fast

Jason B., Newegg

  • Summary: I find I load into games way faster than other players, however 120gb did not turn out to be enough, wish i went for a larger drive, otherwise, wicked fast.
  • Pros: super fast read speed. pretty fast write speed.
  • Cons: 120gb is not enough

Got this to test in a HTPC lon term

Andrew L., Newegg

  • Summary: "So far so good", as a man who jumped from a skyscraper was heard saying by other office workers near windows on descending floors as he fell towards the concrete. *Fingers Crossed!*
  • Pros: Fast, Cheap, Small, Lightweight. Windows 7 media center runs like a dream on it, everything is easily 100%-200% faster than it would have been if the OS had been running on a 2tb seagate 5900rpm drive. Samsung has yet to dissapoint me on their Pro line, so I figured I'd give this a go.
  • Cons: TLC is still not proven for reliability yet, and by the time it's long term characteristics are known, the drive or technology itself might be phased out, but I hope it's comparable to spinning discs in the long run.

Good, but

Michael T., Newegg
27 February 2015
  • Summary: The drive has been reliable all through my tinkering. I wish the Samsung software had come with the Mushkin, because then I would have learned the needed adjustments instead of an RMA false ending. . Kingston also offered starter software, but that was it.
  • Pros: SSD control software that came with the drive was expecially good for learning how to get the most performance with your SSD.
  • Cons: When new this drive would register 7.8 from WEI, 7.9 is what had been expected. A year later it is 6.9. With Rapid Mode enabled, it now reads 3275 read, and 2558 Write. Nice high numbers but, the WEI was only raised up to 7.1. Aside from the numbers, it never has been as snappy as a Mushkin SSD f...

Stellar boot times

Earl D., Newegg
17 January 2015
  • Pros: Going from a pure HDD build to this SSD is an amazing difference. My boot up times are blazing fast, and write speeds are extremely satisfying.
  • Cons: The reason I only gave 4 stars is because the software that Samsung packages was giving me memory leak problems, and was not worth the headache it provided.

Not terribly disappointed.

William J., Newegg
6 January 2015
  • Summary: Along with the speed not quite being up to par on benchmarks, this thing is much slower than my previous SSD. I'm managing to get to my desktop with everything fully loaded at about a minute or more, and that's right after a clean Windows install.
  • Pros: It works. It's sorta faster than a HDD.
  • Cons: Not up to rated speeds. About 360mb/s Seq Read, and 220mb/s Seq Write, with maximum IOPS of 59k Read, and 23k Write. Still quite the delay that's not to be expected when opening programs.

  • Summary: I read all the reviews and I wanted to add my experiences. I have a Laptop that already had Kingston 240 GB SSD installed. I also had a Hard drive in the laptop as a secondary drive. I used The Samsung mIgration software to clone the Kingston to the Samsung SSD. No problems with the cloning.

Cable

Jeremy C., Newegg
11 November 2014
  • Summary: Is it cutting into your margins so much, Samsung, to not include a sata cable in the box? How else am I supposed to connect it to things. Sure, I could be replacing something that will have a cable I can use, but I'm not doing that.
  • Pros: SSD speeds way better than any hard drive I've owned
  • Cons: Doesn't come with Sata cable.
