Business Friendly Features

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.
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!
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.

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.
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 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?
Just got this SSD, My previous one was one of the first gen of SSD that went out, few years ago. And I wanted to improve a bit, this SSD is one of the best, 256gb is enough for few games and OS. And faster then a 120gb. I would recommande to any who want a good SSD.
There isn't really much you can describe an SSD with. It is fast and also somewhat roomy. In this case with a 256Gb you can do an OS drive + applications + games and not run out of space depending on how much is installed.
