Product Features

  • 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.
  • Superior Reliability

    As the world’s #1 DRAM, NAND Flash, and SSD supplier; Samsung SSDs are designed and built completely in-house. The Samsung SSD 840 Series is optimized for exceptional, sustained performance and unrivaled reliability through its specially-engineered wear-leveling and garbage collection algorithms backed by a 3-year limited warranty.
  • Magician Software

    Samsung’s Magician software has been completely redesigned with an extreme focus on usability. Magician makes it simple for users to maximize the performance and lifetime of their Samsung SSD. In addition, SSD Magician also provides system information and facilitates performance benchmarking, performance optimization, OS optimization, firmware updates, secure erasing, and over provisioning. Newly introduced Drive Health Status, Total Bytes Written (TBW), and Disk Scan & Error Reporting functionality make Magician one of the most useful storage utilities available.
  • A Complete, User-Friendly Solution

    The Samsung SSD 840 Series is available with a simple, all-in-one installation kit. The kit comes with SATA data and power cables, screws, a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch adapter bracket, a SATA to USB adapter cable to facilitate easy data migration, and a mounting spacer so that laptops with traditional 9.5mm drive bays can accommodate the Samsung SSD 840 Series’ slim 7mm profile.

          Comments about Samsung 840 Series 250GB Solid State Hard Drive with Install Kit:

          I RMA a intel 330 180gb ssd. When waiting for the new SSD From Intel I saw this on sale, so I got it and sold The 330 to a friend. The Samsung has a much slower write speed but the read is about the same. The Samsung magician software is a little better the Intel Tool Box software. It was easy to clone over from my OEM spare drive with the Samsung clone software. I wish and hope Samsung magician soon well soon let us enable the rapid mode for the none EVO Drives, they could do it because it only software that uses your system memory for a cache.

            I've bought three of these and find they are very fast to install Windows 7 - 64 bit on, right out of the box. However I frequently get Disk Read Errors during boot up. Once it does start it's very stable and loading programs and files is very, very fast. A good drive, but I'm not finding much help in resolving the Disk Read Errors on startup.

              Looks nice, thin, and light weight. One thing bothers me is that it doesn't have migrating software for Mac. I bought this to replace my HD in my Mac laptop and I had to use carbon copy cloner to clone the drive. Should have software for both Mac and PC.
