1 out of 5 eggsResponse to Samsung's inane reply to my earlier review

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: None

Cons: Many

Other Thoughts: Samsung said: 'On systems with two drives or more (e.g. "C:", "D:", and "E:" drives) with the operating system installed on the "C:" drive, only the first two drives will be cloned. The "System" partition that is created during Windows installation is automatically replicated.'

In other words, Samsung's "migration software" will not copy a drive with more than three partitions, as I said earlier. In addition, the manufacturer of this drive doesn't know the difference between a drive and a partition, manual and automatic, or what their program actually does!

Samsung said: "When Hibernation Mode is enabled, the Hibernation file will be created. If you do not want this file, please disable the Hibernation Mode."

In other words, as I said earlier, the Samsung "Magician" software will create and unneeded and unwanted Hibernation file. Yes, you can disable Hibernation mode, but why should you have to do so? And, as I also said earlier, you can also disable the other system changes this useless and harmful software does --- if you backed everything up first --- but why should you have to do so? Why should the "optimization software" do the opposite of optimization?

Samsung said: To help us better assist you, please let me know the exact models of your two Asus AMD motherboards."

M4A88 and M5A97, but I will bet any amount of money that you do not "better assist" anyone.

And finally, I have received no less than 20 telephone calls from Samsung this week asking if I sent in a SDD to be repaired! They have not offered to address any of the problems that were reported, and they don't seem to know that they have already sent me replacements (with the same defects as the originals). They just want to ask me if I sent them my product two months ago.

To paraphrase GE's slogan: The name goes on before the quality goes in.

5 out of 5 eggsoverall great SSD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: if you don't need much capacity and don't need the absolute best performance this SSD is a great choice. It is silent (obviously, being an SSD), small, light, produces nearly no heat, consumes little power and performs well given the price. I've purchased dozens of these (and the Samsung 840 pro) over the past year as it has become my standard goto for a low capacity entry level SSD.

Cons: the diagnostics API could be a bit fuller, exposing more of the drive via a SMART API.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Speed of SSD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Blazing Speed! Virtually plug and play. Computer automatically installed driver and recognized immediately. Programs load at a fraction of the time vs a disk drive. Fast Shipping as always Newegg. Love this ssd so much I purchased the same model in the 250g size for the OS.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Asrock Z77 Fatal1ty Professional LGA 1155
Intel i5-3570K Ivy Bridge
Cooler Master V8 cpu cooler
Corsair Vengeance 16g 4x4g
(Dual) Asus GeForce GTX 550Ti (sli'd)

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Awesome upgrade from standard hard drive. Has worked great.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Does cause some complication in Linux install, if you'd like to minimize excessive writes. Well worth it though.

5 out of 5 eggsSamsung 840 EVO - Super SSD!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very fast
Very low power consumption
Light weight
Long Warranty
Long Life
Reliable
Great software utilities
Good Price/Value

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought two 840 EVO 128 GB Samsung SSDs, one for my old beloved ASUS UL30A notebook and one for my a new computer that I built for my Mom. It breathed new life into my UL30A while increasing battery life and reducing weight. Even though the UL30A only has a SATA II interface since it is older laptop, the extra speed is radically better than the old hard drive. Also the UL30A only has an SU7300 processor, it runs admirable running apps such as MS Office, MS project and Adobe CS. It turns out that having a fast SSD made as much difference or more as having a better processor. This will give it a couple of years more life. My UL30a is 3 lbs runs The UL30A has otherworldly 12 hour battery life and easily goes all day and then some. With win 7 and the 840 EVO 128 GB SSD it boots in under 30 seconds and runs my app quickly at 5 seconds to open Word 2013 and 3.5 seconds to open Excel.

My Mom's new computer s whole nother story. It runs a Haswell i5 processor with a SATA III interface, and 8 GB performance RAM. Running Win 7 it boots in under 10 seconds and every app that I can find opens almost before you release the mouse button. This is also true for Internet Explorer. It opens to Google in under 1 second. Outlook 2013 opens in under 1 second. You can go from powered off to running your favorite app or browsing the web in under 12 seconds.

It is shockingly fast and runs just as you would expect your dream computer to run. I set the Magician software to run for max performance since I also installed and data HD. I have been running it for 2 months now and it still is blazing fast. I have seen 3rd gen i5 computers using SSD drives but they are nowhere near as fast as Mom's. I don't know if it is the Haswell improvements doing this but the speed is appalling.

Another thing I like is the reliability and low power consumption of Samsung's SSDs. This really makes a difference when using a laptop computer. I will never go back to a standard hard drive.

When I made my purchase, I did a lot of research. The Samsung MEX processor controller is unlike any other manufacturers offering and is faster, runs cooler and has power requirements that are a fraction of the other guys. Perfect for laptop use. The reliability factor is also important and Samsung backs up this SSD with a 3 yr warranty. Few offer that and few SSDs have the performance of the Samsung 840 EVO line.

In my opinion, at the time of my purchase this is the best SSD made. It has industry leading performance, the best reliability backed up with the best warranty available and the industries best power consumption ratings, Quality and performance for a reasonable price. Best of all something magical happens to the performance when teamed up with an Intel 4th Gen Haswell processor.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Replaced old hard drive disk with this SSD, set BIOS sata mode to AHCI, fresh installed Windows 7, and installed Samsung Magician. This was my first SSD and I'm very happy how this has given new life to an aging desktop.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Speed.
Price.
Quality.

Cons: So far no cons.

Other Thoughts: This was used in an office SFF build and has been great.
Did not need much space so 120GB was enough and the performance gain was significant.
No more complaints about the computer being slow from the user of this SSD.
From my experience Samsung makes the best SSD's.
