I use Acronis to clone my SSDs. Easy enough to get it free. WD and Seagate have free versions on their website; you just need to have a WD or Seagate drive installed on your PC. Intel also has it available as their migration tool, however, I've found the Intel version to be more limited compared to WD/Seagate ones. I did however, buy a full version from Newegg as it was on sale for just $10 with no rebates.

Only the kits come with the software (Norton Ghost) and cable. However, I do believe you can download Norton Ghost from Samsung's website regardless of which version you bought (basic or kit).Edited by rui-no-onna - 6/17/13 at 7:39am
