What SSD do you recommend?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

First off sorry if this is in the wrong place because this is my first time posing in this forum..

We'll anyway, I'm looking at upgrading to an SSD. Right now I'm looking at the 840 Evo 120gb

What I will have on the SSD?

Battlefield 4

Adobe CS6

visual studio

And of course my OS

, the rest of my stuff I will have on my 2tb. So do you think the 120gb will be able to hold all that stuff? Or should I go up to the 250gb?

120gb = $104 NZD

250gb = $175 NZD

And do you think the Evo is a good choice?

Thank :)

I'm actually desperate. My system is taking over 5 minutes to boot to 8 but my motherboard doesn't have AHCI, just IDE.

My OS and ~30 apps take up ~60Gb, plus a game can be ~50Gb. I'd go with the 250Gb model, that way you can put a couple games on it

One from a reputable/reliable manufacturer with a decent warranty. It's a vague answer, but honestly, all SSDs are extremely fast and (in my opinion), you'd be hard pressed to notice any performance difference from one to another in real world applications.

I have two retail Evo's. A 250GB and 1TB. They're both super fast.

I also have two OEM. Just as good. When I need a new SSD, I'll buy another one. I recommend you get a 250GB also. :)

But do you think that a 120 will be big enough to hold the things I specified?

120gb = $104 NZD ($82 USD)
250gb = $175 NZD ($138 USD)

Not an SSD with a Sandforce Controller. well not now anyway. Intel did it right with the 520 and there are back on retail on newegg. I would say Sandisk Extreme II , .  Intel 730 if you can get it  on sale.  And the Samsung 840 pro is still going in stress tests from 2 years ago.
