Whether you're a technology enthusiast or a hardcore gamer, the Samsung 470 Series Solid-State Drive can help you get more done on your PC in less time. The 470 Series allows you to boot up your computer in as little as 15 seconds and launch games and apps faster, and it uses two-thirds less power than typical hard disk drives. In addition, because the device has no moving parts--unlike traditional hard drives--it provides exceptional reliability, protecting your data from impact or mechanical failure. A brushed metal shell resists shock, and it also blocks dust and corrosion. And thanks to the included Norton Ghost software, you can transfer files to your new SSD without frustration. The Samsung 470 Series is available with 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

  • newegg Faster Performance, Improved Multitasking With sequential read speeds of up to 250 MB/s and write speeds of up to 170 MB/s, the Samsung 470 Series Solid-State Drive allows you to spend more time doing and less time waiting. The drive also features TRIM support to ensure that write speeds won't decrease over time (note: please ensure that your computer's operating system also has TRIM support). The 470 Series also delivers improved multitasking, so that you can easily edit photos, for instance, while downloading a movie.
  • newegg Includes Norton Ghost Software The Samsung 470 comes with a full version of Norton Ghost 15.0, a disk-cloning program that makes data migration much easier. With Norton Ghost's "Copy My Hard Drive" feature, you can copy your entire system to your SSD with just a few mouse clicks. The program creates an exact copy of your original computing environment; there's no need to reinstall your OS, patches, drivers, or other programs. Norton Ghost also provides a Software Recovery Disk service, which lets you easily restore your system if it crashes--even when your OS won't start up. Customizable, event-based backup features provide additional protection against unexpected data loss.
  • newegg Solid Brushed Metal Design The Samsung 470 Series Solid-State Drive features a sturdy, brushed metal hard shell case to protect it from shock, dust, and corrosion. The lack of moving parts also makes your data less susceptible to impact than with traditional hard disk drives. And, at 2.4 ounces, the device ensures that your laptop is lightweight and easy to carry. The drive's 2.5-inch form factor is compatible with most laptops, notebooks, and desktops.
  • newegg Longer Battery Life Why be burdened with the weight of extra batteries, when you’re on the move? With the Samsung SSD 470, you gain an average of 30 minutes extra battery life per charge vs. conventional HDDs. Since it has no moving parts like old-style HDDs, the Samsung SSD 470 consumes a lot less power, resulting in a longer battery life.

4 out of 5 eggsGood SSD for the price

Pros: EXCELLENT power consumption. Boots fast, loads applications quickly.

Cons: Not quite as zippy as some SSDs out there.

Other Thoughts: For the price, this SSD is a solid winner. Good performance, great power consumption. All-day computing without the drain of a spinning disk or higher consumption of other SSDs.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Fast!

Pros: Installed Windows 7 64bit on it and it starts super fast from shut down! Plus i got norton ghost!

Cons: Not alot of space, i would recommend at least 120gb if you want some free space for other programs.

Other Thoughts: its a samsung so you know its good. and fyi norton ghost is good and all but it might get annoying when it keeps asking to back up everything after you've already done it, at least me anyways.

5 out of 5 eggsFaster than the others

Pros: I've used other brands, but this one is the fastest 2.5" single drive. WEI is 7.7 with one SSD, 7.9 with two or more. With a second generation Core i3 or better, it will boot Windows 7 before the four colors become one to make the logo.

Cons: Write speed was only 90MBps or so to a single drive

Other Thoughts: Read speed is almost 500MBps at peak bursts and over 250MBps sustained.

VERY light weight. Feels like an empty plastic box.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent SSD

Pros: -Real-world speeds are close to advertised spec (210 read/ 165 write)
-Battery life on my Gateway NV50A02u gained more than advertised gains (approx. 1 hour)
-Holds your major software suites

Cons: -Does not play well with Fedora 15 dual boot
-Virtualization is not as quick as I'd like for it to be

Other Thoughts: Overall I am very impressed with this SSD. Specs are specs and people can argue that X brand is better than Y brand, yada yada yada. What matters to me is real world usability. I run a very spartan system, so the available space is no issue to me. I gained nearly double battery life with this over my old HDD and my PC is about 6 times faster in every aspect. I know that I took a hit in write speeds (the limiting factor in virtualization for me).

I know that Linux is not very SSD friendly. However, dual booting into Fedora 15 was much worse than I expected. I could never get wifi running correctly and the GUI consistently crashed when loading. Hopefully the Linux community will address these issues soon. Overall, I spent $399 on my PC, $44 for 8 GB of RAM, $97 (on promo!) for this drive and ended up with a laptop that gives my desktop serious competition.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far

Pros: Quiet, small, low power use. Enough room for what I need.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Windows 7 SP1 had no problems identifying this drive and using it to its full. Have been so happy and the system is so quiet compared to my last drive. Wish it had been more on sale, but not going to complain.
