Upgrading your PC with a Samsung 840 is the most economical way to breathe new life into an aging PC. The 840 reads, writes, and multi-tasks at incredible speeds, enhancing boot-up, application loading, and multi-tasking performance. It's more than an upgrade--it's a complete transformation of your PC. This SSD has a capacity of 500 GB and comes with a full installation kit for easy setup and data transfer.

Smoother Performance and Faster Boot-Up

The 840 reads, writes, and multi-tasks at incredible speeds, giving you performance you never thought possible from your PC. Its blazing-fast performance is optimized to improve everyday PC productivity, including web browsing, email, multimedia, and gaming. In addition, the 840 Series SSD enables your PC to boot up in as little as 10 seconds.

Carefully Engineered and Fully Encrypted to Protect Data

Engineered for reliability, the 840 Series SSD gives you the latest in Samsung memory technology with the highest-quality manufacturing standards. The 840 is made from 100% Samsung components, the world's #1 memory manufacturer.

And the 840 has no moving parts, which means no hard drive spin-ups, no noise, and superior data protection. To further protect your data, this SSD offers AES 256-bit full disk encryption for worry-free data security.

Sleek, Lightweight, and Energy Efficient

At only 7 millimeters thick and weighing just 2 ounces, the 840 Series SSD has a thin, lightweight design that can make your laptop lighter to carry.

And because it contains no moving parts, the ultra-energy-efficient design consumes significantly less battery power, and allows you to enjoy up to 50 minutes longer laptop battery life than a standard hard disk drive (HDD) or competitor SSD.* This product also supports Device Sleep mode for Microsoft Windows 8 to help reduce power consumption.

Included with the 840 Series SSD is an installation kit that contains SATA data and power cables, screws, a 2.5-to-3.5-inch adapter bracket, and a SATA-to-USB adapter cable. The kit also contains a mounting spacer so its slim 7-millimeter profile will work with slim Ultrabook designs as well as with laptops with traditional full-height 9.5-millimeter drive bays.

Samsung's Smart Data Migration software is also included to make it safe and easy to migrate your data and operating system from your existing drive to the 840 Series SSD.

2 out of 5 eggsfailed after 7 months of usage

Pros: Drive speed was fast and throughput was consistent even when under heavy load.

Cons: The drive failed after about 6 months of use. I store games and my photos on this drive so it does get a lot of read/write activity (vs. just read). I have never had a drive fail on me so soon even with heavy usage...

Other Thoughts: I wonder if it's just bad luck on my part. All my friends who have bought this exact drive are happy with theirs.

5 out of 5 eggsOnce you go SSD, you won't go HDD again!

Pros: * Restarting computer only takes a few seconds with an SSD
* Make sure you're OS is on the SSD for optimal performance
* Loads everything in a flash

Cons: * Could not get it to properly work with my 1 TB HDD
* Had to reinstall my OS and wipe my drive to get it to properly work at one point.

Other Thoughts: This SSD has plenty of room, but if I need extra space I have a 3 TB external to store data

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: High density and no longer needing to use platter RAID-0 drives for scratch disc for the size and performance I needed.

Cons: Price but since I bought this on sale it's really a null and void issue!

Other Thoughts: I have this unit married up with an Apricorn adapter and it's excellent! I have traditionally used Intel drives over the last four years and I'll tell you first hand buy Samsung drives and you'll not be disappointed!

5 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: Very fast, Slim, and Light
Does not use much power - in a laptop, it extended battery life by an hour.

Cons: A little tricky to install because it is thinner and requires the plastic ring included, but that is just for laptops and a minor inconvenience

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 9 months

Pros: It doesn't emit odors or toxic fumes.

Cons: Maybe I just got a bad drive, it died completely after 9 months. Warranty replacement from Samsung was fast and painless but sadly my backup was out of date so I lost some stuff.

5 out of 5 eggsbest upgrade I ever bought!

Pros: * speed
* 0 moving parts
* reliability
* speed

Cons: price - it was over $300 when I bought it. Hopefully by time you buy it it will be down under $200

Other Thoughts: I love this thing! It has completely eliminated loading times that I was experiencing and I am anticipating using it for a very long time.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat drive, bad accessories

Pros: Fast, large capacity. Super light - I guess that's a pro.

Cons: 3 1/2" mounting bracket requires special screws that won't work with my Lian-Li case. I need to be able to use a standard thread 3 1/2" hard drive mounting screw that is larger than what this bracket will support to mount this. Had to purchase a separate 3 1/2" mounting kit.

Other Thoughts: Didn't even try the migration software because I use Linux and was able to simply copy files from one drive to the other. And to those who said the install instructions were weak - if you can't already install an SSD you probably shouldn't be buying one...

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Win for Samsung

Pros: Installed in an HP Pro Book, cloned from existing drive using Acronis 2013, and system is up and running. Windows 7 recognized everything as it should.

Boot times were really good until MSE was updated, then it got slow. However this is obviously not the drives fault.

I did not get a lot of time to benchmark the drive as this was for a customer who had me do this while he waited. The Samsung software is useful for updating the firmware, bench-marking the drive, and changing Windows settings to either get the most performance or the most life out of the drive.

Cons: The only con is about the software. For some reason every time you boot the system it requests Administrator privileges. This causes the UAC to pop up every time, and I don't want to disable it on my customer's computers.

Other Thoughts: Buy it. Just keep your data backed up. Though I have never had a Samsung die on me it does happen from time to time. When an SSD dies your not getting anything back.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk or poor shipping practice?

Pros: Price was nice, under a gig per gig.

Cons: First one arrived in a box demolished by UPS. Second one was packed on the BOTTOM of the box with paper on top. Don't know if it was jarred to death. Samsung support is useless claiming people are having trouble with the supplied dongle. Whoopee, thanks Samsung. Drive was picked up by my EVGA board but four, count them, FOUR attempts to move my system to the drive using Paragon Backup and Restore and over two days, drive was a dud. Think I'll wait until there are more reviews and Newegg learns how to ship delicate electronics. Sent back with refund pending.

Other Thoughts: Whatever happened to packing peanuts? EVGA still uses them!!!
