Excerpt: A recent person had a problem installing this card, but I can't imaging why? I purchased this 1TB SSD from B&H yesterday, and installed it the same evening. EVERYTHING was seamless. I installed and started the Data Migration app, pointed tot he C: drive, it selected the SSD, then I let it go. A short while later it was done. No intervention whatsoever.It was so seamless that after it was done, I was not sure which drive the Dell Precision M6800 was booting from.
Pros: Best Migration And Instal, Fast Connectivity, Quiet
Summary: I don't often rate something 5 stars, but this product excels! Fast and good capacity. My win 8 laptop now boots in less than 15 seconds, versus 90 seconds with rotating media. Put my swap drive here as well. It looks like a pc with 132 GB of RAM.
Summary: Nowhere near as fast as the OCZ PCI Express drives, maybe twice as 'slow' as an OCZ PCI drive (but safer). Can be a pain to install Win7 on but a Win8 install recognises it as an SSD drive. Amazingly light, cool running and easy to use in a striped RAID1 (how to get the speed up). The Software to move your PC to the new drive assumes your PC is fully functional and healthy - there is no recovery option.
Excerpt: I recently bought this because my older hdd failed. I installed it and right away noticed the significant difference in boot up speed. I'm now on my way to building a new pc because the current one randomly restarts without warning. I don't believe this has anything to do with the new ssd. It's a great product and I'm excited to use it to it's full potential.
Excerpt: I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y510P with 16-gig memory, two Nvidia GT 750M graphics cards with 2 gig each. The unit came with a Seagate hybrid drive at 5200 rpm.I do a fair amount of high-def video editing on this computer, and it was clear the Seagate drive was slowing things down considerably. Drive seeks were abysmal. So I ordered the 1TB 840 Evo made by Samsung.Installation was a snap after cloning the original hard drive with Samsung's included software.
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable
Excerpt: I purchased this to replace my Kingston 240. Just running our of room. Samsung came with software to copy my image from my current drive. This saved me so much time re-installing everything and setting it backup. No problems at all. I added the magician software and ran the speed test and that optimize and ran it again. It was a little faster. I am getting the speeds they say I will.
