5 out of 5 eggsSpeed and Relability

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

Pros: Samsung makes a lot of good products! But the Samsung SSD's are a stand out product when it comes to reliability and speed. The Pro series has it all 5 yrs. of warranty and the software that comes with it is a very good plus. It enables you to adjust your needs and keeps the unit stabilized when needed!

Cons: None at this time! And I don't expect any!

1 out of 5 eggscant be used with Supermicro mother boards

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

Pros: Should be fast and reliable.

Cons: This drive can not be used with the Supermicro mother boards. It will appear to connect but then one can not load windows on it as a VM. The drive was replaced with a low end Kingston SSD to test the ability to use a SSD with the motherboard and it worked perfectly. We tried 2 drives. One worked for 2 days. The other would not load a VM at all.

2 out of 5 eggsFast until..

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

Pros: Super fast, runs cool and with less power requirements than a regular HDD or even other SSDs. Worked great for 5 months.

Cons: After updating the firmware last night, the SSD stopped working. Won't boot or show up in the BIOS. Tried to get help online but I couldn't find the support links. (Links work great for washing machines, cell phones, TV's, just no SSD area yet)

Other Thoughts: You would think that with the success Samsung's had with SSDs they would allow you to put complains / warranty claims for SSDs online. Other than this failure, the experience with the drive was great

Manufacturer Response:

Will:

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

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

Pros: This drive is, simply, incredibly fast. It will be a huge upgrade to any HHD system. Also, was easy to install along side my current HHD and then simply copy my stuff over.

Cons: Does not come with disk mounting tray. Wasn't an issue with me, seeing i don't buy poorly built stuff, so my laptop had a two sided tray already with extra screws to mount, but others may have issues. Dropping one egg for this overlook by Samsung.

5 out of 5 eggsFast

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

Pros: Its a very good device to use when you need it. Doesn't have any moving parts so it isn't going to suffer the problems of a Hard Disk Drive. My PC boots up fast and shuts down faster.

Cons: Nothing wrong with the part. I forgot to set the RAID to 0. My bad, better luck net time. Other then that. Price. If it was $100 cheaper, I would have gotten three of them.

Other Thoughts: Really, I would buy another one of these if I wasn't getting charge so much. Might get a PCI-E variant and just live with it.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Great Samsung SSD

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

Pros: Works well with UEFI
Super fast
I have recommend Samsung 840 EVO and PRO to my friends and relatives as it is a fast and reliable drive.

Cons: Not really the SSD's fault but I had problems with Samsung Magician. The program installed properly but when launching the program my PC Locks. I believe its an issue with my system board as Ive had similar issues with other software.

That being said Ive manually implemented most of the SSD Tweeks the Magician does for you and the performance improved significantly.

Other Thoughts: One recommendation for PRO and EVO owners. Leave Writing Caching enabled. Write speeds dropped significantly when write caching was disabled. Once write caching was re-enabled speeds were back up to spec.

5 out of 5 eggsDefinitely a speed boost

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

Pros: Speed compared to normal 7200RPM SATAIII drives is almost astronomical.
Latency in games dropped significantly.
Loading? What loading?

Cons: 512GB fills up faster than one would think.

Other Thoughts: I was considering getting pieces together for a whole new rig when I remembered hearing about how much SSDs jump speed up and thought I'd give it a try, after all, my current rig is only 2 years old (tech wise). Definitely gave it new life, replaced the C drive with this so Windows and game binaries can run off it, and I was impressed. I thought it was a little high on the price at first but now I believe it is well worth it.
