Samsung 256GB 840 Pro Series SSD Product Description

Unrivaled Performance
Samsung’s SSD 840 PRO Series is a high-performance SSD, capable of delivering up to 100,000 IOPS Random Read Speed and 540MB/s Sequential Read Speed—an SSD of unrivaled high performance. Built with an advanced MDX controller, Samsung’s SSD delivers high speeds regardless of data type, unlike competing controllers that greatly favor compressible data.
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 generous 5-year limited warranty.
Performance Sustainability
The Samsung SSD 840 PRO Series provides the same excellent performance throughout its entire lifetime even under extremely heavy workloads. In fact, the sophisticated MDX controller is capable of maintaining peak performances under punishing conditions for more than twice as long the nearest competitor.
Business Friendly Features
The 840 SSD 840 PRO Series introduces three important hardware features for businesses: Worldwide Name (WWN), LED Indicator support, and AES 256-bit Full Disk Encryption (FDE). The first two features make it easier to integrate the 840 PRO SSD into server and storage systems while the AES Encryption helps safeguard data against attack. By encrypting all information on the disk at the hardware level, there is no detrimental effect on performance.
Plus, Samsung’s Magician software has been completely redesigned and includes several business-friendly features including Drive Health Status, Total Bytes Written (TBW), and Disk Scan & Error Reporting functionality. This allows IT managers to monitor drive health and plan hardware replacement cycles.

It's fast, so breathed new life into an old Macbook Pro.
Like all SSDs, somewhat pricey.

Fastest SSD I have used!
Good software for getting the best out of the drive.
These drives do not like being used in RAID0. They are fast enough on their own anyway.
