Samsung 830 series VS Crucial M4 (Both 128 gig)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am getting ready to reorder my SSD from New Egg this morning and was thinking perhaps getting the Samsung 830 vs the Crucial M4?

How do these two stack up as far as performance/ reliability etc? I realize the samsung 830 is new to market but it is getting decent reviews and comes with a couple of accessories which IMO if they were not included would put the price at around the same place the crucial M4 is at?

So in essence I guess I am asking is the Norton Ghost, the mounting tray and Cannot confirm this (the Arkham city game, {not a big deal to me as much as ghost and mounting tray}) make the Samsung 830 a better buy than the Crucial M4?

They both seem to get around the same performance numbers I have seen from the couple sites shown and if someone is not looking for the ultimate benchmark IE just to load up windows and use for a couple games along with some minor OC, does it matter overall?

Please keep in mind I am concerned with reliability as well...

thanks

I personally would get the Crucial. I have had great experience with thier customer support and I know their dives are reliable, samsung are usually too, don't get me wrong on that they are just as good from what I have seen. Also from the looks of this:http://www.overclock.net/ssd/1157619...b-benches.html the M4 is faster. And more often than not the M4 is cheaper.

I wound up getting the M4, I figure another 5 dollars for a mounting tray and getting a better drive imaging software program that is better than Norton for Win 7 in addition to the M4 having better performance overall is better deal...

Now to figure out which drive imaging program to get...

I thought it had to be SSD to SSD not regular HDD to SSD for windows to work properly?

I've done it before and it had worked fine for me.
