2 out of 5 eggsWorked; Now Doesn't Work

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - 10 year warranty
- Advertised speeds
- 3D V-NAND

Cons: - Last about 6 months
- Intermittent read errors during boot
- Decided to enter "lock" mode while performing a Secure Erase with Samsung Magician.

Other Thoughts: About the issues:

Intermittently during booting and restarts "A Disk read error occurred" system message would display and prompting for a restart. Tried new cables, tested components, etc and still continued to received the error message.

Tried to perform a Secure Erase with Samsung Magician and nothing except issues. Attempted to do a Secure Erase from USB boot and again, Magician has nothing, but issues. After having nothing except issues after several attempts. Decided to forget about doing a Secure Erase. Decided to reboot machine then suddenly was met with "Enter User password" then "Enter Master password" - Drive was completely locked.

How can the drive be locked with a password? Never even enabled the password feature. Basically a paper-weight in it's current condition.

I've used many SSD's in my past builds and never ran into any of these issues whatsoever. After the Samsung 850 Pro SSD failed, I replaced it with a spare Intel 530 SSD. No error messages during boot or restart, everyone works.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very fast (compared to HDD) and the Magician software is great too. Easy to use.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Was not set up for AHCI mode before installing windows. Was a bit of a pain to fix (had to edit the registry) but once I got that figured out everything ran like a dream.

2 out of 5 eggsBewilderment

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Long warranty, somewhat fast

Cons: Not any faster than my two old RAID 0 crucial 64gb SSD's it replaced. This SSD insists on reverting to some of the original data I had placed on it. Secure erase also will not work. It says my SSD is frozen and the supposed remedy does not work either. I used DBAN to erase it and found two errors in either write or read.

Other Thoughts: I used a system image to load information onto the Samsung 850 Pro. I am an X-plane aficionado. I program buttons on my joystick, throttle and keyboard. In addition, I use a different livery (paint scheme) than the original Boeing 787 which I fly. Periodically buttons on my keyboard and liveries will change back to their original programming. I am perplexed and puzzled by this behavior. I did not have to update firmware. But, since the program resides on the 850 Pro and I get an indication that the SSD is frozen. I strongly suspect that it is faulty.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Amazing

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: After loading Windows 8.1 on this drive, my computer will boot to the login screen in about 5 seconds. This drive is the main reason for that speed. Samsung, you outdid yourself with this drive.

- Very fast
- Quiet - as all SSD's should be
- Very well priced - Thanks Newegg

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: If I had to buy this drive again, I probably would have purchased a larger drive, but I knew that going in. Overall spectacular.

Cons: No complaints, would recommend.

Other Thoughts: Magician software works nicely & isn't a hindrance at all.

5 out of 5 eggsBoots windows in 50 seconds!!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Boots my windows operating system in 50 seconds or less compared to my old 500 GB HD Blue Drive which took around 3 minutes to boot windows. I haven't had it long but judging from the other reviews it's very reliable as well.

Cons: The installation disk that comes with this drive isn't necessary and from reading the other reviews might cause system trouble. Plus it's a very small drive so it most likely needs it's own SSD drive mount if you don't already have one.

Other Thoughts: N/A

5 out of 5 eggsIf it's not the best it's second best...You decide

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast
Stickers Included
Included software worked like a charm

Cons: At the price.... some extras....screws?

Other Thoughts: Dropped this into a Celeron G1820 Processor system on a budget ECS mATX board with a SATA II HD. What did take about a minute to boot now hits the desktop ready for action in about 15 seconds. Win 7 action score for the drive is 7.9. I used the included cloning software to clone the old 250 GB HD to the 850 and it took less then 10 minutes and gave me no problems

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: N/A
