Reviews and Problems with Samsung 830 Series (MZ-7PC)

A great SSD
29 April 2013
Summary: After doing extensive research, I settled on the Samsung 830. It cost about $80-$90 more than the cheapest 512GB SSDs on the market but all of the cheaper models had very mixed reviews with quite a few reports of drives that died quickly. The Samsung 830 had perfect or near perfect reviews on Amazon and several other retail sites like Newegg.
Bought to replace a traditional drive that went bad.

Summary: If you have an old machine that was slow but meets the min requirements for windows 8 and has a bad hard drive, then don't wait buy today, that's what I had and now the machine screams. Fast boot and is like a brand new machine. Not the fastest when you compares to other drives on the market but if your not putting in a brand new box you can't beat it. Samsung makes great SSD's I have had it for about 4 months now with no issues.
Summary: I needed more space, I installed this one, and I couldn't be happier. I do not notice any difference in speed from the stock ssd. If you have never had an SSD, I highly recommend it. It is the single best thing you can do to speed up your computer. If you can afford it, well worth the extra money over rotating media.
Summary: -Indispensable cuando queremos agilizar nuestro notebook. Uno piensa que el problema siempre es el procesador o la memoria y realmente se da cuenta la importancia en la velocidad del acceso/escritura a disco, recién cuando experimenta con una unidad de estás. -La recomendaría a todos mis amigos y conocidos, de hecho ya lo hice.
Summary: The Samsung 830 is one of the most trusted & reliable SSDs in the market. Sadly, as of this writing, it's been discontinued and increasingly harder to get. The new 840s aren't as good, and the 830's true successor, the 840 Pro series is more expensive. If you can still find one of these, pick it up while they last. My own 830 arrived (eventually) to replace my dying system HDD.
Summary: SSD's are young, they seem to have tempers. Samsung is considered high quality all throughout the interwebs. what? 2-3 months I've had it? still works like a charm, mind you that that's not a very long time. Hook it up and fill it up, on windows 8 just like that! None of the hassle of having to read or learn about it at all in order to operate it. How can I complain?
Summary: I've been computing for 30 years, built my first Heathkit in 1983. Since then, as tech has marched on, I've experienced probably all the calamities as we've moved up the performance ladder. The Samsung 830 SSD is the first time I have had trouble-free, and I mean absolutely trouble free, operation. It's been over a year now (15 months). My new build has 5 256GB Samsung 830s, including the OS (Win 7). I have had not one single blue screen.
