Does anyone know if the Samsung 840 is compatible with UEFI?

This is the drive on NewEgg.
SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

It isn't listed on the drive info and I can't find anything about this on Google. I know that some (maybe all) Crucial SSDs aren't compatible with UEFI. But I can't determine if Samsung work.

Thanks a ton in advance!

Sorry I didn't know how to post a link.

Shouldn't be a problem, or at least I've never heard even a hint of a suggestion of a problem like the one you describe. Given that UEFI is nearly ubiquitous among current-generation Intel motherboards, and given that the Samsung 840 is perhaps the most popular SSD for enthusiasts, I'd think that any incompatibility between UEFI and the SSD would be pretty hard to miss. :)

Thanks Fulgurant and jdwii!

If it's working for jdwii I guess it works. I'm ordering it.
