5 out of 5 eggsSamsung 840 EVO Desktop Kit

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: It's a Samsung product...

Sequental Read: 547 MB/s
Sequential Write: 501 MB/s
Random Read IOPS: 94068
Random Write IOPS: 54808

Firmware Ver: EXT0BB6Q

Above Test Results using Performance Testing.

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K
MB: GA-Z87-HD3
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LP, Size 8Gb
Vid. Card: EVGA GT630
O/S: Win 7-64bit.

NOTHING is overclocked, running everything at stock. Cold boot, about 18 secs. Re-Boot about 20 secs. And that's plenty fast, as if you need to enter into BIOS any faster than that could be a headache. Too many user reviews focus on the re-boot. The focus should be when using applications, etc., That's where the rubber meets the road. We shall see in time...

Cons: Got the kit, thinking why go look for a drive tray bracket etc.,
Well, the 3.5" drive tray went ito a Antec Sonata Solo case, whereby Antec didn't have the side holes as it was designed mounting a HDD under, using the 4 screw mounting. Also Antec's drive tray is oversized so that air can circulate around a hard drive. Solution?

Monted the 840 EVO on the tray in the kit. Then used 7.875" plasit ties on each side of the Samsung drive tray to secure the tray to Antec's drive tray. Nice and secure, but a surprise nevertheless.

Either way I think the kit was worth it, for a few bucks more. The other accessories may come in handy down the road in the kit. The moral of the story here? Check your case and see how your HDD mounts. Then proceed from there. Never assume anything.

But, this is really not a con, just sharing a personal experience.

Other Thoughts: The Magician software that comes with the drive is superb. Don't know how long SSD drives last, but this one has a 3 year warranty. Afterall, they are like your USB flash drive.

First time using a SSD as the O/S boot drive. I will miss defrag, as you do NOT defrag SSD drives. I also miss WDC HDD being the 0 drive, the Caviars (black label) that is. But, WDC will become the data drive, so all is not lost.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Value

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: Fast! Easy install! The desktop package has an adapter tray, USB adapter and software disc to make transfers easy. The Magician software makes it easy to configure the drive for maximum life and performance.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: now, I wish I had sprung for a 250 GB drive, but otherwise I'm very happy. FYI, as the C: drive in this machine with Win 7 Pro and a couple of games ( I'm storing my music, pix and docs on a mechanical drive) I'm using 44 gigs with ~56 gigs free.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD, works with AMD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: WORKS WITH AMD CHIPSET -- SEE "OTHER THOUGHTS"

Fast, fast, fast... did I mention fast? You will never want to go back to a hdd for your operating system after you install this. 120GB is good for an OS drive because it gives you enough room for all your applications and things like documents, photos, your most recent downloads, etc.

The performance of this drive is incredible. I get 442 MB/sec read and 501 MB/sec write. Unreal, especially when you think of the lengths people would go in order to get not even half of this kind of performance before SSD's became popular.

Cons: SSD's are still more expensive than I'd like but it is probably the best upgrade you can make for your system. Because of this you are left with limited space; it is wise to have a hard drive in your case or an external hdd (or both) for extra media and especially games in particular.

Other Thoughts: This actually WILL work with AMD Chipsets. I use a MSI 970A-G46 with my Samsung SSD.

In Windows, you have to go into Device Manager and "roll back" the AMD AHCI driver. After this happens, you will be using the generic Microsoft AHCI driver. You should then be able to go into the Samsung Magician software and update the firmware with no issue.

There is no benefit to going back to the AMD driver in my experience. This SSD is so fast any performance benefit will be nil. It is widely known that Samsung does not like AMD AHCI drivers so just stick with the Windows one, however you should be able to use AMD's as well -- just not for upgrading firmware.
