I hope you're talking about the 850 EVO.  If I were in your shoes, unless this laptop is a beater, testing unit, Linux box or specific use only, I would go bigger than 250GB especially if you're running W10.  In fact, I would even go non-Samsung just to get a bigger drive.  But that's just my opinion.

I'd sure hope not, the 850 Evo is SATA. The 960 Evo is NVMe, barely cost more, and is significantly better. Assuming his computer supports NVMe that is.

$110 says it's an 850 though.

I think it has already been established that his M.2 socket is the SATA variety.

Yes, the 850 evo 250gb.

OP should confirm m.2 PCIe compatibility with the exact model number, because as far as I can tell, his laptop actually has an m.2 PCIe (4x) slot (got that from a spec sheet on LDLC.fr)...

If so, go for an NVMe drive 😁

This is what to expect from an 850 EVO SATA with Samsung's RAPID mode enabled:


This is what to expect from a 960 EVO m.2 NVMe if you're stuck at PCIE 3 x 1 speeds:


It's really all about setting the drives up correctly to max speeds your system will allow.

Note: Pay attention when downloading CrystalDiskMark or you could wind up with the Shizuka Edition... eh-smiley.gif

No, it was established that he is currently using it as SATA. There is no such thing as a "sata M.2" on modern boards, just M.2, it's down to the motherboard and chipset to determine which protocol is used.

That is not representative of drive performance at all, it's representative of RAM/Cache performance which requires multiple runs to get set properly. Bump that 100MB to 4GB+.

I merely ran the test at those speeds because he did.
