SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC128B/WW 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs My 1st SSD....couldn't be any happier. 07/10/2012

This review is from: SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC128B/WW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Bought it on sale for $89.99. Very nice deal considering this brand hardly goes on sale for under a gig/$1. Needless to say, this thing is fast. Like others have mentioned the advertised speeds are pretty much what you get in this package. Windows boots up in no time, got that sick 7.9 rating(lol), and all my applications load faster.

Now i hear people say "windows boots up in 10-15 sec" etc, but for me my pc never really took too long to boot. The real issue was when you get to the desktop. How fast you can go online, click applications, etc. It would take a while for me. I would sit there and look at the desktop for probably 30-45sec before i could use anything after a reboot. With a SSD, windows boots up in like 15 sec, the desktop pops up, i click on chrome a second later, and i'm online. I even threw a bunch of programs to run on startup to try and slow it down, and they all pop up seconds after the desktop shows, ready to be used. I couldn't ask for more.

Cons: Research! I did so much research on SSD's and what needed to be done after installation, and you know what? I wasted my time. That stupid Samsung Magician does all the work for me! Opened it up, clicked on optimized and it disabled defragment and other options i thought i had to do myself. It was too easy. What where they thinking?

A 3.5" bracket would be nice, but i just bought a roswell one for $5 and it's worked fine.

Other Thoughts: After installing win7 ultimate(40gigs don't bother with ultimate unless you're desperate for some language packs), FFXIV(20gigs), BF3(20gigs), and Crysis(6gigs) I had like, 35gigs left over. Kinda sucks how fast you can fill one of these up. Most games won't show much improvement, for instance Crysis loads just as fast on my WD black as it does on my SSD. However it is a noticeable difference on BF3 and FFXIV. Loading big maps and zones are much faster and with BF3 you're usually the 1st one in a game.

Other than that it's a really great product and I plan on getting a 256gb for my laptop when another sale pop up. Very good investment.

5 out of 5 eggs Good Flash Drive(before I lost it) 05/17/2012

This review is from: Patriot X-Porter 2GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model PSF2GUSB

Pros: Easy to use, plug and play. Got inspired a while back and used it as a ubuntu installer for my old laptop. Installed ubuntu just fine and played with the OS until i got bored and just gave the laptop win7, lol.

Cons: 2 gigs, kinda small in this day and age.

Other Thoughts: I lost it! I know it's not that important but it wasn't broke or anything, I could at least put SOMETHING on it...too lazy to clean up my room though.
