Samsung’s Solid State Drive radically changes the way you play the game. Upgrade your rig for faster response, greater performance and an overall superior gaming experience. The optimized solid-state technology gives you that extra edge. Whether you’re a tech enthusiast or a hardcore gamer, a Samsung SSD will maximize your ability to get more done in less time.

  • newegg Wait less. Do more. Spend more time doing and less time waiting. Samsung Solid State Drives maximize the capabilities of your PC and get more done in less time. This means less time for a computer to boot up or programs to launch. Data is available much quicker and overall response time is significantly improved. The Samsung 470 Series MZ-5PA128/US SSD drives have industry-leading performance of up to 250MB/sec sequential read speed and 220MB/sec sequential write speed which leads to computers booting up in as little as 15 seconds and programs opening up in seconds. Improved multi-tasking allows you to easily edit photos while downloading a movie.
  • newegg Play Longer Stay in the game longer with less energy consumption. A Samsung SSD drive has no moving parts so it uses two-thirds less power than a typical hard drive and you get rid of hard drive spin ups and noise. This also adds an average of 30 minutes to a laptop’s battery or decreases the amount of electricity needed to run a hard drive on a desktop computer. Go green and keep costs down!
  • newegg Distinctive Brushed Metal Design Samsung’s Solid State Drive design has a look to match its performance. The sturdy brushed metal hard shell case protects from shock, dust and corrosion. Since there are no moving parts inside the drive, there is a greater reliability to protect data. And with a light 2.4oz weight, it makes laptops lighter to carry.

2 out of 5 eggsbad in 1 year

Pros: Pretty fast while it lasted. I dont have the benchmarks handy any longer (they were saved on the drive - oh the irony).

Cons: Crapped out after 1 year. Bios no longer recognizes a bootable drive. Tried reinstalling windows and it doesnt recognize any attached drives.

Other Thoughts: I went back to a 3 disk raid 5 array on non solid state.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of my best purchases...

Pros: Still running after a year and a few wipes - just as strong as day 1. Noticed load times on basically everything drop significantly. While playing DAO (which I had installed on a regular hard drive before this game) the load screens actually loaded in probably about 20% of the time.

Cons: Where as before I was able to read all the lovely hints and tips at load screens at my leisure, I now can barely scan one sentence before it's done in some games :) (one of those cons that isn't really a con). There is the need to update the firmware before use (at least for me there was) but it literally took less than 10 minutes to download and set up everything to update the firmware.

Other Thoughts: I bought this one at around 230$ on sale, and I do not regret paying that much for it. Can you get a 256gb for less than 300 now? Absolutely. So honestly, I'd say go up a notch for around $100. But either way, if you're someone who knows you won't ever need more than 128gb on your system drive (and need a sata II specifically) I say go for it. It's a solid product that works.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: This thing is fast (replaced a Raptor). Looks sooo nice, wish it was more visible in my case.

Cons: Prices haven't dropped to be even with regular HD's yet. XD

Other Thoughts: I made sure my install has all temporary data written to a regular HD and not this SSD. Easily holds Win7 Ultimate 64 plus a few of my programs that benefit from being on a SSD. Made sure I updated firmware before installing.

Pros: This drive looks well made with the brushed steel casing.
This is my first SSD and you can't hear or feel it running.
Does not even get warm while running.
Shipped in nice case.

Other Thoughts: Fits my needs.
