Kinda curious about this as I'm generally pretty picky about what brand I use for my storage. Spinners I generally stick with Western Digital or HGST. SSD's (for my main rig, anyway) I've always stuck with Samsung. However, my current 120gb Evo is getting fuller by the minute and I'm finding it hard to keep space freed up. So I'm wondering, is the price premium of Samsung really worth it? Are there any other brands out there that hold up to the overall speed, quality, and longevity of Samsung? If paying the price premium for a 250gb or 500gb Samsung is worth it, I'll gladly do it. BUT, I know other brands prices are cheaper. So my question is this; any suggestions that compete overall (IOPS, writes, reads, fault tollerance, resiliency, etc) to Samsung drives?
