Regardless of what they tell you, this will NOT speed up your chickens.

There's an inherent bus issue with most chickens.

I just put a Samsung 512gb 840 Pro in my Sony Vaio laptop.  The included software cloned my drive and set the parameters for a SSD.  Everything transferred over without any problem (OS, applications, files).  Now my laptop screams and cold boots in less than 30 seconds.  Before it was taking ~ 5 minutes.  I then put the HDD I took out of the laptop and put it in a ThermalTake USB 3.0 external drive enclosure.  Happy, happy, joy, joy.   :D :D :D

I just received my Samsung 512 GB SSD 240 PRO  Its faster than the Crucial.  They were $399.  I have it teamed with my 256GB Samsung 830 as a boot disk and the 512 for data.  If I needed 1TB, I'd put two of the 840 pros in a raid setup for $800.

I just returned my Samsung SSD. I built up a system with that as my system drive and a pair of 2 terabyte drives RAID'd for data. After the 2nd time the drive deformatted itself spontaneously, I lost faith. But it was fast when I had it.

I have nine of them without ever having had a problem.  I suppose that a tiny few will fail, but Samsung are the most reliable, dependinng on which model.  The 830's and 840 pros are good.  The 840's have a different technology, so they are a unknown until there are more users.

In the last year, I have had over two dozen SSDs fail between me and many of my client's boxes. However, the only SSDs that work without a problem (and never had one) are:

Intel SSDs
Samsung 840s
Plextor M3Pro & M5Pro

Everything else, especially the junk-ass Corsair, Crucial, and OCZ drives are just that - junk. Primarily the Corsair drives - I had 3 die in the first 3 weeks of installing it, and of course, they sent me a refurb even though I bought the drive new. So, they send me another, it dies.

Actually, it's not the manufacturer's fault - it's just that SandForce controllers are weak and horrible, reliability-wise. They are fast, but they also die fast.

My data cluster on my big box is RAID 6ADG 15K SCSI 300GB disks, and the controllers are mirrored also. That's reliability - never powered off and so far, one cluster is approaching 5 years constant uptime.

My Visual Studio/Lightroom portable? Fujitsu T731, Core i7, 16GB DDR3, Plextor 512GB SSD - fast, smooth, reliable and holds about 13 hours battery life.

I am aware that SSD will significantly increase the start up times and read/write times but I have a specific question regarding the the performance of Adobe CS6, Lightroom 4.4, Final Cut Pro etc, with an SSD:
I currently have a Mac Book Pro Mid 2010 (OSX 10.8.3) with 16 GB DDR 3 RAM, 750GB HDD, 2.9 GHz intel Core i7 processor, and all of the above programs work perfectly, I have no issue at all, but what I want to know is will upgrading to an SSD will have a significant performance improvement after those programs have been launched?

I'll sum it up for everyone, just do it.  Pick your vendor and do it.  Don't ask, just do it.
