Summary: Got this for my computer. Works great and much faster than your standard hard drive. The mounting bracket didn't fit the best in my Dell desktop computer but I got it to fit snug enough. I don't move my computer around much so it's not going anywhere.
Summary: This is one of the series by Samsung for the most value SSD, that this is one of the best valued SSD among competitors. There are many reviews done that compares how some are slightly fast than the Samsung 840 when compared to a normal HDD SSD will blow your mind in loading time and boot up time. If you are trying SSD for the first time. this SSD is the way to go.
Excellent product. Here are a few thing you may want to check out before you buy.

Summary: The drive improves the computer's performance noticeably. I agree with other reviewers that the documentation is lacking, which costs it a star in the rating. However, the Samsung Data Migration program worked flawlessly. Don't bother using the Data Migration and Magician programs on the disk -- they are out-of-date. Although the programs will ask you if you want to update them after you install them, just get the latest versions from Samsung's site before you start.
Pros: I upgraded to this drive from the OCZ agility 2. This drive gives a noticeable performance boost over that drive. The included Samsung drive cloning software worked for me to get the data from my old SSD to the new one.
Cons: I would say the data transfer software worked, but is not great. If you were trying to transfer from a larger drive that wasn't near full it wouldn't work properly. Using Paragon migrate to ssd would work better in that situation.
Summary: I read all the reviews and blogs and thought "it can't be THAT simple". It was even easier than they make it sound. Laid it on the hard drive tray, secured it, slid-n-click into tower, plugged in to power source, the SATA to MOBO. Unplugged HDD. Clean install WIndows 7. Downloaded @BIOS and utilities. Downloaded drivers for graphics, disc burner, found the obsolete driver for my card reader that looks to be written by a techie in a Siberian goulag.
Pros: Silent operation, lightening-fast IOPS, and fire-and-forget ease of installation.
