Samsung 256GB SSD 830 Desktop Series SAT

Perfect Sdd to computer.
Runs very fast and looks great.
My two Hdd Seagate Barracuda died 1 month after end of warranty (works only 1 year and 1 month)
Now I replace my two old Barracuda for one disc SDD Samsung ,and second for HDD Western Digital Caviar Black 1T.
Both work very well.
Long warranty (3 years) and Norton Ghost (SDD Samsung) and 5 years on HDD Western Digital. Means that I can sleep good :)

Solid Performer

I have been using the Samsung 256GB SSD 830 for almost two months in my main rig and unlike my old Corsair drive, it has not caused a single blue-screen or lock-up. If you're looking for reliability in addition to speed then look no further.

Blisteringly Fast

this is just an amazing piece of kit and i would highly recommend it , my pc now boots up in seconds , and whil playing games like battlefield 3 the levels load up in a few seconds instead of nearly a minute , i would say if you only had a few pound to spare and wanted to make a big differance to your pc and gaming experience this is the best thing you could get !!!

Great SSD.

Install is easy, came with the latest firmware, the read performance is exceptional and that is what really matters - performance is very similar to the Crucial M4.

The software SSD Magician enables you to tune the operating system for best performance, garbage control for optimum performance, you can also update the firmware with it and also secure erase, change partition size and check performance via it's own benchmark built in.

Very happy I bought this Samsung 830 SSD.
