I bought a 500GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD
It was time for an SSD now that they are much cheaper and just as reliable as the HDDs.
This model uses fancy new V-NAND
This thing just screams.
It’s a bummer that the motherboard I’m using this on caps at around 410MB/s on its SATA III 6Gb/s port.
This SSD is supposed to hit 550MB/s (I guess saturing SATA III entirely).
Still that’s 10x+ more transfer rate than the HDD I had in there.
