Even cheaper is either clone the entire drive with Macrium Reflect Free or image just the partitions you want and "restore" them to the SSD (here is a good tutorial on how to use Macrium Reflect for imaging; cloning is reasonably intuitive).

I tried using the Paragon approach and it just made a mess of things (same with Samsung's migration software; multiple partitions throw both of them for a loop). Cloning with Reflect worked perfectly. Running the WEI (Windows Experience Index) ensures TRIM is enabled. Using AS SSD is an easy check to see if the alignment is correct. And make sure Defrag is turned off for the SSD. Most likely, all will be alright after the clone but it never hurts to check.
