SAMSUNG 830 Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This was a great drive for my ASUS G75VW. I wanted to get a good drive for my new laptop and this drive out performs my SSD IDE OCZ REVODRIVE. Windows doesn't even have time to form its logo before I am at the login screen.

Had no problems with installation of both Ubuntu and Windows. Everything went smoothly.

As a side note, I perform daily builds of the Android OS on this drive and have been extremely satisfied with its performance. I highly recommend this drive to anyone that needs lots of IO.

Cons: I have no complaints with this drive.

Pros: Never had a problem with this power supply and it more than encompasses my needs. Been running all day everyday for more than a year straight and haven't had any issues whatsoever

Cons: None that I can see.

OCZ RevoDrive 3 series PCI-E 120GB PCI-Express 2.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) RVD3-FHPX4-120G
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This is a good drive, and it performs well.

Cons: It performs but wasn't what I was expecting. The overall boot process takes quite awhile because the controllers have to spin up and initialize(this to me was extremely annoying). I was really looking for something that has a faster boot time and cross platform support. I have yet to get a Linux distribution to work with this drive, only Windows.

Also, I have noticed greater performance out of my Samsung SSD through SATA 3 than with this drive. I guess if you were raiding multiple cards together it would work out better but for the price its just not worth it.

This drive was also complicated for me to get Windows running on. I can't remember how I did it but I had to preload drivers while installing just for the drive to be seen to install on.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for an IDE drive specifically and understand all the circumstances then this is for you. If you just want an SSD and can do SATA then save yourself some frustration and time.
