Samsung SSD 840 Pro 256GB review: the fastest SSD currently around
24 September 2012
Excerpt: If you thought that we had gotten the most out of SATA 600 SSDs, think again. In a brief time span a number of new records were set in terms of SSD performance. Samsung thinks it can go even further with the new SSD 840 Pro that's being introduced today. This new SSD series is supposed to be faster than all other SATA 600 models currently on the market, and should also be suitable for professional use.
Conclusion: While our review of the Samsung 840 Pro may be a bit late but with updated NAND, additional features and being rolled out in the last few months, this is almost a brand new drive. And what an SSD it is. Despite boasting an internal architecture whose age can be measured in years, Samsung created an adaptable drive that isn’t even beginning to show its age.
Excerpt: Samsung has worked hard to earn its share of the SSD market, and its 840 Series drive impressed us, although it wasn't quite able to match our favourite drives for speed. Samsung's latest drive leaves the mainstream behind and is intended for enthusiasts in need of excellent performance. Inside, it's a mixture of familiar components and new technology.
