Mr. K., Newegg
8 November 2015
  • Summary: The only to programs so far that I have seen that actually benefit from an SSD are Trainz simulator programs, Minecraft, and Microsoft Flight Simulator X.

  • Pros: I bought the Samsung Pro SSD to replace the HDD in my gaming computer. The instillation was very easy and I did not have install any special drivers. Boot up and shutdown of Windows is really fast, but what is even better is the short time it takes to perform the monthly Microsoft updates. It's n...

fast and reliable

Phillip J., Newegg
7 June 2015
  • Summary: I was skeptical. I kept reading and hearing about SSD failures. This one is a "solid" model. Heh.
  • Pros: Been using this for 9 months. I build a primary desktop every 2 to 3 years. This was my first time to build with an SSD drive. This one was highly rated, so I took the gamble. Fast boots and quick Windows 8 response makes me a happy man.
  • Cons: cost, but I'm sure SSD drives will drop over the next few years

Excellent!

Matthew B., Newegg
4 May 2015
  • Summary: I have heard that some people are having issues after a firmware update using the Samsung Magician software. I have not installed this software, nor have I ever done any firmware updates. I'm not sure if this applies to my 256GB drive or just the 1TB drive I've seen comments on.
  • Pros: Fast write, fast read. Boot speed with Win7 only: 13 sec. Boot speed with Win7, SWTOR, Office, ACAD: 16sec. I have been writing/deleting a lot more than I thought I would and the drive is still going strong.
  • Cons: none so far.
