Solved Reliability of Samsung Data Migration - 840 EVO 120GB?

Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, Intel Core i3 @ 3.10GHz | 8GB DDR3 1333MHz
Just a quick question- how reliable is Samsung's Data Migration utility for the Samsung 840 EVO 120GB SSD? I just bought the drive and I don't really feel like going through the painful process of doing a fresh install of Windows 7 onto the drive once I get it. My current hard drive (Toshiba PH3200U 2TB) is divided into two partitions- a 200GB partition containing Windows and a small selection of programs and files, and the remainder of the drive allocated into another partition containing most of my files, games, and programs.

Would the utility work well at transferring most of the contents of that 200GB partition without sacrificing any of the SSD's performance? (Only about 80GB of that partition is used, and most of that data can be moved over to the HDD.) I will likely uninstall and reinstall most of the programs onto the hard drive, but I just want to refrain from having to reinstall the whole operating system along with all of my programs.

Thank you. I went ahead and used the utility, and everything seemed to go fine in the cloning process. I'll be keeping a backup clone on a partition on my old hard drive just in case anything happens, though.
