Allright, so I've been eying the ever increasing more popular Samsung 840 Pros series for some time now even though my free Intel 520 cherrville was doing me good, I just kept hearing more and more how awesome the 840 all around and of course being a geek, I was getting jelly and having desires, as well as I wanted more room for my games instead of having to delete them to keep open space up for SSD longevity reasons. Well, I managed to snag at long last a 840 pro 256gig for a great deal last week on Newegg and it just came in today after I got back home from working on the road, I was so excited to compare em! For my first SSD, this 520 has been a really great drive with nary an issue. I decided to go with two popular benchmark utilities so I could compare the two on my own setup. I deleted a few games, ran CC cleaner and ran Intel optimizer to get best results show here. Again, sure blows away my WD Caviar Black . Wanting to do it the right way, I did a complete OS rebuild as I just like doing a full rebuilt once a year to get rid of bugs, registry issues, dead file etc.... I installed latest drivers for everything including Samsungs software and firmware. Sure does look sexy in there! WOW! I couldn't believe the difference benchmark wise! Now im totally pumped! about getting some of my games installed and really seeing what this bad boy can do! Samsung's smartphones are kicking butt, I love my Note 1 and Note 2! Their SSD's are kicking butt and their TV's are really nice! I wanna replace my aging Sony with one. Samsung FTW!
