Solved Large Capacity SSD (Samsung 840?) with Cherryville 240 Tags: SSD Storage Samsung Last response: April 23, 2013 10:09 AM in Storage Share jamiedolan April 23, 2013 9:53:41 AM HI; I have a new system coming today with a Cherryville 240GB drive in it. I do video and photo editing. I'm interested in adding additional SSD storage to the system and just found the Samsung 840 500GB going for about $340. (vs about another $200 for a cherryville that size) From everything I've read, I believe the cherryville was a good choice for my main drive. However for a secondary drive for the price, I'm wondering if the Samsung 840 would be acceptable. My 2 questions are: Are there any compatibility issues with different brand SSD's in the same system, I would assume no, but wanted to double check. I read some people were concerned about failures in some of the Samsung SSD's, is this still a concern with the samsung drives? Thanks, Jamie More about : large capacity ssd samsung 840 cherryville 240 Best solution Dereck47 a c 544 G Storage a b Ô Samsung April 23, 2013 10:09:58 AM No, you won't have any compatibility issues. SSDs are like HDDs in that you can use any combination of models in one system. If you're setting up a RAID array then ideally you want the drives to be the same, but other than that you don't have to worry about anything. The Samsung 840 is a great drive so you shouldn't have any problems. Share Can't find your answer ? Ask !
