Benchmark:
128GB OCZ Vertex 450 - Blue
250GB Samsung 850 Evo - Green

Other than the benchmark (Random Read from Aida 64), I personally am not too sure if it was worth paying the extra premium on the 850 Evo compared to another brand however I heard that the warranty is excellent and that Samsung uses it's own made parts for the whole manufacturing unlike other SSD companies.

Thoughts?

Feel free to share your Aida 64 Random Read Benchmarks.

I'm getting a new SSD as mine failed earlier today, Was going to just get another HyperX Fury 240gb, but after seeing those speeds I might spend the extra money and invest in one of those. Nice bit of kit buddy!

I already had an SSD though. I had the OCZ one for my OS. But I think the OCZ one may be dying so I got this instead as a precaution if I decide to RMA it for the second time.

Now I moved OS to this and using the OCZ one for some games like Arma 3.

I have an 840 Pro and an 840 EVO. I saw a chart at tomshardware.com about the read and write speeds and the 850s aren't that much better than the 840s.

I've only heard good of Samsung's SSDs compared to other brands, so that's something. I just heard there's not an incredible difference between 840 and 850 but feel free to correct me on that.
