Another SSD Thread Purchase Decision
 
Hello everyone. I am comparing the OCZ vector 256GB and the Samsung 250GB TLC drives. Does anyone have any opinions or personal experience yet with these drives? My Vertex 2 120GB drive is running out of space and I would like a larger system drive.

I personally am staying away from Tri Level Cell NAND until it has proven itself for -at the very least - one generation. There are too many ??? over durability / longevity and even long term performance. If you are looking at the 840 line, I would opt for the 840 Pro.

I think you made a good point on the Samsung TLC purchase. I'm doing more reading on the new OCZ Vector as it looks like OCZ is getting their game together for this product. I have never had any issues with the Vertex 2 I am currently running.

OCZ Vector 256GB vs Samsung 840 Pro 256GB
 
Any forum members have personal experience with these drives? Would appreciate feedback. Thanks

Samsung Pro. The Vector is good kit...but the Sammy is more well rounded.

Bought a 256g Pro a few weeks ago and love it so far. Will be picking up another for RAID when I can. As good as I had hoped it would be.

I'm playing with a 840pro now and love it so far. Might get to some benchmarks of it tonight after the game. Go Bruins Go! :bananafunky:
