1 out of 5 eggsworks great, while it works

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250KW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It worked great for several months, was much faster than the regular harddrive I replaced with it.

Cons: Yesterday it froze in the middle of my work and refused to boot afterwards. It's frustrating enough that I lost all my data, but the Samsung support website made the experience even worse. I don't understand how these clowns are still in business, the "request support" link is missing all but 10 SSDs from the list. The regular support link does not work past selecting the product (at least on OSX in any of the available browsers). You'd think these guys test their own website once in a while, apparently not. I tried chat support instead, SSDs aren't even in the list, once I got to a real representative I was informed that my only option is calling support and I can't do it today because the office is closed. I've had a similar experience with my TV in the past, that took months to RMA, I figured I got unlucky and should give Samsung another try. Good job Samsung, you fooled me twice. If you want to avoid losing more customers I suggest you stop treating your support like a joke, I will not be buying any more of your products in the future.

1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250KW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: fast when it was working

Cons: Died after 5 months..

Computer just froze and drive was unrecognizable by any computer I tried to test it in... the drive does get warm when its plugged in, but that's the only reponse get from this drive.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased different SSD drives of various Manufacturers, cheaper low budget models.... I was always under the impression that Samsung was of the greater quality and reliability when it comes to SSD drives so I spent a little more buying this one.. Of all my SSD purchases, this is the first one to fail, all my data has been lost. I don't think I have the confidence to buy Samsung Drives again.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid SSD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250KW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Quality, external transfer SSD/HDD cable. Included disk can monitor drive, update firmware, and perform benchmarks. Looks mighty fine in the case.

Cons: none really, but if it were perfect it would have Acronis to go with it?
UPS dropped the package... literally right at my feet, but the drive is shock resistant, thank goodness. LOL

Other Thoughts: Other reviews have stated that the drive "died suddenly" causing loss of data which can & does occur with the best of products no matter the brand.
Can you say Windows Backup? No reason to point a finger at the manufacturer for fault when they have a good warranty & you should set up a backup schedule. Today`s data storage loss can be seriously damaging, so why not invest in an inexpensive drive to use for your backups?

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250KW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: fast

Cons: unreliable, fails

Other Thoughts: Three months old and this SSD has completely failed on me. No warning, no falls/drops/spills. It simply decided to quit working. Of course, Samsung's customer service is horrid (I've had to deal with Samsung customer service in the past on warranty issues and they have been consistently poor) and the only data recovery solution they can provide is a third party solution that costs $700+

After seeing the other reviewers with issues, it looks like I'm not the only one with a problem.

When the SSD was working, it was super fast. Unfortunately, it won't even boot up now.

5 out of 5 eggsLove the Speed

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250KW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This drive was simple to Ghost and install. My six year old could have done the entire process.

The speed increase is awesome.

Cons: None yet

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250KW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I upgraded to this drive from the OCZ agility 2. This drive gives a noticeable performance boost over that drive. The included Samsung drive cloning software worked for me to get the data from my old SSD to the new one.

Cons: I would say the data transfer software worked, but is not great. If you were trying to transfer from a larger drive that wasn't near full it wouldn't work properly. Using Paragon migrate to ssd would work better in that situation.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250KW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I have owned this drive for alittle more than a year, with now problems. It improved my proformance 10 fold. It came with the adapter and software and could not have been easier to install. If your looking to improve your system and startup time for as little as possible it's an easy upgrade

Cons: lousy directions

4 out of 5 eggsReal Screamer !

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250KW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This is a great way to make your system really sparkle regardless of it's age. Added it to an HP Pavilion dv7 laptop. Not only does it boot fast (10 Sec.), but large applications like graphics and video editing load and execute much faster. Re-encoding large HD movies is now almost enjoyable. It also extended the average battery life by over an hour.

Cons: It is more expensive per GB stored than a hard disk and I wouldn't depend on it for long-term data storage.

I knocked it down an egg because I couldn't get the data migration software to work and had to resort to an another package.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't depend on an SSD as my only drive in any computer, but it excels as the OS drive.

This laptop gets used every day and the new SSD hasn't hiccuped once since I installed it 2 months ago.
