Awesome product worth every penny. Buy one (make sure your system can support it for max performance) and use your old hard drive as secondary storage for the stuff you don't use (much)!

Solid SSD, very fast read/writes, great for new builds or for speeding up a older machine.

This was my second Samsung 850 pro. The first installed with no problems, this one, however, kept freezing and the Samsung suggestion of pulling the power connecter from the drive, waiting a few seconds then reconnecting did not work. Both disks were working under AHCI in the BIOS - which is the recommended setting. I changed this in the BIOS to IDE and problem solved, so far!
Research on the interweb shows that freezing is a common problem with ssd hard drives (not just Samsung ssd) and there are many suggestions for correction usually involving editing the registry (google "ssd freeze" and you will find them) - I have not tried these because they did not make sense. The problem, I think, is to do with the firmware and the way it interacts with AHCI, and the change from AHCI to IDE in the BIOS appears to have done the trick. In theory, you sacrifice a bit of speed - I have not noticed any difference, so you don't lose much.

Also note that you will get a new power plan in "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options" , mine is called "Samsung High Performance" which is set to switch the display off after 15 minutes of no activity and replaced my own power plan - took me some time to figure out why my screen kept switching off when I went for a coffee. I got into the habit of checking the power plan immediately after booting up and that did not work!! Then I noticed the Samsung High Performance plan which does not appear straight away after boot up, changed the setting and now OK.

You also get 2 pieces of software
1 - Data Migration - for transferring the data on a HDD to a Samsung (only) SSD
If you are transferring from a smaller HDD to a larger SSD - no problem, just go for it.

Used this to "refresh" my fathers dell xps8300 which had a fairly mediocre seagate 1.5tb drive. I'd already resized the C drive to 150GB when setting it up since splitting data from OS is ingrained. Installation was a breeze once I realised that the sata port I'd connected it to was only 3Gbps, turns out only sata0+1 are 6Gbps and sata3+4 are 3Gbps, of course the Dell documentation was abysmal. A quick switch with the ODD and is was ready to go.

The migration software was incredibly straighforward, I did not have to worry about clearing data as the OS partiton was 'only' 70GB. The actual time to migrate the data was 15 minutes (barely time for the coffee I made). A quick reboot with a trip into the bios to switch the boot drive and the ssd booted into windows and had switched places with the previous C drive which was now labelled H, the other partitions had retained their prior letters. I opened disk management and removed the drive letter from from H and the Dell Recovery partition which had been given the letter I.

After some tweaks to the ssd configuration for overprovisioning and maximum life and it was ready for use. Seagate speeds were 44 MB/s read 64 MB/s write, the ssd are 527 MB/s read 462 MB/s write which is 8 times faster. Boot time has reduced from 120secs to 35 but more importantly Sleep is much faster. Resuming from sleep is 7 seconds and entering Sleep is 3 seconds, in fact the first time I put it to sleep I thought it had crashed it was so fast!

The only non-standard config I made was that the Samsung Magician software disables system restore to reduce ssd writes, but as I still had the seagate hdd installed I re-enabled it on the ssd but set it to 1GB on the ssd, one of the other partitions has a modified restore size of 70GB so that is used instead. With some surprise it still had the previous restore points from before I installed the ssd.

Overall this is an amazing ssd and I am very happy with it.

I bought this after getting frustrated with my 64Gb OCZ Vertex 3, which even when it didn't run out of space would cause Windows to BSOD several times as week.

Installed with Windows 8.1 this boots in seconds. I've installed a couple of AAA games on there and watched load times drop dramatically. After a month of pretty heavy use I'm very pleased with it.

Before buying this I had a look around at reviews, Toms Hardware (Always trustworthy) raved about it and put it through some brutal testing.

WARNING! The instructions are incomplete! (I have previously, as a retired Techie, fitted an SSD to my Desktop PC without problem; in admitting that, maybe I should have known better - but for the layman, BE WARNED!)
Edit 2 days later: The Samsung disk and instructions are USELESS. In the end I bought for $20 (=£13) Paragon's Migrate OS to SSD 4.0 Software, (http://www.paragon-software.com/technologies/components/migrate-OS-to-SSD/index.html) which I can recommend. But even with this program, suggest you shrink your H/D to less than the new SSD capacity. It may still not boot when you fit the SSD and you'll need your WIN install disk to carry out a Boot repair - quick and easy. (It's NOT a FULL REPAIR install!!)
Using the Samsung Disk, and Having followed the the simple diagrammatic sheet, OS migration was easy. Luckily I had a spare 2.5" Caddy.
But when I fitted the SSD to the laptop, it wouldn't boot. Various techie tests showed the SSD as recognised and AOK. Even the Windows Repair disk thought it was OK. BUT no boot.
Having negotiated a far-Eastern call-centre, speaking a different version of my native language in double-time (I did ask her repeatedly to slow down), they eventually gave me the direct Support line for the product; this may help some others: 00800 80 10 8011 (Based in Netherlands). Helpful guy immediately knew the problem and the solution. BETTER INSTRUCTIONS SAMSUNG, PLEASE!
In short, you have to shrink the Volume of your OS to about 100GB for this 128GB SSD to find the Boot Sector.
If this is gibberish to you, don't even try - pay a techie to do it. Or go to the top of this review and buy the Paragon Program.
BTW, it comes naked; you need a Caddy + USB leads to use the Samsung disk to migrate the OS.
Now the SSD's running - and it's a great improvement on the 'standard' 5,400 rpm disk fitted to most laptops.
