2 out of 5 eggsfailed after 7 months of usage

Pros: Drive speed was fast and throughput was consistent even when under heavy load.

Cons: The drive failed after about 6 months of use. I store games and my photos on this drive so it does get a lot of read/write activity (vs. just read). I have never had a drive fail on me so soon even with heavy usage...

Other Thoughts: I wonder if it's just bad luck on my part. All my friends who have bought this exact drive are happy with theirs.

5 out of 5 eggsOnce you go SSD, you won't go HDD again!

Pros: * Restarting computer only takes a few seconds with an SSD
* Make sure you're OS is on the SSD for optimal performance
* Loads everything in a flash

Cons: * Could not get it to properly work with my 1 TB HDD
* Had to reinstall my OS and wipe my drive to get it to properly work at one point.

Other Thoughts: This SSD has plenty of room, but if I need extra space I have a 3 TB external to store data

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: High density and no longer needing to use platter RAID-0 drives for scratch disc for the size and performance I needed.

Cons: Price but since I bought this on sale it's really a null and void issue!

Other Thoughts: I have this unit married up with an Apricorn adapter and it's excellent! I have traditionally used Intel drives over the last four years and I'll tell you first hand buy Samsung drives and you'll not be disappointed!

5 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: Very fast, Slim, and Light
Does not use much power - in a laptop, it extended battery life by an hour.

Cons: A little tricky to install because it is thinner and requires the plastic ring included, but that is just for laptops and a minor inconvenience

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 9 months

Pros: It doesn't emit odors or toxic fumes.

Cons: Maybe I just got a bad drive, it died completely after 9 months. Warranty replacement from Samsung was fast and painless but sadly my backup was out of date so I lost some stuff.

5 out of 5 eggsbest upgrade I ever bought!

Pros: * speed
* 0 moving parts
* reliability
* speed

Cons: price - it was over $300 when I bought it. Hopefully by time you buy it it will be down under $200

Other Thoughts: I love this thing! It has completely eliminated loading times that I was experiencing and I am anticipating using it for a very long time.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat drive, bad accessories

Pros: Fast, large capacity. Super light - I guess that's a pro.

Cons: 3 1/2" mounting bracket requires special screws that won't work with my Lian-Li case. I need to be able to use a standard thread 3 1/2" hard drive mounting screw that is larger than what this bracket will support to mount this. Had to purchase a separate 3 1/2" mounting kit.

Other Thoughts: Didn't even try the migration software because I use Linux and was able to simply copy files from one drive to the other. And to those who said the install instructions were weak - if you can't already install an SSD you probably shouldn't be buying one...

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Win for Samsung

Pros: Installed in an HP Pro Book, cloned from existing drive using Acronis 2013, and system is up and running. Windows 7 recognized everything as it should.

Boot times were really good until MSE was updated, then it got slow. However this is obviously not the drives fault.

I did not get a lot of time to benchmark the drive as this was for a customer who had me do this while he waited. The Samsung software is useful for updating the firmware, bench-marking the drive, and changing Windows settings to either get the most performance or the most life out of the drive.

Cons: The only con is about the software. For some reason every time you boot the system it requests Administrator privileges. This causes the UAC to pop up every time, and I don't want to disable it on my customer's computers.

Other Thoughts: Buy it. Just keep your data backed up. Though I have never had a Samsung die on me it does happen from time to time. When an SSD dies your not getting anything back.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk or poor shipping practice?

Pros: Price was nice, under a gig per gig.

Cons: First one arrived in a box demolished by UPS. Second one was packed on the BOTTOM of the box with paper on top. Don't know if it was jarred to death. Samsung support is useless claiming people are having trouble with the supplied dongle. Whoopee, thanks Samsung. Drive was picked up by my EVGA board but four, count them, FOUR attempts to move my system to the drive using Paragon Backup and Restore and over two days, drive was a dud. Think I'll wait until there are more reviews and Newegg learns how to ship delicate electronics. Sent back with refund pending.

Other Thoughts: Whatever happened to packing peanuts? EVGA still uses them!!!
