    I thought it may be the case. I'd buy a kingston if I wanted it for a laptop. At that price be crazy not to.

    Is there a way to speed it up?

    It may be just normal for this drive.

    Am tempted to get the 256gb version for my main rig - 100 quid is hard to avoid....

    It may be the controller your using on your motherboard or like Apex said, The driver choice.

    I found this..

    Is there a diver for Samsung? I can't find one Samsung website.. I don't think its exist.

    In Device Manager, it say its using Microsoft driver...

    SSD is connected to onboard SATA2... but yea my motherboard is quite old and outdated now.. that might be a reason.

    There will not be one for the drive itself. The driver we are talking about are AHCI drivers.

    What motherboard are you using and which Sata port number are you using, Knowing this may lead to a solution as some boards have been known to have ports which don't perform as well as others. For example some boards that had 2 Sata control chips and one was inferior.

    I have a M3A78-T motherboard, see http://uk.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2Plus/M3A78T/

    I think it connected to SATA2 Port 3

    Re: SATA 3 Controller for Samsung SSD 830?

    you could try installing the AMD AHCI driver and see if that makes any difference.

    Re: SATA 3 Controller for Samsung SSD 830?

    I am getting blue screen during windows start-up after installing AMD chipset drivers I didnt had problem with Microsoft default AHCI driver.

    I had to switch back to IDE from the BIOS and booted fine....

    Any idea?
