SAMSUNG 840 EVO mSATA 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-MTE120BW
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Nice Cache Drive for IRST 02/06/2014

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO mSATA 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-MTE120BW

Pros: Easy to install in my HP ENVY 15t-j000 Quad Edition for a Cache Drive. Functions Fast when running benchmark. It does get around 500 read and write when used as a Cache in IRST.

Cons: Does not come with small screw. You must order Laptop / notebook screw kit to install in mSATA slot. I wish Samsung would supply it. Can not use RAPID mode or the Samsung Magician for a cache drive. You are limited to use 64gb for the Cache. I am using the max as a cache.

Other Thoughts: I am Shure if you wait a little it well go down in price as the 2.5" EVO has done. If you have a fast system with a slow HD then you are bottlenecked at your HD. This would fix the Bottleneck so you would have a fast system.

Seagate ST1000LM014 1TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Low Benchmak score 01/29/2014

This review is from: Seagate ST1000LM014 1TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Laptop SSHD Bare Drive

Pros: It functions. It could be nice maybe with the addition of a Cache Drive.

Cons: Slow next to the 2nd Gen. They should of kept it at 7200 rpm and added more SSD and or higher density hard drive platters.

Other Thoughts: Had the 750 momentus xt 7200rpm in my HP DV6t-7000 Quad Edition and it was much faster. Now I have this new 5400rpm in My HP ENVY 15t-j000 Quad Edition and you can really feel that it is SLOW next to the 2nd Gen. So if you need large storage and faster speed get a 7200rpm and add a 64GB mSSD cache.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Laptop Memory Model F3-1866C11D-8GRSL
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Does what they say. I get 1864MHz CL11 PnP 1.28v. Passmark memory score went from 2301 with the OEM Samsung 1600 CL11 to 2508, CPU score went up from 8703 to 9081. So they help and function. HP ENVY 15t-j000 I7-4700mq HM87. No problems.


Other Thoughts: Tried the 2133 but ran at 1866, so don't waste your time and money getting the 2133 unless you have setting in your bios you can set.
