, I think you will be safe with what you have, a 850 Pro 1TB SSD is a 850 Pro 1TB SSD, if its secure in your system, its secure and will run like a 850 Pro 1TB SSD....

      Angelbird   (1 Answer)

      Can I install 2 of these on my macbook pro mid 2010 using a data doubler & am replacing my battery at the same time. So will it be an issue with the battery? And also someone told me Angelbird is a better compared to Samsung on the long run. Can someone confirm on this?

        The Angelbird is more for your mac and aligned better for it. As far as being a better drive I couldn't really say, I use Samsung myself but NOT in a mac, I use them in my desktop windows OS PC that I build. The Pro SSD from either maker are higher in cost but I have found for me it is worth the extra for the performance I gain when video editing and compiling programs when writing programs/software. Best to do a search on the drive you want to get all the info you need.... Daniel

        As long as it takes the Sata III hookup it should work fine and if you can secure it. I have a friend who uses the SSD in his xboxOne and it works great. Daniel

      Compatabilty   (1 Answer)

      I have a 4 month old HP Envy 17 touchscreen. Is the Samsung - 850 PRO 1TB Internal Serial ATA III Solid State Drive completely compatible? Also, I saw that it comes with cloning software, but I've read some articles about issues with cloning HP software and Windows 8. Am I better off letting the Geek Squad do the conversion?

        If you can secure it into you PC it should work just great, also I have used the cloning software 3 times and it has always worked great. Just remember after cloning on first bootup to hit Del key or F1 key or what ever key you use to get into BIOS/cmos and in your boot menu make sure the new SSD is in the slot for first boot or 2nd after CD-ROM/DVD boot! Or after you install the drive and boot, you will get message you have a problem with your drive because your system is looking for a different drive to boot to, easy enough and if you only use one drive in your system then you probably wont have to worry about it ( I have 4 drives in my system ).

      Compatibility Question?   (1 Answer)

      Hi, I am looking to buy the "Samsung - 850 PRO 1TB Internal Serial ATA III Solid State Drive" for a new laptop I am getting. I am just wondering if it will be compatible with the "ASUS GL551 JW"? I am fairly certain that you can't remove the extra 128gb ssd that comes with this model, however, I am hoping that it is possible to remove the 1TB HDD and replace it with the "Samsung - 850 PRO 1TB Internal Serial ATA III Solid State Drive". Any clarification would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

        You have to find out if the old drive is SATA SSD. Look at Youtube and google your computer for forums that discuss it. Look at the prongs and size of the old drive. See if the 2.5" SATA SSD Samsung will connect the same way.
