SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works well with UEFI
Super fast
I have recommend Samsung 840 EVO and PRO to my friends and relatives as it is a fast and reliable drive.

Cons: Not really the SSD's fault but I had problems with Samsung Magician. The program installed properly but when launching the program my PC Locks. I believe its an issue with my system board as Ive had similar issues with other software.

That being said Ive manually implemented most of the SSD Tweeks the Magician does for you and the performance improved significantly.

Other Thoughts: One recommendation for PRO and EVO owners. Leave Writing Caching enabled. Write speeds dropped significantly when write caching was disabled. Once write caching was re-enabled speeds were back up to spec.

Pros: Excellent drive, fast as advertised and works well in windows 8 UEFI environment. UEFI boot is almost instant and application load speeds are significantly faster then my previous SSD.

Cons: none so far..

Other Thoughts: If you are looking to increase the speed of your PC I strongly recommend this SSD or any SSD in general. I have worked in IT for years and can say, from vast experience, purchasing an SSD like this is the best way to instantly increase performance.
