Thanks, More about : ssd Best solution RealBeast a c 322 G Storage November 27, 2012 5:42:45 PM I'd get the 830 over the M4 just for the Samsung Magician software, although I find them to both be great drives. No advantage to 840 over 830 really except in benchmarks perhaps, also the 830 has been around and is a proven reliable drive.
