Most helpful reviews

Chris, Swadlincote Like low maintenance tech

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Revived a 4 year old Macbook Pro, and it is now flying since installing the SSD. Wish I had installed a new drive years ago. Everything you need is in the box. Within 5 minutes new drive was installed.
Bad points:
Was far too easy to install - I wanted more of a challenge so I felt like I had really achieved something technical. Seriously no bad points.

G, London

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This was used to replace my existing HDD and what a great move. Totally speeds up a PC from start up to running applications. If your looking to speed up your computer, forget these system utils, swap your HDD for an SSD using the Samsung Data Migration tool its so simple. You'll see results immediately.

Reza,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Technically I didn't buy this for speed as most people would. I replaced my external / portable drive with this. I did this because SSD's do not have moving parts. If you drop a normal hard disk it will most likely break. An SSD will not as there are no moving parts (unless you want to throw it across the room).

Read / Write speed are good. I can now also take my work with me without having to worry so much that I could accidentally bash the drive (or have it fall of the desk when connected to my laptop) and break it.
Bad points:
None, its targeted at the "professional" market and its more expensive than your standard SSD. That said it is supposed to be. The endurance/lifespan is considerably higher than an cheaper consumer drive (which have far less writes before they stop working).
