Customer Reviews of Samsung 830 Series 128GB 2.5" SATA III Solid State Drive (SSD)
SSD for an upgrade10/1/2013
I've purchased this SSD for an upgrade. The drive arrived properly wrapped (bubble-protected envelope, USPS First Class with tracking number) in retail packaging, that included a manual and a CD besides the drive itself. The drive is very easy to install, but I lowered the 'ease of use' category for a complicated description of the drive's characteristics that made a terrible shopping experience trying to compare this drive with the others.This model seem to be outphased by now, but is still OK.
Installed in Mac as boot drive (bought adapter bracket). Really sped up performance and enabled me to use original 500gb drive for AV storage.
Be aware that this version of the product does not come with Ghost so if you plan on transferring your HDD to SDD you'll have to find a way to transfer your data. But if your using as a new drive should be no problem.
I,m satisfy with this item, It runs well and the price is good.
great low price8/30/2013
I like it
I just installed this and so far so good. The boot is definitely faster, opening some apps is faster. Overall it will not change my life but a step in the right direction for sure. Good price.
good quality, fast shipping, brand new!8/24/2013
I am very satisfied with the speed of shipping, the quality of the good
SSD drives are great!8/22/2013
This is my 10th drive as I am converting all of my moving parts HDD to SSD as primary then using the old drive for storage. I install a cageless removable HDD piece in my 5.25" bay and plug and play HDD for storage options. SSD is fast and stable without worry of usual failures to HDD. This Samsung model is the newer controller with better read/write speeds. Super fast in a 7 machine.
Good performance for the price!8/22/2013
Samsung 830 120GB SSD is an excellent drive for the price one pays. It works and can be RAIDED
Great prices Will shop again !
I bought the 830 for 89.99 (although 1 year ago, I got the same one for only 85 :/ ) which was a great deal. I decided to buy this one again, even after the release of the 840, 840 EVO, and 840 PRO because the 840 and 840 EVO both use TLC NAND (flash memory) which offers lower performance and reliability than the MLC NAND that is used inside the 830 and 840 PRO series. Furthermore, this SSD has proven to be very reliable and FAST in both personal experience and online benchmarks. Well worth it!
Perform well just like two other Samsung 840 I purchased before. Very fast and reliable.
I bought this to put in my laptop which was taking over 5 minutes to fully boot into Windows 7 with the 7k rpm drive that I had before. After upgrading to this drive my boot time (from power button press, through signing in with user/pass, to being in Windows and ready to launch programs) went down to 1 minute 30 seconds. Fast! Highly recommended!
Works well. Reliable and performance is good
Samsung RULES! unbeatable performance, outstanding8/19/2013
I've come to exclusively rely upon Samsung's line of SSD's because they are simply unmatched. Samsung makes amazing SSD's that are reliable, ultra-fast, and generally pretty cheap. You can never go wrong with an 830. The 840 and 840 pro newer generations are also super speedy and will compliment any gaming setup. I can't wait to get me hands on a new 840 EVO, I understand they will blow away the competition and really take the SSD market by storm
Product key of software did not work.8/19/2013
Product included Norton Ghost for drive cloning. However, the product key included was not valid. I had to use other third party cloning software. But product was fine was I got it cloned.
This is my third Samsung SSD and I like the easy to use transfer software and the performance of the drive. One of the best out there and an excellent value.
Very low power consumption. Very fast boot time
Still a good drive8/14/2013
The performance is great for normal usage. If you have a lot of data files, music or videos, it's better to buy a 256gb version.
Professional series SSD recommended8/5/2013
Value and perfomance are top , cannot be better!
This drive really speed up my computer just as review explained.
First class SSD7/26/2013

Great Slim Drive7/24/2013
Great drive at 7 mm fits in my Twist
Samsung 830 SDD7/23/2013
Samsung 830 SSD is previous generation of SSD products, it is better than non-Pro version of 840 series SSD which has TLC memory chip. Also price of 830 is better than 840 which makes 830 a bargain!
Samsung 830 SSD7/22/2013
The SSD works great. The drive installed easily once you buy the proper bracket for it. I wished that they have included the bracket like they do with the 840 series. It came unformatted. So you will have to format it yourself. I had no problem doing that. It works like a charm. System booth up very fast now under Window 7. Doesn't get hot like the regular SATA drives. Small 2.5 " format, useable in laptop as well. I am very happy with it so far.
Good drive and good service7/22/2013
I ordered an SSD which arrived before the expected delivery date. The drive was in good condition and has worked flawlesslly. Very happy with the purchase.
Samsung 830 series 128GB SSD7/22/2013
The Samsung 830 series 128 GB performs as advertised, it is super fast and easy to install. The installation of Windows 7 went without a hitch. The Samsung software works very effectively to setup the drive for speed and longevity. I am very satisfied with the product. The only complaint is the Samsung registration page does not allow you to register the product. There is a discrepancy between what the site will recognize as a valid serial number and what the serial number of the product.
I upgraded an HP laptop that is a couple years old. The drive includes software to image the old drive onto the new one, but I opted to just use recovery disk and re-install the OS (Windows 7) from scratch. The install went smoothly - and fast. The SSD drive offers a nice performance boost for booting and loading programs.
Seems to be a good drive7/21/2013
Boot time is very fast with this ssd
Screaming fast SSD7/16/2013
Everything about this SSD screams performance. Standard SATA connectors and 2 1/2" drive configuration. Works great in an HTPC to produce an "instant on", low power experience.

Older Samsung Model but Still the Best SSD7/11/2013
These are still the most reliable SSDs on the market. They outperform all newer SSDs including their Samsung successor the Samsung 840 no pro series in every laptop or desktop we have installed them
Samsung SSD 830 series7/11/2013
I prefer Samsung 830/840 SSDs. They have excellent software support (migration and mantainance) for Windows XP. They are compatible with all my notebooks, I never have had issues with this brand. I,
Well packaged, solid performance2/12/2013
Excellent packaging and fit and finish. Solid read and write performance. Great value. Runs well in RAID10 on an LSI RAID controller (running 4 now in RAID10)
Item cancelled no notification or reason given. I guess you won't get any business from me ever again if this is the treatment you give paying customers.

Easy to install, works well.
dead on arrival10/18/2012
got one that was completely non-functional, not recognized by mac or pc, returned for refund
The Samsung 830 is one of the best SSDs on the market. I'm using one in my main computer system and purchased the 128GB version as an upgrade to a laptop. Great improvement over the mechanical hard drive.
even though it is expensive...9/17/2012
Even though solid state drives are so expensive they are historically priced lower then ever before. at less than a dollar per gigabyte it is a buy. there are a few beautiful things about solid state drives. First - they should outlast the rest of the hardware in your computer because there are no moving parts. 2nd - the sustained read and write speeds are dynomite. Samsung does a good job with tech support as well because you can talk to a human if you want to.
same as other ssd
Samsung 830 SSD's are BEST on the market!8/15/2012
