I was fortunate enough to acquire a 250 GB version of the 840 EVO SSD and I can't tell you how happy I am that I did. Before the transition from my 500GB HDD I typically experienced a 2.5 minute cold boot load times. Shutdown-restarts were very very ugly. Game load times, in my case. for Infestation:Survival Stories and Battlefield 4 were cut down significantly which are now tolerable. A concern for me was to get all of my most frequently used programs onto the SSD for speed but I was very apprehensive about attempting it. As it turned out, I was able to get all of my most commonly used programs onto the 250 but, not 'all' of my programs and data. I'm happy with what was accomplished but I want more speed for all of my programs and applications. A 500GB is on my horizon and this 250 will go into my notebook. Can't wait for the battery life extension this will accomplish for me. In a 'one word' description, I'd have to say "get one now, you won't be disappointed!' Tkay, Kent, WA.

I have about 15 SSDs, 11 are Samsung. I have everything from 830 SSDs to 850 Pro's and they all operate extremely well and are very reliable. The reliability are what is most important to me. The speed is important, but not quite so much as reliability. Fortunately, these have both and I am quite happy with them. When I buy another it will be a Samsung. Another thing that is very important is customer service. I once had to RMA one of them. The service was excellent and it ended up being one of the easiest and fastest RMAs I have ever done on anything. I was very impressed. Kudos to Samsung for an excellent product and excellent customer service. ZI only hope the continue on their current path.

Solid State Disk- software needs work.

The first is - replace your main hard drive with a solid state disk. The Samsung 840 is a good choice. If you need huge amounts of storage, add a large standard hard drive as well. The accompanying Samsung software did not work as well. I bought a 840 for my laptop and 840 for my tower, and in both case, the transfer software failed to successfully transfer the contents of the drive. It did not recognize the drive with the laptop and a third party usb to Sata interface, and was not able to make a bootable drive with my tower. The Magician software requires permission to make changes every time my laptop boots, and has never recognized the drive on my tower.

Wow!! I have a laptop 5 years old, it was responsive, I always had good care of it, but I heard a lot about performance improvements installing the OS in a SSD, so I tried, I installed the drive, cloned my system, deleted the old system in my old drive keeping it as a second drive.... I am really amazed by the improvement, I don't care how long it takes to start up or shut down, of course it starts up in 4 to 6 seconds, but the difference on how the programs run is important to me, and they run faster than a brand new computer I use in my job (with the best processor and video card). That is more than enough for me :) Thank you very much. (

I have been running an M4 Crucial CT256GB SSD as my primary drive on an Intel 2600k system with 16 GB PC1600 DDR3 RAM, an EVGA GeForce GTX 660Ti 2GB GPU, 3 SSDs and two 3TB SATA HDD in Raid 0. I thought it was pretty fast at on OC of 4.47 GHz. I replaced my M4 CT256 Gb with the Samsung EVO 840 250 GB SSD and it is so much faster when running Adobe Illustrator and large projects and transferring large files from one SSD to another I am just amazed. Quite the unexpected speed bump :0) Just, WOW, does not really cover it. But, WOW. WOW! Added bonus is the Samsung Magician Software bundle. Just totally a cut above the rest.

As a first SSD the speed is definitely noticeable. I cannot work on any OS without a SSD OS bootup. Very reliable. However it does require some google searching to know how to change to AHCI mode . You cannot rely on SSD magician that comes along with the SSD to do it for you. I do believe it is some what of a habit to get into since I suspect most SSDs will require this. The only problem I have ever had with this SSD is that it refuses to update firmware whether it is as a boot hard drive or a storage hard drive. 5 Year warranty and the number of cycles before failure is probably the best feature to a consumer.

My computer has sped-up significantly ever since I installed the SSD on my PC. I formerly had only a 1 Terabyte 7200RPM Hardrive installed and my PC was tremendously slow in comparison to how my system now operates. I am completely satisfied with the product and I would recommend it to others endeavoring to improve the speed of processing data. I use my PC to monitor my stocks daily on the TDAmeritrade website and the SSD significantly improved the speed of displaying graphs and pertinent data on my screen. Thanks to the SSD, I can now process stock data quickly in order to make quick decisions when necessary.

I replaced a WD Black Hard Drive with this and the boot times and speed increase was phenomenal. You will love this drive. Easy to migrate too.

Excellent, Reliable, and easy to use and configure. I have installed one EVO SSD and three 840 series drives and they are reliable and fast transfer rates are unbelievable. Excellent drive for the money but is a bit pricey compared to others. I hope they never sacrifice quality to make it cheaper, I don't mind paying for the SSD's Samsung makes because of the top quality of the product. With all that said I will buy this drive again and again to retrofit or upgrade many computers.

This SSD has breathed new life into an older laptop. Really amazed at the difference in performance and now really wish I would have upgraded sooner! The included migration software was a breeze to use and installation was simple. Can't believe how easy the whole operation went! In fact, bought the larger sized version of this for my desktop. Definitely recommend this product.
