 Share

Hello, how are you all doing

So I purchased a 840 EVO from a site and they sent me a 840 128GB non evo and it'll take a month for me to 1.Send it back 2.Get a refund. 3.Buy another and get it shipped to me, so what is the speed difference between the two and should I send it back or should I just keep it

Are you just going to use it to boot off of?  I'd get a partial refund and use the 840, realistically you won't notice any difference in boot times or snappiness of the machine.

Were did you get those old drives? They have been out of production for quite some time.

The 840 (basic) model you have is pretty much on par with the evo when it comes to reading data but write speed is much worse.

If the evo is writing at around 500 MB/s, the basic model struggles to get to 300 MB/s.

Personally I would either have it replaced or if you can live with it, ask for a refund. Obviously you got a lesser product.

The evo is basically the same drive with a new tweak which is won't be noticable.

I say keep it.

Bought them from a used marketplace in UK called Cex, just don't feel like waiting a whole month for a new SSD to show up just because of their staff being unable to spot three extra characters as they've got a tendency to hire dropouts or those whom failed their grades

Interesting marketplace, reminds of websites from the early 2000s, real retro, I like it. I guess for the price you likely paid and if the drive works, sending it back is probably not worth the hassle. Like I've said, read speeds are fine so unless you need to write a lot of data to it, which is doubtful given the size, I'd say you will be fine.

Just a bit pissed off as even if I wanted a refund for the price difference between the two I'd have to still send it back

Huh?  Show them you received the 840 and not the EVO, they should credit you the difference.  Or is it that type of place, that you take a risk even shopping from?  If that, you knew you might be rolling the dice, huh?  :(

It's the type of place that when in fault it'll still take exactly a month to get an 840 Evo as they said to send it back which is a week, then two weeks for a refund, then another week for the 840 evo to show up... and said I'd have to return it if I wanted my money back already emailed about all of this

21nm -> 19nm TLC and the introduction of TurboWrite, which is just Samsung's patented term for SLC caching. The first just changes the die density (64Gb -> 128Gb) for higher capacities, the second impacts write performance.
