SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Rated #59 in SSD

Pros: Speed and size, relatively..

Cons: Price/Size

Nothing wrong with the drive, and frankly for the quality and size/money POV, Samsung has the consumer SSD market sewn up with very few exceptions.

But it's not nearly as fast as I thought it would be. It benches just like it should, but going from one of the fastest single disk drives (raptor) to this, there
was an improvement, but it wasn't to the degree I was expecting. I don't regret the purchase and maybe my expectations were too high, but for a 2 to 3x increase in R/W
speeds I really was looking for a bit more.

No matter though, it's fast, it's neat, it's big enough I don't have to pay too much attention as long as I keep movies and games and crap on one of the other
ole spinny disks I have in here. Other than my own naive expectations, zero complaints. But after a few weeks with it, I'd have bought another raptor or three
and gone hardware RAID instead for not much if any more money and had a ton more room.
