Just upgraded my daughter's Inspiron One that had a "regular spindle drive", what a change! Before that HDD was running at 100% most of the time, during updates or intense disk operations. It changed the whole computer to last another couple of years!
I have used the Disk Migration utility from Samsung's web, it did clone all disk partitions (recovery, UEFI, and the C drive), used USB 3 to SATA cable and the transfer was very quick (the transfer reported over 100MB/sec). Swapped the disks and powered on - booted in couple of seconds! (Samsung Magician reports 500MB/s both read and write, before was around 120MB/s).
Since the source did was a 1TB disk and the destination was 250GB, did clean-up the disk (got rid of previous OS installation in the windows.old folder among other things), before migration and used the Norton Utilities to defragment the main partition so it can be shrank and transferred to the smaller SSD...
My last Samsung SSD was 930, funny how the actual packaging and the drive itself is made very cheaply, no CDs enclosed and the drive is enclosed in a thin metal cover. Not that it matters, as it preforms :)
