-quiet (makes little working noises when read/write but otherwise silent)
-it hasn't failed
Cons: -it's now 180 bucks. i got it at 100
-931 GB formatted isn't technically a terabyte but it's good enough
Other Thoughts: I've had this thing as a data and program drive alongside an ssd C drive, and it's awesome. I'm using about 300GB of the 931 available.
I thought it'd be slow, but i'm getting 120MB/s seq read and write, 512KB random read 76 and 132 write, 4KB random is 0.728 read and 1.465 write, and 4KB (QD32) 1.870 read and 1.594 write. That's pretty darn good compared to drives a few years ago.
Photoshop/lightroom launches instantly. games are quick.
A year and a half, and strong. Very happy with this drive. I'd buy another.
Pros: -low cost, great value
-good size 23.8inch
-IPS!!! :D awesome accurate colors!
-very slim and good looking
-magnet on the base (i use it to hold mouse weights)
-buttons and menus are decent
Cons: -5ms is noticeable in games, but not a big deal
-60hz is not as smooth as 120 or 144 hz monitors, but you get ips colors instead. I think it's worth it.
-Whine for the first few months of use (see other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: Games still look great on this monitor despite 5ms and 60hz!
-- I noticed that on bright white pages, the monitor would make a quiet, high-pitched whine. This went away after a few months of use. Not a deal breaker.
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Cons: -it doesn't have 20 terabytes of storage, boo hoo
Other Thoughts: I use this in my gaming-tank-of-a-pc to store my large games like bf3, bf4, skyrim, etc.
All load times are incredibly fast!
I got this for about 80 bucks, which is such a deal!
If you don't have one of these yet, get one.
They'd also be great for upgrading a laptop to an ssd.
