Samsung 830 or Crucial m4

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.
I am going to order an SSD for my new laptop (Asus K53SD) in next 12 hours.

Samsung 830 128GB ( http://onlyssd.com/ssd-manufacturer/buy-samsung-ssd/samsung-128gb-ssd-830-series )
Crucial m4 128GB ( http://onlyssd.com/ssd-manufacturer/buy-crucial-ssd/crucial-128gb-m4-ssd )

Please suggest a drive between these two.I think Samsung is faster and more reliable,but there is quite a price difference.
I want to save those bucks and go for the Crucial,but i dont want to regret that i should have gone for Samsung later.

Yes, you're right about the Samsung being both fast and reliable. I can vouch for it, I've got three thumb.gif If you do not want to have to spend the extra cash for the samsung however, the m4 is still a very good drive.

I have both, there is no feel of dIfference in my daily use of either. I typically suggest just grabbing whichever is on sale.
