Well I have been using the Samsung 830 and Crucial M4 for some time and no problem (not in a Mac though)
I find they behave better if you set them up properly before installing too. - not absolutely necessary but good practice in my mind
The easiest way to align an SSD is to create an aligned partition on the SSD with the help of Diskpart. Open an elevated command prompt and run the following sequence of commands – each line followed by Enter.
Select disk n (where n is the number that was given for your SSD in List disk)
Create partition primary align=1024
Format fs=ntfs quick
Active (assuming you want to install an OS)
Note: If you want to create a 100MB partition with alignment, the create command is:
Create partition primary size=100 align=1024
The size unit is always MB.
If you want to verify the alignment (e.g. for a SSD where you are not certain whether the proper alignment was done), you use the following commands.
Select disk n
I added an intel 330 120GB and i got random freeze (beach ball) / io error.
I'm unable to transfer any file greater than few hundred MB.
I have used a Ifixit MacMini Kit and I have put a Crucial M4 256Gb in a MacMini late 2012, when I transfer alot of GB to o from SSD my computer freeze and the beach ball appears constantly, after some second (20 or 30), the mini return to work properly. I have tested all firmware from Crucial. someone else has had the same problem?
Bought the server version with a pair of 256GB SSDs on RAID0. If you think it fly's with one you should try a pair!

Thanks for the information about swapping cables. I've just installed a Samsung SSD 840 Pro 500 GB with the old HDD cable (working with 6Gbit link) and the 1TB-HDD with the new cable as second drive (working with 3Gbit) into a Mac Mini late 2012. Seems to be fine!
The only thing is that I've had to remove the sticker from the HDD/SATA cable which now proves that I've been working inside the Mac while doing more than changing RAM. Don't know if Apple likes it…
I have added a Samsung 512 GB 850 Pro and 500 GB EVO drive with the fixit.com Kit and 16GB (2x8GB) corsair sticks of Ram to my October 2012 2.3GHz Mac Mini. I would say that all you need is the MB removal tool and a T6 and T8 and (T8 Security)Though I think it is important that your tools be long bladed as a couple of times you are removing screws at an angle.
It is fast I use the EVO as the time machine drive. I am very happy with the kit though the walk throughs failed at key steps and they really should have a put it back together walk through rather than saying "do this in reverse". I used the fixit magnetic mat and it served the purpose beautifully, holding the screws in place until I was ready to replace them. The marker is a nice fine tip which made making notes in the boxes nice. I used two different guides for the teardown and rebuild.
