    Just picked up a Samsung 840 Pro.

    The site lists it as mz-7pd256BW, however the drive itself says mz-7pd256.

    No 'BW'.

    Just wondering if there's a difference between the two?

    Little letters can make a huge difference in the PC world!

    Cheers.

    As far as I know there is 2 different package available world wide. One is the standard pack, drive and disk with the Samsung software and then there is another one which also comes with comes with an extra data transfer cable (SATA to USB), bracket and sata cable. The 2nd one is pretty hard to find and I'm not even sure if they still sell it here in Australia both at a retail or channel level.

    Hmm.

    Not fussed about cables and whatnot.

    Just wondering if I got an old stock or a different model, is all.

    Might have to mail Samsung if no-one knows off the top of their head!

    Cheers :)

    Resolved.

    For anyone wondering, mz-7pd256 is the model number of the drive, mz-7pd256BW is the model code.

    All the same actual SSD.

    Thanks to all who replied :)
