Exceptional Performance for Professionals
With Samsung's 840 PRO Series SSD, everyday tasks on your desktop or laptop PC become faster and more responsive, providing workstation-class performance for seamless video editing or the ultimate gaming experience.
The 840 PRO is capable of delivering quick sequential read and write speeds--up to 540MB/s and 520MB/s respectively--for ultra-fast file transfers. In addition, the SSD features exceptional random speeds with 100K IOPS (read) and 90K IOPS (write) for the fastest real-world performance*. And it provides superior write performance for non-compressible data like images, music, videos and .ZIP files.
Engineered for Reliability and Security
The 840 PRO Series SSD is made to provide consistent, excellent performance through its entire lifetime even under extremely heavy workloads. Like all Samsung SSDs, it is designed and built completely in-house at Samsung using the highest industry standards and advanced Samsung memory technology. And, as with other solid state drives, the 840 PRO has no moving parts, which means no hard-drive spin-ups, no noise, and superior data protection**.
The 840 PRO allows you to keep up with demanding workloads while safeguarding your data. Advanced AES 256-bit ATA full disk encryption provides worry-free data security. And the 4th generation Samsung MDX controller technology and firmware ensures long-term sustained performance under the most punishing conditions.
Thin, Lightweight Design and Low Battery Consumption
At only 7 millimeters thick and weighing just 2 ounces, the 840 PRO Series SSD has a sleek, lightweight design that can make your laptop lighter to carry.
And because it contains no moving parts and features an ultra-efficient design, it consumes little battery power, allowing you to enjoy up to 50 minutes more of laptop battery life than a standard hard disk drive (HDD) or other solid state drive (SSD)***. It also supports Device Sleep mode for Microsoft Windows 8 and Haswell chipsets, which helps reduce overall power consumption.
Magician Software for Easy Maintenance

This drive is a bit expensive (at the time of this review), but that is to be expected at this point. I purchased it elsewhere for a slightly better price and I did not hesitate buying it on the first day it was released. I also purchased a Silverstone SDP08 Bay Converter for it which fits nicely in my Asus case: SILVERSTONE SDP08 3.5 to 2 X 2.5-Inch Bay Converter. Regarding the software that comes included on the CD, Samsung SSD Magician always indicates there is an updated version when there actually isn't...strange, but the app works fine nonetheless. Their Data Migration software isn't included on the CD but is available for download from their website.Read more ›

If you are thinking about upgrading from an existing SSD, depending on your usage, it may not be worth it. But if you are going from a traditional HDD, go for it. You won't regret it.
The packaging for this is minimal but seems efficient. I ordered from Amazon and they put the drive (which comes in a package the size of a CD case) in a larger box with some padding.
As far as installing the hardware into my desktop it was super easy. Mounted and plugged it in and it was good to go.
After double-checking to see my BIOS was set to AHCI mode for my SATA ports, I popped my Win 7 DVD in the drive and restarted my computer for installation.
Windows recognized the drive just fine and after making the few selections necessary it started to install.
This was the fastest installation of Windows I've ever encountered. I wasn't timing it directly but I'm pretty sure it was completely done in about 20 minutes. That's from initial "Start Installation" button click until the final reset where it boots up and you can actually start using windows.
After that, installing programs seems to be slightly faster but not that much faster than normal.
Copying files is waaaay faster. I copied over 20GB of files from my old Win install so that I could format the drive and replace them. It copied them over within a few minutes. Copying them back to my spinning-disk drive took a bit longer of course.
===== Expectations and Performance =====
I bought this to transfer Win 7 Pro and my games (mainly GW2, Diablo III, and other similar games) over to for better performance. So far it has been markedly faster but not as mind-bogglingly fast as I had built it up to potentially be.
As far as Win 7 Pro goes, I did a fresh install and after all the updates it now loads in probably less than 30 seconds.Read more ›
Amazon keeps removing my links in this review, sorry. Also, I notice I had my read and write speeds flopped, this has since been corrected on all my reviews posted for each SSD.
I am an avid MacBook Pro user and do a lot of hardware reviews for Apple products. I was able to get my hands on a dozen or so SSDs and test them out on a 2011 13" MacBook Pro and a 2012 13" MacBook Pro and have posted my results below on speeds, firmware and RMA.
All test were done with the SSD installed in the Main HDD Bay1, not the Optical Bay with SATA III on both the 2011 and 2012 MacBook Pro's. All 3rd party SSDs in Mac's require a Terminal CMD or TrimEnabler App to enable TRIM has OS X doesn't turn this on be fault.

Great SSD with good speeds, not faster than the Samsung 830, 840, 840 Pro or OCZ Vertex 4 but faster than the Crucial M4. SandForce based SSD which I've seen performance issues on OS X. As you see from the Benchmarks, all the non SandForce Controlled SSDs tend to performance slower on Mac's, minus the Crucial M4. Reliability seems to be reported good with these drives and users seem to be happy overall.
