One Anti-virus program and a good malicious software program will do the trick for 99% of people.
Guess you missed post #686?

AV discussions are best left to the System Security or General Discussion forums.
This thread is for discussing SSDs.

Agreed Dave but all the same I think KB is right on the money and I also think that Michael has got hold of the wrong end of the stick in his first argument.

What Britton was saying is just what KB said only in a slightly different way / differentiating / translating between anti virus and anti malware.

Personally it's my humble opinion that Michael misinterpreted what was actually being said! If he wants to find out what does happen running two AV's together try running Kaspersky with another AV and see what happens!!

And I honestly forgot that this thread was about SSD performance.........it happens. Long day of classes and no sleep = me not paying attention.

To get the thread back on the rails, here is a CDM test of my Samsung 830 SSD that I've been using and abusing since the end of May....

Nice scores, those 830's are nice.

I'm planning on getting a 128GB before they aren't available anymore.
The new 840 is a little slower than the 830, and the 840 Pro is a little faster.
Considering the prices now and the performance is a wash, the 830 is a good deal.

Hiyya KB that Crystal tester do you find it better than AS SSD ? If you think so I might give it a burl to see if it comes up with much of a difference. As for the other mate we are all human and as such all go off road sometimes

Ho and Dave we have only just got the 840 out here is there really that much difference because it has pulled the rug out from under the prices of the 830 cos I was looking at a 256GB Plextor but eh same ime in an 830 I can get for $200 now?

Kelly, those are really good 4K numbers!

John, if you consider a Samsung, note there is an 840 and a 840 Pro version, the Pro is a better, faster one and a bit more $$$.

Glad you pointed that out. I read the post earlier and was going to respond and got side-tracked and forgot.

The new Samsung line of SSD's come in two flavors.......the 840 and 840 Pro. They use different types of memory inside which affects performance and life cycle. The 840 Pro looks like it is going to be one of the fastest non-SLC SSD's out there, and is priced a little higher. The regular 840 will perform about the same as the 830 but with a little faster 4K Read/Write speeds.

If you don't need the fastest thing on the block, grab an 830 before it's too late. If you want one of the fastest SSD's on the market, get the 840 Pro. I haven't made up my mind where the 840 fits in, especially considering the 830 is still available. I guess if they were priced similarly, you could get an 840, but they haven't been out long enough for me to make that recommendation.

Hiyya Gary and Kelly yep just noticed the pro listing and it i $50 more than the base 840 which it self is $50 more than the 830 $275 $225 and $205 respectively (256GB)

I am actually wondering if I need the 840 as my power up to login then login goes 25 secs then 4secs on the Ivy Bridge. If it knocked off even 10 secs the extra cost for speed at this time wouldn't justify it for me but if it works more efficiently then perhaps....
