    Samsung or Samsung.

    840: £134.98 (Dabs), £129.98 (Amazon) - £20 cashback
    840 Pro: £179.98 (Dabs), £177.46 (Amazon) - £15 cashback

    The 840 Pro is faster than the 840 and comes with a 5 year warranty (instead of 3). It also uses MLC NAND instead of TLC, so will be slightly more reliable (although for most people this is a non-issue).

    If you buy an SSD and it doesn't come with a copy of TrueImage or Ghost, the following disk cloning programs are excellent alternatives and completely free...


    Using the bootable discs that each program offers, you could stick the hard drive and SSD in a spare desktop PC and clone the disks much faster than you could if you used the USB 2.0 to SATA adapter that Samsung supplies with some of their SSDs.

    If you are using Windows 7 or 8, run WinSAT after you have cloned the disk since this will ensure that TRIM support gets enabled in the OS.
