Summary: Supplied software moved system from HDD without any problems. Fast ( but as I'm using it via Sata II not as fast as it could be). Possibly not a Samsung issue, but it won't boot on my AMD chipset board with ACPI set in the BIOS Running fine on IDE but this may be contributing to the less than optimal speed. Obviously too soon to comment on reliability, but it does have Samsung's 5 year (limited) warranty.
Summary: If the review was confined to the SSD I would award five stars because it is that good. If you are a PC user the same would probably be true for the entire package, but for Mac users the software is useless. To make matters worse, Samsung do not make this software incompatibility clear. Indeed the opposite is true because the assistance offered to Mac users. on their website. is also useless.
Summary: SSD is a must have for productivity. I Swapped my Laptop HDD with Samsung 840 Pro Series 2.5" 256GB Internal Solid State Drive and experienced a major boost in performance. The transfer process is very simple, went smoothly and took about 1 hour. The only thing is that you need either an external hard drive enclosure with a USB interface (USB 2.0 is good enough) or a USB to SATA cable to do the transfer. I already had an enclose so I did not try a cable.
Summary: I did a lot of researching before I purchased this SSD and found it was rated highly on (not giving name of site, but I heard from my friend TOM, who is very good with 'hardware'...) and other review sites. I upgraded from a traditional HDD so obviously it is much faster. That goes without saying.
Summary: This SSD is one of the best available on the market right now, it is reliable and lightning fast . My computer boots up in under 10 seconds, even with a lot of programs and services starting up with windows.If you are thinking about switching over from a standard HDD to an SSD, this should be number 1 on your list. The drive itself is nicely designed and VERY light, when you take it out of the box you will be shocked as to how light it is.
