Solved HDD upgrade question which SSD is best for speed

Specs: Windows 7
What's the best option when upgrading my hard drive. I use photo shop and photo shop plugins and require more speed, My standard 7200rmp hard drive when using photo shop plugins has too much delay. I was looking at maybe a Samsung 840 Series 500GB 2.5 inch SATA Solid State Drive. The only thing with this SSD is it has a slower Sequential Write Speed: Up to 330MB/s. Would I notice much difference between 330MB/s to 500MB/s for the more expensive pro version?

✔ Best Answer

i recently built a machine for someone that uses AutoCAD and CorelDraw and i opted for the Samsung 840 Pro drive, according to him, compared to his OLD pc which has an OCZ SSD, the new machine is much much quicker and smoother.

In fact i upgraded someone elses machine with the samsung pro and they also claim to notice massive improvement is speed and response, i am doing the same with my machine sometime next week too.

i know the pro is expensive, but i can tell you first hand the feedback i have recieved from my recently builds is awesome. I would probably go with it to be honest.

I upgraded my machine with the Samsung 840 pro 256gig. Awesome improvement in speed. Especially with the Samsung magician software which allows you to perform a few tweaks and performace enhancements, i really like the drive, however the Samsung EVO looks extremely good too, albait expensive.
