durable performance

  • Excerpt: durable performance is an apt description of this drive. I have ordered dozens of them at this point over the last 18 months or so and have had no problems so far.

Customer Friendly SSD

  • Excerpt: Samsung Magician software is constantly updated and very customer friendly to use, appealing to all levels of customer technical expertise from inexperienced to "expert". In operation, the SAMSUNG SSD outperformed several of my own tests of read and write speeds for other vendors competitive offerings. At the time, Samsung was more expensive than competitor products. I bought Samsung. System boot times were incredibly fast.
  • Pros: Durable
  • Cons: Expensive but good

  • Excerpt: It does not have a built in blender which would be useful for my margarita parties, but as far as hard drives go, it works great!

Short-lived

JPhoto, Adorama
19 May 2014
  • Excerpt: As a photographer, I purchased this wonderfully large and fast 840 Pro as a screaming replacement for the boot drive on my laptop and to launch/run computationally intensive apps like Photoshop. I hoped that by using a solid state drive, I could accelerate my workflow while ensuring great reliability in hardware. All worked well for about 4 months, after which the drive's boot sector became corrupted and unable to launch anything on the laptop.
  • Cons: Poor quality

Fast drive!!!

  • Excerpt: When I purchased this drive, about a year ago, it was quite expensive... A little less than one dollar a Gig.... But at the time, it was one of the fastest drives available. I am still using it today and it hasn't missed a beat. Great drive and now that the prices have come down, I might consider more of them.
  • Pros: Fast
  • Cons: at the time price

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 configurations, but in the latter case -- only with BIOS and IRST-software updates.
  • 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 models a few years ago.
  • 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 support.

Really Solid

Chris A., Newegg
28 April 2014
  • Summary: I am using a Supermicro M28SAB 8x2.5" in 2x5.25" bay hotswap rack which has 2 iPass (SFF-8087) connectors and 2 power connectors. I am connecting the rack to an LSI 9271-8i RAID card. The 840-Pro's are the only ones that display drive activity, the OCZ's are either solid on, solid off, or solid RED because they've failed. Samsung 840-Pro are the only way to fly. I made a post on the OCZ forums, you can search for Pin-11 MrFreshly to read it if you want any more info.
  • Pros: I've been using these in a RAID 6 with an LSI-9271-8i card. They've performed perfectly. The 840-pro's DO generate drive activity on Pin-11 so they are friendly to many hotswap trays. OCZ's aren't or weren't.
  • Cons: none

  • Excerpt: This product came with transfer software (no cable) and it worked like a charm. It was easy to use and was fast. You will need a SATA/USB transfer cable.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable
