Summary: I can't say buy or not to buy, contacted Samsung on the issue and see what happens from there. Well they sent me an email back wanting a ton of information about me and of course send it off to them to be looked at and have to pay for it to be fixed when they know this is a big issue with the EVO...
Pros: Loading Windows 10 took 30 seconds with password put in Loads games faster then an HDD
Cons: Freezes and lags after a couple of months freezes games all the time when not frozen up it will lag badly
Premium rated speeds and reliability stats on it with a very good price. I may only buy Samsung SSD in the future.

Summary: This drive has worked perfectly for my gaming system now for a year and a half, and I have highly recommended this drive to numerous other friends in my IT Department and some of them have had the same experience. It will be hard for me to ever buy another brand of SSD in the future.
Pros: Premium speed and reliability. My gaming PC Windows 7 boot time from power button through password login and to web browser at google home page was 30 seconds.
Cons: SSD prices are still high. Otherwise, no Cons from my side.
Summary: Next time I get a SSD, I will probably choose the 1TB option, why not, right? I also have been tinkering with linux (Mint and elementaryOS) and plan to dual boot. I don't actually know, this is just future ideas. I used the Samsung EVO 2.5 SSD at work (two actually) after using this one.
Pros: This is the first SSD I started using in my Lenovo laptop for booting. (I had one before for data caching). I love it. I no longer use the sleep or hibernate, because I can shutdown and boot-up in the same time frame. That alone on Windows is a big help. I choose mSATA SSD because I wanted to lea...
Cons: If I recall correctly, this mSATA didn't come with the mSATA screws. I am not sure what I figured out, but one or two screws would be nice.
Summary: Samsung has offered to replace this drive with a refurbished one. But they will NOT cross ship. meaning that I have to buy another HD to move Windows onto as my 2TB HD does not have enough room or go with out a computer.
Pros: When I first installed this SSD with Windows 7 X64 it would boot into Windows before the Windows logo squares even completed! I was very impressed. Now it is a bit slower which I contribute to all the Windows upgrades. However my UEFI/Bios takes longer than my SSD boot time.
Cons: The cons of this drive are that just about every other program I have installed on this drive do NOT function properly. I installed Office to it. Every time I opened an Office program it would run the "Preparing Office for First Use" screen. I uninstalled Office and put it on my regular HD, no is...
