Yeah, that's awesome for that model. My friend ordered one on the 10th. He's in another state and I'll be providing remote support. Wish us luck!

There's that Enterprise mentality again! We use them a lot at the jobsite. About 5 years ago they had the only reliable SSDs.

These days, Samsung is crushing it (consumer drives anyway). Check out the latest SSD article: http://www.hardware-revolution.com/best-...olution%29

Based on that, Samsung actually has lower failure ratings then Intel, in addition to much better performance, cost and has some of the best management software.

i like the 840 series and have used them when they first came out, but when using them with certain AMD systems you have to be careful and use the microsoft sata drivers instead of the AMD drivers.
