          I'd give 5 stars but I haven't owned it long enough to attest to the reliability. I've owned a 128GB Samsung 830 SSD for a year and have no complaints. This drive is just a tad faster and was for less $ to buy than the 830.

                            I used this as my 2nd conversion for a pc from a mechanical hard disc. It blows away the old drive and is top quality. I highly recommend the Samsung drive.

                              Comments about Samsung 120GB 840 Series 2.5" Solid State Drive (SSD):

                              I use the SSD to replace the HD from my 5 years old Tosheba laptop running Windows Vista. It used to take 4 minutes to bootup and about 2 minutes to shutdown.
                              Now I can bootup in 40 sec. and shutdown in 5 sec.
                              The Samsung software could not clone the HD. Samsung support agent ask me to use Macium Reflect Free Edition to clone. It worked perfectly. Both hidden & primary partitions were transferred. The SSD bootup flawlessly.
