The Buyer’s Guide To Samsung 840 Pro Series SSD

When it comes to computer parts, Samsung is a brilliant name that cannot be ignored. More specifically, when it comes to solid state hard drives, Samsung is king with its flagship consumer 840 Pro Series SSD.

Samsung is one of the largest technology companies in the world. They make pretty much every electronic product you can think of.

Being a leader in DRAM and flash memory production, it comes as no surprise that they are also a player in the SSD business. They are actually one of the biggest players in terms of volume because their drives are used in Sony and Apple products.

Early last year the company caught the SSD market by surprise with the release of their 830 Series SSD, which was followed in late 2012 by the 840 and 840 Pro that provide awesome performance and focus not only on performance, but also on reliability and long-term performance stability.

This drive has been selected as many SSD professionals to be the best and fastest solid state hard drive they ever tested in their laboratories. Andrew Ku, a reviewer on Tom’s Hardware website said: “Although we’ve had it for a very limited time, Samsung’s 840 Pro is making a good first impression in our lab. It’s very quick, topping a majority of our benchmark charts. Moreover, it achieves its great performance while using less power than its competition. This makes the 840 Pro the fastest, most efficient SSD we’ve seen to date.”
