3 out of 5 eggsBetter since update

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: Really Fast...at first. great software for cloning existing drive means you don't have to skip a beat to upgrade your system

Cons: Suffered from initial speed degradation from files not being used, experienced this on my HTPC

Other Thoughts: the only flaw was fixed with a firware update, but still something to take into consideration

5 out of 5 eggsSSD's - The breath of life

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 price point for size.
Seamless install.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Replace your OS HD with and SSD and you give it another couple of years of life. It's like a processor upgrade but wayyyy easier. You'll need cloning software, but you should have it and run recovery images all the time anyway.

1 out of 5 eggsRead Speed Slowdowns

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 when new.

Cons: There is a flaw in the TLC nand flash memory on these drives that causes the read speeds of old data to degrade to HDD levels after 8-12 weeks. People don't realize it because when you run a normal benchmark, most benchmarking programs create a fresh set of files to test against. So everything looks hunky dory. Problem is, your Windows or other OS files are written once when you install it, and as that old data ages the flash memory cell voltage drifts. The onboard controller cannot read the older data accurately and it causes it to slow way down. Do a search for a program that can read and benchmark older data, or all of the data on the drive and you will see what I mean. The manufacturer did a firmware update in October to correct this but it didn't work for a LOT of people. They are promising another update soon but people suspect it will be a bandaid to a flawed hardware design. I have two of these 250s and several other sizes with the problem. This manufacturer is trying to sweep this under the rug. The TLC memory in these drives is the problem. I would not recommend these.

Other Thoughts: Don't plan on using these in any kind of RAID either. Their magician software does not recognize drives in RAID so you're out of luck when trying the firmware updates that these drives will constantly need. You have to break and rebuild arrays to constantly refresh old data. Their is a petition to have these drives recalled.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy install. Quick boots.

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: Plugged it in and it booted right up. Had some trouble installing OSes, but that's because I botched the partitioning rather than anything with the hardware.

I haven't timed it, but I'll bet Windows 7 boots up in < 15 seconds.

Cons: None so far.

1 out of 5 eggsShort Timer

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: Inexpensive drive installed easily and ran very fast for about 8 months. The drive is still running and usable....

Cons: Performance has plummeted after about 8 months. The Samsung firmware fix from October 2014 was not a fix at all, but a temporary patch.

Other Thoughts: I make my living integrating computer systems. There is a major engineering flaw in the EVO 840 series of SSDs. I wonder if Samsung will offer some sort of rebate or credit to people that purchased these drives. Time will tell....

4 out of 5 eggsJust what I expected.

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 is my first SSD, I know I like Samsung products, and my friend got the same drive. I received package undamaged, the box that the box came in was even in good condition. The package got treated with respect all along the way.

Cons: "Shipped from over-seas" so it took awhile to get here.

5 out of 5 eggsLike lightning

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: If you do not have one of these lightning fast drives then you are missing out. For a while I could not justify spending a lot on a hard disk and I am glad I did take that leap. I have not had this more than a week so not much to report other than the speed.

Cons: None so far
