If you're installing in an iMac - you should be aware of one issue: your existing hard drive may be a special OEM drive that has an extra cable attached to it for the heat sensor. This is not a standard connection so when you replace this drive with a new one, there is no corresponding port on the new drive for this. No big deal except after booting up the iMac thinks there's a heat problem because it's not getting any feedback from that proprietary cable. So what does it do? Turns the fans on full blast - the normally quiet iMac sounds like it's a rocket about to take off! A little research has found a free application that will tame the fans and make the iMac look at the standard temperature data available from the drive itself. Now all is good with the world again.
When I bought my Mac Pro, I loaded up on RAM (96GB) thinking that this would allow everything to run faster as there would not be as much caching to the HDD. From day one, I was disappointed that my Mac Pro was not faster.
A year later, in an attempt to address an issue where Safari was creating such big swap files on my 7,200 RPM primary drive, I tried this SSD as something of a desperate attempt to increase performance. WOW!!!!!!! I could not believe the difference! Everything runs faster. The OS logs in so fast that I cannot interrupt Adium from auto starting...... by the time I mouse over to the dock, it is logged in! THIS is the computer I thought I had purchased a year ago. In short, don't skimp on RAM but if you want to see an immediate boost in performance, switch to an SSD. Next up...... my 2011 MacBook Pro :)
Just a little by-the-way, I am not running any of the Samsung disk management tools. I have no idea if they would even run on a Mac but I did not even attempt to install them. I was/am so happy with the SSD performance that I didn't want to add something to my system which would be tinkering with how my drive operates.
Update- Mar 2014:
Still works great in my '12 Mac Pro. Bought one for my MacBook Pro a couple of weeks ago. The performance difference is AMAZING, more so in the MacBook Pro as it has a faster SATA interface than the Mac Pro. I have an i7 processor with 16GB of RAM. What seemed to be a laptop scheduled for replacement soon, now screams! This drive in this machine (the MacBook Pro) is quite possibly the most noticeable single enhancement that I have seen in ANY computer that I have owned in the past 20+ years. No joke, it is that great of a difference. In fact, with the SSD in place, the two big differences between my MBP and a new MBP are the Retina Display and USB3, neither of which are pushing me towards an upgrade for a while. I have probably extended the life of this workstation by at least one, if not two new generations of MBPs to come. I have the speed of the current model (minus USB3), so as I see it, my MBP has to break or something much better has to come out of the Apple pipeline.
Oh, swapping drives was a breeze, again. It just took longer this time because I had to hook up my external drive reader via FW800 instead of eSATA, like I could on the Mac Pro. Format the drive to be bootable, swap the drives, hook up the old one externally, boot into Recovery Mode so you can just copy the old drive onto the new one. Yes, it is that easy, provided you are comfortable with the Disk Utility program as that is what you are using to configure the new drive and then to clone the old one (while in Recovery Mode).
For installation, there are lots of YouTube videos that show how to install this in your Mac Mini. I recommend following the video that shows how to do this without moving or removing the motherboard. Before installing my new SSD I reviewed about 10 YouTube video tutorials that show how to replace the hard drive. Most of them said to remove the motherboard, which is a tedious and potentially harmful procedure to your Mac Mini. But I found a video that showed you can do this without tampering the motherboard! Totally do-able. Changing out the hard drive to my new SSD took less than 30 minutes. However, cloning my hard drive to my new SSD on the other hand, took almost 5 hours. I used Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) to copy my old hard drive to my new SSD and it was a breeze. I used CCC when I changed out the hard drive on my MacBook last year and it worked perfectly then too. Highly recommend this Samsung 840 EVO 1TB SSD!
Steps to remove & replace your existing hard drive with this SSD:
1] Place your Samsung SSD into a hard drive enclosure (I bought one from Amazon with USB 3.0 connection for about $13)
2] Connect the SSD/Enclosure to your Mac USB port
3] Format the SSD (follow the disk utility manager on your Mac) to Mac OS Journaled
4] Download Carbon Copy Cloner (free trial version)
5] Follow the steps on CCC. Cloning your old hard drive to your new SSD may take several hours
6] When finished cloning, remove the SSD from the enclosure.
7] Open the Mac Mini and remove old hard drive (I recommend watching YouTube video tutorials on removing the hard drive from a Mac Mini)
8] After installing the new SSD, close up the Mac Mini
9] Restart your Mac.
