Impressed

Christopher R., Newegg
17 February 2013
  • Summary: Definitely make sure you switch the SATA to AHCI in the BIOS. Increased WEI score from 7.4 in IDE mode to 7.9 in AHCI mode. Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.
  • Pros: Incredibly fast. Perfect 7.9 Windows Experience Index, excellent benchmarking scores, very quick boot up (less than 10 seconds easily). Plenty of memory - not sure why I even have the other hard drive. I guess because I can.
  • Cons: Occasional blue screens on start up. Occurs whether my other hard drive is plugged in or not. Never experienced a blue screen with the other hard drive (or any other computer build for that matter). Tried a complete OS reinstall, but still see blue screens every few days or so.

  • Summary: I've own an Intel 330 and crucial m4 ssd drives, and now this samsung drive. Works as advertised, and the 830 series has a good reputation which is why I made the purchase. In all honesty, however, I don't see very much difference between the different manufactures, so I would just purchase...

Great SSD

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Great drive for the price, if your coming from a slower drive it will be night and day!
  • Cons: While fast, I haven't seen much, if any of a speed change from my VelociRaptor, there might be some milliseconds of difference there somewhere, but i'm not finding it. If you need space and speed and don't need to worry about noise or heat, i'd stick with a Raptor, price per GB is much better and...
