2 out of 5 eggsWorks Great, Until it Dosen't

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: Speed, ease of installation, good diagnostic tools

Cons: Dies one month after warranty expires.

Other Thoughts: I have never had a major component barely last a year on me; I still have 15 year old SCSI drives that work. I thought Samsung built a reliable drive...not so much.

3 out of 5 eggsFailed in 6 month

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: Fast in the beginning of installation

Cons: 1) Unreliable, failed in 6 months.
2)Gradually loses performance but a Samsung speed restoration utility doesn't work in case you have those drives in RAID configuration.
Samsung Magician utility also does not recognize drives in RAID and therefore is useless.

Other Thoughts: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series though is a bit slower, is cheaper and still works without problems. Also it seems there is no performance drop on this drive.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked great right out of the box

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: light weight, attractive, easy to install and high performance

Cons: Very delicate sata and power connectors. As long the other SSD's, you need to be very careful connecting/disconnecting the SATA connectors as if you bend them too much the connectors will break off. Luckily this did not happen.

Other Thoughts: I've only had this for three weeks now and it is working great. I understand there is a high failure rate with the low cost SSD's. That seems to be the biggest gripe. I decided to purchase this because the price seemed reasonable. So far it has been working great. My computer boots from off to fully booted in Windows 8.1 in approximately 10 -12 seconds.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

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: Greatly increased the performance of my desktop coming from 3x RAID 0 VelociRaptors.
Works perfectly with no issues at all.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: It's hard to compare SSD's without going into benchmarks and stress testing. But I have used other brands of SSD's that would simply stop working or have other issues.

This one I have been using for months with no issues whatsoever. All other Samsung EVO SSD's I have used have had similar success.

4 out of 5 eggsProgram drive in Laptop

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: -Improved battery life
-Programs like Adobe after effects, Photoshop, and Premier Pro open in seconds even when they haven't been opened in months.
-Boots in seconds even from hibernate mode.

Cons: -Required Maintenance. (see other thoughts)
-Trouble installing: Used included Magician software to transfer Windows from previous hard drive but software did a poor transfer and windows would crash very easily. After several tries without a clean install I bought a flash-drive and made it into an emergency backup with Toshiba's program on my old drive then used my laptop's backup repair function to repair Samsung's buggy transferred Windows

Other Thoughts: -Noticed the slow read speeds on older data but by the time I noticed it was only a few weeks until Samsung released the patch which was fairly easy to download and install.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked good and then crashed... dead.

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: This drive worked great as my Windows 8.1 x64 OS drive. I didn't really notice any slowdown as people have described occurring over time. Though I never really tested it. It always booted up super-fast, within seconds. Tho that's also a feature of my motherboard.

Unfortunately after about 15 months of usage Windows just froze. My mouse and cursor still worked but all application windows were stuck. After 30 minutes, no change. I did a hard reboot and got the "MBR Error 1" and the drive was never recognized by my BIOS again.

Tried swapping into different computers just to detect/test it, nothing.

Cons: I may have just received a bad one as most people are having good luck with this drive (at least according to reviews). Samsung is sending a replacement as I'm still well inside of the three-year warranty period.

I keep all personal files off my OS drive, but I did lose some files I had on my desktop unfortunately.

Other Thoughts: Just thought I'd share.
