I've done a test on my Seagate 1TB 7200RPM HDD and my Seq write speed is faster than the SSD?
If you ever read whats on the box then yes.

Also I bought the Samsung 840 120GB SSD for £80 which is $120, should I went for a different SSD?
M4 has faster wites.

When i was in process of buying my first SSD i read about 15 reviews,saw about 30 AS-SSD result,and scroll all newegg costumer reviews,about 6 page.Same with my Samsung 840 Pro.
If you plan to bench SSD and see great results,you cant buy cheap SSD and be satisfied.

I've seen other SSD around my budget and my choice of Samsung 840 120GB SSD was correct,

Also I've done a test on my Seagate 1TB 7200RPM HDD and my Seq write speed is faster than the SSD? What does that mean?

Nothing to you,if you dont plan to copy and move data all day long from one disk to another.
The numbers that are important for Windows experience are numbers under seq. numbers.
4k numbers,4k -64thrd numbers and access numbers,just compare them with hdd.

It means your HDD writes faster than your SSD. lol What else is it suppose to mean?

Run AS SSD on your SSD then run it on your HDD after...see what the results bring you.

Appologys if this has been asked before.. and im sure it has 100 times

But between the 830/840/840pro Whats the best value to speed ssd?

Im looking at the 840 pro but im having trouble seeing if its worth the premium price? As apposed to the 840 or say the sandisk extreme? Ive heard the samsung controller is great and im relaly looking for reliability

If you can still find an 830 I'd get that. Reliability wise, the 830 is proven wheras the 840s still are quite new to market, but I doubt there's anything to worry about with either of them.

I wouldn't touch the pro unless money simply wasn't a consideration at all. If budget is not a consideration, you might as well have the fastest, but if money is a factor at all then basically any modern SSD from a good manufacturer is so fast you'll never tell any difference between any of them - the standard 840 is really quick, and much better value.

Whatever is the cheapest is the best value.

Thanks for the info. Im definitely looking at a 250gb this week. Im stuck on a 250gb 5400rpm drive since i first got my machine 5 years ago.

Well theres cheap and then theres the reliability factor. which is more what im after. I know RMAs exist but id rather have as little trouble as possible.. as i suppose everyone would.
