5 out of 5 eggsGreat Upgrade

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250LW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: - Noticeably faster than the Intel 530 Series and cheaper too.
- Included cable/adapter and cloning software works perfectly
- Included maintenance program works well too
- 3-yr warranty

Cons: None, so far.

Other Thoughts: I also have the 120GB version of this same model. The 250GB is faster for small file writes due to larger capacity. This is to be expected. This is the best upgrade you can give your laptop or desktop since traditional hard drives are the bottleneck in most systems.

3 out of 5 eggsSAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250LW 2.5" SSD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250LW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: Small.
No internally moving components.
Rapid boot speed (allegedly).

Cons: High cost for only 250 GB capacity.
Usual MSRP $205.99, however, I was able to purchase for $154.99 during a shell-shocker sale.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this SSD with the intention of installing both Windows & and 8.1 (dual OS system w/boot menu). My build has 14.5 TB's of storage so all I wanted on the SSD were the actual OS files.
Had infinite problems while attempting to install either OS due to formatting issues (this was a Windows issue however and not in any way related to the SSD).
After multiple attempts at installing Windows 7 my ASUS Sabertooth MB failed (no longer recognized any of the sATA ports other than port 0 and port 6, which was my optical drive). Don't know if failure had anything to with the SSD but I had to RMA my MB and get a new one. Have everything installed in my Cooler Master 935 HAF Stacker, sans the SSD, but have yet to muster the courage to power the system up for fear that sATA ports may not be recognized again. If so, however, at least I'll know the SSD had nothing to do with the original MB failure.
(I Also installed a 4 port PCIe sATA controller card prior to 1st MB failure and I suspect that may have had something to do with the failure.)
All in all, I would recommend waiting for the prices of SSD's to drop and the capacity to increase before making the move to SSD's, especially if you're on a budget (like I am).

5 out of 5 eggsBest SSD Available!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250LW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: Very very fast! Easy to install, smooth transition from old drive, revived my laptop giving it new life and only had to clone once. (Alienware M17 R1)

Cons: SLOW (over 4 hours) cloning process with Samsung provided software.

Other Thoughts: Although my startup times didn't iimprove very much, nearly everything else did... No delay in office programs starting up, Games load much much faster and everything really is much smoother!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome drive!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250LW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: VERY fast, sharp looks, seamless data transfer, low power consumption gives better laptop battery life, took a slightly older (but original before Dell got them) Alienware and made it cook once again! With laptop kit, took little effort to install.

Cons: With the nature of this drive, should be packaged better against impact (I didn't drop it, but see the inherent dangers). Tho a seamless transfer, very SLOW transfer took almost 4 hours...

Other Thoughts: I put in the included spacer, tho not needed in my laptop, for that much better protection. (Nice touch Samsung!) My boot up times didn't improve much, BUT when I get to daily use, it is definitely MUCH faster! --I was told this is the fastest drive available. I've done no testing myself against other brands but I am impressed with this drive!

5 out of 5 eggsCouldn't have been easier

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250LW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: I got the upgrade kit because this was my first time buying an SSD and I was worried that the cloning process was going to be difficult. This kit made it simple. It was really fast with the USB 3.0 transfer cable and it cloned while in windows.

Windows 8 boot times on this are just a few seconds!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I already have the cable to reuse for my next Samsung SSD purchase

5 out of 5 eggsNot your usual clone operation!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250LW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: Smooth as silk! We were migrating from a Win 7 Dell Inspiron 1564 w/ a half-full 320 GB to the 250 GB SSD. The included utility moved everything it needed over. Now boots & load apps lightning quick. Not enough experience on btty life or heat dissipation yet, though.

Cons: Not really a Con, but: To those used to traditional cloning (Ghost, G4L, etc.), this is not your usual clone operation. It does not load a trim OS and work outside Windows, it runs IN Windows. So don't freak out like I did.

5 out of 5 eggsfast drive

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250LW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: Works, boots Windows 8 in less than 5 seconds, hasn't had any problems yet, Magician software is also useful for optimizing your drive

Cons: The migration software is kind of useless. I had to install a fresh copy of Windows

5 out of 5 eggsSamsung Evo

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250LW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: Unbelievable performance. Ive only been able to run this ssd at 1.5 and 3.0 Gb/s and the performance is still insane. From the moment you press your power button till full startup is usually 15-20 seconds, more so around the 15 second mark. The magician software is great but make sure you are able to run it properly. At this time it does not always function fully with AMD. Intel i hear is great, but both my laptop and computer that run this ssd are AMD. The ssd still functions perfectly, it's just that you may not be able to utilize all the functionality of the software.

Cons: The connection ports on the ssd are a bit cheap, but i have not yet broken or bent one, and ive swapped and played around with these drives multiple times. If i had to suggest a con that would be it, and that's nit-picking.

Other Thoughts: Do yourself a huge favor in advance and check your BIOS and make sure it is up-to-date and you understand how to use it. I spent a long time trying to put this ssd in my laptop because my BIOS (InsydeH20) is absolute garbage and HP likes to lock you out of manufacturer functions in order to get you to pay for a technician to do it. There are ways to get around it, but you need serious tech training or at least a good understanding of computer software. These ssds like to run in AHCI mode, but can be run in RAID (im running it that way on my desktop, and AHCI on my laptop).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive and Bundle

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250LW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: 840 EVO is super fast and has very low power consumption.
Kit includes super easy to use migration software and a USB 3.0 to SATA adapter.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I paid and extra $5 for the laptop kit. The included adapter and software made replacing my laptop's hard drive very easy.
The adapter is USB 3.0 and it works with standard laptop hard drives.
