Need some input, I installed this drive in my desktop with AHCI mode enabled,
I ran the Atto benchmark results along with the Samsung Magician, and keep getting a constant write speed of 250 MB/s, is that what's expected? I am getting 500 MB/s on the read.
My windows 7 boot is about the same speed as was my 7200 rpm WD black hard drive.
Need some input ,because i have the 830 ssd in my laptop and windows 7 boot is instant.

Does OS write often to SSD? It is the only slow thing here.
If you use this for desktop, power doesnt matter.
I usually keep my computer for 2 yrs, so life usage does not matter

TLC is inferior to MLC in both power usage and lifespan.
What Anandtech tends to do, though, is cheerlead for some products, like the new GeForce Titan card. For that, it used the word "luxury" and the phrase "luxury item" seven times between the blurb and the first page. Anandtech makes people think its reviews are comprehensive, but often they are flawed.
The competition for the "840 Series" is a budget MLC drive.

All in all, I still think I will fair our better than my current 7200RPM drives by making this change. I plan to mirror the drivers to get some fault tolerance.
Thanks for the feedback.

I do not understant what the Wiki is saying.
How does it compare to my Agility 3?

This is purely my opinion, and I am not going to bother finding references to back it up. But I think that an Intel brand SSD is worth ten of most other brands in terms of reliability. I have written four Tebibytes of data to my 80 Gigabyte Intel X-25M. It still runs perfectly.
With one of these drives, it would be dead several times over by now. (A single bad sector can and absolutely will kill the drive and everything you are doing on the system at the time. You can and will have lost data, and there is simply no way around that fact.)
I will not say all brands but Intel are inferior, but I will say I am sticking with what I know is flawless. Money is tight, but I will save extra to buy a real brand that actually supports the drive.
Good luck to those of you who brave the risk. I hope you have spare drives to archive your data regularly.

B/c of/in that episode it kind of directly correlates the performance of the two cars as the performance difference in Pro vs. Regular and addresses the MLC vs TLC differences with that happens in that specific episode between the two. Or why the hell would I bring up a car (Noble 6000) that no one has even heard of?

Is this correct?
