|The Single Best Upgrade for Your PC|
With its simple 3-Step migration solution and industry-leading IOPS performance, the Samsung SSD 840 Series is the single best upgrade you can make for your PC. Samsung's new SmartMigration software takes the guesswork and headache out of moving your operating system and precious data to your new SSD. Once you're up and running, the 840 Series' amazing IOPS speeds empower you to multitask like never before.
Upgrading to an SSD is the easiest and most economical way to breathe new life into an aging PC. Today, most PC performance woes are the result of slow read and write speeds on behalf of the main storage device, not a lack of CPU performance. Upgrading to a Samsung SSD 840 Series can breathe new life into your old PC by enhancing boot-up speed, application loading, and multi-tasking performance.
Customer Reviews of Samsung 840 Series 250GB 2.5" SATA III Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pretty standard, good12/9/2013
We have had no problem with this drive. We did learn long ago to update the firmware of SSD's before finishing set up, so please check to see if Samsung has updated firmware before you finish the installation. This could save you headaches along the road.
Great service, excellent product9/3/2013
Delivered on time, exactly what I ordered and at a great price. Thank you so much.
Its a nice SSD. Although it is behind pro and other newer model, but its hardly distinguishable. At least for general purpose use, we cannot differentiate it. Also it was cheaper so makes more sense to buy this over others.
Migration software is poor8/4/2013
The software come with SSD is poor. Have to call Samsung support to get help. They should publish somewhere for people easy to reach the simple right answer. It end up I have to down load some free migration software and I waste so much time try to get it going.
Fast SSD at a fair price7/20/2013
Works fine. included a cloning utility. It was a easy file transfer.
The drive is great!7/18/2013
I have a Dell OptiPlex 755 at home and wanted to see if the SSD drive would help speed up the computer. I was extremely surprised how well the drive preformed and sped up this six year old computer. I would recommend this Samsung SSD drive to anyone looking for a new storage option and speeding up an older system that is still usable. Running Windows 7 and Office 2007, the applications start up quickly. The system itself starts much quicker and is more responsive with this SSD drive than it did with the older style hard drives. I actually bought a second one to have in this computer.
It's one of the cheapest SSD (when on sale) in terms of $ per GB. Speed test confirmed the spec is pretty much accurate. I had a 250G version in my PC and a 500G version in an iMac. So far both have been performing well. Theoretically the TLC (Triple-Level Cell) used in the 840 results in higher error rate and shortened life span for the drive, but I think for average use in normal environment it should last well beyond the life span of the PC.
Great Little Drive7/5/2013
Purchased this for my Home Media Server's OS. Works great, very quick. My first experience with SSD.
We use these in laptops for revit and graphic users wow are they fast
Fast shipping! I have already bought from Adorama Camera again! Great transaction!
My new favorite SSD6/3/2013
After buying about a dozen OCZ solid state drives over the past few years, I'm now officially switching over to Samsung. Not only is their cost per gig lower than any other, but the performance is decent and support software best-in-class. Really, I wonder why I dealt with the hassle required before by OCZ to simply upgrade firmware. Samsung has made it so much easier and put it in an light, attractive enclosure.
Easy to install. Took my netbook from a 1:30 start up time to a :24 start. Programs start almost instantly. Battery life improves.
drive plugs in easily to macbook pro. really speeds the machine. the mac migration works great... except for office - I had to re-enter my key.
