          Comments about Samsung 840 PRO Series 128GB Solid State Hard Drive (Drive Only):

          The 128 GB version performs with remarkable speed and stability. After almost 2 weeks of very heavy use on a fresh install of Windows 7, I've experienced no issues. Samsung's 4th-generation 3-Core MDX Controller has been and still is at the top of the heap. Initially, the performance was lower than rated because I did not have AHCI mode enabled in my registry and BIOS, but after a couple of tweaks my benchmarks were impressive.

            I've been using my 840 Pro for 6 months and it has performed flawlessly. My boot time is fast and download speeds are just what I anticipated. This product has met all my expectations, just as all my other Samsung devices. If your in the market for a SSD don't pass up this one.

                      I replaced a WD drive in my Asus X501A laptop with this one and all I can say is WOW!!!! This thing is fast. My laptop (running 8.1 pro) boots completely in under 10 seconds. Programs open super quick. The best upgrade ever. My laptop( i3-2350M, 4 GB Ram).

                        I bought my Samsung 840 Pro to bring my oldest desktop system back to life and that's just what it did! It's no longer the slowest of my systems but just as fast and reliable as the two newest systems.

                            this SSD seems to work very fast for business applications, has more than enough space for our business machines, and a price that comes in right under our budget limit, which is great.

                                I have been using this SSD for about 9 months now, and it has worked flawlessly for the entire time. It is extremely fast and I find the Samsung Magician software to be easy to use and effective. Really, I have nothing bad to say, I plan to buy more in the future.
