The Amazing Difference

By ITman0u812 from Savannah, GA, USA on 05/14/2015


Pros:

Performance

Cons:

None

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been into computers for over 20 years and have built and repaired quite a few of them. I have always thought that the whole SSD thing was a fad like blue ray and would disappear eventually. Or would not be as popular as they are. So after buying a gaming laptop and finding it had a feature as a MSATA port. I decided to do some research and figure out a MSata drive that would work well with my Laptop. I didn't realize there was quite so many. So I started digging into specs and compared them all. I finally came to a conclusion to try the Samsung 840 EVO MSata 250g. And Boy was I amazed at the boot time difference and the speed of running and opening normal applications. I literally am ready to go in windows 8.1 pro in less then 5 seconds even though stuff is still loading in the background. I was completely floored with the performance increase in just switching to a MSATA. So I decided let me go bigger and see how this works. The only MSATA drive out there that has 1tb of space that I could find was the Samsung 840evo MSata 1tb. So after a really good experince with the 250g I went and bought the largest one I could find and this drive is amazing. Now me being a IT tech I went ahead and tried some other brands as well. But not to mention any other brands. I was displeased with the performance on several of the others. They just didn't seem to compare to the Samsung 840evo 1tb or the 250g. I am switching every drive that I run operating systems on in my house to samsung evo's . They are really amazing!!!!!

Excellent

By Domdym from Maine, USA on 11/05/2014


Pros:

Fast

Cons:

Expensive For Some

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I replaced the original 256gb Samsung MSata with this 1TB EVO840, I have seen an improvement in performance even though they were both Samsung and both MSata. i would suggest evo to anyone who can afford the price and want the fastest read and write and almost zero seek time.

By Journeyneverends from MA on 09/24/2014


Pros:

Easy Install, Fast

Cons:

Pricey But Prices Are Coming Down Some

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

this is a great drive and comes with some great software.. The Migration tool allows for connection with a usb port ( Not supplied in package had spare SATA-usb cable) and then using the Migration tool it copies the drive and puts a complete working system OS on the new drive.. Turn the computer off exchange the drive and wham boots in 5 seconds to a nice working computer.. No formatting and losing information.. Just smooth transition to the new drive.. Thanks Samsung..

Almost all there . . .

By obieephyhm from Minnesota, USA on 06/12/2014


Pros:

Decent Installation Instructions Included, Top-size In Category, Durable, Compact

Cons:

No Screws Threaded To Match Holes, No Mounting Bracket

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was skeptical about the claims of increased boot/processing time by switching an older pc into using an SSD. I also don't like experimenting on my DAW (digital audio workstation) which needs to be highly stable for studio use. But a major meltdown of it's primary drive (combined with some unfortunate personal circumstances) forced the situation; so I bit-the-bullet and picked one up on sale through Amazon. Pros: Wow! The short version is, yes - it is amazingly fast and it has been (for the first four months) amazingly stable. I bought one with more capacity than strictly needed but the audio-visual world is constantly expanding so I'm pretty sure this is going to last me/us awhile. Installation was largely easy (see comments, below) and with a little planning for disk-migration, the transition was mostly flawless. Although, for the record, these are better accompanied by a 'virgin' o.s. install, it is quite possible to upgrade without the hassle of re-installing everything. Cons: One, and it's kind of a nit but not really and is best summarized in two words to Samsung: Mounting Hardware. For the price paid (even on sale) some sort of universal drive adapter plate so it can be secured inside a standard drive-bay would be appreciated. Along with screws that fit the few mounting holes that are supplied. I got a 3rd-party 'universal' plate but it wasn't -- however, with a bit of Dremmel-modding, I fashioned something that worked. Still, would another .50 cents in manufacturing costs be out of line just to make the end user's life a bit easier?

Samsung SSD drive does not with Samsung notebook

By RickyC from Los Angeles, CA, USA on 03/28/2014


Cons:

Does Not Work With Samsung Series 9

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This drive does not work with the Samsung Series 9 notebook NP900X4B. Sad that this top of the line ssd will not work with their top of the line notebook! The BIOS does not even recognize the drive!! Hopefully it is a simple firmware fix.
