5 out of 5 eggsFast Fast Fast

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, easy to install. Provided Samsung Magician software is the best I've used among the SSDs I have tried (easy, clean, lots of tooltips to explain settings). Firmware updates do not wipe the drive which is nice. Advertised speeds were achieved once the SSD is setup properly thru the Magician software.

Cons: Can't really say I have found a con yet tbh.

Other Thoughts: The next series (850) is set to have a 10 year warranty. I will be continuing to buy Samsung SSDs for sure.

5 out of 5 eggsExceedingly Fast

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I built a simple i3 shuttle for my parents which included this drive. I bought this Samsung for it's affordability, not speed. All the more impressive that it feels to be an order of magnitude faster than my two year old Crucial M4. Running a benchmark comparison between the two reveals why. Sequential read is not so terribly different between the two but the 4k random and 4k queued read/writes are two to four times faster on this Samsung. The improved speed in booting windows and opening applications is noticeable.

Cons: Speeds fall a bit short of what is advertised but only slightly. I register 512MB/s sequential read, 493MB/s sequential write, 91400 4k queued read, 51700 4k queued write.

Other Thoughts: I was surprised by how light the drive was. I feared it might be empty. The 2.5" case is no doubt larger than needed.

5 out of 5 eggsWow

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Extremely fast
Affordable
Rapid Mode
Sparkles?

Cons: This isn't really a con, but it is more hot than my 830, and once I put it into the front cage near a fan, it dropped to the same temp roughly.

Also sparkles - could be a pro? It simply made me chuckle.

Other Thoughts: Rapid mode is insanely fast but I wouldn't use it outside of rush jobs or maybe to transfer some big files that you're sick of waiting on. I have no idea how much it hurts the drives lifespan.

I reach speeds of like 8 gb read and 6 gb write with it enabled. Yes, GB.

It's about 2-3 degree warmer than the Samsung 830, and I had originally put it in the back on my Z11 where there is no airflow and it was getting up to about 7 degrees warmer. A fan solved this as well as provided cooling for my ram.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work with any dynamic partition hard drive

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, small, reasonable price

Cons: The Magician and Data migration softwares Absolutely NOT work with any hard drives that have "dynamic partition". I learned this hard way as Samsung never claims this deficiency in its softwares. The Data migration software can NOT see the Win7 C drive which is dynamically partitioned (not basic Win7 partition), and hence can NOT migrate Win7 OS to the Samsung SSD. This means I can't use this SSD and its Data migration software to clone my Win7 OS onto the Samsung SSD.
How do you know that you have "dynamic partition" hard drive. Right click "Computer", Choose "Manage", and then click "Disk Management" under "Storage" on the left panel. If you see army green color above all your partition drives, they are "dynamic partition". If they are blue color, they are "basic partition", and the Samsung softwares will work. If you use any 3rd party partition program, I believe all of their partitions are dynamic partition. If you use the Win7 built-in partition tool, then it is basic partition. Correct me if I would be wrong.

Fortunately, I have another desktop PC with Win 7 basic partition. So, I use that PC for this Samsung SSD.

Another problem encountered during handling 2 Win7 OS (one cloned into the Samsung SSD plus the original Win7 OS in the original HDD). With both drives connected to the motherboard, and then boot my PC up. I had to get into the BIOS during booting to set the boot priority to the new Samsung SSD. Then, I reformat the original Win7 drive in the original HDD and turn it into another data drive.

Other Thoughts: Samsung must have the obligation to inform potential customers that its migration softwares (Magician) does NOT have any magician power over dynamic partition hard drive.
I would give **** if its softwares would work with dynamic partition hard drives. Since Samsung doesn't make this issue clear at all, I give only **.

5 out of 5 eggsHow to Make It Work

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: See "Other Thoughts" below for hints getting it to work when upgrading from an existing hard drive.

Cons: Many users seem disappointed with Samsung's vague instructions and lack of telephone tech support.

Other Thoughts: Hints for upgrading from your existing hard drive to a new SSD:
1. Connect the drive as a new, empty drive to your computer.
2. Power on and go immediately into the BIOS setup screen. Locate the SATA settings and make sure that SATA mode is set to "AHCI". Then Save and Exit the BIOS.
3. After booting up, use Windows' Disk Management to "initialise" the new SSD drive. This ensures the drive will be recognised. No need to format the drive; your cloning software will handle that.
4. Use Samsung Magician Software (installed on your existing hard drive) to update the SSD's firmware. Make sure power to the computer is not interrupted during the firmware update. After updating the firmware, re-start the computer if requested to do so.
5. Now, clone your Windows system from the existing hard drive onto the new SSD. If you don't trust Samsung's own cloning software try using the excellent EaseUS ToDo free backup software which has a drive clone/copy option which optimises for SSD at the same time. Apricorn EX-Gig software is another good option, also free.
6. *IMPORTANT* - After cloning, restart the computer and immediately go into the BIOS setup screen. In the "Boot" section of the BIOS be sure to select the new SSD as the "1st Boot Device". Many installations fail because users forget to make this change in the Boot settings. Also, remove the old hard drive from the Boot device list. Save and Exit from the BIOS.
7. Your computer should now boot up into Windows on the new SSD, and it should be significantly faster than before.
8. Come back to this page on Newegg.com and write a review about how great your new SSD is after following these steps for installation.

5 out of 5 eggsLightning fast and cheap

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I bought two of those to put in RAID0 in my rig. It goes lightning fast and I bought them in special at 140$ which was really a bargain.

Cons: Power and SATA connectors seem a bit loose/cheap, but had no problem with them.

Other Thoughts: It totally chumps my previous Intel 330 I bought in end of 2012. I had a RAID0 setup of those. According to userbenchmark.com, the following Read/Write/Mixed Sequential benchmarks gave 936/258/3454. The Samsungs gave 1036/921/967! I know we talk about a two-years difference models, but I still believe you should grab those when they go down in special
