HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! The master is correct!!! You guys ready for my epic fail??

A long long time ago... deep within the massive bowels of the 800d.... hidden in the bottom two drive cages.... an old ide 250gb hard drive was installed.... and long since forgotten

i hear if you want fast speeds it helps to actually install to the ssd.... doh.gifdrool.gifdoh.gif

needless to say its been a long week at work and its time to go to bed.

/resolved.. os installed to actual ssd and things are very zippy!! thumb.gif

Lol. Figured this was the case. This is one nice thing about AS SSD. Easy to catch common mishaps. tongue.gif

Hi Guys, I have pretty much the same initial question as the thread starter but I was also considering the OCZ Vector 150 240GB, I'm adding this drive purely to play games from, I have an M4 as my boot drive and am still very happy with it. I know that the Samsung 840 Pro is good and very highly rated but it's due to be replaced this summer so I cannot get myself to buy one as it will soon be obsolete, same with the 840 Evo as it's from the same range. Is the OCZ Vector 150 a good drive? I also read that the Sandisk Extreme II is VERY fast, just interested as to why most of you chose the 840 Evo over the Sandisk?

Cheers. :0)

The Samsung drives consistently score very well in performance, reliability, power consumption, and "tool box." Samsung has the advantage using its own memory, controller, and firmware.
OTOH there are a number of very good drives out there.
The Sandisk Extreme II benchmarks very well, as do the OCZ.
Generally the Sandisk has been more expensive than the Samsung, and less in the forefront of sellers.
OCZ has a great deal of experience, their recent drives are very good, and the Toshiba purchase of the SSD portion of the bankrupt company ensures memory availability.
In real world use, outside of benchmarks, most SSDs perform admirably.
Personally, I am lazy enough to research a half dozen or so SSDs and buy from that list whichever is on sale at the moment, consistent with "features" having the most appeal.

Thanks very much for the reply Brasslad, so you reckon if I go and buy the OCZ Vector 150 I won't be disappointed? As I mentioned, it's just to run games from. I'm guessing that between the Vector and the 840 Pro, I won't notice any difference in the load times etc? (in your opinion)
