Adding an SSD is a very good way to breathe new life into an older computer!

Summary: I built my desktop Windows machine in September 2007, and although it is still going strong with four 1.5 TB Seagate hard drive in a RAID configuration, with only 4 GB of RAM (and less than that accessible on a 32-bit version of Windows Server 2003) it had hit a wall for the database development I...
Summary: This should have at least been a 4 if not 5 start product, however our experience with their warranty department has turned this into a 1 start product for us. At this point we are no longer selling Samsung brand SSDs to our clients, and will continue to use other vendors SSD drives until they can...
Pros: Normally these are very fast drives. There is a well known read performance issue that can occur over time, normally this can be fixed using the Samsung Magician tools. We have deployed a number of these drives with mostly good results
Cons: We are finding the RMA process for warranty support to be absurd! We have spent the last month trying to get 2 defective drives replaced. Both drives suffer the same issue, after about 6 months each started to have horrible write performance, less than 200 MB/sec and only around 5,200 IOPS. Using...
Summary: The only thing Samsung got me on is the $$ per GB for their SSD lineups, but so far it is proving to be more of a headache than it's worth.
Pros: Works great while it lasted. Software was useless to me. Price was in a good range.
Cons: Failed after 5 months of use. Good thing was it didn't completely fail. It would work for about 2 minutes before it cause a blue screen. Enough time for me to back up my data...rinse and repeat. this is the second Samsung SSD drive that had failed on me.
Summary: Purchased this in Sept 2014, Died a week ago, file I/O errors, had the latest firmware, Samsung Magician says the drive is Good and Health is fine, but windows blue screens 0x0000007e. cloned it to a Seagate 250GB Notebook drive and windows boots fine.
Summary: Samsung's tech is some of the best in the SSD world, I highly recommend the EVO series.
Pros: I've been using this SSD as my OS drive for almost 2 years in my gaming rig. Super fast read and write times, I'm getting about a 7 second startup and a 4 second shutdown with my Windows 8 setup. It's definitely worth moving from older hard disk drives to the new flash solid state drives. The Sam...
