3 out of 5 eggsNot as fast as I had hoped.

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

Pros: Small and lightweight.
Minimal improvement over my spinners.

Cons: Maybe it cut 10 seconds off my boot times, but once Windows 8.1 is loaded I do not notice any change in performance at all.
In fact, since the software recommended I turn off some features, indexing being one of them, that could harm the drive, now if I have to search for a file or folder, it takes 3-4 times as long to run a search.

Other Thoughts: From all the hype of these devices I had hoped for more, perhaps this P67 chipset doesn't work well with the SSDs.
I installed a different branded SSD into my son's Z68 chipset and his boots way faster and he is very happy with the speed boost, on mine, hardly a difference. YMMV

5 out of 5 eggsMakes a nice game/game development drive.

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

Cons: The 850 EVO came out a month later featuring the new 3D-VNAND...

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this to anyone. Seriously, this is a wonderful drive!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome SSD

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

Pros: Working really great on my Toshiba laptop.

Cons: Software takes a while to understand all the options.

Other Thoughts: Warning: I put my laptop into massive high speed mode. for some reason, it did not work well.

I then put the laptop into optimal mode, that worked.

5 out of 5 eggsBought 2 - RAID0

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

Pros: Bought 2 and configured them in a RAID 0 array- Achieved 980MB/s Read and 960MB/s Write all day long. Even saw it exceed 1GB/s during a benchmark (not sustained). Load up times on some apps is near instantaneous.

Cons: Have to flash the firmware on the drives to make sure they're up to date...not a real biggie. Just follow the directions on the Samsung site. If you are going to put these in a RAID array, making sure the firmware is current is a must!!!

Other Thoughts: Best drives I've ever owned.

5 out of 5 eggsLook no further

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

Pros: Fast, smoking fast. I got the 500GB version and it's plenty big for OS plus games and other software

Cons: Firmware wasn't update out of the box? I'm really digging here.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you update the firmware ASAP. Without the new firmware you'll get DPC_WATCHDOG blue screens on Win 8 or better

Cons: No cons whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: It's an awesome SSD for the price, it's fast, reliable, and does whatever is required of it.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

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

Pros: Bought one as my primary OS drive. Liked it so much I bought another to use as a second drive. Second one runs much slower than first but don't really care since I just save files than don't require speed. Also rapid only works on the primary drive (warns you ahead of time). Still a lot faster than mechanical.

Cons: Second one i purchased quite a bit slower than first but not a big deal since it's my backup drive.

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: Small, fast, quiet, reliable, Samsung, everything you could ask for

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Honestly I was skeptical at first when my buddy told me to buy a Samsung SSD after telling me how awesome his was. I gave it a shot and I was NOT disappointed in the slightest. My boot-up time is right around 10-15 seconds and everything you can ask out of it is lightning quick. I will definitely be buying more of these in the future, Samsung does it again!

5 out of 5 eggsA fast SSD

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

Pros: We have now bought 3 of these Samsung 840 EVO SSDs: 2 in home-built desktops and 1 in a Lenovo laptop. The 1 desktop (Intel Core i5) and the laptop (Intel Core i7) are blazingly fast with their SSD. It is amazing how fast they boot and all operations are just really quick.

Cons: Unfortunately the 2nd desktop (an old Core 2 duo), didn't show a whole lot of improvement. Although the disk benchmark times look good on it, the system just feels slower than the other systems. Obviously, it has less CPU horsepower than our other two systems, but simple things like opening programs didn't improve much compared to the old hard drive that used to be in it.
