Migration software issues

Summary: I had a lot of problems cloning my hard drive with the Samsung Data Migration software after several attempts and frustrations. I checked online on various forums about this issue and was informed to download the Macrium Reflect software (free) which worked beautifully without issues.
Excerpt: I installed a Samsung SSD drive to replace a hard drive that crashed in an core duo laptop. Drive was simple to install, and with the software on CD, was able to quickly configure the drive. Bootup from shutdown was a quick 30 seconds - instead of over a minute with the older drive. Being spoiled with this drive and gave life to an old laptop. So instead of buying a new laptop, I saved the money for the SSD.
Summary: Samsung's kit makes physical and sofware installation very straightforward. I was upgrading an XP machine to WIN 7 and decided to install a SSD at the same time. The disk clone apprach was very easy with Samsung's sofware and the whole venture was quick and painless. I love the 40 second boot time and fast internal operation. Great device.
The start screen? Zoom! Glad I got this. Postponed getting a new computer.

Summary: Fairly easy setup for the non-technical. Had an older (FYI, Dell Inspiron 530) PC. Used the old drive for music and documents and the precious SSD for the OS. Mind you, I installed a new fresh Win version, but this really speeds things up, and can still boot to the old OS if I ever need to. From a well-respected brand, I expected nothing less, but am happy.
Summary: I had on my hands an old laptop with a standard HDD with bad sectors. Swapped it with this SSD to give the laptop a new life, and so it did. It seems to often be on special. There's a nice little SATA to USB converter provided too.
Summary: These are good, but the Samsung Magician software that came with this product never recognized the SSD. Therefore I could not hit the "turbo" button essentially. Not a direct fault of the product, but I can't get the most speed out of it like promised.
