    Seagate finally offering a down to earth priced internal 4TB HDD.

    This is a great read about the external version of this 4TB drive: http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=26140.0 4TB Seagate Faceoff - DX vs DM Basically, there are two configurations, 5 platter 800G or 4 platter 1000G. I think it might be worth trying to check before...

    Samsung 840 Series TLC 250GB SSD Review @ [H]

    @tft_newbie The first image is for 830 512GB on primary SATA II port. Second image is for 840 Pro 256GB on DVD/secondary SATA II port. I had to get the newest ATTO version. Mine old version looked different, it was version 2.02, so about 45 versions old (12 years). Funny. You can...

    Samsung 840 Series TLC 250GB SSD Review @ [H]

    Yes, it is a SATA II issue. When I put my 830 in a Mac Mini on SATA III the same drive read was 500 MBps and write over 400 MBps sequential. I was really surprised the same drive was so slow on SATA II, yet thrilled it was so fast on the Mac Mini. Regarding your SATA II mobo, I read many...

    Samsung 840 Series TLC 250GB SSD Review @ [H]

    The 830 500GB does not achieve 300MBps on SATA II, rather over 200MBps. I put an 830 256GB into a Mac mini SATA III with potential 600MBps, and it achieves approximately 500 MBps read and over 400 MBps write. The benefit of SATA III is big. Later today, when I get to my laptop, I will post the...

    Samsung 840 Series TLC 250GB SSD Review @ [H]

    I was in same situation as you, and I got the 256GB 840 Pro. So, I say yes to return and get the Pro. Others might say get the 830 for reliability as we do not know about TLC. I have SATA II in my laptop. The primary drive is an 830 500GB for the OS and other stuff. I added a CD/DVD...

    Oh my god, I love this thread. I only read the first three pages and I'm rolling. Must stop reading further, and save for future entertainment. I have previously heard (almost) every argument dozens of times, but rarely all in one place. Recording my amazement is my only contribution...

    Samsung 840 Series TLC 250GB SSD Review @ [H]

    I think a web bug exists on page 2 of your 840 Pro review. Under features I see the 840 chart rather than 840 Pro. This bug is with the Pro review. www hardocp com /article/2012/12/10/samsung_840_pro_ssd_review/2 I love the new 840 review. Thank you.
