Horrible Warranty Support!!!

Greg C., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • 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...

Works great while it lasted.

Danny N., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • 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.

Can never go back to HDs

Kobbe H., Newegg
29 June 2015
  • Summary: Overall a great buy and I'd pay for this speed over and over again.
  • Pros: -Super fast speeds now for my windows OS -Can shut down and restart in moments -Reliable, easy to install, and great for key programs and games -included software is just a bonus
  • Cons: -120 gb is pretty easy to fill up, but it's enough for the necessities. It's pretty expensive to jump up to 240 gb, but it's an option if you feel the need.

SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Aaron S., Newegg
20 June 2015
  • Summary: Great product, I just wish I would've gotten a bigger one
  • Pros: Pros: Very fast boot ups. Have had this for over a year and formatted it twice with no problems whatsoever.
  • Cons: Cons: Not really a con but it's only 120GB so I can fit my OS and a couple games on it before it gets full.

Perfect

Quin D., Newegg
18 June 2015
  • 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...

kyle w., Newegg
16 June 2015
  • Summary: This won't stop me from ordering another though. I will no doubt get mine replaced (as it is within the 3 year warranty). I will certainly buy a new one at some point but I will no doubt go for one of the Pro series as they have a longer warranty of up to 5 years.
  • Pros: This drive has been absolutely fantastic. I can boot my computer from bios to loading programs in about 10-15 seconds (and that's only because I have to type in a password). This drive has really been great while it has worked.
  • Cons: Ok. Where to begin? Well, my computer froze up once a day ago and since then it has been downhill. I have owned this drive for about 2 1/2 years and this is the first time I've seen it acting up. I should note, I have my OS running off of this but (thank Cthulhu ) by sheer luck and stupidity on m...
