Samsung 840 EVO 250GB vs Corsair Force GS 240GB

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am about to purchase my first SSD for my build, and I can get the Corsair for around $35 more - but is this worth the extra price? I think it has better read/write speeds, but that is not everything, is it?

I know $35 is not much, but if the difference is not that noticeable then I might just get the cheaper one.

I'm wondering if Corsair is more reliable.

Corsair: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233312

Thanks in advance.

In my opinion, the Corsair is the better option with faster read and write speeds and generally they're reliable.

The Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 250GB is an extremely reliable SSD. I would choose it over the Corsair any day. It has 10 GB more storage and it's cheaper also. The Corsair is a nice SSD but it's not any better than the Samsung.

True, but reliablity is different for each user if youre constantly writing to your ssd then it may not last as long or fuction at its full speed, you only need 120GB SDD to store your OS and application you frequently use then anything else less used programs music docs shoul go on a mechanical hardrivw
