My idea is to replace my 120GB with the 256GB as the OS drive. I will put games on the 120GB and use the 256 for OS+Programs/downloads and other miscellaneous things.

I want the OS drive to be real reliable and I hear that the 840 pro is just that.

I was going to go with the 240GB version of the V300 or the HyperX 3K, but I noticed that the 840 pro isn't much more now.. and since I'm paying for it why not get the better one for $50 more?

The reason I asked about exceeding the posted speeds is because the V300 exceeds them on my PC. Any idea why that's happening? Do the SSDs just vary or something?

Ah interesting. Here's a test with AS SSD. I've heard having 20% or more free space is a good idea on SSDs but right now mine is pretty full. I have 3GB left on it. Anyway here it is:



So would that mean that it's actually under-performing?
