Intel 520 240gb $178 vs. Samsung 840 Pro 256gb $225 Tags: SSD Storage Intel Samsung Last response: June 17, 2013 7:32 PM in Storage Share jchan June 17, 2013 6:58:31 PM Hey guys, so I'm in a little bit of a fickle between these two SSD's. Both are well known, and both have 5-year warranties! The reason I can get the Intel SSD 520 240gb for $178 is through connections. However, I saw that the Samsung 840 Pro 256gb almost beats the 520 in every benchmark here: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/751?vs=742 But in reality, what kind of difference will I notice? Is it like a 20 second boot-up vs. a 17 second boot-up? In that case, I'd rather just save the $50 and go with Intel. But if the Samsung 840 Pro really is that much better, I'd like to hear some feedback! Thanks!
