5 out of 5 eggsThe best of their time, but pricey.

Pros: Fast, durable, nice software, and attractive design. Simply the best of their time. A nice way to bring new life to an older laptop.

Cons: Too expensive in my opinion. If buying today, they are 2-3 times more expensive than the current lineup.

Other Thoughts: I wish they kept this line going while lowering the price. Have owned for approx 1.5 years and never a problem. For some reason AOL Desktop is not compatible with this SSD. I have not had time to try with any other SSD brand.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Fast

Pros: 15 sec boot time, 8 sec shut down time.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Used as laptop hard drive for my wife. She uses Adobe Illustrator so we learned that when she is working with large files, she needs more free space to use as the scratch disk because she was getting errors to that effect. I just purchased the 250GB 840 drive for that reason. Other than that this drive has been fantastic.

5 out of 5 eggsNew Standard for New Builds

Pros: 7.9 WEI score. Desktop computer boots fast and programs open in a snap. Windows 7 installed in minutes. Never needs defrag or indexing. Comes with handy usb cable.

Cons: Pricey at $135. Had to buy bracket with it. Hung Norton cd from a tree. Seems to repel coyotes OK. SATA III cable not included.

Other Thoughts: Installed in new build. System disk is no longer the weak link. Thanks to reviewers below whose guidance I used to set up the BIOS for this drive. Disable scheduled defrag and indexing. Not needed and may cause wear and tear.

2 out of 5 eggsfrustrated

Pros: can't rate higher since I can't install it. I will have to reevaluate, if I don't rma it.

Cons: I paid extra for this product because it came with a "full" installation package but there was no bracket in the box and no activation code for Norton Ghost. It won't clone without one and presumably they want more money for that. I have also read here that it doesn't clone everything anyway. I could have bought an 840 for about $88 and a $5 bracket, and may still.

Other Thoughts: Newegg's always been good about this sort of thing so I will see what they can do.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Drive for the Price

Pros: Solid constant performance. Runs cool.

Cons: Would buy another one for other computer if it was still on sale..

Other Thoughts: After my OCZ SSD kept giving me constant headaches I was worried I would get the same with another SSD based on a lot of other reviews I was coming across. Samsung though has renewed my faith in SSD hard drives.

5 out of 5 eggsNo more static!

Pros: I am not an audiophile but I have incredibly sensitive ears. I enjoy music through my headset but when ever I would use the inline controller with the headset I would get a type of mechanical static but not anymore!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Headset amp is wonderful and the driver support sucks. Google uni xonar and use that instead.

Don't forget to change the bios to turn off onboard audio and to uninstall the drivers!

5 out of 5 eggs"Not to Shabby"

Pros: First off... it"s a Samsung. Need I say much more. My home is filled with Samsung products and I don't even own stock in the company. I"m running it in a 990fx UD5 Gigabyte MB w/ Windows 8, 24g of 1833 GSkill, an 8350 AMD 8 core CPU and 6800 series Video. I am getting all 7.9's on Windows and the boot times have jumped from 44 seconds to 13.3 seconds on restarts. And this is the 128g, 830 Model.
What would the 840 do? This thing is way fast. Install was a breeze with no problems what so ever. My machine has not been shut off since Oct. 12th, and not one lick of trouble. And also, Thanks to NewEgg for the speedy service.

Cons: It doesn't keep my coffee to warm at all...

Other Thoughts: Love this drive and would recommend it to all that are looking for a small SSD for upgrading. Not so much money and really fast... And, like I said, it's a Samsung. And again... Thanks NewEgg!

5 out of 5 eggsSSD FLYS, GHOST CRASHED

Pros: Instaled in a Dell mini 1012 w/ 2GB RAM, and 1.66Mhz CPU and even with the hardware limitaions of the mini this SSD was a good upgrade,IMO. Faster startups, shutdowns and general operating sppeds along with cooler operations and extended batter life. The mini is only SATA II BTW. Already bought one for my wife's Dell 1120 Insipron.

Cons: The included Norton Ghost was extremely frustrating. Tell you upfront it will not copy the recovery partition, or Dell utility partition. Basically let me clone the C partition, but that woul;d not boot of course. No master boot record, etc. My neighbor who uses Norton commercial software to maintain and clone servers could not get it to work. Ended up buying Newegg Item# N82E16812161004 for $14 and had the complete drive cloned in 40 minutes. Sheez, what a waste that Ghost is. I should have bought the bare SSD drive with the Apricon kit and saved money and about 6 hours of wasted time.

Other Thoughts: Already recieved the Samsung bare drive and used it to clone the HDD of the Inspiron 1120. Same thing, 40 minutes ffor complete clone including the Dell utility and recovery partitions. EZ GIG IV was so simple to use

4 out of 5 eggsEggcelent, but beware

Pros: Fast. Really fast. Easy to install. Comes with handy USB to SATA adapter for migration

Cons: Beware, it does NOT actually come with migration software. It only links you to a demo version of North Ghost (ugh!), which you have to purchase in order to actually migrate your system.

Other Thoughts: I used Paragon MigrateOS to transfer my system to the new drive, but you can also use your favorite image backup/restore program as well.
