Pros: Data Compr Not Required, Reliable and affordable
Cons: none
Other Comments: Installed in older laptop with SATA 2, but still big boost in speed. Based on reviews Samsung and Intel SSD's seem to have the best reliability record, which is more important than speed alone - they are all so much faster than hard drives anyway.

Review submitted for Samsung 830-Series MZ-7PC256B/WW 256GB 2.5" SATA III MLC Internal SSD (SAMSSD256)
Pros: SSD, Reliable, Fast
Cons: None so far
Other Comments: I bought Samsung 830 series SSD recently from Buydig.com coz they had the best price. Although, the price went down by $35 in about a week since my purchase:( Anyways, Samsung 830 is a SATA 3 device. I put the SSD in my old MB which only supports SATA 2 and the SSD was only recognized as 1.5 GB/s capacity drive during bootup. The SSD worked quite well though, improved the Windows Experience Index from 5.9 to 7.8. I have few empty PCI-Express x1 slots in my MB so I decided to get a PCI-Express x1 card with SATA 3 ports to boost the performance of my new Samsung SSD to atleast close to its maximum potential. I ordered a (SYBA SY-PEX40052 PCI-Express x1 Low Profile Ready SATA III (6.0Gb/s) HyperDuo SSD and SATA 6G HDD Controller Card ). Opened the card, installed it in one of the open PCI-E slot and plugged the SSD in. My BIOS recognized this card right away and also the Samsung 830, this time correctly as 6.0 GB/s capacity. The Windows Experience Index is now at a perfect 7.9!

Other Comments: I use the drive as my main windows bootup drive. Samsung 830 Series 256GB is an excellent really fast realiable drive. It is just too bad that there is not that much retail stores selling it in Canada anymore. I had to go to the US to buy one.

Review submitted for Samsung 830-Series MZ-7PC256B/WW 256GB 2.5" SATA III MLC Internal SSD (SAMSSD256)
Pros: More than enough space, Great performance
Cons:
Other Comments: I bought this drive to replace my OCZ Vertex system drive. The amount of space is great and covers anything I'll need to install on my machine. The performance is great and should last me a long time. The only con I have is the difficulty in copying the original system drive. They include Norton Ghost, but no key if you don't buy the kit. I'm no fan of Norton at all so I just ended up doing a fresh install.

Review submitted for Samsung 830-Series MZ-7PC256B/WW 256GB 2.5" SATA III MLC Internal SSD (SAMSSD256)
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: 7mm small height will fit any laptop/netbook Fast and reliable. 256gb capacity means I don't have to worry about space. The SSD Magician software it comes with will allow you to optimize your OS in order to increase the longevity of the drive. It will check your system and recommend that you disable defrag, disable indexing, it will check that the drive is running in the recommended AHCI mode, and it will recommend a few other tweaks. The software is amazing and lets you do TRIM on demand as well as run benchmark tests. There is an option of doing a firmware upgrade, but I have no issues with the drive and i did not do a firmware upgrade (if it isn't broken, why fix it?) I have not found any cons for the drive.

5 out of 5 stars   Samsung SSD is fast and priced well
By tablameister on June 11, 2012
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Samsung 830-Series MZ-7PC256B/WW 256GB 2.5" SATA III MLC Internal SSD (SAMSSD256)
Pros: reputable brand name, Excellent software, Fast, Competitive price, Reliable
Cons: none
Other Comments: Samsung makes a great SSD (this is my second Samsung SSD). The SSD is very reliable and boots up quickly - Windows 7 Pro boots up in less than 20 seconds so it is like having a tablet with a bigger screen and a keyboard. Samsung also provides excellent software utilities that take the hassle out of configuring the OS (Win 7) for optimal use of the SSD. Just select the optimize button on the GUI and it adjusts all the settings for you.

5 out of 5 stars   Better than Crucial M4
By Tony N. on May 31, 2012
Review submitted for Samsung 830-Series MZ-7PC256B/WW 256GB 2.5" SATA III MLC Internal SSD (SAMSSD256)
Pros: Reliable, Tier 1 SSD, Fast, Low power consumption, No freezing or halts, Super thin 7mm
Cons: A bit more expensive
Other Comments: I'm upgrading from a Crucial M4 which was experiencing constant beachballing/freezing during heavy usage. I installed this SSD in an Early 2011 13" MBP and it's been smooth sailing ever since. Not a single beachball/freezing with this SSD.
