    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

    Worked great for almost a year, then failed.

    As the titles says... The online RMA for Samsung seemingly does not work either so if you have a problem, its probably best to call.

        Comments about Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB 2.5" SATA III (6 Gb/s) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD):

        I replaced a smaller SSD on my desktop with this SSD from Samsung. Since I built the computer the prices of SSDs have continued dropping so that along with an excellent sale was enough reason to upgrade to the Samsung Pro. The transfer of data from the original SSD to the Samsung was easy and accurate using the included software from Samsung. A big plus was using the included Samsung Magician software to optimize the computer setting for my needs with the new SSD. I am now getting faster boot up and loading speeds while having the confidence in the reliability of a proven top tier product. No issues so far, all is running fast and efficiently.

            I have used many SSD's and various other drives. None of them even come close to this drive in performance. Not to mention RAPID!! This thing is just the best drive that i have used EVER. Boots so fast and stays consistent through out the whole experience. Will be continuing to use Samsung SSD's whenever i can.

                    I've only had this drive for a few months, but I have nothing to complain about. my boot times are significantly shorter, and even though I have 7-9 programs loading at startup, I'm not feeling any sluggishness. The only thing that doesn't feel right is the weight. To me, it felt like I was getting an empty shell. Not a bad thing though, especially for a laptop.
