5 out of 5 eggsCrazy fast

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: -Crazy fast, use it on a gaming build
-Windows 8.1 boots in about 10 seconds and is already ready to go
-Quick responses, loading times you barely have time to notice
-So far, haven't heard a noise
-As for most SSD does not really heat
-The software is very user friendly
-Probably the best price/quality ratio you can get on the market right now

Cons: None, I think the price is very well worth it.

Other Thoughts: Looking for a gaming build? How come you still haven't bought one?
Faster than my old kingston SSD.
Will stick with samsung from now on most likely.

3 out of 5 eggsNot what I expected

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: No noise, obviously. Easy to install.

Cons: 256gb drive only has 238gb of useable space. Seemed like a lot of overhead to me, so just be aware.

Other Thoughts: Haven't really used the drive yet, but cant see a difference in load times or anything.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat fast drive

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great speed. Best drive on the market. Buy one you will understand. Beware of people like Matt saying to defrag a SSD. Horrible advice. It's not how flash memory works. Using TRIM is how you keep it up to new speed. Defrag and you will kill a ssd. Shame on you Matt, seriously dude????

Cons: None but beware of the advice of defrag of a SSD unbelieveble anyone to do such a thing.

5 out of 5 eggsFast

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Super fast in comparison to a regular hard drive

Cons: Price I guess. I did buy this on sale though so it was a pretty good deal.

Other Thoughts: Over all, it works great. Haven't had a problem yet (knocks on wood)
My case allows me to see my ssd and its aesthetically pleasing too.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the best drives out there.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Amazing speed.
Good warranty.
Well-supported by Samsung.
Prices are dropping since the 850's came out.

Cons: Can't think of a single one.

Other Thoughts: Got one of these for my FX-8350 build, the WEI primary hard disk rating of 7.9 was the first of many pleasant surprises.
The drive comes with some nice support software.
I liked this one so much, I bought another 256GB and a 128GB drive.
I'm using the 128GB as the boot/OS drive in a portable LAN party system. The other 256GB drive is in my stash, just in case I need one in the near future.

5 out of 5 eggsSamsung 840 pro MZ...BW 256 GB

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very fast and good, easy to install, replaced 2 HDD Raptor 10 000 rpm in raid 0 for SSD and great upgrade, ssd hit 7.9 with Windows perf. analyse. paid 160$ for, it's a good price for this range of quality.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: If you really need the sata- usb cable be sure to select the good model, the''BW'' come w/o cable.. look for ''LW'' or laptop bundle kit.
Also be sure to upgrade the Samsung prog magician before clone your old drive..

5 out of 5 eggsMatt

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast.
Rapid mode makes it quantum fast.

Normally up to 540 MB/s read.
Rapid mode up to 3200 MB/s read. I think that SATA cable is saturated now.

Cons: what the critics say, what the techs say. Maybe you should read a bit before saying what you should and shouldn't do with solid states

Other Thoughts: 1.) don't believe anybody that tells you you shouldn't defrag. Windows sucks at this process. Defrag it and you'll pick up performance. This is the the 6th solid state i've worked on and performance has only gone UP with defraging.
2.) Rapid mode... wow. I thought getting 540+ mb/s was good, along with the 90000 mb/s for random. I enabled rapid mode, everything went up. I got 3200 Mb/s sequencial. A 600% increase. my random went 10,000.
3.) please read the SSD endurance articles. I've got 1.12 TB written to this thing and i have absolutely no worry about it's endurance. They've managed to write 1.5 petabytes and the Samsung 840 Pro series is still in the running. That's why i got this sucker. Even with my defraging and writing i think 20 GB a day, I don't have to worry about it dying any time soon.
They say 2 TB is the limit, or 20 TB is the limit.. if that were true, my last work computer would have showed signs of death as it was at 17 TB.
