Windows 7: Good SSD Brands to buy?

Some people have issues with Crucial M4 queue depth performance benchmarks (inc. me) but probably has little consequence for most users. Still, I'll go for the Samsung 830 next.

The way prices have dropped I'd go for 120/128 GB.

I went with that one a few months back. Samsung 830 OEM, from Newegg for $80. It has been very solid,fast and issue free.

Note that Samsung is releasing the 840 series later this month. While it will have a modest price increase over the 830 series, the improvements are well worth it (IMHO). While speed improvements probably won't be readily perceived by consumer users, the dramatic drop in power consumption will likely extend battery life a bit. I was going to get the 830 but I think I'll wait...

The Samsung 840 Pro will be a few bucks more than the 830, but performance across the board is reported to be significantly higher.......can't wait!

Hiyya KD any idea of that difference? as my 830's have been just the ducks guts

Hum found lots of good references via Google but on other sites for data and comparisons to the 830 and M4.

From what I hear, SSD manufacturers will say that their SSDs can withstand approximately 10,000 hours of operation. That comes out to about 415 days–or a little over 1 year–if you’re constantly writing and rewriting data to your SSD.

It comes down to how much you use your computer. Are you doing a lot of data-intensive work, like video editing? Do you regularly move around big chunks of files (movies, tv shows, music, etc.)? How often do you install and uninstall and reinstall big programs?

The more data you manipulate, the faster your SSD is going to die. You can probably expect to squeeze a few years out of it, but “decades” is much too long unless you only plan on using your computer once a week or something like that.
Because of this i hesitate buying ssd for my pc.

I would do more research on the topic because the information you have found is wrong.......very wrong.
