Samsung SSD – Solid State Drives

Samsung SSD – Solid State Drives

Replacing your spinning disk hard drive with a Solid State Drive is the best performance boost you can give your PC or Mac.  In my opinion, Samsung SSD drives are the best choice. SSD prices have continued to drop making it an essential requirement for any new PC.

Desktop and Laptop Kit

Samsung makes a couple of kits that includes everything you need to replace a desktop or laptop drive.

The desktop kit contains a 2.5″ to 3.5″ mounting bracket, Hard Drive screws, SATA cable, and USB to SATA transfer cable. The laptop kit includes a rubber spacer that makes the drive the same thickness as most laptop 2.5″ drives, also included is a USB to SATA transfer cable

PRO vs EVO

The EVO series are considered Desktop class drives will the PRO series appears to be a bit more reliable with better performance in the lower capacity drives. The EVO series supports a feature called Rapid Mode which in my opinion makes they drive an even better performer. Rapid Mode is enabled using the SamSung Magician software which I recommend installing.

Cloning your old Hard Drive

Samsung makes a tool here that you can use to transfer your data from your old drive to the new one. I personally use Easus TODO backup’s clone feature to accomplish the transfer.
