Not as good as the 250G version
Comments about Samsung 840 Series 120GB Solid State Hard Drive (Drive Only):
I first tried this in my laptop replacing the 7200RPM drive. I saw some improvement but the write speeds were slower than expected. Hibernates actually took longer with this drive than the original HDD. I switched to the 250G version which has slightly better read speed but way better write speeds. This would probably be a good upgrade to a 5400RPM HDD and without doing hibernation.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The Best For The Price
from Russia, Volgograd
+ AMD970 (mb GA-970A-DS3): ATTO â€" sequential read speed up to 556 MB/s, sequential write speed up to 141 MB/s; AS SSD score - overall 654, read 308, write 198, seq. read speed 506 MB/s. For SATA 1,5Gb/s (Acer Aspire AOA110 with Intel Atom+945GM chipset) is good too: Windows 7 score 7.0, reboot time is in 3-4 times better then with HDD. Real weight 0.114 lb (50 g). 7mm form factor. Useful Samsung Magician Software ver.4.1. - Write speed is not for professionals (seq. 140 MB/s, rand. 80-90 MB/s) For SATA 3 Gb/s is not so good, Windows 7 score 7,7 (not 7,8).

120GB 2.5-inch SSD 840 Series did transform my notebook. It's now faster, and less battery consum .

Went from a 7200rpm HDD to this bad boy and the difference is day and night. Windows score jumped from 5.9 to 7.7 and almost all online game studder is gone,
Super fast and Super Reliable!!!
from New York
This is my second SSD and this beats out my first by a longshot. I recently built a new rig with this as my boot device and now I enjoy literally 7 second boots. Installation was a breeze, made sure that I bought a 2.5 inch bracket to place in the 3.5 inch hard drive bay. Definitely a must get for anyone looking to build a new pc or to swap out their laptop hard drive.
The Samsung SSD has had a remarkable performance in speed over HDD's. Even though there is only 100 GB storage it is well worth getting if you can afford it and can manage the storage capacity.
Just what i needed good Samsung quality and FAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This SSD is fast.
I bought this drive after using the Samsung 830 SSD on my MacBook Pro. That drive was fast and super reliable, hopefully the streak will continue with this one. On typical day to day operations, I don't really notice a difference between the two. Benchmarks using Black Magic Speed Tests show the following: Samsung 830 (256GB): Read: 468 MB/sec Write: 389 MB/sec Samsung 840 Pro (256GB): Read: 512 MB/sec Write: 451 MB/sec If you are thinking about upgrading from an existing SSD, depending on your usage, it may not be worth it. But if you are going from a traditional HDD, go for it. You won't regret it.
