how does it compare to a 830/840/pro? I only found the 250gig review on anandtechMake sure you gave a high watt power supply (750+) to run this solid state drive. Otherwise you may experience issues with your PC powering off by itself.

Your going to start seeing A LOT more of this from BB. There new company structure is going to be based on competing and beating online retailers..They have to or they are going out of buisness. They finally realized people were just coming into there stores, seeing what they wanted then buying it online. They actually said this flat out, along with another statement saying who is going to buy a $85 HDMI cable in store when you can get the equivalent quality or better online for $5.Best Buy with good deals on computer hardware? What kind of world is this??
Samsung and Intel are the leaders in SSD reliability. The Intel 520 benchmarks better than the Samsung 830 or standard 840, the 840 Pro is faster than the 520. Real world you would not notice the difference. The 520 uses an Intel vetted and improved Sandforce 2281 controller plus Intel's best Nand.I love the BBY review of this drive:

With this 520 series drive i hope to see some improvement, and i with the rugged testing and 5yr warranty i no worries.. Plus 180gb vs 60gb for my main drive will stop me from worry about that now
If the current OS is installed on an SSD (any SSD) then yes you can just image it over. Alignment and cache settings should already be optimized for SSD.Hey i am somewhat out of the loop on keeping up with SSD's..I got in really on the 1st gen stuff, OCZ Agility like i mentioned earlier.
Can I use Win8 to just make an image of my drive and just re install that image onto the Intel 520? Or should i do a fresh install on the 520?
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/589?vs=529Just looked at some benchmarks... Is the 520 really that much better than the 330? It looked like the main area was in incompressible data.
I jumped on the New Egg deal the other day for the 240gb drive at $139. I think I value the extra 60 gigs of space more than I value the performance. I am on SATA3... am I making a mistake?
