Fast, Consistent Performance for Heavy Workloads

Designed for professionals and their most demanding applications, the SSD 840 PRO provides unrivaled read, write, and multi-tasking performance. It's built for the real world, with no moving parts reducing the risk of damage from shock, while using the latest in security technology including AES 256-bit encryption. Its ultra-efficient design means increased battery life.

Industry-Leading 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 530MBps and 390MBps respectively--for ultra-fast file transfers. In addition, the SSD features exceptional random speeds with 97K 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.

Precision Engineered and Built In-House

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**.

Increased Reliability and Security

The 840 PRO allows you to keep up with demanding workloads while safeguarding your data. Advanced AES 256-bit, full-disk encryption provides worry-free data security. And the Samsung MDX controller technology and firmware ensures long-term sustained performance under the most punishing conditions.

Sleek, Lightweight, and Energy Efficient

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

And because it contains no moving parts and it features an ultra-efficient design, it consumes little battery power, letting you enjoy up to 50 minutes more of laptop battery life than a standard hard disk drive (HDD) or competitor SSD***. This product also supports sleep-mode for Microsoft Windows 8 and Haswell chipsets to help reduce power consumption.

Maintenance Software for IT Managers

Samsung's Magician software includes business-friendly features that make it easy for IT managers to manage and maintain the health of the 840 PRO Series SSD, including Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART) Support.

5 out of 5 eggsHome screen in record time...off of every start up

Pros: I'm not super techy...I just know enough to build my own desktops. But man, this SSD is absolutely beautiful in every way. Windows starts up faster than you can snap your fingers! Okay, maybe not that fast, but it definitely cuts down on startup times and such by a lot. This thing does exactly what it should do and more with no problems at all.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Get one...like yesterday

5 out of 5 eggsReliable and Fast

Pros: This SSD is quite possibly the fastest drive I have ever come in contact with. When they "PRO", they mean "PRO"! My boot up times between power button and login screen are between 3 and 5 seconds usually with my Asus Sabertooth X79 MB and i7-4820k. This model isn't very specious, but the only things I put on it are my OS, programs, and data for fast access. I still have only used about 60% of the drive.
As far as reliability is concerned, I've had this drive for just at or past a year now and it has never once returned an error, failure, or issue of any kind. I have not have any slow downs, and no matter how much I put on it, my sequential and random read speeds star very consistent at the amount advertised.

Cons: I really don't have any. It is still even years later a very expensive device, but me still standing here a year later having never had a problem with it makes this device more and more worth it every day.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a drive that is easily 99th percentile as far as read and write speeds are concerned, this is probably the best choice. I have had just a little bit of experience with other brands and products, including the intel 7-0 series drives or even the samsung EVOs, and none of them even come close to touching this beautiful and well made piece of technology.
On another side, I will say if you're not looking for absolute top tear performance, then I'd go with the EVOs or something a bit cheaper, but if you need one that will last and remain consistently fast for as long as SATA 6Gb/s is still not obsolete, this is probably the best choice.

5 out of 5 eggsFast & Keeps Working: 1yr Follow Up

Pros: 1yr now with daily use and still going strong with no issues. No installation issues. Installed Win 7 Home 64bit without any issues. Boots system in under 10 sec. I've never had a boot problem. ASUS Z87 & Core i5 4570

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: OEM drive so you get nothing but the drive. make sure to have all of the mounting HW and cables.

5 out of 5 eggsFast,Fast, Fast

Pros: Fast, check out the boot times! Pentium Core booting windows 7 pro in 15 seconds for my HTPC, was 1:45 with factory HDD. Better rating than the new 850 pro

Cons: No mounting bracket for 3.5 inch slot, or SATA cable

Other Thoughts: If needed make sure you buy mounting bracket adapter and SATA cable, as they are not included.

4 out of 5 eggssecond Review on RMA details

Pros: Great drive while it lasted, no hard use, just operating system use, well maintained system temps. good drive, I must say The customer service has so far been exponential, it was a little troublesome to find how to get a hold of someone you have to just get the number and call them. I have made contact with a gentlemen on the issue with the drive, Got what I needed, I had to make a few returned calls to clarify a few things, all the phone calls have been great communication and the issues have been handled accordingly, I will write a new review once I have experienced a replacement unit. hopefully it will be as good as the customer service. Samsung # is 800-726-7864 should anyone need it. 4 eggs are purely for the customer service so far.

Cons: Died 18 months in, the reason I bought this was for the warranty, and I heard some good things about it.

Other Thoughts: I like the drive just horrible when it dies, You lose everything, I couldn't recover the drive at all. The customer service has been pleasant, hopefully I'll get the replacement quickly without any issues with the new drive.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome performance

Pros: 15 months, no problems. Windows 7 cold boot in 6 seconds! I use this as my O/S drive, and a second 2TB for games and data, and rarely install new apps on the SSD.

Cons: It fills up quickly with only 120GB. I got it for a great price, but recommend the 240GB, then you can install a few demanding apps on the SSD.

1 out of 5 eggsRMA is really bad

Pros: really FAST!

Cons: I purchased the product in December 2013, and it was dead in November 2014. I used it very carefully without any alteration and violation. It said that the product warranty policy for Samsung 840 pro is 5 years. However, I could not find a way to request RMA in the official website and I wrote an email to Samsung service center two weeks age. I have never got ANY response. I felt very disappointed about that. Actually, I had another Samsung SSD (840 pro - 256G) and planned to purchase 850 pro later. But I guess that I would not buy any Samsung SSD if the RMA is such bad and unfriendly.
