Differences between Samsung 512GB 840 Pro Series and Samsung 500GB SSD 840 EVO - SSD


Apart from the extra 12GB can someone tell me why there is such a price difference between the 840 pro and 840 Evo? I looking to purchase 1 for a new gaming desktop build. The read\write speeds look similar so I assume there isn't a performance difference??


Thanks in advance

  1. The 840 EVO 500 is cheaper at amazon.co.uk

  2. The EVO is the newer line from Samsung. Slightly different technology.
  3. The Pro model comes with a 5 year as opposed to a 3 year warranty. It also has a longer lifespan (due to a difference in manufacturing process - TLC for Evo and MLC for Pro) - although both will have a lifespawn of 10+ years.
  4. Is the Pro better technology?
  5. Is MLC better technology than TLC? Is there much difference?
  6. The main difference is the lifespan. I think MLC has estimated lifespan of greater than 50 years. While TLC is cheaper and has a shorter lifespan - around 15 years.
