5 out of 5 eggsPerfectly Perfect

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, fast, fast. Love it.
Comes with drive copy software.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Really liked these Samsung SSDs and they came with drive copy software, which others do not. Makes it easy to swap out old drive for your new faster SSD!

1 out of 5 eggsNot working with Windows 10

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, when it works

Cons: Problems installing windows 10. Installed on a HDD and tried to update the firmware, now it wont recognize the drive. The samsung website sucks for support.

Other Thoughts: There are 2 different RMA/Warranty sections, of course both do not work. I had to send an email to see about getting this drive RMA'd.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat drive, bad service

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The driver is very fast and reliable, when everything is working correctly.

Cons: Beware: This drive has some performance bugs, and it slows down over time. They've released a fixed firmware for the drive, but it speeds up the drive at the cost of long-term reliability. By itself, the cost to reliability is acceptable, but...

Samsung Magician software is not fully compatible with Windows 10, and I can't re-enable RAPID on the drive to properly make performance comparisons to verify that the issue is now resolved.

To make matters worse, Samsung support is pretty bad. I just spend an hour on the phone, but redirected 3 times, and each time the person on the phone sent me to the wrong place. The last person I got told me, after wasting about 10 minutes of my time trying to find a ticket number I told them didn't exist repeatedly, finally told me that I had again been sent to the wrong department, and that the hard drive department closed 5 minutes prior.

Further, inquiries on Samsung's facebook have gone unanswered.

I love Samsung products, but this support experience was completely unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: I acknowledge that software isn't going to all be 100% compatible once a new OS comes out, but for a large company like Samsung with such a reputation for quality screws things up this badly, something is really wrong. It's not like Windows 10 came out from nowhere and software wasn't supplied for testing. I can go back almost 6 months in a google search and find people reporting this issue.

The phone experience, however, was really the icing on this cake. Samsung, please fix your support process... it's horribly broken.

5 out of 5 eggsGood drive for a 2012 13" MacBook Pro

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I've used this in my 2012 13" MacBook Pro, and it's worked out rather well. Upgraded the RAM to 16 GB, and that notebook should last me another couple of years before I feed the need to upgrade.

Cons: N/A

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Super speedy when it was new.

Cons: Considerably slow after a year, but that may be due to filling up.

Other Thoughts: Not sure where the slow down is coming from, but windows 10 and a reformat is almost here so we'll see. Also occasionally when i sit down at my pc there will be the "are you sure you want to exit" popup from the samsung magician software without trying to close it so I don't know whats up with that.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks great while it lasted.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Works great while it lasted. Software was useless to me. Price was in a good range.

Cons: Failed after 5 months of use. Good thing was it didn't completely fail. It would work for about 2 minutes before it cause a blue screen. Enough time for me to back up my data...rinse and repeat. this is the second Samsung SSD drive that had failed on me.

Other Thoughts: The only thing Samsung got me on is the $$ per GB for their SSD lineups, but so far it is proving to be more of a headache than it's worth.
