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 youre 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.

A Complete, User-Friendly Solution
The Samsung SSD 840 Series is available with a simple, all-in-one installation kit. The kit comes with SATA data and power cables, screws, a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch adapter bracket, a SATA to USB adapter cable to facilitate easy data migration, and a mounting spacer so that laptops with traditional 9.5mm drive bays can accommodate the Samsung SSD 840 Series? slim 7mm profile.

4 out of 5 stars   Fast, easy install and transfer of data.
By HighSierraSid (Lake Tahoe, CA) March 05, 2013
Review submitted for Samsung SSD 840-Series 250GB 2.5" SATA III Internal SSD Desktop/Notebook Kit (SAMMZ7TD250KW)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Transfer Software Xlnt, A Bit Faster Than Hd
Cons: Could Be Speeder
Other Comments: I wish the SSD was overall faster. It is faster than my old HD, though. And the data transfer software made the install process quite painless. In fact, I successfully transferred the contents from my old HD which was larger in capacity than the SSD. (NOTE: My old HD was only a 1/3 full of data.) Overall, I'm glad I tried the SSD option since it satisfied my curiosity.

Review submitted for Samsung SSD 840-Series 250GB 2.5" SATA III Internal SSD Desktop/Notebook Kit (SAMMZ7TD250KW)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast, Easy to setup, Simple
Cons:
Other Comments: I can't complain about this SSD at all. The only problem is my motherboard is rather ancient, so the speeds are throttled down to SATA 3.0 Gbit/s. This is my fault however!

By MBG (Hudson Valley NY) March 05, 2013
Review submitted for Samsung SSD 840-Series 250GB 2.5" SATA III Internal SSD Desktop/Notebook Kit (SAMMZ7TD250KW)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Everything Is Faster, Increased battery life, Cut Boot Time 75
Cons: Samsung Disk Copy Failed
Other Comments: I had to use 3rd party software to copy my HD to the SSD becasue the Samsung software kept failing. It could not handle the Lenovo hidden recovery partition. Understandable but frustrating and cost me extra time. Next to a buying a brand new laptop this is the best upgrade available.

5 out of 5 stars   Do yourself a favor, buy this SSD drive!
By Hi4head (Charlotte, NC) March 05, 2013
Review submitted for Samsung SSD 840-Series 250GB 2.5" SATA III Internal SSD Desktop/Notebook Kit (SAMMZ7TD250KW)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Launch Apps Instantly, Plenty Of Space For Files, Works With Os X 1082, Fast Boot Times
Cons: I Don't Have Two Of Them
Other Comments: This drive has been very reliable as a boot drive and for storage. All my important files fit on this drive and run lightning fast. Not having a spinning disk reduces boot times to around 20 seconds, so solid state is definitely the way to go. Rarely do I see the spinning beach ball and I've had no problems with this drive. I would recommend this drive to any of my friends. As a matter of fact, one of my friends bought this exact same drive on my recommendation. He's thrilled with the new speed bump. I've not found any negatives for buying this SSD drive.

5 out of 5 stars   Fast and Nicely Bundled
By Al (Bellevue, WA) March 05, 2013
Review submitted for Samsung SSD 840-Series 250GB 2.5" SATA III Internal SSD Desktop/Notebook Kit (SAMMZ7TD250KW)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast, Good Bundled Software
Cons: none
Other Comments: This drive is really fast, Windows and programs launch noticeably faster. Comes with everything you need to install in a 3.5" bay, also includes a SATA to USB dongle that hooks up to 2.5" hard drives and lets you use them as external drives. Really good management software as well, it benchmarks, updates firmware, and configures the drive, with lots of explanations on what each thing does and suggests optimal settings.
