Crucial M4 128GB vs Samsung C830 128 GB - wnich is better ?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone.


My Vertex 2 is broken and I want to buy a new drive. SandForce I will not buy because they have problems.
Which of these drives have better performance ? I say this for practical applications, benchmarks do not take into account insofar as they confirm something.


Which drive do you recommend? I'm confused...

Like Murlocke said. The M4 is extremely popular and almost everyone and their grandma will recommend it. I have an M4 and I love it smile.gif

They are both superb drives though so I would just go with whichever ones the cheapest thumb.gif

I'm going to echo the others.

Both are great drives. Whichever is cheapest, jump on it.

The M4 the last time I checked was significantly cheaper. They perform on par with each other (or close enough where you wouldn't notice outside of benchmarks).

Which ever is cheapest.
post #8 of 12
Yeah this type of question was posted yesterday. The m4 is $159.99 on the Egg. You won't find a better price/performance product out there for SSD right now. I always suggest that or if you want to spend the extra money the Intel 520.

Ok guys. Thanks for answers. I just have one last question. On another forum I found out that Crucial has a better boot times in system/games/programs. This is due to better work with files 4K, that's true ?
