4 out of 5 eggsAmazing

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

Pros: Amazingly fast. I bought two of them on the Black Friday sale, and have never looked back.

I previously had two Agility III's in Raid for steam/Battle.net however I was running out of room. This fixed that problem. I left the Agility's on their own raid and added a new raid for these bad boys that gave me 931GB after format. Not the best but it is plenty for the time being.

I also received 2x Far Cry 4 game vouchers. That alone pushed me to get these rather than just a new 4 TB HDD.

Cons: So far my only con is the Samsung Magician does NOT work while in raid. Not sure if I was suppose to set up the raid with the supplied software or not. However a little to late to loose all of the data already on the drives.

Other Thoughts: Solid performance. I started playing WoW with the release of WoD. It was installed on my HDD due to the fact steam was taking over my other SSD raid of 214GB. I missed the faster loading times, and like I said previously I received two copies of Far Cry 4 due to buying two drives.

I would highly recommend these SSD's if they are on sale again. HIGH capacity at a low cost. Sure not the 850's or even the Pro's but for gaming or running programs like Photoshop,3Dmax, Vegas, etc you will be more than happy with the results.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

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

Pros: QUIET!!!, Speed is mind numbing when paired with SATA III cable, and optimized for performance. Windows and games load crazy fast. Upgraded from WD Velociraptor to this drive and haven't been disappointed. $189 Black Friday sale, $5 for a bracket, and $5 for the cable to do the data transfer with the included software all money well spent. One of the simplest, pain free, and effective upgrades I've done.

Cons: Won't pour me a drink no matter how nice I ask

Other Thoughts: If you have been considering going the SSD route and are looking at this one, just do it.

1 out of 5 eggsCan not mount partitions occasionally

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

Pros: Very slim, so it fits in my laptop. Drive began working again for a period, so I was able to wipe unencrypted data in anticipation of returning the drive. Speeds as fast as expected for an SSD.

Cons: Drive is defective in an unusual way. After two months of excellent performance, I couldn't boot my laptop from the drive, so I put it in a USB enclosure to test. Partitions are visible, but I can not mount them using my laptop or desktop. I can write to the drive directly using "dd", but mounting partitions sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, even after a complete reinstall. The only other SSD failure I've had was totally inaccessible suddenly, so I guess this is not all bad.

Other Thoughts: Given the reviews for this device, I suppose I am unlucky. I'm only giving this a low score because of the frustration-- all the other SSDs I own are thicker OCZs which don't fit in my laptop, so I have to wait for a replacement, or, more likely, buy another shipped same day from you know who. I'm hating myself for not having a backup slim drive when my vacation is nearing.

5 out of 5 eggsSamsung SSD

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

Pros: I've had great luck (knock on wood, LOL) with Samsung brand SSDs so when I decided to up grade I just bought a larger capacity one :)

Cons: none (did not use included soft ware - copped out and had a brick and mortar store do the ghost over)

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

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

Pros: Extremely fast, as long as you have enough hardware to support the reading speeds of this SSD. You will be amazed! 3570K-4.5Ghz, 16GB-1600Mhz, GTX-760-SLI and this SSD makes a crazy fast PC

Cons: Don't come with SATAIII cable and 2.5" to 3.5" adapter!

Other Thoughts: if you have the money, you should buy 2 and RAID0 it... that would be fun :D

5 out of 5 eggsSUPER FAST DRIVE!!!!

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

Pros: Requirement: SATA 3.0 slot

With the Samsung software, I benchmark transfer rate to 420 MB/s! Very fast compared to a 7200 RPM @ 170 MB/s. Ran a optimization with the software and tested benchmark with a 5 MB slow transfer rate =(. Disappointed..... I noticed the RAPID feature.... enabled the RAPID feature which required a reboot. After reboot... benchmarked again and transfer rate was 4200+MB/s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOW! Beyond satisfied. Ran some video rendering/export and it doesn't even utilize up to 1% transfer rate!

The drive is super light! I wasn't sure if it was a real SSD drive or a fake. LOL

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My build...
MSI X99S Gaming 7
Intel i7 5820k OC 4.4 GHz idle 47c ~ 76c max load
Corsair H100i
G.Skill Rip Jaws 16 GB 2800 MHz 4x4 (OC to 2666 MHz)
EVGA SuperNova 850 Watt Bronze Modular
Cooler Master HAF 932 Black Edition
Samsung EVO 500 GB SSD
Western Digital 3TB Black
Current GPU: Nvidia Geforce 680 GTX 4GB (won't upgrade till another few years)
