5 out of 5 eggsBeware of firmware update

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

Pros: This is a fantastic drive. Fastest I have ever personally seen so far. Buy one. You won't regret. I went ahead and bought another one.

Cons: Only 1. The Samsung Magician firmware update. I updated to the latest firmware and it said it FAILED. I quickly backed up what I needed and rebooted to see if it was ok. Nope. BIOS sees a drive but no longer labels it properly. Just a bunch of ascii charactors. It won't boot.

Other Thoughts: I liked this drive so much I bought another one even with the firmware screwup. I won't be updating any firmware anytime soon

5 out of 5 eggsWhy are you reading this when you could be buying it?

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.
Great build quality
Did I mention FAST?!

Cons: Doesn't make eggs.
Doesn't have LED's.

Other Thoughts: Why are you reading this when you could be buying it? I've owned the previous generation 840 for over a year now, rock solid, reliable, sturdy, and blazing fast. Leaves my old WD Black HDD in the dust.

Just buy it, if you are still running your OS off of an HDD, be prepared to despise using any computer that isn't running the OS off of an SSD. The difference is insane.

5 out of 5 eggsOH MY!!!!!

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

Pros: Windows 7 up and running in 18-22 seconds. Are you kidding. This SSD is an absolute wonder. I currently have Windows 7 and Steam on it. and have 78 GB yet to use. I'm going to get another.

Cons: NOne

5 out of 5 eggsInsane load speeds

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

Pros: This is my 3rd time buying this drive ... Why? Because my parents wanted a faster rig and put this in their computer after they used mine after swapping this into my computer. And I just put one in my wife's new desktop. We mainly play Warcraft and the load times to get into the game are about 7 seconds from character selection to playability.

Cons: It would be nice to have more space at a lower price point. First world problems, right?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

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

Pros: Decent price. Very fast. Very easy data migration software included. Drive conditioning software free as well. 10 year warranty!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Switched from the Samsung 840 as the standard for my company's computers. The biggest reason for the change was the nice 10 year warranty. With the data migration tool, I replaced old 60 GB SSD drives effortlessly and pain free.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's really good

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 and low power consumption. Samsung Magician is a nice little utility. It isn't a stunning upgrade from my old SSD boot drive, but it seems a little faster than my OCZ vertex 2 that is 4 years old. Sequential reads and writes are 503 and 469.

Cons: Doesn't come with 3.5" mounting bracket. Gets less than 50% of the IOPS that are advertised, using Samsung Magician's benchmark. 45390 and 39211. I don't have RAPID mode enabled. It could be that, or it could be my old motherboard. ASUS M4A89TD.

Other Thoughts: 128 GB Model purchased elsewhere.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

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

Pros: This thing makes my wife's Core2 Duo scream! I run a Core2 Quad with four times the RAM, and she's always waiting for me to boot, play games, start applications, whatever. Additionally the 10 year warranty is hard to ignore!

Cons: I have yet to find any downsides to this hard drive, but I'm not a hardcore bench-marker, either.

Other Thoughts: SSDs are still a pretty new thing to my universe, so you may not be as excited as I am about these drives.

5 out of 5 eggsAs advertised.

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

Pros: Shipped sort of fast.. Works great. Speeds pretty much as advertised, at least in the Magician software. 12 minutes to install and reach desktop with local account & win10tp. Shoots 75mb/s on a system image to the old sata2 5400 rpm hdd in the dvd slot in a caddy. Fast boot makes life easier when fixing windows, which is often :)

Cons: Newegg little high on price when I bought it.. after I saw it 9 dollars less right after I ordered it :) Always the way.. but newegg have always been good guys to me in past.

Win10TP9879 right now & magician45 Rapid mode, is grayed out. says 'Error in Obtaining info, so it sort of doesn't meet the Requirements for Rapid Mode unless I can find a how-to-work-around.

Other Thoughts: Not much to say really - its a SSD. Boot time on my little Lenovo laptop i3 is maybe 4 seconds to login .. instant desktop after type in the login. Temperature of the drive has been mostly 96F - the max is 122F according to speccy

4 out of 5 eggsNice but didn't blow me away

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

Pros: Reliable…10-Year warranty

Samsung Magician is a nice software package

Cons: Not a great value, even at Black Friday price I paid. I was able to pick up a couple 240GB-256GB drives for less that were equal in performance.

Other Thoughts: No doubt a quality product but I wasn’t blown away by the performance. Not that it wasn’t really quick; it’s just that all the other top names are really quick too.

The SSD drive is becoming somewhat of a commodity so if you are going to charge a premium price you’d better have something extra special.

That being said, if you’ve never had an SSD you won’t be disappointed. One of these babies can make a machine with $100 processor feel quicker than an i7 that has only a 7200 RPM spinner.

5 out of 5 eggsSo fast

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

Pros: I have been installing these in all of the laptops that have been coming in that are 2-4 years old. They are very good at breathing life into older systems. Of course they are marvelous with a new system as well.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: They are a bit thinner than traditional HDD's so if you are putting them in a laptop you may have to put a bit of foam backed tape as a cushion. I use 3M double sided mounting tape and leave the label on once side for this purpose.
