Good buy...Best SSD...I went to Best Buy in Poughkeepsie and immediately sought out a Geek Squad Tech to pick his brain about SSD's because I know nothing, period, about computer hardware....So far 4 months in I like both but it really does seem the sandisk is a better deal as its within 95 to 99% of the samsungs performance in benchmarks and costs less, only question on the sandisk ssd would be long term reliability so I gave it a 4 star and this one 5 for that as samsung ssds have a slightly better reliability record.Upgrade a compatible computer with this Samsung 860 Evo series solid-state drive.
