Confused with Samsung SSD's - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Maybe this is interesting for you:

http://uk.hardware.info/reviews/4178/hardwareinfo-tests-lifespan-of-samsung-ssd-840-250gb-tlc-ssd-updated-with-final-conclusion


this and other tests have shown that samsung is pretty reliable for their SSD's (not always the case for their other hardware!), also crucial is pretty reliable imo

Thanks for all the information guys ... I really appreciate it ...


If you guys were given the choice of either :

1) 2x 250gb Evo
2) 1x 500gb Evo
3) 1x 128gb pro + 250gb Evo


Which would you rather take (they are all similar prices once worked out) ... Would 2x 250gb in raid be a risky idea ? (never used raid or ssd's hence the question)

Putting 2 SSD's in RAID0 will not increase real world performance by much if any, only with synthetic benchmarks will you ever see a difference. Also remember that RAID0 offers no redundancy, so if one drive fails, you loose all the data on both. That isn't the safest thing for an OS drive.

HERE is a good review with Samsung 840 Pro drives in RAID.

Personally, I would go with 2x250GB Evo's. One for OS, one for games. If anything happens to one of the drives you will at least still be able to use the other while waiting for a warranty replacement. Going back to HDD speeds after getting used to SSD speed is....painful tongue.gif

I'd go for either this set-up (either in RAID or JBOD) or the single 500GB EVO. With my storage usage, ideally, it would be ~100GB OS+base apps and ~300+GB others (games, virtual machines, scratch space, etc) so 2x250GB RAID-0 or single 500GB just works out better for me in terms of storage carving.

Since a 250GB drive appears to be enough for the OP for games, I see no problems for him if he decides to go for the 250GB OS and 250GB games set-up.

Dump enough RAM on the build (16+ GB) and it's actually not so bad. Had to make do with 5400RPM HDD's on my laptops until 1TB class SSD's became available. For Office, web surfing, etc, it's actually quite tolerable as long as there's plenty of RAM available for caching. tongue.gif

Think the 3 is a good option , nice boot ssd and seperate game/data ssd smile.gif

But if yuo gone run raid it is better to take two of the same , the 128GB pro and two Evo 120 in raid 0 could be an option .There is the 1000MB read with two in raid0 .

After installing my first SSD the other day if I had your options I would go with the 1 x 500GB EVO without questions.
