Excellent drive

MShoukry, Amazon

  • Summary: This is an excellent SSD, I replaced the HDD of my Toshiba 630 laptop. I'm using windows 7 and was board whenever I need to do a start up for the system or reboot. With this SSD the reboot is extremely fast and launching application as well.

Good so far

Neuromancer, Amazon

  • Summary: Plugged it in and it worked flawlessly. Very quick boot times. Windows 7 has all the drivers, etc built in so it is very simple. Make sure you set your BIOS to AHCI as with all SSDs, preferably before installing new copy of windows 7.

Great product, increased performance in PC

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 September 2011
  • Summary: This summer, I was looking into buying a new computer, but $1000+ dollars were out of my price range. So I looked into other upgrades I could do myself, and going to an SSD was one of the most recommended. After much research I decided to take the Samsung 470 series, as it had the best reviews and the price was reasonable for an SSD. Installation was extremely easy, done in 15 minutes.

Must Have!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
2 September 2011
  • Summary: A definite must have for gaming. These SS Drives are super fast. No more HDD drives for me. I'll only use HDD drives for storage till the prices really come down on the SS Drives. This is my second one with zero problems so far. Can't wait till I can purchase a 3 TB SS drive for around $300.

Blazing speed.

J. Chun, Amazon
1 September 2011
  • Summary: Perhaps I should have made changes one by one, but I was somewhat short on time to do a lot of experiments, so I just went ahead and made all changes at once: Windows XP x86 to Windows 7 x64, 4GB RAM to 8GB RAM, 7200 RPM mechanical disk to this shiny SSD. The difference is simply amazing, because the moment I push the power button to the point when everything is loaded and ready to go (I put a lot of things in Startup) was reduced significantly.

So far, pretty amazing. Best upgrade ever?

Trent Steele, Amazon
28 August 2011
  • Summary: I always felt that RAM was one of the best upgrades you can do to your computer. The SSD finally dipped into a price range that was good for me, so I picked up this unnecessarily shiny Samsung drive because I heard good things and liked the numbers. Now, I'm not so sure that RAM is the best upgrade. There's definitely a little configuration needed to bring your computer up to speed.

Love it

605AR!5, Amazon
20 August 2011
  • Summary: Put this bad boy in my ASUS G74 and it does what it's supposed to: make everything fast. Start ups noticeably faster as well as shut downs. Programs open fast and it's pretty quiet. 128 gigs won't get you to far though so make sure you have another drive for music and such.
