Corsair neutron gtx 240 gb VS Sandisk extreme 2 240gb - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Yes i forget Sandisk is 240Gb.They are all great drives.
Sandisk extreme II 240GB is 159$ while Samsung PRO 256GB is 202$.
Only if Sandisk Extreme II have 960GB ,that would be my next drive.In fact two for storage would resolve all my storage problems.

I have both the SanDisk Extreme II and Samsung 840 Pro, used as OS drives. Their true boot times (OS only, no POST) are identical for me at least. When UEFI booting Win 8, three seconds is all they need. I don't have the Corsair so can't comment on it.

It is true the consistency of the 840 Pro can be improved to be somewhat better than the SanDisk EX II, with OP of the 840 Pro. But in the review (Anandtech) that showed the comparison, they used 25% OP on the Pro, taking it down to 192GB. IMO, it is just speculation that the Pro would perform as well with 10% OP.

If you check the results of the new Anandtech "Destroyer" benchmark, the SanDisk EX II is faster than the 840 Pro by a factor of two! Yes that benchmark is... extreme (sorry) but shows the overall capability of the SanDisk EX II. Nothing so far surpasses it in that benchmark.

Given the price of the SanDisk EX II, you cannot do better and won't go wrong with it.

Do you have one or two Extreme II ,parsec?

Igor, I have two EX II's, a 240GB and 480GB.

They have been very cheap in the USA, the 240GB for $160, and the 480GB is easily found at $300. I just checked a major online retailer in the USA, and they have the 480GB EX II for $260 today.

I don't know why they are so cheap (for SSDs of course), Samsung is a very strong competitor, great reputation and products, and they keep the prices down, at least on the EVO, so SanDisk may be fighting them for business. Most people buy the EVO instead of the EX II for almost the same price and capacity. I could have bought another EVO for the same price and similar capacity as the Extreme II, but I prefer the EX II.

I have the 840 Pro, 840 EVO, and SanDisk EX II, and IMO they are all among the top SATA III SSDs we can get. They all boot an OS at the same speed in my experience, but each has their own plus and minus in some aspects of performance compared to each other.

Those differences are in the extreme circumstances that most of us rarely if ever have in our PC usage. The PC hardware reviewers have had to go to great lengths to find differences between these SSDs, and many of those differences won't be needed or noticed by the majority of us.

OTOH, I do notice the differences between SSDs occasionally, others I have used boot an OS slower than these three. The differences are five seconds at most, mostly less. Imagine you're dragging and dropping a ~20MB - 100MB file or folder from one SSD to another (if you have such a system), and think of the Windows dialog box that appears that shows the rate/speed of the file copy. I don't see that display anymore (unless I'm using a USB flash drive), the copy is done before it can appear.

Yes Igor, a 1TB EX II would be a nice SSD! thumb.gif

I did some benchmark yesterday,i was curios ,see % of free space.

I do actually have multi-SSD systems. Although in my case, I use them as scratch space for 25-50GB files. biggrin.gif

I never said SEII is a bad drive, is fantastic! amazing drive especially now with this price, its mindblowing.

I was just pointing that the 840 pro should do better or at least as good with OP, you can check Anandtech op tests and performance consistency, the SEII is not gaining nearly enough performance with op compared to the 840 pro, that's why i think the 840 pro should be even faster with op.

840 pro 256GB vs SandiskEII 480GB both @25% OP.

What I would love to see is ,MDX 400mhz controller from EVO and NAND from PRO,that would probably be no.1 drive.
When it comes to this two ,difference is so small its useless to talk about it:

For there to be a noticeable difference, we'd likely need MEX controller from EVO, MLC Toggle-Mode NAND from PRO and a PCIe interface.

Yes MEX ,not MDX like I wrote.
