Lately I've been hearing how replacing the old mechanical hard drive with an SSD would increase performance of any PC. I wasn't sure how much of an improvement it'd be since I wouldn't be updating the processor. After I put in the SSD it was a whole new world. The laptop booted up in seconds instead of minutes. Applications opened faster and everything was more responsive. Until now I never realized how much the mechanical hard drive bottlenecked the laptop's performance (as opposed to the processor). I don't think adding more RAM can increase performance this much.
I want to let you know that replacing the hard drive was super easy. I was overwhelmed at first because I couldn't find any easy installation instructions on the web. I was afraid that if I did it wrong I would lose all my data (especially my photos) or brick my laptop because I don't have the Windows Operating System installation CD (p.s. you don't need it). I thought I'd share my installation experience for people who are novices like me.
The steps below are for upgrading the hard drive on a regular PC laptop (i.e. I'm not sure if my instructions will work for a MacBook). Most people will just be swapping out their hard drives and likely won't have an external hard drive to back up their data. That is perfectly fine. Also, you don't need the Windows OS installation CD because you won't be reinstalling any software. The steps below will copy EVERYTHING from your old hard drive onto your SSD including your Operating System, Applications, Programs, Photos, device drivers, etc.
Before starting you need to make sure you have the following items:
1) Make sure your new SSD has enough space to copy all your existing data. My original laptop HDD was 300GB, but I was only using 60GB. I bought a 120GB SSD and that was fine.
2) Small phillips head screwdriver (hopefully you already have one in your house)
3) 2.5" SATA III enclosure (purchased separately). I bought the following Sabrent USB 3.0 enclosure and it actually came with a phillips head screwdriver. Personally, I wasn't crazy about the Sabrent enclosure because it looked and felt cheap, but it did the job. Sabrent USB 3.0 To 2.5-Inch Sata Aluminum Hard Drive Enclosure Case (for 9.5mm, 12.5mm 2.5-Inch SATA-I, SATA-II, SATA-III HDD and SSD) Black (EC-TB4P)
4) Hard drive cloning software (Samsung includes this with their SSD).
BASIC steps to upgrade/swap hard drives:
1) Install SSD into 2.5" SATA hard drive enclosure.
2) Plug enclosure into USB port of laptop (USB 3.0 will be a LOT faster than USB 2.0).
3) Install hard drive cloning software onto laptop (Samsung provides the software with SSD).
4) Follow instructions to clone old hard drive from laptop onto new SSD (Samsung software makes it very easy).
5) Shut down your laptop, unplug the power, remove battery and uninstall old hard drive.
6) Remove SSD from enclosure and install into laptop.
7) Reinstall battery, plug in power and restart laptop.
8) You're Done!
Restarting your laptop in step 7 will be super fast. That's when you know that the new SSD was worth the upgrade.
It had a Hitachi 7400 rpm disc drive inside that was still fast, but I wanted to improve performance for audio recording.
First off: Buy the bigger 240 Gb version if you can. I thought my 120 Gb version would be sufficient, but it turns out with all the recovery discs etc, you need a little bit more space. I also degramented HD before cloning it.
I bought the Apricorn SATA Wire Notebook Hard Drive Upgrade Kit with USB 3.0 Connection with the SSD to enable cloning.
I thought the Magicion software that came with Samsung cannot be as bad as ll the reviews so I gave it a go.
Hooked up SSD via USB to Sata connection.
Installed latest version of Magician software & started cloning process. Took around 2 - 3 Hours. Flashed 100% the gave an error Hardrive disconnected.
I thought it was complete, installed SSD. PC did not boot. Put old HD back.
I reconnectd SSD via sata (no format done yet)
I then installed the EZ Gig IV software that came with Apricorn Sata cable.
Ran updater and ran software.
Cloning took 1 hour 20 minutes.
Installed SSD and it booted perfectly.
So yes it works, but stay away from the included copying software. The disk management software may be fine, byut I have not used it yet.
