5 out of 5 eggsFast Boot Drive

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: -Fast boot drive for CentOS 7.0
-Good read/write times
-Enough space for the OS and decent number of VM's on its own. If you add a second drive and split your VMs' storage use to utilize the SSD for the OS drives, one could get the better of both worlds.

Cons: -It's not 1TB at the same price :)

Other Thoughts: My current case(Lian Li) did not have 2.5" bays, so I installed it into a 3.5" with a single screw and let it float. Not a functional issue, but I wouldn't say it's what the manufacturer intended either. Wish they included 3.5-2.5 kits with it, but wouldn't consider it a con.

System setup for those that feel a review isn't complete without a list:

CentOS 7.0 KVM server
-AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5GHz
-Western Digital WD Green WD20EZRX 2TB
- BIOSTAR TA970 AM3+
-G.SKILL Sniper Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866
-Corsair HX500
-Gigabyte 5770 1GB(gross overkill for its role as HDMI console adapter ;) )

1 out of 5 eggsVery poor support

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I've bought this ssd drive from another retailer and it worked remarkably well achieving a read speed of 557MB/s and a write speed of 460 MB/s.

Cons: Unfortunately the Samsung Magician software "upgraded" my firmware and my speeds have plummeted to 370 and 230 MB/sec (read/write).

I've contacted Samsung support and their only suggestion was to format the drive...

If you buy this drive do not install the Samsung Magician Software!!
Or even better If you want a trouble free experience try another manufacturer.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic best bang for the buck

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Doesn't have w good place to sit in my computer case.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - 7mm (replaces other 7mm drives)
- Sustained Sequential Read and Write are about the same (not slower for one or the other)
- boots in seconds

Cons: - Not really cons, more like DUH
- BIOS configuration required
- Airflow required
- if you don't know how to setup a SSD, research, or don't waste the money. (that's what the bad reviews are)

Other Thoughts: Configure your AHCI properly, install SATA drivers during Windows Installation. Don't connect other drives until Windows is installed with all drivers.

5 out of 5 eggsNice SSD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Bought this over 11 months ago and have had zero problems with it meeting my expectations. This was my first SSD purchase and have been happy with my decision to (a) add an SSD to my desktop, and (b) go with the Samsung 840 Pro.

Cons: None. Just remember to leave plenty of free space on this drive and never fill it the max capacity.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Super fast; a great boost in speed from my 5400 RPM drive. From an aesthetic point of view, it looks pretty sexy.

Cons: Didn't increase battery life like the specifications suggested it would. The increase in speed has made the time my laptop runs more useful though as less time is wasted on boot and loading programs.

Other Thoughts: Got it on sale, definitely worth it.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very fast drive especially for the cost (I got mine on sale). Easily installed and running Windows 8.1 on it. Cold boot to Windows desktop after inputting password is about 25 seconds on my workstation

Cons: can get a little hot

Other Thoughts: I purchased a separate cooling/mounting kit drive bay for this as my case did not have the 2.5" drive bay. This mount has a fan built in to it so it helps keep the drive cool, I'm wondering if this may have been the issue for some people having drive failures. I should mention I keep my computer on 24/7 and never have had a BSOD

5 out of 5 eggsBought two for Raid 0 boot drive

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, cheap and reliable, I bought one of these to use as the boot drive for my home system, and it worked great. Started to wonder if two of these in a raid 0 config would be better, so I bought a second one of these and set both up in Raid 0. Once my system was reinstalled everything launches and runs faster.
Going from HDD to one SDD was a bigger improvement, but with two 840 Pros in Raid 0 pushes the speed of my system up a noticeable amount.

Cons: not any, except wish I had waited and bought at this price, the ones I bought were purchased locally for about $40 more
