SSD 840 EVO 2.5-inch SATA 500GB (Laptop Kit)

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I didn't realize what a bottleneck my old HD was. Replaced existing 500G platter drive in 4-year-old laptop. The old drive was starting to exhibit signs of potential problems, so I took the SSD plunge. Cloning existing drive was dead-simple. Install the app, and follow directions. The longest part of the app install was downloading the updated app, but no problem. I let the clone process run overnight. Installed the SSD. Required one prompted reboot after Windows discovered the SSD and performed necessary configuration. Boot time (from power-on to "windows ready") decreased from about 2 minutes to about 15 seconds. Apps which had become very slow to load now load in less than a second. Photos load immediately instead of 5-second wait. August 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Home Run! You will not believe how fast your computer runs after replacing a mechanical hard drive with this SSD. First of all it is so light; kinda of like an over sized credit card. Install it and see how fast it is. My computer boots in about 12 seconds! Opening programs is almost instantaneous. The only thing I can advise is don't bother installing the software from the CD. Just grab the latest version from their website. Nice work Samsung!!! August 5, 2014
