5 out of 5 eggsSuperfast Drive - Superslow delivery

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

Pros: Upon arrival I will probably love this drive. I was hoping to use the Labor day extended weekend to install and move all my app's over to this wonderful new drive. However due to some programming error in newegg's customer service code, I won't receive until after 9/2... why they waited two days to initiate replacement must be due to bad logic.

Cons: Ordered and Invoiced on 8/21
Received damaged in shipment notification 8/25
Replacement Claim issued 8/25 (so far so good)
Claim Resolved & Approved 8/26 (ok so if they ship today I should be good)
Tracking notification received 8/27 (not looking so good)
Tracking update - scheduled delivery 9/2 (sigh...)

Other Thoughts: So ok, I selected Super Eggsaver delivery because I thought I had plenty of time for expected delivery. However I also expected an expedited shipment for replacement. How silly of me. I probably won't be using Super Eggsucker in the future. If I use newegg at all.

5 out of 5 eggsCloned Main OS, Easy Setup, SO FAST

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

Pros: The drive is small. Fast. It's amazing how much faster I can edit images. We're talking 12 images blended into a High Dynamic Range image, from a 35 MP camera. Huge 50 MB files. The built in software on the included CD is great it updated immediately and cloned my old OS within 2 hours.

Cons: USPS

Other Thoughts: I wish I would have done this upgrade sooner. The ability to edit this quickly saves me time that I can use to finish other projects.

5 out of 5 eggsCloned Perfectly - Took 30 Minutes

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

Pros: The included software is unbelievable. First, it walks you through cloning the drive, so you clone it. Then unplug the old drive & plug this one in place, then turn the computer back on. Done! System restarted every single piece of software is still working, and I didn't have to enter a single key code!! Plus, my system tests through the roof :):) Very happy with this purchase.

Cons: NewEgg told me that after spending thousands with them over the last year or 2 that if I did purchase the wrong drive, they would not allow me to exchange it for the right drive. I was very disappointed NewEgg would treat me like that after I make them my first choice in electronics. But the drive is awesome, and so is Samsung customer service if you need tech support 866-726-4249

Other Thoughts: *see above

5 out of 5 eggsZoom zoom

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

Pros: Wow, this drive is fast. I have a recording studio computer that was not reaching its potential because of a slow-ish boot drive. The 840 EVO:

* raised the Windows Experience score for the drive from 5.9 to 7.9.

* dropped Win7 Pro boot time (after POST) from 50 sec to 19 sec.

* dropped the launch time for a program that indexes thousands of external files on load from 40 sec to 4 sec.

Samsung also includes software to help you optimize your Windows settings to take advantage of the drive's performance.

Cons: The included drive migration software didn't work for me, but I think that was due to my older USB-to-SATA adapter cable. I installed the EVO internally and restored a Macrium image of the boot drive to it, which worked perfectly.

(I know, clean install is better; but this machine has a complex configuration and numerous copy-protected audio programs that must be de-authorized and re-authorized. A clean install would have been a two-day ordeal.)

Other Thoughts: If you're installing this in a desktop PC, make sure you order an adapter to mount the drive to a 3.5" bay. I got the Rosewill plastic mounting kit, which was fine.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD for the price

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

Pros: I use this for games as I have an 840 pro for os/programs use and honestly can't tell much of a difference in the two in daily usage. You can afford alot of memory for the price of this compared to traditional SSD. Great for any gaming pc.

Cons: None really, Samsung makes great SSD's especially in the 840 and upcoming 850 series. Which would be my only con. If you don't have one wait til the newer series comes up for even more of a boost :)

Other Thoughts: Combine this with 840 pro and you have yourself a killer system when it comes to memory.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat speed/capcity for the price

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

Pros: Very fast
Large capacity
samsung magician software

Cons: TLC and not MLC
No mounting screws, brackets or anything came with the drive.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive for my laptop which is 6 years old hoping to pump a little more life into it. The installation was easy although this drive did not come with any screws or mounting plates. Luckily I had some laying around and just popped it into my laptop. Despite my laptop only supporting SATA II it provides a very noticible difference. I was getting data transfer speeds around 250MB/s which is just under the theoretical 300 of SATA II.

The software provided made optimizing my system for SSD real easy coming from an HDD drive. Samsung magician simplifies everything and even gives you some benchmarks. I did not use the included data transfer software so I cannot speak for its value. I used acronis true image and was able to copy my drive image of 250GB in less than 20 minutes off my USB drive onto the SSD. Obviously this is inhibited by the USB2.0 speed so thats no fault of the SSD.

Samsung RAPID technology is also a bonus with this drive as it does substantially enhance the data throughput by intelligent caching in a manner similar to windows prefetch. RAPID however does commandeer up to 1GB of system ram in order to work since system ram has a higher throughput than an SATA controller hence the reason you can get speeds exceeding the rating of the SATA controller. RAPID will also scale its memory usage back dynamically as the demand on the system increases and has the ability to go transparent if the system is heavily under load.

This drive was made with newer TLC flash memory as opposed to MLC, however, I have yet to really see any major differences in my day to day usage.

All in all this drive is performing quite well and I am pleased with the investment. I made a night and day difference on my 6 year old laptop and the sata II controller does not restrict this drive in day to day usage. The controller bottleneck would probably only be apparent if I was benchmarking and really trying to make it noticible. But for every day use, this drive will knock any HDD out of the ball park. Most 500GB SSDs are a bit expensive, but this one comes in at a reasonable price tag and with the promo code I had I got it for $212 which you just cant beat for an SSD at this capacity. The normal price of this drive is probably what I paid for my 256gb OCZ vector so at $212 dollars, this drive was FAR worth the investment.

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.

Manufacturer Response:

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
