About this product
- Product DescriptionWith a 256 GB capacity, this internal solid-state drive from Samsung is designed with a sturdy brushed metal and hard shell case, protecting the unit from shock, dust, and corrosion. Furthermore, this Samsung 256 GB hard drive has no moving parts, which minimizes the chance of data loss as a result of damage in addition to using 66 percent less power than a typical hard drive. With this Samsung 470 series drive, users can enjoy a 250 MBps sequential read speed and 220 MBps sequential write speed, which translates to fast boot-up times (less than 15 seconds) and programs that open almost immediately. In addition, the Samsung 256 GB hard drive offers a 3 Gbps data transfer rate. Sporting a 2.5-inch form factor, this internal solid-state drive is lightweight at only 2.4 oz. This, in turn, makes the laptop lighter when the Samsung 256 GB hard drive is installed. In addition, the Samsung 470 series drive measures 0.4 inches tall, 3.9 inches deep, and 2.8 inches wide, making it small but powerful.

SSD Samsung drive
I bought this SSD drive which was announced as used but in good working condition. When I received it I tested it with a software to test disks and found out it had 4 bad sectors. I believe it is still possible to use it but it is not as reliable as it was supposed to. I am going to use it because it would be expensive to send it back and I would have to pay for shipping, but I am not sure I can trust or rely on the data installed in it.
Verified purchase: Yes | Condition: Pre-owned

If you have the means, I highly recommend it. It is so, so chic...
I bought this little puppy for my laptop after installing a 60 GB OCZ SSD drive in my desktop. The price is right and the drive works excellently. Even on power saver setting this SSD has breathed new life into old machine with lots of applications after the Athlon processors lose their usefulness (which will be soon w/o an SSD). You will use your laptop a lot more w/one of these. The battery will last twice as long and the speed makes it on par and w/the convenience of a tablet (I have a convertible laptop/tablet pc, but mostly a laptop) w/all the power of a Windows machine and it even weighs noticeably less. Windows 7 & 8 are both friendly to these drives and with a fresh install virtually all the settings are set automatically for an SSD. You do want one of these in you machines whether portable or not and the more storage space the merrier. I use the smaller one in my desktop b/c I can supplement the storage w/HDD's. If your laptop can support a swappable drive caddy w/the DVD drive, then you don't need a lot of space. I don't know how this performs next to it's immediate competitors, but I'm sure its adequate esp. for the low price. There is also a lot of talk about the lifespan of these, which is into millions of hours, so don't waste your worry. Don't just take a complete stranger's advise though, go confirm everything I wrote w/ another complete stranger, or find confirmation here. If you've waited until now to purchase one, don't wait anymore, you won't regret you did! Read full review

Vibration proof, super fast.
I bought this for my work laptop that I use in a vehicle.I travel off road quite often and use the laptops GPS while driving. The original HDD kept parking causing programs to freeze including the GPS. I was also afraid that the vibrations and shaking would damage the HDD. With this SSD it is no longer an issue. As a bonus the boot time is extremely fast and opening programs is nearly instant.

good product if your willing to put down some money
this is a great product but it is rather expensive. boot times are very fast for my macbook pro (less then 15 seconds) overall if your looking for speed and have money to spare this is a good product
