SSD Upgrade to Samsung Evo 500

Recently upgraded my 2-3 year old Corsair Force 3 240Gb SSD [$199 then] to the Samsung Evo 500Gb [formatted you get 466Gb]. 224Gb is roughly what you get when you format a 240Gb SSD and l have been running out of temp scratch and users folder space on my Operating system Drive C currently running Windows 10.

The main difference l found between the Samsung evo and Evo pro is 5 vs 10 years warranty and the guaranteed number of reads. The Evo 500 was on sale for $156 – l had a local Frys store match the current price on Amazon.com

Below are benchmark test results. Speed up is roughly 3x and the Samsung is almost about 1/2 as thick as the Crucial was.
