5 out of 5 eggsThe gold standard

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

Pros: I can’t indicate it on this review form but I between personal and work purchasing I have probably bought around 20 of these, they are that good. I could leave it at that but will expand on why.

First, speed. These drives may not be the very fastest of the SSDs, but they are so close that everyone but the most extreme power user is not going to notice anything besides “Wow it’s like I have a new computer!” These hold up very well in speed tests and that is the name of the game for SSDs.

Second, reliability. Samsung does not mess around with its SSDs. Other manufacturers have sometimes used second rate controllers and memory to make their entry level drives, which can hurt their performance and lead to sudden failures. Not Samsung, they just do it by the book. Like I said I have purchased about 20 of these and have not had any failures with many of them being in use for over a year. I can not say that for all the drives I’ve used from other manufacturers.

Third, price. The price on these is just ridiculous, and they are easily dollar for dollar the best upgrade you can make to a PC. As the IT pro in the family I get stuck working on a lot of relatives and friends computers, and replacing an aging spinner with one of these is my go to move.

For instance my folks have an old core 2 duo based desktop that does what they need, but the old drive was SLOOOOOOWWWWWW. A fresh install of Windows 7 and a 120GB 840 SSD later and they can finally use their computer again. Boot times went from around 2 minutes to about 25 seconds.

Cons: 120 GB can fill up faster than you think. This is not a real con because you can just buy a bigger drive for not much more, but I had to come up with something.

Other Thoughts: If you aren’t doing anything processor intensive you don’t need a new computer, you need an SSD and this is a great choice. Hard drive speed is usually the bottleneck for most applications, so buy a Samsung SSD and let her rip.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

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

Pros: You cannot beat Samsung for SSD's.

I installed this in a older system. Win 7 Pro 64 bit, Intel Core 2 Quad 9300 2.5ghz and 8Gb of DDR3 1333Mhz RAM. 2TB Seagate HDD backing it up for data storage.

I didn't do a benchmark but the performance improvement was drastic. Boot time was cut by at least 75%. Windows Experience Index shot through the roof on everything.

Cons: Not really a Con so to speak, but it was necessary with the older system, to download a specific driver from Samsung.

Other Thoughts: Just bought another for a old dell e6410 laptop I have. Looking forward to the performance boost there as well!

4 out of 5 eggsStellar boot times

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

Pros: Going from a pure HDD build to this SSD is an amazing difference. My boot up times are blazing fast, and write speeds are extremely satisfying.

Cons: The reason I only gave 4 stars is because the software that Samsung packages was giving me memory leak problems, and was not worth the headache it provided.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

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

Pros: Excellent for the price! The software included is simply the best on the market (Samsung Data Migration and Samsung Magician) and help a lot configuring the OS for SSD usage. I am using it with MSI Fast Boot and I get into Windows Desktop in 15 seconds!

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: It was easy to install: just plug it in and clone your old drive.

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed

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

Pros: I bought this SSD because I needed my Adobe software to load up faster. (Newegg was having another sale) I installed the SSD and loaded my programs on and i'm having no issues with it at all. Everything loads up fast, nothing more I can say.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsNot terribly disappointed.

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

Pros: It works. It's sorta faster than a HDD.

Cons: Not up to rated speeds. About 360mb/s Seq Read, and 220mb/s Seq Write, with maximum IOPS of 59k Read, and 23k Write. Still quite the delay that's not to be expected when opening programs.

Other Thoughts: Along with the speed not quite being up to par on benchmarks, this thing is much slower than my previous SSD. I'm managing to get to my desktop with everything fully loaded at about a minute or more, and that's right after a clean Windows install. My old Zalman N-Series was capable of getting me to the desktop in 16 seconds flat, with all my programs loaded (8 seconds on clean install) with an outdated machine! In all actuality, this thing is about as fast as a 2 HDD raid setup running with no page file.

I know this isn't the typical situation for most, which is why I'm still giving it 4 eggs. Also to the point that I'm probably doing something wrong, which is usually the case.

TRIM's on, AHCI mode, not on ASMedia Controller, connected to SATA3 port, 200mb pagefile, probably other things I've forgotten. I'll live with it, not like it's THAT hindering.
