Looking to buy ssd (need suggestions)

Hi guys,

i am planning on buying samsung 840 pro 128gb. But im wondering if its a good choice, is it a big difference in terms of speed compared to other brands like crucial or corsair gt with bigger capacity like 250gb or something like that?

if so what can you suggest?

thanks

    250 gig is the sweet spot.

  2. i suggest you read this article http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ssd-recommendation-benchmark,3269.html hope this helps......
  3. 240GB drives (Crucial & Kingston) hit the $100-$110 mark this week.

    While there are differences between SSDs, they are marginal compared to the differences between HDD--->SSD.
  4. I checked the best ssd for the month of may 2014, the speed for samsung pro 840 with 128gb is greater than the others even the with higher capacity SSD. Not really sure if its that big of a difference though

    Speed differences between any of the better SSD's is unnoticeable. Reliability, warranty, and price are your key decision points.

    Compared to an HDD, you're seeing a 300% increase vs a 301.5% increase.
    And generally speaking, larger drives are marginally 'faster'. Again, not that you'd really notice.
  6. Thanks for all your inputs guys
