I'm glad that the firmware worked out well for you.

I agree with what you're saying, if I was going to get another SSD today, I would buy the same one again. If money wasn't an issue, I would probably splurge on the 840 Pro (for the ego and better write speeds)

1) downloaded the "Mac OSX" ISO from Samsung
2) Used Disk Utility to burn it to a CD/DVD.
3) Rebooted and selected the newly burnt CD/DVD and followed the firmware upgrade procedure.
4) Firmware upgraded to DXT07B0Q and everything running great.
5) I also enabled Trim by using Chameleon SSD Optimizer. Super easy, and other good tweaks with this application.

I do have to mention that I tried for 3 hours to create a bootable USB Key with the Samsung firmware ISO, yet I never was able to get Disk Utility to do it

Has anyone else managed to upgrade their firmware on their Samsung 840 SSD? How did you do it?

In my case, my SSD is not recognised.
What is your MBP model ? (mid-2012) ?
