5 out of 5 eggsNo Complaints

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

Pros: Speeds measure as fast as advertised, and it feels very fast in use. The hardware encryption was important to me and works well. You have to set the hard drive password in the BIOS, after which the password is required whenever the drive is booted. I'd advise researching the way this works for anyone planning to use it. I like the Samsung Magician software for checking drive health and setting some options. Update to the latest version after installing.

Cons: This model does not come with cables or an external enclosure to aid in copying from the system drive. Usable space is shows 465.76GB - a pretty big drop from the advertised 500GB. Prices are coming down, but this is still a luxury item.

Other Thoughts: I did not use the Samsung transfer software, since others have had problems with it, and I had trouble with the version supplied with my other 830 and 840EVO drives. I used the free version of Macrium Reflect, which worked quickly and without issue. Just be sure that the drive or partition you are copying from is the same or smalled sized than the new drive. That's a restriction on Macrium's free version.

3 out of 5 eggsFast SSD

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

Pros: Very fast SSD. Has been working flawlessly so far.

Cons: No mounting bracket or screws came with the SSD. Software is not the best I have seen.

Other Thoughts: I have 2 Intel SSDs that both came with all the hardware needed plus the software is far superior. When I need another SSD I will go back to Intel.

1 out of 5 eggsDrive fried after 6 weeks... buy extended warranty!!!

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

Pros: No advantage over what other drives offer...

Cons: Drive installed as it was supposed to, ran well for 6 weeks. The upon POST, Bios stated drive, "FAILED".

Tried to get RMA from Newegg, because it was over 30 days Newegg stated no RMA would be issued. Did search on Samsung drive warranty on Google, good luck with that. Cannot find a link to Samsung at all, was always pointed to a third party company. If you use the Samsung number provided here on Newegg, you will be again directed to a third party company if dealing with a solid state drive. See other complaints with respect to Samsung service.

Do yourself a favor and buy another product or at least buy the extended warranty thru Newegg - dealing with Samsung is impossible; the jury is still out on the third party company taking care of the bad Samsung drives...

Other Thoughts: Thought Newegg would have better service than what I experianced... very disappointed.

4 out of 5 eggsawesome Hardware --terrible software

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

Pros: The actual hard drive is working like a champ for me --start up speeds and file acces is screaming fast.

Cons: The software provided by samsung to install drivers and to do data migration was unacceptable. The drivers did not work for my system ...but windows downloaded a good one. It also did not come with a USB to PCI cable so i went to best buy and bought one. I used the samsung data migration tool--this software did not work and windows would not start , i used the software that came with the USb to PCI cable and it went perfectly (and faster)

5 out of 5 eggsSolid state drives are amazing

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

Pros: Amazing speed, fan doesn't come on, battery life seems longer. Easy to install on my Macbook Pro Late 2011 15".

Cons: When I need to use my work computer I am now very impatient since the speed on my personal laptop has spoiled me in only a week. No more disc hard drives for me.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

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

Pros: I ordered around 6pm and it came the next day at 3pm.

Drive is fast, although I thought the write speed would be a bit faster.

Software was pretty straightforward, although it is annoying that keeps telling me that the drive should be running faster.

Cons: Is expensive (wait for it to come on sale), and you have to install it yourself. It can be a pain in some laptops.

Other Thoughts: In a Toshiba Satellite P-50B

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Fast

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

Pros: - silent,
- fast,
- super small (that's what she said),
- reliable and
- actually good useful software (drive clone) came with it. Plugged it in and worked right away. Used the clone a drive feature to be up in minutes. Yay!

Cons: Does not come with a Unicorn, so none.

Other Thoughts: With Samsung Magician you can also optimize the drive (and Windows) soo that's pretty neat. It allowed me to clone my OS from my old drive to this one! This way I didn't have to install everything again and was back up in no time.

This drive came with the Radeon R9 295x2 which was $1500 (so with this drive costing 349.99, it didnt hurt that bad) I think I got a good deal!
