    binary logic sells samsung 850 evo 250GB at 12k but they open it up and use it for a while.

    it's better to buy from abroad via @minitt bhai or other FB groups.

    samsung 850 evo is a solid budget buy IMO.

    It's worth every penny. The single biggest bottleneck on a modern PC is the 7k drive. Also these SSDs are not really manufactured in BD, so no point blaming on BD products.

    What I've heard is Binary opens the SSDs and uses them before selling, so you are not getting an intact product.

    does not its just decrease loading time of windows and other application like games or other software??? real world advantage like fps increasing or rendering time very much limited to cpu ,ram,gpu config....so unless u have a good config of cpu,ram,gpu ...a ssd is unnecessary....bt u should try it if u think ur computer is slow for hdd...

    You should consider buying SSDs ONLY after you are fully satisfied with your pc's gaming performance.

    In short words, suppose you are extracting a 60GB GTAV iso file. While doing that in a normal hdd, you cant do any other thing with your computer like watching HD movies, playing games or even browsing. SSD helps in these scenarios. With an SSD installed as your OS drive, you wont be even able to feel that such a large zip/unzipping is going on at the background. True multitasking starts with SSDs.

    Second point is, if you have tiny RAM like me (8GB), you are supposed to turn your pagefile ON in your HDD otherwise you will get memory shortage error while playing heavy games. Now, while your pagefile remains in HDD, which we all know is the slowest storage device on earth, you are bound to get random stutter while texture loading during the gameplay. In this case, SSDs can help as it is much much faster in random reading than the spindle based HDDs. But keep in mind that RAM is still way more faster than the SSD so if you have abundance of ram like 16GB or 32GB, you can turn your page file off to save some random writes on it which pagefile does. But if you buy Intel 750 ssd, that's an complete opposite scenario. (I will explain later if you insist).

    > I bought Transcend 370 128GB for my laptop a month ago. From UCC.

    How much was it, and is it actually good compared to the 850?

    I bought a new laptop recently, and the 5400RPM 2.5" drive inside is driving me insane.

    @dk3 Unless you don't use a program which heavily dependent on random writes, there is no actual real world difference between a Samsung and a Transcend ones. On the contrary, in my personal case, i do write a lot everyday in storage. So, for reliability, i would choose Transcend over the Samsung as Samsung has officiually 72TB (256GB Model) of endurance rating and Transcend 370 has 280TB (256GB Model). Although an Anandtech review explained that the TLC V-Nand (TWC enabled) will last more than 4 years with 100GB of writes per day on it, sometimes 100GB is too little for me as i write a lot of games and movies.


    If you can, buy Sandisk Extreme PRO, that is some serious machinery and probably the only SATA ssd on earth which doesn't get slow over the time.

    Same.

    My older ultrabook had a msata ssd inside, that was nice. This one however had to be bought locally, and they do anything they can to keep costs down here, eh.

    I'm trying to decide if I should wait and get the 256G Samsung, or take the plunge and buy the Transcend.

    Well, i used intel 530 and Crucial M4 before, honestly, zero practical difference.

    i've heard that GTA V takes a long time to load,(i cant play it, right now cause my radeon 6850 died recently & waiting on the witcher 3 benchmarks, for getting a gpu). so, where can i find a Sandisk Extreme PRO, & how much would it cost me?

    It will cost you around ~16k (240GB) if you buy from abroad through the FB groups.

    GTA V uses over 4.7GB of ram and over 8.5GB of pagefile. So, if you turn the pagefile off for smooth gameplay experience, you gonna need at least 16GB of ram.

    SSD is good, but u can try SSHD also with more storage and satisfactory performance.

    It's not about running intensive programs. Tell me this are you going to stress your PC 24/7 running programs like Furmark/IBT? This just an example.

    An SSD improves upon the random read/write that Windows does and that speeds up the desktop experience by quite a bit. Also if you see my original post here, I mentioned "modern PC". I assumed people are on Core i platforms with atleast 4GB Ram and a dedicated GPU. For example, going from i5 -> i7 won't benefit much if you are gaming and already on 1080p or above. CPU performance starts to be negligible the higher you go. Also if you have 8GB, going 16GB won't help much, just that you can multitask a lot more and the programs can be twice as intensive. Also changing motherboards to better ones only improve upon reliability, actual performance increase is very nominal.

    The only thing that differs here is an upgrade to a new GPU, but high end GPUs cost a lot here in BD, almost spending 30k-40k for an upgrade is really hard, atleast for people like me. So if you have 7-9k, spend it on an SSD.
