The Samsung 830-series SSD's are mature fully realized implementation of the beauty of solid-state drives. They perform, pretty much, with the most advanced SSD's available focusing on important "real-world" important benchmarks. While this series might not be the absolute winner in all performance categories their strengths have been chosen wisely. The drive is extremely reliable, unlike some of their competitors. The 830-series easily is cloned and exchanged in MacBook Pros such as the early 2011 13" model in which I installed the 256GB model. The only cons are, at the moment, unavoidable in that these units cost quite a bit more than traditional drives and are still not easily found, or afforded, in capacities above 512GB. That said the prices have dropped precipitiously from 2010 on all sizes 512GB and below making them affordable if still somewhat of a splurge.Samsung 830 SSD's have the right performance/reliability quotient. The kit makes an up-grade exceedingly easy and the reasonable price at Buydig with reliable delivery makes this a recommended buy for anyone seeking the amazing performance up-grade provided by solid-state storage. Tip for MBP owners: get Carbon Copy Cloner and Cameleon SSD optimizer software (enables TRIM without, in my case so far, any problems) to make your upgrade painless. The included softwear is for Windows users and these two freeware (donation) packages would likely be better even if the provided software was Mac-compatible!
SSD Samsung, recommended!!
from Clemson, SC
This HD runs great on my white macbook. Boot time or awaking from sleep is lightning fast as well as loading heavy softwares. The only downside is that is that it runs a little hot but other than that, great product!
Extremely good SSD
from South Carolina
We put this into an old tired Dell Latitude D830 which had slowed to the point that no one really wanted to even use it. This drive alone has made the computer so much faster that it is hard to believe. It definitely added some years of life back onto this old machine. This is a good drive.
Very nice SSD
from Seattle, WA
Replacing the old Samsung RBX series SSD. So far, it's been working well...
Great product that is easy to install.

Very fast and especially useful in a laptop that gets banged around a lot. Instructions were simple and readable.
Great product, and price

I had my laptop running for 4 hours, and it wasn't even warm to the touch - very efficient.
