Samsung SSD 840 Pro 256 GB

Hi Friends!
Got this SSD as a replacement for the Hitachi hard disk that came with my Acer 5750G Laptop! Replaced it by myself with a star head screw driver!

[!] Installation Pre-Requisites
Make sure that the AHCI SATA mode is selected in your BIOS before you install the SSD and your O/S
Download all device drivers from your laptop manufacturer's website before you proceed with replacing your hard disk! This would be less of a problem for desktop owners!

Delivery was quick! T...

value for money - on my Mid 2012 MBP 13"

I have a Macbook Pro 13" mid 2012. Its a new purchase but the machine still wasn't fast enough for my needs, specially while running resource heavy s/ws like Photoshop. I did some research and decided to go with the Samsung Pro series, comparing it with OCZ, Crucial, Intel etc. Apart from the good reviews it also helped that I could make the purchase in India, plus the Pro series has a 5 year warranty.
I was pleasantly surprised to have the drive delivered 3 days before expected, packed wel...

Good product!!

It is good product with good read and write speeds when speed is checked through a IO benchmarking software, but during random data transfer in real life test, it was not so great. It gave around 100-130 MBPS transfer speed when copying a 5 GB data from and to itself. When I bought this, I was planning to buy the cheaper SSD's like 840 series or Kingston's SSD which were around Rs 12000, but I bought this to get the extra performance from other SSD's. But, I think the transfer speeds I am get...

Decent Upgrade for Laptop. For desktop not VFM

Flipkart deliver was not very satisfactory. The SSD package was just wrapped in a slim cardboard attached with tape with no bubble wrap.

Good pricing by Flipkart. This drive is available for ~ $240 in US.

Windows 7 Ultimate, Visual Studio 2010, Photoshop load times decreased significantly, almost halved.

Not great for Servers or Workstations but for Laptops

Hi Friends,

Got this SSD as a replacement for the Seagate 250 GB hard disk that came with my HP Proliant ML110 G6. The SSD is so tiny in comparison with 3.5 inch Barracuda, you event won't feel it in hand. Attached the SSD to 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch holding case and pushed that in the HP Proliant Server, no extra step is requird.

[Please note ] Installation Pre-Requisites
Make sure that the AHCI SATA mode or Auto mode for (HP Proliant ML 110G 6) is selected in the BIOS before you install the ...

Amazing HDD

Tremendous performance increase of the 2 computers I put this in.

I started with putting this into a 2 year old high end XPS desktop into which it breathed a new life. It started performing even better than it did at the time of purchase.

And then when I purchased my new laptop, I took out the supplied 1TB HDD with it and swapped with this one. It now takes only around 10-15 seconds to login screen and around 3-4 seconds to shut down. Laptop is an i7 top end from Dell.

Amazing

I purchased this for my Macbook Pro 2011 Model. It gives a new life to my mac machine. I replaced my optical drive with old 360GB HDD and placed this SSD in place of HDD. So now i have 360 + 256 GB space in my Mac :-) I also used SSD as my primary drive so performance is much much faster now. Boot / Shutdown time is less than 5 seconds.

Great asset for those who don't want to purchase a new Laptop / Macbook but want a good speed.

Amazing Product

7200 RPM inside Late IMAC 2013 shows speed on 180 mb/s. So boot with this external ssd with an Anker Adapter with usb 3.0. The speeds now on Black Magic test are 400 mb/s both on read and write side. Boot time to half and apps open double fast. Very good product.

Superfast

This is a very cool SSD and fits perfectly in the budget margin giving a decent space in a relatively decent price considering the cost of SSDs as of 2014. The packaging and delivery was brilliant. No damage to the component. I am running Win 7 Home on it and also installed Battlefield 4 in it. The load times of almost all the maps have decreased considerably. Also looks pretty cool and is very light.

A fantastic HDD

There isn't much to write about it. I bought HP laptop and this hard disk had arrived the same day. I just opened my laptop and replaced its hard disk with this one. It was detected easily. I simply installed the Windows 7 64bit and since then, I have not had any problems. It is definitely fast and very light. 256 GB is good enough if you do not want to store movies. It won't be a good investment for that purpose not because of its performance but space matters. The speed can be judged by the...
