SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Slow reads in first 15% of space after 6 months 11/22/2013

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

Pros: Was very fast (220 MB/s) when installed and tested.

Cons: Doing a periodic drive check, HD Tune showed ~30MB/s read times, which wasn't the case when it was new. The speed increases at the ~65GB mark, back up to normal. After an error scan, the speed map shows about half red (slow) and half yellow in that area for the drive.

Other Thoughts: I bought the drive in April, so it's been in operation for ~6 months. Very light use. Only ~80GB on the drive so far.

This behavior raises concerns about reliability for me.

Mushkin Enhanced 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Memory for Apple Model 976559A
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs May not work with 2006-07 mac mini 08/07/2012

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Memory for Apple Model 976559A

Pros: Good price.

Cons: None. Can't blame the product for compatibility issues.

Other Thoughts: Installed in a 2007 mac mini, which was apparently a late 2006 version, and which doesn't like this memory. Our local mac shop said it's hit and miss with minis from that timeframe. If it doesn't work, it won't even boot or let you do a hardware test.
