      This is my very first SSD that I've ever installed into any computer. I put this in my Samsung NP700Z7C-S01-US running Windows 7 Home Premium, Intel quad-core i7 3615QM processor with hyperthreading, 8GB of RAM, and a 1TB 5200RPM HDD. I have nothing but good things to say about it. When I first opened the box, I couldn't believe how unbelievably light it was. It weighed 1/3 of my HDD! I was totally shocked! The speed difference was night and day. My computer went from starting up in 1 minute to about 10 seconds! Having a nice processor and some decent RAM really helps the drive! This drive is just blazing fast and I'm VERY satisfied with this upgrade! Glad I did it! I would highly recommend this drive to anyone who is looking into an SSD upgrade. I know it's a bit pricey, but you won't regret it. I promise.

      As a photographer, I purchased this wonderfully large and fast 840 Pro as a screaming replacement for the boot drive on my laptop and to launch/run computationally intensive apps like Photoshop. I hoped that by using a solid state drive, I could accelerate my workflow while ensuring great reliability in hardware. All worked well for about 4 months, after which the drive's boot sector became corrupted and unable to launch anything on the laptop. Two expert technicians identified the flaw in this configuration as originating in the hardware, itself. You should consider my experience as only a single data point, and I am in no position to criticize Samsung or this product for the quality of engineering or production. However, since my laptop is my digital darkroom, I cannot afford to experience primary hard drive failures. Chastened from the experience, I purchased a more conventional mechanical hard drive to serve as a main drive on my computer. Samsung was gracious enough to replace the failed SSD; but I have decided not to trust that replacement as an integral part of my photo processing. After stuffing it in a robust external enclosure, it became my biggest, fattest "thumb drive" for photo presentations and picture storage.

          I like the interface that you can utilize Samsung Magician directly from your desktop and configure and benchmark all through one application.

            Samsung Magician software is constantly updated and very customer friendly to use, appealing to all levels of customer technical expertise from inexperienced to "expert". In operation, the SAMSUNG SSD outperformed several of my own tests of read and write speeds for other vendors competitive offerings. At the time, Samsung was more expensive than competitor products. I bought Samsung. System boot times were incredibly fast.

            It does not have a built in blender which would be useful for my margarita parties, but as far as hard drives go, it works great!

                  When I purchased this drive, about a year ago, it was quite expensive... A little less than one dollar a Gig.... But at the time, it was one of the fastest drives available. I am still using it today and it hasn't missed a beat. Great drive and now that the prices have come down, I might consider more of them.
