1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Customer 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: Low cost/GB (at time of purchase).

Cons: TLC NAND bug where the drive read/write speed gets lower, despite fixes given by Samsung.

Other Thoughts: Samsung is such a big company it really does not care about customers, or any after service. Despite the issue, after calling their support desk, they tell me to wait for the firmware. One particularly arrogant SSD representative told me it would be a "fruitless effort" to try to get a replacement unit or refund.

I am never buying an SSD product from Samsung again.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well and reliable

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: Good speed with no down time as of yet. I had bought two of these back in May of 2014. Both drives work great as boot drives with some additional space for key programs. Overall I am very satisfied. Probably a bigger upgrade to my PC than my CPU was.

Cons: The Magician software can be finicky at times, but nothing to merit a reduction in score. Especially due to how overall useful the software is, and how you actually don't need to use it if you choose not to.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you switch the drive to ACHI mode in bios before you install your OS. Switching afterwards will cause you to blue screen.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks prefectly

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: Works as stated with 0 problems relating to the SSD.
Going from HDD to SSD makes life way easier and this SSD is a good start if you've never had one before. It will change your life and with the cost of this one it makes buying one very simple

Cons: none so far.

5 out of 5 eggsBoots Very Fast

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 SSD drive gives a whole new experience in computing. I use it as my boot drive and it boots completely in about 40 seconds or a little less.

Cons: The only con is that the documentation assumes you are using it in a lap top computer and the instructions are very basic. For a desk top It doesn't tell you that all you have to do is connect up the SATA cables and run the migration software. It doesn't tell you that you will probably have to go into your BIOS and change the boot order after the migration. I did not take an egg away for the documentation because it doesn't take away from the actual operation of the item.

Other Thoughts: I'm not a gamer, so I can't comment on how it will improve that environment, although most gaming cases now come with several dedicated SSD slots. I keep all my system and application files and some app data on this drive, the rest I off load to a regular mechanical hard drive. Apps open very fast. The bench mark test I've ran so far have it a little faster that the published specs.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy Owner

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: As with all SSD's, it is fast and quiet

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I have only had this drive a month, but so far it has been amazingly fast and has given me no problems. Obviously time will tell how this all plays out, but so far, so good. I would buy another, except I would likely get the new 3D version just for fun...

FWIW, reading all the reviews of SSD's this one came in right near the top, so I felt kind of good about that.

Pros: This is the first Solid State Drive I've purchased, and it is exceptional. I've installed all every-day applications(anti-virus, etc) and Windows system files to this drive, and it's hard not to notice the instantaneous speed this drive offers.

Cons: None. Durable and easy to install.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

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: -Unreal boost in performance. I'm running an old AMD Athalon 64 x2 processor with 12gb of RAM and this old PC is flying. PC and software boot instantly.

-Samsung cloning software worked perfect. Was able to get my new SSD running with my old HDD clone in less than an hour.

Cons: No SATA Cable. Not really a big deal.

3 out of 5 eggsBought 2 of these, one has slowed down

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 bought two of these to use as OS/application drives: one on a desktop media server, the other a 3 year old Toshiba laptop. Initially, both drives were very fast and cut boot times dramatically and generally sped up Windows 7.

Cons: After a few months, the drive I had in my laptop slowed down. I searched the interwebs and found that Samsung had a software fix for this. I downloaded and applied the fix and it sped things up quite a bit from where it had bottomed out, but it may not be quite as fast as it was when it was new. The other drive in the desktop media server machine has not slowed down at all, but it is used very little for applications and stays on 24/7, and it does not see the daily load and use of the drive in the laptop.
