New HD time
Some of you may have seen the post I made *****ing about my old HD that crashed. Well, I swapped an old HD from a Win7 laptop I had and my Win8 laptop still doesn't seem to like it. It will hang from time to time for no apparent reason. Apps will be running and suddenly stop, that's when I know the whole system will be hung up because I can't bring up File Explorer, or anything. Give it a few minutes and everything will be back to normal. I even re-installed Windows 8 and it is still being weird.

So, I've decided to buy a new HD and put that old HD back into my Windows 7 laptop.

Here are two HD's that I've narrowed it down to:
(SSD) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6820147247

(HDD) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6822236564

I don't really need the extra 130 GB that comes with the HDD, and from what I hear the $30 for speed upgrade is well worth it. So I think I'm leaning toward the SSD.

Any hardware buffs out there care to provide some insight? Hell Guardian, you out there?

RE: New HD time
I would go with the SSD regardless because of the reliability and speed factor.

RE: New HD time
I typed a lengthy reply but power went off before clicking send Sneaky

For that price the 840 is a steal but its mainly because the 850 has been released, Samsung's and Intel's drives offer the best reliability around.

You should definitely get the SSD,and for storage you can just get an internal HDD and buy a cheap USB rack for it.

However while this discounted price is great, i would suggest going with the Pro series as it comes with 5 years warranty from Newegg and 10 years from Samsung if you are concerned about the cells dying too quickly for your usage if you are going to use it in heavy I/O operations.

Congrats already on the great speed boost, you will never be able to use an HDD again...believe me Both Thumbs Up

RE: New HD time
Thanks for the input. I did go ahead and order that SSD. Can't wait to see it in action.
