Description
The Single Best Upgrade for Your PCWith its simple 3-Step migration solution and industry-leading IOPS performance, the Samsung SSD 840 Series is the single best upgrade you can make for your PC. Samsung's new SmartMigration software takes the guesswork and headache out of moving your operating system and precious data to your new SSD. Once you're up and running, the 840 Series' amazing IOPS speeds empower you to multitask like never before.Upgrading to an SSD is the easiest and most economical way to breathe new life into an aging PC. Today, most PC performance woes are the result of slow read and write speeds on behalf of the main storage device, not a lack of CPU performance. Upgrading to a Samsung SSD 840 Series can breathe new life into your old PC by enhancing boot-up speed, application loading, and multi-tasking performance.

Samsung 840 (500GB, SSD)
3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Nov 13, 2012

THE GOOD: The <b>Samsung 840 series</b> solid-state drive (SSD) is affordable, good-looking, and offers very good performance. THE BAD: The Samsung 840 comes with just three, not five years of warranty coverage and is likely to have shorter lifespan than others of the same capacity. THE BOTTOM LINE: The Samsung 840 series is an excellent entry-level solid-state drive for budget and general users, but not really a good buy for advanced or professional users.

Fast, low cost SSD
4 Star Review   By Tech Exec on Adorama - May 18, 2013   

Didn't come with mounting bracket or transfer cable as shown in installation guide. Installation manual on CD was useless - you need to have cloned & installed an SSD before.

5 Star Review   By MacPerson on Adorama - Jan 22, 2013   

SSD in the macbook pro 2010 was an excellent decision for the replacement of a 7200 rpm hitachi hard drive. Performance is through the roof, boot time is now 12 seconds where the hard drive boot up time was 45 seconds. Other functions are now instantaneou
