I have 120G SATA and a 120G SSD. The SATA is only half full, so I should be fine?

Lastly, this will increase my speed, not to mention the life expectancy of the drive?

That kit should work great for you but I just noticed something about it. The cable provided is a SATA cable not USB so you will need to have an available SATA port to plug the cable in to be able to do the cloning. Shouldn't be a problem provided your computer is not a laptop.

You should see a nice performance boost, OS & programs will load faster from the disk. Since an ssd has no moving parts it is not susceptible to mechanical wear so it follows that they should be more reliable. SSDs can and do fail, however, so you'll still want to maintain backups of your important data.

Thanks strollin'. After work I'm going to give it a go. I am a rookie as far as the 'inside' of the machines, so I wanted to start learning with something I think I can handle.

That kit will simplify your life and once that ssd is booting you're going to wonder why I didn't do this a long time ago !
