Jeez so many good SSD's out there! It seems like the Samsung 830 and the Plextor M5P go neck and neck, especially with the new firmware update?:
http://www.anandtech.com/show/6505/plextor-releases-firmware-102-for-the-m5-pro-promises-100k-iops

So for the same price, would you guys still get the Samsung 830 over the M5P?

I guess any of these will blow my Force 3 out of the water thumb.gif
I would definitely grab a M5 Pro. biggrin.gif

However, these prices are too rich for my blood lol.

Ah crap. I would, but Amazon is charging me $8.25 for shipping and $17.96 for tax... that's way too much for either. I guess I'll continue to wait, unless this is an amazing deal I shouldn't pass up (which I think it isn't),

+1. Among the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals we had, I'd expect to see one again on the SanDisk Extreme, Intel 330 or Intel 335.

You've provided no valid proof of that statement and the thread you started spouting that nonsense was locked.

Show the OP some respect and don't pollute his thread with false information.

I went ahead and bought a Samsung 830 for $185. I'm sure I'll be very happy with it and it was a decent deal. Now to sell my Force Series 3 to get some money back thumb.gif

Thanks so much to all who helped smile.gif
