My ssd died, want to replace it, samsung 830 or the 840 ?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So yeah, unfortunately my corsair f120 (was a refurbished one) died. ( I dont know if its corsair's fault or sandforce, but when I plug it in, my bios takes minimum 20 sec more before posting and it never boot, it say bootmgr is missing)
Tryed in on my friend pc and also on different sata cable.

So from now on, after depressing so much about my WD caviar black being my Os drive, I want to get a SSD ASAP ( when you stepped into ssd, you will never go back biggrin.gif)
So I was interested about the samsung 830 128gb and the samsung 840 120gb

Which one do I get, the 830 is about 1 year old and the 840 is almost new.
Which would you guys get.
They are actually the same price atm: Samsung 830 128gb or Samsung 840 120gb

Ps, the samsung 840 pro 128gb is 140$, but I dont think it worth for me, look at my build, I dont even have the sata 6bg/s so I dont believe ill get the 40$ worth of speed

edit: Oh, my friend just linked me this one SSD 330 Series SATA III 180GB for 99$, same price as the samsung 830 128gb, interesting

840's are nice... can't knock the 830's either.
If it were me I'd say an 840.. Unless you can get good deal on a 830.

If that's the case I don't see why you wouldn't get the 840 then...
Sure your current build won't make much difference, but when you get a new motherboard BAM. That and why not get the newer/faster model? biggrin.gif

Well both 830 and 840 have sata 6gb/s, my point was about the 840 pro. (I am not ready to pay for the 840 pro with the current build I have that it lol)
Yes eventually I will upgrade cpu/mobo ram gpu...

My wondering was because some review say that the 830 was better then the 840, which would not make sense.

840 is a cheap version of 840 Pro and yes 830 is a little better than 840 non pro version. I would go with 830.

Only opt for the 840 if you get the pro. Otherwise, the 830 is the better option.

Oh, my friend just linked me this one SSD 330 Series SATA III 180GB
180gb vs 128gb is a plus, I was Ok with my 120gb, but had some program on hdd so would be good too
