The Samsung 830 SSD is not just a simple hard drive there are so many positives to say the word fantastic doesn't do it justice. Let's talk about the most appealing aspects about this drive. The first thing that comes to mind after using it is BLAZINGLY F

Excellent SSD
5 Star Review   By Geekerie on Adorama - Nov 28, 2012   

I've been monitoring the SSD market for some time, and when prices finally started dropping on this model, I was very happy. This drive consistently gets high ratings in expert reviews. My experience so far has shown that it deserves those accolades.

I was getting the blue screen of death. I decided to replace the hard drive. Best thing I could have done. Now my old laptop runs faster then my new one. Thanks Samsung. Great product. Easy to migrate files and install.

Everything Exceptional !!
5 Star Review   By San83 on Adorama - Sep 20, 2012   

I just love this SSD. Drive is 7.5 mm and even though I bought with laptop kit, I didn't require the adapter to put in my 5 yr old Laptop. I used Macrium Reflect home Free addition to clone my HDD instead of Nortong Ghost which was supplied with package.

5 Star Review   By Jonmilw on Adorama - Sep 14, 2012   

This drive has been great during the four months I've owned it. Haven't had a firmware update since I've gotten it. Seems things change fast enough where updates for performance etc. could be more of a priority. That's the same with all samsung products,

This drive smokes in my Samusng Series 3 laptop (NP300U1A-A01US). The fact that the drive is thin made the installation into this machine a snap. I used EasyGig IV to clone the drive; it took about an hour. With this drive, Windows Experience Index for th

I'd been contemplating a SSD for a few months since talking to others that have upgraded to them and hearing stories about performance increases that were hard to believe. I have an HP Elitebook 8530 with 4GB Ram and 3+GHz Dual Core processor and a 7200 R
