Solid & Dependable 5/28/2018 1:55:51 PM

Pros: Installed this drive in my Toshiba Portege laptop in December 2014 and it is still going strong as I write this in May 2018. Never a hiccup! It significantly improved the boot time, battery life, and overall performance of the laptop.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Highly recommended! Alas, it now appears as "Out of Stock" and "Not available" in the current NewEgg lineup...

Revived laptop 12/7/2015 8:41:58 AM

Pros: Easy to install, great performance. Brought new life to my laptop which is now more responsive and much faster booting. Probably the most worthwhile upgrade one can buy.

Cons: none.

Worked GREAT, for about 1 year 3/27/2015 1:16:34 AM

Pros: Wait, I may find one.



Doubt it!

Cons: "This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500LW 2.5" 500GB TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Notebook Bundle Kit
Pros: This arrived today at 3:30. I physically installed it by 4.40. Started W7 install, (yes, I did a fresh install, instead of copying stuff over) took me 25 minutes to get on the internet, on the new drive.

Cons: Mine doesn't cook bacon, either! Dang it!!

Other Thoughts: The install CD (DVD?) is still in it's shipping envelope. Never even tried it.

On the other hand, can that adapter be used as an external drive adapter, like for any other SSD drive?"

And, this one is dead! That above, is my post after I got this drive. Currently, it is a 3 ounce paperweight. (And, doesn't do THAT job very well!)

Samsung, ball is in YOUR court!

DO NOT BUY 3/24/2015 9:09:20 AM

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: There is a bug with all 840 EVO SSD's from Samsung. Read performance on this drive slows to less than 50mb per second after a few months. Samsung released a "Fix" in October 2014 but it isn't a fix and only restores drive performance for a couple of months at best before needing to re run their "fix".

The fix works by rewriting the entire contents of the disk which can't be good for the SSD lifespan. In addition, the fix cannot be applied if your controller is in RAID mode or the disk is configured as Dynamic disk. The fix process also takes 6+ hours on a 1tb drive.

Overall a complete waste of money.

FAST and Only getting Cheaper 2/5/2015 8:11:14 AM

Pros: Fast is the only thing that can be said about this. The difference from anything spinning is crazy. Silent. Cost is finally down to less than 50 cent per gig. They also fixed the speed over time issue by a fair amount.

Cons: Not a real con but they brought out the 850 Evos right after I bought this :(

Overall Review: The 850's are out but still I believe the 840's will go on a pretty good sale in the next 6 months to get rid of them because the 850's use a different NAND tech.

Shame on you Samsung 1/12/2015 12:13:08 PM

Pros: Initially, very, very fast

Cons: - severe performance degradation over time/use of less than 3 months
- subject to Samsung EVO read/write performance bug
-- firmware 'upgrade' from Samsung does not resolve issue, period
- Samsung SSD support is - to put it succinctly - garbage

Overall Review: With SSD technologies reaching speeds that are fast approaching (if not exceeding) the bandwidth limits of the now aging SATA III interface and mSATA and SCSI 'Ultra' not being any faster, it is starting to appear that a new interface is needed. That having been said, the current 'better' option is to use PCI-e 2.0 and up slots for SSD's. The problem here is that PCI-e SSD drives are not overly common and therefore garner added expense that is truthfully unwarranted and unnecessary.
On another note, Samsung has been especially close-lipped about the sub-par long term performance of the entire 840 line (Pro and EVO) that this performance bug affects, probably because they're too busy marketing the new 850 series. Knowing Samsung (and I do, I used to work for them) the 840 line has likely already been EOL'd (internally only; they'd never admit this to the public) and production on those units has ceased. As is always the case with Samsung, once production on a line of product has ceased, they no longer care about the actual performance or reliability of the product, merely the public perception. And Samsung, like Apple and Intel, has found that if you keep your mouth shut and pay websites to bury bad press, it will all go away. And yes, they actually do this.
