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:
I replaced a WD Black Hard Drive with this and the boot times and speed increase was phenomenal. You will love this drive. Easy to migrate too.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
Awesome 840 EVO SSD
Had this thing for almost a year now has not let me down yet. Awesome product!
Easy install, great software, slick design and awesome performance.
A product of high quality!
A wonderful SSD, thin, elegant, durable, fast, affordable priced.My Pc flying there! I wish that in future all items come with connection cables and mounting brackets for any type of SSD!

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.
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.

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!
