I noticed you put the Samsung 830 under SSDs with a Marvell controller, but in fact it uses a proprietary controller made by Samsung. It is however similar to the Marvell controller in that it does not compress data like the Sandforce ones.

Disappointed to see no mention of Corsair's Force GT series. Still keeping my fingers crossed though since this thread is still in "alpha".

Anyways, I haven't fitted mine yet. Perhaps tomorrow. I'll be glad to provide the benchmarks results provided that you're able to tell me what software to use. thumb.gif

Buying from a single brand is dangerous. It gives them full market control, and lead us down the wrong path. I'd suggest amending your guide to sound more professional; and not make people think non-M$ SSD's are crap.


Also...don't format SSD's?

Pretty weird thing to say. I mean what the hell else do you?

What? This guide isn't done...what do you mean a single brand? I have a few already.

And what do you mean by non-M$ SSDs? Microsoft doesn't make SSDs lol

And for formatting you should not do a full format on an SSD, secure erase and quick formats are fine.
