    wondering if anybody tried to use Samsung 840 Pro 512Gb Dell or other OEM versions in MacMini 2012, 2010 or 2009? Any compatibility issues?
    I'm not sure if firmware can be even upgraded on those?

    I don't see why it won't work.

    Use a USB3/SATA dock to initialize the drive, install an OS onto it, and do a "test boot" BEFORE you attempt to install the drive inside the Mini.

    Doing this could save you considerable time and trouble...
