5 out of 5 eggsWow, the speed is amazing in raid 0

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Have 2 of these running in raid0 and I couldn't be happier. To all of the naysayers that say raid0 doesn't offer a performance boost in gaming, I say they are very wrong. While my boot up time is no faster than a single SSD due to the raid BIOS load time, load times within games are much faster. I have played about 20 games so far on these and I am quite happy with the performance.

Cons: Not a con for the drives, but Raid setup was a bit complicated on my ASUS Crosshair board. Once I got it configured all was a breeze.

Other Thoughts: If you have a bit of tech knowledge and think you can get 2 of these set up in raid, Then I'd say go for it! You wont be disappointed!

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Might be usable for target shooting

Cons: The so-called "Migration Software" is a joke. It won't copy more than 3 partitions, so (if you have more) you will have to use other means to "migrate". With three partitions, it takes forever, and then times out without further explanation. So, after wasting an hour doing nothing, you will have to use other means to "migrate". (I found that the disk copy feature of AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition 5.5 (free) will align partitions and copy an entire 120GB disk accurately in about five minutes.)

The Samsung Magician has an "OS optimization" feature that creates an unneeded and undesired "hibernation file", destroys vital system settings, and results in significantly SLOWER performance. If you use it, be sure and backup your registry first, so you can restore your previous settings after the Magician messes them up.

With two different Asus AMD motherboards: When the ports are set to IDE, everything works fine, and the Samsung Magician detects the SSD drive, but warns that AHCI mode is not set. When the ports are set to AHCI, the Samsung Magician does NOT detect the SSD drive!

After less than one month of ~satisfactory performance, one SSD drive suddenly slowed down exponentially, and read/write speeds were too slow to benchmark, or use. Another failed with the identical problem in less than five months.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing SSD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Incredibly fast load times. You will notice a difference right away compared to your old hard drive.

Cons: After buying this you will never be able to use a HDD again without it driving you crazy because of how slow it is.

Other Thoughts: Samsung evo 840 series is great! I own a 120gb and 250gb i'm using in a laptop and a mac mini.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Being a first time builder, I was expecting quite a bit of speed out of this guy. When I installed and got Windows 8.1 to run, I was blown away.

The Samsung 840 Evo blew away my expectations. My newly build computer booted in 2-3 seconds, but I expect it to slow down by a few seconds when I install some more things.

Not only did it boot the OS in 2 seconds, but it loaded League of Legends in no time at all. Took about 10 seconds to completely load when playing with others, but around half the time if you play by yourself in a custom game.

I have also dropped it twice (in the box) and it works completely fine. Simple installation as well.

Cons: Not cheap lol

Other Thoughts: Great product. I'll probably get another one later on.

5 out of 5 eggsFast

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great SSD! Extremely fast, great software, easy to install, and allows me to boot in about 8 seconds.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great drive and totally worth the price. Only a little more than most SSD's of the same size, but much better software, support and speed.

2 out of 5 eggsVery fast, odd sound

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Windows, games, everything thats put on the drive boots up insanely fast.

Cons: It emits a strange, high pitched whine whenever a game is putting any kind of stress on the machine. Pause screens and cut scenes are fine, but whenever theres anything moving the disk whines.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for purchasing the Samsung 840 EVO Series SSD, 120GB version.

I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing a strange sound coming from the SSD.

Please contact Samsung Customer Support toll-free at 1-800-SAMSUNG and a representative will gladly assist you. If purchased it brand-new, your unit does come with a three-year manufacturer's warranty.

1 out of 5 eggsFAILED AFTER ONE WEEK!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Light weight

Cons: Doesn't meet promised performance standards. Supplied software doesn't work properly. Doesn't provide any real-time performance improvements. One drive has lasted several months (so far). The other failed within a week.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these drives. The "migration software" doesn't work properly, won't copy more than 3 partitions, takes forever, and times-out in the middle of the copy operation. Used other means of migration. The AHCI drivers supplied do not work with (two different) Asus AMD motherboards! The Samsung Magician cannot find the Samsung SSD if AHCI is enabled! The "OS optimization" results in reduced performance. The Samsung Magician and Crystal Disk Mark both show about 4-5 times the speed of an HDD, BUT there is no noticeable real life improvement.
