      Take any older PC, it could be as old as an Intel Core 2 Duo-based machine and install this SSD into it. Sit back and watch the computer take off like a rocket! Obviously, this SSD is going to have the most benefits for a notebook PC since notebook hard drives seem to scrape the bottom of the barrel when it comes to performance numbers. But it will most certainly help improve the performance of your desktop as well. The biggest bottleneck in today's PCs isn't the CPU or the RAM, it's the hard drive. They simply can't keep up with the Input/Output demands that we are putting on them. I have the 250 GB version of this SSD. I have Windows 7 and a mess load of programs that I use often installed on the SSD as well. Why? Because this SSD makes everything lightning fast. Boot-ups are fast, program launches are fast, everything is fast! This SSD is like a rocket!

      I love this drive. It is really fast. Loads Photoshop really quickly. This drive has been working well for 5 months except that I can't find anyone who has been able to boot Windows 7 from it. The solution has been to seldom shut the machine down. When rebooting I insert the system disc into the DVD player and boot from the disc. The speed and energy efficiency of the drive is well worth the minor inconvenience of not being able to boot up. Also, the SSD uses less electricity so the battery lasts a lot longer. I wish Samsung had disclosed that this drive cannot be used as a bootable drive before I purchased it.

      Wow - startup speeds like a laptop should have

      By gManRocks

      from VA

      Comments about Samsung 840 Series 250GB 2.5" SATA III (6 Gb/s) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD):

      Replaced a 7200 RPM laptop drive with this. Wow, the startup time for windows 7 was cut by more than half. Less then 27 sec from power button to login. So fast the little Windows chimes aren't even played all the way through before getting cut off. Only weird thing is when I used the Magician software I had to do it twice. It failed just at the very end. Restarted the process and it worked. I also had this problem with the 120G version I bought of this drive.

          SSD memories chips are not all the same. This uses TLC memory chips that are degraded faster by read/write cycles (About 10 Mbytes per day)

              Five years ago I bought the top of the line, most expensive and fastest machine on the market. By todays standards it is slow. I really like the machine and never had any issues and decide to give it a new life. Just during boot up of Windows 8 ( I know, Ugh!) I instantly could tell the difference. I write a lot of software. The software applications load in a snap instead of sitting there watching an hourglass. Couldn't be more pleased.
