Amazing hard disks... Extremely fast
2 weeks ago
Summary: I would definitely buy again those hard disks... and would prefer more space. I would suggest at least 2 x 256GB considering the prices dropped during the last year too.
Pros: - Read at 1000 Mb/s with 2 x 840 EVO in RAID 0 - Work perfectly with bitlocker encryption for the main disk with Windows 7 x64 - Windows 7 totally loaded in less then 1 minute - Totally silent and do not heat - Always first on a Battlefield 4 server when switching map
Cons: - Small disk space(256GB in RAID 0) and can only install 2 games considering games takes like 50GB+ and Windows is installed on those SSDs with all my main programs
Summary: If you plan on using this as your main Operating System drive, just do a fresh install. Backup anything you want onto another Hard drive and fresh install. Trust me.
Pros: Had this for almost 2 years now as my OS/Specific game titles and it runs like a champ. I partitioned 10% (Recommended) and haven't had any issues. Computer still boots in less than 20 seconds. Good stuff Samsung.
Summary: Read a lot of complaints about the slowing down of this drive with old data. I don't notice and don't know how you can notice since SSDs are so fast. I don't keep old files on this anyway. For the price it is still at, it's not worth it.
Pros: Been using this since 2013. Just got a new X99 MB and using it at sata3 speeds from a sata2 MB. Write and read speeds are 10MB above the max. Booting up the Win 7 logo doesn't even have time to finish.
Summary: When I ordered the SSD it almost took a week to verify the order. A week!! A few days to ship afterwards. I wish they did it more promptly. They have great customer service though; wouldn't mind contacting them again.
Summary: Action Packaged Inc is the worst seller on this market place junk Newegg has implemented. Not only did they send the wrong item, which was supposed to be the Samsung 840 EVO, I got the 850 EVO.
Pros: I got a free upgrade from what I ordered... now read the con
Cons: Even with the 'upgrade' I was still charged $100 more than the product is actually worth
