Most computers users have known the advantage of solid-state drives for a while, although this option has been out of their reach thanks to the expense, but this is starting to change. There’s not only cheaper upgrades to SSD, but you’d also find much more affordable solutions when purchasing a new laptop or desktop computer. The Samsung 840 SSD with 250GB isn’t the brands best solid-state drive, although it certainly shows how Samsung are the most improved when it comes to SSD. Today we wanted to point our readers in the direction of a few Samsung 840 SSD reviews, and also include a hands-on video review that details the pros and cons for this hardware.
Samsung 840 SSD and Pro visual review – if you prefer to see how good a product is visually, then you can see just that for the Samsung 840 SSD in the first video below this article, which delivers a closer look at both the standard and Pro versions of the Samsung 840 SSD with an overview of features.
The video runs for just under 11 minutes and doesn’t look at the Samsung 840 SSD in great detail, but rather explains the main specs overall, although the video creator does cover an extremely detailed review in text form as well. This can be seen in 7 pages for the 256GB Samsung 840 Pro Series here and also 9 pages on the 250GB Samsung 840 SSD here. Both of these reviews provide an introduction followed by a closer look at the interior and exterior, and then a number of benchmarks and tests.
Samsung 840 SSD with 250GB receives a bonus – we’ve heard that Samsung has officially announced some special pricing for this model, which runs from Black Friday 2012 until Cyber Monday. You’ll not only see the price discounted this weekend, but also there’s an option to download Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3 for nothing as well. You can read the full details on this offer in this article, which explains the different Samsung 840 SSD models involved in this promotion, 250GB only for free game, and their prices for this week only.
We’d love to know if you’ve experienced an SSD yet in a computer you own, and if so how much of a difference you found it? We’ve personally been using solid-state drives since the first MacBook Air included them, and our new 2012 iMac will have to include at least an SSD, but the Fusion Drive looks a favorable option right now as well.
