SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This one works! This is an update to my previous review where my SSD was dead within a few days of use. I did the firmware upgrade like the last one and did a full zero out on the drive before use, as recommended by samsung support. So far so good, keeping fingers crossed.

Cons: 1st drive died in 3 days, did not expect that from a samsung product.

Other Thoughts: Backup everything and clone your original drive if possible before upgrading to this drive. New rating lost an egg due to first drive being dead.

SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Included clone software works fine.

Cons: Day 1 - Cloned older SSD, went flawless.

Day 2 - Windows stopped being able to sleep, first sign of trouble.

Day 3 - Got worried and started to backup disk since I already zeroed out the old OCZ Revodrive. BOOM! SSD is completely dead. BSOD. Cannot mount volume on linux or other Windows box, asks to format or gives unrecoverable read error, cannot mount last sector on disk. I have total data loss of my primary drive.

Yes I agree I am a gluttonous moron when it comes to "you should have backed up first." But I had assumed I would have at least a week before this thing would kill itself.

For those that are going to try and flame me, yes I popped the drive in and flashed the latest firmware before the drive clone. I have 2 more Samsung SSDs in box that I was going to use in my ESXi box, I am honestly worried about ever using a Samsung SSD and may try and return those as well.

Beware this drive, the idea of it and speed is unmatched. But how quickly it died greatly concerns me.

Other Thoughts: I came about 5 minutes to taking a sledgehammer to my rig because of this drive. Luckily my buddy Jack Daniels never fails me.

Intel BOXD525MW Intel Atom D525@ 1.8GHz (Dual Core) BGA559 Intel NM10 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Worked great when it worked.

Cons: Dead after 2 months of minimal use. Now if it does power on at all it does not recognize any ps2 or usb devices. Working on an RMA with Intel now.
