My first SSD - What should i buy? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I would definitely go with the samsung. As others have said if it is going to fail it will fail within the first 6 months.

Here is a helpful link since this is your first ssd.

And a very nice review of the 840 evo.

Theres negligible speed difference between the two so I would recommend going with the better price or warranty depending on which you're more concerned about.

There's more to it then speeds.

I believe samsung has better firmware then most SSD makers.

Better firmware = less problems down the road, and a lower probability of your drive bricking.

Hi, my thanks to all of you for helping me decide. Finally I bought the Samsung SSD 840 EVO biggrin.gif

I have it for almost a week and it seems to be working fine.

Bye.
