Black Friday SSD deals

Hey guys, I've never had an SSD before, looking to pick one up this weekend for my laptop and use its HDD as an external with an enclosure.

That being said, I know absolutely nothing about SSDs.

Newegg has the Samsung 830 on sale, but it's out of stock (and anywhere that has it within my budget also has it out of stock.

Looking at an upper limit of $190 (and that's breaking the bank as is), and looking for 240-256gb of storage.

Was looking at Intel 335 Series SSDSC2CT240A4K5 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (will assume it's better than the 330 series, and it's only $15 more)

was also looking at

OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I hear OCZ gets bad ratings in general, but this model has high ratings on both newegg and amazon.


Which of these 2 would be a better choice, or if there's anything within the $190 price range that beats them both, what should I be going with? Would really like that samsung, but cheapest I can find it for is $220, which is out of the question (190 is pushing it as is)

Thanks in advance

Alright, I'll give it a couple days and see if anyone restocks the Samsung and in the meantime work on getting a deal on a decent enclosure for my laptop's current drive.

Good plan. The Vertex 4 may turn out to be a great drive, but it is still an unknown like the Samsung 840, which will probably also be great but the 830 is a time tested model.

I have a number of every brand including OCZ drives, but I am most impressed with the Samsung 830 256Gb. I've used it in a dozen builds and have had no issues with mostly very novice users.

It seems like a hot selling item though; do you think it'll be restocked prior to all these sales ending?

I would think that the retail pipeline should be full as Samsung tries to clear out for the newer 840 and 840 Pro models.

Additionally, would there be a particular version of this I need for a notebook? I see multiple kinds floating around

Edit:
Provided I can't get a samsung, how is the intel 335 (when vs the 330?). I'm looking and all I can find is the size of the NAND is smaller, but the 330 is $15 cheaper.

Am I missing something?

If your notebook HDD is 9.5mm, which it likely is unless very very old or a netbook (7mm height drives), then any of them will fit.

I doubt there is any difference in the Intel 330 v 335 and both have 3 year warranty, Tom's reviewed it: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ssd-335-240-gb-benc...

Might want to consider the Crucial M4 for laptop.
Have 2 each Crucial M4's (i5-2410m laptop) and 2 each Samsung 830's (i5-2500k desktop). Cannot tell the diff in day-to-day performance. Plus the Crucial's have lower power consumption for read/writes. This use to be anandtech's recommendation also.
The new 840's combine both performance and low power so should be ideal for both laptop and desktop.

Not seeing any crucials for sale/it's a bit steeper than what I can find for the intel/samsung (well if Samsung wasn't sold out).

Here's what I'm working with if it helps

Last question, the samsung 830 is back in stock, is it worth $40 more though (is there that much of a diff?) or is the intel good enough for the price?
