Summary: I have bought this after looking at great reviews it had. It looks like it is hit or miss kind of thing. I cannot copy anything to the drive that is shipped to me; it keeps giving me unable to write at sector error. I have tried everything that I found in web/forums. Samsung customer service is no help. Sadly, I had to return the item.
Summary: It didn't work with my MacBook Pro 13-inch mid 2009 (MacbookPro5,5) or MacBook 13-inch late 2008 Aluminum unibody (Macbook5,1). The MBP didn't recognize the drive at all and totally invisible from Disk Utility and System Profiler. The MB recognized it but kept getting stuck during OS X (10.8) installation, or start up after installing the OS through the USB adapter. It worked with both Macs through USB but not through the internal SATA port.
Summary: This SAMSUNG SSD 830 256GB was bought with a clear promise of VAT cashback by SAMSUNG UK. I have followed the claim back procedure by the letter and without any delay with all documentation provided and letters sent by registered post and online as pdf documents as specified. Despite this SAMSUNG UK rejected the claim in an automated fashion as follows : "need proof that shows eact product detailsof purchase".
Summary: Erreichte an einem MSI P55-GD65 Mainboard mit Intel i7-860 Geschwindigkeiten von ~ 70% klassischer Festplatten, Bootzeit frisches Win7 45-70s, gefühlte Geschwindigkeit beim arbeiten ebenfalls lahm... dafür braucht man dann keine SSD. Interessanterweise waren die Benchmarks des Samsung-Tools OK... Lt. Cyberport-Hotline vermutlich inkompatibilität mit Mainboard, man solle die Kompatibilitätslisten vom Board nach einem passenden Typ durchsuchen...
