I liked it very much. Easy to install, reliable, expensive though.
Samsung 830 ROCKS!
from Plano, TX
Great product at a great price with Samsung reliability. Slim design is great! Bought one to replace my OCZ Agility 3 and it is easily twice as fast. Since then, I have purchased two more! Excellent performance that is easy on the wallet.
Super Fast and Reliable storage
from Massillon, Ohio
The kit came with everything I needed to install in my computer. The only thing I needed to modify in my computer, as mine is a little older build, was to remove Nvidia's IDE/SATA drivers and replace them with the default Microsoft drivers so TRIM support would be enabled. Great product.

My computer reboots back to my desktop in under 10 seconds.

from Atlanta, Ga
It is extremely fast and SSD software was a plus no problems ... untill trying to clone hard drive. Cloning software for was no good. Had to use Acronis to clone without any problems. Took off 1 star for that but otherwise great so far.
