5 out of 5 eggsMust have for any PC, new or old

Pros: SSDs are FAST. You can look at videos of them in action on youtube all day, but you really can't appreciate it until you are using one. 7 minutes after I booted up from USB, Windows 7 was installed and I was looking at a usable desktop. I actually spent more time waiting for my laptop to boot up and become usable so I could grab the network drivers I needed to get my computer online! When it hit me that my old install of Windows Vista took at least 4 and a half minutes to become responsive after booting up, I knew my investment was worth it.

Windows boots in less than 10 seconds. If I didn't password protect my computer, I strongly suspect that i'd be looking at my wallpaper within 8 seconds of pressing the power button. Programs open immediately, even productivity apps like GIMP / Photoshop. It truly shines in any situation where your drive has to read or write non-sequential data.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: I was vaguely aware of the benefits of using solid state drives, but I put it off because I always felt they were too small, unreliable, and had a poor $/GB ratio. I cannot stress enough - if you are still using a mechanical drive as your computers primary storage device for your OS and most frequently used apps or games, it's time to upgrade.

Two years later, I still stand by my review. This drive has been a workhorse for me, even after leaving my computer on all the time and frequently installing / uninstalling games, the drive still shows no signs of failing. Windows 7 didn't utilize the drive to its full capabilities, the same exact computer on Windows 10 has actually improved loading times in some games. Maybe something was wrong on a driver level, maybe I just configured something wrong, who knows. The important thing is, even with the reduced life flash cells that this drive uses to cut costs, it's still perfectly fine for heavy consumer use.

3 out of 5 eggsworked until a month after 3year warranty

Pros: considering it was only used 2 or 3 days a week at a couple hours a day for the past 3 years i guess it did what it was suppose to.

Cons: the computer started freezing randomly even after a clean reinstall of OS, replaced this drive with a backup drive with no freezing issues. So this Hard drive i guess only has a 3 year life span not a second more lol... Buyers beware.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent SSD

Pros: 3 years later and still running like brand new. This is a fast, high capacity SSD that I use to run my system OS and my MMORPG's. System boots in 10 seconds or less, in-game loading times are minimal. I'm very pleased with this SSD.

Cons: System didn't immediately recognize this drive, but this issue was easy enough to resolve.

Other Thoughts: This was my first SSD and I couldn't be happier. I have bought several SSD's of different models for my additional PCs and for family members.

3 out of 5 eggsslow writes

Pros: quick reads, silent, reliable

Cons: incredibly slow write speeds, far less than advertised. My cheap barracuda writes far faster on both sequential and random, despite being on a slower sata port. And so does my 830.

Other Thoughts: this thing works, and the lack of noise is great. The migration utility is great. But the write speed is seriously disappointing.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked for 19 months

Pros: I switched over from a traditional hard disk to an SSD and I shaved over a minute off my boot time, not to mention the massive speed-up from those first-time loads of software. I love, love, loved this SSD. The free Samsung Data Migration software available online was also very easy to use and effective. Overall it was a 5 eggs purchase, especially when it was on sale.

Cons: The only downside is that 19 months later it died. Total bummer. However, it's still under its 3-year warranty so I'm sending it in to Samsung to see if they'll fix/replace it.

Other Thoughts: Always back up everything, no matter what.
