Comments about Samsung 840 Series 500GB Solid State Hard Drive with Install Kit:
Since I use my laptop for running virtual machines for experimentation I decided to replace my old mechanical 500gb drive with the new 840 500gb ssd drive. It only took a little over an hour to migrate Windows 8 Pro along with all of my other applications and files. It took 10 minutes to exchange the drive and booted the system. It is up and running in less than a minute. The only thing is that my laptop does not support SATA III so it is not running at full performance. I will most likely install a Terabyte drive when prices drop.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I installed this SSD in my 2012 MacBook Pro after becoming frustrated with the performance of my VMware Fusion lab environment running on the internal spinning disk it came with. What a difference! Actions like suspending a VM now take 5 seconds instead of over 2 minutes, restarting a pair of VMs simultaneously finishes in 10 seconds, and all while running several native applications without issue. I give it 4 stars on the feature set because I'd like to see the Magician software available in a Mac version, but other than that I have no regrets with this purchase.
A good choice
I finally got an ssd, and I think this one is the best blend of space, performance, cost, and reputability as of the day i bought it.
Excellent performance SSD

These SSDs are great! I have two of them, one in my gaming laptop and one in my ps3. Both the laptop and the ps3 are running faster, and my pc boots up very quickly. Don't bother using the CD that came with the SSD for your PC, just download the new software from the site.
