5 out of 5 eggsSAMSUNG 840 Pro 512GB SSD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PD512BW

Pros: I bought the Samsung Pro SSD to replace the HDD in my gaming computer. The instillation was very easy and I did not have install any special drivers. Boot up and shutdown of Windows is really fast, but what is even better is the short time it takes to perform the monthly Microsoft updates. It's nice not having to wait for 10-15 minutes for the hard drives to write all the files. It takes less time to install the updates than it takes to download them! I image using an SSD with a Linux OS would be awesome since there is no drive C.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The only to programs so far that I have seen that actually benefit from an SSD are Trainz simulator programs, Minecraft, and Microsoft Flight Simulator X. In all 3 games when your moving around, the trees and other objects appear instantly, where as with an HDD there can be lots of lag waiting for all the objects to load, which can take over a minutes in some cases. It was an unexpected benefit. I bought a laptop not too long ago and plan to get an SSD for that to.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Reliable

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PD512BW

Pros: I picked this up on sale as a replacement to the 15K HDD in a gaming desktop. After nearly 5 months it has been solid and performs great. ATTO's Disk Benchmark returns high I/O results that blow the 15K away; as you would probably expect. I kept the 15K around as overflow if I ever need it.

Cons: Expensive when not on sale.

Other Thoughts: If you're in the market for a new SSD to replace or supplement your spinning disk, there's no reason not to get this drive. If you can wait, try to get it on sale.

1 out of 5 eggsWon't initialize

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PD512BW

Pros: none at the moment

Cons: will not initialize and samsung wizard says device is in locked state. I cannot get it to unlock. It worked for a while and now it just quit.

Other Thoughts: If it wasn't past the 30 day RMA period I would send it in for a replacement but its too late for that. Samsung usually has a good product but I am really disappointed with this one.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, Quiet, Reliable

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PD512BW

Pros: Once you go Solid State you won't go back. Improvement in just about every aspect of my experience with my computer. Faster load times (for textures, saves, no more random skips in heavy textured games (ie. heavily modified skyrim) Faster boot times, quiet, not hot and will last longer than my 7500 and 15000 rpm drives.

Cons: Not a one.

1 out of 5 eggsShort live span

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PD512BW

Pros: This was an incredibly fast drive while it was alive.

Cons: I purchased the drive in April and it died in December. Very unfortunate. After looking on a couple other review sites. I saw this short life span was very common in fact.

Other Thoughts: I just filled out my XRA form on Samsung. I will update this review with information on their RMA service. I haven't heard good things, but i'll keep you informed.
