This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO 2.5" 750GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TE750BW
Pros: Two big pros:
1) The drive is amazingly fast. My system gets to the system login screen in a screaming 8 seconds. Then after entering the password and hitting enter, the system and all the "run-at-login" software is running in 3 seconds there after. AMAZING!!!
2) The cloning software is very clean and the system took the cloned disk was seamless. My cloning took a total of and hour and thirty-three minutes to copy 287 GB of data.
** I'll be purchasing another drive for each of my other systems **
Cons: None thus far.
Other Thoughts: I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Y580, and the transfer for the cloning was done using a Kingwin ADP-07U3 (SATA III to USB 3.0 adapter, which was not up to the USB spec).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: KINGWIN ADP-07U3 USB 3.0 to SSD & SATA Adapter
Pros: Product seats well into SATA 2.5" drive and has a solid connection, likewise the USB 3.0 cable is solid and while slightly inflexible it does operate as intended.
Cons: Definitely not USB 3.0. It does run at a full USB 2.0, but no chance USB 3 even when accounting for connections and overhead on single connected device.
Other Thoughts: I had read the reviews ahead of the purchase, and this is a great price for my use, cloning a HDD to SSD.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price was a big decider for me on this purchase, but I found I was able to maintain performance while observing my value orientation. My mobile workstation came with an irregular (1x4 GB and 1x2 GB) RAM allocation. I work a lot with full-sized and multiple Virtual Machines. So I need the RAM volume to enable my work environment. I've been using G.Skill RAM in my machines for years new, and find their products very stable, fast, and value oriented.
Cons: None Thus Far!READ FULL REVIEW
