New Samsung SSD

Today NewEgg has a New Years Day sale and I noticed they have a Samsung 840 Pro Series 128 Gb SATA III SSD for $130 US. Is this a good buy, as far as SSDs are concerned? I would use it to run my Windows 7 installation. Thanks for any input.

Getting any kind of SSD is a good buy! You will notice the performance right away.

I use my SSD for my Windows 7 Ultimate install and drivers, then install all games and software on a 1TB Western Digital drive.

This keeps your SSD clean and swift and gives you lots of room

The 840 Pro is at the top of the heap right now as far as performance......and that's a decent price.

Will do! Hopefully this, along with the new CPU cooler and cleaning materials will arrive the same day. Then I can disconnect my PC just one time and do everthing at one time.

It better be a good deal; I just ordered one early this morning!

All seriousness aside (?), the 840 Pro is at the top of the heap performance-wise and is a good price. It lists at $150 but has been selling for $140 at Newegg and Amazon. The NewEgg sale knocks off another ten shekels.

I got $20 each off four WD20EARX the day after Christmas.
