Samsung 840 Pro 256GB vs EVO 250GB- which to choose?? - Page 5

post #41 of 180
The EVO is TLC not MLC so a Pro or other MLC with RAPID will kick its butt and that is just what I expect them to announce in the next month or so. I will also betcha that the present PRO's will be able to be upgraded (updated) to handle RAPID.
I bettcha, any takers?

Not much of a prediction bud considering Samsung has stated Rapid will be coming to the Pro's. rolleyes.gif

Samsung 830 @250GB = low performance
Samsung 840 @250GB = low performance
Samsung 840 PRO @256GB = high performance
Samsung 840 EVO @250GB = low performance
Samsung 840 EVO RAPID (don't know the storage capacity may be 250 or 256)= high performance

The 120GB version limps in at acceptable for some, but by our estimation falls far short of delivering performance that would be suitable for a normal consumer."

That's only in reference to the 840, why would you not consider a 128GB 840 Pro?

a 128 Gb 840 pro is just way too small. On my present rig I have a 128 Gb SSD and it is 80% full and that is without 90% of my apps/programs on it. I really want to run virtually all my programs on the SSD this time so the pair of 256 Gb SSD's will do that with room to spare for some data basses I may want on that drive. Also, the larger SSD's perform better than the 128's.

Oh, I see. I'm trying to decide between 2 128GB pros and 1 256GB pro. This would be for my OS system drive only (just windows and some light apps) - all programs will be on a separate larger SSD array. I'm leaning towards the 2 128GB drives in RAID 0 - the only thing in favor of the single 256 drive would be endurance, but I think this is probably a non issue with the MLC Pros anyway.

There seems to be some plusses and minus issues but from what I am reading 2 X 256K SSDs do a better job in RAID than 2 128's.

I have now ordered a pair of 256Gb Pro's

The raid 128 will be as fast write as single 256

I will buy the 840 EVO 250GB
Because I saw the miracle of their software called RAPID Magician...

NO RAPID (software)

The Rapid update will be available for the Pro and I also do not like TLC instead of MLC. I am willing to pay a little more for 33% less wear and tear.
