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.

Product and Warranty Details

3 out of 5 eggsDied after 1 Year

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Reliable

Pros: I picked this up on sale as a replacement to the 15K HDD in a gaming desktop. After nearly 5 months it has been solid and performs great. ATTO's Disk Benchmark returns high I/O results that blow the 15K away; as you would probably expect. I kept the 15K around as overflow if I ever need it.

Cons: Expensive when not on sale.

Other Thoughts: If you're in the market for a new SSD to replace or supplement your spinning disk, there's no reason not to get this drive. If you can wait, try to get it on sale.

1 out of 5 eggsWon't initialize

Pros: none at the moment

Cons: will not initialize and samsung wizard says device is in locked state. I cannot get it to unlock. It worked for a while and now it just quit.

Other Thoughts: If it wasn't past the 30 day RMA period I would send it in for a replacement but its too late for that. Samsung usually has a good product but I am really disappointed with this one.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, Quiet, Reliable

Pros: Once you go Solid State you won't go back. Improvement in just about every aspect of my experience with my computer. Faster load times (for textures, saves, no more random skips in heavy textured games (ie. heavily modified skyrim) Faster boot times, quiet, not hot and will last longer than my 7500 and 15000 rpm drives.

Cons: Not a one.

1 out of 5 eggsShort live span

Pros: This was an incredibly fast drive while it was alive.

Cons: I purchased the drive in April and it died in December. Very unfortunate. After looking on a couple other review sites. I saw this short life span was very common in fact.

Other Thoughts: I just filled out my XRA form on Samsung. I will update this review with information on their RMA service. I haven't heard good things, but i'll keep you informed.
