I recently had some problems with my previous purchase of an OCZ Vertex 3 and got an RMA, and I'm now looking for a new SSD for my new set-up.
Based on my own recent experience with OCZ and reading other general complaints my confidence in OCZ has dropped and I have decided to now look at getting either the Crucial M4 or Samsung 830 (256GB).
However I have read on one forum that the Samsung 830 is incompatible setting up as a GPT partition with an UEFI install. Can anyone confirm if there are any known issues with Samsung? I would have thought any SSD would have been compatible with GPT partitioning.
Well on my new mobo (Asus P9X79 Pro) initially it installed via UEFI automatically thus creating a GPT partition (was on the aforementioned Vertex 3 I had problems with). As this was my first new build in several years and somewhat ignorant on what UEFI was I have had to do some homework.
But I guess you’re advising if the drive is less than 2TB (which it is or will be) then I should only install in a non-UEFI installation. However I thought there were other technical merits by UEFI other than just removing the 2TB hard-drive partition limit.
