I was fortunate enough to acquire a 250 GB version of the 840 EVO SSD and I can't tell you how happy I am that I did. Before the transition from my 500GB HDD I typically experienced a 2.5 minute cold boot load times. Shutdown-restarts were very very ugly. Game load times, in my case. for Infestation:Survival Stories and Battlefield 4 were cut down significantly which are now tolerable. A concern for me was to get all of my most frequently used programs onto the SSD for speed but I was very apprehensive about attempting it. As it turned out, I was able to get all of my most commonly used programs onto the 250 but, not 'all' of my programs and data. I'm happy with what was accomplished but I want more speed for all of my programs and applications. A 500GB is on my horizon and this 250 will go into my notebook. Can't wait for the battery life extension this will accomplish for me. In a 'one word' description, I'd have to say "get one now, you won't be disappointed!' Tkay, Kent, WA.

          The Samsung utilities are great and easy to use. I was able to mirror my old failing SSD without any hick-ups. I am getting over 11,500 iop transfer rates with performance mode enabled. This SSD is impressive.

                          I purchased this drive on the recommendation of a friend who has a computer repair business. He said this would be the best and most economical way to speed up my older desktop. I installed the drive and WOW what a difference. Boot time went from several minutes to about 15 seconds. I further increased the performance by installing a new 6gps controller card. This drive worked so well that I immediately purchased another Samsung SSD for my laptop. Again, a huge difference in performance.

                                    Never knew how much satisfaction I'd get out of switching to an SS Drive. Terrific product and I highly recommend products in the Samsung SSD family. I have three of 'em, and couldn't be happier with their performance and reliability!
