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 540MB/s and 520MB/s respectively--for ultra-fast file transfers. In addition, the SSD features exceptional random speeds with 100K 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 7 millimeters thick and weighing just 2 ounces, 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 Device 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

Purchased 11/04/2014. Still going strong. No hiccups to date. Today is 02/08/2017

Pros: Everything.
This was a HUGE step forward in all aspects for me.
I've come to learn that space and speed are priceless when it comes to how efficient a computer really works.
This Samsung 840 Pro was my first SSD. But will not be my last.
I have NOT had any issues with this product of any kind.
I only wish I had gotten 2 instead of 1. But at the time wasn't financially possible.
Since the upcoming release of the ZEN AMD processors I'll most likely be getting an M.2 SSD and using this as storage or a cache drive.
If you have any questions or hesitations about getting one of these, rest assured your money will be well spent with no regrets.

Cons: None
not a single one
If I could give this 100 eggs I would.

Other Thoughts: It's small, it's faster than I could have imagined when going from an spin type HDD.
Pure positive thoughts and experience with this.
Get one, you won't regret it.

One of the best SSDs on the market (at the time)!

Pros: - This SSD performs very well. When I initially installed it, I could boot to three operating systems in a row (Windows 8, Linux Mint, OS X) from POST to desktop in about two and a half minutes total (including fumbling with passwords).
- Excellent and actually helpful companion software that doesn't get in the way.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I initially installed this in my main rig, but moved it to my iMac after upgrading to an 850 Evo.
Make sure to download the Samsung Magician software to get firmware updates and quick OS SSD optimization!

3 out of 5 eggs i bought 2 SSD, one now stop work after 2.5 years, bad customer service in french (France, or other like service from India)09/13/2016

Pros: good SSD at all, good performance, good warranty 5 years (2013) AT THIS TIME, NOW (2016) is just 3 years

Cons: i bought 2 SSD, one now stop work after 2.5 years, bad customer service in french (France, or other like service from India), bad information from customer service. after many discussion, Samsung Canada not recognize my warranty, i have to pay (with mt pocket) to send to USA my SSD, normally shipping is pay by Samsung when warranty. BECAUSE NEWEGG bought SSD in USA to sell in Canada, They not buy SSD in Canada for customer in Canada. many problem or exact information from customer service.

Other Thoughts: Good SSD at all and warranty, but try to buy stuff from your country, some compagny like Samsung not recognize fuquing warranty. BAD customer service from some country. bad web site setting to have help, tracking and survey.
