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.

1 out of 5 eggsDont do it

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

Pros: The only pro I can come up with is it stores data. For a while...

Cons: Found out after the fact it isnt compatible with AMD Chipset. On top of that, it failed in a few months. For that price it shouldnt fail so quickly. My first experience with samsung, and it will be my last. Oh, and good luck getting them to accept it under warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsInsane 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 efficient for the price.
Lots of storage for the price.
Never runs hot, even in a 2010 MacBook Pro.
Enhance battery life because there's no more moving parts.
Having no more moving parts is also great for portable computers as it reduces chances of hardware failure while carrying the device around.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: At first it was supposed to be my "Games" drive for my gaming rig. Ended up in my 2010 MacBook Pro as the main drive. Second life to this portable. Very satisfied.

5 out of 5 eggsHuge Bang of the Buck

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

Pros: This is by far the best place you can spend money to improve any systems performance. I have upgraded processors, memory, mechanical hard drives. Only to see modest at best performance increases. This SSD Drive set my system on fire. It was like I bought a brand new state of the art machine not just an upgrade drive.

Cons: Nothing yet

Other Thoughts: New Egg rocks

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
