This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE1T0BW 2.5" 1TB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Really fast at first, lots of SSD space
Cons: There's an issue or something in the drive, hopefully in firmware that causes old files to be super slow (under 50MB/s). If you check out either reddit or the overclock.net forums, they are documenting the issue. Until Samsung releases a fix, DO NOT buy this drive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: If you can get these drives to last a month, they seem to be okay. Has a lot of the 'NAS' features -- i.e., reliable query response times and compensation for drive vribration
Cons: Super high DOA rate. I was looking to get 4 drives over the course of a couple of month. Two out of the four I bought were DOA.
Other Thoughts: Do NOT accept any fault in these drives on arrival. Even if you notice the temperature is running above average, I would recommend RMA'ing it. WD's quality control must be abysmal for this level of DOA's to occurREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked out of box, has all of the features I need for my FreeBSD/ZFS fileserver.
Xeon E3-1220 V2 (Ivy Bridge)
2x Kingston KVR13E9/8HM
LSI 2108 Chipset Raid Card (flashed to be a non-raid adapter)
Cons: A tad expensive for the tech, but it's a server board so that's expected.
Also, you need to make sure you get the right type of RAM (ECC Unregistered). Some folks say the RAM is picky, so I'd recommend checking out the compatibility lists to save yourself some time
