Windows 7: Samsung 840 Pro defective?

Gary, also if you run a lot of benchmarks in too short a time, it will slow the SSD down. Try not running benchmarks for a couple of days and see if the numbers go back up.

Windows 7 Ultimate Retail Box (64-bit installed) + Service Pack 1

Scaring me a bit, I haven't put it in yet, but I have 128gig 840 Pro, waiting for me, is there anything on the CD it came with I should use or anything else to be aware of?

Planned on using old SSD as utilities/pagefile.sys drive and a fresh 7 64-bit Ultimate on the 840 Pro.

I didn't get a CD with mine, I downloaded the software from Samsung. Go ahead an use yours, My PC is probably being stupid, it does things no one else's does.
