      One of the video editing computers for our TV channel lost a hard drive and we replaced it with this unit. The is a very high quality computer and the drive that failed was the software C" drive. So we replaced it with this 1TB solid state drive. Be aware it is a laptop drive so be sure to have the extra bracket to hold it firm in a desktop unit. This drive is fast, easy to install and has been very reliable for the first month we have used it.

      Comments about Samsung 1TB 840 Evo-Series SATA III Internal SSD:

      I installed this Samsung 1TB SSD drive to replace the mechanical drive in my Late 2011 MacBook Pro laptop with 16GB memory in December 2013. OMG! That computer had never been so quick and perky...even when new! I have a lot of apps on that computer, including Adobe Creative Suite CS5 and Photoshop CC/Lightroom 5. With the old drive, it took my computer a few minutes to boot-up. With this Samsung SSD drive, the computer boots-up and I'm actually surfing on the Net in just 20 seconds! It literally boots-up about 20 seconds faster than my iPad! All of my apps are such a pleasure to use now, since there is very little to no delays while using the apps. Previously, I only dreamed of having a computer that responded so quickly. This drive spoiled me so much that I decided to install one in my Early 2008 Mac Pro desktop computer with 32GB memory in August 2014. OMG! Everything I said earlier applies to this computer as well! I've built quite a few high-end PCs from scratch since about 1993 and owned my Mac computers since 2008. I've never witnessed such a tremendous improvement in computer performance before installing these SSD drives. Adding more memory can improve computer performance, but depending on the apps you're using, you most likely won't see performance enhancements on the same scale as what is offered by installing this SSD drive. While they can be considered pricey, SSD drive prices are actually starting to drop a bit. My second drive cost me $150 less than the first one within an 8-month span. I guarantee you'll be wowed every time you use your computer with this drive installed. It adds a whole new dimension to your computer experience that makes you completely forget about the extra money you dished-out for this drive. I mostly use apps such as Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, Logic Pro, Aperture, Pro Tools and Microsoft Office 2011.

      I'm convinced this drive gives you the biggest bang for your buck in regards to computer upgrades. I'll be putting one in my wife's PC soon as well. They're also very easy to install. Go online and search for videos showing how to install the drive, step-by-step. By the way, I read quite a few reviews on this Samsung drive and it appears to be, hands-down, one of the most reliable SSD drives made today.

      I noticed that when it is fully used, it get rather warm.

      Next issue would be its length of life. Wait and see….

        I recently bought this because my older hdd failed. I installed it and right away noticed the significant difference in boot up speed. I'm now on my way to building a new pc because the current one randomly restarts without warning. I don't believe this has anything to do with the new ssd. It's a great product and I'm excited to use it to it's full potential.

        Comments about Samsung 1TB 840 Evo-Series SATA III Internal SSD:

        I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y510P with 16-gig memory, two Nvidia GT 750M graphics cards with 2 gig each. The unit came with a Seagate hybrid drive at 5200 rpm.I do a fair amount of high-def video editing on this computer, and it was clear the Seagate drive was slowing things down considerably. Drive seeks were abysmal. So I ordered the 1TB 840 Evo made by Samsung.Installation was a snap after cloning the original hard drive with Samsung's included software. You just plug the SSD into a USB port and run the data migration program. I was a little surprised Samsung did not include a usb to SATA adaptor, but it wasn't too difficult to dismantle another USB/SATA external hard drive case and use its interface.Once installed, Windows 8.1 booted almost instantaneously. Video editing is seamless, rendering is even faster than before. Large programs load like lightning.Samsung also includes a program called magician which will optimise your sytem for SSD, plus it keeps solid track of the health of the drive.The drive seems reliable and well-designed, as are most of the Samsung products I've used. It's a little on the pricey side, coming in at over $, but in my estimation, worth every cent. As I use this computer in replacement of my old office and editing machine, I'm most happy with the reliability and speed of this Samsung SSD.

                I purchased this to replace my Kingston 240. Just running our of room. Samsung came with software to copy my image from my current drive. This saved me so much time re-installing everything and setting it backup. No problems at all. I added the magician software and ran the speed test and that optimize and ran it again. It was a little faster. I am getting the speeds they say I will. It is fast and I have lots of room for what I feel is a good price for today market

                  Have an older Dell Inspiron Laptop which was running a bit sluggishly and also running out of disk space. I decided to invest in a new/larger SSD drive and settled on this 1TB 840 EVO. I used the migration app which worked flawlessly (though I did need to update the application). Had to watch a youtube video to learn how to remove the old drive -- fortunately I am somewhat technically inclined and the drive installed flawlessly and the notebook fired up on the first try. Now the system is much faster and I think I have extended the life of my Dell notebook. The kids think it's great and were probaly surpised the old man has some skills.

                  great pricing at BHphotovideo. Installed on my 2011 iMac. Running beautifully so far. (Make sure to install fan control software to keep the machine quiet).

                  Boots up fast, opens programs quickly, and of course, so nice to have lots of storage available. Very happy after 1 week of usage.

                  Looking forward to pricing to go down in the future, as it will revitalize older machines with HDDs. Please note, expertise highly recommended when upgrading your Mac. Unfortunately Apple doesn't make it easy. Don't be penny wise, pound foolish. It's easy to break your Mac.

                          I have four of these in my BlackMagic Thunderbolt rack mount. Before that I had them in my old Mac Pro. These drives are great. No heat, fast transfer speeds. Am thinking of a second BlackMagic unit with more drives!

                            Paid dearly for a 160GB SSD when I bought this computer 4 years ago. The speed was great, but the small size caused problems -- it was always filling up & I learned a lot about Windows 7 & Adobe cache & temp folders while trying to clean it out.
                            All I expected of the Samsung 1TB was more space, so I was pleasantly surprised when it was also noticeably faster.
                            Migration was easy & glitch free with the utility on the included DVD. Cloned it from my C: drive. Then you need to use your BIOS to Make the Samsung 1TB the C: drive. All that went smoothly, and have been using it as the boot drive for about a week with no problems.
                            I does not come with hardware. It is sitting on a shelf in the desktop tower chassis until I can find a mounting tray -- not a problem since it stays cool & has no moving parts vibrations. Puget Systems kindly provided me with enough cables when I bought the computer so that did not create a delay when installing.
