True..

What I'm saying is: That Sandisk was attractively priced. Just so you know they are not that good.

So you don't end up buying the stuff and wonder why it has also half of the performance that you can get from Better SSDs.

I wonder if you'd notice the performance loss in day to day usage, assuming you weren't doing a lot of writing to the drive? I mean, the one you have, is it noticeably slower than others you have, or, does it just bench low?

Not sure it would even be very noticeable for an OS drive. Sure if you read or write ton of data often then the speeds would be noticed but I doubt much difference would be noticed as an OS drive. Sure a bench will tell you it's slower but say "feeling" the difference in an OS drive with 25,000 IOPS vs 50,000 IOPS. After a certain point I would think more IOPS becomes negligible from a "feeling" the difference perspective. I don't know. Would have to try it myself. But I have my doubts.

I'd be worried about reliability and longevity. Game loads in 8 seconds instead of 6? Meh. Not a big deal to me, especially if that extra 2 seconds cost like $50+ more.

Yea, I'm going to agree with M3TAI on that one. I'm not sure that outside of installing things, you'd notice enough of a difference to say the drive wasn't worth it. Still, if you're going to do it, do it right, and get a SSD that's more reliable.

I really wish I had gotten a pro, instead of a a normal evo myself. Even though I doubt I'd notice the slight speed difference, the pro can take 3x the amount of writes.

I might get another SSD, when I can get a 256+ for around the price I paid for this evo. $100 bucks for a 256gb SSD = pawnage.

Well, I guess it all depends on how you see things.

This is OCN. This is where we share thoughts on certain things.

I am just sharing mine. Based on actual experience. Not even talking about benchmarks to back my claims. And never did told you to not purchase the thing. If you found it attractive enough, go for it. Like I said, performance-wise, they're not that good.

Also note that I am not from the US and doesn't know how much an 840 Pro or a 335 or higher Intel SSD cost for the 120GB model. But I got my Crucial locally for about a 100 bucks. That is a already a good price for me. I suppose.

Not arguing over your point. Just telling you the cons. You be the final deciding factor on such purchases anyway. smile.gif

Talking about the speed, the Sandisks were by far inferior in every aspect to Intel 335s and 330s on our workstations. Even with my Crucial, not so much of an SSD per spec. Booting, Logging on and out were slower too. Not to mention occasional glitches even just on browsing.

Game load differences were not as close as 2 seconds either.

If you are concerned about IOPS, you might as well read more about the topic. While SSDs would slaughter every HDDs, I am talking about day to day use of a computer with different SSDs. System drives may not be a saving drive in common knowledge but deep within, everything a computer does will be revolving around the System drive and those READ/WRITE speeds I mentioned will of course, be directly proportional to the IOPS you are saying.

Can't even see evidence of a 375 MB/s transfer rate on your result.

But even if 375's your rate, compare that to 520 MB/s.. smile.gif

Came to think of it, I think for you to get the most out of your purchase, go for a RAID 0 on these Sandisks. thumb.gif
post #9350 of 12377
We'll a samsung pro is something like $130 ($120 on newegg right now) give or take. Not sure about the others. Still $65 sounds like a fair price for a introductory SSD.

I'm not buying one, ^^, but, figured I'd post it, in case anyone was looking for a SSD on the cheap. I'll stick to Samsung for now, since they have fair prices, and good reviews/longevity. Though, next time I'll get the pro. biggrin.gif
