Cons: none
Installed into Asus G73JH. Windows rating for HDD went from 4.8 to 7.8 - big jump. Installation of this SSD probably added a couple of more years onto the life of the laptop. Instructions for using Norton Ghost were very easy and well thought out. Overall performance of the SSD has been as expected - superior.

# of SAMSUNG products I own:3-5
Pros: Realistic color, Lightweight, ssd has 3yr warranty
Cons: ssd gets warm when in use so improve cooling neede, unclear software data migration instructions
- Performed a clean upgrade so did not use included software
- SSD gets WARM when in use so IMPROVE cooling needed
- Expensive Value for 3YR Warranty
- SSD has 3YR Warranty, a PLUS and may outlive some Notebooks
- Upgraded Notebook using clean method from 128 SSD to 512 SSD in 48HRS was not bad

Pros: reputable vendor own all components of ssd
Cons: no support of os x lion on mac
I am very happy with the product: The Setup (using DiskUtility), cloning (using Carbon Copy Cloner) and installation (physically) of the Samsung 830 SSD on my MacBook Pro (early 2011) is a breeze :-)
I will be happier if Samsung can provide some basic support for Mac Users: such as a simple way for OS X Lion users to update firmware (when needed), and some recommendations to optimize wear, including recommendation to TRIM or not to TRIM.
