Remember you also have the OEM drive options for samsung. The 650 is a decent drive with the full samsung support. http://www.1a.lt/kompiuteriu_komponentai_tinklo_produktai/atmintis_hdd_ir_ssd/kietieji_diskai_ssd/samsung_ssd_650_120gb_sataiii_mz650120z

Even then, a term as "miles faster" for the SSD's is.. a "bit" of bs. There really isn't that much of a difference between 250mb/s and 500mb/s ssd's. The main thing you get from an SSD for daily use is super low latency.

Main thing to look for is proper warranty, and the kingston drive really isn't it.

I would rather go with the sandisks that are relatively slower (atleast for writes, reads might be faster), just because they actually have good stability, warranty and reliability.

OEM (original equipment manufacturer) - is a term used for software/hardware that is not meant to be targeted at or even sold to consumers directly, rather they are meant to be used by system makers to bundle them with pre-built systems or something like that.

Not sure if i would suggest getting the 128GB evo at that price, especially since the 256GB one is only ~30 more.

If you have to go with a 128GB at a limited budget and are using it for what essentially is a boot drive with very small use for anything else - save the cash and go with the 650 or a sandisk.

the EVO series is worth it mostly at 256+ sizes, atleast in europe.

I wouldn't recommend 650 over 850, whatever the price difference smile.gif

Honestly, its a matter of need and want.

You always want the fastest and biggest (or whatever the criteria is), but the question is - do you actually need it.

If your budget is that low, then i would imagine that it is for a reason tongue.gif.

There aren't any real workloads that you will put on it, where you will notice a large difference between the two drives apart from benchmarks.

But to each his own, we are here to give suggestions and our thoughts after all tongue.gif.

If I remember correctly, Samsung has firmware issues with those drives, also 850 Evo has better performance and 2 years more warranty.

What about them kingston HyperX ssd? Like KINGSTON SSD HYPERX FURY 120GB or KINGSTON SSD HYPERX SAVAGE 120GB
post #20 of 21
Kingston has kinda let the consumers down lately with their drives and support from experience. Stick with the sandisks/samsungs

And yeah, the 650 doesn't have any firmware issues. Performance difference? Yes, but not nearly that big, that you should want to spend 20-30 more. When its an almost 50% increase in price, the performance boost isn't worth it.
