I bought this to replace a failing 1 TB Desktop HDD, and what a difference! A lot less latency on read/write operations for an overall faster and smoother experience, even though in my scenario the drive is only running at SATA II (motherboard limitation). The magician software also makes optimizing windows for SSD performance a breeze!

Very easy install Samsung has good data migration software that comes with the SSD. no registering or jumping thru hoops to use. One thing though when u use the install all, it only installs first program you have to go back and install the second one . Had my ssd up and running in less than 30 minutes. your time will vary depending on how much data you have to transfer. Then run the samsung magician optimization software that comes with it and your good to go. This is a realy nice program has features like Performance Benchmarking and other tools. to get the most out of your drive. very easy to use and the interface is realy nice. Way to go samsung good job, very happy with my purchase Oh did I mention its a Samsung! Awsome products great value.

After comparing prices... the Samsung EVO SSDs are probably the best value on the market now. I recently bought the 500GB Model today after buying another 500GB EVO a couple of weeks ago. One thing that isn't mentioned very often is the SSD Utility. I've used other SSD Utilities before and I will admit that Magician is probably the best SSD Utility Software. As a veteran SSD Buyer & User... the one disappointment I do have with the current Samsung SSDs is that they no longer seem to come with mounting brackets. Perhaps to keep costs down.
