5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast! Easy and silent!

Cons: Didn't come with a 3 1/2" HD bracket so I had to use my old Intel drives bracket.

Other Thoughts: I did a fresh install on this drive so I didn't use any drive tools to copy an old drive.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, smooth transfer.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It's a SSD, pretty much everything is right.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The Samsung installed fast, the 'migration' (cloning software) was smooth and everything works like it did on my old 300 GB SSD. One word of caution... If you are installing this as your OS drive, make sure you uninstall any "disk imaging software" first.

5 out of 5 eggsSpeedy

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Some reviewers talk about boot times and app start up times, which are much faster with this SSD than a SATA HDD. Photoshop pops right up, for example. The real eye opener was that I just did a Microsoft Security Essentials Full System Scan which normally takes a few hours, in 20 minutes. (I do have a 4th gen i7 and 32GB RAM, however.) So far works flawlessly.

Cons: THIS DOES NOT COME WITH ANY HARDWARE! That is okay if it is being used as a non-OS replacement. If you need to clone an OS drive, however, you will need the appropriate SATA to USB adapter. I had to wait a couple more days for a second order. No biggy, but if I knew that, I would have purchased them together.

Manufacturer Response:

mgmcd1:

Thank you for purchasing the Samsung 840 EVO Series SSD 500GB model. I am happy to hear that you are pleased with this product.

The SSD you purchased is the basic unit version. Samsung does offer the same model in a Laptop Kit.

Laptop Kit (model MZ-7TE500LW) includes the following additional items: USB 3.0 to SATA Cable and Drive Spacer

5 out of 5 eggsThis is the 500GB SSD you want

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The 840 EVOs are the current price/performance leader. You can buy a much more expensive SSD and not get a lot more performance out of it.

On my i7 4770k, with my main drive being this drive, I boot into Windows in about 10 seconds. It's insane. Games that used to stutter when loading in data (I'm looking at you, Skyrim), no longer do so. It's awesome.

Cons: SSDs are still quite a bit more expensive than regular hard disks, but the performance is absolutely stellar.

For some reason my SATAIII cable didn't want to latch into the port on the SSD. I'm not sure if its the cable, or the SSD itself, but it was mildly annoying.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, you want an SSD in your new system. This one is a good price/size ratio with decent performance and good quality. Why look elsewhere?

5 out of 5 eggsPurchase without Hesitation

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, very fast and cost effective

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I ordered this to replace an existing 128GB SATA II Samsung SSD for a Dell XPS 1645 Laptop (older) w/ Win7 Pro (64-bit) w/8GB DDR3-1333. I did not clock/benchmark this older drive, but I can say it isn't even comparable to the new.

**Make sure to download the latest Samsung Magician software from Samsung site as the new version (4.3 at this time) allows enabling of RAPID mode (version shipped on CD is 4.1).

Below are the benchmarks utilizing Samsung Magician 4.3 (rebooted before each test).

Out of box:
Sequential read: 281 MB/s
Sequential write: 249 MB/s
Random Read (IOPS): 41533
Random Write (IOPS): 41436

After Performance Optimization (Samsung Magician):
Sequential read: 284 MB/s
Sequential write: 271 MB/s
Random Read (IOPS): 43706
Random Write (IOPS): 44510

After Enabling RAPID Mode (Samsung Magician):
Sequential read: 595 MB/s
Sequential write: 323 MB/s
Random Read (IOPS): 43375 (went down)
Random Write (IOPS): 25584 (went down)

The drive is extremely fast considering I am running SATA II system. The included disk cloning/data migration software also worked well as I simply inserted the new drive in my Thermaltake BlacX Duet (ST0014U) (purchased at Newegg )that I connect up via eSATA port and typically use for large data drives/backups.

I would not hesitate to purchase this line of Samsung drives again - and I'm sure I will.

5 out of 5 eggsat last!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Finally a decent boot time! Next day delivery too. Used Norton Ghost to transfer old C: drive without issues.

Cons: none so far apart from the AHCI scare.

Other Thoughts: AHCI makes a big difference in the benchmarks. If you're up to the part where you get a BSODa on boot after changing BIOS to AHCI, have no fear you don't need to reinstall Windows. Set it back to IDE in the BIOS then searching the net you'd find this very useful tip:

1) Run the Registry Editor (regedit.exe)
2) Navigate to Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci
3) Set the "Start" value to 0 (zero)
4) Navigate to Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Pciide
5) Set the "Start" value to 0 (zero)
6) Shut down
7) Start up again, but before Windows boots go into the BIOS configuration screens and change the disk mode to "AHCI". Save the new BIOS configuration and restart so that Windows boots.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Fast

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast boot speed & noticeable difference with boot times on games

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Replaced the HD from my Lenovo Y500 laptop. Super easy to install, no issues recognizing the drive. Should have replaced the drive sooner!

1 out of 5 eggsAfter 4 weeks no longer boots.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I hoped it would work. I hope it would be GREAT!

Cons: I have used the 830 series in the past, was happy. This disk stopped booting after less than a moth - the computer froze first and never booted up again with this SSD. Unfortunately for me Samsung with the 840 EVO joined the junkyard of SSDs along with OCZ.

Samsung Magician no longer recognizes the disk. I'm back to the Hitachi spindle.

Guess the only other reliable SSD company remaining - Intel.

Manufacturer Response:

I am sorry to hear that you have difficulties with your Samsung 840 EVO Series SSD.

If you purchased your unit new, then it has a three-year warranty. Please contact Samsung Customer Support toll-free at 1-800-SAMSUNG and a representative will gladly assist you.
