I sometimes think that some will not be happy until the speed reaches the speed of light or perhaps before it is even set in motion
Yeah I am fortunate to be able to have my toys

However that's not what my post was about. Nor do I question others who spend their money to improve their PC's. That's what PC enthusiasts do

Thanks.

I'm not sure how much of a performance gain I'll see over the 840, but I do like the larger size, and thus the main reason for getting this, plus the 850 does look to have killer performance.

BTW, for some odd reason, I'm still not able to run the AS SSD benchmark without error...

Attachment 336127

so I can't say if this score is right...
Attachment 336128

I've had this issue ever since moving to Windows 8.1. I simply can't run it without erroring out

And since I already have a Samsung 840 installed, yes, I have the Magician software installed, and Rapid mode enabled.

Well that's it for now, have to get ready for class.

Later.
Benchmarks will be quite a bit faster, in actual user experience it will feel somewhat faster. Kind of like CPU 2.5 Ghz to 3.0 Ghz yea It is faster but you really don't see that extra speed. The real big difference was going from a hard drive to SSD. I think it will be a long time again before we see or feel a jump in speed and effectiveness as SSD are.

That's all very true, but I think another big advantage to the 850 Pro is a 10 year warranty.

Well contrary to popular belief I didn't get it for benchmarking but the added space. Some of you already know I hardly OC, let alone benchmark. I just figured if I was going to get a 512gig, why not get the 850 with it's 10 year warranty, plus the performance to boot.

Honestly though, I doubt many (me included) will this drive 5-years from now, let alone 10.

Anyway I'm thinking about just doing a OS reinstall instead of the migrate operation I was originally going to do using Paragon's Hard Disk Manager; that would have taken 5-10 minutes, but a reinstall might be in order due to nagging issues with my current install.

Problem is I don't have time for a reinstall as I've got two papers and a test due by Tuesday for finals this week. So for now it looks like PC upgrades are on hold till finals are done

Until then

Until i realized that i was upset with my SSD performance , once i knew that in actual use there is very little improvement and it would be barely noticeable i thought why spend more money since there is a bottle neck in most current systems anyway.

Agreed but I would have bought my 850 with a 5 years warranty. They have great confidence that these 850 will last way beyond is usefulness.

The 512GB 850 can probably handle 100's of PetaBytes worth of data written to it without breaking a sweat......another selling point.

I don't see the 10 year warranty as a selling point , if your a PC enthusiast there's no way your waiting ten years to upgrade with how fast tech advances.

I just hope the drive provides better Photoshop performance, not that my backup Vertex 4 is bad, but...

I often work with large tiff files (600-800meg) and running them from my OCZ vertex 4 SSD drive gives good performance; now that I have a lager drive I can move the ones currently in work to the 850 for (hopefully) even better performance.

Anyway back to my paper...

I agree with most of that and I consider myself an enthusiast too. But, I still have an X25 M and a vertex 2 which are still in use. A 10 year warranty to me is them showing confidence in their products and me not having to worry about a 3-5 year warranty. Performance on SATA III has just about topped out and there will be few, if any performance increases that are more than marginal, which is why many of the new boards are coming out with sata express slots which run from PCIe lanes and not through the SATA ports. That is where we will see significant performance gains.
