2 out of 5 eggsSamsung 840 Pro

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

Pros: Super fast hard drive.

Cons: Failed in 18 months. When the SSDs fail, they are completely dead. So insure you backup your laptop frequently. The warranty replacements are not new, they are "refurbished" however they cannot "refurbish" a SSD. They wipe them clean, test them and send out used SSDs for the warranty. So my warranty replacement is bad, many errors, and need to send this one back now...

5 out of 5 eggsBest on the market

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

Pros: Small, quiet, FAST! This is one amazing SSD. Installed Windows 7 Ultimate in under 15 minutes lol. Takes me 12 seconds to completely restart my PC. Loads into games faster than most in servers.

Cons: Doesn't make sandwiches as good as my girl.

Other Thoughts: Only difference between MLC and TLC seems to be life expectancy. So I sprang extra for the Proseries over the EVO series. Bought at a good price. DEFINITELY worth the money I paid. Soon going to run a 2nd so I keep 1 dedicated to my OS and the other for gaming.

5 out of 5 eggsMUCH Better Then a HHD

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

Pros: Works like a normal hhd but almost 5x faster. I love the speeds from opening my game to copping files.

Cons: This is not really a con but I would wish there was a 50-100GB more space because right now I only have 33GB left after using cleanmgr in windows.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Samsung Warranty Experience

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

Pros: Write and Read speeds are as advertised.

Cons: Failed after 18 months, however Samsung warranty took care of it and gave me another one. And everyone lived happily ever after.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this SSD in March 2013, so this is a long-term review. Speeds were as advertised, although I'm on SATA-II so didn't see the full benefits, but even then it still hovered around 300MB/s+. Awesomely fast. There are better reviews here for benchmarks stats, so this review is about what happens when something goes wrong.

So, after 18 months of daily use (4 TB total lifetime written), it suddenly froze up during a file copy. Tried 1) freaking out, 2) disk scan for errors, 3) diskpart & reformat, 4) Secure Erase using Samsung Magician, 5) reinstall Win 7 OS, ...none of those worked. I hesitantly contacted Samsung warranty, not knowing what to expect. I shouldn't have worried -- Samsung's warranty process is painless. It's handled (in US) by Total Tech Solutions in New Jersey, and they did a great job.

Here's how it works: A quick phone call to 1-800-SAMSUNG (800-726-7864), an email exchange regarding the symptoms and serial number, and then you get a PDF shipping label. Samsung pays for free shipping both ways (overnight!); in a few days, you get another drive. You will get a technically refurbished unit, but disk checks showed only 0.4 TB written (probably just for QA checks), which is basically brand-new, and except for a sticker, it looked new.

Extremely satisfied with this purchase, so 5 eggs even after a failure. This drive performance is incredible, and if you ever get unlucky enough to do an RMA, Samsung stands behind its products and will take care of you during the 5-year warranty coverage.
