5 out of 5 eggsBest Upgrade

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

Pros: Speeds up your OS across the board. Rapid mode will speed up even more. Great optimization auto setting and walk through to tweak. Cheapest and perhaps one of the most noticable upgrades you can make to your system. This is especially true if you have an OEM system.

Cons: I knew I should align the drives before migrating, however, Samsung claims you do not have to eith their migration software. So I wanted to see how their software worked and the migration was "successful " but never could get it to boot from the drive. Tried Windows repair but no luck. Didn't play to long, was already prepared to have to do a clean install anyways. Of course that is always the best way to do this.

Other Thoughts: go with the 256gb or 512gb if you have the little extra cash. There is a considerable speed difference, though that does not detract from the massive upgrade from HDD to the 128gb ssd. I have 2 - 128s running on Raid 0 (I have a 24tb backup system in place and backup important work nonstop) and it is every bit as fast as the larger ssd. Little more money, more worries about backups, same storage, though superior benchmarking doesn't translate into real world...in other words don't use these in Raid 0, just get the larger ssd. If you are going to, stick with the 128s as real world performance is better than the larger ones in Raid, regardless of benchmarks.

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. Hasn't had any major issues...just a minor one.

Cons: Be careful of the Samsung SSD Magician (the RAPID mode option). It can render your OS unusable during updates...though Windows "load last known good configuration" fixed it. There was a few heart dropping moments. Also have to be careful of firmware updates, as the last one bricked a lot of peoples 850 Pro...so much so that Samsung pulled it. I wasn't affected as I usually wait a couple of weeks after any firmware update to see if there were issues.

So...this SSD is perfectly fast...just be somewhat weary of the software.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome 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! A bit slower than the larger 850's as advertised, but not a big detectable to most users. The Samsung software is amazing. Clone was flawless as always. Can't get enough of Samsung's products! :-)

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: As Jim Cramer would say about a hot stock, Buy, Buy, Buy!! :-)

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.
