Hyperx3k vs Samsung 840

Hi guys!

As the title sugests i need to choose one of these two for my PC. I'll be getting the 120gb version of either of these they are priced exactly the same in my country. What i dont get is that the samsung has 530mb/s read and 130mb/s write , and the hyperx3k has 555read and 510 write, does that mean that the hyperx is faster?

  1. I own the Hyperx3k , and it's a great drive.Still too early to tell about the 840 series but the 830 series is fantastic.
  2. Both the Samsung 840 and the 840 Pro are brand new drives that were just released a few days ago. Neither series has an established track record yet. As is my custom I always recommend waiting 6 months before purchasing a new drive to see if any problems develop.

    A technical review of the 840 Pro ssd was published by AnandTech. During the review the ssd died. A second replacement 840 Pro also died. The cause of death is not yet known. Here is a link to the review:


    Other technical reviews were very favorable.

    In the meantime I recommend the Samsung 830 ssd. It has a stellar track record that is hard to beat. The popular Cucial m4 is another ssd worth considering.

    I maintain the ssd database listed in the sticky at the very top of this ssd forum section. Here is the link:
