Samsung 840 Pro Series is the upgraded version of its previous model, the 830 series. This new Samsung 512GB 2.5" SSD is the most latest and the professional version of the 840 series.
It uses Samsung's NAND flash memory, which is a fast functioning toggle mode. This similar feature is used by Corsair Neutron GTX, which makes the Samsung 512GB 2.5" SSD its direct competitor. The Samsung 840 Pro is one of the fastest devices available in the market in the current times but some of its tests reveal that the earlier 830 series was faster than this. However if you are a hardcore computer person or a professional gamer, who is looking for a reliable top speed SSD, the Samsung 840 Pro is a great investment to make.
The Samsung 840 Pro looks somewhat similar to the Samsung 830 series. It has a thickness of 7mm and a standard length of 2.5-inch. The casing of the drive is great and is better than the 830 series. This new drive supports the SATA 3 (67GBps) standard and works great with the previous standards as well. The only part that makes this device a bit unworthy of its price is the fact that it is not accompanied by any kind of accessories such as a drive-by converter or a USB-to-SATA adapter for connecting to desktop or other equipment.
The only thing that it comes along with is the Samsung Magician software that tests your SSD device and helps you to toggle between its settings. Although it may sound that the new Samsung 840 Pro has nothing much to offer in comparison to the 830 series, it's untrue. Apart from what it looks from the outside, it's completely different from the inside. In the inside the Samsung 840 Pro has 3-core eight channel MDX controller that is paired with Samsung's latest 21nm MLC DDR-2 toggle mode NAND. These super cool and sophisticated elements provide this device with eminent super-fast speed. This combination of new memory and heavy duty controller makes the new drive to use less energy than its previous models.
Above all the Samsung 840 Pro is compatible with all the leading operating systems worldwide, which includes Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. The new Samsung 840 Pro comes with a full 5 year warranty, which is the longest in comparison to all the SSD devices available in the market and is available in capacities 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.
