This drive is blazing fast. My computer didn't have any Sata 3 connections on the motherboard, so I used an empty PCI-E x 1 slot to add a Sata 3 controller. Using that, I got a perfect 7.9 on the windows experience index score (7.9 is the best score possible currently). Using an Intel 320 series SSD, I had a 7.4, and using a Kingston SSDNOW V100+, I had a 7.0... so this Samsung is a step above and beyond other SSDs. Everything on my PC seems to happen instantly now.

From what I've read on the matter... Samsung SSDs have a very low failure rate, second only to Intel, but far better than other competitors. This is also faster than Intel's current fastest SSD, and it's much cheaper. Speed, price, and reliability... all that together is hard to beat. Add to that, it has none of the hassles that all of the SSDs with Sandforce controllers frequently have (Kingstons, OCZs, Corsairs, Patriots, etc.).

Buy this without the kit, if possible, or with the notebook kit if you want a USB to Sata adapter.

I found it to be almost worthless. The 2.5" to 3.5" bay adapter came in handy, but I've gotten better ones for a few bucks on Amazon (that could mount 2 drives instead of 1).

I had done a little reading about Norton Ghost a while back, and it looked like a nice program to have. At a $70 price tag, it should be. It makes it a difficult process to clone your old hard drive to your new Samsung, though. It is not capable of copying your recovery partition, either.

I ended up scrapping the idea of using Ghost to copy my drive, and pulled out my trusty bootable Acronis True Image CD (that came with my old Kingston SSD). It made quick work of cloning my drive, and didn't require any software to be installed on my PC.

This is the single best upgrade I have ever had in 26 years of building systems. This thing just flat out screams and is rock solid to "boot". No controller issues or firmware upgrades needed...ahhhh how nice - finally a killer SSD on the market. On a SATA III connection I'm reading 520 and writing at 399. I open Photoshop, iTunes and QuickBooks just for giggles now.

This was my first venture into SSD drives. I originally had considered going with a cheaper option, most notably Corsairs' FORCE series or OCZ's VERTEX/AGILITY. However, as I started to research those products more in-depth, I realize I would be playing russian roulette with my data as a result of the instability of the drives due to sandforce controller issues that, at the time of this writing, seem to be slightly resolved as a result of OCZ's help. In the end, my search narrowed down to the leading maker of this field, Crucial, and Samsung. Why Samsung? Well, Samsung was a brand that I knew and was very reputable. Moreover, it's flash ram was used by Apple prior to the android scuffle.

I ended up choosing Samsung's drive over Crucial's drive for the following reasons:
1. Success and Brand. Samsung desperately needed a success in the SSD field since it's first attempt was met with a tepid reception. This subsequent attempt was very well put together in my mind. The drive utilized the latest in technology (i.e. SATA III). Furthermore, the drive is sleek, smooth, and sexy beast. Lastly, the pricing is a clear indicator that Samsung wants to be seen as a leading competitor in this field.
2. SSD Magician. Samsung's accompanying program SSD Magician provides an array of well thought options with a very easy to use GUI. Moreover, with your permission, it highlights and then changes options that negatively affect the drive performance. Furthermore, the program allows you to schedule OS optimizations and garbage collection empties. finally, one of the most important selling points, was the ability to upgrade the drives firmware without having to jump through hoops similar to flashing the bios. With this drive, I could do it just from windows.
3. Speed. This drive is fast.

So far this ssd is great.

I personally own an 80gb intel 320 ssd, and a Ocz vertex 2(first generation, before OCZ went downhill...), and this drive is much faster than both. I was seriously considered purchasing an intel 320 120gb over this drive, but because this drive is Sata iii, I decided against it. I am glad I did.

I have trim enabled in Mac Os X using "TrimEnabler" Beta 2.0, if you haven't heard of it, it's a freeware app that enables trim in mac osx. One side note is, if your installing this in a laptop, be sure to purchase the "Laptop" kit, I accidentally purchased the desktop kit, which is about 5$ more expensive than the laptop kit. Lastly, the included "Norton Ghost" is useless to Mac Os X, I personally recommend "Carbon Copy Cloner" for cloning your drive, it's a freeware program that is actually recommended by intel for cloning your new ssd.

One last thought, My friend owns the Early 2011 17" Macbook pro w/ the 2.3ghz i7 upgrade, he is using a intel 320 80gb and his boot time is much slower than mine, im not entirely sure why this is, but the Samsung 830 definitely boots much faster than the Intel 320.