My first two drives were installed on Intel based machines where they are well supported and firmware updating has been completely painless. There is an exception that, after running into it and looking around to find it is not that common, may be a hangup for some users. Magician will not update the firmware on an AMD based machine and Samsung does not appear to be making much if any effort to address this. Install and use are fine, but without taking some registry editing work into your own hands, you won't get a two click firmware update like you can with Intel.
Plan on a little footwork for update or plan to just ignore them, as I have, on AMD (in my case an ASUS board and a 6 core chip running Win7). The drive has worked fine for me so far without updates otherwise and still serves as my primary operating system drive.

I learned this at my peril! We put the office computer on an SSD and everything was running fine, but made the mistake of putting in the Ethernet cable in the back.
Now when the computer went to sleep after 30 minutes (windows 7), it would wake again and go back to sleep every 30 minutes. This caused our SSD drive to fail and in the morning was totally gone when we found the computer had a black screen and said SSD Drive Error.
Im guessing it must have done this cycle all through the night, which caused it to fail by the morning. It was 2 months old.
SSD drives do fail, it is EXTREMELY important to back up your stuff to the cloud - i highly recommend using dropbox just so you are safe, and keep that folder as your main drive for your work at least. SSD Drives are actually quite flimsy and can mess up very easily as the contacts inside are very delicate. If you get surges of power and constant on/off states on the drive it can cause read failures. There are lots of help files in google on how to lengthen the life of your SSD.
We stupidly did not back anything up and spent 500 quid with an SSD drive recovery company to fix it!! Took 3 weeks aswell and it was a nightmare.
Learning point - If you have an SSD do not allow the computer to wake up with any of the devices except a keyboard. Not even the mouse as the mouse can be inadvertently hit and wakes the computer up. We have since put a USB mouse which does not wake (check google for how to do this) and just set the keyboard.
Also check your bios for SWITCHING OFF Wake Sleep settings so that the Ethernet cable does not wake up the computer when it gets a signal from the router.
I did an SSD+HDD combination on my laptop by converting the DVD bay to hold a HDD and it was definitely worth it.
On my i5 2.6GHz Ivy Bridge/16GB/Win8.1 Setup I can start Photoshop CC within under 3 seconds. For me the big benefit of this drive is the low latency and fast read speed resulting in the fast startup times.
The advertised benchmarks are what the drive is like in the real world - it is incredibly quick.
Samsung did release an update for a performance degradation issue however after the fix has been applied I have not seen any issue with the drive. The update can be found at http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/SSD/downloads/software/Samsung_Performance_Restoration_V11.zip
The SSD is very easy to install, for a laptop, simply remove the battery and unscrew the required holes to reveal the har drive, simply remove the sata data/power cable and unscrew the hard drive mount and bracket then follow these steps backwards except with the SSD, if you want to migrate your data, you will need a Sata to USB if you don't want to reinstall the OS simply use cloning software to copy contents from the mechanical to the SSD drive. You should do this step before installing the SSD in the laptop.
For Desktop users, simply connect the sata power from your power supply into the SSD then get a sata data cable and plug it into the appropriate Sata header on the motherboard.
For both laptop and desktop users, you will need to enter your bios and ensure that AHCI is enabled for optimal support. You may also need to make sure that your chipset drivers are installed.
The software supplied is pretty gimmicky, the SSD optimisation tool didn't do anything too productive however the maximum performance/maximum battery life utility is a nice addition - especially for basic users, this tweaks your current windows settings to best match your preferred mode, this was probably the most useful tool. Even though the software is optional I decided to test it out nevertheless for the purpose of this review.
Overall, this drive breathes new life into dying, or painfully old hardware, now that SSDs are a lot more mainstream I think that this piece of equipment is imperative to any new system build, if your system takes longer than 3 minutes to boot then this purchase is very effective and resolves all slow-loading in every aspect.
Coming from someone whose HDD had slow speeds of 30mb/s read and write, waiting for windows to start completely after 5 mins even with a fast system I thought I needed an upgrade.
The difference was clear with my first boot, I only wait about 20 seconds now which is an amazing improvement, and all applications start pretty much straight away. The look of it is very good too :)
In their magician software an in crystalmark with turbo mode turned on I got 4000mb/s read/write (I'm not even sure how that works) which is also amazing
