Samsung SSD 840 / 840 Pro review: every model tested

Samsung 840 120GB/250GB/500GB and 840 Pro 128GB/256GB/512GB



Late September Samsung launched the 840 Pro and 840 SSD series, both using the new Samsung MDX controller.  It turned out that the Samsung 840 Pro was the fastest SSD at time, even if the OCZ Vector has now managed to catch up. The Samsung 840 stood out because it was the first SSD to employ triple level cell memory. This makes the SSDs cheaper to make.

In our original review we only tested the Samsung 840 Pro 256 GB and the Samsung 840 250 GB models. Since then Samsung sent us all of the other ones as well, so now we are going find out how fast the other capacities are.
