SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Everything, this is an exceptionally great SSD that I found on promo for $90. Faster than the 120GB 840 EVO, though not by much.

5 Year warranty.

Plenty of online documentation with instructions for everything.

This SSD ROCKS!

The 840 Pro is the King of SSD's, yet to be beaten.

Cons: Didn't have the cash to purchase the limit of 2 when on promo.

Other Thoughts: If one can get these while on promo, do so! Yes, the 850 Pro has a 10 year warranty, but the 840 Pro is proven, it's the King of SSD's & yet to be beaten over the long run.

Though the 128GB models are a bit slower, it's plenty for most who aren't dual booting or has a ton of software installed (mine has less than 30GB used). If one plans to have a lot of games stored on the SSD, go for a larger model for even more speed.

Taking care of (not babying) these SSD's will make them last a long time. Samsung has their Magician utility to help with this, but sometimes their recommendation of 200MB of page file is too little, and a warning will show. Bump it up to 512MB if so.

These will also save on battery life if in laptop, though mine is the main SSD in my Dell XPS 8700, running Windows 7 Pro, where it's going to stay.

Be sure to follow the recommendation to leave 10% unpartitioned at the end, this helps to improve lifespan, and will help keep the speed up. Run the optimizer once monthly, this is a manual TRIM, other than that, this SSD needs no pampering.

ADATA Premier 16GB microSDHC UHS-I CLASS 10 with Adapter

4 out of 5 eggs Better than the last brand! 12/24/2014

This review is from: ADATA Premier 16GB microSDHC UHS-I CLASS 10 with Adapter

Pros: Retail packaging, helps to keep product from damage in transit. Great read speeds (more in Other Thoughts).

Great price per GB for this type of item.

Much better than the Class 6 speed cards of this type on reads.

Cons: Write speeds could be better, depending on use.

Other Thoughts: As mentioned on Pros, while the write speeds aren't much faster than the card it replaced, the read speeds are 3x faster than a Class 6 card that I recently purchased, not paying attention to the details, just the price.

Though all wasn't lost on that one, took the ADATA adapter and placed the Class 6 brand in my digital camera & use this one with a USB 3.0 card reader.

Great replacements for Flash drives when on promo, and in my case, used to create a portable bootable Linux Mint OS. That allows me to boot & run my OS from most any computer that doesn't have Secure Boot, which is what I wanted it for.

That allows me to boot and use my portable OS on any computer w/out leaving a trace behind. Of course they'll wear faster with this type of use, but what's $7 on promo for these cards? If it lasts through the warranty & fails, no big deal, something faster will be the standard.

The only thing I see that needs improvement on these cards are write speeds. 16MB/sec writes are about tops, while reads are a decent 40MB/sec.

Then again, I knew I wasn't purchasing a SSD when ordered, and for the money (on promo), it's a good card.

5 out of 5 eggs Hey, they're CD's! 12/24/2014

This review is from: ADATA Premier 16GB microSDHC UHS-I CLASS 10 with Adapter

Pros: Premium sleeve packaging like the high dollar brands.

Same with quality of the CD's. Rosewill delivers again.

Cons: Could be a Pro, in the highly rare event of a coaster, consider it as a bonus drink coaster for your computer desk on the house.

Other Thoughts: Many times these days, it's DVD's on promo, at least 4 out of 5 times. CD's aren't obsolete, because Backup * Partition software are constantly upgrading, requiring a new CD every time. So when many feels they're dead, they're not, as it's a waste of a good DVD to burn a 400MB ISO.

To be honest, I would have purchased any sleeve of CD's on promo, but it was Rosewill's day. Have used 2 already & they're as good as the ones that's 3x more in cost. I've never in my life purchased any optical media that wasn't on promo, and in that same time & many sleeves, have had 2-3 coasters, and that may have been the fault of a worn out optical drive. At $6 for 50, I can toss one here & there, they make great coasters for drinks on my desk.

Plus I have at least 6 other Rosewill branded products, none has ever failed me, so I felt confident in choosing the brand.

What else is there to say about CD's?
