SSDs are not any less stable then regular HDDs. Samsung 830 is a good choice.

Samsung is one of the top when it comes to reliability.

Any drive with a Marvell controller is said to be more stable. I own a Plextor PX-128M3 and no crashes or data corruption so far (knock on wood). The PX-128M5S is on sale right now.

Neither should give issue on newest firmware.
post #7 of 12
On Samsung SSDs you shall not mind any controller issues due to the fact, that samsung bulds its OWN controllers! Actual SSDs are mostly reliable and stable. But its like always, you get ehat you pay for. Cheap SSDs offer crappy performance. Take a Samsung 830, it's really good.

Good choice. I have a 256GB model, and I got it because I feel that it is overall one of the absolute best, not only insanely fast but also incredibly reliable, and the fact that everything is made by Samsung is the icing on the cake.
