5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

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

Pros: Got this to replace previous SSD which was just too small;
Used Samsung's propriety and free download migration software to clone drive. Went incredibly smoothly and fast...no hitches...I had new drive cloned and installed in minutes. Absolutely identical to original drive, only bigger, better, faster.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Once you get SSD drive, you'll never go back. You'll get used to putting all your large files on another HD, but still need some breathing room on this one. My first was about half this capacity, and just a bit too small.

5 out of 5 eggs30 sec boot up is no joke

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

Pros: - Insanely fast boot up. Even on Win7.
Boots from turned off to fully usable in the O/S in 30 sec flat.
- Comes with good software to manage speeds and help either push it to the max or keep it a reliable SSD.
- Extremely user friendly too!

Cons: I've never used a SSD before, so I don't see any cons versus a HDD. (other than size...)

Other Thoughts: I'm still not 100% trusting of SSD, so I have a 1TB WD Black to store all my important information and things that take up lots of space (like music and Steam games)

5 out of 5 eggsMore performance than laptop can handle

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

Pros: FAST!

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: My 2 year old laptop was getting slow... Bottleneck appeared to be related to disk access times. Replaced with this drive and wow what a difference even with the laptop only supporting a 3 Gb/s SATA interface. I haven't done a conclusive speed test but I recall seeing Windows reporting 240+ MB/s transfer on large files.

1 out of 5 eggsConsistent crashes

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

Pros: Boots up and operates fast...when it works

Cons: - Running the performance metrics on the drive yesterday showed that this was actually reading/writing at 30 mb/s instead of the 540/520 as advertised. I must have received a dud as my system constantly crashes when I use this drive. I reinstalled windows 7 several times as system files became missing randomly (or could not be accessed) and I even bought windows 8 to see if that resolves the issue. It did not. It worked for a day and then it started blue screening. Overall, a very bad experience with this drive. But it was pretty fast the first week.
