5 out of 5 eggsJ3S_u.s L0_V3_s.me

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Have 2 of these. They are great. Super fast.

Cons: Since 850 series came out the price jumped on these beauties +200 dollars. 850 series are better than 840 and cheaper (currently) but 840 were THE SSD to go to for max speed in it's day (just last year actually.) Things go fast in this industry.

Other Thoughts: Well, if you have one of these--keep them. If you don't,.. go for Samsung 850 series. 850 series offer similar specs but have a tighter and cleaner performance line when measured, and a new V-NAND 3D stacking technology to boot.

5 out of 5 eggsBest SSD I have owned

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very fast and to date have not had an issue with any of the SSD's I have owned.
I wish I could buy more of them . Currently have a 256 (12 months + ) and a new 512GB one. Neither have skipped a beat and boot times are great.
Samsung has a great app to move your current drive over to an SSD and it works perfectly.
Runs on Windows 7, 8 and 10 preview without any issues.

Cons: more expensive than some of the other ones, but I do trust the pro series based on reviews online.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this is worth the money.. especially if you have an older system that needs a boost..

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 4 months with sector failures

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very fast drive.

Cons: Died after 4 months as the OS drive. Restore from image still ended up with NT loader missing. Same restore image to other drive worked fine. Disk can only be returned for refurbished drive per Samsung's warranty policy.

Other Thoughts: If it would not have died so quickly, this drive would have been great. Very fast, boots Windows 7 Ultimate in less than 20 seconds.

5 out of 5 eggsPhenomenal Drive.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Night and day difference vs HDD. I was in awe at how fast this thing is compared to my old HDD. Everything is so responsive now. This is probably one of the best upgrades you can do to get speed and response out of normal computer use.

This is like a Bugatti Veyron vs a 63 Volkswagen Beetle.

Everything I open or delete is near instant. I highly recommend this drive.

Cons: Note a single one.

Other Thoughts: Buy one you won't regret it. Your only regret will be that didn't get one sooner.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Quality drive at a great price. Everything arrived as it should be with one exception.

Cons: Drive was sold without notice of condition, received 'used-like new' re-packaged in original box.

Other Thoughts: I wasn't exactly happy about buying a used item without notice, but Action Packaged Inc. customer service was very responsive replying to my issue and made an apology offer (which I turned down). The drive seems to be operating just fine, and I'll be perfectly happy so long as it continues to do so for a nice long lifespan. Overall, I think I lucked out with a quality drive at a reduced price (The one I bought was cheaper than the same drive listed when I later reviewed the item link after receiving my order and seeing that it was used)

Thanks M.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: There's no topping Samsung Pro series in quality at this price. Not only are they affordable - but if properly setup they last and are incredibly responsive. They greatly extended my notebook's battery. You won't be disappointed.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Want it to last? Don't add it to a cheap RAID controller or already existing machine that was defaulted to IDE controller's at the OS level. Don't forgot TRIM. Ensure AHCI. Disable OS paging. Etc and so on... Still, despite PEBKAC, Samsung is replacing customer mistakes under their warranty. You just can't lose here.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I'm using 6Gb sata controller. Good performance while it lasted

Cons: Read speed around 150mb/s , write 50-80 mb/s. Drastic performance drop. 116Gb free out 238. Piece of junk , waste of money on beta testing garbage product. I'm done with samsung
