Rated 5 out of 5 by Teepeg Fast and quiet
I am delighted with this SSD that is fast and quiet. Would recommend as a replacement for a hard drive.

Fast drive with good software for upgrading from an older drive. The instructions tell you to connect the new drive using a SATA-to-USB adaptor (not supplied!), but for a desktop you can ignore that and just wire the drive inside the case. The data migration software worked like a charm, copying data from nearly full 128Gb SSD to this new 256Gb Samsung. Booted from the new drive without any problems - just needed to change the boot drive in the BIOS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TedB Wow that's fast!
A very fast SSD at a great price. This replaced a smaller ocz SSD which was 4 years old and the speed is noticeably better.

Very good fast SSD with an enviable reputation. Migrating a working Windows installation from the old SSD to this one was seamless with the included Samsung data migration software. You will need a USB to SATA adapter lead to achieve this which is NOT included with the drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PcGamingRig Great, Fast SSD!
Amazing. I can't believe I was enduring those boot up times with my old HDD. This SSD boots my PC in about 5 seconds. With this SSD, I also installed Windows 10 in about 10-15 minutes. The cooldown period that I got with my old HDD after booting up, before I could actually effectively use my programs, is also gone. The PC is ready to go as soon as the desktop is visible. Load times of games have also vastly improved and so has the installation of software.
It is a little on the high side price wise and there are other, cheaper models available. In terms of performance though, it is worth the price. If you do have a HDD, I definately recommend and SSD.
Scan were the same as they always are, great service and a super quick delivery.

As expected. Delivery was fine as always from Scan. Nothing to comment except value but that's me not you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AntC34 SIMPLY THE BEST (BETTER THAN ALL THE REST BY A LONG WAY)
I brought this to replace a standard hard drive in my mothers laptop which had failed permanently and I am so please with the results and so is she.
Her laptop now boots up in in half the time than it previously did (From pressing the power button to full desktop loaded in under 20 seconds). It is super reliable and well worth every penny spent on.
These might cost a little bit more than other brands and model but the extra money is well worth spending to get a SSD this great in fact I am now considering replacing the hard drive in my own laptop with a bigger model of this type (the 1 or 2GB model) in the new year because I am jealous of the speed and performance she now has.
