    I have another MBP, a mid-2010, that has a Samsung 850 EVO 2.5" SATA III 2.5in SSD 500GB that's worked perfectly the past couple of years. What I'm wondering is if anybody has used the new 860 series of this drive successfully in a late-2011 MBP?

    Why? It's a standard SATA SSD, so it will of course work.

    I am having issues with my MacPro not being able to reboot from Samsung EVO 860 which I discuss here:

    There is no "of course it will work". A lot of people with older Macs (including myself) are having issues with the EVO 860. Something is causing the whole machine to hang before EFI on hot restarts. Cold starts and shut downs do work, but on my MacPro it will not restart.
