The Single Best Upgrade for Your PC
With its simple 3-Step migration solution and industry-leading IOPS performance, the Samsung SSD 840 Series is the single best upgrade you can make for your PC. Samsung’s new SmartMigration software takes the guesswork and headache out of moving your operating system and precious data to your new SSD. Once you’re up and running, the 840 Series’ amazing IOPS speeds empower you to multitask like never before.
Upgrading to an SSD is the easiest and most economical way to breathe new life into an aging PC. Today, most PC performance woes are the result of slow read and write speeds on behalf of the main storage device, not a lack of CPU performance. Upgrading to a Samsung SSD 840 Series can breathe new life into your old PC by enhancing boot-up speed, application loading, and multi-tasking performance.
As the world’s #1 DRAM, NAND Flash, and SSD supplier; Samsung SSDs are designed and built completely in-house. The Samsung SSD 840 Series is optimized for exceptional, sustained performance and unrivaled reliability through its specially-engineered wear-leveling and garbage collection algorithms backed by a 3-year limited warranty.
Samsung’s Magician software has been completely redesigned with an extreme focus on usability. Magician makes it simple for users to maximize the performance and lifetime of their Samsung SSD. In addition, SSD Magician also provides system information and facilitates performance benchmarking, performance optimization, OS optimization, firmware updates, secure erasing, and over provisioning. Newly introduced Drive Health Status, Total Bytes Written (TBW), and Disk Scan & Error Reporting functionality make Magician one of the most useful storage utilities available.

Forget about the easy migration software.Its a trial version of Norton Ghost, that requires registration to use the disk clone feature. Its not compatible with windows 8 anyway and has to be run in compatibility mode. I wouldn't trust transferring my data with this setup.
The best SSD i got for a nice low prise. A lot of spaces is the best for a gamer like me. No more problem whit my game and the firmware or updateble whitout erasing all data so a good product to invest.
For a relative tech newbie like me, I was surprised at how easy it was to clone the new drive with the Samsung Magician software. It was literally plug and play. Once I installed the new drive the laptop booted with no problems. I then used the partition software to partition the new drive as recommended and installed the update, and I was ready to optimize the drive. Worked flawlessly for me. This is the first time I have ever opened the back of a laptop, and even I had no problems with swapping out the drives.
Its a lot of money! But for a laptop or netbook with only one drive bay, its an awesome choice if you need or can afford it. Its by far the best looking SSD I have ever owned(Intel,Sandisk,Corsair,Crucial,Mushkin) I'm a huge fan of SSD boot drives, I'm not brand loyal, looked seriously at Sandisk, Adata or a Crucial.. But what sold me was the IOPS of the new Samsung. The drive imaging software kept having fatal errors, needless to say I had to do a total HD recovery from DVD for my laptop, not a big deal, most likely had something to do with a hidden system restore partition on the HD that came with my laptop... Not a huge deal, but a little bit of a bump in the road. I was under the impression I would get a Norton Ghost key, but sadly not anymore... The drive magician software that come with the drive is pretty good though. For a decent laptop or thin and light with only one drive bay, I would highly recommend this drive, but for a desktop or 17" laptop that you can install 2 or more drives, I'd suggest a smaller 120-240GB SSD... I paid .80 cents per GB all said and done, which is a fair price to me.
