    I actually purchased the Samsung drive, because it was discounted, and there was also a promotional code for Cyber Monday, which was too good of a deal to miss. I now have the drive, so I need to wait until I have the free time to perform the operation. This will be for the computer that still has a hard drive, and I shall later purchase a second drive to replace the lower-capacity drive that is currently in my own computer.

    I am thinking about using a USB-to-SATA adapter for this procedure, which I imagine has its own software; what can anyone say about that?

    I ultimately used Macrium Reflect, and it worked flawlessly; the new drive is exactly like the old one, but noticeably faster; the motherboard has only a SATA 2 (3 gbps) interface, but it is still more than sufficiently fast for my mother, who uses the computer primarily to check her e-mail, browse the internet, and perform occasional word processing.

    Now that I have seen how effective this software is, I shall eventually use it to upgrade my own computer's 256 GB Samsung 840 pro to a 512 GB Samsung 850 pro, the same model to which I upgraded the other computer.
