5 out of 5 eggsFastest SSD yet

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

Pros: This is one of the fastest SSD's I've used to date. windows 7 and windows 8 boots in seconds and that was when I just had a single. Putting two in raid 0 makes everything load in a matter of seconds. with the discounts on this drive showing up after the release of the 850 pro, I can't see a better SSD to buy for the money.

Cons: Not the newest model, but at prices that keep putting this drive on sale, I might get one or two more until there gone

5 out of 5 eggsThe best SSD

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

Pros: This is actually my second Samsung Pro512. I purchased this one for my Macbook Pro. Soon to be installed. I have been running the first one in my PC for a year and a half now without issue. Nice and fast, super quiet, etc. Overall I have the peace of mind that I am using the best and most reliable ssd out there. Plus I picked it up for $311 out the door!

Cons: None yet!

Other Thoughts: I used the Magician software once and it worked great but later decided to do a full reinstall. So It has undergone several wipes and operating installs and simply works perfect.. No sector errors!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

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

Pros: This thing is blazing fast, period. Did I mention it was fast? Zero issues with this drive.

Cons: Expensive at the time of purchase but worth every penny. I will be buying the newer version (850) in the near future.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great, so far

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

Pros: Easy to install, extremely fast, the cloning software included with the drive worked great.

Cons: Doesn't come with mounting screws. The Magician software is clunky to update.

Other Thoughts: The real test will come down the road. How long is the lifespan going to be?

One suggestion when configuring BIOS during installation: if you're putting your OS on this drive and your BIOS has a fastboot option, disable it.

5 out of 5 eggsSamsung Pro SSD

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

Pros: Very low power consumption compared to HDs and early SSDs, Fast...much faster than HDs, cuts boot time to a fraction compared to OS on an HD

Cons: Still not as reliable as the good HDs, but at 1.5 million hours = 170 years MTBF compared to 5 million hours, I doubt we'll notice the difference although I think I'd like to stick around and see where things go.. Larger SSDs are still expensive and the larger the SSD the bigger the difference in price between the SSD and HD.

Other Thoughts: Wish they came in larger sizes for less money. Of course I've paid much more for much smaller HDs than the current prices of SSDs
I currently have 8 SSDs. 2 are 128 GB, 3 are 500GB and 3 are 256 GB.. Nary a prob;lem so far. Cloning system drives to SSDs produces fantastic reductions in boot times. Don't start anything not necessary at boot time.

5 out of 5 eggsSAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD512BW 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

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

Pros: Very easy to install, Windows Experience Index Rating of 7.8, fast drive...

Cons: Does not come with tray to help with fitting it inside tall tower case... Had to order ICY DOCK EZ-Fit Lite MB290SP-B 2 x 2.5” to 3.5” Drive Bay SATA/IDE SSD/HDD Mounting Kit / Bracket / Adapter after drive arrived.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to order http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817994162 along with this drive

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 6 months

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

Pros: This is a really speedy drive, easy to install and bundled with good software.

Cons: This is a rather costly drive especially if you calculate that mine failed at 6 months. After such a failure you will spent far to much time getting the 5 year warranty upheld due to the cryptic warranty fulfilment by Samsung.

Other Thoughts: Potentially this is a good drive, but failure in 6 months is hard to swallow. I have pursued Samsung's 5 year warranty — which is a story in itself — but am concerned getting another one which might show the same failure.
