5 out of 5 eggs2x weeks going strong

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s 1x nm Samsung Toggle DDR 2.0 3-Bit MLC NAND Flash Memory (400Mbps) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Sustained read/write was testing at 300MB/s with HDTune with the OS put on it, when booting seperate drive I can touch 400MB/s but idle around 380MB/s which is much better than the 160MB/s i was getting with my Western Digital Hard Disc Drive. OS installed in under 5 minutes, programs install almost instantly, very happy so far.

Cons: didn't come with a 2.5" to 3.5" converter for desktop (most SSD don't though)

Other Thoughts: Have had bad luck with SSD in past, 2 out of 5 drives will stop working, always within warranty period but still it takes time to RMA a drive. Performance is always there for the SSD i've bought but for some reason the SSD market is unstable, hopefully this Samsung will give me a few years.

5 out of 5 eggsSmoking Fast SSD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s 1x nm Samsung Toggle DDR 2.0 3-Bit MLC NAND Flash Memory (400Mbps) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Super Fast, great value

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is one super fast SSD. My benchmarks with CrystalDiskMark 2.2 were very close to the manufacturers specs and easily make it the fastest SSD of the seven I own. I highly recommend this if your looking to pick up some speed on your beast or to revive that tired PC with a conventional boot drive.

5 out of 5 eggsBlazing Fast Start-up & Loading Times

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s 1x nm Samsung Toggle DDR 2.0 3-Bit MLC NAND Flash Memory (400Mbps) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I purchased this SSD after reading reviews on the improved access time for files/games and quicker boot times.

Installation was very simple (be sure to purchase the 2.5"->3.5" mounting bracket if your case does not have a 2.5in slot (most do not))

To make the process simpler for myself, I removed my old hard drive and installed only this SSD. Then I installed Windows 8 using the disk. After install, I timed my start-up. 14 seconds on a custom built rig. (Down from nearly a minute) My jaw dropped.

I powered the PC down and reinstalled the old hard drive (which still had windows 7 and all of my games, files, etc.) The next start-up I was able to select the primary drive which is this SSD. The old HDD can still be accessed and all of your data is still available. I copied some of my most played games over to the SSD and noticed a significant improvement in launch/load times.

One of the best purchases I have made for my desktop.

Cons: To be completely honest, I don't have any cons about this product. I would recommend buying something larger than you need, because once you see the difference in loading times you will want to save EVERYTHING to your SSD!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s 1x nm Samsung Toggle DDR 2.0 3-Bit MLC NAND Flash Memory (400Mbps) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Buckle up as your machine will fly after this baby is installed!!

Cons: Haven't had any so far to be honest

Other Thoughts: I was hesitant to buy this product but my MacBook Pro hard drive was occasionally clicking so I knew its death is coming soon and I had to act quickly. I researched online and found this one to be most effective in terms of size and cost at the time of purchase... Maybe it's cheaper now I don't know.

Anyways, used Carbon Copy to copy my old Mac HDD into this one and then booted my Mac... Guys no joke my Mac used to take about 1.5 minutes to boot to desktop... With this drive it boots in about 30 seconds and I have several gigs of data on the desktop and literally no more space to drop a file or icon. This HDD will make wonders and you will not regret spending the money.... In all cases, it is better than a mechanical drive... Period.

5 out of 5 eggsIt lives up to its reputation

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s 1x nm Samsung Toggle DDR 2.0 3-Bit MLC NAND Flash Memory (400Mbps) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: perfect for a netbook! I replaced the 5400 rpm hard drive in my ACER ONE netbook. And found it doubled my speed. The specs imply that it can much more than double the speed, but this netbook has a somewhat slow processor. There's only so much that a hard drive can do. But a 3 1/2 minute boot seems fast compared to a 7 minute boot. Applications experience a similar speed up. Also, remember that for a battery powered device like a netbook, this uses much less power. You get more run time on your battery.

Cons: None, really... a hard drive costs less, but the cost is justified by the performance.

Other Thoughts: This device comes with absolutely painless software to move the contents of your hard drive to the SSD.

5 out of 5 eggsFabulious SSD - Great Newegg Service

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s 1x nm Samsung Toggle DDR 2.0 3-Bit MLC NAND Flash Memory (400Mbps) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Purchased SSD for work friend / college student . I talked him into this SSD upgrade instead of replacing his 3 year old entry level Asus laptop ... which would have been a difficult on his going to school budget. Unfortunately SSD arrived DOA (SSD could not be seen during BIOS load). Fortunately Newegg's RMA process worked flawless, including Shoprunner FREE return / re-ship costing. Lost another day (doing upgrade at work) when USB3 external drive caddy hit a driver issue with Samsung Migration / Cloning program. Next day brought in my USB2 external drive caddy and Samsung Cloning program worked perfect. First Boot-up with SSD in was 23 seconds ... replaced HDD took almost 3 minutes .. college friend could not stop smiling. Not only did laptop boot-up exceptionally fast, he does not have to replace his 3 year laptop. He said it was the best $104 he every spent.

Cons: Samsung Migration / Cloning program had driver issue with my USB3 external drive caddy. Would be nice if Samsung cloning program could use / select driver / give user option to use Windows 7 loaded driver since the USB3 external caddy worked flawless when performing straight-up w7 connection / reading / writing requests ... yet the Samsung Migration / Cloning program could not see the attached USB3 caddy. We discovered this issue when looking in the Samsung Support forums. With USB3 connection ports common with many computers, may lead some end users with this issue sending SSD for unnecessary RMA.

Other Thoughts: Even with the DOA / RMA and USB3 / Driver issue the ending performance of this SSD made it all worth it .. which is why I gave it a 5 star. Samsung and Newegg supported it all the way to a happy / successful upgrade.
