1 out of 5 eggsTLC Flash bug, not MLC

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

Pros: Flooded market with cheap SSD drives which brought down the price of the competition.

Cons: TLC Flash bug for which there is a software fix. It is available on Samsung's website and I suggest that anyone with an 840 basic or 840 EVO get the app to re-flash their drives.

Other Thoughts: My apologies on my last review. I meant to say TLC flash instead of MLC flash. Most modern SSDs are made with MLC flash where Samsung has used the new lower-cost TLC flash in the 840 and 840 EVO. The problem is the same and it involves old data that has started to decay thus causing the on-board controller to have slow read issues. In some cases it is really bad. I've done the fix and it takes about an hour for the 500GB model plus back-ups, removing them from RAID array and system, doing the fix x 2, rebuilding arrays and copying backups back onto them. So in reality it takes around 5 or 6 hours to do everything in a two drive RAID 0 array. Time will tell if it is a permanent fix but I have my doubts. Google a program called HD tach to check your drives.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Unhappy about MLC flash bug

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

Pros: Fast and lower cost with a slick app to make them even faster.

Cons: Fast and lower cost with a slick app to make them even faster. I list these as cons since this is what convinced me to buy 8 of these drives. With the recent revelation of the MLC flash memory voltage decay and the necessary firmware "fix", I honestly don't trust the longevity of these drives anymore.

Other Thoughts: I have five of these 500GB drives with one in my laptop and four in two RAID arrays. I also have three others in different sizes. Now they ALL have to be flashed with new firmware because of the firmware bug. The two RAID systems will have to be cloned and dis-arrayed because the firmware fix doesn't work with RAID. The firmware fix itself is quick but the extreme inconvenience is not. It will take me hours to go through all of these and then what? Another firmware fix down the road? I have lost all confidence in these drives now. If it took Samsung 6 months or more to realize that they had a major issue with how the voltage decays in the MLC flash then how can they know how it will last over the long haul? I can't see this being good for read/write speeds over time.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing drives

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

Pros: Fast, great capacity, included software has a lot of nice features.

Cons: None as of right now.

Other Thoughts: I am running the 500Gb drive along with 4x 840 evo 250GB drives. They all run great and have given me no issues.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect consumer SSD

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

Pros: Excellent drive: plugs straight in and works. Good performance, reasonably priced, and has a nice, easy to use utility / firmware management suite.

Cons: None, really.

Other Thoughts: This drive is an ideal consumer SSD. The drive's only technical shortcomings are not really a factor for consumer use. You could pay a bunch more money to get a slight bump in write performance and endurance, but why would you when the EVO already provides excellent performance, and you could instead spend the additional money on a higher-capacity drive? Mine is installed in my home / gaming PC and has performed flawlessly since I bought it just over a year ago. Zero complaints about this drive; wouldn't hesitate to buy again.

2 out of 5 eggsIMPORTANT !!!

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

Pros: Still a decent price for the size, but be aware that all the 840 Evo from Samsung have a problem that requires a firmware update to restore how quickly it works (See Samsung Performance Restoration Firmware Update)
See more in Cons !

Cons: Firmware fix from Samsung is now available from Samsung
Google "Samdung 840 Evo Performance Restoration Firmware Update"
Pretty easy if you have Intel and only 1 partition, but can be a big problem if you have AMD, or Amd with more than one partition, or are using RAID. More than 1 partition and Raid can be a problem for Intel and Amd (Fix won't work).
SAMSUNG you need to get a decent fix for people with AMD and People with RAID or more than 1 partition.
This is not acceptable to give these people a fix mainly designed for intel, and with poor instructions, or no decent fix for long term "read slow performance". Get the AMD people something that works better ! Not New Eggs Fault.
If they don't get on it soon, get something else until they do !

Other Thoughts: Back up things before you do firmware fix.
We should not have to fix these new products in this manner.
They did respond to the problem, but poorly for AMD users.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

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

Pros: Fast, lots of space, detected first time.

Cons: Not as fast as I was hoping for. But it's considerably faster in loading windows and loading maps of BF4. Needs to have the Samsung software to get the full potential.

Other Thoughts: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 240-Pin SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000)

5 out of 5 eggsWindows 8.1 actually runs...

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

Pros: Great price, excellent software, data migration is painless, installation is a snap.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I put an 840 Pro in an older Dell XPS running Win7. I kept wondering over the last year why my new Dell Inspiron 15R running Win8.1 was such a dog. DUH!!! I put the new 840EVO in and WHAM! The new Inspiron will give the old XPS a run for its money! Excellent upgrade from the WD HD!
Startup time is cut by over a minute! Apps run like you want them to. Great SSD!

5 out of 5 eggsSAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW

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

Pros: Best upgrade you could ever do on your rig if you had a HDD.
My computer went from 3 minutes to 20 seconds to boot.
I had a HDD 1TB before, worked perfectly but SSD beats it lighting fast.

Simple, fast, easy cloning(Took me an hour for 350GB to clone)

Cons: None, Really..

Other Thoughts: The kit is only for cloning and replacing the older HDD/SSD.
