    Nope Gary it will be fine, but on my computer just before I hit the sack, I turn both my computers off, and let them rest too.
    I see no reason to leave them on 24/7 but lots of folks do.

    Oh yeah on those Intels, yup they are most likely the most expensive ones to buy, but I also think their one of the few with a 5 year warranty too. Samsung is 3 years. and Samsung support can be not user friendly sometimes.

    I put a Samsung 850Pro in a laptop and the system now runs a good bit cooler than it did when the HDD was installed.

    I got two Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB for $170 each about two months ago. One run on a Dell XPS 8700 and the second on a Dell XPS 420. Works great. This is the best investment you can make to improve your performance! SSD rocks!

    Anyone else use these ?

    Cheers,
    I bought a Mushkin about 4-5 years ago and used it for the OS on what then was my newest build based around a X58 motherboard. There were 3rd party SATA 6gbs (Marvell) that caused problems for a lot of people, but I used it on the native SATA ports (3gbs) Anyway, I had no problems using the Mushkin and it was probably one of the 1st ones they offered. Somewhere along the way I replaced it with two Samsung 830 Pros and started yanking the old WD Velos out. The stuff I'm running in my 2 laptops make my desktop look like an old man and it's past time ;for me to rebuild it but I don't use it as much as I used to due to health problems. There will be at least one m.2 PCIe drive in my new one whenever that market matures a bit and I go ahead and replace all of my 4-6 year old technology. The 850EVO I mentioned ended up going in my Yoga2Pro, no problems - I do have to send the laptop in for a fan issue ;they won't let me fix myself so I have to jerk all of the things I changed on it and put the original crap back in. PITA.

    Anyway, I used that Mushkin for several years and now it's in my wife's laptop that I gave her so it's probably close to 5 years old and still going. I've used their memory more than once and never had a problem with any of that. I did have a problem with a SSD enclosure that they put their brand on. I returned it and did not reorder - I had put the 850EVO mSATA in it to play around with it, it was fast as heck for a few minutes, would get hot and then slow wayyyy down.

    Soon I hope to replace all my hard drives with various sizes of the 850 Evo. So far I have the 850 Evo 240gb (OS) and 850 Evo 2tb (games).

    I installed it and it works great. My WEI went from 5.9 to 7.1 and it is fast. I tried to change it to ACHI but it would not Boot. I think maybe because my PC is 5 years old. Anyway it works fantastic. Boot time is like 20 seconds. Thanks for all of you guys help on this.
