Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellis169 Fantastic, Probably the best 120GB SSD you can buy
Samsung create the best SSD's money can buy.
The 840 is super fast and very reliable, I have had it for about 9 months and have had no problems with it and it is just as fast as when i bought it.
Also all the parts in all Samsung SSD's are made by Samsung unlike other companies who use parts from different companies so you know you're getting high quality and reliable SSD's from Samsung.
After windows 7 64bit install i was left with about 90GB of space

liking the responce on this, upgraded to this from a raid 0 on 2 wd's and its alot sharper, the boot up times faster yeah but im not bothered bout that, just general responce has vastly improved opening applications which is great, comes with magician softwarte too which tells you if your ssd is running at its best and allows you to tweak things to get it perfect. heard alot about overheating but this has stayed cool so i dont know what sort of file sizes etc people are pushing it to its max with but ive not had any issues

Rated 4 out of 5 by Andreas Noticeable performance increase compared to mechanical HDD
The supplied software does not work in my system so I have no visibility of performance parameters or any ability to tweak these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andy This is my first SSD, so i cannot comment on the speed, but if it is your first time as well then you will be amazed at how fast it is compared to the older style hard drives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daz Blindingly fast! My first ever SSD - can't believe how much quicker it is compared with my 1TB Spinpoint F1 disks!! A fresh Win 7 install boots in 5 or so seconds!
Makes no noise.
Uses less power than mechanical HDD, and generates less heat.
Not as cheap as a HDD for storage capacity - but it is a realistic alternative for a main boot drive if you have storage in a NAS or external drive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Michael My 1st SSD so hopefully it will be a good investment. Fresh install with Win7 was easy and successful.
Software supplied isn't of much use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jarrad Fast and reliable.
120gb for Â£80-90, was really that worth it for the price.
