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.

5 out of 5 eggsSamsung SSD Upgrade Kit For Desktops

Pros: Its a solid state, what else more could you ask for? Dropped my boot time in windows vista ultimate 64-bit from 1 minute 23 seconds to just over 22 seconds. Windows 7 boots in 17 seconds and this was only the SATA 2 verison. Very nice presentation, 2.5 to 3.5 adapter was very nice polished as well as the drive. Norton Ghost saved me about 2 hours and the drive makes no noise! My old velociraptor screamed when it was booting up. Very, Very pleased.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I have been spoiled by the ssd. I hate waiting for customer's computers to boot when Im at work and the Samsung SSD Magician software is a blessing to those who are first time users of an ssd. Highly Recommend.

4 out of 5 eggsPerformance Index went from 5.9 to a 7.4....

Pros: This drive was a lot smaller than I'd imagined but it seemed well built and sturdy. The package was nice and neat and included a full version of Norton Ghost 15 (with serial key). Since I've always loved Ghost, this was an added bonus. Another great thing I loved about this drive was that it also included a 3.5 mounting bracket. Most SSD's don't include that, but this one did... and it was one of the reasons I choose this one.

After installing the drive, my performance index, which was the lowest score, climbed from a 5.9 to a 7.4.

Cons: There aren't any real cons or issues I have with the drive as of yet. The Samsung software SSD Magician that comes with it is outdated and didn't work properly with Win7 64-bit. However, as soon as I installed it, I received a message about a software update. Please note, you can't install the updated program until you first uninstall the old version of Magician...

Other Thoughts: When a lot of people get new SSD's, they fail to set it up properly and it ends up failing after a few weeks or they have data loss. If you're a NEWBIE, you can use SSD Magician to optimize your SSD automatically and make changes on your O/S. Here is what you should do. If you're cloning a disk image from old regular hard drive to a new SSD, you need to run the Performance Index so your computer will detect the SSD and activate TRIM and Disable Disk Defragmentation. New reinstalls don't have to worry about this. After installation, go to Computer... Right click SSD and TURN OFF Indexing on SSD Drive only...also turn off System Restore and Page File on SSD drive, too. Finally, to help save drive space, if you have a second larger hard drive, I would recommend changing the location of the following folders: Documents, Music, Pictures, Saved Games, Videos..

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: I've been working with this hard drive for almost a month, and immediately noticed a huge boost in performance. It used to take me almost 5 minutes to start working, not it takes about 30 Seconds. Love It!

Cons: None found at this time.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review - (6 Months)

Pros: This SSD works GREAT! I love it... My NEW system has been running for OVER 6 months without ANY MAJOR GRIPES OR BUGS!!!

I bought this SSD ($96.99) BEFORE the Desktop Upgrade Kit (Consisting of HD Tray, USB Cable, Samsung Magican, Power Cable, & Norton Ghost) became available. While a nice add-on, it REALLY wasn't needed in MY case. Even so, SOME people might NEED this option. But is THIS worth the $124.99 - I DON'T THINK SO...

The Magican Software is nice (download from SAMSUNG) & has nice features & it DOESN'T Re-Format the SSD when doing updates!!! Nice..

This unit is SUPER QUIET & HAS NO HEAT PROBLEMS & IS (AT LEAST) 10 TIMES FASTER THAN A REGULAR HD - NICE!!!

I am NOT running this HD as a RAID System (Personally, I DO NOT LIKE RAID SYSTEMS). GRANTED RAID's ARE FASTER, BUT there are few HD Programs out there THAT SUPPORT RAID Systems...

WARNING: DO NOT USE DISK DEFRAGMENTORS ON RAID SYSTEMS!!!

Take my advice - Get one.

SEE BELOW FOR MY ADVENTURE IN NEVER-NEVER (

Cons: I JUST bought (about 6 Months ago) a COMPLETE SYSTEM (a combo offer from NewEgg) which was delivered in ONLY 2 DAYS. You ROCK NewEgg!!!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.634260

ALL for around $525 - the ONLY thing I was NOW missing was the OS (Win 7-64Bit) & an SSD HD (a SAMSUNG 470 - 64GB). These REGRETFULLY I ordered separately (BIG MISTAKE!)...

1st off NewEgg shipped BOTH the OS & the SSD (in seperate packages) via USPS instead of UPS (BIG MISTAKE) which took OVER 10 days (PLUS I COULD NOT TRACK THEM).

Then the OS was either LOST IT OR WAS STOLEN... Then it took ANOTHER 10 days to investigate it - then when it was resolved ANOTHER 10 days to RE-SHIP it (AGAIN via USPS ((ANOTHER MISTAKE???))...

Half-way thru this mess I had already gotten the SSD (thankfully) but NOW I still had to wait on the OS to arrive...

Well it (the OS) FINALLY arrived now all I had to do was Print ALL the INFO on setting up a SSD for Win 7-64 which was fairl

Other Thoughts: People ask me WHY I didn't get a BIGGER SSD (other than 64GB)? Why should I - 64GB is big enough (AND cheap enough) for my needs. Plus I have another HD (1GB) as my D-Drive that I use for my BIG games & storage & such.

PLUS IT LOADS SO FAST I don't even have time to get up & get something to snack on. NOW I'm also LOSING WEIGHT! PLUS, NO MORE WAITING!!!

This SSD holds the following programs with NO PROBLEMS!!!

BitComet
Boxee
HP MediaSmart Server
Microsoft Office 2002
Adobe Photoshop 7.0
Total Commander 7.55
Advanced WMA Workshop
EAC
CloneDVD2

5 out of 5 eggsNice upgrade kit

Pros: Kit includes everything you need to install SSD in your desktop. This SSD has almost all positive reviews. No issues for me, but it's only been a week.

Cons: Not SATA3, but my motherboard is only SATA2 anyway.

Other Thoughts: Windows Experience Index is 7.6, FWIW. Samsung is soon going to release SATA3 drives which may replace the 470 Series.
