Bought this as a replacement for a previous Kingston SSD that became incredibly slow after about a year (search Google for Jeff Atwood's discussion of the Hot/Crazy SSD Drive Scale for everything there is to say about /that/).

As you'd expect the SSD plugged in just fine, and so far, after three months of very intensive use on my main development laptop, all remains well.

Unfortunately I really wanted to do a simple clone of my old hard disk, but the Samsung software provided for download (only!) didn't seem up to that task. So I put together a simple bootable USB stick with a Linux drive-clone system and did it the hard way, which worked just fine.

So: if you want a one-click transfer of your data, best look elsewhere. Otherwise this drive is just great.

Replaced the drive in my desktop with one of these and it's speeded things up considerably. Boot time (Windows Vista) has dropped from around 120s to 80s. The 3 year warranty is reassuring too.

The drive does slow down slightly over time, but this is easily fixed using the software supplied. I run the tune-up utility about once per month and this restores the drive back to it's original level of performance in a few minutes.

It was a bit of a faff to clone my old hard drive onto the new one as the software from Samsung had a "clone" button but it was greyed out. The software has since been updated and this button is now active, but I haven't tried it.

Planning to buy a laptop soon and will probably get another one of these to put in it.
