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.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well in older HP laptop

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

Pros: Cutting edge Vertical NAND. Price per Gb was right. Perfect fit for my intended installation inside 2008 HP dv6-1054CL laptop. Extends battery life, reduces internal heat by removing the 5400 rpm WD hdd.
Reboot time now under 20 seconds, compared to 120 seconds previously.

Cons: Win 7 64 Pro with all patches & updates to Xmas 2014 - takes up 21Gb of the 119Gb of formatted space on this drive.

Other Thoughts: 128Gb is enough for the boot drive & a few programs on this older laptop. Maybe you need 256 or 512. I didn't. This works great for my situation (so far - as I'm only one month into ownership) Hope it lasts 10 years as per the warranty. The laptop is very lightly used.

5 out of 5 eggsSSD

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

5 out of 5 eggsFast

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

Pros: It's fast and RAPID mode is great for caching.
10 Year Warranty.
150 Terabytes Written (TBW), so 40GB read/write a day for 10 years. How can you beat that?

Cons: So far, nothing.

Other Thoughts: This is my 5th Samsung SSD. None of them have given me any trouble and none of them show any sign of degradation. We use the SSD for OS, storage and usage. We only have SSD's in our system to see how they hold up and so far they are incredible. Will be interesting how they hold up a few years down the road, that will be the real test.

From the 840 EVO 120GB to the 840 Pro 256GB and now the 850 PRO 128GB I have not noticed any real world difference in speed as they are all so fast it's really impossible to tell unless you are running a business with huge I/O's where it would be noticeable.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

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. Extremely Fast.

With Rapid Mode Enabled I get Read of 2.4GByte/second and Write of 3.2GByte/second. I game that used to take 2 Minutes to load takes a total of 6 seconds now.

Cons: Small-ish. I kinda wish I would have gotten a slightly larger one, but I did not have the money to spend another $100.

Other Thoughts: The Write Speed is inconsequential. There is no way you will be using a combined write of 3.2GBytes/second unless you are copying stuff from 20 Harddrives to the SSD at the same time. (Which would fill it up extremely fast)
