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 220 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.

2 out of 5 eggsdifferent batches exist

Pros: Fast

Cons: Different batches exist, including the ones sold by newegg. Some of these batches do not accept the firmware uploaded at the Samsung website. Mine is MZ-5PA128 purchased here but no firmware works for it and I dont speak Korean to check it out at the Korean website.

Manufacturer Response:

Not sure where you're getting this information. You can go to

for the latest firmware and SSD Magician software. Or, you can contact 1-800-SAMSUNG for additional support.

All drives accept the latest firmware. If for some reason it doesn't we will replace.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable and fast

Pros: Good value and good performance in a reliable package - wonderful performance for SATA II use - comes in a nice box with a mounting kit, SATA cable, and Ghost software - Runs cool and draws little power

Cons: Wondering how much of the expense went to the fancy box, and flashy casing

Other Thoughts: Samsung makes NAND that's fast and reliable

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing little drive

Pros: Windows XP was problematical with this drive - it really doesn't support SSDs all that well.

Windows 7 loves this drive. This is my "boot" drive ( C: ). It boots lightning fast with no issues.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: If you have additional drives, I strongly suggest you put your swap file and your TEMP files on another hard drive. Works much better than constantly writing to the SSD.

5 out of 5 eggsReliability

Pros: Very reliable and easy to use.
Fast as advertised.
No Problems.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because I had read about all the trouble sandforce ssds have. I am glad I did. I have had no problems at all with this SSD. I just popped it in and it sped my computer up immensely.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Great drive! works perfect and the speed vs. mechanical drive is out of this world.

Cons: The samsung software used to upgrade the firmware is run off a linux boot drive. I've made several attempts to update the firmware on this drive with no success.

5 out of 5 eggsNice and stable SSD

Pros: Got this SSD and finally upgraded from 32bit Win XP to Win7 x64 with it. Everything is super fast, and I had no problems with the SSD. Comes with an enclosure for installation on desktops with standard 3.5" hdd slots.

Cons: Price is a bit high, but I got this one since I didn't want to deal with all the problems OCZ ssds may have. A harddrive is the worst thing that could have die on you, so its worth spending more money on something reliable, which samsung ssds seem to be.

Other Thoughts: I didn't use the Norton Ghost cd it came with; so don't know if that's any good.
I recommend this SSD; my HDD performance on win7 is a 7.4 with it.

3 out of 5 eggsSlow and misleading

Pros: Not a bad price for 128Gb of space. Somewhat fast speeds.

Cons: Low stability. Had to reinstall windows twice to make it stable. One thing that REALLY bugged me was the misleading "Norton Ghost" addition. It's supposed to have "easy data migration," except it doesn't do that. It's purely nothing but glorified windows backup. If you want everything to work fine, you'll need a fresh install on this disk. You'll be better of in the long run.

Other Thoughts: The 3.5" adapter is only suited for unfixed sata connectors. My sata connectors are fixed inside the case to one side, so i had to connect the SSD by just laying it on the 3.5" plate, instead of screwing it down.
