Rated 5 out of 5 by Silence is Golden My 2 year old hybrid drive, a 750GB SSD/HDD started to fade, so I knew it was time to get a new drive. I checked around and liked what I read about the Samsung 840 EVO at 1TB. I ordered one and in just 2 days I was ready to try my first true SSD. I restored my backup on to the SSD and I booted up Debian (wheeze) in just a few seconds. Everything is very responsive and fast. Next, I setup my two virtual machines with Windows 7 and Windows XP as guests. This is where the 840 EVO is really amazing. Booting my virtual machines only takes seconds, but they run so much fast than before. Even faster then when I dual booted Windows 7 with the old hybrid drive. The best part of using the SSD, there's no noise. You can hear a pin drop in my office now. One more thing. Remember to activate trim or fstrim in cron.daily and set swappiness to 0 and/or remove swap space. Likewise in your virtual Windows machines, turn off scheduled defragging and remove/set your paging to 0 bytes (no swap file). November 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zoomin' This is my first SSD, and i figured I'd notice an improvement. Wow! I am blown away! I've only had it for a short time, so I can't speak to how hardy the unit might be, but it is surely the best thing I've done for my computer! It was easy to install, moving my OS and programs, etc. from the old drive was practically effortless with the included software. It's a bit pricy, but i would surely buy another given half a chance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Features - the best out there at this time My first SSD - incorporated it into a new build - Have used WD VRaptors for years and really like the speed and reliability of them...................However, I'm still in "shock & awe" with the performance of this SSD. Very easy to install - good instructions and great software. June 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ideal Upgrade for older Laptop I have an older i7 Laptop. Installing the Samsung EVO 840 TB SSD improved system performance and the temperature of the system is also much much cooler. Samsung magician and copy software worked easily and only took a small bit of time to clone my original drive and upgrade to the new SSD. Excellent investment. June 19, 2014
