The drive is amazing. Took boot time on my HP notebook (Win 7 Pro, Intel i7 processor, 16 GB RAM) from 10 minutes to 45 seconds. At the same time it extends battery life and runs much cooler and quieter. On the other hand, the installation instructions are wrong, and the migration software doesn't work. You must connect, activate and format the drive BEFORE you install the software. The instructions don't mention initialize or format, and tell you to install before you connect the drive. You are also much better off using a third party clone software (Samsung tech support can recommend some free programs that work perfectly). After spending 10 hours trying to install and run Samsung Data Migration with no success, the freeware ran perfectly first time and the drive came right up. The other software that comes with the drive, Samsung Magician, does work very well. It optimizes the OS, RAM and drive settings -- taking it from very fast to screaming blow you away fast.

Comments about Samsung 500GB 2.5 " Solid State Drive:
This thing was installed in a Lenovo K450 with an I7 processor and 12 GB ram. It turned out some benchmark numbers that far surpassed the rating to the point of absurdity. IOPs were like 160,000. Read Speads of 5300. (prol a bug in the software) but all I know is it's fast! super fast! Boot time on Win 8 under 10 sec.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Speed is King!
from Cleveland, OH, USA
This SSD has breathed new life into an older laptop. Really amazed at the difference in performance and now really wish I would have upgraded sooner! The included migration software was a breeze to use and installation was simple. Can't believe how easy the whole operation went! In fact, bought the larger sized version of this for my desktop. Definitely recommend this product.

PERFECT!! I'll never run a PC without one and have a backup HD for files!!
Excellect SSD for your money
Great $/GB value. I used to speed up a laptop that was a few years old and there is a notable difference. Highly recommended. I ran performance diagnostics and they were exactly as stated or higher!

Samsung 840 EVO 250GB
My Samsung 840 EVO 250GB works perfectly since I installed it. The Samsung Data Migration software worked smoothly, and I just needed to run it once. The Samsung Magician also works well.

Average delivery time. Easy install makes immediate difference in speed.
Good but the software doesn't work
The drive is good, and was easy to install. My pc is now faster. But the software that came with it did not work and I had to find a different way to copy the data from my old drive.
