Pros: Great airflow.
Cons: No cons at this time.
Other Thoughts: I bought 4 of these to put on Coolermaster Nepton 280L, and when they begin to spin they keep the cpu cooler than when the system idles. So my idle temps are actually higher than my temps at 25-40% load.
These fans are really good, I feel like the value is definitely there. Airflow/sound level vs price is definitely one of the best.
Pros: Was not DOA.
Is fast for a spinner.
Large capacity at a cheap price.
Cons: none yet...fingers crossed.
Other Thoughts: I feel like, for some reason, that buying this drive was a gamble for me. After reading all of the reviews, i was sure my drive would be DOA. And am thoroughly happy it was not. PLEASE DONT FAIL DRIVE, PLEASE!
I am using this drive as an internal storage, so i am not booting to it, and im only writing once or twice a week @ about 2-3 GB at a time.
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Reads/write exactly where they are advertised.
The 2nd best solid state drive money can buy IMO (compared to the pro version being #1)
Cons: There are no cons with this.
Other Thoughts: I have a 256 GB Samsung 840 Pro and a 840 evo 500gb.
There is no speed difference between them. The main difference is the EVO uses TLC and the PRO uses MLC. The MLC is more reliable and will last longer, but comparatively 10 years from now you will probably have upgraded again. I wish that I had just bought 2 500GB EVO instead of 1 evo and 1 pro. But i dont do a lot of writing on a daily basis.
If you buy this and install it and dont use the Samsung Magician, you may have a bad time.
