Pros: Fast for an SATA drive
Reliable. I have installed a LOT of Samsung SATA drives and haven't had one go bad on me yet.
Easy to clone with the right equipment.
Cons: The software Samsung provides for cloning data from your old disk does NOT support disks with complex partitioning. Things may have changed, but when I last had it fail it would only clone 2 partitions which isn't always enough.
Overall Review: Yes, I would recommend this product because of its performance and reliability. Zero failures in many Samsung SSD drives over 6 years (various models) makes them a comfortable and defensible choice for widespread deployment.
Overall Review: I deploy mostly these WD drives and Samsungs as my preferred NVMe drives.
Lately I have been using these more often because they are slightly cheaper, are fast enough, run much cooler, and have proven to be extremely reliable.
The Samsung drives are a little faster, but I find that they run hotter and they are often deployed in desktop systems where the slot is under the power supply and doesn't get enough airflow to cool them adequately.
Pros: APC makes good gear
The Powerchute software can be downloaded to set options and monitor performance
Like the USB ports in an emergency
Cons: No cons for me. It works for my use case.
Overall Review: I purchase these for use with desktops in which I have installed an SSD, since I don't want to risk corrupting the SSD if the power were to fail while it is writing and updating its map. They are about the right size physically and electrically for that task.
I have deployed a number of these of the past 3 years, and have had 1 failure (after 3 years of use).
Pros: Comfortable to type on.
Full sized keyboard makes 10-key fit OK with normal sized keys.
Solar will be good for most offices.
Cons: Can't get the user to give it up so I can have it :>).
None at this time. Haven't had it long enough to opine on durability, but Logitech has generally built adequate quality into their products.
Overall Review: Initial review is that I would recommend this product. I will probably buy more for other users as the need for new wireless keyboard/mice sets arise. Only quality issues would alter that opinion.
Pros: - Paired with Optiplex 7060 with I7 processors. Fast boot. Applications and documents launch instantly.
- More than with SATA SSDs, it is almost instant gratification.
- Disk clone from SATA SSD to this drive took about 5 minutes with Samsung Migration software.
- Was easy to install, but see minor Con below
Cons: - Doesn't come with a retention screw. I didn't expect it to, but Dell didn't provide a screw with their standoff post either :>(.
- Spoils me so that I may never be content with a standard SATA SSD again :>).
Overall Review: - Don't know about logevity, but I have always had really good experiences with Samsung SSDs.
- I put a heatsink on the unit, but their Magician software doesn't display drive temperature. That should be easy for them to add.
Just "feels" fast.
Pros: Easy Install. Clone software has worked flawlessly multiple time (Win 7).
Makes laptops much faster. Great tech refresh at a great price.
Has a reputation for stellar reliability.
Cons: None that I can think of. The performance is not at top tier any more, but it is good enough for the intended usage and all of the users have been happy with the upgrade.
Overall Review: I have installed about 20 of these, and every user has been pleased with the performance improvement. I consider the Samsung Pro line and the Intel SSDs to be the most reliable at this time, and none of the drives have had any problems up to this point. Have I mentioned that I value reliability above all when dealing with disk drives? Hate having to try and recover data from a failing/failed disk drive.
