Samsung 840 vs 840 Pro - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Kind of stupid for them to send out a "thanks for being our customer" coupon, then when you try to use it they say- lol jk it was only for the first 3 people.

Agreed. That was my problem, but oh well.

Back on topic, how does the OCZ Vector compare to the Samsung 840 pro?

840 Pro is faster, and better from reliability standpoint. Samsung makes quality drives.

I know Samsung is considered the best, but I just don't want to spend money on stuff I wont actually notice. Benchmarks are great, but if I could get a larger Crucial M4 that has half the write speed and not notice a difference between that and an 840 pro and have them both last just as long, I'd prefer to save money.

Most likely the difference would be unnoticeable for you. There was no noticeable difference b/w my 64GB M4, 128GB M3, 128GB M5 Pro, or 128GB Samsung 830 or the multiple sandforce drives I've used except depending on size, the sequential write speeds for some large file transfers.

Only difference I have ever seen from multiple ssd drives is in benching.

In an os environment I would never be able to tell them apart.

Newegg has a smoking deal right now on 120gb and 250gb Samsung SSDs, its right at the same price as the 20% coupon that didnt work for anyone. No 500gb included in this promo though.
