Will the Samsung EVO 860 SATA III SSD drive work in my system?

Hi there,

I'm looking for answers regarding the new Samsung 860 EVO 500 GB 2.5” SATA III SSD compatibility? Does anyone out there try to install this new internal hard drive to an old late 2011 MacBook Pro?

I assume I'll need an upgrade hard drive cable like the one who installed the 850 EVO but what else should I know to upgrade my laptop to an SSD internal drive?

Same story for me with MacBook Pro Late 2011, even the Apple genius’ worked on it for 2 hrs couldn’t figure it out.

von

I installed it with no problem. First I did a fresh Time Machine backup. I also formatted the ssd to mac os extended(journaled ) prior to switching out the drives in the MacBook Pro 2011. No wiring added, it just plugged in like on the old drive. Option,command,R at boot up. Then installed from time machine. Took about two hours to transfer all the files. Great speed difference .

Hey benny, after you format new HD, then I would choose backup from time machine. Does that install the operation system also and all my data at once?

The drive is no different from the older one as far as compatibility, SATA is a set standard Samsung can't really alter things.

The 860 EVO carries over the same functionality as the 850 EVO its a auto sense drive so it will play in SATA I (1.5 Gb/s), SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) & SATA III (6.0 Gb/s) systems which don't require a fixed SATA speed drive.

The real difference is the read/write performance is better with the newer drive.

Update (03/20/2018)

It would be wise to replace it.

The inside surface of the uppercase are not well finished so the cable tends to wear on the rough surface. Here's the IFIXIT guide you'll need to follow: MacBook Pro (13 Zoll, Ende 2011, Unibody) Festplattenkabel austauschen and I recommend using the 2012 version of the cable MacBook Pro 13" Unibody (Mid 2012) Hard Drive Cable as its a better cable.

Even still I would place electricians tape on the uppercase where the cable rests to help protect it. Lastly, don't over bend the bend points as you don't want to fatigued the foil conductors.

Thank you for the reply. I was also wondering if I will need to change the hard drive connector cable or my old late 2011 Macbook pro one will plug in the new SSD? I saw an upgrade one on this site and read few comments about changing it. However, after watching a dozen youtube videos, I haven't seen anyone change their.

@danj hey Dan! I’ve been reading your replies and answers in reference to installing a Samsung evo 860 ssd into a mbp. I have an early 2011 model and taking advantage of the thanksgiving sales to buy an ssd for my laptop. I wasn’t sure if I should go with the 500gb or 1 tb? Would you be able to shed more light on that for me? Thanks :]

von

Are you into a two seat coupe or more into an eight person Land Rover? Thats the same issue here with storage size.

How much stuff are you expecting to have on your system? Also the larger SSD's do have a faster write speed so consider that.

Do keep in mind You need to keep enough free space for the drive to breathe! My rule of thumb is a 128 GB or smaller needs 1/3 of the space left unused. A 256 to 512 GB 1/4 free, the larger 1 & 2 TB drives only need 1/8th free.

von

Thanks for your info here :) I’m going to buy a new cable for my MBP 13 too! :)

von

Oh okay, I only have photos from trips mostly that are taking a lot of space but I’ve since then bought an external hd to store it in there instead, the sales look affordable on Newegg so I might splurge on the Land Rover, thanks so much!!☺️

YOU MUST replace the HD SATA cable and you must use the newer 2012 cable: MacBook Pro 13" Unibody (Mid 2012) Hard Drive Cable.

You must apply a strip of electricians tape on the uppercase where the cable crosses over. And lastly don't fold the cable! You want a nice arc not a sharp bend. The thin foil wires can be damaged.

It's not the SSD's fault! The Samsung 850 and 860 EVO drives are great! The issue is the HD SATA cable! And only use the SSD in the HD bay.

Hello,

I just tried to install an EVO 860 250GB out of the box on my beginning 2011 MacBook Pro 8,2 A1304 i7 8GB RAM unsuccessfully. The installation process stops at first reboot before language selection with the typical error message that cannot be installed and reboot.

I don't plan changing the HDD cable (which by the way already comes with a plastic tape on it to protect it) by now but will see if any firmware updates or so help in the near future.

I just wanted to contribute with some information that may help others wasting much time on it.

Cheers!

Alberto, I can't see you having any problems here. This is a slam dunk!

I just did three systems today both 2011 13" models. As I've stated & restated over and over again: YOU MUST replace the HD SATA cable and you must use the newer 2012 cable: MacBook Pro 13" Unibody (Mid 2012) Hard Drive Cable.

