Samsung 470 (64GB, SSD)

 

Priced at a whopping $700 for the largest-capacity version, which caps at a mere 256GB (it's $280 for the 128GB version), the Samsung 470's top-notch performance only helps create a painful conundrum: you want it so badly yet at the same time you have...

Samsung's 470 solid-state drive (SSD) is light and good-looking, and offers great performance. The drive supports the traditional 2.5-inch design and works in any application where other SATA hard drives with the same design are used.

The Samsung 470 SSD is significantly more expensive than traditional hard drives, and its storage capacity caps at only 256GB. The drive doesn't support the new SATA 6Gbps data transfer rate.

If you want something that's fast, energy-efficient, lightweight, and durable, and don't mind the hefty prices, the Samsung 470's outstanding performance will make it worth the investment.

Samsungs quality and the great performance are obvious.

 

We reviewed the product at www.thessdreview.com and it was one of the strongest contenders we have had. Great results!

The product may be Samsungs first consumer offering but it is going to give Intels release one heck of a run for its money. It performance is great

Cost is high still for all larger drives but this will change

"Hard to beat"

 

I would buy the product again to tune up an older sata II notebook with standard 5400 rpm HDD. You can't go wrong. And my battery lasts half an hour longer.

amazing fast with win7 64-bit especially system start, office applications, sata II notebook most likely beats standard modern desktop pc's in terms of speed and IQ (energy, etc.) with this HDD

could be some more metal workmanship, it's just a feeling issue, can't complain about durability

Price barrier hard to pass

 

We all know: TIME IS MONEY! Unfortunatelly time earned by using this device is far too expensive! I'd buy this for less than 120$!

Nice to have speed boost of your sistem. Worth to install OS onto, and critical applications also

Not nice the lack of new SATA III standard ; Think is just a time matter
