5 out of 5 eggsBlazing fast

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s 1x nm Samsung Toggle DDR 2.0 3-Bit MLC NAND Flash Memory (400Mbps) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Insanely fast boot times. From pressing the power button to being fully within windows in just 00.20.99 seconds for my Windows 7 x64 Professional with RAPID mode on.

Insane read and write times as well. I upgraded to this model from a 120GB and I'm very happy with this SSD.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Originally had this drive in a P55 build paired with a Core i5 760. It did not support SATA 3.0GB/s to the fullest so was only able to squeeze out about 75% or so of its normal performance.

When I upgraded to my current system built, that's where I got the 00.20.99 second boot times. It loads Battlefield 4 insanely fast, has no issues doing whatever I demand it to do. Simply a beast.

System Build:

Intel Core i5 4690K
ASUS Maximus VII Hero Z97
G.Skill Snipers 1866MHz Ram 8GB (4GBx2)
EVGA 660 GTX Ti 2GB GDDR5
CoolerMaster HAF XM Case
120GB Samsung 840 Evo SSD
250GB Samsung 840 Evo SSD
1TB Seagate 7200RPM 32MB Cache HDD
XFX BES Black Edition 850W Modular PSU

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s 1x nm Samsung Toggle DDR 2.0 3-Bit MLC NAND Flash Memory (400Mbps) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Read/write speeds are measured as being within official rating and so far the drive has given consistent performance and no errors. The included software cloned my HDD to the SSD with no trouble. Good product so far.

Cons: None yet.

1 out of 5 eggsKept Crashing

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s 1x nm Samsung Toggle DDR 2.0 3-Bit MLC NAND Flash Memory (400Mbps) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Affordable, fast

Cons: About a week in, when I was multitasking, copying photos from camera, editing in Photoshop, upload FTP, etc... Typical busy Web design work, computer would start dragging down to a standstill. Old OCZ drive that was too small never did that.

Crashed hard a couple of times with kernal errors and the last time it crashed, it asked me to put my MS restore disk in. Yank...

Old OCZ drive is back in there and working just fine,

Other Thoughts: Get the PRO version if you want to do serious work. If you have the Adobe Suite and want to do a bunch of things at one time, this won't cut it.

If you are playing a single game, or browsing the web, or a normal user of Word, this is probably ok.

Pros: Quiet. I use my laptop to record, and this drive makes not a peep! I am not going to put any mechanical drive into this laptop again!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s 1x nm Samsung Toggle DDR 2.0 3-Bit MLC NAND Flash Memory (400Mbps) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This SSD vastly improved my boot time. Did not have a single problem with it since I installed it. Other applications and games have vastly improved load times as well.

Cons: Did not come with the 2.5 to 3.5 mount. Had to use one from my previous SSD. Beware of this if your case cannot support 2.5 SSD by itself

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s 1x nm Samsung Toggle DDR 2.0 3-Bit MLC NAND Flash Memory (400Mbps) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: None.

Cons: Pretty much everything.

Installation requires SATA/USB adapter which is not included with the drive. I tried setting it up with a direct SATA connection, but the drive wasn't recognized so I had to borrow a USB adapter from a friend. Once I had the drive connected via the adapter, I was able to discover how useless the setup software is. The only option for setup is to clone all the files on the previous hard drive. If the previous drive has too much data to copy, it lets you exclude *some* of the files, but not the program files (so the feature is essentially worthless). This meant I had to delete a lot of my program files before I could start copying to the SSD. But when I finally got the software to start setting up my drive, it couldn't copy more than 859 MB before stopping. I spent 10+ hours trying to set up what turned out to be an overpriced paper weight.

Other Thoughts: Will avoid Samsung in all future purchases.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s 1x nm Samsung Toggle DDR 2.0 3-Bit MLC NAND Flash Memory (400Mbps) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast at first. The SSD honeymoon phase on this drive is ending though, see the CONS.

Cons: I've just passed the year point. There are currently widespread reports of reduced speed. Sure enough, my drive has been degraded. High speeds around 350 MB/s, low speeds at 22 MB/s. I have an 80gb 10+ year old 7200rpm drive in my computer just for the hell of it and that drive is still reporting 35 MB/s. Current expected firmware update coming 10/15/2014. Wait to order and research that the issue has been fixed before buying the drive.

Other Thoughts: We'll hope for a fix. I'll try and report back.
