from completed build Illogical Increment

It was sold as an "HP spare," but take off the packaging, and you end up with Samsung MZ7PD256HCGM. I understand it uses different firmware than a real 840 EVO, but I haven't tested performance yet.

from completed build One Bad Mo'Bo!

It was sold as an "HP spare," but take off the packaging, and you end up with Samsung MZ7PD256HCGM. It does not have Samsung firmware, Crystalmark says it's much slower than a real 840 from Samsung. Not a smart place to save a few bucks. Still faster than mechanical though.
