good and bad

charles v., Newegg
9 August 2014
  • Summary: I was kinda mad that i had to buy an adapter tray. considering this is the pro series i thought it would just come with everything since the price tag is so high. instead it only comes with the disk and a software cd its not a bad drive really but ill be buying the corsair force drives from now on.
  • Pros: -it has a sleek design -its about as fast as the corsair force I have in my other pc. -I got it on sale for $98 i think. -came with software
  • Cons: -somewhat small drive, and you have to cut your data to less than 100gb to use the migration software -no screws -no adapter tray for towers -no sata cable -migration software was way out of date, have to update it before it will let you transfer an installation from a bigger drive. it worked aft...

Striping Samsung 840Pro SSDs

Curtis H., Newegg
22 July 2014
  • Pros: Speed is great, but...
  • Cons: I purchased these two Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSDs with the intention of striping them (RAID=0) for increased efficency with very large data sets. Samsung, however, does not support RAID, which feels a little like I was misled. Samsung's Magician software (which comes with each SSD) does not even r...

Samsung 840 Pro 128GB

Robert B., Newegg
27 June 2014
  • Summary: Called Samsung and they immediately sent me an email for RMA replacement info. They said I would then get a shipping label and a one day turn around. I am glad about that but as with any failed hard drive I will have to pay again for the operating system (win 7 in this case).
  • Pros: Fast start up. Fast processing. Quiet. Very happy with this ssd until it failed.
  • Cons: Lasted 7 months then on startup the dos screen said it didn't recognize any drive. Removed unit, connected it to adapter unit woth usb cable and plugged it into another computer and it didn't recognize it either.

Hmm can I do better....yes.

Audy V., Newegg
20 June 2014
  • Summary: Companies are going to have to accept that we the customer are going to set the pace of what we want and not what they want us to purchase otherwise we are going to see more products online sitting until the price is accepted by the customer.
  • Pros: It works. The boot up is phenomenal. Game loading great. Im convinced but.....
  • Cons: For you gamers this isn't the card. It fills up very quickly and with OS, antivirus being resource hogs well you get the idea. This SSD is priced accordingly to get you in to the I want a bigger card, no correction I need a bigger SSD drive. The larger SSD drives in the pro are a little overprice...

Somewhat satisfied

Dennis P., Newegg
9 June 2013
  • Pros: Did fresh install of win7 professional and loaded all drivers. Flashed bios and set sata to ahci. I did all manufacture recommended tweaks for maximum performance. Used software that came with it (Samsung Magician) to benchmark and it tested a little better than specification. This thing was real...
  • Cons: After a week the sequential write dropped from 520 mbs to about 270mbs and the random write went from 88000 to 4762 (IOPS). No matter what I do it always benchmarks poorly at writing. The drive only has 73 Gb used and 404Gb free. If I get this drive operating properly I will change my egg rating ...

  • Summary: Installed on XP. Worked fine until I removed or installed new software, then the file system became corrupt. Happened twice. Installed on win8, works flawlessly. I cannot explain why the XP install messed up, possibly because it was a migrated install from a regular HDD.
  • Pros: Fast, good samsung software for data migration and drive testing
  • Cons: Questionable reliability?

  • Summary: You can get this for $140 elsewhere with free shipping. NCIX does have sales on this item in which they may throw in a free game download (Assassin's Creed 3).
  • Pros: Very fast. Arguably the best SSD out there for the money.
  • Cons: Expensive. Especially on NCIX.
