No Hassles

Kenneth A. Attorri, Amazon

  • Summary: Pro: stable; great price; a definite improvement over mechanical drives; Samsung Magician software makes configuring your OS a breeze Con: SATA II; speed is not impressive for a SSD --- my Patriot Wildfire crushed it in Passmark benchmarking

Reliable but not the fastest

M. Wang, Amazon
15 October 2011
  • Summary: Samsung is considered by many online technology review sites as the manufacturer of one of the most reliable solid state drives. The main drawbacks of its products have been the high prices and the relatively slow speed. Even this latest model only supports SATA II and 250MB/s read speed.

Good Drive, but issues with Macs

PeterJames, Amazon

  • Summary: The drive is good and solid. However it has some issues with MacBooks (unsure if the issues are software or hardware related) essentially you get about 2x the performance with these drives under windows than what you do under MacOS. Works great under Windows 7. Fast, stable, low-power consumption.

Gut verarbeitet, aber nicht der Performancezuwachs, denn man erwartet.

  • Summary: Habe die Festplatte als Ersatz für meine mechanische SATA Festplatte eingebaut und Windows 7 Ultimate installiert. Meine Kollegen bewarben die SSD Festplatte als ultraschnell, gerade was den Betrieb von Windows angeht. Bisher bin ich von dem Performancegewinn etwas entäuscht. Booten (nach Bios Meldungen) ist nicht schneller geworden, obwohl auch der Rechner 500Mhz mehr hat als der alte. Alle anderen Bauteile wie Ram-Takt etc. sind identisch wie bei dem alten SATA System.
