5 out of 5 eggsCrazy fast

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

Pros: Have two 840 EVO's already and will get another. No problem installing win-7, everything went smooth and fast, and now programs load instantly. If you don't have this drive on your pc, you really are missing out on something amazing.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Samsung released a firmware upgrade for the EVO and it's simple and easy to do.

5 out of 5 eggsIs it fast? Yes.

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

Pros: It's fast, and also, it is fast. Small, and light.

Cons: Fairly expensive. Got it on shell shocker though (finally).

Other Thoughts: I used velcro to mount it on my power supply so I can show it off while simultaneously covering the psu info stickers. Bi-winning!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive all issues aside

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

Pros: Samsung has the best SSD's out there, even given the latest discovery about the EVO series. I have not noticed any issues to date; but I know that the upcoming firmware update will fix any issues others might have.

I would say at this time - 10/12/2014 - that I would hold off purchasing the EVO series until Samsung issues a fix, but honestly the drive is great regardless. I think that a dent in sales for a few months might ensure the fix is delivered smoothly, but all in all Samsung is the way to go.

Cons: None yet. The performance issue that you can read about on pretty much any tech forum has not been an issue for me, but test data proves that it is real. Buy with caution at this time, simply because it is a known issue. Would you really buy any other product that had a known issue? Again I have to recommend holding off until the firmware fix.

Other Thoughts: Nothing against Samsung, just please get the firmware update out there so we can buy with confidence again. If you want to stay with Samsung, spend the extra 50 and get a 256 Pro.

3 out of 5 eggsBought 3 (2-120gb & 1-256gb)

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

Pros: The magician software is flawless, super easy to use...
I bought 3 Samsung ssd based on reviews and the ease of the magician software ( takes 45 min and you have an up and running ssd)

Cons: Like I said I bought 3 ssd's within a couple months of one another. The one that im writing about was the 1st one I bought about 9-10 months ago for my htpc. Worked great for 9-915 months and then out of no where it just started shutting off randomly. At first I thought it was the power supply, I still had the HDD still in the case so I disconnected the ssd and connected the HDD and BAMMM started right up...

I hope the other 2 I bought for mine and my wife's laptop don't take a S*#t

Other Thoughts: I don't think I will have a problem with rma but will see

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive for speeding up boot times.

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

Pros: Heard this drive was highly regarded for being quickand reliable and it doesn't disappoint. Can go from shut down to desktop in about 15 seconds. With 128GB, enough space to store operating system and commonly used programs, but I wouldn't use it to store massive media folders or storing your Steam library. The software included (on a CD) is also nifty to optimize the drive for different priorities (speed, storage or reliability).

Cons: None to report, drive works as advertised.

5 out of 5 eggs5 egg reviews say it all

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

Pros: Samsung's SSDs have been amazing so far. Fast. Loaded Win 7 Pro in minutes. Boot time is non existent. Set MB to fast boot and it's on desktop or at login before you can blink. Can't go wrong with these drives.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsOld data = huge slow down

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

Pros: Cheap, and starts out as fast as advertised

Cons: Once the data has been on the drive for a few months (2-6) the read speed drops from 400-500MB/s to 30-50MB/s. I have to defragment my filesystem so all of the data is re-written and then the speed goes right back to advertised speeds - for a few months.

Samsung support is USELESS.

Other Thoughts: The problem with the old data has been confirmed by hundreds of other users. Samsung has been silent on the issue which is a huge issue.

Based on their lack of support, I will not recommend Samsung to anyone until they actually provide some level of support other than "we can't confirm this issue." Too bad it's too late to return this drive. I am going to replace it with an MX100.
