5 out of 5 eggsGoing Strong for 2 years and almost 5TB later

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great drive with plenty of storage space to use as a system drive. I've owned the drive for about 2 years and have written 4.76TB to the drive and it still says the health is in good condition.

Cons: Price has went up $11 since 2 years ago

Other Thoughts: Good drive, plenty of storage. I'd recommend it!

5 out of 5 eggsStill Running

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: After 1 year and ~6 months this drive still works. Speed is still there and as far as I can tell, I don't see any wear on this drive. I expect it to last another 10 years.

Cons: None what so ever.

Other Thoughts: Over the years I've had several ssds. The ones from OCZ, Kingston and AData all fail within months. This piece of hardware has performed so well and lasted so long that I at this point in time will only suggest Samsung brand ssd's to other people. Hah, I feel like I should be sponsored by Samsung for all the business I've brought them.

I paired this ssd with a phenom II x6, set windows to utilize all cores and all memory on start up. The machine boots (more like a flash) to the desktop will all the drivers and driver managers loaded in about 3.5 seconds after the bios post.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Good value for the money. After a years use and writing about about 4TB till date, the drive still performs great. SMART wear level count shows 95% health so I expect it to last much longer.

Cons: *Write speeds are low, which don't matter much in a general everyday use.
* I EVO drive fixes the write speed issue with some SLC tricks

3 out of 5 eggsDead after 1 year

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, inexpensive.

Cons: Dead after one year.

Other Thoughts: Surprised that an SSD dies so quickly. Especially compared to regular drives that I have owned for years. Good news is that it has a 3 year manufacturer warranty. Gave them a call and they readily replaced the drive. Bad new is that I lost some data.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I've owned it for a year and a half now and its still kicking in high gear at the stated speeds and recently i removed it from my pc and added it to an old aging Dell Inspiron 1525 (BIOS A17) to breathe new life into and at first while installing it into the laptop, i got frustrated thinking that the ssd drive might have not been compatible because when i tried to boot it, it would say "No bootable devises--strike F1 to retry to boot, F2 for setup utility, Press F5 to run onboard diagnostics." and i try all those keys and no luck. finally after few hours i figured out that the problem was the the ssd was too thin that it wasn't being seated into the sata port correctly. it is highly recommended that you get a bumper ( most new ssds come with it now) to place beneath or above to fill in the void that normal 2.5 hard drives make. I had a bumper lying around from another ssd and i placed the drive in and it seated correctly and was detected immediately upon booting up. If you dont have a bumper, find something to prop up the drive

I read about the Samsung ssds and marvel controllers being incompatible on other forums but it think now (2014) all of that has been corrected

would have saved me alot of time if i had this to read so i write this for others

Cons: none

2 out of 5 eggsSSD Failed

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The drive was very fast. Windows 7 load times dropped to around 15-20 seconds. If you are coming from a HDD, it will feel like a brand new computer. Substantial read/write speeds were also enjoyed.

Cons: Purchased 5/31/2013, failed 7/16/2014. My computer started a continuous bluescreen/restart loop, with the error coming on a driver that is typically associated with hardware changes. I can't confirm, but a Windows Update may have taken place that somehow effected the drive.

After booting off a different disk, windows was no longer recognizing the drive or format. I was able to recover my data using opensource software, thankfully.

Other Thoughts: I enjoyed it while it lasted. The only option Samsung is giving me is a RMA, so I will follow through with that process and see how much longer the next one lasts. Back up your data! I *should* give it one star, you can thank the sheer speed for that extra egg.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks just as described

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Quick response time
Stays cool
No noise
Small size

Cons: 120gb, and around 10-20% will be taken up with the OS + updates. I should have thought of this ahead of time and purchased a larger storage size, but that is my fault and not the manufacturer's.

Other Thoughts: Very good product. I would be wary of using it as my a primary drive since the capacity is so small. But that all depends on the type of user you are.
