Why didn't I upgrade sooner?

Excerpt: Installed into a 2009 Mac Pro. Used OWC's sled tray adapter (the blue one) in conjunction with this. Couldn't be happier.<br /><br />I did a clean install of Mavericks and down loaded a trim support app to make sure my write speeds won't degrade over time. I use this drive for my current projects and apps, and offload all old projects, photos, and videos onto traditional hard drives. Great combination.
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet
Excerpt: This drive is particularly easy to install. It comes with software that clones your old drive. The only improvement I would like to see is the ability to choose which partition you would like to clone if you have partitioned your old drive. If you have partitioned your old drive, this software tries to put all files on all of your partitions on the new drive. In my case all the files would not have fit on the new drive.
Excerpt: I replaced the boot drive on my desktop with the Samsung 840 EVO SSD. Cloning the old drive took over an hour via USB 2.0 using the Samsung utility, but it worked. It sat at 100% for over 15 minutes, but patience is a virtue, and once the process was complete, it was just a matter of swapping the drives. It used to take over 4 minutes before I could use my computer after a reboot. Now it takes less than 30 seconds. Apps launch almost immediately.
Excerpt: I purchased to replace the garbage 5400 rpm drive in my Asus N550JV-DB72T 15.6". Windows performance rating went from I think 6 to 8.1 for hard drive once I swapped this in. It comes with drive swap software on CD but I had to buy a USB hard drive adapter cable to transfer the drive image from the built in laptop drive to this drive. Software worked well to transfer once I got that cable and got the laptop open to swap this drive in.
