5 out of 5 eggsSmokin

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

Pros: I have several of these and they all work faster then advertised. Magician software is great. Drives are great. Samsung is where it's at for ssd.

Cons: It will spoil you. If you have other pc's with disk drives you will hate waiting on them. This isn't a con though. More so a reminder of what a good investment these are.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is probably the most recommended SSD model, and for good reason

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

Pros: +Samsung & everything that comes with that such as quality & reliability
+Mid-high end enthusiast product for entry level price
+Magician software and Data Migration software makes cloning your data from your old HDD or SSD and setting it up beyond simple and fool-proof

Cons: -Un-proven TLC NAND vs MLC which is used in the Samsung Pro and most other brand's SSDs
-No SATA cable, 2.5" to 3.5" adapter bracket or mounting bolts

Other Thoughts: This is the 4th SSD I have purchased, two of the other ones are also Samsungs, an 830 (128 GB) and 840 (240 GB) both the 'vanilla' versions. I have used many freeware drive cloning apps and Data Migration is simpler and faster than any of them. The only problem: you can only use it on Samsung SSDs. The best part about it is that it only copies the used data and ignores the blank space. If your drive isn't full, this will significantly cut down the time it takes and makes going from a larger drive to a smaller drive much simpler. The included Magician software is also very simple and almost automates the setup process after you clone it and get it booted up the first time. If you are switching over from a spin HDD OS drive, Magician will automatically optimize all the necessary Windows settings to extend the life of the SSD such as turning off defragmenting and indexing among other things. It will also allow you to create a power profile specific for an SSD PC, check if there are any firmware updates and install them all in the same application. I did mention that one of the cons was the unproven TLC tech used in the EVO series as well as the vanilla 840. Recently, some EVO owners have complained of an issue where data that has been stored on the drive for long periods of time without being accessed become extremely slow when finally accessed. There is a special application that Samsung released which is supposed to fix this issue but it isn't included on the DVD since it has only been discovered recently (search for "EVO Performance Restoration Software"). The app can be downloaded from the Samsung 840 EVO driver and support site. It is highly recommended that you DL this fix as well as update to the latest firmware. The only reason I mention this is because there is still some uncertainty surrounding the reliability of TLC while MLC is a proven tech (since it is, of course, older). For average users, though, installing the latest updates, drivers and the fix should be enough to keep it running at close to its rated specs. As for my 830 and 840, I have yet to have any issue with them nearly 2 years later for the 830 and 1.5 years for the 840.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the best SATA SSDs.

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

Pros: Fast very fast.
540 megs per second in ATTO benchmark
Windows boots in 22 seconds.

Cons: TLC memory worrys me a bit. Since it said to not have as long as a life span as MLC. But according to certain review sites these and Kingstons have best lifespan and peformance.

Other Thoughts: Overall great SSD.

The software for performance restoration is great. If you notice it getting sluggish just run the software and it will restore it to full speed.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat while it lasted

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

Pros: Bought it in April 2014, worked well for the last 8 months and decided to not cooperate first week of December. To be honest, I switched over from Kingston because I wanted to try the drive out. Heard about the read/write speeds. Now I guess I am gonna just go back to Kingston and RMA this product.

Cons: Ran the performance restoration tool, reinstalled windows OS, however the SSD just wouldn't run normally. Windows would occasionally freeze or just wouldn't boot. I had a few backup windows images and I even tried restoring the different images to the SSD to when they last worked. Again, the result was just appalling. Wasted 3 days of my time reading forums.

Other Thoughts: I had to use Kingston SSD to save me this time.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsso hot you can cook and egg on it.

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

Pros: Windows 7U boot time is 4 seconds on 4GBs of RAM.

Cons: I do not feel a difference between this drive and my Kingston booting in the same machine.
Also, the other day, I had to shut down my computer while ripping a CD for work and because I could hear something cooking inside. the boot drive, this one being reviewed, was so hot that i burned my fingers touching it.

1 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: It looks nice.

Cons: Bought the ssd, because my primary drive went bad. Since I had an ssd before with only my OS I figured I would just put in the samsung and just install Windows 7 from scratch via USB. For the samsung ssd it would not complete the installation. I know it wasn't the windows install on the usb because I had used it the day before without any issues. I have tried cleaning and coverting to MBR, I have tried making the whole drive 1 partition. I have tried resetting my cmos. I have tried secure erasing. It said the ssd was in a frozen state, I followed the instructions it gave me (remove power for a few seconds, then try again) and the program froze. The drive is now locked, and I can't figure out how to unlock it.

Other Thoughts: At this point, I would just like my money back for the Samsung SSD, so I can buy from another manufacturer.

3 out of 5 eggsAwfully limited software

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

Pros: Fast.

Cons: * Doesn't work with Promise FastTrak 376 SATA controller. (It's old, but other modern drives such as my 2TB WD Black work fine on it.)
* Migration documentation expects you to have a USB/SATA converter.
* Migration tool is amazingly limited. It doesn't understand OEM recovery partitions, doesn't understand Linux partitions (I dual boot to Linux) and doesn't understand more than 2 Windows partitions. (I have more than 2) In short, it's useless.
* Samsung Magician benchmark says "not enough space on the selected volume" on one of my windows file systems that has 666MB free. It shouldn't need more space than that, and it should just skip it if it does, not quit with an error.
