    I've just bit the bullet and turned it on, I selected my SSD drive and clicked optimise, the defrag screen had detected my drive as an SSD and in the current status column it says that "optimisation is not available" and when I select the drive the optimization and defrag buttons are greyed out.

    That will do me, I will only select my 2 hdd's to defrag once a month and I think I'm going to leave it switched on. The drive has a 5 year warranty if the worst comes to the worst.

    Don't use Samsung Magician software!! It is not suitable for W8 yet. The fact that it won't install on W8 (x64) should already turn on some alarmbells.
    The tweaks and optimizations the Magician proposes are for W7 and not suitable or required for W8, since W8 does a lot of things automatically or different when an SSD is detected.
    Things like Superfetch, Prefetch, Defrag are automatically adjusted by W8 for optimal use of the SSD.

    To have W8 recognize your SSD correctly (if not already so) you have to redetermine the Windows Experience Index (or run the Windows System Assessment Tool, winsat.exe).
    Then the Defrag tool will automagically turn into the Optimization tool. That will run the TRIM command on your SSD according to set schedule.

    The magician software installed on my win 8 pro 64 bit ok. Do you advise that I select the SSD drive in the optimisation schedule, at the minute I've only select d and e drive which are standard HDD's

    Yes, you can also select the SSD. W8 will treat it different from the HDD's. It will "optimize" the SSD by trimming and the HDD's by defragmentation. Both will be done according to the selected schedule.
