Outstanding Performance in Multi-tasking
The Samsung SSD 830 Series boasts superior random read speeds (up to 80,000 IOPS) and faster sequential read and write
speeds (up to 520 MB/s & 400 MB/s respectively). It's the ideal solution for your everyday computing needs, such as web browsing, document creation, viewing or editing multimedia files, playing PC games, etc.

Superior Reliability
As the world's #1 DRAM, NAND Flash, and SSD supplier, Samsung has unique, industry-leading engineering resources,
technologies, and manufacturing processes as well as more stringent quality and testing standards. All Samsung SSDs are designed and built completely in-house, rather than sourcing generic parts from the market. The Samsung SSD 830 Series is optimized for exceptional, sustained performance and unrivaled reliability through its specially-engineered wear-leveling and garbage collection algorithms.

Industry-leading Design
The Samsung SSD 830 Series features stunning design and precision engineering ? inside and out. It measures only 7mm thick, so
it can even accommodate the latest ultra-slim laptop PCs.

Magician Software
Samsung's SSD Magician software eliminates the confusion and uncertainties of SSD management, making it simple for users to
maximize the performance and lifetime of their Samsung SSD. The software helps to maintain the SSD at its peak condition, giving you the same great performance and reliability throughout the life of your PC. In addition to its performance maintenance features, SSD Magician also provides system information and facilitates performance benchmarking, performance optimization, OS optimization, firmware updates, secure erasing, and over provisioning.

A complete, user-friendly Solution
The Samsung SSD 830 series is available with both desktop and laptop installation kits. The desktop kit comes with SATA data
and power cables, screws, and a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter bracket. The laptop kit includes a SATA to USB adapter cable to facilitate easy data migration and a mounting spacer so that laptops with traditional 9.5mm drive bays can accommodate the Samsung SSD 830 Series' new slim profile.

All Samsung SSD 830 Series models include a full version of Norton Ghost 15.0, rather than the limited data migration utilities included with most SSDs today. In addition to its robust data migration features, Norton Ghost 15.0 offers users advanced data backup and recovery functionality to ensure data integrity throughout the useful lifetime of the drive.

Finally, Samsung takes the stress out of the upgrade process by offering the best, most extensive User Manuals in the industry.

5 out of 5 stars   Super Fast and Reliable storage
By Todd (Massillon, Ohio) August 03, 2012
Review submitted for Samsung 830-Series MZ-7PC256D/AM 256GB 2.5" SATA III MLC Internal SSD Desktop Kit (SAMSSDDK256GB)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy To Install, Had everything I needed, Fast
Cons:
Other Comments: 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.
