I have got to say. This little ssd is a breast. There are others that may be faster, but for the money and value in my opinion it does not get any better. It is especially easy to install the firmware and Trim support for Windows 7. This keep your ssd running in tip top shape, and for those of who like speed consider this an option. I have had other ssd's such as OCZ, Kingston, and Corsair where you normally have to go into the bios to perform firmware upgrades. This process is tedious and quite annoying. In other cases, tuning your computer for trim is also a hassle. Samsung has streamlined this process and made it simple.

I was building a new high end computer and decided to get an SSD as my boot drive. This was one of the cheapest 128GB I could find. I really like Samsung products, read good reviews about it, and decided to buy it. In a desktop though, you need to get an adapter. I decided to go with the SILVERSTONE SDP08 3.5 to 2 X 2.5-Inch Bay Converter. Everything fits like a glove, and my Windows 7 Experience Index rates this drive a perfect 7.9. You should install the Samsung SSD Magic and run the optimization though. Without running that, my index was around 5.9. it only takes a few minutes. Very happy with this product.

I am an avid MacBook Pro user and do a lot of hardware reviews for Apple products. I was able to get my hands on a dozen or so SSDs and test them out on a 2011 13" MacBook Pro and a 2012 13" MacBook Pro and have posted my results below on speeds, firmware and RMA.

All test were done with the SSD installed in the Main HDD Bay1, not the Optical Bay with SATA III on both the 2011 and 2012 MacBook Pro's. All 3rd party SSDs in Mac's require a Terminal CMD or TrimEnabler App to enable TRIM has OS X doesn't turn this on be fault.

The 830 is stil a very fast and very reliable SSD even though it's been replaced by the 840 Series. Samsung has a great SSD Memory Controller and provides excellent SSDs that have a great reputation for reliability.

It is really nice how affordable SSDs are becoming. The Samsung 840 is just coming out, and that drive is a little faster, and a little more power efficient. I don't think it is enough so to justify paying double the price of this drive though, and the nice thing about its release is that I have been seeing these 830 drive prices drop quite low at times.

This 128 GB Samsung 830 found a home in my new T430s Thinkpad which I ordered from Lenovo. That computer, like many new small form factor laptops, requires a 7mm thick hard drive, the standard 9mm are too thick for the case. Most SSDs can be modified to fit this spec, but this can void your warranty, and this Samsung 830 is one of the drives which is the slim form right from the factory.

I won't post speed figures, because many have already been listed, and mine do not deviate too far from these numbers. I have Windows 7 installed on the SSD, and am using a second hard drive in my Thinkpad to hold multimedia and more transient data.

The drive has been completely stable in its first week in my machine. Boot times have been very fast, and there is generally no visible lag in launching programs. If any of this changes over time, I will be sure to update my review.

Samsung has released their newer 840 and 840 Pro series of hard drives now, and Amazon states on the 830's product page that "There is a newer model of this item" with a link to the 840. However, the 840 series Amazon links to is the non-Pro series drive which is actually slower than the Samsung 830 series, so take heed that "newer" doesn't necessarily mean "upgraded." Given the choice between the 830 and the standard 840 series, you should still opt for the 830. It has proven reliability and faster speed. For the upgrade from this drive, you'd want the 840 *PRO* series.

It all has to do with memory architecture. The Samsung 830 and the new 840 Pro use Multi-Level Cell memory (MLC), while the new standard 840 drive uses Triple-Level Cell memory (TLC). MLC holds less information per cell (2 bits, which can hold 4 possible values) than TLC does per cell (3 bits, which can hold 8 possible values). That might make TLC sound better at first, but it's not. The MLC memory gives you better reliability, faster reads, and less electrical wear and tear on the drive, as memory cells don't need voltage applied to them as often in MLC memory since the information is spread out across more physical cells. TLC holding more information per cell means less physical cells that have to be produced to obtain the same rated storage capacity, which does help cut down on the cost of the drive, however. Unlike the standard 840 drive, the 840 Pro series also uses MLC memory because of the emphasis on performance and reliability.
