Beware of user errors - this drive FLIES!!

I don't know what the last reviewer did wrong, but I just bought my 5th one of these as I have replaced all my 7200rpm drives with them. I can only think they had a driver issue, because there's just no comparison. Programs load in the blink of an eye, Windows 7 boots in under 15 seconds from cold start, and preparing DVD images literally takes seconds to copy several Gb of video (until you get to the actual burn process obviously).

Make no mistake, these drives are FAST!

Migration Tool failed twice to clone C: drive!

I purchased a Samsung Solid State Drive instead of a 3.5" 7200rpm hard drive because of the greatly improved speeds SSD's claim to provide. I chose the Desktop Upgrade Kit to make upgrading easy. BUT it was FAR from easy, as the Migration Tool took 40 minutes to FAIL to clone my C:drive TWICE! I rang Samsung for support and all they did was send me a link to download Norton Ghost and a license key. BUT Norton Ghost did not clone all my programs over. Maybe I chose the wrong option?

After 20 hours of hair pulling and eventually restoring my original HD from a system image, I tried the Migration tool again - and this time it worked :-)

BUT you will get hardly any improved Random Read/Write speeds and NO improvement at all in sequential read/write speeds at all - unless you are able to use it in ACHI mode!

To say I am disappointed with the speeds I am able to get with this not being able to use ACHI mode is an understatement. If I had known this I would NEVER have bought it:-(
