    I think the Plextor M5P is an excellent choice. The performance is almost as good as the Samsung 840 Pro, but the M5P has been out for several months now and no serious problems reported, unlike the 840 Pro.

    Also, at 512GB, the M5P is one of the few SSD models that is not slower than the 256GB model.

    No, the Plextor M5P is a better choice than the Corsair Neutron.

    I am only trying to help you look at other possible options.

    From what I have seen in other reviews so far, looks like the samsung 840pro has higher praise for the most part.

    Either one would be good.

    Check this link out for reviews....

    Hope that helps.

    I have an Intel 520 and like the software with it. I like to manually run trim when I feel like it. No such software for Plextor it seems :(

    I was interested in the 840 Pro but am a bit confused as to whether it is reliable or not.

    Price is about $450 for the Plextor. Wish it was $350 but still not too bad for the 512GB.

    Crucial M4 512GB all the way.. 010G makes it faster then Windows 8 makes your ssd even faster, for example, my DAW app used to take 5 second to launch,,, "not open a project" just app. Now it takes 3 seconds. It used to takes 3 minutes to do Registry Life registry defrag, With 8 it takes 5 seconds....... things are snappy and stable I took this pic when I hit 2222 a little while back,,,Im using 512k cluster size on top of that, default is 4096.. I was on 512 put the image from external onto SSD and boooom 3 minute boot time of 7 went to 20 seconds......now with 8 my boot time "To the desktop" is about 15 seconds

    No, you are not. You need to pay more attention to what you are responding to.

    This post looks familiar.
    It doesn't even have the screen shot "you" took when you hit 2222.

    According to that comparison it did in all but one category. I don't think that you'd err with either device but for 512MB M5P wins hands down price wise.:cool:

    Don't have a clue as to how you got all of that out of my post. I simply agreed with another poster that your post seemed very similar to how another individual words his posts.

    I go out of my way on these forums to respect everyone, no anger was expressed, I certainly am not mad or irritated.

    You, for some reason, read my post as an insult which it is not. Just put me on your ignore list if I have offended you. I will do the same.
