Fast and 5 Year Warranty
Included software did not find their own drive
Their data migration software installed but would not find their own drive so it would not work. Windows 7 had no problems finding the drive and formatting it. The Seagate (great company for hard drives) disk wizard had no problem cloning my OS to the SSD.

Experience: 1 Years
Lightning Fast
The cloning software
Awesome SSD
With Samsung magician software you can get even faster with Turbo Mode I can get lightning fast speed to do my video transfer.
I just have some difficulty with the bundle cloning software.

Strongly recommended

Experience: 1 Years
High price
So far the best SSD i had.
I bought 2 of them because the 512 GB was too expensive 1 year ago.
Very fast disk and the software Magician is very handy.
Samsung have the best SSD in the market.

Experience: 1 Weeks
Fast, Samsung driven (not Sandforce), long warranty, reliable?
Pricey, build quality could be better
I bought this to replace a failed Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 240, which fell victim to the disappearing SSD syndrome common to Sandforce based SSD's.
The build quality of this drive is the worst of the three I have, one being the Mushkin from above, the other is an OCZ Vertex 2. The top housing of the Samsung drive is thin, but very nice looking. The bottom feels thin, hollow and cheap. The other two drives have a much more robust feel to the case overall.
The SATA cable latches nicely, which was lacking on the Mushkin drive.
Install and setup were fine. Speed seems really good so far.
Only reliability remains to be seen. Hopefully the Samsung controller outshines Sandforce in the long run.

I would give 4.5 stars for the mediocre build quality and high price if I could. Given that this drive seems to be best-in-class and has yet to disappoint otherwise, 5 stars it is.

Super Fast, 5yr warranty, Top of the line
No Mounting bracket
Got this to replace a 128GB OCZ Vertex3 drive.
This SSD is much faster and has a 5yr warranty with 256GB of space.

I Download the software from Samsung's site.
There version of the drive copy software on there site and did not work for me (windows). so I used the Intel software (I have and old Intel drive as well)instead and it worked fine (command line on boot).

Instant speed boost, sata 3 bus too slow,Rapid Mode gives nice boost
None so far
The cost of a ssd is worth every penny and the 5 year warranty seals the deal

Fast, Stable, Looks great
Making the jump from ATA to SSD, what a world of a difference. Windows boots in 4 seconds flat. I'm looking forward to installing Linux on this to see how much faster that will take! What a difference from my old ATA.

I was surprised at how light it was. No drivers or messy installation required either!

Small, black, fast
No mounting bracket, average price
I installed it and it came as advertised. I used the Samsung magic software that it with. It worked as advertised. Made all me read and writes, speeds and all those fancy numbers and letters. I likes using the software to partition the space Samsung wants you to have free for the controller. Then having the software default the rest of my settings to optimize the ssd was nice. No complaints. I am only going to wait and see how long it lasts. Oh, I do have my operating system on it, and a couple games, that's it. Movies, ect are all on different disks. One complaint. No mounting bracket. Not impressed for this price/quality. I already had an old 2.5 bracket, so good to go. Mind you my new and most new case have 2.5 bays built in. So maybe, meh?

Comment: It's very quick, topping a majority of our benchmark charts. Moreover, it achieves its great performance while using less power than its competition. This makes the 840 Pro the fastest, most efficient SSD we've seen to date.
Posted by: dht @11/18/12
Comment: The Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD not only looks good, it’s one of the fastest drives on the market, it’s reliable, and it’s not priced too exorbitantly either. Looks like Samsung has pulled all the stops on the 840 Pro and it’s definitely a very worthy successor to the Samsung 830. Highly recommended!
Posted by: dht @11/18/12
Comment: The performance and power characteristics of Samsung's SSD 840 Pro are as close to perfect as we've seen from any drive this generation. In all but a handful of benchmarks, the 840 Pro is the fastest consumer SSD we've ever tested.
