Hello everyone! I just bought a samsung 840 evo 120 gb and installed the windows 8.1 OS in it. People have told me that the difference in speed during the Pc's startup time, game loading time etc were incredible. The problem is I am not seeing a big difference. my motherboard doesnt support sata 3 so the ssd is connected to a sata 2 slot. I havent really done extensive testing to compare the speed so it might be in my head maybe... I used a benchmark program to see if it was just me. Are these results normal? There seems to be a big difference then the benchmarks I have seen... can using sata 2 make that much of a difference or is there something wrong? Thanks in advance.

Das sequentielle Lesen/Schreiben könnte etwas schneller gehen, ist aber noch ok. Entscheidend für die gefühlte Geschwindigkeit ist die im Vergleich zur HDD extrem kurze Zugriffzeit und die stimmt auch hier. Wenn Dir der Rechner langsam vorkommt, muss da was anderes falsch sein. Mach den Test mal mit dem Samsung-Tool.


Thank you for your reply! I dont speak German and I have no idea how I have managed to install a German version of the AS SSD program :p  Thankfully google translate gave a very clear result of what you said. I'll try the Samsung tool then and report back.

Samsung Magician at least shows you, if the AHCI mode is enabled, if the latest firmware is installed and helps with the os optimization. Check your bios setting, if the sata port and/or AHCI setting is not reported correctly.
