5 out of 5 eggsReliable and Fast

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This SSD is quite possibly the fastest drive I have ever come in contact with. When they "PRO", they mean "PRO"! My boot up times between power button and login screen are between 3 and 5 seconds usually with my Asus Sabertooth X79 MB and i7-4820k. This model isn't very specious, but the only things I put on it are my OS, programs, and data for fast access. I still have only used about 60% of the drive.
As far as reliability is concerned, I've had this drive for just at or past a year now and it has never once returned an error, failure, or issue of any kind. I have not have any slow downs, and no matter how much I put on it, my sequential and random read speeds star very consistent at the amount advertised.

Cons: I really don't have any. It is still even years later a very expensive device, but me still standing here a year later having never had a problem with it makes this device more and more worth it every day.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a drive that is easily 99th percentile as far as read and write speeds are concerned, this is probably the best choice. I have had just a little bit of experience with other brands and products, including the intel 7-0 series drives or even the samsung EVOs, and none of them even come close to touching this beautiful and well made piece of technology.
On another side, I will say if you're not looking for absolute top tear performance, then I'd go with the EVOs or something a bit cheaper, but if you need one that will last and remain consistently fast for as long as SATA 6Gb/s is still not obsolete, this is probably the best choice.

5 out of 5 eggsFast,Fast, Fast

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, check out the boot times! Pentium Core booting windows 7 pro in 15 seconds for my HTPC, was 1:45 with factory HDD. Better rating than the new 850 pro

Cons: No mounting bracket for 3.5 inch slot, or SATA cable

Other Thoughts: If needed make sure you buy mounting bracket adapter and SATA cable, as they are not included.

4 out of 5 eggssecond Review on RMA details

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great drive while it lasted, no hard use, just operating system use, well maintained system temps. good drive, I must say The customer service has so far been exponential, it was a little troublesome to find how to get a hold of someone you have to just get the number and call them. I have made contact with a gentlemen on the issue with the drive, Got what I needed, I had to make a few returned calls to clarify a few things, all the phone calls have been great communication and the issues have been handled accordingly, I will write a new review once I have experienced a replacement unit. hopefully it will be as good as the customer service. Samsung # is 800-726-7864 should anyone need it. 4 eggs are purely for the customer service so far.

Cons: Died 18 months in, the reason I bought this was for the warranty, and I heard some good things about it.

Other Thoughts: I like the drive just horrible when it dies, You lose everything, I couldn't recover the drive at all. The customer service has been pleasant, hopefully I'll get the replacement quickly without any issues with the new drive.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome performance

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: 15 months, no problems. Windows 7 cold boot in 6 seconds! I use this as my O/S drive, and a second 2TB for games and data, and rarely install new apps on the SSD.

Cons: It fills up quickly with only 120GB. I got it for a great price, but recommend the 240GB, then you can install a few demanding apps on the SSD.

1 out of 5 eggsRMA is really bad

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: really FAST!

Cons: I purchased the product in December 2013, and it was dead in November 2014. I used it very carefully without any alteration and violation. It said that the product warranty policy for Samsung 840 pro is 5 years. However, I could not find a way to request RMA in the official website and I wrote an email to Samsung service center two weeks age. I have never got ANY response. I felt very disappointed about that. Actually, I had another Samsung SSD (840 pro - 256G) and planned to purchase 850 pro later. But I guess that I would not buy any Samsung SSD if the RMA is such bad and unfriendly.

5 out of 5 eggsBest in the 120-128GB Class!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Everything, this is an exceptionally great SSD that I found on promo for $90. Faster than the 120GB 840 EVO, though not by much.

5 Year warranty.

Plenty of online documentation with instructions for everything.

This SSD ROCKS!

The 840 Pro is the King of SSD's, yet to be beaten.

Cons: Didn't have the cash to purchase the limit of 2 when on promo.

Other Thoughts: If one can get these while on promo, do so! Yes, the 850 Pro has a 10 year warranty, but the 840 Pro is proven, it's the King of SSD's & yet to be beaten over the long run.

Though the 128GB models are a bit slower, it's plenty for most who aren't dual booting or has a ton of software installed (mine has less than 30GB used). If one plans to have a lot of games stored on the SSD, go for a larger model for even more speed.

Taking care of (not babying) these SSD's will make them last a long time. Samsung has their Magician utility to help with this, but sometimes their recommendation of 200MB of page file is too little, and a warning will show. Bump it up to 512MB if so.

These will also save on battery life if in laptop, though mine is the main SSD in my Dell XPS 8700, running Windows 7 Pro, where it's going to stay.

Be sure to follow the recommendation to leave 10% unpartitioned at the end, this helps to improve lifespan, and will help keep the speed up. Run the optimizer once monthly, this is a manual TRIM, other than that, this SSD needs no pampering.

1 out of 5 eggsWorks great while it's lasts... Died after 18months

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Okay it's a good drive while it lasts. Good speed faster boot times and all that.

Cons: Totally unreliable. If you want to blow some money for a fast drive knock yourself out. Died after 18 months. Not even using its full 6gb transfer rate. Well maintained and cool running. If you want to reformat your system when it dies fly at your own risk.

Other Thoughts: Waste of money HDD's are better. Save the money.
