Samsung 840 Pro Series SSD Review

 

Very fast in all tests, semi-affordable

Not as fast SandForce drives in queued workload

Samsung brings considerable resources to bear as the world’s largest manufacturer of flash memory, and it has quite a stellar track record in this market, as well. The 470 Series in early 2011 earned a verdict of 8 from us, and the 830 Series, which...

Review Samsung SSD 840 Pro Series: 256 GB

 

Fast and conservative? Samsung presents the successor to the popular 830 series: the new SSD 840 Pro series. Samsung promises to set new records in performance and power consumption. Ideal for notebooks? We will find out in the following review. ...

While we are talking about the SSD 830: it is available for extremely low prices (Oct. 2012) and will certainly be one of the biggest competitors of the 840 series, especially as the performance difference is barely noticeable in everyday use

Samsung 840 Pro ( 512GB)

 

It's been exactly a year since Samsung released its 830 series solid-state drive (SSD) and today, the company unveiled the upgraded version, the Samsung 840 Pro.

The Samsung 840 Pro offers fast performance and uses significantly less energy than other solid-state drives.

The Samsung 840 Pro is comparatively expensive.

The Samsung 840 Pro lives up to its name: it's a top-notch solid-state drive for professionals with a price to match.

Samsung SSD 840 Pro (256GB) Review

 

If we had an award for most improved in the SSD space, it would have to go to Samsung. When we first encountered Samsung MLC drives a few years ago they were pretty bad. Prices were high and performance was low. Samsung offered no end-user upgradable...

Samsung 470 (256GB, SSD)

 

Priced at a whopping $700 for the largest-capacity version, which caps at a mere 256GB (it's $280 for the 128GB version), the Samsung 470's top-notch performance only helps create a painful conundrum: you want it so badly yet at the same time you have...

Samsung's 470 solid-state drive (SSD) is light and good-looking, and offers great performance. The drive supports the traditional 2.5-inch design and works in any application where other SATA hard drives with the same design are used.

The Samsung 470 SSD is significantly more expensive than traditional hard drives, and its storage capacity caps at only 256GB. The drive doesn't support the new SATA 6Gbps data transfer rate.

If you want something that's fast, energy-efficient, lightweight, and durable, and don't mind the hefty prices, the Samsung 470's outstanding performance will make it worth the investment.
