Rated 5 out of 5 by Dommo09 Real fast booter
Having had one of these in my own desktop that was build just before Xmas 2013, and being impressed, I upgraded the Mrs' machine with the same item.
I know the 840 Evo is not the latest model but it's plenty fast enough especially as prices have decreased giving extra bang for buck.
It feels faster than the Vertex3 I have in my large workstation (though to be fair, as far as booting goes the workstation has a fair bit of specialist kit to initialise).
Really can't complain about these 840 Evos though!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mikedefieslife Works well
Not too much to say about this. It's an SSD. It works as expected. It's small and not terribly expensive.
It comes with a CD. I've got no idea what's on it. Who uses CDs in this day and age?
It would be nice if it also had a USB connection as well as SATA for portability. My old OCZ drive has this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrewBean Great SSD, Great Price
Just purchased one to replace my old kingston SSD which is a few years old. Very quick to load and install programs and very quick boot up/shut down. Would recommend for a primary windows/programs main drive with enough room spare to run a game or two off of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nobody Excellent SSD drive for laptop
Changed old laptop HDD for this SSD, windows is very fast with booting and normal operations now.
Very easy to install, just remove the old HDD from the bracket and install the bracket on the SSD.
I've completely reinstalled windows as I wanted a clean new machine. Even installing windows 7 pro 64 went fast.
Fully recommend this product as it is reasonably priced and good value for money

Rated 5 out of 5 by ukdave It works
Not much can be said about HDD's or SSD's. It works, it's fast, it's small and it's Samsung so we know quality is decent. Certainly a safe choice vs. the competition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by McstylisT Top SSD ,, the price/performance King !!
Used many SSD drives over the years. I became quite fond of the Scandisk range personally. They offered great performance, solid reliability compared to other favored ranges. But this always had a good rep and I had to try it at some point.
Well , I cant fault it. Its a sizzling hot ssd with some great speeds to boot. I paid £57 delivered :-O and its exceeding my expectations at present. I think the advanced triple core processor helps out massively. I am hitting 550mbs read and a great 535mbs write ?? the specs are supposed to be 540 and 410 but mine is screaming away.
Cant comment on the reliability yet, but most Samsung products in this area are excellent. So yes this has to be the SSD king at present .... no arguments what so ever. But still like ScanDisk at second place for overall price/performance/quality.
Get one today :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by Baconface A genuine plug & play upgrade.
Bought for a friend's media centre box. He was able to clone his existing windows 7 installation onto it no problem, & over the sata II interface on his board he now has a usable desktop in 11 seconds from a cold boot.
