5 out of 5 eggs Fast, light, great upgrade 03/09/2013

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros:

fast, compared to a non ssd drive this thing is amazing. reasonable amount of storage space. low power consumption. my windows 7 performance rating under disk performance went from a 5.9 (mechanical drive) to a 7.9 (this samsung drive) and i really notice the difference. windows 7 now boots in seconds.

Cons:

no 3.5" to 2.5" adaptor or screws, but if youre installing into a laptop to replace an old drive this wont be a problem. no usb to sata cable to copy the files off the old drive onto the new one, but doing a fresh os install is a good idea of going from a mechanical hdd to ssd, see other thoughts

Other Thoughts:

if youre going to be installing this into a desktop, make sure you get a 3.5" to 2.5" adaptor, but beware of certain adaptors. the adaptor i purchased wasnt made correctly and the holes didnt line up, so read the reviews before you buy. when installing this in place of a mechanical drive, if your motherboard supports ahci, then enable it, it will improve the drives performance and enable trim support. if ahci isnt already enabled, when you enable it you either have to reinstall the os, or do a google seach for the workaround.
