Pros: To begin, the current price @ $114 Cdn is cheaper than the $99 U.S price I've seen elsewhere, so thats awesome. This drive formated no problem on my Mac and shows as a full 2 TB drive. The extra storage is a great complement to my 512 GB SSD. I've installed the HDD in a drive caddy where the optical drive used to be, meaning I now have 2.5 TB of internal storage. Performance is more than double of my previous 1 TB HDD with sustained reads and writes benchmarking at over 120 MB/s.
Cons: None to note
Other Thoughts: Yes, I will recommend this drive to anyone looking for a large capacity laptop HDD.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very good cost/gigabyte ratio, performance is md level, but I knew this going in. In the end I have a great performing computer with decent capacity fast storage.
Other Thoughts: The new 550 cost a little more but on paper anyway performs a little better.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TD250BW
Pros: No issues installing in my 2011 Mac Mini, performance is excellent.
Cons: Disappointing the Samsung does not offer a method to update the firmware for Mac users. They do have a half baked install via CD/DVD method, but it DOES NOT WORK...
Other Thoughts: Despite firmware update issue, I'm quite happy with the purchase. Dear Samsung, please offer native support for Mac users ASAP.READ FULL REVIEW