You must apply a strip of electricians tape on the uppercase where the cable crosses over. And lastly don't fold the cable! You want a nice arc not a sharp bend. The thin foil wires can be damaged.

von

Dan, when you say to apply a strip of electrician's tape on the uppercase, do you mean apply it onto the SATA cable to hold it in place???

von

The tape is placed on the uppercase isolating the cable from the rough surface of the aluminum case.

FYI - I just finished installing three Samsung 860 EVO drives (500 GB & 2x1 TB) and after replacing the HD SATA cables in three different MacBook Pro's! All three booted up without any problems!

Hi!

I've got a mid 2012 13" Macbook Pro. I've bought a Samsung 860 Evo 600gb.

Initially I just installed the SSD in the HDD bay as you'd expect and attempted a clean install of High Sierra from USB.

The install was excruciatingly slow taking 9 hours. I next attempted to connect the SSD by the USB adapter. The OS installed quickly. I put the SSD back into the internal bay and everything slowed right down; booting took an eternity then clicking anything when it'd booted caused it to lag.

I did think that the SATA cable could have somehow damaged itself in the process but the original drive, back in the Macbook performs normally.

Any solution for this problem?

Yes, do the SATA Cable.

Your system likely has the older cable, SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) spec'd. You need the newer version SATA III (6.0 Gb/s) spec'd. Or the cable is worn just enough to struggle with the higher data rate of the SSD.

Thats why it works with the HDD and not with the SSD.

von

Hi Dan,

How to know if my system uses older cable (SATA II) or new cable (SATA III)?

Thanks

von

All 2011 models which still have their original HDD's need the newer cable.

But, beyond that the condition of the cable can be effected by grit and the rough case wearing it as well as someone over doing the bends! Sharp folds instead of the needed smooth arcs.

Frankly, I just replace it when I put in a SSD drive, and I use a BIC pen ink straw (empty) to help me form the bend radius's. My customers are always happy!

Question here -- so the cable replacement should be performed only if you have issues, not in general, right? I am about to replace the SSD I put into an early 2011 MBP with a new SSD. The old one works great still, no issues, so I assume it won't be any different with the new one.

Update (09/11/2018)

Just a few days ago I replaced the HDD in an early 2011 MBP with a Samsung EVO 860 SSD, and it works flawlessly. I also didn't have to replace the HDD cable as is stated elsewhere here (I suppose it only needs to be replaced if it's faulty). I used Carbon Copy Cloner (free trial) for cloning the old boot HDD onto the new SSD from a live system. Super easy.

@jstanger - Sorry I didn't see you post. As a course of habit I always replace the cable when I put in a new SSD. Often times the cable is either the older version which won't work very well and/or the cable is worn.

von

You can apply this as a basic tech rule of thumb: Any time you get repeated I/O failure in a system where a cable is involved, *blame the cable first*. Whether the cable is internal (like an HD data ribbon cable) or external (USB, power, Ethernet, video, Thunderbolt etc.), the cable is the weakest component in the pathway and the cheapest/easiest to replace.

von

@Jan which Ssd drive did you use? I"m about to put in a Samsung Evo 860 III 2.5 and don't want to buy the cable.

von

Sorry guy your system has a SATA III (6.0 Gb/s) port but the original cable only supported SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) which is what the original HDD was. Once you put in a faster I/O'd drive you'll encounter problems! The bottom line here is you need to replace it. If you had an older SATA II system then you wouldn't need to replace the cable as the SSD would limit its self to SATA II.

Toshiba Slim II (1TB External) is having issues & I’m attempting to replace it with an EVO 860 without any success. Seems Samsung Magician is not comparable with Mac OS (or, so I’ve now recently read.) Is this issue correct or am I missing something? I thought all the new EVO SSDs would work without problems an a Mac.

My Mid 2011 iMac (21.5”) works great with an old Samsung SSD. What am I missing…?

You don't need Samsung Magician to setup your drive. Yes, Samsung Magician requires a Linux boot to run. It will allow you to tune the drive if needed, on the most part I find the defaults are just fine.

You do need to prep the drive to make it work. Follow this guide: How to create a bootable macOS Sierra installer drive As a course of habit I replace the HD SATA cable when I put in a SSD drive as often times the cable is the older version which won't support the higher data rate of the SSD and/or its worn.

And Yes! The 2.5" Samsung drive will be just fine in your MacBook Pro!

