I have now installed the new SSD into my desktop pc. I cloned my original HDD rather than installing W10 from scratch mainly because I have a few programs I wanted to keep that came pre-installed with the pc, but I have no software for these, so a clean install would have meant losing them.
I removed and backed up all my photo's, video's and music before doing this, so basically I just cloned the operating system to the new SSD. That part went very well taking just under 30mins.
Now the part that hasn't gone as planned is the increase in operating speed. I have set the SSD to maximum performance in the Magician software supplied by Samsung and enabled RAPID mode. I've tried different settings from the Samsung software, and anything I've thought worth a try from searching the Internet. The best I can get is knocking 5 seconds off the start-up time, and slightly quicker shut down time, programs like Adobe photoshop open in slightly shorter time, and I can run a scan (IE like Malwarebytes) without any loss in speed whilst browsing the net which I couldn't using the original HDD. Apart from those relatively small changes that is it.
So rather a disappointing experiment so far, unless I'm at fault by missing something
Any advise chaps would be appreciated
