Fast and reliable Samsung SSD 250gb

2013-08-08
By Philip Castelino

Bought this to speed up my Asus i5 Laptop. The Samsung provided software to clone the old 500gb hard drive worked flawlessly copying the old disk to the new Samsung disk in about 30 minutes via a USB laptop connection.
Next I replaced the old hard drive with the new hard drive by first powering down, removing the battery and then unscrewing the hard drive bay cover on the back of the laptop. Remove the tiny screws and then slide out the old hard drive and replace with the new hard drive and putting the screws back in the same way as when removing them. If you are lucky your laptop may have 2 hard drive bays and you may be able to have both hard drives installed.
Next replace the battery and power up and then install the Samsung provided software to tune/optimize your new hard drive which can be done with the Samsung provided defaults which you may override.
I noticed that the laptop booted up in about 8 seconds instead of 20 seconds and the battery lasted longer by about 20%. Further all Laptop activities that required disk operations were very fast.
This is the 8th Samsung SSD I have installed and all work flawlessly. I have the 500gb and the 256gb pro although without benchmark measuring tools its hard to say how much faster the pro version is over the non-pro version. To me they are both about the same speed.

Blazing fast

I've been using a Samsung 830 and 2 840s in my MacPro as boot drives. They are all unbelievably fast in comparison with a 7200 rpm 32 cache harddrive. I chose the 830 as the main boot as it may be more reliable and durable than the 840s, but that may take years to prove... We'll see.

Like a charm

Just cloned the SSD with Acronis True Image 2013. It cloned without problems. Trial booted thru an Esata port to confirm accurate cloning. Installed in laptop which booted quickly and is loading programs quickly and quietly. Power consumption has dropped by better than 70%. According to Toshibas Eco utility current draw is down to 10 watts while loading programs vs. 30-35 watts with the OEM Toshiba drive.
The drive was a good price and was delivered faster then expected. Will buy from the store again.

Works as intended

By JVitner

Received my pair of Samsung SSD drives quickly as is typical of Macmall. Price was excellent. I have these drives installed in a dual drive enclosure in Raid 0 and attached it as a LAN drive. Seems to work fine. The drives were easy to install.

SSD reasonable price and fast

2013-04-18
By Alice Doc

Samsung 840 series SSD is reasonable fast, easy to install. I replace the HDD in my late 2008 Macbook unibody and used an Easydock device to copy my hard drive to the SSD after reboot with Mountain Lion on a bootable 8GB USB flash drive.