Hi,

Reading about successful replacements of HDs in an MacBook Pro’s (2011 or 2012),

I wonder if a Samsung SSD EVO 860 1TB would work fine in a MacBook Pro mid 2010?

I had already replaced the original HD with a Samsung EVO 840 500GB a few years ago; that went smoothly. But now running against storage limits, whilst the system still performing nicely, I’m considering an upgrade to 1TB.

Probably need to replace the SATA cable? Any experience out there?

No problems with your system, your system is only a SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) and you should be fine with the current HD SATA cable. Just don't crease it. You will want to place a piece of electricians tape un the uppercase where the cable rests to help isolate it from the rough aluminum case

von

I currently have a Samsung EVO 840 Pro 512 GB in my Macbook Pro 2012. I swapped it to a Samsung EVO 860 1T B and it's running very slowly. Works fine when I swap it back to my old 840 though... I dont think it's the SATA cable since I've already replaced it before.

von

Yep its the cable! the 840 EVO drive is much slower than the newer 850 or newer SSD. Just like when you drive your car on a winding cliff side road rounding the chicane curves you need to manage your speed! Going to fast and your airborne! As long as you mind your speed you're OK. Well the SSD's is not that smart its running at full speed!

Both the 2011 & 2012 models have the newer SATA port chip which can support SATA III drives But you need to replace the cable to the correct one! The original cable was not rated for SATA III it was only able to support SATA II drives.

Hi,

been having an issue with my MBP 13” mid2010 since the hdd died on me. I put an Evo 840 256gb SSD inside it and it worked perfectly for over a year until recently when it decided not to boot anymore. I could read the 840 externally from an adapter just fine, but i formatted it and put it back into the MBP to make a clean install and still wasn't recognisable by the MBP (tried with orig OS X 10.6 dvd).

I now bought an Evo 860 (with fingers crossed) but again, no luck here. Start up + Option key gets me to a tray of Install DVD, then Apple Icon and the spinning wheel..

If, if, the suggestion with changing sata-cable comes up, exactly what cable should fit?

Or the dvd might be faulty?

Thanks!

Just look above at Dean Bishop's problem. He had the same issue and how after replacing the HD SATA cable the problems went away! Make sure you are using the newer version as the older cable only runs SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) whereas your system can support SATA III (6.0 Gb/s) Use the 2012 model's cable.

Dan how Come we need to replace this cable?

Is it literally that crucial to change the cable? Does it just by having the new cable replaced allow for the laptop to then fully turn on and load like normal?

I guess my objective is to figure out the reason behind changing to that new cable. See my MacBook was erased by me via find my iPhone app remotely, and it did erase everything from the computer. I then press the button to power it on like normal after doing this, and after Remotely erasing it from my iPhone every time I power it on and it went to white screen with a circle and a slash through it.

I did some research and diagnosed it being a shot out SDD. So I have now replaced my solid test drive with a Samsung 860 evo 1TB

First using your iPhone you are leveraging the iCloud erase function so if your system is stolen you can protect your data! That has nothing to do with the SATA cable

So if you got your system back (which is good!) you now have a locked out system besides the erased drive. You first need to iCloud unlock your system via your iCloud account via your iPhone. Once done you can then address your erased drive. Using a bootable OS installer, re-install your OS you should be good without altering any hardware.

If you decide you are replacing the old HDD for a new SSD then YES! you need a new SATA cable as the original cable Apple shipped with the system was never rated to run at the higher SATA speed.

Now on start up , thankfully does not

Show and stop on white screen with circle and/do it, now it starts up and goes to white screen with folder and? In the middle of it??

Now what!?!? Dan

Luciano, please take the time to read through the upper entries where I talk about a Jeep and a Porsche. This is why you need to replace the cable.

I'm suspecting you may have damaged the cable here as you don't want to stress the cable around the bends. People tend to think they can crease the cable sharply, this is a big no-no! You want a nice smooth arc, No sharp bends! The reason is the conductors into the ribbon are foil and when you bend the cable sharply you fatigue the wires. As an example if you bend a paper clip half way and bend it back it's not as strong and will often snap, this is metal fatigue!

Please replace the cable with the newer version (2012 cable) place a piece of electricians tape on the uppercase where the cable crosses to help protect it from the case and don't over do the bending!

I have the same system (Macbook Pro early 2011) and I replaced the original HD with the EVO 860 SSD 500GB.

I did replace the cable (heard all of the stories before) and I had no problems making the switch.

