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

 

This new drive is actually the professional version of the 840 series, so in a way it's a double upgrade since the 830 series didn't have a Pro version. The new drive differentiates itself from the rest of its SSD siblings by using Samsung's...

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

The Samsung 840 Pro is comparatively expensive.

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 SSD 840 Pro Series (256GB) Review and Ratings

 

Samsung's latest performance drive is among the fastest consumer drives we've tested to date, with a reasonable price given the speed. Professionals and enthusiasts should short-list it; mainstream users should consider the cheaper non-Pro model instead.

Very speedy overall for the price ; Five-year warranty ; Stylish-looking 7mm shell

Write speeds were bested by various OCZ drives

Content creators and enthusiasts looking for a very fast drive at a reasonable price should keep the Samsung SSD 840 Pro Series on their short list. It’s the most consistently high-scoring drive we’ve tested overall of our current competitive set....
