5 out of 5 eggsGreat Upgrade for the Price

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-MTE250BW mSATA 250GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great price, performance, delivery and customer service. Samsung provides a cloning tool and their magician utility via download through their support website. Newegg advertised this msata at a great price. My factor msata was first generation and doesn't come close to the specs and performance of the Samsung 840 EVO.

Cons: None to mention

Other Thoughts: None so far. I have seen reviews stating that the product didn't last or was bad out of the box. Choose a manufacturer that you trust as these products do fail and the difference between the devices is the customer service of the manufacturer. I have always had good luck with dealing with Newegg and Samsung whenever support or product repair or replacement was needed.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks, Fast, no crashes

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-MTE250BW mSATA 250GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Doesn't require a sata bay, or sata cables, or mounting brackets.

Very fast, but not as fast as the Sata6.0 verson which I also have.

Small. as in takes up no extra room in your case since it clicks onto the motherboard in a special slot.

no Crashes since installing but I do not Run my O/S off of it I use it strictly for games.

Cons: Like all SSD's they slow down as they fill up so keeping 10% free is important. As such this means that you lose 10% of the size of this drive if you want to optimize speed keep that in mind when you are thinking about sizing.

There is no heat dissipation like on the sata models which are encased in an aluminum body.

Because it is msata is only sata 3gb not sata 6gb it is slightly slower then the others. But after hooking up my identical drive that is sata 6 to the sata 6 port with an HQ cable I saw little difference between the two drives. It seems they don't go far passed capping out the sata 3gb/s signal.

Other Thoughts: I might wan to put a little copper heatsink on it. It would function great as a O/S drive.

Make sure you have an msata port on your motherboard to utilize.

It's a samsun Evo there drives are great, don't cheat yourself out of the quality for a few bucks. These samsung SSD's are stable fast and reliable.

5 out of 5 eggsGood value for the money !! Mod#: MZ-MTE250BW

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-MTE250BW mSATA 250GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Not quite as fast read speed (burst) as the mushy's for the same price but the overall performance down line is way higher. I have only about an hour and am on a bare install.

Read is only 50? or so mb less than the mushy's, not an issue with 3/4 SSD drives in the system.

Cons: Why cant they make these double sided with each side being independent (own controller) on the chip. EX: this chip would be 2x128 with double the speeds. Then i could complain my laptops is the bottle neck and only goes 1800/2000 mbps

Other Thoughts: My test Laptop MSI--GTX880m -- i7/4800QM -- 4x4gb @ 1866 --
3 x SSD(this drive) in Raid 0.. I will add the 4th drive to the raid tomorrow it didn't show up today??

5 out of 5 eggsWow - Awesome

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-MTE250BW mSATA 250GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Easy to Install
Fast
Solid Performance
Small

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I got this for my new notebook that has 2 mSATA ports. I plugged it in, went to the disk untility in Win 8.1 and Poof; a fast 250 MB drive. I'm actually not booting from it but chose to install my most frequently used games instead.

5 out of 5 eggsfast, Fast, FAST

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-MTE250BW mSATA 250GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This thing is blazing fast. The numbers have even exceeded what Samsung stated (around 550 MB/s if I remember right). My laptop boots from nothing in about 10 seconds, windows took 10 minutes to install. Make sure to use the magician software from their website (www.samsung.com/ssd, then register your product) and it will boost your performance more than you expect.

Cons: The cloning software was a little wacky. I initially cloned my HDD to the SSD and it seemed to boot just fine, but then I would get flashes of orange and my programs would all shut down. I tried to wipe the drive and clone it again, but it kept giving me errors. Finally I decided to just do a clean install of Windows 8.1 and it actually took less time than what I wasted trying to clone the drive. Afterwards I simply transferred whatever I needed from the HDD, formatted it, and now I use it as a storage drive for documents and such.

Other Thoughts: Save yourself some time and just do a clean install on the SSD.

5 out of 5 eggsLittle hardrive that could

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-MTE250BW mSATA 250GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Purchase this to replace slowly dying plexor SSD of the same size in my laptop. Plexor wont let me get the replacement drive first so I could clone.
Dell laptop has a slot for an msata and this was on sale, so I thought it would be good to try out and I can use the larger slot for the replacement plexor.
Has work well so far, do a lot of cad Revit work and InDesign. Quick little guy. Can keep up with read/writes very well.

Cons: Non so far, probably uses less power, but with all the ram sucking power, I have it really doubt it makes a big difference than using a larger SSD.
A little concerned about heat though, laptop has min fans and no liquid cooling like my workstation.

Other Thoughts: Cloned with NTI Echo which has worked well every time. Be sure to have a dedicated computer with extra SATA ports available to use NTI. Licensing will not allow you to move soft ware from pc to pc which is annoying.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-MTE250BW mSATA 250GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very fast, budget friendly

Cons: did not come with screw but i knew that before i purchased it, not a big deal it would just be cool if all msatas came with a screw

Other Thoughts: installed this in my alienware 17 (new in 2014) installed windows 8.1 and all system files and apps on this and using the UEFI boot config in the bios my m17 boots in around 10 seconds. With windows my itunes and all system updates and drivers i still have 172gb of free space plus two 840 5oogb ssds for other stuff.

the only con i can think of (and not just for this msata but all the msatas i have ever bought which is 3) is that be prepared to buy a screw to secure your msata. I dont understand why no manufacturers ship these with screws considering they cost next to nothing so just FYI you will need to have a screw and if you rlucky your computer came with one if not happy hunting

5 out of 5 eggsUNIMAGINABLE!!!!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-MTE250BW mSATA 250GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: FAST - Windows 8.1 Experience Index Score : 8.15
Just remember the scale ends at 7.9, so I'm at .25 over the fastest possible score.
Dead Silent
Runs Cool
Power Consumption

Cons: Software migration didn't work as intended, but it may be the configuration Lenovo had for my computer i.e. multiple hard drives.
Also, the Samsung Magician wants to work everytime you turn the computer on.

Other Thoughts: I bought this, SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-MTE250BW 250GB mSATA III, for my operating system and the SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB for everything else. I installed Windows 8.1 fresh on this SSD and saved everything off my old drive on the 500GB drive. Since I use this strictly for my operating system, it has no competition. However, I was shocked that this not only out performed my processor (7.7) on the Experience Index, but exceeded the currently known threshold. If I could post an image of my score I would. Thanks Samsung!!!
