Comments about Samsung 840 PRO Series 256GB Solid State Hard Drive (Drive Only):
I replaced a smaller SSD on my desktop with this SSD from Samsung. Since I built the computer the prices of SSDs have continued dropping so that along with an excellent sale was enough reason to upgrade to the Samsung Pro. The transfer of data from the original SSD to the Samsung was easy and accurate using the included software from Samsung. A big plus was using the included Samsung Magician software to optimize the computer setting for my needs with the new SSD. I am now getting faster boot up and loading speeds while having the confidence in the reliability of a proven top tier product. No issues so far, all is running fast and efficiently.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Best Drive!!
I have used many SSD's and various other drives. None of them even come close to this drive in performance. Not to mention RAPID!! This thing is just the best drive that i have used EVER. Boots so fast and stays consistent through out the whole experience. Will be continuing to use Samsung SSD's whenever i can.

My speed running a SSD 840 PRO in my SAMSUNG ATIV Book 4
I've only had this drive for a few months, but I have nothing to complain about. my boot times are significantly shorter, and even though I have 7-9 programs loading at startup, I'm not feeling any sluggishness. The only thing that doesn't feel right is the weight. To me, it felt like I was getting an empty shell. Not a bad thing though, especially for a laptop.
FAST and reliability
The most fastest and reliable SSD in the entire world...
Fast & cost effective
I've been more than satisfied with the performance the SSD gave me. Definitely recommend buying it.
Worked great for almost a year, then failed.
As the titles says... The online RMA for Samsung seemingly does not work either so if you have a problem, its probably best to call.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

With my old hard drive, my computer used to boot up in about a minute. Now it boots up in 28 seconds. Also, my programs and games start much faster.
Great SSD for older MacBook
from New Zealand
I got this for my 2010 MacBook Pro, having read various comparisons of SSD performance in older model Macs. This SSD works really well; even at 3Gb/s bus speed it's totally worth the upgrade for faster performance. Some other drives claim to work, but perform very badly below spec in a 3Gb/s context. The SMART tools from Samsung don't work with OSX, so I suggest you budget for an app like TrimEnabler to make the most of the drive. Also, some drives come with a cable or even a basic case to aid in migrating from your old HDD (if, like me, that's what you want to do)... But the Samsung drives don't, so you've either got to get creative or shell out even more cash! I just ripped another SATA drive out of its case for this process, but if you don't have one, be prepared. So, the drive itself is great, but the missing accessories make it less of a bargain than it initially appears.
This SSD is fast and reliable. I would like to buy another and recommend this SSD to a friend.
