  • 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

Drive crashed ater 5 months

  • Summary: I have installed it as my laptop (Dell Insprion) drive and it crashed after 5 months. Drive seems to be not recognized neither as externally (via USB) nor internally (eSATA). When I contacted Samsung support line they offered me to reset the drive (or get a new one if they find it not reusable) - nothing about data recovery...

  • Excerpt: По моему опыту, не дружит с ультрабуком Fujitsu UH572, или с используемым в нем контроллером/чипсетом вообще. Два подряд таких диска не опознаются BIOS, точнее вместо наименования модели показывают крякозябры, при каждом включении ноута - разные. И не загружается. В настольном ПК и переносном кейсе работает без видимых проблем.
  • Pros: Высокая скорость, низкое энергопотребление
  • Cons: Совместимость/надежность

Trop de soucis à l'installation et dans le temps

  • Summary: J'ai pris du temps avant d'écrire un commentaire, malgré le démarrage très difficile avec ce DD - le transfert depuis le DD existant ne s'est pas fait facilement, le logiciel fourni ne fonctionnait simplement pas, et après de nombreux échanges qui ont duré plusieurs jours avec le service client, un nouveau logiciel (celui initialement fourni) m'a été transmis.

  • Summary: Malheureusement, à ma grande surprise la panne totale et absolue au bout de 5 mois. N’est plus reconnu ni sous Windows ni sur Mac. VIVE LES SAUVEGARDES (MULTIPLES !!!) Puisque le produit est garanti 5 ans, Je vais maintenant m’attaquer au SAV Samsung (01 48 63 00 00), le délais de 30 jours pour un échange étant dépassé pour Amazon. Je vous tiendrai au courant de la suite ... A suivre ...
