Which SSD for my usage? OCZ Vector or Samsung 840 Pro?

Hey all,

Im currently looking to buy my first SSD and hoping to get some words on what could fit my needs the best.

I'ev been looking at:

OCZ Vector Series Solid State Disk 256 GB
Samsung 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256 256 GB

I use my desktop mainly for:
- The adobe package (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Flash)

I do also occasionally play a some games online.

Not sure if its noteworthy, but I have an
- I7 2.67ghz
- ATI Radeon 5800 series
- OCZ DDR3 GOLD XTC 6GB PC3-12800 (3X2GB)
ps. getting new RAM.

If you have suggestions on some other SSD, then im naturally also all ears :)

  1. I normally recommend Samsung - stellar track record over the years. Crucial, Intel, and Plextor are also worth considering.

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


    Scroll down to the brands and models you are interested in and follow the links to the technical reviews.

    BTW - Since you mentioned an Adobe package, what are you using as a scratch disk? Have you considered setting up a ramdisk? Works wonders for Adobe products. Here is a link to a recent article:
