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.

5 out of 5 eggsSamsung Pro 512GB

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

Pros: Awesome SSD, Fast. I had a RAID 0 setup with (2) Samsung Pro 256GB and I don't see any different in degradation in performance with this drive and RAPID mode set. In fact I see more fluid performance instead.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsFast with great software for cloning boot drive

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

Pros: Smoking fast compared to my old Seagate 5900 rpm drive
Boot times faster by a factor of 4
Software was fast and easy to use. Cloned my boot drive with no problems.
5 year warranty

Cons: Price was a little steep but got it on sale for around 3 bills.

Other Thoughts: Used this for replacing my 5 year old boot drive on my main Win 7 desktop computer. Cloning software will require that your original drive get wiped clean, so make sure to back up everything in case something does wrong, but nothing did. My boot times are now at around 20 seconds or so. Used to be well over a minute with all the software that I use.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid product

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

Pros: 1. fast - far outperforms my other 3 SDDs
2. I think this is a pretty reasonable price point for the size and speed
3. Stable

Cons: See Other thoughts

Other Thoughts: This is arguably expensive, but you're also getting half a TB of SSD storage that's super fast. With that in mind, I think the price is completely understandable.

3 out of 5 eggsStriping Samsung 840Pro SSDs

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

Pros: Speed is great, but...

Cons: I purchased these two Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSDs with the intention of striping them (RAID=0) for increased efficency with very large data sets. Samsung, however, does not support RAID, which feels a little like I was misled. Samsung's Magician software (which comes with each SSD) does not even recognize that the striped SSDs are Samsung. So trying to optimize is made a little more difficult, and is impossible using Samsung's own firmware. I am disappointed in Samsung when advertising that these SSDs are meant for the business professional.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for purchasing the Samsung 840 PRO Series SSD.

The Magician software was not made to optimize RAID environments. The user can still place the drives in a RAID array, but it is at their discretion.

Magician was made only for end-user configurations; RAID is considered enterprise configuration.


If you have any questions, please contact Samsung Customer Support toll-free at 1-800-SAMSUNG and a representative will gladly help you.

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING!

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

Pros: i purchased 2 of these.....one for my aging samsung laptop and the other for a macbook that my children basically ran into the ground. i cloned the drive from my samsung laptop and popped it in and the boot time is INSANELY fast now.....roughly @ 18 seconds. the macbook was a tad bit more involved but the improvement is equally as impressive as it was for the sammy laptop running windows 8.1. the macbook boots even faster but that's a given.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: keep in mind that on top of dropping in SSDs i also maxed out the RAM in both the macbook and the samsung laptop but even if i hadn't i'm pretty sure the performance would have improved exponentially.

i am really impressed with them and highly recommend them. they're worth every penny!
