Pros: I bought the Samsung Pro SSD to replace the HDD in my gaming computer. The instillation was very easy and I did not have install any special drivers.

Summary: I bought 10/13/2014 and it's said: Warranty Limited Warranty period (parts): 5 years Limited Warranty period (labor): 5 years So, I'm asking for new replacement SSD the same or full refund Thanks
Pros: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series worked very well during 9 months and now is dead as a brick.
Cons: Died in 9 months while just browsing the web I got a blue Screen and the drive was never seen again by the OS or in the motherboard Bios , dead as a brick
Summary: I was skeptical. I kept reading and hearing about SSD failures. This one is a "solid" model. Heh.
Pros: Been using this for 9 months. I build a primary desktop every 2 to 3 years. This was my first time to build with an SSD drive. This one was highly rated, so I took the gamble. Fast boots and quick Windows 8 response makes me a happy man.
Cons: cost, but I'm sure SSD drives will drop over the next few years
Summary: I have heard that some people are having issues after a firmware update using the Samsung Magician software. I have not installed this software, nor have I ever done any firmware updates. I'm not sure if this applies to my 256GB drive or just the 1TB drive I've seen comments on.
Pros: Fast write, fast read. Boot speed with Win7 only: 13 sec. Boot speed with Win7, SWTOR, Office, ACAD: 16sec. I have been writing/deleting a lot more than I thought I would and the drive is still going strong.
