    Having never owned an SSD before I wasn't sure about the performance I'd get from one. But I'd heard about awesome boot-times etc. and I figured whats an extra $ for my PC build. After looking at some other cheaper SSD's with the same amount of storage space I was kind of skeptical about getting this particular one. But after looking at many benchmarks for other "cut-rate" SSD's I decided paying a small premium for reliable and overall better performance was worth it. Using the product was very easy, all I had to do was push it into the no screw SSD cage on my Corsair 380t case and then plug in the power cable and SATA 6GB/s port and I was ready to go.It was actually pretty surprising when I first un-boxed the SSD as I'd never felt something so light before. Honestly the weight of the SSD puts thumb drives to shame.The best parts are the boot times, and as a gamer my favorite games load easily and there are no texture bugs at all *Caugh* League of Legends blue squares *Caugh* and there not being much of a hassle unlike my recycled old laptop hard drive I'm also using in my build.The worst thing I could say about this SSD is that the casing does feel a bit cheap. In the sense that it feels plastic and tacky. But I figure as long as someone isn't constantly moving it like thumb drive then it's not really a problem.

      Comments about Samsung 128GB 840 Pro Series 2.5" Solid State Drive (SSD):

      Exellent drive, great price, easy to use, and awesome included cloning software.

      I originally bought a few of these drives as system upgrades for several desktop PCs. What I did not expect is that the performance of these SSD drives can turn an old Pentium 4 into a really useful and fast desktop machine.
      Probably any SSD brand with fast performance would do the trick, but this Samsung is one of the faster models and you do notice the speed difference.

      As an executive, programmer, and a video editor - producer there is nothing that comes close to upgrading performance in any computer, than a SSD drive. I highly recommend using SSDs for system drives and external drives for storage.

      Oh yes, and you will need to get used to silence from your PC, no need for fans or spinning noise with an SSD

      Excellent product highly recommended.

            I purchased this SSD for my laptop after buying the 256GB version for my desktop. It is an incredibly fast SSD that not only tremendously speed up boot up times on my laptop (previously 36 sec, now 7.5 sec), but it also extends the battery life of my laptop as well (also, it's ridiculously lighter than a conventional 2.5 HDD). Highly recommend this drive for anyone looking to speed up a computer and consume less power also.

            With 128GB capacity, it's more than enough room for my OS and Programs. It's fast....!!
            Any file or job that I'm working on is in a directory on this SSD, and when it's finished, I take the files off the SSD and store them on my backup drives.
            This is great because it saves wear and tear on my HDDs. Just bought it recently, but I have a feeling that I won't experience buyer's remorse.

              I purchased this Samsung Pro Series 128GB SSD as a back-up drive for files from my Samsung Pro Series 256GB SSD. The drive installs quickly and easily and has extremely fast read and capabilities. The enclosed Samsung magician Software makes it to easy to optimize the drive for the best possible performance and well up date the firmware with the click of a mouse. There are cheaper drives with this capacity but in this case you certainly get what you pay for. I highly recommend the Samsung Pro Series SSDs to anyone looking to upgrade their system.

                  Everything worked great until I installed my anti virus. I am not an expert. My guess is that Samsung Magician may be competing with Norton SONAR. Don't know for sure at this time. Have uninstalled Samsung Magician at this time and am also praying Norton indicators stop turning red.

                      I have only had this drive a couple weeks, but so far it has been good. I ordered this to replace my older Kingston HyperX drive, as far as speed goes though i haven't noticed much of a difference in my computer booting time or anything like that. However my motherboard only has the MARVELL 9128 controller for the 6GB sata connectors and NO native 6GB connectors from intel, therefor i chose to just stay with the old 3GB sata connectors for reliability and less things to wait for during bootup! I did my research before buying this Samsung drive though and I think once i upgrade my other hardware this drive will be amazing! WOULD BE NICE IF IT CAME WITH A MOUNTING PLATE AND SATA CABLE FOR THE PRICE THOUGH!

                            HUGE difference in booting and launching applications. I would have liked to buy a 512GB SSD but it wasn't worth it for me to put that much money into my old MacBook. I bought the 128GB SSD and put my system and applications on it and moved my current 512GB regular hard drive with my documents to the optical bay which I probably use once a year. Works great for me.

                              I use the SSD for intense read and write speeds, such as booting up, using Adobe Software and other important things.
                              I have found nothing bad about the SSD only great things to say about it
                              Cons: It is a bit expensive

                                I installed this drive as the primary OS drive for my Fedora 19 Linux installation. The installation went extremely quickly. Wish I had something other than Verizon DSL (slooooow but that is all that is available) and the installation would have been done even more quickly. Even with the slow connection, had to download or update over 2000 packages, the install took 1/3 of the time it did on my normal hard drive.

                                Boot times are now about 10 seconds and 3 of that is the Logo for the motherboard.

                                When I can afford it, I will get a 512GB for my data storage.

                                Can't speak to reliability since it has only been running a couple of days, but if it is like the other Samsung equipment I have, it will be reliable
