5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: Works right out of the box, no issues what so ever.
Very quick start up ~10 seconds.
Definitely would buy again.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I wish I would have gotten a bigger one but the price is still a little too steep for me.

2 out of 5 eggsBetter than a hard drive

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: High read and write speed from the very beginning and hard to go back a hard drive once you buy one.

Cons: The older a file is on the ssd the slower it is to read. It will drop down to 60Mbps transfer speed on larger files, that haven't had data written to them in a while. I'm also not the only person having the issue, there are threads on overclockers, overclockers uk, and reddit. People are recommending to go with a mlc drive such as the 840/850 pro or an intel 730 as these drives are not having issues with slow downs. Though if you stick with the 840 evo it will still run faster than a hard drive but, your os and load times of games and other programs may slow down a bit after a while.

Other Thoughts: If you are on a budget this drive should work out okay for you but if you have the extra money to with the intel 730 or the samsung pro series.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal and value

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: Super fast, extremely easy to set up. Instructions were a bit sparse, as others have mentioned, but it was still pretty clear in how to clone my boot drive to this new SSD and swap them out. Cloning took about 4 hours coming from a 250GB 7200rpm Barracuda to this. Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit used, boots now to fully up and running in less than 20 seconds, compared to roughly 5 minutes using the 7200rpm traditional HDD. No errors, no problems. After you've swapped your old drive out for this new one, be sure to go into your BIOS the first time you boot up to set this new SSD as your primary boot source.

This was my first SSD, and I couldn't be happier with the result. Definitely recommended for those wanting to enter the SSD realm, but not wanting to drop big money on the larger drives. A nice compromise for first time SSD users.

Cons: Not really a "con", but it should be mentioned that you will need about 20% of free space on the drive you intend to clone before you can clone to the SSD. Had to temporarily move a lot of files from my old drive to an external to free up enough space to do the clone.

Other Thoughts: Great product, very fast, and shipping was fast from Newegg. It's nice living an hour and a half from one of their main distribution hubs :)

5 out of 5 eggsEasiest setup

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: I bought a prebuilt pc, and decided to upgrade just a handful of things, one of them being the HD. I plugged in this SSD and used the included software to make this my new boot drive and the process couldnt have been any easier or trouble free. Wonderful performance. 15 sec boot times.

Cons: None that I can think of.

5 out of 5 eggsstill perfect

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: Fast

Cons: expensive

Other Thoughts: just finished my new build, Windows 7 start up in 7 sec, I know I have all brand new parts for this build, but the SSD is the main reason why the system is so fast. I have 2 of these in this build, planning to get another hard drive for bigger storage.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD with awesome kit

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: Samsung SSD by spec are high performance and while I haven't benchmarked these drives, they appear to perform well. What is cool about this particular item is that it comes with a drive replacement kit (3.5" mounting bracket for 2.5" drives, drive imaging/transfer software, and a USB->SATA adapter). If you don't have this kit yet I highly recommend you but the drive with kit just you have all these goodies. Works very smoothly! After that you can just buy the bare drives.

Cons: None as of this writing. It's my second Samsung SSD (first one I bought over a year ago) and everything is working great.

Other Thoughts: The USB->SATA adapter is a tiny little piece of joy that replaced a whole mess of an adapter I used to have. The transfer software works like a charm. The drive also comes with a SATA cable and a mounting bracket which is also very useful.

It is however cheaper to just buy the bare drive if you already have a kit going for yourself.

4 out of 5 eggsConverter images misled

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: The kit includes a 3.5" to 2.5" drive converter, for ONE drive and ONE drive only (see cons). Includes transfer software and USB to SATA dongle and cable.
Haven't installed/powered up the drives to try them out yet, I'm sure they're fine.

Cons: The images I saw of the kit showed that the 3.5" to 2.5" drive converter could hold 2 SSD's. They have since changed the images to show that it only holds one drive. It could be modded to allow one drive above and below by drilling holes closer to the side edges. Mounting would have them offset from the other. Probably not worth it though, as the SATA connectors would not be in the same orientation.

Other Thoughts: Apart from my drive bay gripe, the kit was worth it as it was on sale and a promo code on top of that made it cost less than just the drive by itself.
