Summary: Before I purchased this drive I read many reviews. A lot of them boasting read speeds of ~500 and write speeds of ~300. This is what prompted me to buy this drive. Come to find out, once it's installed and benchmarked, I'm getting reads at ~500, writes at ~100. What a complete and utter let down. I'm extremely unsatisfied with this drive and regret the purchase.
Summary: There is a huge difference in performance and speed with Samsung SSD. It takes mere seconds to boot up and shut down. Opening programs like Photoshop which took 10 seconds before now takes only 2 seconds.
Summary: I bougth this SSD because my HDD Laptop Crash. Since I put it on my Laptop I didn t recognize... Is it my Laptop...!? moves quickly, start in 25 seconds.. etc...ect.. I am just blame myself for not get the 250Gb one, but that another history ($$$) Guys just get it... I surely recommend this upgrade for any Laptop... and goes for 250Gb at least..!
Summary: It makes a strange buzzing noise unlike the product description. If you just google "samsung ssd noise", you can easily find out that the reputation of this product is overstated. And samsung need to clearly explain about this buzzing noise, otherwise change your product description!
Summary: this is the only way to go - put this as your c: drive and load all your apps/programs here - no need for the extra 4gig hdsd card as a ready boost - this is lightening fast - i have 16gigs of ddr3 ram - with all the ddr3 u can get your machine will run super fast
Summary: Worked so well on my Desktop PC that I bought one for the laptop! Only reason I gave it 4 stars was because the Migration Software didn't work but I'm going to try a drive cloner program to get everything switched over.
Summary: After replacing my Media Center's drive with this drive, it boots up at least 5x faster and everything is very snappy. I purchased a second one for a brother in law who was about to replace his PC with a new one. After installing and putting a fresh build of Windows 7 on, the PC feels brand new again with 10s boot times for an older Q6600 machine. Highly recommended drive.
Summary: There are a lot of technical details that you could spew out about this drive. But let's get to the point. It's FAST. If your tired of playing the waiting to load game, upgrade or build with this Samsung SSD. Samsung has many great features, among most important, a name you can trust.
