  • Pros: It's very light, has very good performance, I loved how much it can handle at once, but of course it is a "Pro Series" so it would make sense
  • Cons: It only had one problem, but I think it was only just for me it was very unstable at some points. For instance it just stopped working, and it took minutes to turn back on

Samsung 840 Pro

David K., Newegg
16 August 2014
  • Summary: This Samsung SSD was easy to install. However, I don't see any difference between the Pro series and Samsung's standard SSD's in terms of noticeable performance. I wouldn't spend the extra on the Pro series again.
  • Pros: Easy to install.
  • Cons: Paid too much.

Better performance and transition than expected

John B., Newegg
16 May 2014
  • Summary: You can get two of these and build a RAID0 -- or use even more drives for the same approach. But it's not so worth doing for several reasons. With chipsets and BIOS updates of Z68 and later, you have Windows TRIM support for a standalone SSD under RAID, and possibly for multi-disk RAID...
  • Pros: There are several makes, models and sizes of SSDs to choose from, and the prices have dropped to make it a feasible choice over HDD boot drives and ISRT configurations of an HDD and small SSD. The "enthusiast community" has been touting the Samsung models at least since the arrival of the 830 mod...
  • Cons: At this time, I'm going to drop my rating by one Egg, which is really quite lenient. Even if you register the product and create an account at the Samsung web-site, the e-mail link for tech-support doesn't work. You cannot submit questions. Others have noted getting a run-around with phone suppor...

Great Product

Scott D., Newegg
22 March 2014
  • Pros: This drive is, simply, incredibly fast. It will be a huge upgrade to any HHD system. Also, was easy to install along side my current HHD and then simply copy my stuff over.
  • Cons: Does not come with disk mounting tray. Wasn't an issue with me, seeing i don't buy poorly built stuff, so my laptop had a two sided tray already with extra screws to mount, but others may have issues. Dropping one egg for this overlook by Samsung.

Awesome is an understatement...

  • Summary: The 840 Pro replaced the OCZ Vertex 3 SSD. While I didn't think it would make much of a difference, it did. The already fast Windows 7 and programs perform better than it did with the OCZ SSD. Not my view, it's coming from the end user of this system.
  • Pros: Fast, very fast.
  • Cons: No mounting bracket included or SATA cable included. Come on Samsung...
