Windows 7: SSD to SSD image restore - Via Windows 7 Image file

SSD to SSD image restore - Via Windows 7 Image file

Found a good deal on a Samsung 830 - 128GB SSD.
Will replace a Kingston HyperX 120GB (move it to my wife's puter..?)
I installed Windows 7/64bit (upgraded to Pro later) on the Kingston HyperX when I built my system (Jan. 2013), alignments are good. I use Windows 7 Imaging for my imaging needs (was a long time Acronis).
The SSD has System Reserve partition. Since windows 7 wants it there, I have no problem with it.
Currently system boots/loads/Desktop in less than 30 seconds (with SSD connected only). Since I have added 3x HDD, boot time has slowed down to +- 37 seconds due to BIOS waiting for HDD to spin up.
Currently I have NO complaints / issues with the data or alignments integrity of Kingston HyperX SSD.
I understand loading a fresh OS on my new Samsung 830 - 128Gb is the best way to go, but the the time it takes ... and for possible a few seconds gain here and there are a meager exchange for a lot of work.
Can I just initialize the Sammy in Windows 7 and restore a fresh image (of my Kingston ) and run with it.??
PS ... I have restored about 6 plus times on this computer. It was a image of my Kingston, created, stored on a internal HDD and restored back onto my Kingston .. never a problem.
