In it to win it with this one. Here are my real time experience on SATA 2:
Crucial 256 GB > Samsung 830 GB > Samsung 840 GB
Empirical rating based on...stars and unicorns? Glitter stickers?
I'm all about real-life reviews and impressions of products but you're not exactly giving folks a lot to go on. Perhaps a sentence or two regarding read/write speeds, TRIM or stability/reliability might be a wee bit more useful than "this drive is awesome let's rawk HOOAH!"
good deal.. I really wished i jumped on that ~500GB samsung deal from buydig. The regrets I have.
I have the m4 in teh 128GB version back in the day when ~150 was a good deal. It had blue screen once every week and an update came out. Since then I have only seen 1 Blue screen restart in the past 4 months? It's pretty reliable but I want a bigger drive now.
One would need to buy a USB cable to hook up to this drive for transferring old data, etc onto it, right?
If I needed data from and old drive I would of put it in my slave/secondary data drive and thn copy it back to my new drive.
USB cable sounds like you are transferring it to a portable HD which you can also use that as well.
Can one partition this SSD for dual-boot service(I was thinking half and half) without shortening the life span of the drive? (XP and Windows 7)
What kind of solutions are people using to protect against SSD failure? I'm scared of losing everything…the OS, downloaded games, etc… Are people RAID1-ing their SSD with a HDD? Does this impact gaming or other performance, especially if the drive one is RAID1ing to is of a larger size?
