Why NOT buy Samsung 840 EVO? - Page 14

post #131 of 234
What's a good price for this SSD? I thought I saw a promo on newegg for $155 plus 10% off and it was to expire May 11. Now, nowhere to be seen. Oh yeah, I hate newegg, too.

The cheapest I've seen it is $164 at another vendor. I was hoping to get a Samsung SSD for under $150 but at 250 or 256GB. wink.gif

I thought of getting a SSD for my current system and then switch into a new build later. Maybe the 2nd SSD I was planning on buying can be one of the M.2 socket ones.

P.S. I'm not in the USA so I can't take advantage of good deals on ebay or amazon ($130?).

I had NOD32. I notice even the slightest slow-down. I hate it. I really, really, really hate it. I even disable Windows Defender. Besides, every Anti-Virus I've ever used tends to bother me in other ways too - including NOD32.

I hear ya, NOD32 has become the heaviest Antivirus out of the whole bunch out there. even heavier than Kaspersky. I notice it big time when installing apps. I have tried every AV out there, each one has its quircks.

Kaspersky has problems allowing Nero Platinum Suite 2014 to complete a burn

Bitdefender is a big old buggy crappy AV that IMO, is a virus on its own

Webroot SecureAnywhere, will bombard your PC by false positives. even legitamate sites like Media fire are sometimes flagged as malicious. this problem is all over their forums

Norton AV, has a problem since 1 year that isn't resolved yet, after a while, you will get 2 icons in the taskbar for NAV! ridiculous!

avast AV Pro, was light, has become bloated, full of ads, and heavy, even the Pro version

Avira, has the ask toolbar, I will not touch any AV that has toolbars bundled!

F-Secure, heavy as NOD32

I don't know what to try anymore

thinking of trying Emsisoft AntiMalware, what do you think of it guys?

See, and that's why I don't have any anti-virus programs at all. I just got tired of putting up with the various quirks for no good reason. I have been without anti-virus for several years and I haven't had one single problem! Not one! The only problems I have these days are ones I create.

 

So yeah, I have nothing that can be considered to be anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware, etc. etc. etc. You name it, and I don't have it - guaranteed. I keep that crap OFF of my computer. I like my computer to be fast and problem- free. I also like it to allow me to just do what I do without nagging me or asking me questions or anything. Whenever I do anything, I know what I'm doing. I don't need my computer looking out for me. lol

let's say, just so that I won't have this thought in my head "what if it worked well and I felt safer"

I am like you, have no viruses ever, visit safe sites, don't use any cracks, all legitimate software, but still, just to have that extra sense of security

so far running so good with 0 slow downs....let's see how it goes...will report back soon

Realize though that Anti-Malware isn't a replacement for Anti-Virus.
