5 out of 5 eggsBest SSD Money Can Buy

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

Pros: -Fast read/write speeds
-Good lifetime expectancy
-Fair price

Cons: -Had to mess with files so that I could keep my 1TB HDD to use in unison with it

Other Thoughts: This SSD is probably the best SSD you can buy. If you're going to buy a 500GB SSD, buy this one.

5 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: Recently built 3 PCs for some friends and family all using these drives. This drive paired with a 4th Gen I3 and 8 gig of memory make for a fantastic user experience for day to day computer use. Won't get top fps in the latest games but everything else loads lightening quick.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsFast & Stable

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

Pros: Boots and loads start-up programs extremely fast compared to 5400rpm hdd. Gives the laptop a "tablet feel" in its responsiveness. All programs load noticeably faster, install faster, etc.

Basically, it does everything an SSD should do in a laptop.

The price was good ($240 for 500g), but it wasn't the cheapest of the 500g SSDs.

Cons: longevity uncertain.

Other Thoughts: I only bought one of these from Newegg, but I have the exact same model in a white box laptop with all the latest bells and whistles.

The SSD that was used as an upgrade was cloned via USB2 port to eSATA using EZ Gig 2 software. I used the bootable CD-ROM. The whole copy process took about an hour. The source drive was 750g with around 250g of data. So it took a while (USB2 limitation on the MB).

All in all, I'm very happy with this product. My 3-year old laptop has new life. It blows current i5-based systems out of the water (it's an older i7).

5 out of 5 eggsSmooth Install!

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

Pros: Imaging SW that came with the SSD was excellent! Drive performance is great. Tools for SSD management also well done.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The cloning expects you to connect the SSD to a USB to SATA jig and clone with the SSD outside the PC. I did not have that interface (SATA to USB) so just connected the SSD to an unused SATA port on the MB for the cloning. It worked great.

1 out of 5 eggsread speed bug!

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

Pros: initially fast

Cons: READ SPEED BUG!

my drive, and many others, have a problem with reading old files on disk, in older sectors my read speeds show less than 10 MB/s !!! ridiculous! I tried to email samsung support for this product but their email drop downs are disabled on all browsers (firefox, chrome, IE)!

I would be EXTREMELY WARY of buying right now, until a fix is pushed to the end users.

1 out of 5 eggsRead speeds less than HD on old files

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

Pros: Initially a very fast drive. A highly recommended SSD from a "trusted" manufacturer.

Cons: Read performance severely degrades the longer data is on the drive. Files that are a month or older have read speeds around 40-50 MB/s. If you perform a test using free space or new files read speeds are 400 or greater.

I would return this, if not for being 1 day beyond my 30 day window. I find it deplorable that Samsung has yet to acknowledge this issue. They are essentially calling everyone that calls to report the problem stupid, saying that there is no real world performance loss. Read speeds below 100 are unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: I hope that Samsung has the courtesy to acknowledge this issue and correct it with firmware if possible.
