1 out of 5 eggsExcellent except for ...

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD512BW 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: (My LOW rating is based SOLELY upon 'encryption' issues addressed in 'CONS' below. In all other areas this is a 5-STAR drive . Crypto can be SO important to many users that it alone can be THE critical issue)
Works fine in my Lenovo E545 .. removal and insertion was simple. This is a fast and solid drive, The old drive easily was imaged onto this SSD using samsung's utility (included, along with 'Magician' which is an important program too)

Cons: Serious concerns exist regarding it's encryption system. Drive is unlocked when first installed and used, and i THINK encryption is not activated until one sets a password in laptop's BIOS. These issues are only poorly addressed. One site said there's a difference in results if you set a USER password or an ADMINISTRATOR password .. Nowhere could I find any discussion of issues such as:
1) does Samsung retain any 'secret' password that could be obtained by any interested parties..
2) can one ever CHANGE one's password ..
Big fault is the near total lack of information on these matters .

Other Thoughts: The drive is said NOT to work via TrueCrypt ... and i believe it!
Until such issues are clearly and openly addressed my advice is NOT to use these SSD's where true security is needed.

5 out of 5 eggs840 Pro 512GB

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD512BW 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Plug it in; it works. I have used this for windows, linux, and mac machines. This drive is fast and because it is a pro series, uses MLC which has more writes than the TLC. Coupled with the MLC memory type and Samsung's proprietary drive firmware - which is the absolute best available, it just works.

Cons: Price. Price is always a non-objective con. However, this drive has been on sales since the 850's have come out and its been a steal at over 40% off. I have just ordered another one if these drives but I have no real need for it. I already have all the space from the 10+ drives hdd and ssd I have but this product is not perishable so I can save it for a year and it will still be new. Why? Well, the pro version of these drives is like the luxury model of a car. And luxury models have more tech and better tech than the 3-4 year future model of a cheap version.

This means, this older 840 pro model is already better than the cheap 850 consumer model. Just look at the specs and it will be clear.

Other Thoughts: I have tried Intel and before they went to sandforce (think bargain basement quality), they were good. Since then, it has been Samsung and todays purchase will be #10. They all work, no errors, no issues at all. But I do not buy the cheap stuff so that means I always get high quality components.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper DRive

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD512BW 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Plugged in, formatted up. Made 3 partions, C was 80gb with W7-64, D 80gb programs, E workspace for programs 300gb+.
All other drives don't hardly turn on anymore. Boot is approx 4 to 5x faster than before and everything works.

Cons: none except with program to migrate had few more options but I could work around them. Better than Acronis.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid drive

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD512BW 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Good quality construction. Fits in the MacBook Pro easily. Easy to setup using the following procedure. You need to buy either a SATA II to USB cable or dock to make the copy. If you have a MAC, you need to format the SSD for Mac OS - Extended (Journaled) and use a clone program like SuperDuper! to copy the OS and files over to the SSD.

Cons: Be aware the Samsung software included is PC only and Samsung does not offer a MAC version.

Other Thoughts: Samsung just released the 850 Pro at a higher price.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD512BW 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Excellent value for the money. Very solid performance.

Cons: None that I have seen. Boots Win7 in about 15 seconds from POST. I'm sure that has to do with other components as well, but it gives you an idea of the performance this drive is capable of.

Other Thoughts: Marked down to $270. Too good to pass up.
