1 out of 5 eggsHorrible.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Don't know. Haven't received a working drive.

Cons: RAW format and cannot change it. Whenever I try to do anything with the drive, it will disappear out of disk management within 5 minutes of trying to do anything related to the drive. Only way to bring it back is to reboot. I am unable to use this drive even with a lot of effort. Not worth the time or money for me.

Other Thoughts: Wish it worked seeing as I was holding out on my previous drive to go bad before I would spend the money for a SSD to replace it.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome SSD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This is my third Samsung 840 Pro SSD and I have no doubt that it will be as reliable as the first two. The first is in a desk top that I upgraded and the second is in a Mac book Pro. I plan to use the third in another desktop upgrade.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This was my first choice when I decided to use solid state drives for my operating systems.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value for its size

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Boot time on my laptop drastically reduced. 10s from the old >30s. Sometimes the windows logo doesn't have time to finish spinning. (Windows 7 Pro)
I've never used more than half of the space even with all of my software and programs I have installed and believe me, I have a lot!
Really easy to install OS, partition hard drive how I want,

Cons: Not the cheapest stuff in the world. Give it a few more years perhaps for prices to come down even more. (Looks like it dropped ~$30 since I bought it a year ago)

5 out of 5 eggsThis drive is the the best!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I went out on a limb here and decided to get two of these and run it in RAID-0. Wow! This setup beats most benchmarks out there. How about a Windows 7 Ultimate boot time of 7 seconds (and the extra time is because of my BIOS). Games cache so fast and latency is a thing of the past. I want to say I was able to completely install Windows 7 and at the desktop in less than 15 minutes. Drive packaging was excellent.

Cons: I can' t think of one negative thing to say (and I can usually come up with something!).

Other Thoughts: Just about every machine supports SATA III. Don't forget to make sure your motherboard supports RAID if you decide to hook up multiple drives and want to mirror or stripe them.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Easy to set up. GREAT cloning software which made the move from a smaller capacity SSD very easy. Speed of Windows 7 start-up is a couple of seconds faster than with my previous 128 GB Crucial SSD, which is nice

Cons: None so far

5 out of 5 eggs940 Pro

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I don't really know what to say other than I love Samsung. I used the Samsung Data Migration Software and it worked well transferring my OS from a M500 240Gb SSD. I normally wouldn't do this but I needed the system up and running fast. Also used the Magician Software to set it up. Everything just works

Cons: Nothing. Prices are dropping and I love me some SSD

Other Thoughts: Once you go SSD you will not go back.

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome!!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Installed easily into a PC laptop. Completed fresh windows install, and was up and running. The computer now boots in approximately 10 seconds. Laptop is way quieter and runs much cooler.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Really glad I finally pulled the trigger on an SSD and I will never go back to traditional drives! Although, if 256 GB isn't enough space, one may need to rely on traditional external HDDs or network storage. This drive came with 238 GB available for use. With Windows 7 Pro, MS Office Suite, Chrome, and ~75 GB of photos, the drive is around half full. It's plenty of space for me but probably not for most.

5 out of 5 eggsNow That is Fast

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Boot time reduced to about thirty seconds in Win 7

Cons: Lost everything once. Don't know what happened, but I had a recent backup and reformatted and restored and everything is fine and has been for a long time. Glitch I guess.

Other Thoughts: I put these in everything I build now. FAST, FAST, FAST!
