Samsung SSD 850 Pro 256 Gb Vs Sandisk Extreme Pro 256 Gb

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I'm planning to buy a SSD, the intel ones are too expensive, so i can choose between those 2.

As far as i know the Samsung is superior but some recent issues have started worrying me.

Samsung TRIM error could be wiping data

http://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/samsung-ssd-bug-wiping-data/

The 256Gb model is not listed though, i'm planning to use it on windows.

Any suggestions? complaints? Thanks in advance.

I was planning to wait for the 860 series but apparently those are not gonna happen this year (at least not next month apparently). 850 pro series are almost 1 year old.

Those are both great SSDs. Either one will work fine for you.

I highly recommend the SanDisk Extreme PRO over anything from Samsung.

I've had both, read my thread here:

Bit the bullet and bought 2 SanDisk Extreme PROs

In synthetic benchmarks, the 850 PRO gets about 10-15% higher scores but in real life usage, the SanDisk Extreme PRO was faster according to my usage, Stuff like creating an image of my C: partition for example take about 10 secs less with the SanDisk Extreme PRO vs the Samsung 850 PRO. Read that thread for a full comparison

Sorry for making this poll, its kind of stupid, it's obvious the Samsung is superior, the Sandisk may not be bad but its inferior, the Intel 730 240 is even more inferior regarding writting speeds (250 MB), so choice is made i guess, now let's see how good it is...

OMG??? The 850 pro has superior benchmarks to a drive that's 3 years older and still smokes it in real world performance consistently? Get a clue, Samsung uses cheap components, cheap business practices and doesn't care about customer service. They're all about volume. Whatever insignificant drawbacks synthetic tests can produce to put it above the older X pro mean nothing when it comes to real world usage and performance.

p.s. was what I read in a previous post true. the sandisk x pro 10 year warranty doesn't have a TBW limit?

No "860" for now, what comes next is 850 EVO V2, essentially similar but with 48-layer 3D TLC (as opposed to 32-layer like in current 850 EVO "V1").
