4 out of 5 eggsGood, but

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

Pros: SSD control software that came with the drive was expecially good for learning how to get the most performance with your SSD.

Cons: When new this drive would register 7.8 from WEI, 7.9 is what had been expected. A year later it is 6.9. With Rapid Mode enabled, it now reads 3275 read, and 2558 Write. Nice high numbers but, the WEI was only raised up to 7.1.
Aside from the numbers, it never has been as snappy as a Mushkin SSD first felt.

Other Thoughts: The drive has been reliable all through my tinkering. I wish the Samsung software had come with the Mushkin, because then I would have learned the needed adjustments instead of an RMA false ending. . Kingston also offered starter software, but that was it. When SSD's were brand new to the market, the rest left me alone to figure it all by myself, and adjustments were not made automatically with Windows 7, my firmware would never engage with the Mushkin. This Samsung gets. 5-stars for relibility, and 3-stars for actual use speed. Unless rapid mode was in use, the Writes speeds have always registered a hundred more than read. Isn't it always supposed to be the other way around? Yesterday read was 325 only. Went back to Rapid Mode; even though it feels the same, the numbers at least have the right perspective.

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

Pros: Very fast drive, and so far reliable.

Cons: It feels a bit cheap since it is just plastic, but I guess since it doesn't have any moving parts it doesn't really matter.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these, one for the system drive and one for my data. So far I have no complaints. They run cool and use very little power compared to my old spinning disks.

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

Pros: Definitely easy to use, the capacity i bought was low but that's because of my budget, and my loading speed is much faster through the SSD than an HDD.

Cons: A notification appears every time i boot the computer telling me my resolution is too low, but that's becaus ei use a 720p TV not 1080p.

Other Thoughts: try to get at least a 250 GB, it will cost a bit more but it's worth it in the long run.

2 out of 5 eggsDrive dead after less than 9 months

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

Pros: Not hard to install, worked OK while it was running.

Cons: Drive failed after less than 9 months.

Other Thoughts: Thought these were supposed to be more reliable than IDE drives , yet my old Western Digital is still running in the same computer after almost a decade. Trying a different company next time, hopefully it works better.

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: I've been using this SSD for over a year without any problems. Super fast for general use. Natural Selection 2, and Counter-Strike: Source both load extremely fast.

This is certainly the best beginner SSD you can purchase.

Once you buy an SSD you can never go back to a HDD.

Cons: Throughput is not extremely high for an SSD.

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

Pros: What can I say, it's super fast like an SSD is supposed to be.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Replaced the original drive in a new Asus Vivobook. What is it with laptops coming with 5400rpm drives these days?
