So, I found a good deal on a normal 840, not a pro 840, and I want to know if its enough to want to get it. I've heard the 830 is more reliable and fast, but I want to know if its enough difference to pass up on it. It's basically, save $30 and get the 840 or spend the extra $30 for the 830. Anyone know if the 840 is a good idea?
All of the Samsung solid state drives are excellent. The have a stellar record.
In all probability you would not notice a performance difference among modern 3rd generation SATA 3 6Gb/s solid state drives. Most of them form a fairly tight performance cluster. You would have to run a synthetic benchmark that grossly exaggerates those differences to see any differences.
