I have many SSDs of various sizes (approx 128GB, 256GB, 512GB) and various brands (Crucial/Micron, Intel, Samsung). I'm looking to acquire my first 1TB SSD (approx is fine — 900+GB will do). I have a slight preference for Crucial, but when I searched at Amazon, I was surprised to find four 1TB choices:
Then I looked at Samsung and the plot thickened — three more 1TB choices:
The entire price range from top ($550) to bottom ($370) differs by only $180, so let's say that price (within that range) doesn't matter. While there's a temptation to think that a more expensive product is better, this is not always the case. So I'm looking for some advice from the hardware experts here to help me choose.
If it matters, the drive is going into an HP EliteBook 8460w laptop, W7 Pro 64-bit, Core i7-2630QM/2.00GHz (quad-core), 16GB DDR3-1333/PC3-10600, currently with a Crucial MX100 512GB SSD
(which the new 1TB drive will replace). Thanks much, Joe
Price vs performance here ive heard every good things from the new samsung 3Dnand chips - if your want the quickest read and write go with 850 pro. That's my opinion. I gave you two reference links that should help support my argument.
