    Hmmm, after a day with RAPID off, I've noticed my desktop to be faster and more responsive than with it on!!?? Boot time has dropped a couple of seconds(to be expected), and my system image backup with Macrium actually dropped 30 seconds to 3:15 minutes from 3:45(unexpected). yes I know the writes on the 2nd internal HDD are not influenced, but the reads on the SSD are. After turning RAPID off, I made sure PreFetch/SuperFetch was back on and because of the upgrade soon I also turned Write cache buffer flushing back on, even though I have a back-up power supply(just until the upgrade is through). In another words, I've set my system back to safe stable reliability and not benchmarks/performance, and it is running better than before.

    With Windows 10 and Samsung magician version 4.6, I was unable to invoke rapid mode on my 850 Pro. However, uninstalling 4.6 and installing 4.4 worked like a charm. Not only did 4.4 (unlike the indication in some earlier posts) see both my 850 Pro and 840 Evo, but I was able to invoke rapid on the 850 Pro. I was never too sure about the real-world benefits of rapid, however the difference was clearly noticeable. For whatever that is worth.

    In real world performance (daily usage) Rapid Mode has little to no performance gains except for write speeds which don't really matter since on SSD's you're trying to limit as much writes to the drive as possible.

    Yeah it's just a gimmick IMO I used it for a little while when I first purchased my SSD's but quickly noticed no difference with it on other than benchmarks.

    Check out a later review of the 850 Pro and the impact of rapid from the same quoted source. Fairly different story.Samsung's 850 Pro solid-state drive reviewed - The Tech Report - Page 1

    Don't know which review your talking about but I can only speak for my experience with 840 EVO's and 16GB RAM.

    Ive been using it quite a while and besides that i causes VARIOUS problems with some games (blackscreen after starting a game , or flipping you back to the desktop and repeteadly doing so if you want to task back into the game)
    it also was the cause for the windows 8.1 ---> windows 10 upgrade process to fail (you had to find that our by yourself by trial and error). The software is mainly junk honestly. And the benchmark results for rapid mode are super artificial.
    In everyday use i have no difference whatever in performance without drive magician. (840 EVO , 16 gb ram)

    Either way it's still a benchmark, only way to know for sure is in "Real" world usage and not something that an application does.

    Different strokes/perceptions for different folks. In Windows 10, after enabling rapid on my 850 Pro I found a noticeable difference in responsiveness. This could be wishful thinking, but enabling and disabling this feature reinforced this difference for me. The attached URL in my prior post is a substantial reversal by techreport.com on the earlier quoted article where they found minimal differences when rapid was enabled/disabled. It is possible that the shift from using 1 GB of RAM (by rapid when the first article was written) and 4 GB of RAM from the second article was written could be responsible for the improved performance measures. Synthetic tests aside, rapid seems to work for me.
