      The 256GB version performs with remarkable speed and stability. After almost 2 weeks of very heavy use on a fresh install of Windows 8, I've experienced no issues. Samsung's 4th-generation 3-Core MDX Controller has been and still is at the top of the heap. Initially, the performance was lower than rated because I did not have AHCI mode enabled in my registry and BIOS, but after a couple of tweaks my benchmarks were impressive: Samsung SSD Magician v3.2 benchmarks: Seq Read 532 Seq Write 379 Ran Read 64378 Ran Write 43474 AS SSD Benchmarks: Seq Read 502.25 MB/s, Write 370.08 MB/s 4K Read 29.13 MB/s, Write 53.99 MB/s 4K-64Thrd Read 327.99 MB/s, Write 270.136 MB/s 4K-64Thrd Read 83966 iops, Write 69153 iops Acc.Time Read 0.083 ms, Write 0.060 ms Score 981 This drive is a bit expensive (at the time of this review), but that is to be expected at this point and I did not hesitate buying it on the first day it was released. 11/21/2012 UPDATE: After updating the driver from the Microsoft's AHCI to the latest Intel 7 AHCI 11.6.0.1030 controller, my iops increased substantially. Samsung SSD Magician v3.2 benchmarks: Ran Read 96500 Ran Write 77319 AS SSD Benchmarks: 4K-64Thrd Read 96049 iops, Write 75320 iops

      It shows a great performance. Fast and obviously quiet. A good buy for my laptop. I only have sata2 but even in this I have a good write/read. You need a sata/usb cable to perform the data migration

      Samsung 840 Pro is the way to GO

      Comments about Samsung 256GB 2.5-inch SSD 840 Pro Series:

      I installed the Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD drive in my PC a few weeks ago, and it is working just great. The installation went off without a hitch. The Samsung Magician software is top-notch with all of the features that you would expect for a first-class SSD. The speed increase is very impressive. This was a great buy and I would highly recommend this SSD to anyone.

      This is the first Samsung product I have ever bought. Surely this is not the last one. The price of this SSD is a little bit higher than other's. But I think it worth the money.

            Comments about Samsung 256GB 2.5-inch SSD 840 Pro Series:

            I did a lot of researching before I purchased this SSD and found it was rated highly on (not giving name of site, but I heard from my friend TOM, who is very good with 'hardware'...) and other review sites. I upgraded from a traditional HDD so obviously it is much faster. That goes without saying. Other good points: - Quiet, can't hear it (but then I usually have music or TV going, so may make some noise, I honestly don't know) - Reliable so far (purchased it 6 months ago), has not died. Hopefully it'll last me 3-5 years, /crosses fingers. Giving the product 4 stars because I have heard on various sites and forums about people who's 840 PRO has died on them (but it's the internet, so who knows if they were even real) It may be more expensive than some other SSDs, but seriously the speed is phenomenal. I'm glad I spent the money.

                  I spent about a month researching SSDs and most reviews pointed to the Samsung 840 Pro being the best. I'll tell you that I agree. This was the simplest hard drive install I've experienced. Then add the improved speed over my Western Digital 7200 rpm drive, there is no comparison. Most reviews said that you would only notice a slight difference in boot up speed and application speed going from a standard HD to a SSD. I personally notice a huge reduction in the time it takes.
