The Single Best Upgrade for Your PC. Features Sequential Read Speeds Up to 530MB/s and Write Speeds up to 330MB/s. Energy Efficient with No Moving Parts. Samsung Superior Reliability. Samsung Magician Smart Migration Software included.

The Single Best Upgrade for Your PC
With 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.

Superior Reliability
As the world?s #1 DRAM, NAND Flash, and SSD supplier; Samsung SSDs are designed and built completely in-house. The Samsung SSD 840 Series is optimized for exceptional, sustained performance and unrivaled reliability through its specially-engineered wear-leveling and garbage collection algorithms backed by a 3-year limited warranty.

Magician Software
Samsung?s Magician software has been completely redesigned with an extreme focus on usability. Magician makes it simple for users to maximize the performance and lifetime of their Samsung SSD. In addition, SSD Magician also provides system information and facilitates performance benchmarking, performance optimization, OS optimization, firmware updates, secure erasing, and over provisioning. Newly introduced Drive Health Status, Total Bytes Written (TBW), and Disk Scan & Error Reporting functionality make Magician one of the most useful storage utilities available.

4 out of 5 stars   Nice, big laptop SSD
By Chief Wizard (Leesburg, VA) June 11, 2013
Review submitted for Samsung 500GB 840 Series 2.5" Solid State Drive (SAMMZ7TD500BW)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: I have an HP Touchsmart laptop. The standard hard drives in this thing die every 3 or 4 months regularly. I bought this SSD to hopefully eliminate the HD failures. A nice by-product is the drive speed. Windows 7 boots up in less than 20 seconds. This is an older Core i3 processor with a SATA 2 interface, so it's not the speediest thing, but I am pleased with the way this drive installed and with the way it works.

5 out of 5 stars   A must-have upgrade for laptops.
By Walkie (San Jose, Ca) April 02, 2013
Review submitted for Samsung 500GB 840 Series 2.5" Solid State Drive (SAMMZ7TD500BW)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Very quiet, Very fast, No Fragmenting Penalty
Cons:
Other Comments: I installed this SSD in an older 17" 2.8GHz Core2Duo MacBookPro that had a 500GB hard drive. The performance improvement was remarkable and it runs so well I'm extremely pleased with the purchase. To copy my old drive image onto the new drive, I used SuperDuper for the OSX image, and the latest version of WinClone for the BootCamp partition. It worked flawlessly, just like the new Samsung SSD.

5 out of 5 stars   One word - Amazing!
By Fuddie (British Virgin Islands) March 09, 2013
Review submitted for Samsung 500GB 840 Series 2.5" Solid State Drive (SAMMZ7TD500BW)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Speed
Cons: no mac software version
Other Comments: I had heard about how fast applications load with these SSD drives but having experienced it myself, one word describes it! AMAZING. Unfortunately the installation process took a little longer than anticipated and this was because the migration software included with the drive does not include a MAC version. The tools included on my MacBookPro did not do the trick seamlessly so I had to go find an alternative. Found a perfect tool in Carbon Copy Cloner and this did the magic for me. Should have made this purchase decision a long time ago! The performance of my MacBookPro is now simply amazing.

5 out of 5 stars   Works great for a boot drive
By Jabber (San Francisco, CA) March 05, 2013
Review submitted for Samsung 500GB 840 Series 2.5" Solid State Drive (SAMMZ7TD500BW)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: As noticeably fast as you would expect an SSD, even if it is TLC. Had zero problems installing and booting Linux Ubuntu 12.10 from it. This drive is TLC, which is the worst of the three nand memory types, but this 500GB drive is large enough that you can expect at least 7 years use. Some elitist technophiles will argue this is a bad SSD on the grounds it is TLC, but this drive is perfect for average consumer use.

5 out of 5 stars   You owe it to yourself to move to SSDs
By Michael (Duvall, WA) March 04, 2013
Review submitted for Samsung 500GB 840 Series 2.5" Solid State Drive (SAMMZ7TD500BW)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Small, Fast, Light, Low power, Quiet
Cons: Unknown lifetime, Update Tool Only Windows
Other Comments: I have a few of these now. They are a software developer's best friend as the non-moving-parts bit makes large software builds much faster (they usually are dominated by I/O and, more specifically, latency) For the laptop it was amazing how much quieter the laptop became with this rather than my high-perf 7200RPM drive. The laptop also lasted much longer on battery and, overall, feels faster due to the lower latency and the lack of spin-up delay.
