5 out of 5 eggs Awesome drive, hard to beat 05/05/2014

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TE500BW

Pros:

Freaking awesome drive. Samsung reliability, data transfer rates which almost lead the market (not quite but close), at a great price. That is a hard combination to beat.

Cons:

- absolutely none

Other Thoughts:

Technically, you can get a faster drive. I believe Intel's latest/greatest are a touch faster at reading data (although a fair amount slower at writing!!). However, Samsung's reliability is second to none. Take that and combine it with the good price, you easily do better getting this drive versus getting Intel's as the speed difference isn't enough anyone will notice.

This drive was purchased to replace my 10k VelociRaptor WD HD (my boot drive was already a 128 GByte Samsung drive). I inserted this drive, copied all data/programs to this SSD, shutdown and removed the HD drive, and booted up with the SSD in place. It showed up as D: drive. Worked like a charm the first time, the way it should be. My VelociRaptor HD is now used as a backup drive in my system.

If a better consumer SSD exists out there than this, I have not seen it.
