- SATA III
Absolutely awesome 12/07/2012
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TD250BW
-Fast, cool and completely silent (duh, duh and duh)
-Good price for a 250 GB
-Had no problem reaching advertised read/write speeds. In fact, you can significantly surpass the the 250MB write speed in initial and small bursts.
-An entire reboot takes almost exactly thirty seconds. Photoshop CS6 in about three.
I wish solid state drives were affordable by the terabyte so I never needed a mechanical drive again.
-Do not disable drive caching with this drive. I lost about 100MBp/s of write performance when I did that.
-This drive will work fine out-of-the box for Average Joe who isn't a power user, but if you want to do some slightly more advanced changes to Windows to ensure the best longevity and performance of the SSD, be sure to google "ssd tweaks" or "ssd optimization" for some guides.
