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:
The drive was easy to install and my Win 7 Ultimate recognized and implemented management automatically. It is very fast and the provided management software is also very good. Overall an excellent drive, I have not negative feedback.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best purchase I've ever made to speed up my PC.
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.

Great Desktop Drive

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!
Best SSD on the Market
from NW Florids
I have about 15 SSDs, 11 are Samsung. I have everything from 830 SSDs to 850 Pro's and they all operate extremely well and are very reliable. The reliability are what is most important to me. The speed is important, but not quite so much as reliability. Fortunately, these have both and I am quite happy with them. When I buy another it will be a Samsung. Another thing that is very important is customer service. I once had to RMA one of them. The service was excellent and it ended up being one of the easiest and fastest RMAs I have ever done on anything. I was very impressed. Kudos to Samsung for an excellent product and excellent customer service. ZI only hope the continue on their current path.
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.
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.
