This drive is probably the best SSD for the money at this time.
The only disappointment I had was of course. no support for
the Magician Software for linux, just Microsoft. I still have an
old copy of XP Pro on one drive, and of course Microsoft is
doing all they can to push consumers to go with Windows
7,8, or 10 by making XP deactivate and refuse to reactivate
over the internet.
The magician software didn't run well at all on my XP Pro,
couldn't get to anything but the performance. I mean, does
this have to be your OS drive to use Magician ? I'll read further, and
boot to my Windows 10 on another drive and see if I have any better luck.
And no, the deactivation was not caused by the install of the SSD. I've made
plenty of changes on my wife's XP Pro, and on my own machine, and that's
only started happening lately.
Good job Samsung, all around. I'll try to upgrade to the Pro next round.
