1 out of 5 eggsDON'T BUY IT!

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

Pros: Incredibly fast for those first two months you own it. After that, you're going to have to run the Samsung Performance Restoration tool every two or three months to restore its speed.

Cons: Don't buy it! The 840 EVO series is plagued with performance issues that aren't present in the 850 line. You can Google about it if you don't believe me. There's even a petition for Samsung to do something. When this issue was discovered, Samsung promptly released a tool called "Samsung Performance Restoration" and I thought it fixed my issue. But after two months, the issue popped up again for everyone and Samsung announced that they're working on it and I'm still waiting for an update with that. And since I bought two of these and have them setup at RAID0, you have to break/disable your RAID and then run the tool (DOS version only if you have the OS installed on them like me). It's incredibly inconvenient and a huge flaw that somehow wasn't picked up during quality control.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this SSD unless you want to have a headache with it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

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

Pros: Fast boot, Fast read/write, great boot drive.

Cons: Installing O/S (Windows 7 64bit) was challenging until I figured out how to do it (see Other Thoughts).

Other Thoughts: This is a great drive, Machine is booted in about 11 seconds, and that includes raid controller config screen that I have not gotten around to bypassing yet.

The problem I had installing Windows 7 was due to this drive being formatted as a "GPT" drive and not "MBR". When trying to install windows it would not select the drive even if I formatted it. I looked around a little and found that it was because the drive was formatted as "GPT". If you have this issue the fix is very easy. In the Windows installation UI when you are on the drive selection screen, simply click the "Delete" button on the Samsung 840 EVO drive. This will leave the drive at an "Unallocated" status. From there you can then click "Format" and once complete you will be able to select it as the install drive.

I'm not giving a star off for this because GPT is a newer valid drive format and I'm not sure if users installing Windows 8 or 10 for that matter will have the same issue. Other than that this drive is great and I would recommend it.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT Buy this item

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

Pros: Good price.

Cons: The drive went out on me in less than 4 months. I purchased this in November of 2014. It started acting up 2 weeks ago. I would do a few things and the computer would freeze up. So, I had a spare hard drive and installed Windows and program on it. The freezing up stopped. Besides this, Samsung had no place on their website to ask for an RMA for an SSD drive. Their customer support kept wanting me to call them. I told them that I did NOT like talking on the phone. They sent me to a page that didn't work. Then when I tried a live chat once again, the person told me to wait then they ended the chat.

Other Thoughts: I will never buy a product from Samsung again until they fix this mess.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible!

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

Pros: None

Cons: This is one hell of a glitchy SSD. A lot of read/write issues, slowdowns, windows would just freeze out of the blue (happens a lot.) Games would crash, or experience weird glitches that I havent had in my previous PC. Now on boot up it's telling my disk utility failure. Im gonna reinstall windows and see how it goes.

I was very disappointed.

4 out of 5 eggsFast drive, needed tweak to boot

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

Pros: Fast, 7.9 Windows Experience Index, reboots WIndows 7 Pro in 20 seconds.

Cons: At first, I couldn't install Win 7 on it for my new system, the installer said OS couldn't be installed on the drive. I had to tweak it to be MBR partition. Solution can be found on Tom's hardware forum, involves using diskpart utility from Repair->cmd prompt.

Not cheap, but I found it cheaper on Adorama.
