SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC064D/AM 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: great feel,well made.
i had put this in a amd brazos e 350 lenovo B-575 laptop that was not so great under sandforce.
i dont get the sata 3 speeds HOWEVER this is not a samsung issue it is a across the board sata 3 lenovo on brazos issue.the ssd is the best one i ever tested.flawless experence with this is better then sandforce threw and threw but the brazos on lenovo is something i cant seem to nail down,it not the sata 3 vs sata 2 chipset as brazos has 3+3 because it happens in a x120 with the A50M.the more i use this the more i love this sdd and i have had many.boot times range from 22-28 reported by lenovo boot tool.on sandy bridge this ssd should wail like a banshe.there must be some hidden lock holding back full speed on brazos in lenovo but by all means it no way slow.very very nice clean feel to it with no turbo lag at it 100% worth the price without the extra software,thats is such a bonus and you will smile when you see the went out there way.

Cons: wont make my coffee taste better.
samsung you get 99.999% from me and i tested alot of ssd over the last 3 years.

Other Thoughts: i was mad at first when i spent hours working the what chipset is it and why no 350 plus speeds,i looked at power settings and every known tweek to sad when a chip maker makes a sata 3 chipset and it fails to live up to that standard.mayby it amd e-350 just dont push it,mayby it the A45 and i dont see it.mayby it some lenovo hidden bios this but iy NOT samsung that for sure.but i am still might not show it in the benchmark but the feel is outstanding!this 7mm height is a new format for the new notebooks,some allready have it such as lenovo X1,and you stuck with a slow intel choice,this works there.but it you wont be sorry.

Pros: 3/4 height.
solid case design.
norton ghost and ssd toolbox software.
desktop bracket.

Cons: 255/140 speeds in my lenovo B575 E350 brazos laptop.
this is less then older samsung model speed.
chipset is a M1 sata 3 so there no reason it should not run near full speed.
i dont expect the same exact speed as a desktop with a i7 as most reviews are based on but i do expect it to be faster then the sandforce adata it replaced.
i am waiting on a email from samsung surport so that be the real test.

Other Thoughts: the software samsung ssd magician looks really nice.
has tweeks for the os.overpostion,a self mode,firmware in both usb and windows update mode and complete pc data with export.
and also norton ghost and clone options aswell.
it feels more snappy now alot better feel then a sandforce.
the sandforce ran a solid 260 but was kinda power hungry and alittle twitchy,many installs probley.
i am looking into why it slow on a brazos laptop with proper power settings and i used even the newest amd sata driver .301 as well as the older one and msachi.
if the M4 are not effected by this then it a real letdown for this really nice design.
mayby it just too new or mayby its lenovo or mayby it defective drive.
some feedback from samsung would be great.

Pros: pretty box,3/4 height,comes with bracket,cables,software.

Cons: first it failed to install updates in windows over and over.
very every slow update install time,win 7x64 usb key was 15 mins normal ssd install time.
250 read,150 write by both atto and samsung bench on a lenovo B575 E 350 brazos notebook,the MC brand adata ssd did far better it was to replace,i do alot of ssd testing and installs/over 100 W7 install plus i done beta on ssd from way back and beta on win 7 so i say i am pretty expert here.
horible performance,i bought this as sandforce are power hungry.i am so let down wih this i should just went with a M4.

Other Thoughts: whats up with the DHL snail mail?why change a good thing new egg?
both the msachi and the amd achi driver had same results DOG SLOW!
so you know this is the M1 chipset that sata 3 not the D1 sata 2 so there no reason this should not open up.
new egg can you send me a swap please to be sure it not one bad drive.
