Customer Reviews of Samsung 840 Pro Series 128GB 2.5" SATA III Solid State Drive (SSD)
Samsung SSDs are the drive to beat these days.4/6/2014
Samsung drives are among the best in terms of overall performance. They tend to be a little more money but are worth if it you are trying to squeeze every bit of speed you can. We have bought many of both the Pro and the EVO series and all have performed well. Go to ssd.userbenchmark.com if you want to do comparisons.
Probably the best SSD on the market right now1/10/2014
Currently the fastest read/writes for consumer grade SSDs These are very reliable drives. I've have 3 of them in different servers running 24x7 for months without any issues. The included Samsung Magician software has some great utilities for measuring and maintaining peak drive performance.
Installed simply, and have great transfer times versus my old SSDs.
Best Upgrade EVER!8/16/2013
I bought this because I was sick and tired of the boot times from my 5400 RPM hard drive. Now, I can't even imagine what it means to "wait for the PC to boot"! THIS item is AMAZING! I don't have to wait for anything to open! I LOVE THIS!
FAST, FASTER, FASTEST!8/10/2013
I bought 3 of the 840 pro series ssd and just finished installing. They are blazingly fast and only time will tel if I suffer the problems others have written about. At this point, they are blazing fast and the software they send with it is a welcome addition to the drive.
Best improvement for fast computer8/10/2013
I already have a fast computer, with an intel i5, 16GB, and a WD Black HDD. This was by far the best upgrade for speed. Fast startup/shutdown, fast access, it's just FAST! I bought it for a steal using points, but I would have paid full price had I know that it would be this good. Highly recommended.
This drive is incredible8/5/2013
I have installed drives of all brands, and no drive compares to this one. Period. Samsung makes it too easy to upgrade firmware. Performance? This drive has no competition. If you want the best in SSD technology, shop no further, this is the drive you need.

This ssd definitely lives up to all the hype about it. After installing this SSD my laptop became a 3 times as fast. I have linux installed on it, so the login page shows up within a second. Eclipse and such load within 7 seconds. Overall I'm very satisfied.

Big upgrade over my 5200 HDD6/17/2013
I bought this solid state drive as an upgrade over my 5200 rpm 320gb hdd. The cloning was easy using the alcorn software. One the cloning was done and hard drive replaced, my pc came up fast and all applications started right. Up. Before, there would be a hesitation but now the applications start up immediately. I am happy with this purchase.
Fast and easy to install4/30/2013
Smokin Fast Drive4/23/2013
I bought one of these drives a couple of months ago, to upgrade a five year old Dell D630. I took it to my computer guy, who installed Windows 7 64 bit and doubled the RAM. When I picked it up, he said that this was the fastest SSD he'd come across and that I would be impressed. Boy, is he right! The machine boots up in about 10-15 seconds, and shuts down even faster. It is as fast as my new Macbook Pro. I am very impressed to say the least. So impressed that I bought another!
