4 out of 5 eggsConverter images misled

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: The kit includes a 3.5" to 2.5" drive converter, for ONE drive and ONE drive only (see cons). Includes transfer software and USB to SATA dongle and cable.
Haven't installed/powered up the drives to try them out yet, I'm sure they're fine.

Cons: The images I saw of the kit showed that the 3.5" to 2.5" drive converter could hold 2 SSD's. They have since changed the images to show that it only holds one drive. It could be modded to allow one drive above and below by drilling holes closer to the side edges. Mounting would have them offset from the other. Probably not worth it though, as the SATA connectors would not be in the same orientation.

Other Thoughts: Apart from my drive bay gripe, the kit was worth it as it was on sale and a promo code on top of that made it cost less than just the drive by itself.

5 out of 5 eggsI'm impressed!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: Great price, lightweight, & fast. The USB adapter and SATA cable is a great added bonus!

Cons: I really have nothing negative to say.

Other Thoughts: I am absolutely impressed by the speed of the 840 EVO. I purchased to replace my 120GB mechanical drive in my Macbook Pro (Late 2007 model). I installed a fresh install of OSX Mavericks and then installed the drive in the notebook. When I booted the system and began to go through the setup process, I was flabbergasted at the performance increase. In addition the notebook now runs so much more quietly. This is my first SSD install and I was expecting the drive to be alot heavier, which it wasn't. The system is peppy and 250GB is adequate for a mobile device. I do not intend to save my whole life on it, so it should remain pretty speedy.

5 out of 5 eggsPure Smoke!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: WEI score maxed out!
Took my Windows boot time to the logon screen from about 45 seconds to about 12.
Some apps now open in less than a half second.
Software that comes with it is actually useful, see below for more on this.
This is the best upgrade I have done. I just put in a new z97 MOBO and the new Intel 4 GHz CPU OC to about 4.4 GHz into my system. I came from a 3 GHz CPU and old MOBO. That was a nice increase in performance but cost 10 times what this drive did. The drive increase in performance was much more profound. Great bang for the buck!

Cons: I found both the drive migration software and Magician performance software to be useful. Though something happened with my benchmarking which was fine and realistic when I first tested the drive. After optimization I am getting crazy high benchmarks and it acts like it is cached or something. I now get Random Read /Write IOPS of 290291/189199. Seq Read/Write MBs are 7066/6016.... something does not add up in these benchmark scores. I guess I could read the docs as they might shed light on this...?

Other Thoughts: There are complaints in here on the software requesting log on credentials... Hum, I have no such issue - but then I did read where it said to install as administrator and this might have something to do with other(s) having this issue. The migration software will allow a larger source drive than the target SSD drive. As long as there is not more data on the source than is to be written to the target. Someone else commented you would have to re-partition to get around a larger source drive, not true. If you have too much data on the source drive for the target to handle, look to delete some old data prior to preforming the migration. Or copy some data off to another drive and you will be all set.

5 out of 5 eggsSSD>money=time

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: Brilliantly fast drive. Stunningly low price. Samsung Migration and Magician software are simple and work well, faster and more reliable than finding and downloading something else, thus also more cost effective (see below).

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: My computer's hard drive at work was stolen a few months ago (who steals a cheap Dell hard drive if everything is kept on the server anyhow?). To get me going again we replaced it with the slowest spinny hard drive currently manufactured because that was all we could find in town. Today I was finally able to replace it with this SSD. After running some tests I think the Samsung SSD will save 10 minutes per day (a few minutes to boot and load bulky programs, a few seconds to autosave large files, a few milliseconds to navigate and browse, it adds up). I'll also save about 14 minutes per day when I am caught daydreaming, internet surfing, or wandering while the computer boots, reboots, or opens something big. Total 24 minutes per day is 2 hours per week. That is 100 hours per year. My company charges $110 for my time, I get about half of that in pay and benefits. My computer and this SSD will last about 5 more years. Therefore, this drive will pay/save my company $55,000, and will pay me personally $27,500 assuming I work here 5 years. It cost about $500 including purchase price and time spent ordering and installing. Too expensive? It will pay for itself 110 times. According to the specs it weighs 1.5 troy ounces, and gold is about $1300 per ounce right now. This hard drive is worth 5.6 times its weight in gold. Every year. That's 2.8 times it's weight in gold to me. After 5 years it will produce for me personally enough money to buy a new car, whether Kia or BMW remains to be seen. Put another way, It is the difference between retiring at 40 vs retiring at 39 1/4.

Is this SSD worth it? HECK YES!

5 out of 5 eggsEffective bundle

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: You get the tray and fasteners needed to install in an older case. Fast and silent memory solution. Did a clean install of win 8.1 64 on this drive without needing the Samsung install disk and with no issues.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I put Win 8.1 and my program files on this drive, and direct everything else onto an older HDD. Satisfyingly quick windows startup an application startups in this arrangement.

5 out of 5 eggsSweeeeeet!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: Crazy Fast and Responsive Without a Glitch in Sight.
Super Easy Install (comes with bracket, screws, and SATA cable).
Fantastic Software to Custom Configure This Bad Boy (including setting up a partition).

Cons: None Baby!

Other Thoughts: So pleased with this product, my brother saw this thing in action and immediately bought one.

Don't skimp on capacity, even if you're using a second drive. Get the 250 GB if you can swing it.
