Summary: Unbelievably easy to install. Thanks to other reviewers here for assuring me it would be easy - I did the whole replacement of my HDD boot drive in about an hour. Highly recommend this - will buy another for other desktop soon.
This is how a computer should run. Stunning performance. Buy this before a memory upgrade.

Summary: Simply stunning performance. Before buying a new computer buy this and install it first. I'd recommend this before memory upgrades. I use a program that stitches together photos from 5-50 or more individual photos that can reach a gig in total size when complete. Only after I installed this drive could it keep up enough to do large files. Memory upgrades would not help, it still tapped out. This thing is so fast hangs are a thing of the past.
Summary: My drive was slow. Not up to the advertised speeds. Tried to install Samsung enhancement software but it said not available for my drive. Also noticed some other features were not available. Last resort I pulled the drive out and ran serial number on Samsung website. I got a 16 month old discontinued base 840 drive in an 840 EVO box. Wonder how that happened?

Summary: Man who ever has a hdd switch it out for even the cheapest ssd you will see a big difference! Now review on this specific model. It came with everything you needed brackets screws a sata cable the easy transfer cable for cloning and the cloning software all around great deal for the kit . The ssd alone it's has a clean look to it so if u have a windowed case it's nice on the eyes. Works flawlessly.
Summary: Bought in February and forgot to review. Been a great upgrade from standard HDD, really fast and so far really reliable. PC is in daily use by myself and my wife and shows no signs of slowing down. Would definately recommend.