However, I recently checked the system information and it says that while the SATA port is 6.0 Gb/s, but the negotiated speed is 1.5Gb/s! Since the port and the SSD are rated for 6.0 Gb/s, should I assume that the cable is faulty?

I did purchase the newer 2012 cable but not from iFixit. Also, I did not know about putting the tape on the inside of the case until I found this post.

Assuming the cable is my issue, I'll do that when I replace it. Is there another possibility for the negotiated speed being lower?

What is your MacOS version?

Also are you using the SSD in the HD bay or did you move it over to the optical drive bay? Keep in mind the optical bay has a known issue and can't support SATA III devices. What is happening is the drive drops down to compatibility mode - SATA I (1.5 Gb/s).

Hi.

My MacBook Pro Early 2011 systems report is showing 6 gigabits SATA connection.

I'm not the first owner and not sure if previously it had SSD inside.

When I bought the owner informed it had SSD inside with important info, so he had to replace it with HD.

Can’t trust him. Have attached system report. Can you tell if it does have SATA III cable by system report? Also there was aluminum foil on SATA drive inside, which I have removed.

Had no idea why he did put it there. But it seems clear now.

Apple never offered a SSD model when sold new.

The original HDD's Apple used where only SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) only the very last run of 2011 and the 2012 models got the faster SATA III (6.0 Gb/s) HDD as their supplier had stopped production of the older drive.

Looking at the System Report only tells you what the I/O channels speed is of the system (6.0 Gb/s)) and the dialog AHCI. The systems interface and the drive are both running at 6.0 Gb/s.

Then looking at the drive model info we can tell you have a Seagate (ST) 500 GB HDD which is a SATA III (6.0 Gb/s) drive

I have a 2010 15” MacBook Pro and it was a breeze swapping out the drive for an SSD and running Mac OS-X.

My 2010 13” MacBook Pro has been an ENTIRELY different story. I have taken this to geek squad for the SSD install and OS-X. They can’t get it to work apparently.

The drive is an SSD Samsung 860 Pro 512gb. I replaced the original cable with a cable of the same year. Then after reading this forum I purchased a 2012 drive cable for a 13” per Dans advice.

I took it to Best Buy for them to install. Apparently they’re still having problems (though I have never gone thru a more terrible service experience and general lack of care).

So what is the deal? Can my 2010 13” MacBook Pro handle an SSD upgrade? Is the Samsung 860 Pro SSD the problem? Is Geek squad the problem?

Please advise - been struggling with this and back and forth to geek squad for over a week with this.

Thanks,

@Richard DiNovo - The Samsung 860 EVO drive is what we call 'Auto Sense' it will match up with your systems SATA ports I/O speed. Not all drives are like this! you need to review the given drives spec sheet. In this case Samsung 860 EVO SSD we can see the 'Interface line lists all three SATA speeds! If you are looking at other SSD's that spec sheet needs to look the same otherwise its a 'Fixed Speed' which one runs at the one SATA speed, most are SATA III (6.0 Gb/s) only!

Now looking at your systems specs we can see the systems SATA port I/O is only SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) so you're good to go here with the orgianl cable and this SSD.

It sounds like you got the wrong cable and/or got damaged in the process.

I've installed quite a lot of the Samsung drives in all versions the unibody 13" & 15" MacBook Pro's from 2009 through to 2012.

In all cases the cable is the weak link! In the 2011 & 2012 models need the newer better cable if you are running a SATA III (6.0 Gb/s). You also need to be careful in how you bend the corners! Many people damage their cables by folding a sharp crease which damages it. You need to have a nice arc. I use a BIC pen ink straw (empty) to help form the radius. give this a try. In addition I place a strip of electricians tape on the uppercase to help protect the cable from wear.

If you get the NWC jumper, your SSD should function properly. After getting the jumper, I was continuing to get a fault code (which ended up being a normal occurrence since the jumper is not from Apple,) but all the same, the SSD was a great addition to my old 21.5" mid 2011 iMac... which is what I'm using for this note.. pc

This does not apply in a MacBook Pro!!

This jumper was intended when the 2010/11 21.5/27" iMac systems which has an Apple installed SSD drive. If you have replaced the HDD for a SSD then you need the OWC In-line sensor https://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/DIDI....

There is a difference! As the jumper needs to be placed on the HD power port when the spare port is used for the SSD. Here we are re-using the HD SATA cable for the SSD which is why you need the In-Line thermal sensor.
