[quotemsg=18691076,0,328798][quotemsg=18690024,0,260807]I still like what samsung is doing with their ssd's better. Intel though, will always have a place in consideration - especially at a discount.[/quotemsg]Intel has multiple price points and reliability/performance levels.
The main reason I've bought Intel drives is the reliability features found in their 500-series and data center products. Crucial is the only brand in whose consumer drives I've found comparable features.
Samsung offers great performance, but their reliability has traditionally been a step down (just going by product reviews on Amazon and Newegg, every time I've bought SSDs).[/quotemsg]
Yeah. Im going by the overwhelming adoption and performance of the samsung drives. My comment was a bit of an understatement and yeah, price consideration of the better intel drives. You can never knock intel except for price considerations and even though they may not be at the top of a buyers list they have a way of making everybody take notice. I wanted "only" intel when they came out with their consumer ssd's. When kaby lake comes out, it will be intel that will introduce x-point that some say will be another generational shift in ssd performance seemingly like that had when we moved from spinning drives to ssd's. Thats crazy. 1,000 times faster then a midrange ssd? 1,000? So will we be on the verge of a pc that will complete a boot before we turn it on? Thank intel for time warping pc,s.
