Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD Review
26 June 2013
Summary: Excellent Performance- read, write- sequential/random, doesn't matter. It has a very low access time and a noticeable application load. 7mm thick formfactor in a light metal casing with 5 years warranty and no health degrade even after host write of 26TB.
Summary: With the series tied, one-to-one we had to get the Samsung 840 Pro 512GB in the lab to see how it compared to Vector 512GB. This article has a bit of historic means once you factor in the new technologies coming in 2013.
Summary: Not long ago we published our 840 Pro 128GB review and compared it heavily to OCZ's Vector 128GB. In that review we gave a solid thumbs up to Vector in that capacity size. When it comes to the 256GB capacity size things are quite a bit different. Here the nod goes to Samsung and the 840 Pro.
Summary: The Samsung 840 Pro is an excellent evolutionary improvement over the company's previous-generation 830 Series SSD. The included five-year warranty underlines Samsung's confidence in their new product, and the thin 7 mm form factor makes this drive a perfect match for Ultrabooks.
Pros: Very high performance, Improved steady-state performance, Supports TRIM, 5 -year warranty, 7 mm thin - Ultrabook compatible
Summary: Many people are buzzing about the Samsung 840 Pro, but we think the drive has a split personality. This is an approach several companies are actively working on and we'll see more of it in 2013.
Excerpt: These days, you can find a good 128GB SSD for around $100 and a 256GB SSD model for $200, both of which will run circles around the fastest hard drive. However, not all solid-state drives are created equal.
Conclusion: We've been staunch advocates of SSDs for some time here at HEXUS, and we maintain that once you've experienced the speed and silence of a solid-state drive, there's no going back. Add an SSD to almost any system, and you'll witness a performance increase that no other single component can provide.
Excerpt: With prices plummeting further every week, it's a great time to invest in solid-state storage. Although the market seems flooded with SSD options, there are really only a few relevant controllers used today, and they come from SandForce, Marvell and Samsung.
