4 out of 5 eggs  Great Upgrade to Early 2010 MBP

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500LW 2.5" 500GB TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: This product is light and very easy to install on an Early 2010 13" MacBook Pro. I used Carbon Copy Cloner to get my laptop image on the SSD. Then I tested the boot times. On my old 500GB OEM drive the boot time was 1 minute 47 seconds. With the new SSD the boot time was 9 seconds. WOW!!!! I also run Parallels with a Windows 7 BootCamp partition at the same time. This SSD has significantly improved the overall speed of my MBP.

Cons: No Mac software included with SSD. Not a huge issue but it made the transition a little more complicated. This is why I took an egg off.

Other Thoughts: Why can't someone have a buy one get 5 free special! Hehe.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500LW 2.5" 500GB TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: Put this in my MacBook Pro (mid 2012)
Works flawlessly.
Have used the external usb 3 connector many times
2nd Samsung drive, very impressed.

Cons: Non So far.

Other Thoughts: Great SSD. I usually go with the Intel, but I could not pass this one up. I would definitely buy again, and may do that to upgrade my wife's sony notebook.

5 out of 5 eggsThoughts on Samsung 840 EVo

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500LW 2.5" 500GB TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: -Very easy setup
-High amount of memory
-Very noticeable computer speed increase
-Boot times are extremely fast
-Games run great
-Comes with software that gives useful information and lets you change specific settings on your drives current state

Cons: -It's expensive (but worth it)

Other Thoughts: Just got this baby the other day and it runs like a dream, I highly recommend this if you are thinking about it. Computer boots up in less than 30 seconds and other programs will run noticeably quicker.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing as always

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500LW 2.5" 500GB TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: Samsung makes great SSDs. I buy them exclusively. In house NAND flash, Controller, and Samsung Magician come together to make arguably the finest SSD experience anywhere. RAPID mode makes everything even faster if you have the extra RAM to spare (16GB or more IMHO)

Cons: None

Unless you are trying to put industrial read/write cycles on this drive, the TLC memory will outlast the computer its in anyway. In 5 years we will be scoffing at a 500GB SSD. Anandtech did a workup on the 840 EVO expected life span. If you are writing 100 GB per day to this drive, the expected life span is still 23.75 years. Frankly, I'll take the significantly lower cost of the 840 EVO with TLC versus the more expensive SLC and MLC drives.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome SSD, its reputation precedes it

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500LW 2.5" 500GB TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: Fast, fast, fast, good size, Samsung Magician Software is awesome and easy to customize and navigate through its control interface, Rapid Boot is awesome, launching programs are a cinch. Windows Experience Index Rating 7.8!!!! Yes u heard me 7.8!!! Goes well with ASUS Pro Z87 Mobo

Cons: nada

Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favor, get this 500GB SSD 840 EVO, 250 is good too but you save 30-50 bucks if you get the 500GB. Its faster than 250, double the storage of the 259, only for a couple bucks more being that the average 250GB EVO is between $165-$180, the 500GB is average $250 spend the extra $$ and save money cause two 250GB will be over $300 just to equae to 500GB

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good SSD, mediocre Data Transition Software

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500LW 2.5" 500GB TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Notebook Bundle Kit

Pros: Fast

Cons: Mediocre Data Transfer Software may render cloning difficult and make you request assistance from a more knowledgeable friend.

Other Thoughts: Samsung has the best overall reviews in terms of performance and reliability and I have been having a very good personal experience, so far, with an identical one installed in my new laptop for the past two months, once I completed what was, in my case, a rather time consuming and aggravating cloning process – with a third party software since Samsung’s Data Migration did not work as intended. On this new Samsung 500Gb SSD I plan a clean install of Windows 7 Pro plus my other software packages which will, hopefully, spare me any additional aggravation. However, the speed of this SSD drive model compensated to some extent for the aggravation experienced and made me purchase this second one. For all first time buyers out there, just make sure that you download and install the Samsung Magician software. This little piece of software performs optimization and maintenance of the Samsung (and only Samsung) SSD drives. The first time users of SSD drives should know that SSD optimization and maintenance is different than that for traditional HDD so it would be a good idea to use the exhaustive information available on the internet to familiarize themselves with the functioning as well as with the optimization and maintenance requirements of SSD drives before embarking on the upgrade process. Both Data Migration and Samsung Magician software are included on a CD with both SSD packages sold, specifically, the MZ-7TE500LW which is the code name for the current one and includes the USB 3 to SATA cable and the MZ-7TE500BW which consists of just the SSD. If you do not pay attention to the last two letters of the code names which are the only difference between the two packages your installation may be delayed and you may have to purchase a separate USB 3 to SATA cable.
