Use Macrium Reflect. Free version will let you you clone and restore. Just remember to shrink your partition before you clone if it's smaller than the SSD. Make sure to expand it to fill the SSD before you clone the image. And switch to ACHI in the BIOS settings.

Personally I think fresh install is the best way to go and just copy your files over.

If you want easy-to-use software, you might want go with a Samsung SSD and use Samsung Magician.

Alright you filter anything by one star and of course you're going to see a bunch of bad reviews. NOT an unbiased way to check reliability whatsoever.

Man, I feel like a schmuck for paying $40 for that little 120GB HP now. Much rather have this.

Silicon Power should be an older brand than "team group", right?

Any ideas on reliability of these?

Nope, TeamGroup is the older company - been around since the 90's at least - they did DRAMs etc... before flash products. Silicon Power probably has been around for 10 yrs or so mainly in Flash Drives and SSD's

I noticed that too. 71% 5 star reviews. This drive should be ok for regular consumer use. Here is a review on the sp s55. The sticker looks different, but the model is the same. I snagged my 240gb during the last woot off for ~$40.

Doesn't Acronis regularly go FAR? Or does that no longer happen?

Here's my benchmark comparison between SP S55 slim vs Crucial MX300 vs Samsung EVO

Can't comment on reliability of S55 since it's like a week old.
