Would I notice a real-world difference in general responsiveness if upgrading from a 500GB Samsung 860 EVO SATA SSD?

Yes, but it may not be much of a difference. For example, in the review of the P31 at Tom's Hardware there's a graph representing loading times of the game Final Fantasy XIV. The difference between the P31 and the Crucial MX 500 (about the same as your Samsung EVO) is 2 seconds out of about 11 seconds. Is it noticeable? Maybe. Is it worth an upgrade?

The P31 shines when you're doing lots of reads and writes as well as looking for data that's randomly distributed over your SSD. Does that sound like your workload? Do you do lots of long downloads of large games? How about often copying big files to or from your SSD? Video editing or content creation? If you can say yes, then an upgrade is worth considering.

Have a good night. Best wishes!

Yes, what "lovemydeal" said Day-to day browsing and gaming will not see a noticeable difference, but if you're moving around lots of files (50GB-100gb's+ at a time, like video files or lots of photos) then you would notice a very large difference.

You may notice it if you're holding a stopwatch and timing how fast things happen that you commonly do (ie. starting windows).

As opposed to what others are saying, you will only notice the difference in transfer speeds if you're moving between two ssd's that have similarly rated speeds (so if you're looking for that, then buy 2). That is, if you're transferring to/from a sata ssd, you'll still see the sata ssd speeds.

The main use for these is if you're editing content on the ssd. Scrubing through large media files and making changes, rendering large files/videos (although this is debatable since your cpu/gpu computations will likely be bottlenecked by even what a sata ssd can feed it)

Really, the only person who would notice this is someone who works with large files and is constantly editing for work. Possibly someone who is moving around large files...but generally not unless they're using 2 that are similarly rated

Also, there's no widely accessible internet right now that can exceed the bandwidth of sata speeds...so you won't notice any difference in downloading large files (ie. games) off the internet (For anyone curious, you would need internet in the 5 GigBit range to saturate a SATA III connection).

Basically if you need to ask if you will notice it, then you probably will not.

E: spelling
