5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

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

Pros: Extremely fast, as long as you have enough hardware to support the reading speeds of this SSD. You will be amazed! 3570K-4.5Ghz, 16GB-1600Mhz, GTX-760-SLI and this SSD makes a crazy fast PC

Cons: Don't come with SATAIII cable and 2.5" to 3.5" adapter!

Other Thoughts: if you have the money, you should buy 2 and RAID0 it... that would be fun :D

5 out of 5 eggsSUPER FAST DRIVE!!!!

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

Pros: Requirement: SATA 3.0 slot

With the Samsung software, I benchmark transfer rate to 420 MB/s! Very fast compared to a 7200 RPM @ 170 MB/s. Ran a optimization with the software and tested benchmark with a 5 MB slow transfer rate =(. Disappointed..... I noticed the RAPID feature.... enabled the RAPID feature which required a reboot. After reboot... benchmarked again and transfer rate was 4200+MB/s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOW! Beyond satisfied. Ran some video rendering/export and it doesn't even utilize up to 1% transfer rate!

The drive is super light! I wasn't sure if it was a real SSD drive or a fake. LOL

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My build...
MSI X99S Gaming 7
Intel i7 5820k OC 4.4 GHz idle 47c ~ 76c max load
Corsair H100i
G.Skill Rip Jaws 16 GB 2800 MHz 4x4 (OC to 2666 MHz)
EVGA SuperNova 850 Watt Bronze Modular
Cooler Master HAF 932 Black Edition
Samsung EVO 500 GB SSD
Western Digital 3TB Black
Current GPU: Nvidia Geforce 680 GTX 4GB (won't upgrade till another few years)

4 out of 5 eggsSpeed

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

Pros: Speed is better than HDD.
Migration soft ware did job with no problem's and easy to use.
Has soft ware to ajust performance of SSD.

Cons: Window's index gives it a score of 6.8 in ACHI mode. My Musckin Chronos scores 7.8 in ACHI mode. Spec's say this SSD is faster but Window index say's that it is slower than my Chronos.

Other Thoughts: Brother bought for me so I would have larger SSD for my Game's so I love it but if I by another SSD I will stick with the Chronos.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid state life!

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

Pros: - Comes with good software for checking drive status and adjusting windows settings for SSD use. This saves a lot of time researching the options. The software explains what the settings are and why it wants to change them. This is very good.
- System boots in a snap
- Games load much faster
- Objects/textures are all loaded and fully LODed as soon as a game world loads
- No more grinding when windows needs to do secret disk stuff
- 500gb is enough space for several large games so you don't have to be overly selective with the solid state blessing
- #pcmasterrace

Cons: - I've heard many horror stories about the migration software, so I didn't use it. This isn't a fair 'con' since I never gave it a chance. I used Ease US Todo Backup Free instead, which worked alright.
- I didn't get FarCry 4 game coupons like the product description boasted about. I think they discontinued the offer. I'm not sure if I care enough about the game to complain to newegg.

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these to update machines for my wife and I. This has been, by far, the most potent upgrade I've ever added. All the SSD hype is real.

For migration, I followed found on lifehacker. URLs in a review frowned upon, so google it if you need it. DO have your windows install CD/DVD handy. Windows freaks out with no hardware and you'll have to do a repair install. Be careful that you don't accidentally let the install nuke your programs/settings. The correct option is something like 'automatically find and repair problems' rather than a full 'repair install'.

Whether you get this SSD or another, get an SSD. Don't be a disk jockey!

Other Thoughts: got it on black friday at 189 pretty cheap and worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsBuy This

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

Pros: I upgraded from a 10k RPM Raptor to this. All of my games load atleast twice as fast and no longer do I have to hear the disk spinning up. After looking at Benchmarks online between the EVO and the PRO, I couldn't justify the extra cost of the PRO for the slight increase in speed. Great for gaming.

Cons: Doesn't come with mounting screws.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

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

Pros: Extremely fast, sleek look, well packaged, easy installation, great $/GB

Cons: none, so far

Other Thoughts: This is a great SSD at a great price. I bought this as an upgrade to my 128GB 840 PRO. I must say, this SSD is just as fast, if not faster than the 840 PRO. The price per gigabyte is great and personally, I like the sleek grey look this drive. For the money, I think this is the best SSD on the market.

2 out of 5 eggsSignificant Problem with Controller

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

Pros: This is a very fast SSD and the Magician software seems good. Prices have come down and 1 TB SSDs are now available. Do your research before buying this 840 EVO line of SSD's!!!

Cons: All of the Samsung Evo 840 Evo series seem to have a serious problem that degrades file access performance on files over 30 days old. Samsung recently issued its "Performance Restoring Software" to counteract this. However, be advised that this is an hour or more long process for a 500 GB SSD. And, it appears that this will need to be done about every 30 days or so to maintain performance. Most people don't want an SSD or HD that requires this excessively high level of maintenance each month, year in and year out. Avoid the 840 EVO series of drives.

Other Thoughts: Samsung should do the honorable thing and own up to its design flaw for the 840 EVO’s by replacing each one with a newer model that is not this dysfunctional. Samsung should not make their customers bear the brunt of their poor product! Buyer Beware!

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for purchasing the Samsung 840 EVO Series SSD.

Please know that your statement about the update needing to be performed "about every 30 days or so to maintain performance" is inaccurate.

Once the Performance Restoration is run, the firmware for the drive is updated. The firmware cannot be updated twice.

In addition, the length of time the program requires to update is dependent on how much data you have on your drive.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Samsung Customer Support toll-free at 1-800-SAMSUNG and a representative will gladly help you.

Support hours are from 9AM to 9PM EST, Monday through Friday.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful

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

Pros: My first SSD. Now windows 8.1 boots as fast as a tablet OS. Don't forget to install the Samsung Magic software to configure windows to run on SSD. Far Cry 4 for free via download was awesome on top of the discounted price.

Cons: I want another one, but the price went back up by $50 bucks.
