Overall Satisfaction with Samsung SSD

My organization has recently moved from laptops with standard SATA hard drives to newer laptops with Samsung SSD drives, primarily for data access response times and storage consolidation. Samsung's SSDs are quick, stable and cost effective and have become a consistent staple in our organization for more reasons than originally imagined.


  • Incredibly fast response times. Accessing files and opening large programs like Photoshop have never been faster.
  • Samsung Magician software can be combined with your computers available RAM to increase the SSD performance.
  • It's reliable. Most standard hard drives are prone to failure, partitioning problems, and increased lag times. Samsung SSD is not.


  • The Samsung SSDs are incredibly fast, but come at a high cost. You get what you pay for.
  • As reliable as they are, I'd like to see Samsung increase the warranty for the SSD.
  • The Samsung SSD is not inexpensive, but can increase ROI by eliminating maintenance costs and possible down times.
  • Samsung SSD will operate more effectively with newer hardware (Desktops/Laptops), which comes at a higher cost.
  • Samsung SSD increases reliability across the board, including in virtual workplaces where data is accessed remotely from a Samsung SSD.
Samsung SSD is a bit more expensive than other SSDs, but they have varying capacities at varying costs. Experience with the Samsung SSD has told me that it is a trustworthy SSD. Samsung is a trusted brand that provides necessary support for all of their devices. Originally, I bought the SSD for the brand, but the support has helped sell me completely.
The Samsung SSD is well suited for organizations/individuals who require programs that require larger amounts of RAM to respond quickly. I personally use my Samsung SSD to run the Adobe Suite, MS Office and even music programs such as FL Studio and its various plug ins. All in all, I'd recommend the Samsung SSD to anyone, but to those organizations/individuals who rely on speedy access to larger programs/files, this is the way to go.
