Great while it lasted

John T., Newegg
17 December 2014
  • Summary: I had to use Kingston SSD to save me this time.
  • Pros: Bought it in April 2014, worked well for the last 8 months and decided to not cooperate first week of December. To be honest, I switched over from Kingston because I wanted to try the drive out. Heard about the read/write speeds. Now I guess I am gonna just go back to Kingston and RMA this product.
  • Cons: Ran the performance restoration tool, reinstalled windows OS, however the SSD just wouldn't run normally. Windows would occasionally freeze or just wouldn't boot. I had a few backup windows images and I even tried restoring the different images to the SSD to when they last worked. Again, the resu...

User Review

Andrew P., Newegg
14 December 2014
  • Summary: At this point, I would just like my money back for the Samsung SSD, so I can buy from another manufacturer.
  • Pros: It looks nice.
  • Cons: Bought the ssd, because my primary drive went bad. Since I had an ssd before with only my OS I figured I would just put in the samsung and just install Windows 7 from scratch via USB. For the samsung ssd it would not complete the installation. I know it wasn't the windows install on the usb becau...

Broken

Sterling S., Newegg
3 November 2014
  • Pros: It's an SSD.
  • Cons: So, after ordering this to install my OS on, as life is, I got busy and didn't actually get to do it until a couple months later. It was a total failure. The SSD sounds like a racecar getting ready for the race (lots of revving that is louder than my velociraptor HDD) and then my first installati...

slooow

Gary Kelly, Amazon
1 November 2014
  • Summary: My drive was slow. Not up to the advertised speeds. Tried to install Samsung enhancement software but it said not available for my drive. Also noticed some other features were not available. Last resort I pulled the drive out and ran serial number on Samsung website.

Old data = huge slow down

Richard G., Newegg
19 September 2014
  • Summary: The problem with the old data has been confirmed by hundreds of other users. Samsung has been silent on the issue which is a huge issue. Based on their lack of support, I will not recommend Samsung to anyone until they actually provide some level of support other than "we can't confirm this issue.
  • Pros: Cheap, and starts out as fast as advertised
  • Cons: Once the data has been on the drive for a few months (2-6) the read speed drops from 400-500MB/s to 30-50MB/s. I have to defragment my filesystem so all of the data is re-written and then the speed goes right back to advertised speeds - for a few months. Samsung support is USELESS.

Cannot Function At The Moment

Mason B., Newegg
16 September 2014
  • Summary: It's very rare that I leave a negative review, but wow, way to reach a new low. It's pretty bad when I cannot use the equipment. Even when I did get the cords to hook it up, the drivers are so glitchy that they refuse to install. In other words, as far as I know, I cannot use this.
  • Pros: Well, it is a Hard Drive.
  • Cons: Doesn't come with the needed cords, and Drivers which allow it to be detected as a hard drive to not work.

Samsung Software Nightmare

redricer, Amazon
17 May 2014
  • Summary: After reading the positive reviews of the Samsung Magician and Cloning software, I purchased the Samsung Evo 840 120GB desk top kit. This was a Mother’s Day gift for my mom’s old Acer Aspire x1800. She still uses Lotus 123 so I wanted something clean and easy to move her old software over.

NO SUPPORT!

Sylvain F., Newegg
2 December 2013
  • Summary: Buy Another Brand!
  • Pros: Seem to works as advertized, for now.
  • Cons: Can not upgrade firmware and told by Samsung Canada that NEWEGG.CA is NOT a valid distributor and Samsung DOES NOT SUPPORT SSD DRIVES and getting no support from the states neither!

AVOID ALL SAMSUNG EVO SSD's

M. Jacobs "Mark Jacobs", Amazon
19 September 2014
  • Summary: Samsung have been making SSD's for a few years now. They have just brought these "EVO" drives out using a triple NAND arrangement for the storage cells. This has brought down costs and opened the market up for the home enthusiast. HOWEVER, there is a problem with the firmware on ALL EVO SSD's.
