No advantage to 840 over 830 really except in benchmarks perhaps, also the 830 has been around and is a proven reliable drive. | Report abuse Reply to RealBeast mad-max79 November 28, 2012 9:25:31 AM I would go with 830, it is fast and reliable! | Report abuse Reply to mad-max79 manofchalk November 28, 2012 9:28:39 AM Go with the 830, the Crucial M4 is a bit long in the tooth and cant compete with newer drives. | Report abuse Reply to manofchalk karlg23 November 28, 2012 4:54:23 PM Best answer selected by karlg23. | Report abuse Reply to karlg23 Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>SSD?> Related ressources: ForumMissing LOTS of memory in my SSD !!
