You can walk right up to it. It looks and feels "fast" just sitting there. An amazing piece of tech, especially when you consider the state of the art when it was developed.

The BB sits right in front of the entrance to the Space and Rocket Center.

Go here and look at the very first map and note the little BB in the picture:

I was assigned there 2003-2007. The Space and Rocket Center was the destination for all visiting friends and family members.

Flash the firmware before use.
The Samsung 840 and 840 Pros are great, but they had initial firmware issues that could brick them. New firmware is fine.

Samsung 840 uses TLC NAND flash, which makes things a bit slow, and with lower endurance than SSDs that use MLC NAND flash.

SSDs that uses TLC NAND is supposed to be cheap, as the Newegg deal.

Mind that the 840 Pro series uses MLC NAND flash.
