Gordon, Blairgowrie Retired

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good and very quick
Bad points:
None so far - have knocked off a point for reliability because it is too soon to judge. To date, however, all seems to be working fine.

Ryan, London IT Professional

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
- Samsung make all the parts in this SSD: The controller, The DDR memory, The NAND, The PCB, so everything is in house and should be the most reliable brand of SSD.

- The Samsung SSD software (Version 4.0) is the best software out of any SSD manufacturer to come with an SSD.

- Nice 3 year warranty.
Bad points:
- This is not anything negative to this SSD in specific but SSD's still aren't at a level of pricing per GB that general consumers are willing to replace their hard drives with SSD's.

BrightLemon, London IT Professional

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I bought the Samsung 830 for my work machine and my productivity has gone up by a large margin. We are also running these drives in our servers and our entire development environment is snappy responsive.

After trying out many other SSD drives I can thoroughly recommend these drives. Price vs Performance is unmatched.
