    Samsung 840 pro 128G .. it is only 20$ more than the normal one.
  2. Get the Samsung 840 Pro trust me it's worth the extra $30 or so dollars for it. It would run circles around the Kingston HyperX 3k..

    Edit: Meant MLC vs TLC sorry!
  3. Samsung 840 120GB - 79€
    Samsung 840 Pro 128GB - 121€

    is it really worth it?
    didnt want to spend more than 100€ :(

  10. Thanks for your feedback.
    Ordered the 840 Pro :)
  11. The Kingston HyperX will blow the samsung 840 right out of the water. I have a HyperX 240GB on a second comp and it runs circles around the 512GB Agility 4 SSD that I have in my main computer. I couldn't be happier with the HyperX.
