Windows 7: Samsung 850 Pro 256 GB or Corsair Neutron XT 240 GB

Samsung 850 Pro 256 GB or Corsair Neutron XT 240 GB

The Samsung is $149, the Corsair is $119, any opinons on which I should get for my Z170 build will be appreciated, I`m sure the 850 Pro is arguably the best SSD out there, but the Corsair has great numbers and is their top of the line model.

I`ll post the links to each drive.

Thanks for any input

Hiyya Brian mate personally I would go with the Samsung only because I have so many now and never a problem except with the Magician software.

Having said that I have swapped out a 850 EVO with a 850 Pro and frankly the AS SSD numbers came back worse on the Pro than the EVO.

Having said that I think as you say the Corsair has some good numbers and is another brand I use and trust but mainly RAM.
